I know I said (nearly a month ago) to watch this space. For those of you that have, thank you. I apologize for not actually giving you anything to watch.
The big news, I suppose, is:

I think this is pretty cool. Not really sure exactly where we’re going to run with this (and at this stage I can’t talk about it even if I did), but what I’ve seen of D&D4 has intrigued me, and I can’t wait to actually get my hands on the books so I can get into it in a bit more depth.
