Big news.


The discovery of gravitational waves generated by the collision of two massive black holes could revolutionize our understanding of the universe.

Project Management Update!

Juggling all this, plus the blog and (more so) the YouTube Channel has of course hindered my finishing anything. But I'm hoping that putting down my various projects in priority order will help me prioritize the work.

1. Our Share of Glory is very close to being ready for a draft release and a round of pre-Alpha playtesting. There is still a lot of design work to be done but the guts of the game are there.

2. UFRPG ("Untitled Fantasy RPG") is a non-retroclone but old-school inspired game that's been in the works for a while. Currently being assessed, but it's fairly well along.

3. ULFS ("Untitled Low Fantasy Setting") has also seen some posts from me under various tenative titles. I'm assessing it for overall progress as well, but it's also on the back burner behind the fantasy RPG (which isn't neccessarily tied closely to it.)

4. USFBG ("Untitled Sci-Fi Boardgame") is a big-scale thing loosely tied into Our Share of Glory and inspired by Metagaming's Stellar Conquest and SPI's Outreach. It's in the very, very early stages and is really on the back burner until the RPG is closer to completion. I did post a preliminary map a while back.

5. UHW ("Untitled Historical Wargame") is strictly in the research stage. No actual design work has been done and none is likely to be for some time, although I've been playing around a little with layout. It's a WWII game on a well-covered subject, and that's all I'll say about it for now.

The PanzerGrenadier game... did not go well. I was an hour into playing and filming and what I was doing was simply not fun.

I'm a little pissed at myself for having hung onto this for all these years before realizing that it's simply not for me. For those who like it, enjoy.

Same conclusion here. Make the boring yellowness stop!  Part of it is geomorphic boards.  I can't sit still for geomorphic boards.  Terrain is too important to tactical considerations. Eventually, I even quit nonhistorical ASL.

This is a picture of Valentina Tereshkova and Neil Armstrong. No further commentary is required.

Somehow that title makes me think of Green Lantern.

Best movie musical number of the last 30 years, if you ask me.

Yep I tried a scenario once. Wasn't fun. Sold and traded the ones I had.

Anyone got a copy of GMT's The Battle for Normandy they're willing to trade?

One of my favorite scenes from my favorite war film. Edward Fox is awesome, and he knew Horrocks personally.

Overrated. Not a bad restauant, but a terrible _German_ restaurant. Schmidt's sells itself as such, but the best sausage in the place is the distinctly non-German Bahama Mama - which is admittedly very good. And the creampuffs are amazing. The bratwurst, however, is of vending machine quality, and there is simply no excuse for that from a place with the pedigree of Schmidt's
