Good Friend/Best Friend

Photo's from times gone by...

Well I did some pre-pub reminiscing and now I've done some post-pub reminiscing. The result? A bunch of photo's of some of my very dearest friends (past and present), many of which who are on LJ and many of which may want to lynch me for putting the photo's up.

I think all the photo's are bloody good though and are a nice trip down memory lane, for not just me but some of you dear readers too...

(RPG) Mongoose's "Holy Grail" License...

There's been some talk on-and-off all year about the 'Holy Grail of Licenses' that Mongoose Publishing has acquired (or is in the process of wrapping up the contract).

It is apparently a big license that has a lot of potential.

I've ended up in a number of discussions with people over the last month or so regarding what this license could be?

Various titles have been mentioned but most of them I have considered not really that big as far as RPGs, getting them into the Mass Market and attrcating new players are concerned.

Some of the titles that have been suggested have already been RPGs in the past (or present, or I know other companies are working on). There is really only one license which could be considered a major - no THE major - license for a RPG that would get a lot of mass market attention and would attract a horde of new (and younger) people into the Role-Playing hobby.

But let's look at some of the ones that have been mentioned:

What do you think would be the Holy Grail of Licenses? and what do you think Mongoose have?

LJ Poetry Index

Thought I'd bump this back up to the top as I've not posted any poetry up here for months (and then some).
Some of my new readers might not have seen any of these (lucky them! :p)

Just for reference (and those who may not have seen them all) I've decided to log the poems I've reprinted in this Journal over the last few months. I'll update it every so often as more poems are added.
