Episode 20 is edited and waiting for the bolter segment. I plan to have the next installment of the Battle for Detros Mitus recorded tomorrow and edited over the weekend. I intend to drop this episode late this weekend or very early next week.
It’s a solid episode and was a pleasure editing. I can’t wait to pass it along to our listeners. We will also be announcing another giveaway so pay attention for that.
A friendly reminder. If you can get to Wargames Con in Austin, TX, the weekend of August 26th, come join us for some great narrative gaming and what is shaping up to be an awesome event. Sergeant Valus will be there, stop by and say hi.
The Orks push back the Elysians and stop the Raven Guard from cutting off their reinforcements. The Orks mass for a counter offensive to drive them off their continent.
A greater threat approaches.
The tendrils of the Leviathan have reached the sector. The dangers posed by the Tyranids became clear as the skies to the east darkened and leather skinned wings delivered teeth and claw. The biomass on the planet is great. It will be a powerful beacon to the ever consuming dragon. Emperor’s throne. . . we are all doomed.
The Narrative Guys are running a two day narrative event there. I know this isn’t the first Narrative Con event they’ve run, but it’s my first time going to one and hot damn I’m excited! From what I’ve seen on the internet, their events are to narrative gamers as Adepticon or LVO is to competative play.
I had the pleasure of chatting with Dan and Glenn at Adepticon and went over ideas to support a nationwide/global narrative game. Those events are starting to unfold now and I can’t wait to see where we can take it. Maybe it’s in the cards that NGC40k will be running a narrative event at a Con soon too.
The best way to show support for these types of events is to go to them. Check out The Narrative Guys, get inspired, start a campaign and join us at Wargames Con.
In our nineteenth episode Mark and Peter return after what seems like forever. We discuss what we’ve been up to in the hobby and games played. We also discuss The Narrative Guys Beta, the global campaign that Peter discussed in previous episodes; and how we participated in that.
Segment 1: We review the Space Marines Codex, NGC style. We delve codex deep into the codex fluff of the Ultramarines.
Segment 2: We create a narrative campaign from scratch, on the fly. We go through the who, why and what of the campaign process. It was a lot of fun creating it and look forward to the first game.
Bolter Segment: The Battle for Detros Mitus continues as the orks make their advance on the Sabre Ridge. (a repeat of last episodes, sorry, family life got in the way of recording the newest segment)
Thanks to all that donated, including the local store Pegasus Games. A huge thanks to David and Matt. They have the double hearts of the Astartes. And rounding things out, thanks to our sponsor Rear Echelon Games for throwing in some discount vouchers.
You all have been great, the guys really appreciate it. I’m glad we are a strong community that can help turn a tragic event around for people when they need it.
