Very nice, I like how adventure seeds and scene ideas are smoothly condensed in this format.

I'm heading to Phobetor, laser rifle in hand, to hunt down a new dice bag.

Oddly, I too am headed to Phobetor, but with a dice bag in hand and in search of a new laser rifle.

Very nice! I'll have a group of PCs headed to Boreas on Friday - unless things get really BAD on the way there!

Hopefully only bad in an enjoyable way!
