Monday morning, and my body is not ready. Camping at the weekend has left me a broken shell, walking like a grandad. So, of course, we're going shopping. Hurm. Talk on!

This is for Paddy:


I mentioned my dice bag a few times and finally dug it out of the garage this weekend, much to my wife’s dismay (she finds the bag super creepy). The dice shown there are my stone dice (bloodstone, obsidian, and hematite), which I put in the smaller bag and then put that in the main dice bag. Mainly to prevent them from scratching up the crapload of plastic dice in the main dice bag.
