In case you missed the news last Wednesday, ampoule I’m in the process of kicking off a second wave of Ultimate Powers Jam posts. If you’re interested in participating, recipe more info can be found at the above link.
The responses so far have been encouraging, with a number of new and previous contributors expressing an interest in participating. It has also been a bit overwhelming, despite my vow to streamline the logistics this time round. There was a time when I could spend hours on end rolling dice and filling out character sheets, but those days have gone the way of Cajun Spice Ruffles and New Coke. I’ve been sending out the assignments as time and patience permits, and will hopefully be up to date by the end of this weekend. (So please don’t think I’m ignoring you if you haven’t received yours just yet!)

Do you really want to leave such an important matter to the Dorito-stained fingers of the game master?
