I want to take a moment to endorse a really cool endeavor. Rob Waibel, a retired Army veteran and long-timed RPG designer, has created a card-based role-playing game specifically designed to be small and portable. This is very handy for soldiers, who may want to play a good RPG but can't afford the weight and space of the plethora of books required for many RPGs.
Rob is using Kickstarter to fund the initial printing of the game, called Compact Heroes. Not only is the game perfect for anyone that needs to be able to pack up their stuff and move easily (I'm looking at you, college students), but for every copy sold, Rob will donate $1 to a Veteran's Charity.
I encourage you to support Rob in his new game design. It's fun, portable, and a unique take on role-playing games. And it happens to support those who put their lives on the line to defend us and our country.
