Only the next hour will give you some answers…
The lads are back from holiday! They’ve been reading stuff, playing games, going to conventions. This week they just about Games Expo, ConDamned and not wearing pants. Also! Bonus content – preparing characters for a con game or maybe just rolling them up at the convention table. Why do one over the other?
