Objectively Confidential

datetime March 18, 2015 4:21 PM

Corvus Belli released the new ITS 2015 mission pack last week, and it mandates the use of a “Classified Objective Deck” to randomly assign secret mission objectives to each player.

Which is awesome, except they haven’t actually released the deck. >_<

But, whatever. We know pretty much what it will look like and exactly what will be in it, so in anticipation of my store’s ITS2015 event this weekend, I spent a few hours knocking one together.

BEHOLD!

A Colourful Soul

Apparently this was a colouring weekend.

This little lady is a tattoo-loving gnome played by someone in my Pathfinder group. I really enjoyed trying to match my drawing to his mental picture. :D

As always, you may click to embiggen.

I know most of my readership doesn’t really care about these art posts, but they’re my favourite content to go back and re-view later, so I’m gonna keep making them periodically. Because on top of everything else Spud is, he is also his own most important readership demographic.

More Than Words

Today, after a painfully long wait, the MayaNet list-building app has finally been updated for N3. No more must I construct lists using multiple books and a sheet of paper, brothers and sisters! After months of grueling arithmetic, Spud is free!

This wondrous event demanded that I employ more than mere text to express my joy and gratitude, so I dug out my tablet and got to work.

Say it with me, brothers and sisters!

May the blessings of Space Jesus be forever upon His children, Apollo and ToadChild.

Amen.

175 Years In The Future, There Are Only Panels

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have always opted to buy love. Really, it was the only option available to me– given my staggering menu of crippling personal flaws and blatantly antisocial attitudes, the only way I’ve been able to maintain any sort of social circle throughout my adult life has been through the balancing contribution of my works. My goal has always been to inspire in those around me, both in my physical and virtual spaces, a difficult moment of indecision.

“Okay, sure,” they say to themselves. “Spud may be kind of an asshole, and he does leave his crap lying around on four different tables wherever he goes, and the relentless bragging does get pretty f***ing irritating sometimes… but on the other hand… man, that blowfish was pretty awesome. Maybe if I put up with him for a while he’ll make me something pretty like that.”

And in that moment, they’ve unwittingly entangled themselves in my calculated cycle of grudging tolerance. Putting up with Spud does not, in the end, pay off for most people, but after years of practice I’ve perfected a manner of making it look like it might. I guess I’m sort of the lottery of human beings– a horrific investment obscured by really good marketing.

I made a thingie!

It’s for Infinity. It makes hacking less complicated by eliminating the irrelevant options in any situation. This way, even a dummy like me can figure out my options!

It’s also pretty.

That’s very important.
