    AoS events at WOW

    Cross posted from the Facebook page. Hey AoS players! There's a severe lack of weekend matched play tournaments in Portland proper. Whose interested in having regular RTTs at WoW? It would be rad to get something going. I got severe burnout but I'd be happy to help whoever can organize!

    We tried for more than a year to host warhammer events with no real traction. Our current store is basically wall to wall with magic players every night now. We do have a new Tigard location but it won't be ready for a while. We could definitely host tabletop if attendance was steady.

    El Topo came out in 1970... But I think it’s safe to safe that Jodorowsky operates in his own alternate universe that only occasionally overlaps with our own. But the 1970s was also the same time when Sam Peckinpah was at his height, not to mention guys like Roger Corman, De Palma, Casavetes, Lynch... The whole “New Hollywood” movement that critics of the time loathed. I chalk it up to the Baby Boomers coming of age. The end of the post-WWII idylls, the meat-grinders of Korea and Vietnam, stagnation in the European economy, and so forth... But mostly just 20-something film makers wanting to shock and offend their parents.

    Tolkien’s elves can grow beards, Círdan the Shipwright and Mahtan (also called Aulendur) both had beards. According to Tolkien, it was mostly seen in elves who had entered the third cycle of their lives and was uncommon amongst elves in their second-cycle (such as Mahtan) and never seen in elves in their first-cycle... and since those are the elves most commonly encountered by Men and Hobbits, most Men and Hobbits assume all elves to be always beardless. Most Men and Hobbits have never seen female Dwarves, giving rise to rumors that they don’t exist and Dwarves are born from stone, so we have to accept a certain degree of unreliability in their writings about the other races.

    As an aside, @TheBeninator after doing some mathhammer, I do see your point about not allowing the bigger daemons in 2k. I hadn't quite realized how durable things are in this game. Too much 8e 40k, I guess.

    Kingdoms of Equality-tane

    Okay, I’m hijacking the thread again, but no one’s told me to shut up yet and people seem to find it interesting. I found this excellent picture that illustrates the heraldic concept of “this is on top of that” that I was talking about earlier. When writing the description for a coat of arms, known as a blazon, heralds use a specific set of jargon, syntax, and keywords that works almost like a programming language. Just like two computers on opposite sides of the globe fed identical lines of machine code will spit out the same data, give two heralds the same blazon and you’ll get the same shield. The blazon for the below shield would be Gules a pale argent on a chief azure three mullets of the second. Which “translated” into words normal people is would be Red, a vertical line of white, on a horizontal line at the top of blue, three five-pointed stars of white. The first line in most blazons tells you the color of “the field,” this will be the main background that everything else sits on. In this case it’s red, so we begin simply with the word: “Gules...” Next, we need to know if their are any complex designs (“charges”) like lions or dragons or just simple geometric shapes (“ordinaries”) on the field. In this case, we have a vertical white band that takes up approximately 1/3 to 1/5 of the space, this is a very common design an is the ordinary known as the “pale.” (There’s a modern variation that’s 1/2 to 4/5 of the space known as the Canadian Pale. It was invented in 1964 for their flag.) So in the blazon we need to identify the shape and it’s size: “Gules, a pale argent...” This shield has two ordinaries on it, the white vertical line and the horizontal blue line that take up about 1/3 to 1/5 of the shield. This line across the top is known as a “chief” and is always along the top. A horizontal band across the middle is a “fess.” Since the chief will be going “over” the pale it is listed second in the blazon: “Gules, a pale argent, a chief azure...” This shield has three complex shapes or charges on the chief. All the various charges used in heraldry have specific names and there is a whole lot of rules on how that all works. But suffice it to say that it’s kinda like keywords. Every herald knows that “lion rampant” means a lion posed to attack and a “lion dormant” means a lion sleeping and a thousand other variations. In the case of our example shield, we’ve got the five-pointed stars that were common in English heraldry but not the heraldry on the continent that favored six-pointed stars. Well, the French nabbed the keyword “star” first so that charge is always a six-pointed star by default. So the five-pointed star came to be called a “mullet.” We add them to the blazon with just a bit editing to be certain to get them where we want. Like so: “Gules, a pale argent, on a chief azure three mullets argent.” Alternatively, when a blazon has lots of colors repeated in it, you can just refer back to one previously mentioned. “Gules, a pale argent, on a chief azure three mullets of the second.” A herald will read that “of the second” bit and then return to the start of the blazon and look for the second color mentioned. Basically, like a 20 GOTO 10 line in computer code. If it read “...of the first” the stars would be red, if it said “..of the third” they’d be blue. (Both of those are bad examples that break the rule of tincture, but you get my drift.) Thank you for coming to my TEDTalk.

