Well, shit. I have never played an RPG in my life, but I want to play this.
If I can help with this in any way, let me know - but I'm guessing you've got plenty of friends who would be delighted to help. =)

Drop "Seekrit" from the above and you have the essence of the matter.

Dramatis Ingredienti

4-6 avacados
1 tomato
1 onion
a truly excessive amount of garlic (3-4 cloves)
salt (~1 tsp)
black pepper (~1 tsp)
cayenne pepper (~1 tsp)
cumin (~1 tsp) - optional
tabasco (~2 tsp?)
lemon juice or lime juice (~2 tsp) - I usually use lemon

Use a largish bowl. Dice the first three items on the list, and finely chop or press the garlic. Put everything on this list in the bowl and mix thoroughly. The avacado will be somewhat mashed, but I leave it fairly chunky.

Chill for 30 minutes. You don't HAVE to drink or run a tabletop game during this step, but I find that it helps.

Serve with whatever tortilla chips you've got. I usually use either Tostitos Scoops or Tostitos Hint of Lime.

Eli has been known to use spinach leaves in place of chips, as he is on a low-carb diet. Also great as a spread on a sammich or spooned onto an omelet.

This is the best and so are you!
I am so glad you like it!

Today I released a short story, "Dakrah's Familiar," on the Kindle bookstore. Obviously I hope you'll pick up a copy and enjoy it! But even more than that, I would love it if you would write reviews. ;)

There's a new post in my blog, Harbinger of Doom, regarding Rangers in D&D.

Other than that, baby-wrangling and LARP prep take up almost all of my time. We did take a break to play a bit of the new (?) - new to us, anyway - Portal 2 DLC. Short version of my review so far: Amaze.

Hey, how did I miss your arrival? I gotta pay more attention to who's stepping off the bus.

I still haven't played through Portal, let alone Portal 2. I finished the Portal demo, then got distracted by shiny objects. [Hangs head in shame]

Portal and Portal 2 are really worth another look, if the opportunity presents itself. In my opinion, two of the best games ever made for combining puzzles and narrative.

Thanks for the warm welcome to OPW! I like what I see so far. =)

(Welcome to One Post Wonder).

(I just wish the last word in the name of the site started with an R so I could ask you - Would you like to play a game?)

I'm thrilled that at least one person was able to follow my obscure scream of consciousness. Thanks Rabbit.
