Hi all! :)  I have been very ill for some years now, and off the net for awhile, but for a little while, i'm feeling better enough to be on for a bit.
  Thank you all who enjoy my games, and an especially big thank-you to Matthew-right after inventing renn 2, and while playtesting w/ matthew, I was diagnosed as a brittle Diabetic. it has sapped me of much of my vitality, so much so that I had to give up playing the games online.
  I cannot guarantee, but I will try to be here more often, from this point forward, so I can perhaps comment/help if wanted/needed.
  I will try and resume playing one game, and see if the stamina is there to become more active.
  Once again, I am glad people are enjoying my inventions, thank you for playing them! It feels good to know that you've done something in life that was of benefit to others.

    Eric V. Greenwood

Comments stored as Markdown will be converted to HTML by Parsedown before displaying them. This follows the Github Flavored Markdown Spec with support for Markdown Extra.
