Creativitymachine - Fiona the Radiant

So, as follow-up to the last Creativitymachine, I present to you my wife's Warcaster on the gaming table. This homebrew was led in design by two (and a half) ideas: 1) She's got a great distaste of injustice - the prime time to use the phrase "...in the name of Justice" [that's a Sailor Moon reference - deal with it]; 2) Her nickname's Fiona - so how about an "evil" twin (which by math laws has to be the good one, then)?

If you need to take it, here's the break:

WM Hiatus

   I've reached a decision today - I'll be pausing WM/H for the time being. This decision is in no way caused by any state of the game itself, it's because of my state as player, and my outlook on the future progress of me as a player.
   There will be no WM related posts on this blog (by me, at least) during that time.

This hiatus is in effect starting now.
It will end February 2015 (i.e. when I own a fully painted Zerkova resculpt (AKA Alexandra Flamenkova). Then it's Zerkova World Domination Tour time!)

Boss Monster - Initial Review

  SPIEL 2014 did happen, and as of this writing, nobody was killed in an ISIS attack and neither got himself Ebola nor passed it out unto others (Suck it, Battlefoam!). During the fair, a number of impulse (or dopamine driven) purchases were done.

   One of those got me "Boss Monster" and "Boss Monster: Tools of Hero Kind" from Brotherwise Games LLC. I had first seen this game played on Bleeped Up Productions, and since I'm an 80's kid, I was fully aware during the time of the C64, Atari, early Macintosh (I had a IIfx with a 21" (non-flat!) screen), NES, Gameboy, and Super NES - which is the main source of graphic inspiration for this game (numerous references in the game reach out to more current games).

   So, along this line of thinking - Press (A) to continue, or (B) to cancel!

Creativitymachine - Supreme Kommandant Marth Fright

   In this article, I'm going to show you what rules I came up with for "myself" as a Warcaster. That one actually has a bit of a backstory - for M&tM S5, I wanted to have "Break Images" - basically still pictures a channel would show right before and after the commercials. To that end, I got the offer from Paul Villar (from Play it Painted) to draw a WM image of me, and the only guidance I gave him was "sth Iruskesque."

   The following homebrew rules mainly stem from the fact that my rendition is holding a pair of dice. But all the crunch will come after the break - so you can get out of here if that's not your cup of tea. ;)

Khador 2014, Part 10 - WTC '14 Khadoran Army Lists

... an outsider's totally unbiased and professional omniscient judgement. As if.

   So, Lamoron, great Danish Cryx player posted his review of the WTC's Cryx lists over at The Overseer, and I thought that would be sth that should be done with the Khadoran lists as well - especially since both Jamie P. and Trent D., perceived Paragons of the Khador faction, have abandoned it for the WTC, and you hear the argument that Khador, even after Butcher 3, isn't being feared.

   Keeping that in mind - I think there are too many people playing Khador for that to be a valid statement (thirty, to be precise). I'll judge the list by the following colour chart - and a number of KMIs (key model indicators) that'll reveal itself throughout the essay), and give my reasoning later.

Really Boring
Very Boring
Boring
Kinda Interesting
Interesting
Very Interesting

   That professional, objective research right there! But since I'm the scientist, I set the parameters by which the data is analysed - so let's bring it on!

For safety reasons: I'm not judging the lists to be "done well" or "done badly", I'm merely going by how much reading the lists makes me want to see it played.

Our first spell draft - the Arides Redux

Our first spell draft - the Arides Redux

Another weekend, another tournament Marth looked forward to, but had to drop out. And another tournament failure on my record score... ;)
