Two Things Didn't Suck Today

First I got this book in the mail from Amazon; actually one of their affiliated sellers, because it's a used, out of print book, but nevertheless it was nice to see it arrive.

The only real downside to this is that it's book three in the series, so now both two and three have arrived, but one is taking it's sweet time. Fine I've got a bunch of other stuff to read anyway.

The other thing that didn't suck was my discovery of this-

Which can be purchased here.I like me some Roman on Celt action, especially when their is creepy magic involved and it can be used to glean ideas for my own Garnia campaign world, which has both Romans and Celts from Earth transported there through magical means.

Plus, it already has a supplement so you can play as the Britons! Celts FTW!

Which can be purchased here. Now, if you are a little leery of paying over twenty dollars for this pair of pdf files when you don't really have any idea about the game system I have a couple of things to say, first the interior art is top notch - here's a couple of examples they have posted on their website, so I am not giving anything away that they aren't.

Second, it's based on a game they give away for FREE on their website, so you can check that game, Zenobia, out and see if you think it's going to spin your spurs or not before making the purchase.

Third, it got a pretty good review here.

Now the rest of my day pretty well sucked because I pulled a muscle in my back a couple of days ago and it's the kind of thing I would have shook off twenty years ago, now it's got me laid up for days. I also got the invitation to my 25th high school reunion. Between these two things and the fact that when I look in the mirror there is more gray than brown in my beard I am just feeling age hit me hard.
