The Schaumburg Prime Offensive Returns! Missions!


 


Hello all!  SeerK here once again to talk Adepticon!  We see the return of The Schaumburg Prime Offensive to Adepticon.  This time around though, A Billion Suns takes the place of Firestorm Armada.  We have a 3 round event Friday March 24th at Adepticon.  At the time of me writing this we still have spots open.  Today I am going to be posting the missions and going over the model policy.  A billion Suns is a model agnostic game, but we still need a few guidlines to make sure everyone is on the same page and to make sure we all have a good time. Lets take a look at things!

Goodbye 2022

 


Greetings all.  Its been quite a while.  Life and a lack of motivation has kept me from writing. 2022 has been quite a year.  I have started to play a few different games and a couple have gone by the wayside.  I am getting my gaming mojo back.  I have been hobbying a lot more and I have even started painting again.  The burnout I experienced doing stuff for Spartan Games and the pandemic had lasting effects that are finally going away.  I picked up A billion Suns to satisfy my need for spaceships and I have started playing 30k since the release of the new edition.  In fact we are running A Billion Suns tournament at Adeption this coming March.  I just wanted to pop in and say that I am going to make an effort to write even if nobody is reading it.  Just to talk about the hobby and games to kinda work things out for myself.


Happy New Year.  may the coming year be good.  Adeption Registration is January 8th!

Adepticon 2022 Follow Up

 


Hello all.  Adepticon 2022 has come and gone and a lot has happened. First and foremost, my bipolar ass has felt reinvigorated. Being immersed in gaming for a week has helped things immensly. I helped judge the Infinity GT at the convention and my love of Infinity has been rekindled, especially since I actually got to play. N4 is more streamlined and it plays great. I picked up a couple new games as the group also picked them up.  Godtear and Team Yankee are on the menu.  I may not play them often, but they are now in the mix with 40K and A Billion Suns.  The group may have some gamer A.D.D., but I am pretty focused on Infinity now.

That said I am proud to announce that Mitten Mayhem is going to be coming back for its second year.  The pandemic put it on hold before it could get established, but the pandemic is not killing it.  We are back and now we are affiliated with Michigans Premier wargaming convention. The MIchigan GT

Adepticon 2022


 Hello all.  Its been a while.  I have been absent and for that I apoligize.  Hell I don't know if anybody still reads the blog.  Well after some thought I decided I am going to post at least once a month.  My gaming life has not been what it use to be.  I am hoping this changes next week and I feel a little of the passion come back.  I speak of Adepticon.  After two years on hiatus, the convention has returned.  I am participating in two events this year and I am helping to judge the Infinity GT.  I am brushing up on Infinity as I have not played the new edition.  I have only read the rules.  I plan on helping out none the less.  The gaming group here in Lansing has been experimenting with a bunch of different games and it has made us lose our focus on any one game. It's kind of frustrating honestly.  Its gotten to the point I am thinking about dipping back into 40K.  I know, thats kinda a point I thought I would never reach. We will see what happens.  I am going to try and do at least one post at Adepticon and might do a YouTube video on the channel I have not used in years.  If you are reading this I appreciate it.  I am going to get the passion back.  Life and past circumstances have left me burned out and honestly longing for days past.  Well thats all for now.  If you are reading this and are going to Adepticon, say hi if you see me. until next time.....


Remember Dramos!

Blood runs, anger rises, death wakes, war calls !!!

Dystopian Wars 3.0 Unboxing


Greetings all! SeerK here once again.  Today we are going to be talking about the new edition of Dystopian Wars. I recently picked up the 2 player starter set called the Hunt For Prometheus.  This box contains 2 fleets.  A Commonwealth fleet and an Enlightened fleet.  For the old school Dystopian Wars players this would be a Russian and Covenant of Antartica fleets. As some of you may know I am a Prussian Player, or as they are now known, the Imperium.  I do like the Enlightened though. that was my second fleet when I was first into Dystopian wars 2.0.  This will be an unboxing post, which I generally do not do, but I am still reading the rules and have yet to get a game in to comment on the rules.  From what I have read so far, the rules seem pretty solid and are more streamlined than the 2.0 rules.  Lets dive into the box and see whats what.

Trial of Possesion: Ballad of The Storm Crow

 


Hello all! I have been playing Battletech as of late, mostly because its easy to set up games with myself and another person.  I have been playing through the new Tukkayyid campaign with my buddy Schoop and we are going to be playing a deciding game soon.  George and I recently played a rather long and very exciting game that was using a modified version of the Trial of Possession  scenario in the new Clan Invasion boxed set.  We chose our own forces rather than the ones presented in the booklet and the battle in this instance was between Georges Clan Diamond Shark and my Kappa Galaxy Clan Jade Falcon forces.  This was no mere battle for a ficticious technology or planet.  This game was for possession of a galss Storm Trooper decanter that was up for grabs due to a friends spring cleaning.  I will get into the game a little bit, but I wanted to talk about the 2 stars of the show, at least on my side.  In fact I am going to concentrate on one particular mech that I have used in 3 games now and it has performed excellently every time.  The Ryokan or as it is known in the Clans, the Stormcrow.

Curve Balls

 


Hi all.  Well things went off the rails quick, at least in regard to the blog.  We are still recording the podcast though so thats good.  I started a new job in October and it has me beat when I get home every day. The big downer that has kept me from writing is the loss of my father.  He passed away from complications due to covid a few days after I started my new job.  Things have been pretty rough after that.  2020 kept throwing curve balls at us.  Shortly after Dad passed away my wife and I had a covid scare after being exposed at a restaurant.  I know what you are saying.  It was dumb to go out.  It was and we are not anymore despite things opening back up here in Michigan.  I go to work, come home exhausted and basically thats it.  I have been able to get a few games of Battletech in though with my best friend Schoop.  We are playing the Tukayyid campaign.  The new year came and we had some hope things would be better.  Things are still not optimal, but I think things are starting to perhaps turn around.
