Several artifacts, all of which possess some power or another. All of them, also, pulled from the corner net pocket of a billiards table. Each of them with the potential to lead to incredible adventures. Only, part of the deal, part of the rules, something must be left in exchange. An old pocket knife, which links to 27 worlds, deposited in the pocket next to the red balls.

And of course, the Bros go with me.

A Day

Accomplished things at work. I would suppose this to be good news, but it really is only, like, daily news.

Good news: another ot-tar coming this direction. Wait, it's an ot-tar. Might not be good news.

Other good news arrived today as well, but can't share that quite yet. Nya nya. Well, other than that good news arrived.

This evening is the Dept./Office Holiday party. Herself is coming in to town to join me as well.

This concludes the Daily Report.