I know this would make me less than welcome in Kyōto, but you are in Seattle now. We do things a bit differently here, Imōto-san. Tanaka-sama has hired me, Imōto-san. You can trust me as you would trust him. My eyes see everything, my ears hear everything, but I won't remember anything you want me to forget. That's the part of my job that Tanaka-sama trusts me to be the best at. Tanaka-sama has hired me to ensure that you can sleep easy. You're safe in my hands, Imōto-san. Nobody gets near you, and if they try, I'll remove them. I can do so as soft or as hard as you want. I'll do anything you say, as soon as you say it, until the moment I say otherwise. When the music starts, that's when you'll do exactly as I say. If I say jump, you jump. If I say run, you run. When you're life is in danger, it's my dance. Ah, here's the car, Imōto-san. Did you want to go to the Turbo-Kitty Store or Ice Cream Hut first? Hiro Gibson was born and raised within the Shiawase Corporation corporation. Indeed, he's a fourth generation company man, his great-grandfather, Hiro Kuwabatake, had been a heavy equipment mechanic for Emori Shiawase's original power plant at the very start of Shiawase Atomics. The Kuwabatake's were a working class family and because they were elves, they never became full citizens of the megacorp. But they were hardworking and loyal. Hirdo's great-grandfather worked in the machine shop, his grandfather worked in the machine shop... Then came mother. Mother scandalized the whole family by having the temerity to be born a girl and the only child her parents ever had. Worse still, when they packed her off to university in the UCAS she married a gaijin! Billy Gibson was an gaijin, true, but he was also a loyal worker for Resha Corporation (a Shiawase subsidiary in the UCAS) so he eventually gained some respect from his in-laws. Despite his handicap, everyone pretty much assumed young Hiro would be some sort of skilled laborer or maybe even a low tier executive for the company too. However, early in his childhood, routine screening of kids in the company day care found that Hiro was magically active. But, even as an one of the Awakened, Hiro showed the same dogged determination to be average that his forefathers had. His ancestors had been thoroughly "blue-collar" and in a sense, so was Hiro. He was a physical adept, but an unimpressive one: running faster, jumping higher, and hitting harder than any unaugmented human... But nothing truly outstanding in terms of magical talents or aptitudes. But that was just fine for Shiawase, they trained him on how to swing a sword, how to pull a trigger, how to scare away the paparazzi and the SINless, and how to jump in front of a bullet if needed. In his role of bodyguard, his elven metatype and half-gaijin ancestry actually became something of an asset. For reasons that baffle most Japanese, Americans and Europeans seem to find elves fashionable and exotic. Hiro was skilled as a bodyguard, charming enough to hold up his end of a conversation with protectees, and fashionable enough to blend in with a high society crowd... But not too much, least his role as a deterent be compromised. Eventually, Shiawase started assigning Hiro to "preemptive protection" missions, Hiro would be sent to assist teams made of other "special assets" and "independent contractors" when extracting executives from rival corporations or transporting secure data. After a few such missions, Hiro realized how lucrative the work could be and started pulling some freelance jobs on the side. Hiro still has many contacts and acquaintances from his days as a company man. Rei Shiawase-Hino is an executive with Shiawase's Vashon Island fashion line (and a member of the extended Shiawase family that controls the corporation from a very minor branch) who helped Hiro erase his old SIN and has hired him for a few deniable jobs; Minako Aino is an up-and-coming idol singer and Michelle Kaioh is an in demand supermodel, both were former protectees and both have relied on Hiro to quash some rumors that might have hurt their careers; Kenji Tsukino grew up in the "old neighborhood" with Hiro, their fathers and grand-fathers having worked in the shop together, but Kenji's talents lay in driving cars (like a madman) and not in fixing them, Hiro got him a job as a chauffeur to help transport high value protectees; and lastly, Andrew Hansford who calls himself "Arcade," a seedy low-life party drug pusher, pimp, and hustler who always seemed to be able to weasel his way into high society functions and the most exclusive night spots, he's recently branched out into the shadows as a go-between for Hiro and Mr. Johnson. Stoic and professional when "on the job" Hiro also a fun loving and jovial charmer when "off the clock." Though he loves to fight, he loves a good party even more. He has a "big brother" instinct that was nurtured and encouraged during his youth, which let him develop a deep connection to his protectees. Now that he runs the shadows, he tends to treat his teammates the same way. Hiro works hard and plays hard. Once he has accepted a job, he never waivers from completing it. Hiro is a consummate professional and expects the same of those he works with.

    Vader's mission isn't to prevent them from escaping. It's to make them think they just barely escaped, so they don't think too hard about it and find the tracking beacon on the ship. He's as interested in stalling for time as Kenobi is. That said, there's still a ton in there that's just stupid.

    By my count in this thread, there are 9 players coming with teams. I'd be interested in being the 10th as long as a 10 team league is the size you guys are looking for. I'd be bringing in a new Dark Elf or Dwarf team. My local club is running a league of physical Blood Bowl and this inspired me to come join you guys in the digital world (cue up Digimon theme). Hopefully it'll be a good time and we won't roll too many 1s.
