Got some better blog to hang out on? Anyway, I have more rantaliciousness that I’ve gathered in that effort. I’m astounded that it took me six Continue reading

Well, here we’re about to wrap up the three-part series of posts dedicated to Murphy’s Laws of Combat.  I probably didn’t order them well, and I commented at random on all of these.  Again, I need to nod in appreciation to Archon, who did an awesome and very detailed post about non-combat laws, some of them also Continue reading
