Posted by Rampant Coyote on January 17, 2017

Maybe the I’m the only one around these parts that might be interested in this. I’m posting it anyway, just ‘cuz… Pulp! RPGs! In a bundle! Sadly this isn’t a PC RPG Bundle*.

Final Hours of the RetroEngine Sigma Crowdfunding Campaign

Posted by Rampant Coyote on January 9, 2017

If […]

Star Wars, Books, Torment, and Stuff

Posted by Rampant Coyote on December 16, 2016

NaNo Writing Tools Book Bundle Deal Ending

Posted by Rampant Coyote on December 15, 2016

Rocksmith – Today’s the Day

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 22, 2016

I’ve been swamped by the day job worse than… well, pretty much ever, when I wasn’t traveling (traveling comes next week). So I’m sorry the blog has gotten a bit irregular of late. My word count that would otherwise go to the blog has been going into NaNoWriMo, and I’ve only managed to squeak out […]
