That post is great.

I really like the idea of playing hydras (maybe even an all hydra game). Don't know how we'd do it with our current numbers though. Hopefully in the summer things will get a bit livelier.

Anyone interested in running something else while Zen game is on hiatus? I can put together another Dayless setup if people want. Or maybe a simple Open setup (matrix6 or similar)?

Moose are actually quite dangerous. They attack humans far more frequently than bears, for example (though moose are generally less likely to kill you, they can still deal a lot of damage). It's also apparently a bad idea to hit one with your car.
