Extra Life and Voynich Theories
As we speak, I am flying over Montana to be a special guest at Great Falls Gaming Rendezvous. Huge apologies for the short update this week! This week's news is exciting but short: I am participating in an Extra Life charity drive to raise money for sick kids, and Onyx Path Publishing has sponsored some sweet Scarred Lands RPG rewards. Awesome!
I also wanted to update you regarding my theories about the Voynich Manuscript. I feel that it's quite possible a woman wrote it, and broadening the scope of why this work was created helps put it in context. Hope you enjoy the speculation!
'Til next time,
