A Rose in the Distance

Posted March 4th, 2021 at 07:18 PM by flameslayer93
Pain. Physical. Emotional.
Felt it all, in the distant past.
The present day.
And again, now the past.
You're a rose in the distance now.
Blessing others in your embrace.
But you had to go.
To get better. I wanted you better.
You fought with the violets in the distance.
You fought with the tulips in the distance.
You're a rose in the distance now.
Every year got harder.
Your petals wilted. Your stem cracking.
I saw the petals fall. Your stem cracking.
I was there. But not the end.
The tulips and the violets were there this time.
They got in the way. Formed a barrier.
I felt them devils.
Though I know they too are flowers.
You became more distanced.
Plagued rainfall came.
Swept you into the distance. You rose.
And now you're a rose in the far distance.
I cannot see you. Only remember you.

Rest in peace, Rose Quinn....

Single Seishin Samurai vs. Horned Skull Q10

Posted March 3rd, 2021 at 06:46 PM by Astroking112
With the recent resurfacing of the Skeletal Samurai sculpt, my passion for the Samurai has seen a resurgence. Now that availability is better, it's even possible to do a single-spawning version of them as had been suggested ~15 months ago, making them a feasible design once more.

HIGH WAYS OR THE HIGHWAY by 1Mmirg
395 Points
Glyphs: Dagmar and Wannok
Astro: Seishin Samurai x6, Tagawa Samurai Archers x3, Raelin
Captain Stupendous: Horned Skull Brutes x3, Major Q10, Marcu Esenwein

SURVIVING UNITS:
Raelin (4 wounds), 3x TSA, 2x Seishin (one was unplaced)
~120 Points Left

GAME SUMMARY:
Capt. S and I both beelined for Wannok, mostly ignoring the left side of the map (he had Marcu, but my best Wannok sponge was Raelin, so I didn't want to leave it uncontested and only had 10 figures on the board to start with, which made spreading out infeasible). I led with TSA of course, and he moved out with...

FFC #68 - The coming of novels

Posted February 25th, 2021 at 09:11 PM by The Grim Reaper's Friend
TGRF's Fan Fiction Chronicles - Entry #68

While I've been saying for a few years that I'm nearly ready to write novels, and that I'm working on the last few things I need to fix in my fan fiction, the reality is that I keep writing fan fiction, and my novels remain in the unformed halls of my imagination.

This might lead the inquisitive among you to wonder if, in fact, I will ever stop writing fan fiction, and if I will ever write novels.

The answers to those two questions are 'I don't know,' and, 'yes, I plan to.' While writing fan fiction and novels at the same time is - regrettably - unlikely, I'm not specifically planning on stopping one just because I start the other. But that's far in the future. What I really wanted to mention in this FFC is WHY I am continuing to write fan fiction instead of novels.

I've said before that there are 'things' I want to improve/fix in my writing style before I write novels, and that fan...

Adventurescape continues

Hard to believe this project is three years old.

Lately I've been updating, upgrading, and making spawn bags more uniform. There's approximately 25 levels of opponents near 150 per level.

There are a dozen or so damage types and before the wound markers were simply grouped with the units that dealt them. Now they have powers that specially say what to do with those markers.

Some squad figures have been shifted to heroes - and vice versa. Markers now make this more clear also. For the first three levels at least. I've been saving on my end, but a playable update will come more likely at the end and not between.

Glyphs can be dropped and markers can't

There are temporary and permanent Treasure Glyphs, Quest Treasure Glyphs, Power Glyphs, Special Power Glyphs - Experience, Escalation, and Challenges also now have Glyph forms.

Units can now be encountered with Glyphs to spicen up their arrival.

Scaper of the Month - January 2021

Posted February 21st, 2021 at 11:07 PM by HS Codex

’Scaper of the Month
Father Of Julian
Author: Ninja Status

PROFILE

Who are you really?

Demetrius Fuqua.

How old are you?

56.

What is your occupation?

Montgomery County Program Specialist.

What’s the story behind your username?

We were heading to our first official tournament. I tried to come up with a cool username but wasn’t successful. Upon check-in, my son told the tournament director “Hi. My name is Julian.” When he asked me my name, I said proudly “I am father of Julian!” The funny thing is Julian has changed his Scaper name twice since then. But I’ll always be known as Father Of Julian (FOJ).

What are other games you enjoy and why?

Dungeons & Dragons, chess, backgammon, Monopoly, and Madden. I enjoy these
