Overlight Review

"A roleplaying game of kaleidoscopic fantasy." That tagline, combined with the above cover art, intrigued me enough to pick up this 2018 tabletop roleplaying game from Renegade Games.

Hello, Internet! I'm going to try being brief this week, since I'm in the middle of working on a thing and want to get back to it. Being intentionally vague here (more on that below). Forward! Reading I've continued to chip away at Moby-Dick this past week. I'd say I'm somewhere between a third and halfway … Continue reading Weekly Update – 6/6/18
