Hello, Shop! It’s been a while since I’ve posted as I took a long hiatus from social media.

Anyhoo, I wrote something a few months ago that I’m pretty proud of. I hope you enjoy it.


Wikipedia and Google delude many into thinking all human knowledge has been made available to our immediate access.
This is a dangerous lie.
Any scholar will tell you of the vast amount of documents and artifacts completely unavailble online, or indeed impossible to easily scan or study online.

Yeah, the urge is upon me. Brainstorming ideas for a Numenera campaign.
