Then I came to my senses. Why would I need a Viking shield, even a really nice one? Why wouldn't I pay off my truck and trailer faster and then retire or save the extra money? As cool as this would be, I resisted (#Iresisted) the temptation to spend money on stuff and am $400 closer to doing something more with my time off.
I will, however, promote the Kickstarter. This guy has some cool ideas for D&D 5th Edition rule variants related to combat. You should go chip in your own $50/$100 if that's your thing. Just don't tell me if you got a shield. I don't need the pressure.

**a place where people can raise funding for projects. NOT a place to invest in a company since that ISN'T what you are doing when you put money into a Kickstart campaign
*** I know, a Norman crest on a Viking shield. That's not the point though.
Edit: I didn't mention here that I did actually jump in at the $100 level cause I really want the book. Got a nice comment from the author below. So go get it. He's hit a couple targets and so is expanding the content to take advantage of the extra funding.
