This is just a quick post with news about the first Microlite81 Public Playtest edition, the Second RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund Mini-drive, and my wife's doctor appointment today.
Microlite81 Public Playtest Draft 1.00 Due Wednesday: Barring real life interfering, the first public playtest version of Microlite81 should be available for free download by everyone interested on Wednesday. The current donor version (0.35, see below) is very close to the upcoming playtest release. The main thing is is lacking is the actual playtest info (where I tell people what i think really needs to be looked at carefully in playtest).
Retroroleplaying Cancer Fund's second Mini-Drive: Ended Sunday morning. The drawing for the giveaway items was held at my Sunday game (the four announced items as two Steam games). The lucky winners should be notified tonight or tomorrow. The winners will be announced after they've been notified. I'd like to thank everyone who donated. The next minidrive starts immediately. I'll announce the giveaway items in a post tonight or tomorrow, but one of the items in Mini-Drive 3 will be a copy of Booty and the Beasts in excellent condition.
Wife's Doctor Appointment: My wife wife's old doctor moved to the east coast. So now has the only other doctor in town who deals with post-treatment tongue and mouth cancer patients. She's heard this doctor in action and she's not looking forward to him. She has an appointment this morning. Prayers and good thoughts this morning would be very welcome -- I don't know if they should be for my wife because she has no tolerance for god-complex doctors for for the doctor (because my wife because she has no tolerance for god-complex doctors). Thanks in advance! This appointment is why the winning donors probably will not be notified until tomorrow.
RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund donors can download the current draft of Microlite81 (0.35) via the following link -- you'll need the standard donor password. Remember, the more people support Microlite81 with a donation to the RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund, the more time I can justify working on the Microlite81 to my wife.

The second Sponsor Lords & Wizards (and Microlite81) Mini-Drive for RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund has ended (but the third drive starts now). The goal for the second mini-drive was only $250 with the following giveaway items: The Necromican, Judges Guild Dungeon Tac Cards, The Iron Wind (1st Edition) and Starstone. Each $10 donated gives you one chance at one of these items. This is in addition to the usual PDF downloads and other benefits of a donation to the RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund and sponsorship listings in the upcoming Lords & Wizards game. To get help us pay our cancer treatment related bills (and to get access to some special downloads and a chance at the above-mentioned items), send a donation in any amount -- small or large -- to me via Paypal. Thank you!
As of 21 July 2013, this mini-drive as ended. The Drawing was held at my Sunday game yesterday, Winning donors should be notified within 48 hours. Thanks everyone for you donations. The next mini-drive starts immediately. Donor giveaway items will announced ASAP, but definitely include a copy of Booty and the Beasts -- in excellent condition.
