Laptop bags, restocked and revisited

I've field tested my laptop bag for a while now. I've taken it to events, loaded with laptop and other essentials, and gotten through airports without too much fuss, and I'm still really happy with it. Since I initially wrote about the laptop bag, we sold quite a few of them, and I'm happy to say that they are back in stock on

Here is an interesting article about useful things to keep in your laptop bag:

I was researching how to build a survival kit a while back, and just now stumbled on this pretty good article on how to make a mini-kit out of an Altoids tin - small, inexpensive, and practical. Enjoy.

Here's another good one on how to build a "maker's tin" for you handy types out there:

Join us on September 26th for the first of what is projected to be a three-part game series. The United States has been devasted by an attack crippling the power and communications infrastructure. In the months of hunger, riots and chaos that follow... sections of the former United States fragment into successionist regimes, while the military and government struggle for control of what few shreds of America remain. Deep Umbra is the first of the Eclipse event trilogy, a three part mil-sim campaign in the ravaged remains of America projected to span Florida, Virginia and Georgia. Choose your side... choose what you will fight for when the lights go out.

Visit the Deep Umbra Forums at www. for the full backstory on the Deep Umbra series.

Eclipse Scenario One : Deep Umbra

The Governor of Florida remains loyal to the President. He has National Guard and State Troopers working to restore order within Florida and distribute the limited food and water resources.

An airman from McDill AFB manages to steal a MK87 SADM, man-portable nuclear device, from the SOCOM arsenal, presumably with the intent to sell the device to New America. A Department of Energy Nuclear Emergency Support Team (NEST) is sent by the CivGov to recover the device before it crosses into New America or can be recovered by MilGov forces.

While the governor is loyal to the CivGov, a sizable portion of the Florida population in central and north Florida are sympathetic to the ideals of New America and its hardline stance of America for Americans and a rejection of immigrants and foreigners as having weakened the country to the point of its present collapse.

MilGov and CivGov forces mobilize in central Florida, drawing in around the suspected location of the stolen SADM. National Guard and security forces contracted by the governor move to block MivGov personnel from impeding the NEST personnel recovering the device. Without warning, troops from New America cross into Florida to "protect the liberty" of Americans wishing to join the New American Confederation. The speed at which the New American troops are travelling leaves little doubt that they want to recover the SADM for their own military.

We are back!

...and have a lot of catching up to do before we head out again to GenCon. We will be there as PMCs in Mindgame/PST production's TerrorWerks - an airsoft LARP. Please stop by and check it out this weekend.

"Gen Con Indy is the original, longest running, best attended, gaming convention in the world. For over 40 years, Gen Con Indy has been setting the trend and breaking records. Last year, more than 28,000 unique attendees experienced Gen Con Indy. The biggest complaint we hear is that there is simply too much to do, see, and experience. Get lost in a phantasm of art exhibits. Stare at jaw-dropping costumes, or better yet, wear one of your own. Meet the movers and the shakers in the gaming industry. Check out the newest games and get a sneak peek at the latest editions."

"Welcome to TerrorWerks™ is a fast paced, adrenaline fueled thrill ride that pits your wits and skills inside a customized, fully interactive set. Using special effects, interactive props, a riveting storyline, and armed with specially designed AirSoft weapons, you are thrust into a world where each decision will have your fate hanging in the balance.
