Also is there any news on a return of the Fashionista Gamers to the stage - either Carrion Crown or something else?

Haven't heard much about Lindsay though. Hope she's doing well!

As to the Fashionista Gamers: have you listened to the 2011 Christmas Special yet? Gilbert declares his undying surfer-dude love of a lovely young woman, Hal dons the frilly dress of Mrs Claus, and Lindsay gets a magic pew-pew lazer welded to her lower arm - shockers a-plenty!

I feel cliche saying it, but I have spent a long time on listening to RPGMP3 but never got the nerves to post anywhere. So here I am for the first time.
well anyways, I just wanted to say two things. I am glad that Lindsay is recovering well.
And it brings me great pleasure to hear that Rolemaster might be getting played. I just recently started listening to the old Rolemaster adventure (one of my favorites on the site) and it amused me so much I found a box set of the 2nd edition core books and bought them. It would just tickle me pink if more Rolemaster got on the site.
That's is all I have for my first post. It feels sort of awkward having listened to Hal and Lindsay for a year or two now and only just realize that I have never actually communicated with them.

Ill copy my blog post here, for those who haven't seen it..(its a bit long, sorry)
"So, along with approximately 7 billion other people this January, I am trying to blog more now that 2012 has arrived. I admit it, I have been a lax blogger, although I have a few genuine reasons for that, namely that I spent most of December having and then recovering from major spinal surgery (an Anterior Cervical Discectomy with Fusion and Plating in my neck, if you want to be technical). I didnt want to write much about this problem on my blog, trying to keep it just to Violet Peacock and Hat-related topics, but obviously a surgery of this kind was bound to interupt my work.
During the latter part of 2011, I started to have major issues with my neck, spreading to my arms and legs. I then started to have numbness in my left arm, then leg, and an MRI confirmed that I had 2 discs (as I understand it) pressing onto my spinal cord/nerves. I was also diagnosed with Osteo-arthritus, Scoliosis, Lordosis and Degenerative Disc Disease. Note, I NEVER do things by halves.
I was lucky to be under the care of an amazing doctor, who sent me to one of the best Neuro Surgeon in the city, if not the US. He recommended surgery to fix the issue before it worsened, and while I was still young enough to recover well. With what I do for a living, not being able to use my hands properly, or bend my neck was not an option, so I decided to go for the surgery.
Im so happy to be able say that the surgery went well, and my recovery has been nothing short of amazing. On waking from the surgery, I was already able to notice a difference and was back on my feet and discharged after just one night. Its been about 6 weeks now, since the surgery, and I am almost fully back to normal. Actually, thats a lie, I honestly havent felt this good, this strong in years. Its been utterly life changing for me. I still smile every-time I open a door with my left hand, or pick up my cup of tea."
This is the scar, if you can even notice it..
So, yeah, I am now BIONIC
We have yet to restart our gaming schedule, as Im not yet able to sit for long periods of time, but I would imagine that we will get to it soon.
Thanks for all the support and best wishes..

The reason I'm advertising it here, rather than one of the official webcomic-plugging-threads on the site, is that the writer of the series has suffered spinal injuries and gone through the same surgery that Lindsay endured. If you read the commentary below the comic strips from the last few months, you may get an impression of what the Halpins have been going through, although with a gender reversal - in the case of Blue Milk Special, it was the wife (who also illustrates the comic strip in a very endearing and clear style, I might add) that ended up shouldering the dual burden of nursing her ill husband whilst being the main breadwinner of the household.
