Here's what we watched today with breakfast.

This episode of the 'Between The Wars' history series by the [Time Ghost] Crew is extremely well done in regards to available facts and information about what followed WW1 in regards to the Ottomans, Turkey, Greece etc. It is longer than many of their works because it is very well done, include a fair amount of maps and photos from the period and a large explanation of the politics involved.

It's conclusions on how these events affect World Politics and how nations, ethnic groups, and policies in regards to borders and immigration and ethnic cleansing are important.

Warning : it does talk about, in a general way, about the horrors of these events and there are some disturbing photos from investigations into the actions on all sides in the conflicts involved.

The True Story of the Cthulhu and Elric Sections Removed from Deities & Demigods

I haven't played any edition or flavor of D&D in something like 27 years, but I do sometimes read up on the history of the game and what has come since I walked away from it.

The story about what happened to the original AD&D Deities & Demigods was well known in many gaming circles, even to the point where it made the first edition books a collector's item because of what they included that was removed.

Here's a piece about what really happened instead of the story that we were all told back in the day....

The city is dodging legal and financial responsibility for the result of the negligence of the public works department, the city managers and the city council to deal with our aging infrastructure again.

Unbelievable.
