Good news everyone!

Prepare for more gonzo space adventures in...

The Harvester from Outer Space !!!

It's conveniently in time for Christmas gift giving through the expedient space-age sorcery of the internet! Buy one for yourself and one for a loved one. Or keep the one for the loved one for yourself and buy him/her another one (so three in total). Nothing say 'blessings of Christ upon thee and joy to all the world' like an old school p&p adventure filled with slimy aliens, weird thaumato-scientific equipment and of course, fun on the holodeck.

Not yet convinced? Here's what some people have to say about The Harvester from Outer Space:

I can guarantee it's the best module penned by me that you'll read all year! (disclaimer: that might have been said about a previous module already, but that was a lie.) - me

* The Harvester from Outer Space is a delicate study into relevant social issues as isolation, Existenzangst, Weltschmerz and provides the reader with a sobering narrative of the human condition as viewed through an old-school compatible pen & paper module - me

* Stop writing about disgusting slime monsters and take out the trash. - unnamed girlfriend

The Dwarves' battle song

You know you're officially spending too much time on all things fantasy when... a socialist drinking song makes you think of Tolkienesque Dwarves on their way to epic battle. :D Hence: a very loose translation of "Wat zullen we drinken", to the tones of Son ar chistr.
I think I also officially have too much time on my hands.

What shall we be drinking, seven days and nights,
what shall we be drinking, such a thirst!
There is enough for every man, so let us drink as one,
Tap the keg my friend! Yea we will drink as one, not alone!

Then we will be working, seven days and nights,
then we will be working, all for all!
There will be work for every man, so let us work as one,
seven days and nights! Yea we will work as one, not alone!

But first we must battle, no one knows how long,
but first we must battle, for our doom!
For the freedom of every man, so let us fight as one,
together we are strong! Yea let us fight as one, not alone!
