Show notes:

  1. Sponsorship : None
  2. Listener E-mail : Sasjhwa and Zach
  3. News/Rumors : Dave Arneson Dies, GW Price Increase, GW GT's Cancelled, Blood Bowl PC Game Open Beta, Forgeworld Open Day, New Miniatures (From Independant Companies), Contests!
  4. Feature : Gamer Etiquette
So I start out with some after thoughts on Adepticon and how cool it was to go and play there; I shall certainly be returning in the future. Lots of news/rumors; Dave Arneson co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons passed away on April 7th, GW canceled the US GT's and they're raising prices again. The Blood Bowl PC game is taking applications for open beta testing. Forgeworld hosted an open day and showed off some new stuff. A number of independent miniature companies are releasing some new and very cool mini's. Contests for a couple of novels and the Avatar of War Chaos Dwarf model. All the links mentioned in the show are below.

Discussion of some of the simpler Gamer Etiquette is the feature of the show and I simply go over some of the things encountered during games/tournaments of Warhamer. Covering issues from "gamer funk" and WYSIWYG to Clipping and Overshooting. I discuss what I feel is right and wrong at the gaming table. Rules of etiquette are simple; but there are some people who do not know them.

So I have returned from Adepticon. There is only so much I can say; but the general statement is awestruck. Upon walking into the main hall I was greeted by the 40k Gladiator tournament. Forgeworld as far as the eye could see. Titatns, Flyers, Demons, Bugs... All enormous and beautiful! More money than I'd ever be able to force myself to spend on a single model; but awfully damned cool to look at.

As far as the Fantasy Championships go I was mostly fail. Partly because of the lack of experience running the Dwarf's and partly bad dice. Win against Empire, Draw against Wood Elfs and a Loss against both High Elfs and Ogre Kindgoms. Loss by a very slim margin against the Ogre Kingdoms. If he hadn't rallied a unit on his last turn it would've been a draw. Very fun tournament and pretty well run too. There wasn't a lot of wait time to get things moving and lot's of cool stuff. All told I ended up in 68th out of 119 players. Middle of the packish.

I have pics that I haven't posted yet and I'll get to when I record the next Podcast which should be soon.

Adepti - Waaagh!

Preparing my bags for the drive north to Lombard, Illinois tomorrow afternoon. I shall be at Adepticon tomorrow. I will take pictures, and hopefully some video that I'm not really sure how to get on the Podcast feed. I'll do my best at procuring interviews and such as well. Wish me luck in the Fantasy Championships! See you in a week or so.
