What’s the Crock Pot? Just a simmering bowl of lentils and herbs, with a dash of DMing observations. Don’t be afraid to dip in your ladle and stir, or throw in something from your own spice rack.

Hip to be squares

Flip Mat brand footmaps are cool. And they work with permanent and dry-erase markers (kinda … there’s a trick to removing the permanent markings) . They’re re-useable, and come in a variety of terrain.  And they fit into my backpack — and that’s the best part.

I used to draw my tactical encounter maps with crayon. No fuss, no muss, everything was the color it was supposed to be, and snack spillage wasn’t a big deal. I can’t recall why I quit doing them that way.

Now that’s a stretch

I just picked up a tape measure at Menard’s  that is thin and fits on my keychain. Ohhhhh, the possibilities for gridless tactical combat are flooding my brain. Muhahahahaha.
