    Tuesday 11/13 - Ordo Game Night at WOW

    It’s my understanding that Geeks & Games, in Oregon City, has a standing “40k Night” on Monday’s. Haven’t been there myself (I’m a car-less Portlander) but heard good things. Guardian Games has a very active 40k league every Wednesday. You can try to find a pick up game there most weeks, but if they’ve got a tourney in the immediate future then they tend to go into overdrive practicing for it and friendly pick-up games become a little more scarce.

    LF: Warmaster Empire

    This might be a radical idea, but hear me out, I think he intends to use them to play Warmaster. Just a crazy theory. (Having said that, I’ve been considering buying a whole mess of 6 mm medieval historicals and using them for Saga: Age of Crusades.)

    In my personal “head canon,” this game is part of the WH40k canon.

    Your first album

    Cassettes, actually. Dad wouldn’t let me near the vinyl.

    Your first album

    Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. Bought them both at the same time, so I’m not sure which one is “first.” I had buy my own, because my dad was always irritated that I kept “borrowing” his and never putting them back.

    Adeptus Titanicus Rumors

    Well, sure. If you want to be sensible about it. Ironically, that’s pretty much how Epic got created in the first place. Big stompy robot game; then add tanks and infantry; then realize the whole mess is too complicated; rewrite the rules to work better with tanks and infantry; and then add the big stompy robots back... Maybe we’ll see a new Epic that skips that awkward middle step. History doesn’t repeat itself, but it does tend to rhyme.

    No, for the upcoming Codex: Zoats; they’re keeping it really hush-hush.

    Adeptus Titanicus Rumors

    Yes, fine. But I don’t want a stompy robot game, I want a microarmor tank game with stompy robots. So, since what I want is clearly more important than what you want, I’m going to hold my breath until I get what I want!

    ...Leman Russ and Predator tanks, Rhino and Chimaera APCs, and Imperial and Chaos infantrymen. Fixed it for you. 😁

    RIP Stan Lee

    I cannot begin to adequately sum up how important comic books have been to my life. Although I always leaned more towards other creators’ works more than Stan’s, I think Stan Lee’s greatest creation wasn’t any one character: it was the modern comic book industry itself. Stan Lee’s creativity, dynamism, and truly outstanding gift for charming the pants off of anyone he ever met allowed him to grow a small-time publisher of funny books into a titan of the industry... and then lead that industry into conquering children’s television, video games, prime time television, and film. No doubt about it, comics would not be the field it is now without smilin’ Stan “The Man” Lee. Excelsior.

    What's really fun is to use the Four Chords of Pop to play a song in the Common Meter.

    Just about everything written in iambic heptameter (fourteen syllables and seven iambic feet per meter) can easily be read in common meter: four lines which alternate between iambic tetrameter (four feet per line) and iambic trimeter (three feet ), with each foot consisting of an unstressed syllable followed by a stressed syllable; and an 8/6/8/6 syllable count. Iambic heptameter is really common in a lot of Sixties and Seventies television theme songs, common meter is common (get it) to a lot of medieval ballads, and both crop up a lot in those poetry classics you were supposed to have read in freshman English, but didn't... One line has four iambic feet. The next has only three. And then the pattern will repeat And rhyme, as you can see. Since common meter texts abound, Tune-swapping is a breeze. You'll see examples float around, Including each of these: Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a fateful trip. That started from this tropic port, aboard this tiny ship. Because I could not stop for Death He kindly stopped for me The Carriage held but just Ourselves And Immortality. There is a house in New Orleans, They call the rising sun. And it's been the ruin of many a poor girl, And God, I know I'm one. I wanna be the very best. Like no one ever was! To catch them is my real test. To train them is my cause! O beautiful for spacious skies, For amber waves of grain, For purple mountain majesties Above the fruited plain! Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, That saved a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see.
