Henry’s Books

Note on the word Energion

The name Energion originally was the name of a role playing game system I designed with some help from my friends. Though I am no longer making use of the system, I have begun to make the old manuals and some related software available on the internet. Look at the Energion Role-Playing Game System.

Threads from Henry’s Web

  • Old Testament Violence Discussion
    Allan R. Bevere is hosting a response from L. Daniel Hawk to Adam Hamilton’s three part series on the violence of God in the Old Testament. It’s a topic I find fascinating.
