Just realised I've been spamming Twitter and Facebook with my general gushy love for Chaos Reborn and not here.
Problem solved.
If you've not taken a look at this Kickstarter I heartily recommend it :) Seriously turn based multi-player wizard battles written by the guy who write XCom (the original) what's not to like?
Go check it out.

So, I've had a few thoughts about TimeWatch stuff, and one of them was the Time Nazis (because what's a game without a few Nazis) the idea runs that in a few different time lines the Nazis discovered the time travel was possible (all those people trying to kill Hitler) and at least one group managed to equip a Zeppelin with a rudimentary time machine that they now use to travel about trying to "fix" history and bring about the Reich.

Then I got reading some more and found out the Josef Mengele "drowned  while swimming" in Argentina... and then it kinda got a bit dark in my head.

But it explains WHO was in charge of the plan to clone Winston Churchill and replace him in India in the 1890's.

Anyway, random thoughts, enjoy.

Oh, I assure you, when I run a Timewatch campaign, there WILL be Time Nazis.

So having random ideas for a +TimeWatch RPG game involving, H.G.Wells, time machines, Martian invasions and intelligent dinosaurs... So I think I'll mark that one down as Pulp then.

So, this time last year I was married (technically) and living in Scotland for the twentieth year. Knowing I was going to turn 40 and wondering what I'd do for it. I was also hoping my divorce would get sorted so I could ask a wonderful lady to marry me. Plus trying to work out how we would live together after that.
I had a good job that I felt I was useful in, finally feeling like I wasn't framing it, though get pig sick fed up of php.

Tonight i'm not out partying. Because I got divorced and asked a wonderful girl if I could marry her mother and she said yes, they both did.
Then I got offered a job in London and I said yes because it would mean we could live together and the wonderful girl could see her father more often.
So twenty years after I first went to Scotland I came back to England to find I didn't dislike it so much.
I've made some new friends, and i'm enjoying my job. Even enjoying writing Java and if you'd me that last year I'd have laughed in your face.
But it's been three months I've been here, getting ready for next year. And it's going to be three more months until they can move down.

Next year I'll work harder at building up relationships, but it's been hard knowing I move again soon. I miss my friends in Scotland, in both Glasgow and Edinburgh. And hope everyone has a great time tonight.

Random partying has never really been my thing, I get stressed meeting lots of strangers. So instead i'm in bed, rambling, watching films and drinking a whisky.

It's been a year with a few surprises for me, I wonder what next year will bring?

I might even write more.

I really need to post here more. Bloody knackered today, 24 hour hackathon Thursday / Friday followed by 7 hours board gaming on Saturday has taken it's toll.
I hope everyone is having a good day.

This makes me sick. I'd love to hear that the British government is doing something. And when I do I'll ride to work on my unicorn that poops rainbows.
 
When the War on Drugs becomes a War on Banks, governments look the other way.
