 I know I have been really quiet here for a bit, trying to wrap up everything for Thirteen Parsecs. But I am taking a break to let you know I will be participating in Dave Chapman's #RPGaDAY2024 for August. I have done it in years past and this looks like a good list of prompts.

Each day roll d10 to go with the prompt:

  6. Create a random table

I am not sure if I'll do just Dave's, both, or a combination.

In any case, it should be fun.

Hmmm. This looks fairly easy. I usually balk because I'm worried I won't finish and wind up never starting at all, bit both sets of prompts seem quite doable. Probably just doing the first - there's more fantasy stuff on the second than I really like and heavens help us all if I have to try drawing anything. No reason to do that to anyone's eyes. :)
