Nice intro. I look forward to seeing what you'll be writing, I liked your Smolov post, not enough to try it (at the moment) but good reading!
"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
