Start off with what would be the bad right off: R.I.P. E. Gary Gygax who passed 5 years ago today. Without him, the Roleplaying Game hobby would not be what it is today. All of those who came after him, used the foundation he started.

(And some good!) But in his  honor, those that know this... it's GM's Day. Our own stuff isn't out yet, so sadly I can't say "buy our stuff for your favorite GM"... but support the hobby any way you can. Play a good game tonight, and if you can... go check out sites like Lulu.com, rpgnow.com and DriveThruRPG and check things out. I know DriveThruRPG has a 8 day long sale going on for pages of stuff for GM's day. Check out the rpg's up at Kickstarter too, that need help to make someone's dream a reality. Even $1 can help many of those projects.

(and back to the bad)And if feeling more charitable, for those that might not have heard, Ernie Gygax Jr's house burnt down a few weeks back, loosing everything. there are a few sites out there helping out with auctions and donations to help a man who's trying to continue his father's legacy some links here: Google Search; Facebook Page and of course, Gygax Magazine just released it's first issue... so look for it on any of your sites and maybe pick it up.

Support the hobby, and if I do say so myself... buy INDY if you can.
