Classified Deck Partial Update – HVT: Kidnapping

datetime October 2, 2017 1:47 PM

Just a quick note for today: I’ve updated my Classified Objectives deck with a card for the new HVT: Kidnapping objective.

I’m having some weird issues with the site for the online printer I’ve traditionally used for professionally-printed decks, so at this time, I have the new card available ONLY in PDF format for you to print yourself. The purchasable versions will be available at some point later, once I figure out why the site is being dumb.

If you’d like to print a new deck from scratch, all of the Printable PDF versions have been updated on my Infinity Tools page (in the same colour, language, and paper size choices as before). If you already use a printed version of the deck and only need the new card, you can grab just the new Kidnapping card here:

Each of these links leads to a ZIP file containing five PDFs: one with a single card in each of the four back colours, and one PDF that has all four back colours on one page (in case you want to print them for a large group). As always, make sure to print these PDFs at actual size, and not “fit-to-page”, as the latter will come out at wrong size for standard card sleeves.

Note pour les joueurs Français: Quand j’ai fait la version originale de ces cartes, les propres règles Français n’étaient pas publis par Corvus Belli, alors les titres et les règles sur mes cartes ne s’alignaient pas avec les règles officielles pour les objectifs qui on suivi. Pendant que j’avais mes fichiers ouverts par même façon, j’ai mis à jour tous les cartes aux titres et mots des règles propres. L’exception pour celà est le nouvel objectif, HVT: Enlèvement, qui utilise une traduction par Avadan sur les forums Bureau Aegis. Merci Avadan pour votre aide! :DAlors, si vous avais une pile de la version originale, ça mérite peut-être imprimer une nouvelle copie avec la nouvelle langage.

I’m going to keep poking away at the online printer’s site to see if I can get the decks updated there; once those are available, I’ll make a quick follow-up post here on the blog.


Improvised Mediocrity

This will eventually be a post about some space terrain.

But, quick tangent to talk about how great I am first.

I am, as the title of this blog accurately states, amazing. And the things that I build have a strong tendency to manifest that same property. However, such quality of output does not happen on its own. While my most amazing amazingness appears to be born purely out of brilliant ideas and skilled implementation, there is a crucial step whose importance even I tend to forget: planning.

I am a very good planner (in that I’m good at anticipating most of the elements of a future project that require preconceptualization, and most of the problems that I will need to solve along the way) and a competent enough concept artist, and a lengthy concept stage always dramatically improves the quality of my final products. For a few recent-ish examples…

Space Minister McDimplesmirk

When Aleph cast its digital gaze upon NeoCanada, it saw a Space Nation in crisis. Ingratitude, discourtesy, and poutine shortages had gripped its people, leaving the Human Sphere’s politest neighbour in chaos.

However, Aleph did not despair. It knew that the good people of NeoCanada could return to the straight and snowy path, if only they had a inspirational figure to lead them there. And so the AI dug through the annals of NeoCanadian history to find exactly what USAriadna’s Hat was missing:

Firm abs and sexy eyes.

Mmmmm. <3

Io! Panem Divinum Cum Caseo

So, I know I already posted this month, but, uh… I blacked out after eating some questionable pork this morning, and when I came to in the early evening, there was a scale model of a cheese sandwich mounted on a plinth sitting on my desk.

And based on the pictures I found on my camera, I’m pretty sure I’m responsible. 🙁

I haven’t been terribly productive for the past six months. However, while I’ve generally failed to successfully make things, the rate at which I plan to make things has not really slowed down. Most of these plans take the form of vague outlines in the back of my head or excited-but-fruitless discussions with my friends and associates. A precious few plans, though, have passed the important barrier of being committed to paper.

A concept in my head has about a 10% chance of seeing the light of day. A concept that makes it to the drawing stage jumps to about 80%. The project might be tackled right away or it may sleep for a few years before I find the time and enthusiasm to begin labouring, but sooner or later, Spud Art usually becomes Spud Tangible Objects.

With that said, let’s take a look at something that I will probably build… eventually… maybe. ~_~
