Life Imitates Art

Out of respect for the awesome power of the planet we live on, I will take a brief step away from the V-Squad party to share another memory; one that is topical due to a large hurricane looming ever closer as I type these words.

Any trip across Dantooine was always perilous. From the native tribes, to the roaming flesh-eating creatures, any group of adventurers would be wise to travel light and smart.

But even the best prepared units would be powerless against the planet's elements, especially the rainstorms.

Travel may not have been literally impossible, but it was a virtual squad stopper for the sheer awe alone. The rain was thick and loud, reducing visibility to a few meters. It was impressive and - as far as could be told - a unique effect across the known galaxy.

Hurricane Irene is not an imaginary storm like those on Dantooine. So to all of the "squads" in the affected trajectories of this possible historic storm, do take care of yourselves and your families.

May the Force Be With Us All.
