Thread Explosion

I had internet access at home but didn’t want to be entirely rude and sit there and check all of my shit constantly. So, this thread just turned into an 800 pound gorilla before my eyes.

Last night’s orc game over skype felt pretty damned tight. Double-dealing with a dragon, cutting deals with the dwarves, getting a new horde for the Named. Good stuff.
