Les Chimériades

by soltakss on October 31st, 2011 at 14:18
Just at Marseilles airport, waiting for my long flight home after a very pleasant few days at Chimériades.

I flew in on Friday morning, having set off at 2300 Thursday night to find that my mobile phone had no roaming set up - Thanks Virgin! Eventually I got my lift sorted out and got to Andrew's house where we looked at figures and I met Steve, the modeller. We talked for a while, took a last minute look at the rules, prepared a game board for the con and had a lovely meal. Eventually,

Gloranthan Miniature Skirmish Playtest

by soltakss on October 13th, 2011 at 12:07
I spent yesterday looking at Mad Knight’s new range of Gloranthan figures and playtesting a set of Skirmish Rules to go with them. They are very impressive figures, harking back to the best of the Citadel figures from RuneQuest’s hey-day.

Merrie England is, after a host of rewrites and additions, almost ready to be published. I remember why I prefer to write things for a website rather than for other people - it's a lot, lot easier. Still, I have ideas for a couple of follow-ups for Merrie England and should have them

So Much to Do, So Little Time ...

by soltakss on November 29th, 2008 at 22:24
Hiya All

I'm looking at what I want to do RPG-wise and I know I haven't time to do anywhere near as much as I'd like.

Close to home, I have a RQ Campaign set in Third Age Pavis/Prax that is in danger of stalling unless I can find something to inspire me.

I am working on an article for the Birchbark Chronicles for Mythic Russia that I haven't looked at for a couple of months.

A long-term project is the mapping of Prax/The Holy Country/Dagori
