The Origins Report: Day 1

Well, I didn’t sell any dice, but I did get to check out
the new RAFM minatures, as well as leaf through the new
Nocturnum book. It looks sweet.

Other than that, not much to report yet.. other than the
ridiculously gorgeous girl running around in nothing more

with nothing on underneath.. Where’s a Rustmonster when you

Ooops I did it again

As a few of you have noticed, shoggoth.net moved a second time. In fact if you’re reading this message, you’re on the new server now. Alas, the old server was sucky and WAY overloaded, so we moved her here. She’s doing ALOT better now and has plenty of power.

Thanks go out to Superiority.org Hosting for the swank hosting!
