Following the Path of the Planebreaker

Greetings people of Earth!

It's been a busy few weeks for me as MCG prepares for our upcoming Planebreaker crowdfunding campaign. (It's "go time" at the end of next week!)

Since I have the honor of being the lead on the design, I've been putting daily thought into all things extradimensional from a 5E perspective. In addition to brainstorming all sorts of interesting player character options—like the Chaos Blade subclass that draws weapons from the Elemental Chaos—I've also of course been generating seeds for interesting planar locations. Places like Ethergaurd, a city that prowls the Border Ethereal. And the Planebreaker itself, a "moon" fleeing a disaster that predates the multiverse...

Rainy but Vaccinated

What's up, my friends?

Here, it's all about what's coming down: the rain! 

Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled to see the rainy season return after a particularly dry and fiery summer in Washington state. And guess what? I'm wearing a sweater. I also wore a hoodie—my new Planetary Society Lightsail Hoodie!—for several days already. Sometime within the next few weeks, I suppose the furnace might even come on. Then we'll know for sure. 

The cooler weather also means more functions happening inside rather than outside. Here in WA state, you'll soon have to show your proof of vaccination. I checked my state records to make sure they were up to date. Lo and behold, according to the state, I've received FOUR doses of Pfizer's jab. What the what? Well, I guess that's probably good enough to get in anywhere, though it's doubled my actual number of jabs. At this point, I'm not even sure it's worth trying to fix.
