With the PCs’ information written out, we keep this 3x5 card in our view while we prepare for our game. As we sit there staring at our game preparation card, we can let our eyes wander over the list of PCs, backgrounds, and motivations. The more we let them seep into our mental processes, the more likely we’ll start to use their hooks to plan out the game.

Wayne Reynolds appreciation time! This man’s art is two of the top three reasons I started running Pathfinder. His style is hard for me to pin down. All of his characters are super detailed and have little baubles and bangles hanging off of them everywhere. Tassels, ribbons, tattered edges, and fetishes make each character seem believable.

His work can be found in Pathfinder, Magic the Gathering, D&D, Judge Dredd, and the WoW TCG just to name a few.

Love it and can’t wait to see what other pieces he pulls out!

- Mathew out!


1959 Pontiac Star Chief (Bethany Beach, Del.)

Bethany Beach is one of Delaware’s nicest towns and certainly the greatest town on the face of the planet to have been founded by the Disciples of Christ. It may not be as well-known as nearby Rehoboth Beach with its large gay community, and Beltway holidaymakers, but it is every bit as pleasingly quiet as Dewey Beach is obnoxiously rowdy and Ocean City, Maryland, is crowded and commercialized. Doubtless this is attributable, at least in part, to Bethany’s having been a dry town for most of its existence. It was not until 1982 that liquor could be served at all and even today bars are too few in number to attract the rabble.

What is more, some of its residents get permanent “Platinum” parking passes. The owner of this Pontiac seems to have got the first one.
