Angel of the Revolution

Behold... The Earth - Mark 2!

The best local pound shop turns out to have 6" globes for a quid, this is my first crude effort at the re-aligned Earth of The Struggle For Empire; it's eventually going to be a political globe, there may be a geophysical one too if I can find the time.

These pictures probably won't be in the RPG, the globe thing is mainly a check on the maps and a fun prop for game sessions.

Possibly not the result they expected...

Just had a message from PayPal telling me that I don't need to withdraw funds from my account, I can use them to buy things. Which is fairly obvious, but left me wondering why they'd sent it.

So I checked, and found my current balance was well over £100, not surprising since I've had some Forgotten Futures orders this week and have only spent a few quid.

So I transferred £100 back to my bank account, which is pretty handy because my current credit card bill includes dentistry, bike insurance, parking, and other stuff that cumulatively is a big hit on my bank balance.

Now if they hadn't sent that reminder, I probably wouldn't have remembered to check the balance any time soon. Result - but possibly not what they intended.
