Just picked up “THE CHRONICLES OF DAVIDS.”

Looks entertaining. I like the conceit of THE CHRONICLES OF DAVIDS. I also read a bunch of those Daves on the list, so that’s a pretty obvious draw, too.

The ‘Well, THAT actually doesn’t look… bad?’ BLOODSHOT trailer.

It’s spoiler-y as heck, mind you. I mean, that BLOODSHOT trailer is in TOTAL SPOILERS mode. You Have Been Warned.

Deep-sea Explorers find WWII IJN aircraft carrier.

Oh, this is interesting:

A crew of deep-sea explorers and historians looking for lost World War II warships have found a second Japanese aircraft carrier that went down in the historic Battle of Midway.

Vulcan Inc. director of undersea operations Rob Kraft said a review of sonar data captured Sunday shows what could be either the Japanese carrier Akagi or the Soryu resting in nearly 18,000 feet (5,490 meters) of water in the Pacific Ocean more than 1,300 miles (2,090 kilometers) northwest of Pearl Harbor.

This is part of a larger expedition to find and identify all of the ships lost at Midway, and that’s just cool. So is the fact that we can muck around and do actual archeology(?) at that depth. Tech just keeps improving, hey?

Slloooooooow Day Today.

I mean, really slow. It’s like the rain made everybody stay in, or something. There’s not even any really good trailers to link to. I should take that as a hint, or something.

PS: Mind you, we need the rain. We need a bit more, even.

Item Seed: Set of Stake Knives.

Set of Stake Knives

Appearance: a set of eight stainless steel steak knives.  They are in excellent condition, and in fact can be used to cut steak.  Although few people will, once they find out what the Stake Knives actually do (see below).  

Powers: Treat Stake Knives as equivalent to whatever weapon or substance is most dangerous to vampires in the campaign.  For example: in a Western game, Stake Knives act like wooden stakes in terms of immobilizing and destroying vampires.  In campaigns with more than one particular type of vampire, a Stake Knifes can be ‘reconsecrated’ to a different type by a suitably holy figure after a suitable amount of slightly onerous ritual activity; alternatively (particularly if there are vampire PCs in the campaign) all Stake Knives will work on all vampires equally.  Certainly any Stake Knife can effectively be used in lieu of a holy symbol by sincere religious believers.

Patreon Microfiction: ‘Bring the Jubilee.’

Patreon!

I’d write more Civil War stuff like ‘Bring the Jubilee,’ except that it’s a field of overlapping rhetorical minefields. Although I don’t care about the opinions of the monomaniacal historical illiterates, mind you: I’ve been ignoring them for years. No, it’s the monomaniacal historical literates who would eat me alive. And I am not going to spend six months figuring out just what damned buttons George H Thomas or Nathan Bedford Forrest were wearing at the damned battle of Chickamauga. Life is just too damned short.
