Peace Through Superior Firepower

Well, I thought it was a cool slogan, anyway.

So hrm. I don’t think you all really want to hear about how Whir and I shot each other a lot at BF1942, though I ought to point out that the Italian engineer kit gets a bayonet on the end of their rifle, and that’s way more fun that is legal. So’s the rocket pack in Secret Weapons, for that matter.

Maybe I could talk about how Cole and I played Battletech, and Cole’s Goliath Scorpion mech star held off an assault mech star of Hell’s Horses stuff, finally retreating before the awesome might of the Dire Wolf Prime, if maybe not the Black Lanner Prime. Ye Olde Custome Night Gyr is, however, a fairly frightening sight, unless you’re, well, the Dire Wolf.

Or, just because I haven’t for a while, I could talk about Civ, and how I’m in two different succession games revolving around the Napoleonic Wars conquest in C3C. So here’s RBC 15d – Austria and RBC 15g – Prussia.

Also, we went to the Rennaisance Faire on Saturday. This was fun, though these things are always better if you have money, which I kind of don’t. Nevertheless, there was jousting, people in costumes, people selling sharp pointy objects of various sorts (and a few blunt heavy objects, too, for variety), and things of that sort.

So pretty much the Dire Wolf rocks, Napoleon is a loser for not breaking through our worker blockade in RBC 15d, and used bookstores kick ass.

That will be all.

You should at least point out that the sniper rifles all suck and their engineer counterparts are far better for everything, including sniping.

Except those really rare times when the sniper rifle actually, you know, kills people with head shots and stuff.

So like every 5th map or so.

ooOOOoOOoOoo, thank you for reminding me to sign up for membership in the International Wenches Guild. Ren fairs are the bomb. We never have any here. :(
