New Feature! Sudoku below Horoscopes and Ledge, play online or print it out!



ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t be afraid to take a day off to sort through your plans, and make sure that you have everything you need for upcoming events and activities. An interesting proposition will get you thinking about new possibilities.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t give away any secrets. Pushing your will or taking physical action will not get you what you want. Situations will be hard to control, and problems will escalate because of misinformation.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Everything will come down to your personal performance. Expect someone to resent you and try to limit your maneuverability. Target what you want, and go about getting it through hard work and honest, fair play.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t give in to someone trying to back you into a corner. Realizing that you can do with much less will be half the battle. Change may not be your cup of tea, but the tables will turn if you are flexible.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A meeting will help you coordinate what you want with the needs of others. Love is in the stars, and by making an effort to please someone, you can ask for what you want in return. An old friend may be dishonest with you now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Look for a deal, and you will find it. Don’t let someone hold you hostage when you aren’t responsible for the turn of events that have unfolded. Take care of your health, and don’t take unnecessary risks.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Think before you take action, and you will avoid making an embarrassing mistake. Things aren’t nearly as bad as you imagine. There is always a silver lining, so sit back and wait for the dust to settle.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Don’t be fooled by what someone is promising you. Rely on your own efforts. Sudden change can be expected, and it will be directly linked to someone you have learned a great deal from in the past.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don’t give in to idle threats. Use your clout and your charm. You can make a difference, but don’t exaggerate in order to do so. Making the wrong person angry can cause setbacks.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Someone will try to talk you out of something that you know you should pursue. Don’t give in to meddling or unrealistic plans. Stay ahead of the crowd with the latest information and the best advice.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You are sitting in a much better position than you think. You have the ability to negotiate on your terms. Your receptiveness will help things move along faster. Your communication skills will be effective, but don’t become emotional over finances.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): If you give in to your emotions, including anger, you will lose sight of your goals and waste valuable time. Secrets will be divulged that may incriminate you or imply you have been involved with something or someone you don’t wish to be associated with.

 

 

 

 


Ask a Ledge Guy:

by Andrew Juhl


“Ledge Guy, my friends invited me to start playing D&D with them. Is this a good idea?”

No, and I’ll give you an example why. Let’s say you show up to your friend’s basement (just guessing), start playing Dungeons & Dragons, and like it. The overwhelming allure of cheap delivery pizza, lukewarm Mountain Dew, and a rainbow-palette of slightly stale junk foods proves more than you can resist. Suddenly, it’s D&D every Wednesday. Your character starts out first-level, advances to second, and maybe even reaches third-level within a month, but then your advancement slows down, so you add a second night of D&D each week to satiate your fictional bloodlust. Pretty soon, every session you’re multi-playing four characters (each with a miniature, which you painted) and Dungeon Mastering your own game on weekends. But still, it’s not enough. You become an experience junkie whose standing game dates become his only dates, so you take the plunge and start logging-in to World of Warcraft during your “free time” (you know, what you once called the “workday”). Before you know it, you’re reading Robert Jordan fantasy novels on the toilet, drinking five Amp energy drinks every day, playing Pokémon Pearl on your Nintendo DS with a tightened belt around your neck, and writing freelance Ledges on the side to scrape together enough bread to buy your next Monster Manual. I’ve seen it happen at least 3d8+5 times.

Long answer short: You can’t run from your demons by chasing dragons, pal.

Quitting isn’t easy, either; climbing out from those Nine Hells of Baator takes a whole lot more than Twelve Steps. Besides, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2.0 is a superior system, with fewer dice and a gentler learning curve.
