Roleplaying Masters Degree

Wouldn’t it be awesome if there was a masters or diploma program for roleplaying games?

Of course there is no such thing, however, I think I may have found the closest thing…

Malifaux 2e – Guild, Claw and Fang

2 posts in a day? I must be feeling better!

So myself and my girlfriend were out at a somewhat local gaming store (a couple of cities over). We wandered around there for a bit and glossed over the various products that the store in our town didn’t carry. All in all, there was a lot of overlap. One thing did catch my eye though – Malifaux.

Worshipping Nurgle and Battlescribe Planetfall Updates.

Well, as you may have guessed from the title of this post – its been one brutal week.

A friend at my Jiu-Jitsu class was kind enough to introduce me to the flu of a lifetime. I was sick with various projectiles over the last 3 days from this ‘gift’. I’ll spare the grisly details, but suffice it to say – I would not wish this upon my worst enemy.

On to the gaming side of things!

Game Agreements And Why They Are Terrible For The Game.

First off – a quick definition of what a game agreement is, or at least a definition no-one should have an issue with.

You choose a points level to play, or pick a mission type to play, etc… Whatever these agreements are, they are built into the game’s design. Points are clearly needed to balance many games. If you are able to play 1000 points of your chosen game against your friend who has 200 points, clearly its not going to be a fun experience for someone.

The Fall Of the Game Company

Happy New Year to all!

 

Bit late with that – but better late than never!

I’ve been watching Games Workshop’s flailing stock numbers over the last year. Ever since the ‘Great Fall’ in the beginning of 2014, I’ve looked almost daily. I find the whole thing to be a new fascination of mine. I never followed stock markets before this.
