TaKtiX: Laurence J Sinclair

Laurence J Sinclair has been playing the Warlord CCG since the release of the game - mainly thanks to that killer Rathe art. He even stuck with it through that dark time involving Campaign Rathe art. Now he is a playtester and a member of the Warlord Story Team - guiding the armies of the Accordlands into an uncertain future.


Clearin' out the Tumblebleeds

I could have sworn that I posted here yesterday, but apparantly blogger must have eaten it. Oh well.

I'll try and post stuff more regularly to this page from now on, what with KoHIT coming up and all.


Clearin' out the Tumblebleeds

My, it has been a while since I updated this blog at all. I suppose that I really should do something about that, especially with Light & Shadow out and KoHIT approaching. But will that be worth it? Is there anyone out there actually reading this? If there is, please make yourselves known.

Friday saw a tiny four player draft of L&S take place here - this time of year means that one of the student players are in town, since the summer holidays call them home. Still, it went well enough, even if Chris and I both used Kara Wadreth as our warlord and were fighting over the available Free Kingdoms characters.

It didn't seem to be as big a problem as it could have been; L&S is nothing if it doesn't contain well above the usual % of characters for a set, and both of us rounded out our armies well enough. It was finding enough stuff to fill up the other half of the deck that was the problem, and I must say that I've never used Kara's pitching ability half as much as I did that night.

Skrim Spindlespleen and Serolia Calix were the other warlords, the first suffering from a dismal first level character, the second a lack of spells. I myself now have an abiding hatred of Loren; not once but twice did the incompetent dolt critically fail his +8 shot at Haden Rhys, in two separate games against Chris. I wouldn't exactly say that he cost me those games with those specific actions, but it's good to have a scapegoat at times.
