VERSE 1
IS HE THAT RICH?
MAYBE HE'S POOR?
'TIL HE REVEALS HIS RETURNS
WHO CAN BE SURE?
WHO NEEDS THIS CLOWN?

VERSE 2
SOMETHING'S AMISS
I DON'T APPROVE
IF HE WERE RUNNING THE FREE WORLD,
WHERE WOULD WE MOVE?
NAME ME A TOWN?
JUST WHO IS THIS CLOWN?

BRIDGE
AND WHEN WE THOUGHT WE'D HEARD IT ALL
HUFFING AND PUFFING ABOUT HIS BIG FANTASY WALL
MAKING HIS ENTRANCE ON STAGE...
HE JUST SHOOTS FROM THE HIP
HE'S FULL OF BULL
HE'S LOST HIS GRIP!

["Since Putin likes me, I like him! Sounds like a 4-year old!"]

VERSE 3
AND IF BY CHANCE
HE GETS TO HEAV'N
EVEN UP THERE HE'LL DECLARE...
CHAPTER ELEV'N!
WHO'D HIRE THIS CLOWN?
THIS SAD VULGAR CLOWN...
"YOU'RE FIRED" YOU CLOWN!

BRIDGE 2
HILLARY'S KIND...
SMART THAT IS CLEAR
WHILE SHE IS GIVING US HOPE...TRUMP IS SELLING...

The Sunken Temple - A Faceless Ones! Adventure.




The Map. A large relatively open space, flooded with Swamp Water.

Glyph of Wannok (Wound): At the end of every round, roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 1, the figure on the Glyph receives one wound. If you roll a 2 or higher, you may choose an opponent who must give one wound to any figure he or she controls on the battlefield.

Expanding Choice in the 16 Card/Choice Draft

Posted August 17th, 2016 at 03:41 PM by kolakoski

Well met!

In my
Codex Article, I laid out the fundamentals of the 16 Card/Choice Draft. The most recent, and fairly successful example of one is The Faceless Ones! (a Battle Report featuring this scenario can be found here). The point range (140-300) of the Draft is fairly narrow (a good thing), yet contains a huge number of great Cards. The name of the scenario lends itself to using it as an evolutionary template for a future series of Faceless Ones! games, in that it implies that there are no fixed characters. The first of these will be that visualized in The Heroscape Traveller, The Sunken Temple - A Faceless Ones! Adventure. The Map will be a bit different, and feature Swamp Water (rather than Water), and there will be a couple of substitute units from my recently acquired kollection. Over time, different maps and substitutions will change the context, but the cast (barring additional purchases) will remain the same.

kolakoski's Impressionistic Battle Report

Posted August 12th, 2016 at 12:44 PM by kolakoski

Well met, Gang fans!

I love it when a plan comes together . . .

The Gang of Four met yesterday (8/10/16), and twice played
The Faceless Ones! - Draft Version. A good time was had by all, and thanks once again to chas for once again making his Game Palace a site of joy for everyone (and recording the Draft and Armies lists below).

Before we could begin, the contretemps concerning how to play Malekith and Chameleon within Sherman's Team Rules for this scenario was settled. Sherman convinced me, and the rest of the Gang, that this was possible without any ambiguities. We also decided to play within our usual 10 Round time limit. That being done, we continued the first Snake Draft. After we completed the Draft (for each game), teammates were determined randomly. [Taeblewalker took a few pics with his (late model) phone. You'll be able to actually see something. I'll add them when they hit the Gallery.]

Well met!

Sunset on the Cliffs Hotel/Resort


At the end of November, we will be taking our annual vacation in Negril, Jamaica. This year, we will be staying (for about four weeks) at the same hotel at which a couple of friends have been staying (their annual stay being for around three months).



Irvin and Addena Sumter-Freitag


Normally, when we're not swimming, walking, running, going out to eat, partying, bar-hopping, etc., we play Jamaican Dominoes. [Actually, we play Dominoes in the midst of many of these activities, as well.]

I've often contemplated taking some Heroscape with me, but thought it would require
