A window into the life of a dave. Trivia, gaming, family life, useless exercises in distinction-making, and so on. Just another day in nerd paradise.

The Shadow of Yesterday
My friend Clinton R. Nixon, who has written several RPGs, has put together a comprehensive wiki version of The Shadow of Yesterday. It's a great game, and he's released it all with the Creative Commons license, so people are pretty free to do what they want with it. I've seen adaptations of it to play Aztec-themed games, Civil War superheroes, even Watership Down. But there's a lot of great ideas in the 'canonical' setting, too. So if you're a gamer, or just need something interesting to keep you occupied, go poke around.
