First, to Realmwright who recently made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside by taking an interest in some of my digital map work. Be sure to check out his blog and see where he takes the map he selected!
Second, I'd like to thank my buddies, Ruxbin and Tendrilsfor20 for their generous gaming natures. Not only, do they let me bounce ideas off of them, but frequently they bring gifts for exchange and or unsolicited giving. So, thank you for the sourcebooks, piles of Dungeon magazines and other contributions to my nerdly well-being.
So, last week, the Fiancee arrived at work to find a shopping bag of gaming minis on her desk. Apparently, one of her coworkers had a daughter who was into, but had fallen out of an affection for collecting and playing with said minis. Coworker said that the shopping bag was just a few of them and that if we were willing to take the rest off his hands, we could have them.
Well, I arrived home from work today to find that "the balance" had arrived. By Odin's beard, take a look at this craziness!

I am so blown away. This just about makes up for the time I lost most of my Legos by combining them with a friend's before heading off to college, and for my Mom throwing out my Star Wars figurines when I got "too old". I can only hope to pay forward this kindness to others.
P.S. Note to my players... Let the above images serve as a warning. Muahahaha!
