[quote]A new update for the Golem Arcana app is available now in the iTunes, Google Play, and will be coming soon to Amazon. The update includes new features including Save game and Scenario Builder.
Scenario Builder allows you to make custom Scenarios using any of the tiles they own. In addition to creating a custom map, you will be able to place deployment zones, control zones and choose victory conditions. Victory conditions range from death match to king of the hill to a combination of the two.
The same game feature will allow players to save a game that is in progress and return to it at a later time. No longer will you have to worry about not having enough time to finish your epic Golem Arcana game.
The layout of the in app army builder has been updated to allow players to browse Golems by Arcanum. In addition the app will filter the Golems you own to the top of the list to make army building easier.
New Digital Blood Knights and Ancient One:
There is now an in app store where you will be able to find new Blood Knights and Ancient Ones for sale. Blood Knights are powerful warriors who have both a passive ability and active. New Knights and Ancients ones will be added to store over time for you to acquire for your armies.
Beta of Emissary event system:
The update includes the beta version of several tools that are designed to help Emissary host organized play events.
We'll be doing demos and free play with anyone looking to play a match.
Had quickly built a couple 500 point armies to test out. Basically the Jagara Colossus vs Black Widows. Quickly discovered the Black Widows are ridiculously ill suited to taking on the Jagara. Sure they can drag a match out by hiding in Medium Cover, but they can barely scratch the Colossus.
There was little they could do as the Jagara plodded around the map destroying their cover and obliterating anyone left without cover.
They're just too light and low on damage. They could be useful in a larger force, but didn't have the power they needed on their own.
Still, I enjoyed seeing the Colossus in action. That is one seriously heavy miniature. Very, very solid.
Come by this Sunday and check out a Demo or bring an Army down for some Free Play matches.

There was a lot of clumsy research into Twitter & FaceBook identities today with a lot of mistakes being made.
People in general ought to be more careful about jumping to conclusions, but journalists in particular have an ethical obligation to make clear what is verified & what is not.
After the shooting, I followed the trail of many on Twitter to an account that was written by a person of the same name that had been broadcast on TV news as that of the shooter. It was eerie reading and I said just that. I did not use the name of the person or the name of the account because I knew better: these facts could change. But then I also foolishly did not include a conditional statement in my tweet: I did not say "if this is the account of the killer, then..." Or I did not say this was the "alleged" or "reputed" account of the person named as the killer. These are basic, basic journalistic skills drilled until they are reflexes and I would use them in any story for print. I didn't use them online. That was wrong. We don't learn these things as journalists just to cover ourselves or to sound like journalists. We learn them because the key skill of the journalist is to say what we do not know and to make that clear. That is the essence of credibility.
I immediately tweeted that I should have added the conditional statement. I then erased the single tweet, which I hate doing because one should not try to eliminate the record. But on Twitter, there is no way to amend or correct a tweet -- a fundamental structural problem, I think, but I'm not shifting blame to Twitter -- and so it could continue to be retweeted and passed around.
As you know by now, it soon was reported that the original name was wrong. A person by that name was being questioned and his brother was identified in the press as the killer. Though as I write this, the police have still not verified either. So caveats still apply. And I am not using the names still.
Also, as this proceeded, the Twitter account associated with the first name got new tweets. That is apparent evidence that it was the wrong account. But even that is not foolproof as one can send delayed tweets. So nothing is certain. That is the important lesson.
Bob Garfield wanted me to shrug and say oops -- such is news. I wouldn't do that. Yes, this is news and we've all -- not just journalists but also everyone who ever watches a breaking story on TV and now on the net -- learned that facts change. But it was wrong. Bob also wanted me to blame haste. But I wouldn't do that, either, for by that argument, one would need to wait hours, days, weeks, or even longer before reporting any facts and clearly that's not going to happen.
No, we always need to be as diligent as possible about verifying facts -- and listening to TV news, I've learned, is not sufficient. That includes now not just journalists but those who spread what they hear from journalists via Twitter, Facebook, et al. We need to be careful about saying what we don't know or how we know what we're saying. Those attributions and caveats are important. I left them out of my tweet. That was wrong, especially for me. I am sharing this here both to share the lesson. I'm sorry.
