Sojourn in Sudbury

Posted May 25th, 2012 at 03:04 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
I am in Sudbury.
If you donít know, itís considered Northern, even if itís only sort of Northern. All the trees are birch and evergreen and there are rocks and lakes and moose and owls everywhere. Okay so I havenít seen any owls. But I bet theyíre watching me. Because I look tasty. The economy here is Northern- mines, forestry, hunting, fishing, winter sports.

Iím here for a job fair thing- apparently there are always openings in the mines and forests. Iím not really interested in either but sometimes that doesnít matter much- especially when you are looking for a job.

I thought it would be interesting to come but all I have done is think about home. They say you donít appreciated the mountains until you live on the plains- and so I am shining on my poor, dirty, highest-unemployment-in-the-country home city. Not even the city so much, but my small cluttered house. And my kids. And my Scape.

I have, for some reason,...

ZB's Monthly Blog - May '12

Wel it has been a while since I last made an update. But between hurting my right arm and the C3V teasers...I did not find the time to post.

Well, I've been injured for two months, and I'm just starting to get strength back in my hand...so I have not played much Scape lately.

I still work on keeping things running in the C3V and add my votes to the SoV, but testing has been out of the question, because it hurts to write.

But I have planned the new Michigan Tournament:
Michigan Fanscape Summer Smash - June 9, 2012


Well that is all I got,

Well met!

This relatively small map might be useful for a tournament, but, in any event, would make an interesting "casual" environment for a game . . .


The Grass hexes, the 17 on the bottom edge of the map and the 7 closer to the center, make up the 24-hex Start Zone (one of which is on each end of the map).

I've been doing a lot of editing with Picasa 3. Besides cleaning up "normal" pictures, as above,

Who are you, really?

How old are you?

What is your occupation?
Professor of mathematics. I have a Ph.D. in mathematics. I teach mathematics and computer science, and I do mathematics research. I play Heroscape with my students weekly as a ďmath club eventĒ. I wheel my Heroscape collection, stacked on a large cart (see photo), from my office to a classroom and we set up and play.

Secrets of Vydar

Posted May 15th, 2012 at 02:34 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
I had long hoped to interview the Valkyrie General Vydar, and so it was with great excitement that I prepared for my meeting with him. It had been several years in the making- or should I say waiting, as it is notoriously difficult to get to meet with any of the old greats.

I was shown into a small anteroom and thatís when I got the first inkling that something was awry. Would Great Vydar, he of glorious giant wings, meet me in a little sitting room? There were two chairs- both the same size- that couldnít be right, could it? And between the chairs a little table with a pitcher of water and Styrofoam cups. Surely Vydar didnít drink out of Styrofoam....

My suspicions were confirmed when a small oriental gentlemen in a very crisp dark suit came in and greeted me politely. No, I would not be meeting with General Vydar today. He had been called away by unforeseen important business. But Mr. Chen had been authorized to meet with me in Vydarís absence....
