Found a new game store.

I ran across a new game store in the Crossroads area called Uncle's Games. I picked up a game called The Great Dalmuti, a good muli-player game I played a few years (about 8 or so years) back. I saw a few other games I would like to buy, like Guillotine, The Settlers of Catan, Robo Rally, Carcassonne and a new expansion The Princess & the Dragon. Now all I need is more money for those games I saw.
I also want to add that I heard a podcast about a game called The Awful Green Things From Outer Space, it sounded like a good 2 player game.

the Glow Brick

This glow in the dark nightlight is as simple as it gets: a light bulb set in a clear solid brick. Recharges from energy in natural light during the day - glows at night!

To me, it looked like a cool product. Check out the main site here.

Our HERO game.

This game was played on September 4th in the year of 2005 using the HERO game system with Fantasy HERO setting.

The game started out by Gregor and Vaden taken the orc prisoner back to camp. Vaden got a arrow to the chest. Gregor went ahead to attack the creatures that attacked us, while I made sure the prisoner does not go anywhere.

Gregor rushed ahead to attacked two of the goblins going towards the third. While Vaden activated his hidden power.

Gregor attacked the three goblins while Vaden came up behind them. With Vaden's strength increase, he pick the prisoner with one hand and came to Gregor's aid to dispatch the goblins. A arrow was fired at Vaden, it missed him, but not my new orc shield.

The last goblin that hit Gregor, got lucky and knocked him out. Vaden had time to line up his shot to do the maximum damage to the group of goblins. With the orc in hand, Vaden tossed the orc (feet first) hitting two of the goblins, killing one and knocking the other out. The one goblin that was left was in shock seeing a 6 foot orc tossed like a spear. Vaden came up to the shocked goblin and finished it off with another blow. Gregor soon recovered, glad the battle was over. Vaden checked the orc, finding that his leg was broken, Vaden did what he could to patch up his wounds (we did need him alive to take it back to town).

We got back to town where father questioned the orc and finding some good info about on why the orc and goblins are so active over the last few weeks. Some outside group has been attacking different groups of orcs and goblins thru out the area with our town crest on their shield. To our surprise, one of the attacker was killed and beheaded.

A deal was made with the orc, we will head to the 3rd orc/goblin camp to have a look at the head of the attacker. At the start of our journey, Gregor found out the hard way that his water was poisoned. Sence none of our water was poisoned, it was thought that it was personal and the main person that came to mind was the gambler that had his hand cut. We had Gregor rest off as much of the effects as possable and then we headed off. We made it to the orc/goblin camp with no problens, this time.

Under a white flag, we met with orcs and got a chance to view the head of one of the impostor that attacked the orc village. The head was not someone any one knew. After Gregor had his mind read (with permission) we got some time to look in this issue of the attack on the town. As the meeting was winding down, Vaden had a mental attack done on him.

... and fade out. (end of session)

Wacky news

Three robbers were caught after they took pictures of themselves with a mobile phone they stole.
They also took 20 tonnes of fertilizer from Petrobras Energy in Rosario, Argentina.
The mobile was set up to send every picture taken to a personal webpage.
After the pictures were posted they were analysed by the police and the robbers identified.
All three robbers were arrested.
A police spokesperson said: "Little did they know that all their pictures were being instantly sent to a webpage.
"They took so many it was very easy to identify them, it was the easiest arrest ever."

3.2: Number of unwashed dishes contained in the average sink. (Maxim)

What is .2 of a dish? Is this saying we wash broken plates or that we have very small plates that we use.
