Game Prep: New PC Background and Plot Elements

So, yeah. I’ve done a frankly terrible job of maintaining the blog over the last couple of weeks. As I think I stated in a previous post, I’m in that odd position where I’m not really going to be running (as a GM) for a while and as a result, I’ve allowed my focus to […]

Captain Marvel trailer

So … it doesn’t totally suck but neither is it especially good.
