The shutdown of Lost Hemisphere and a general lack of things to do has inspired me to catch up our loyal one or two readers on goings on since the last post.
Going way, WAY back, I realized I had not posted any updates from Food Machine (the last tournament of `12). So, here our a few bits for your enjoyment:
So, why the long wait in between updates? Well, people gots sh*t to do, yo. For instance, earlier in the month a small group of us enjoyed a game day at Atomic Empire….
January was also Illogicon. Here was the view on the balcony leading to the GM food room:
And here was my view for the rest of the Con:
Unfortunately, our presence went mostly unnoticed at Illogicon. For those of you unfamiliar with Illogicon it’s a smaller Scifi (and in tiny subprint, Fantasy) convention that occurs in various locals throughout Raleigh each year. The standard staples of a retail room, Author panels, various social meetup groups and a gameroom were all present. We were placed in the very back of the game room, so if one was not already aware of our existence, one had to stumble upon us purely by accident. This, of course, is why there were only 2 WarmaHordes demos for the entirety of the Saturday I was present.
It didn’t help that we were in the darkest corner, either. It could be a very nifty convention to have around. The group who recreates Stormtrooper and other replica armor is neat. There’s surely a market for such a convention but I don’t think there was enough marketing or hype this time around, though.
Scarab happened on the 18th through the 21st in SC. I’ll leave it to those who were there to do any commenting.
And finally, this past Saturday was a maxed-out steamroller at Hanger 18.
Coming up for the Triangle:
February 17th is an Unexpected Allies tournament at Atomic Empire.
Spring Fever (wargaming convention) is March 8th through the 10th.
March 23rd is a steamroller at Endless Gaming.
Eleswhere in the world:
Templecon is February 1st through the 3rd.
Con-Nooga is March 1st through the 3rd.
