This week, we will be doing 100 Word Challenge. Do your sub in only 100 words! I'm not sure if the summary counts.

I recently traveled around my homeland, Norway.

While in a fjord with tremendously high, steep mountains on all sides the tour guide told us a nice little story.

High, high up on the mountainside was a small settlement. A farm. Above it a huge rock was suspended, still attached to the mountainside by some miracle - for it looked truly ready to drop at any moment.

Back in the day, while the farm was still settled, they used to tie the kids with a rope around their waist. That was because 6 men and children had dropped to their death after one fatal misstep. The settlement was on a slippery slope, and when you lost your footing you would drop down a thousand feet to the rocky shore beneath.

Another settlement on the opposite side of the fjord was less steep. Indeed if was the most prosperous location in the fjord, and that was because you had to climb several ladders to get there. Really, really long ladders. So when the tax collector came visiting, the local famers just pulled up the ladder and the tax collector had to turn around and go back home.

For those that are into the security part of things, you should be able to establish a secure connection to the Citadel.

What does this change? Nothing really. You can currently go about your business as usual but you might notice a green lock or a lock with a yellow triangle (if using chrome) and whatever in whatever other browsers. A lock and a triangle seem to be consistent in Firefox as well. I don't have IE on my linux box to look at that.

In the forum, you will get a yellow warning when you load signatures with pictures. All those will be using http instead of https. If you want to change your signature picture links to https, please do. You will help us go full secure. (I will do it slowly, but I am in no rush!)

On the main site, there will be random graphics that occasionally pop up that break the secure connection as well. I will eventually hunt them down.

The site will default to https in most cases now. Might be pieces scattered everywhere depending on if I hard coded the links. Lots of variables.

Just in case you notice the new icons in your web browsers address bar, that is why.

If you want to let me know which webpages have the warning, please do and I will clean them up as I get time. Thanks. (reply to this or add it in the bug tracker forum)

This looks pretty neat. I am not sure if you are familiar with Geek Chic or not but they make custom made RP furniture. Pretty nice stuff as well. Check it out: http://geekchichq.com/

I want one!
Hello, I have been a big fan of this website for many years and love looking at it everyday. I have been gaming for 35 years. I have been playing a Harry Potter inspired role-playing game using the Fate system and I must say that it has been working beautifully. I built an online forum that represents the school (called Natals, located just outside New Orleans in 1991.) I thought I would post here and see if anyone else is interested in a role-playing forum where you can create a student and role-play with other students via forum posts. There is an actual weekly game that meets in person but I think creating a "living" school has also really enhanced game play and can stand on its own two feet.

If you are interested in creating a character and helping bring another Harry Potter School to life, then here are the steps to do so:

1. Go to Hiddenworldguide.com and register with your character’s name
2. If you are completely new to Acadia and the School then it would be very helpful to read the Hidden World Guide to Acadia which can be found at this link in the forum: http://hiddenworldguide.com/home/m/31719343/viewthread/23022175-hidden-world-guide-reference-book-to-acadia
3.Once you have an understanding of Acadia, Natals and the 4 houses, then make a character! Instructions to do this is the second post on this thread which can be found here: http://hiddenworldguide.com/home/m/31719343/viewthread/23290205-read-first-how-this-all-works
4.After you have a student at Natals created, you can begin your own post about what your character is doing, thinking, seeing, anything from their point of view. Just keep in mind that the year is 1991 and it is Harry Potter’s first year at Hogwarts and we are writing about the comings and going at our school, Natals. You may jump into other people’s posts and add your perspective or you may create your own post and have other people interact with your posts. Here is where your posts will be:

Looking forward to gaming with some of you and I cannot wait to stop posting here. I have so many role-playing adventures and things, I do not know where to start.

Brilliant and functional.

Why you didn't whiteboard the middle so you can draw maps on it? Could put whiteboard on one side and the flip side have a permanent grid drawn on it for those times. Basically, that pull out center is pretty awesome that gives you a lot of options and gives you the opportunity to change your mind and build something different. Hell, could even put felt on a replacement center for cards too. Probably a little taller so they would slide off the table easy when gathered.

You could add a lowered corner section with cup holders in it. :) Can also double as dice holders.

Love it, awesome gaming table that has a ton of uses! Fun idea with the projector as well. I have heard of that and seen some pictures but have never seen IRL.

Thanks for sharing it here, pretty d**n awesome.
