its okay ross i got your book its cool i guess

im running the everglades on wednesday cause i live in florida

and we all want to play something besides d&d

so like

i dunno

you are cool

i ran eternal glades at gencon

read it before you run it

in hindsight I wish I had made that chapter more clear on the rules - re-reading I could see where some people might get tripped up by a few things

it's super fun though

Ross has a book out?

I think so.

When did that happen?  He really kept it under wraps.  I didn't even know he was working on one!

you guys are jerks

I like to think of us as subsuming the ironic zeitgeist in a subversive new marketing paradigm to synergise with your own efforts. But yes we are.

You're not allowed to use the thesaurus anymore.

Wait, this thesaurus is a necronomicon. That explains so much about marketing.

LEAVE ROSS PAYTON ALONE

HE'S A HUMAN BEING

And yes, the competitions listed in the chapter are kind of confusing - I'm thinking about just making them threats or something.

the part I left out is that they are opposed challenges - use Chris Crash, Sally Slash and Billy Brash and minor monsters as the opposition.

For the race: 5 opposed Feet + P.E. checks by the PCs and the eternal glades NPCs

Capture the flag: Run it as a battle more or less

you get the idea
