Few dungeon masters can make the game come to life better than John Francis. Dwarves, Mages and Barbarians jump right off of their character sheets whenever he sits down at the gaming table of frisky suburbanite parents, Linda and Brandon. John Francis’ best friends, sailor-mouthed John Alex and thoughtful jock Jason, bring roguish swagger and knightly nobility to the game. And the object of John Francis’ affection, the feisty Tara, provides all the Half Elven Double Princess backstory they could ever need.
But when Jason enlists to go to Iraq and with the relationship with Tara going nowhere, it may be time for John Francis to hang up his twenty sided dice and take a job on the other side of the country. However, John Francis is about to discover that leaving will prove tougher than the Tomb of Horrors.

Pirates of the airwaves –
What does Polka music, college basketball, a Catholic University, and 25 years of Heavy Metal have in common?
We all love a great underdog story, and the history of Seton Hall University radio station WSOU 89.5 FM flows beautifully through that very vein. Legends such as Slayer‘s Tom Araya, Killswitch Engage, Overkill‘s Bobby Blitz, Lamb of God + many others have teamed up to tell the tale of WSOU for the upcoming documentary ‘Pirates of the Airwaves: The WSOU Story.’
WSOU dates back all the way to 1948, when the station’s first broadcast hit the airwaves from Seton Hall University. The radio station has since achieved monumental honors such as being named one of Rolling Stone’s Top 5 radio stations, receiving accolades from CMJ and even winning a Peabody Award. WSOU helped launch the careers of many aspiring acts, radio personalities, and even beat out commercial radio stations in the ratings by buzz alone.
The station ran into hard times in the early 2000s, ordered to drop its hard rock format. However, WSOU has remained afloat. “Underfunded, under appreciated and at times faced with many obstacles, WSOU has carried on and tries to stay relevant in an internet age,” says ‘Pirates of the Airwaves’ director Rob Longo. “Join me as we explore the storied history of WSOU, its many successes and the challenges it has and will face.”
