    Sorry to be scarce. I've been in training today at work. Tomorrow I'm off on a family vacation until the 17th. I'm not sure if I'll be checking in during that time. If not, I'll see you next week. I'm anxious to see if you can finish off the dreaded Vizier's Turban while I'm gone. ;)

    CC Updates

    I've begun adding creatures back to the CC. Rather than doing batches of 10, I'm just going to add 'em in as often as I can get to it. Here's hoping I don't kill 'em all again in the process! :eek:

    This is begging for a giant version

    My turn to be scarce

    We're off to Phoenix for a family vacation tomorrow. I don't know if I'll check in while I'm gone. If not, I'll see you on April 4th. I realized I was negligent in preparing an April Fools Day creature this year, and won't be around to post on that day anyway. If you'd like to partake in...

    February: What are you reading?

    I didn't see the monthly thread yet, so figured I'd get the ball rolling. I finished up The Walking Dead: Book 6. I'm currently reading Imaro 2: The Quest for Cush by Charles Saunders. The Imaro series is incredibly good. Saunders is a true heir to Howard. I'll have to order books 3 and 4...

    This thread will deal with the remaining lycanthropes, therianthropes, and similar shapechangers. I have a feeling headaches are coming my way... :heh:
