Word from Polymancer Studios about their actual printed Polymancer magazine. The winner is announced! Going in for the ENnie Awards this year.

In May, the RPG Buffet did a Potato Bar for supper.

Potato Bars are easy and nutritious. One member cooks the potatoes, and everyone else contributes toppings. John, our Shadowrun 3rd ed GM, prepared them in his crockpot thusly:


* 12 potatoes, more or less
* foil for wrapping potatoes

Prick potatoes with fork and wrap each potato in foil. Fill dry crockpot with the wrapped potatoes. Cover and cook on LOW 8 to 10 hours, until potatoes are tender. Prick with a fork to check.

You can put just about anything you like on a baked potato. Below are some suggestions for toppings:

* Assorted shredded meat toppings, such as turkey, chicken, or ham
* Chili, shredded barbeque, or other meaty sauce
* Stroganoff or beef tips
* Bacon bits
* Smoked salmon
* Flaked tuna
* Broccoli, cooked
* Assorted shredded cheeses (cheddar, Monterey Jack, etc.)
* Minced garlic
* Sour cream
* Butter
* Salsa or pico de gallo
* Green onions
* Chives
* Mushrooms, sauteed
