Founded on 12 September 2009 CE, Small Golden Sceptre is the creation of one Douglas G. Henke. This site has no charter, no mission and no purpose save perhaps being a loosely-organized collection of things the contributors find momentarily interesting.

The expectation is that these things will be, in no particular order: Dragons, gadgets and compugeekery, renaissance fairs, the life of the citizen-engineer, games (of the tabletop, pen-and-paper RPG and/or video varieties), FOSS, and matters literary, both in general and specifically within the genre-ghetto of fantasy literature. Only time will tell if this expectation is realistic.

If you find errors in fact, form or presentation -- or if you merely wish to offer another point of view -- please reply by comment, or send email to the site admin.
