Welcome to the Miscellaneous page!
Here we hope to publish materials that do not fit neatly into categories used elsewhere on the blog, such as reviews or sample articles. The beauty of this page is that it gives readers an opportunity to share their creations with a wider audience of gamers. We can also accommodate color photos and graphics. So, readers, if you have some ideas, news, or reports that might appeal to a wider audience, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, you may want your article to appear in Lone Warrior. If so, make sure that your note stipulates whether you are aimed at the blog, or at Lone Warrior magazine. Thanks!
