Marty & Tony of the Rolling Dice & Taking Names podcast are pretty cool (but old) dudes. So cool infact that I’ve teamed up with them for a little contest.

It’s here! The 2016 Gaming Calendar is live on Kickstarter.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/th3rdworld/2016-gaming-calendar

Like last year, I will be selling the base calendar all fall but this is your ONLY chance to get a custom calendar where you get to pick what photos that go in it. In addition, those who get a custom calendar also get to add their own custom holidays. So don’t miss your chance to get it.

San Antonio Skyline Small
NOTE: You can click the photo to enlarge it.

Here is a sunset shot of downtown San Antonio. This is about 80% of where we walked and hung out when in the city. Most of the green trees you see are part of the River Walk which is the tourist hot-spot in town.

The Alamo is near the cube-looking statue on the right side of the photo. You can just barely see its dome. It was quite shocking to discover that they literally built the city around The Alamo. I always pictured it in a field somewhere near the edge of town not smack dab right in the middle.

In the newest episodes of Creators Cast, I chat with game designer Sandra Tayler. Sandra has written two children’s picture books, published two essay books, and has several middle grade novels in the works. In addition she runs the behind the scenes business side of the very popular webcomic Schlock Mercenary.

TheAlamo
Note: You can click the photo to enlarge it.

Lisa got a surprise three day weekend and so we headed to San Antonio. It was so last minute that we couldn’t get our puppy-sitter so both Winchell and Page came with us. We stayed at a hotel across from The Alamo and the dogs loved it! There was constant people and always something going on.

All of us had a great time and it was neat seeing The Alamo as well as learning the history of it and the city. I took a bunch more photos of other San Antonio landmarks and I’ll be sure to share them over the next few weeks.
