It was over two and a half years ago I decided that I should stop doodling and jotting rules down in a notebook and start actually composing my own PDF d20 game. I liked the things I was reading on the game blogs and it seemed that the technology was all in place for weirdo RPGers from all over to create and share their visions. It was a lot more work than I thought it would be to actually write and lay out Beacon. It was also a fantastic experience getting it out onto the screen. I don't have an actual inception date but today is the date I started this blog and so it will do as the Beacon birthday. Thanks for hanging around these last two years Its been great getting your comments and and hope to see more in the years to come.
Flaming Carrot kickstarter which is kind of funny because ol' Flaming carrot was the profile icon I used for the account when I started blogging. The Flaming Carrot is a modern day Quixote and for me and he's personified the spirit of someone who would take the time to write and blog about a Fantasy Heartbreaker. He's undoubtedly insane but he is also someone you want to hang around with. And he has a baloney gun. If you aren't familiar with Flaming Carrot you owe it to yourself to drop the 15 bucks for a digital version of this comic.
*I wanted to add a note here that this kickstarter was great, I got all my stuff really fast including the signed Mysterymen graphic novel and a bunch of little Gumby cards and bookmark thingies freebies in the mail. Solid job Mr. Burden. Kudos also for offering the digital comic in so many formats and without any creepy DRM or stuff. You can also buy FC stuff at http://bobburdencomics.com/
