WTNW Core II Layout Nearing Completion!

 Our layout artist has earned himself a permanent position here at ArmChairGeneral! What a magnificent job he's done setting this book up to be printed. Now all we have to do is update the new army lists and add some of the really wonderful artwork and we're there! I have already sent the CSA and Italian armies off to Joey and now we're just waiting for the rest of the lists to make their way back.

With the addition of the original artwork from Arsenale Shipworks and Eli Arndt this book really pops!

My personal thanks to all who really helped get this off the ground and make it what it is including the reviewers who pointing out what the book lacked.

Look for the updated print on demand version to be available before Christmas this year! As always, if you purchased this product before just email me the receipt and I'll update you for free! As a new company we did have some growing pains to work out before the final product and my personal thanks goes out to all who supported the indy efforts by purchasing the early releases.

WTNW: Conflict on Mars looks to be a really good supplement! It is in playtest stages now. If you want to be part of the playtest please email me. I am looking for honest feedback from people after they play the game a few times. All playtesters will get their names mentioned in the CoM book.

Ereaders for Gaming or “How I learned how to get from behind my Laptop and join the action!”

 OK I admit I use my laptop as a DM/GM/Keeper/Storyteller whatever all the time in games. Let’s face it, my trusty lappy360 helps me keep track of initiative, npcs, combat, notes, character sheets and allows me to check references in rules at the touch of a few buttons. I also use my laptop to podcast some sessions as well as to play music and surf the internet for names and other roleplaying goodies. Without lappy I would be back to keeping notes on a pad with pen and paper (gasp!) I absolutely love my laptop and even though I am considering additional game aids which we will get to in just a moment, I believe that my lappy360 will always sit next to me on the separate table area someone nicely marked DM only!

Ok so time to get what this article is all about – ereaders! If you have not been living under a rock or deep in the bowels of Shubnigaroth you’ve no doubt heard that ereaders are all the rage. Now there are quite a number of these little bad boys on the market among them the giant Kindle and the ereader-but-not-really-an-ereader ipad.
In case you do not already know what an ereader is it is basically a very skinny version of the Nintendo gameboy that has been expanded in size to roughly a novel or a little bigger and allows for eye-friendly reading of novels, magazines and periodicals. The concept of an ereader is that you can read a book without having to actually own it (a novel concept thank you public library) and you can have multiple books all in one nifty little device (much like a laptop or pc).

I saw this ereader at Barnes and Nobels a few months ago called the Nook and it got me to wondering if they would ever make a color version of the ereader other than the ipod? Well guys guess what? The Nookcolor has just been released! This little gizmo is really cool but it unfortunately does not have the 3g capability of nook but it does have wireless.

The ipod is really super cool and something I have considered awhile now but at the heart of myself I am really against the whole apple cult phenomenon. While I did play on it with my friend Byron to play Small World and messed around with it to get some game updates. It is kind of like paying money to Heaven’s Gate but not actually getting to ride the comet… Now if Asus came out with an ipad type I’d be all over it.

The Kindle is also really cool but when I heard they pulled all Orwellian books even after people had already purchased them it sent up a red flag that said to me “IT’S INGSOC!” and well who really likes thought control? You do not do you. I knew you were thinking that.

So, I am leaning towards the nook color. Tell me has anyone else here used an ereader for gaming purposes? What I want/need it to do is to be able to quickly scroll through pdfs during a session but also allow for some quiet down-time reading in between sessions.

The really cool capability about the nook is that it will read any pdf up to a certain file size. The tech guy did not tell me what the file size maximums are for the nook. He did say that files can be transferred to and from the nook. So yes I can copy my Pathfinder books to the nook and back and forth. Of course, I know that you probably already have the book in printed form so why not just use it right?

Weekend

 

Good weekend. Sat went to Gainesville and saw my brand new nephew Patrick (my brother and sis in law) have asked me not to share his pics yet. I will be sharing them as soon as I can. Came home and watched the rest of Sanctuary and Universe. Today dad and my buddy John came over and we got some gaming in (modern and VSF) pics on armchairgeneral1.blogspot.com if you are interested in the minis.

The Truth

Obama IS a fascist socialist Marxist in the same vein as Hitler, Mussolini, Pol Pot, Ho Chi Min, Stalin, Saddam Hussein, Ahmadinejad, Castro and Che and deserves nothing less than to be treated as a traitor to the United States Constitution! He is attacking free speech!

So what if Fox News doesn't like him.. So what? It's our GOD GIVEN RIGHT as Americans to not like the government. It's why the founding fathers wanted us to be a Republic just shy of an Anarchy. The government is always corrupt. Pigs watching over pork nothing more the whole lot of them.

Stand up and fight for the constitution which is most assuredly NOT a living document. Fight for your rights before they are gone. Fight communism here and fight against this administration. I have made my choice. Political correctness and liberalism is the path to communism. Obama is my enemy and whether or not you know it if you love freedom he is also yours.

Under the Sea...

My daughter decided it would be fun to sink the bathroom by playing in the toilet.  She's only almost 4 years old.  At any rate the little adventure of hers is going to need to be repaired first.  We're taking door, door jam, part of the counter, etc.  Sebastian, Ariel, King Triton, and many others enjoyed their stay I assure you.
