Building A Better Community: The Cheerleader

A couple months back I wrote about building a better game community.  I kind of touched on come different ways and things that needed to be in place to help sustain a community after you built it up.  I wanted to expand on one particular topic, one that is probably the most important and possibly the most dubious position to hold.  That is the roll of the community "Cheerleader".

Do You PanO? SeerK Talks Infinity

Greetings all.  As you know I have been pulling double duty in my gaming.  I am going hard in Firestorm Armada as always, but I have also been going hard into INfinity as of late.  I am up to two armies of a pretty good size.  I have my Panoceania and my Haqqislam.  I am doing "Vanilla" PanO along with two sectorials.  NCA, Neo-Terra Capitaline, and Military Orders.  My Haq army is actually made up of two sectorials that I can run as Vanilla.  I started with the Hassassin Bharain and just bought a Qapu Khalki or QK army.

I know I know, I have a Planetfall army for some ground combat, but the local group seems a little disinterested with Planetfall in its current form.  Spellduckwrong and Dreadbeard have been branching off into Warpath in addition to Firestorm.  I have always had mixed feeling with Mantic games so I threw in with Infinity.  The store I work at in Battle Creek actually has an ITS league going with 18 people in it.  The local scene is growing quick as well, with play groups in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Wixom and the Detroit area.

Happy Thanksgiving!

From everybody here at the Waygate, Happy Thanksgiving.  BE safe out there are you venture out to meet with your family and friends.  I am personally very thankful for how the year has been turning out.  It has turned from bad to good as it has progressed.

I also wanted to say we only have 6 spots left in the Schaumburg Prime Offensive.  Sign up today and reserve your spot in the North American Championships!

Adepticon 2016 Registration is Nigh!

The Marriott Schaumburg Renaissance Hotel 
Wow this month has flown by.  I just realized I had not posted anything for most of the month.  We have been having some technical difficulties with the Podcast website and I have been in a frenzy of running events at the store, in addition to doing some projects I have been putting off.

So we will just consider the hiatus over and get back to posting.  We will be back to recording episodes of Firebase Delta as soon as we get a new site up and get all the gremlins hammered out.  We are still diligently working on material and plotting our trip to Adepticon 2016.  Dreadbeard, Spellduckwrong and myself are getting the missions all hammered out for the Schaumburg Prime Offensive and the Schaumburg Beach Head.  We are going to try and have the primer missions posted in a couple weeks to make sure everybody has ample time to practice and plan Primer Tournaments.  Speaking of Adepticon...........
