I really want to play Numenera. So much so that I`m considering running an online game with random people.

Day and time? You should also know I don't own any Numenera books. I might be able to scrounge up some people.

Now that I've shot some more paint through my airbrush I've come to recognize how good Golden High Flow Acrylics are.

Hey Purge, I just showed this video to a potential new player but hadn't watched the video critically from the viewpoint of a new player. Now that I have I can imagine how overwhelming it would be.

How about making a bunch of videos as if you were teaching someone to play. If there was no tutorial mode and you were teaching a buddy by having him join your game as a coach so he could watch your viewpoint.

In my opinion it's easier to teach carry since their role is straightforward.

You know how you'd start with whatever role your player. You can reference the other roles but no details. Initial buying of items but no details on being 6-stacked.

Then go last hit for the laneing stage, explaining when you're being weary of ganks and why. Just a good 10 minute video.

Then one on transitioning, when to stop 100% farm.

Then one on lategame.

Then go through the process for each role. Short videos would be easier to produce and consume, would require a lot of installments which is good for you, and by focusing you don't have the problem of trying to explain everything before the creeps spawn.

I'm trying to decide if Imperial Assault is good for my group. I've heard game lengths ranging from 1 hour to 3 hours. I think I'd have an easier time selling a shorter game. Also, for me the campaign is the thing. How long does the campaign last? There's no way I can complete a 2 year campaign.

1 to 3 hours sounds about right, but expect closer to 3 than 1 for most.  And a campaign is either 10 or 12 sessions long, I don't recall exactly.

It's the old alligator-clip-on-a-bamboo-skewer trick. I've known about them for years but I've only just made a set of my own.

Inspired by another blogger's post I try a thought experiment on how I would insert character level advancements into the middle of an encounter.

Cyphers are an interesting component of Numenera but can be problematic. Lex Starwalker has a solution and I examine how integral they are to the game.

This is the first lick of paint on my Airfix 1/48 Spitfire PR.XIX. I still need to buy something resembling RAF interior green for the front flare rack and almost every other bit of the cockpit. #tgtspit

It seems that every time I sit down to update my blog my first instinct is to yabber on about how I haven't been updating my blog enough. What a waste of time. 
Another nasty habit of mine is to want to talk about blogging. It's not a blogging blog for bloggers, written by a blogger. It's a hobby blog. Less yabber: more painting, I say.
Finally is the writerly instinct to write writerly. Sure, I love to write but I don't always like to read it. That guy can be a pretentious jerk, you know.
Of course, without style things are drying. Can't I at least be entertaining. For my reader's sake I resist.

So, what's the point of this? Well, if I'm going to keep my blog clear of this it's got to go somewhere, plus I want to post something here other than automated blog updates, right.

More coming, I do apologize.

I like +Monte Cook 's Numenera but it's starting to get creepy. According to the art everything floats in the Ninth World. Do you know where else everything floats? Down in the sewers with Steven King's IT!
