Jolting The Status Quo

Reconstructing the Campaign Mastery Blog

“We can make it better than it was before – better, stronger, faster.” (Well, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad) Well, it’s done. Almost 6½ hours of effort. That’s what it took to completely remove and replace every category and tag, and then reassign them according to a new and comprehensive scheme of organisation that […]
