Re: 1190: "Time"

The Torgos chronicles spawned an OTTish d&d game that seems to be having trouble getting started. We have spent the last month walking into a pub. Well it's the kind of pub where they make you write your memoirs before you're allowed to enter (plus I'm a lazy slob when it comes to writing >.>)
