# of players- teams of 2, no limit to teams.
Starting zones-14 hex

Rules:Each team chooses on unique Hero, 100 points or greater and designates them as the titan. The titans point total is deducted from the 1000 points, and the remainder split evenly between the two teams. There may only be 1 copy of each unique hero/squad per team.

During play a player may place order markers on the titan in order to take a turn with it. The titan is considered a friendly figure for all purposes. If your army is destroyed you may no longer place OM's on the titan, and are considered out of the match.

If at any time the Titan has been destroyed, or is the only remaining figure on your team, you lose.

The Supernatural

Posted November 18th, 2008 at 01:56 PM by Roland
I have always been a believer in the Supernatural, not anything outrageous like werewolves or vampires but in the spirits of the dead mostly. I wholly believe in ghosts, both bad and good, and the things that they can do on a psychological level. Bad dreams, hallucinations, deranged periods, all could be caused by something unseen and unfelt. How many of you also believe? How many don't? Why or why not?

NaNo WriMo

National novel writing month is just around the corner, and as part of my newest moonlighting project I have been asked to write a novel for a video game universe concept that is currently in development. Basically this company wants to make a line of games all centered around this core plot, and after giving me a very, very basic set of guidelines has allowed me almost complete freedom over their potential universe.

I have been doing some quick writes, working on characters, sub plots, and doing my research (Lots and lots of historical references needed. Who knew the Oreo was created in 1912?) all the while working alongside the programmers and conceptual artists to help steer everything in the proper direction.

I have done Nanowrimo for the past two years and never successfully completed a novel, but this year I am feeling really good about it.

Becoming Prolific

Posted October 6th, 2008 at 06:09 PM by Roland
Well, it seems I have begun to use this blog more and more in my spare time around here so what is Roland up to now?

Saturday was a harsh day for me, I ended hanging out with some friends, not really having fun, going home and sleeping. Sunday I met with a new client/boss, I have been hired as a freelance writer for a budding game developer which is an awesome leap for me. I am not being paid as of yet, but if I do well enough, and if the developer does well enough I will have a fun job, and be well off for quite some time.

So right now I am currently creating storylines, histories, worlds, races, societies, and also helping to flesh out some current game ideas.

Things are a little hard, sadness hits me at odd times, and memories always bring stinging tears but in the end, when it all comes down to it we are all going to be alright.

Finally another change in pace, today at work was crazy! I work in construction as a Junior Project Manager, and we were supposed to pour a mezzanine floor today, but it was cancelled due to a failed inspection. So we fixed it, and started to get the pour ready, and discovered the real reason was the MEP subcontractor and not gotten his drawings approved. So we had to wait, and wait, and as the clock ticked we grew more and more worried, we were going to lose a few thousand dollars if we didn't pour. Ten minutes before the deadline we were given the go ahead, before that I was cleaning out beam soffits, making sure we passed inspection and making everyone all warm and fuzzy while helping to schedule this pour.

So basically what I am getting to, is I worked, I worked hard, and I finally feel like I earned my paycheck, which at the end of the day is all that matters.

On top of that Starbucks is selling their Pumpkin Spice Lattes again, which are my one true weakness,...
