Well, I’ve gone and done it, with the Wife’s blessing I’ve purchased a QwerkyWriter.

And I love it.  The action is robust, the clicky is great.  I’ve never typed on a high end mechanical keyboard before and it actually does make a difference.  I used a Microsoft ergonomic keyboard up to now.  It was fine, but, I don’t know, somehow compared to this it felt lazy.  With this I have a wrist rest and my hands are in a more “correct” position.  I don’t know if the clicks are compelling me to type faster, but for now it seems so and it’s fun.  I think the ergonomic keyboard, with it’s split keys, got me to distinguish left/right hand split for typing .   This has no number keypad, but I rarely used it anyhow.

The keyboard is Bluetooth and I purchased a Soundbot SB342 dongle for the connection to my tower.  The little USB dongle set up easily and found the keyboard right off.

It’s pricey, Oh Dear Lord it’s pricey, but damn it’s nice.

On the upper left we have a Shadowrun anthology called Drawing Destiny.  Wife has read it, I haven’t made it there yet.  Also Shadowrun related is the “prototype” preview of the new Anarchy ruleset for Shadowrun.  The premise is a rules light version of the ponderous rules of Shadowrun.  Haven’t read it cover to cover but I’m not sure about it.  While I agree Shadowrun is big, I think they might be diverging too much for my tastes.

Continuing clockwise, we have dice on top of 7th Sea rules.  The dice are Classic dice from Q-Workshop, d10s for 7th Sea and a standard poly set for D&D.  I have too many dice but it’s the Con so the dice must flow.  The 7th Sea rules are actually from a KickStarter and were waiting for me on my return to Harrisburg.  But they were for sale at the Con so I’ve included them here.  I got the “Pirate” level so I received a normal copy of the rules and the black pirate edition.  The rules are heavy on the GM winging it/  I played a session at the Con and had a great time even though it ran til midnight and there were only 2 other players.
