Thanks to an exceedingly good week away sharing modern tabletop games with people in Hanmer Springs, and escaping only a few hours before the 7.8 quake hit, I managed to get all out of sorts and miss publishing last week’s article. For this I can only ask your forgiveness, mea culpa - mea maxima culpa.
