Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

That 100% resolves my issue with the name. :up: <- Not a vote that counts for anything. :)

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Beowulf is very much a mythological story. It also includes dragons and monsters and such. So given that Beowulf and related poems seem to be our primary source of information on the Wulfings, I...

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

My other concerns are more subjective. But this attitude that you can correct one mistake at a time to get the unit just barely over the hump is deeply discouraging.

For now, I don't have anything...

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I know they are from human history. I did look that up. As NB said, take a name inspired by that. Or, as you say yourself, take a name that is just a translation from something in some other...

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

I just want to be clear that it’s my understanding that the Wulfings were *real.* This is not from mythology. It’s real.

Changing “Amazon” to “Ashra” is precisely the type of thing that should...

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Then change the name. The minis certainly *could* be fantasy. So make them fantasy, and stop forcing them to have a foot in both worlds.

Re: Soldiers of Valhalla - nominations and discussion

Ok. I find that mildly troubling. It’s an opportunity missed, when we could have had an actual historical unit. Instead we have one with a foot in both worlds, from a fantasy planet. That doesn’t...

Why are these historical humans wearing masks given the race of “Wulfing”?

Re: OEAO's Power Rankings

In traditional double-blind formats, Deadeye Dan deserves his D. He can be a situationally valuable piece of the puzzle in draft formats, though. Either as a low cost, high variance counterdraft, or...

Lol, thanks!

I swear CoVCon is fine if you just say it out loud and donít read it... which is what I was doing when I came up with it...[/QUOTE]
That depends on how you pronounce it, kid. ;)

Of course it is. It was a stupid name. This is much better.

Re: Letters From the Front

Thanks for sharing!

Is Tales from the Loop the one that's kind of like Stranger Things? I heard it live played on a podcast I listen to. I enjoyed it, and it definitely had a different feel from...

Scytale is an excellent designer. It's always a good idea to consider his advice carefully.

I'll preface this by saying, as I've said all along, that I like the mini and I like the theme. Or, at least, what I imagine the theme to be. I also firmly applaud the decision to keep working on a...

Re: Announcing CoVCon!

This format would address my concerns about COVID, I think. A few buddies spread at normal distances in a room is one thing; the Dealer Hall is a whole other petri dish. I'll discuss among my people.

Re: Gen Con 2021 Roll Call

So many things to think about! One factor would be my confidence in my own vaccine protection. If I feel like I'm 85% protected against a variant and maybe 10% of my fellow gamers are not vaccinated,...
