Today would have been our 23rd Wedding Anniversary

Today would have been our 23rd wedding anniversary for Janet and I. My dearest Janet I am missing you so much today. 

Proverbs 31:10- 31 Really describes you and I won't quote the whole thing here, but here are a few lines I have to quote.

v10 -12 A wife of noble character who can find?
She is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her
and lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm,
all the days of her life.

v20 She opens her arms to the poor
and extends her hands to the needy.

v30-31 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Honor her for all that her hands have done,
and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

In my eyes your beauty never faded but was a constant part of who you are because beauty was deeply embedded in your noble character and wrapped in love, God's love.

You always loved hot air balloons and every time you saw one you thanked God for the gift of seeing it. Here is picture you would have loved. I love you! David

Trailblazer Game Stamps - Kickstarter

Check out this Kickstarter for Trailblazer Game Stamps, it is an awesome product. Finally a way for those who cannot draw to create awesome looking maps! 

Follow the link for full details, below is a sample of the information.

Game Stamps are a map-making tool for role-playing games, which can be used right at the table as you play. 
The Trailblazer stamps depict iconic terrain such as mountains, forests, or seas.
Whether you're preparing for a campaign or mapping the adventure as it unfolds, the stamps let you create attractive paper and ink maps in a fraction of the time it would take to draw them.
All of the artwork is compatible with 1" hexes and grids, making the stamps ideal for open-world games.
Stamp each hex as the players explore it, or pass the stamps around the table and create a shared world.
No matter how many people contribute to it or how many sessions it takes to explore it, the map will be detailed and consistent.

Kickstarter - Spiral Isles

A new Kickstarter is out and it is a pointcrawl adventure module for 5th Edition and Swords and Wizardry rulesets. The link is Kickstarter - Spiral Isles. Just to be clear, I do not run other people's adventure modules - ever. But the reason I am recommending this is because 
Spiral Isles is an OSR pointcrawl adventure for both 5th edition and Swords and Wizardry. The adventure is designed to give dead characters a chance to return to life, or as the framework for a campaign into the underworld. The result of this crowdfunding effort will be a 50+ page, landscaped module, mostly black and white with select, thematic, colors. 
Emphasis added! 
Death, the close of the final chapter. For most, a final destination was set in life; paradise or damnation- either, a proper course. But an unnatural force claimed you, pulling your spirit into an eerie, shadow realm. In the Spiral Isles your fate is placed back into your hands. One. Last. Time.  
This is sufficiently original and intriguing that it merits support and publication. I believe it is a gold mine of good ideas that can be used in your own campaign and thus is valuable as a resource and some of you do run modules and it appears to be of good value that way too. As he also states

  • Turn a total party kill into a new adventure.
That is an excellent idea and one that is to the best of my knowledge little explored, up to now.
