My former Flash menus are now strictly image-driven.
I’ve discovered how to make “floating” images where text wraps around the image. Cool.

Also, how to eliminate the extra spacing between one paragraph and the next.
All of these techniques are used in The Fool’s Errand Illustrated Story.
I’ve added new content to all of the menu categories.
On the Home page, Updates (this page) and FAQ.
In Sea Jay, links to web articles about this fool and his games.
In The Fool’s Errand, MS-DOS Screens.
In The Fool and his Money, Home Page, Take the Tour, and Parker Tarot Deck.
In Masquerade, Take the Tour.
In Craftpuppet, Updates.
