Ninety bucks and I get a paper map. I'd rather pay thirty and get a pdf file I can print out myself.

<t>I have no comment regarding the gameplay but for the backstory they're not even trying. The planets name is a random word from the dictionary. Explore the beauty and danger of Planet Coal? It's beautiful...yet deadly. What a surprise! The magical devices are futuristic...but ancient. So we can us...

<t>So they sent a reporter because they thought it was newsworthy to report on a gathering of 800 people in the middle of a pandemic where the virus is spread asymptomatically through otherwise "healthy" people. Pictures from the convention show the crowd to be full of people over 60 yrs. <br/> <br/...
