At the hospital…

Baby Mirabelle, my third daughter, is going to be induced this morning. As soon as the nurses remember we are here in our room. Baby Mirabelle has been kicking her mother’s butt for a couple of months now, far more vigorously than either of our older daughters, but her amniotic fluid seems to be uncomfortably […]

In that post, I discussed the ridable bears. Well, in the above image there are three animals that […]

Lions of Judah: Marie-3

Just to test and compare, I ran a Lions of Judah mech through the SaSS:R stat-making process. Scary stuff, with 20-meter tall mechs. See the stat block at the end if you want to compare it to a SaSS:R military mech: the IMGz. Basically, this is an outdated alien mech that might make an appearance […]

An actual question

A shout-out to the first person to ask a question (who wasn’t a spammer!) Thanks! The question boiled down to: “what is SaSS:R?” and given that I first posted about it (and discussed generally what it was) back in September, I thought it a fair question! I thought a post summing up what SaSS:R is […]

Frustration and progression

I am officially shifting focus to SaSS:R, which I find frustrating because Lions of Judah is the book I want to be writing, but it is simply an acknowledgement of a reality that has set in and seems determined to remain for the moment. That reality is namely that I can work, and work quite […]
