Odd Numbered Point Costs and "Wasting Points"?

Posted November 3rd, 2013 at 11:27 AM by kolakoski
Well met!

Suppose you are building a 550 point Roman army featuring the 145 point Azurite Warlord, or a
550 point Knights of Weston army featuring the 105 point Sir Gilbert, would you be comfortable fielding 545 points, and, if not, how much trouble would you go to to avoid "wasting points?"

How were those odd numbered point costs for the various units arrived at in the first place? In the Book of Van Nessing, there is an interesting discussion of how his price was determined starting on page 3 - basically saying that his outsider, conflicted status was reflected in his odd numbered cost, making it more difficult for him to fit in to his expected niche builds. graygnarl saysthe new Azurite Warlord "
was always tested at point values that ended in 5, I'm pretty sure the reason was to make him pair well with Armocs x 3, and give less incentive to play him with Romans." From KCU Master, in the Book of Sir Gilbert, addressing...

Wonderful Car Accident

Posted November 1st, 2013 at 10:45 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
I never thought it would happen to me. Iím not sure why I thought that. I guess I consider myself an aware driver, one that anticipates others and doesnít hesitate to take action. But you canít see everything that comes at you, can you?

Iíd driven my eldest son to school in the morning. He often eats breakfast in the car with a plastic bowl and spoon. Then he puts them in my youngest sonís car seat Ė to be collected later.

Around 2pm I was driving, everything relaxed and normal. I began to drive through a green light when another car ran their red light at full speed. They struck my car at the rear passenger door. I remember hearing a loud metal crushing sound and I had the sensation that the car was flying. The car began to spin and I had the one complete thought that came to me during the accident. I thought ďIím spinningĒ. Vaguely I remember hoping that I did not get seriously injured. The car stopped spinning and went up on two wheels, like...

Well met!

Reunited and it feels so good
Reunited 'cause we understood
There's one perfect fit

We both are so excited
'Cause we're reunited, hey, hey

On Wednesday, 11/6/13, it will be another Roman Holiday for me, as I will be spending the day at chas' Game Palace with the rest of the Gang of Four to play
THE HILLS ARE ALIVE! A Halloween Heroscape Scenario. Naturally, I'll be fielding a Roman army. The release of the new C3V Exclusive [VC?] Azure Warlord, and my imminent acquisition of same [Thanks, again, nyys; please rush that out to me ASAP!] (hopefully before the 11th ), have got me all hot & bothered about them again [Sorry, Knights (most recently acquired - again, thanks, nyys ).

how my life was ruined by minecraft

Posted October 22nd, 2013 at 10:31 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus

I used to have three sons. We used to play games together. And then something happened. They discovered something called minecraft. Or I should say they became part of the mine craft cult.

It looks friendly enough at first glance. An endless world, full of heights and water and trees and other things that scapers love. And even better you can alter the landscape, build a house, dig a mine, cut down trees, like a real live scape world. And at night the monster come for you. What could be better?

My boys began to build houses and then secret houses and then they started playing in the same world and attacking each other. They built portals, tamed horses, made cookies and went fishing. All fine. Innocent. Or was it?

I received a rude awakening at my six year olds meet the teacher evening. In his class all the students had drawn cute pictures of their families. His, however, featured a bunch of people built out of cubes.
