    I loved the show - different as it is from the books - it's how I got into the novels. Many are the evenings where I write up my Dresden game notes with the DVD playing. :)

    If you want to give the books a go, jump in with Grave Peril (Ghosts/Necromancers) or Summer Knight (Fae). The first two books are good, but not Great. Butcher was still refining his craft. He doesn't start the "metaplot" until the 3rd one.

    Game 37 Postgame is Up - "Metastasized Motorcycle Mayhem":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/adventure-log/metastasized-motorcycle-mayhem

    Postgames from Game 36 also up. One from our youngest occasional player (11!! - this is her second, ever) and also one for Erica.

    And two webisodes from the PoV of some very influential NPCs in the campaign... just for something different.

    One of our original 3 players (Warden Jamie Harper's player) needs to step away from the game for a temporary period (expecting 2nd child) so we did a quick small session to place the character in "park" .. he goes off to Houston to beat up on Fomor (those of you who haven't Ghost Story or Side Jobs - spoilers)

    Seems to be a theme, Stagelucas writes a "flashback" short story dealing with the events immediately after the events of the Changes novel (again involving Fomor so if you haven't read beyond the Changes novel, or the Side Jobs anthology... spoilers!)

    "Don't Mess With Texas Women - Erica":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/adventure-log/dont-mess-with-texas-women (with significant NPCs Claret, Midori, Hobbes, and "The Iceman")

    Whew. Long and winding side stories appear to finally wrap up.

    "Godfather - Conor":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/adventure-log/athair-baisti
    (the culmination of an Aspect change and several previously written webisodes... they may have seemed scattered but they were all related - details in the notes)

    "Tea Time and Girl Talk - Midori":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/adventure-log/tea-time-and-girl-talk
    (the final chapter - I hope - of one of the other player's lobbing a plot grenade at Conor - Midori may soon be elevated to a PC in the upcoming months - played "Part time" by Stagelucas - currently the player of Erica - Remains to be seen.)

    So on Thursday most of the group was out for various reasons so we did an experiment.

    In FATE RPG there's the "Bronze rule" which basically states... treat everything like a character (skills, aspects, stress, etc.).

    So we just grabbed a few NPCs and had a fun time with a Side Job exploring a totally different part of our setting/campaign. I was very refreshing to start all over again in a setting that we know so well (we hit 2 years with Episode 40).

    "Side Job - The Birds":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/adventure-log/the-birds

    Postgame Webisode
    "Dana's Journal":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/adventure-log/danas-journal-7-12-13 (one of our very very earliest NPCs - a pre-gen from Evil Hat Game's Free DFRPG Module "Evil Acts":http://www.evilhat.com/home/new-free-casefile-evil-acts-4/ )

    Two more from major NPCs ...

    "Matters of Faith - Barbara":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/adventure-log/matters-of-faith (she discovers her old Foci no longer work... too many things in her life have changed since meeting Matthew)

    "Black Silk - Midori":http://www.obsidianportal.com/campaign/dfd/adventure-log/black-silk (where Midori falls on the 'Pirates vs Ninjas' argument couldn't be more clear)

    Our Austin group moved to Lubbock! O.o ... that should make games more interesting to try and schedule. However, Lance_work send in a postgame anyway.
