Fantasy Warrior, Real Warrior

I'm a huge fan of Spartacus with Andy Whitfield playing the lead.  Last Spetember he passed away from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.  They are producing a documentary on his battle with cancer called Be Here Now and its being funded through Kickstarter.  It's already gone over its $200,000 goal.  I intend to put money towards it. 

I know lately there has been some negative bullshit going on again.  Something I won't indulge in.  I think we forget sometimes that gaming, while a fantastic hobby and makes life more fun, is way down the ladder of importance. 

If you are a fan, you know all about Spartacus and how fantastic that first season was.  If you're so inclined, take a look at the Kickstarter.  While its not a mega dungeon or a adventure toolkit, to me its important to get involved with something like this.  If only to remind me to do as the title of the film demands, Be Here Now.  I forget that way too often.
