Thanks for the update, James. I am glad to hear that the funeral went well and that those left behind are willing to carry on as before in the spirit of those who have departed.

Oh yeah, and happy birthday!
It is a joyful thing indeed to hold intimate converse with a man after ones own heart, chatting without reserve about things of interest or the fleeting topics of the world; but such, alas, are few and far between.

Thanks for the rundown, Jim!

Would have liked to have made the trip; but, alas, it was not to be.

Keep up the great work and looking forward to future products!

Happy Belated B-Day!

Despite my years of roleplaying (since 1982 or 83) I never had the opportunity to use the JG material. It's been nice hearing about Mr. Bledsaw, and the important role he played in old school gaming. My condolensces to affected families, friends, and gamers. Sounds like a guy I would have enjoyed meeting for good conversation and gaming.
