In a rare and dangerously content filled distraction from usual, here's a quick guide to the landscape around squadrons. What consoles make sense, what controllers make sense, and what's this VR business?

For Fun And Profit
This is definitely fine, and not a disaster
A one-shot set in the Deadlands Universe, using the Savage Worlds! system by Pinnacle Entertainment. It is Travis's favorite setting, and I wanted to share it. Pinnacle has made the Deadlands Reloaded handbooks free to everyone during quarantine, if anyone is interested: https://www.peginc.com/store/helpin-hands-bundle/
We're also using the newly released Foundry VVT, mostly because I wanted to try it out. Bear in mind that
1) I'm a newb at virtual table tops generally, and
2) even moreso with foundry, because my only previous experience was as a player on roll20, so don't hold that against foundry (or do, I don't own stock).

More D&D. Giant Rats? Good luck Travis.
We've been bored at home too. Instead of pretending to care about X-Wing, here's a D&D Campaign!
We used to be a Mario Tennis Aces podcast, now we're an Animal Crossing podcast.
Updated parts for streaming should be in this week, so we can start that soon™
Mostly just playing animal crossing, if we're being honest.
Krayt Cup Players,
What a difference a few hours makes. This afternoon, the Governor of North Carolina has asked that all gatherings of more than 100 people be cancelled or rescheduled. As a result we will be cancelling this weekend's Krayt Cup event, with the intention of rescheduling it when the current crisis has passed. In conjunction, we will also be cancelling Friday's Kraytest Cup! event. The relevant statement from the NC HHS website is here: https://www.outerbanksvoice.com/2020/03/12/cooper-recommends-canceling-events-of-over-100-people/. We will be issuing refunds to your original payment method within the next two days. An email, as well as Facebook and Twitter posts, will be made as soon as we settle on a new date.
Thank you for understanding.
