Well, I made it out of Rochelle, unfortunately without posting parts of The Larch. I'm going to do it today.
Story idea: I have an Alien Generator that I built (if I can figure it out, I'll post an example). It might be really good for designing races for a fantasy story. The story would be filled with all sorts of other races and modern machinery, except they're run by magic. Wizards are like Geek Squad and have to go around fixing things or creating new magical items. The crux is, everything is run my nanobots and the races were designed by genetic engineers.
