Starting the reading

Well, I'm feeling rested and refreshed.

More importantly, I read Dictionary of Mu lat night. It's an extremely well written book, with an interesting presentation style.

I can't really comment on how useful it is as a supplement yet, since I haven't read Sorcerer, but I ordered a copy at the FLGS so I'll revisit it after I get a chance to learn a little more about the system.

Still, it felt good to start reading product. With the fan sites I started reading were already ones I had seen before, and though they're great and useful sites, it's different to look through something completely new. Something I probably would have missed if I weren't judging.

Still nothing new to report. Still waiting on the original shipment from Canada. I'll probably take tonight off since things are still slow. I have to prepare for my home game tomorrow, but I'll try to get some time in of the Dungeon Tiles tomorrow.

I'm a huge fan of Dictionary of Mu -- and while it has rules for Sorcerer, I feel like there's enough setting-meat in there to make it useful for any game system you care to. I could see it as a D&D setting just as easily -- or a Fate game, which is why I did http://oghmascurse.wikidot.com/

It definitely earns its keep in the setting department, but still, it was entered in the Supplement category, and it's hard to judge some thing's worth as a supplement without knowing exactly what it has to offer.

Besides, I'm not in a hurry at this point, and can afford to be thorough.
