ACTA: My Federation fleet

First up, I've updated my reference cards for ACTA. The Federation fleet is now completely finished! At least, until the Gettysburg and Mars are released. Check them out!

I've also finally finished a bunch of my Federation ships, and posted pictures. So, here you go!

NaNo: Writing Sample #5

Apologies for the delay. No internet and having my time eaten up means I'm definitely not finishing this project, but I will persevere! Also, to make up for it, I'll try my best to go for daily samples from now on. Hopefully THAT will keep me going, heh.

NaNo: Writing Sample #3

And another sample! The battle approaches, and Admiral du Saniel readies himself for combat, while having a brief conversation with his executive officer about the implications of the battle. Enjoy!

Also, keep in mind, the samples won't be contiguous from now on. There's a gap between #2 and #3 here, and this pattern will continue. But you'll at least get an idea of where I'm going with the book.

NaNo: Writing sample #2

The adventure continues! Today's sample is immediately after the first one, but later samples will likely have gaps in the narrative between them, so keep that in mind. I was actually going to fast forward a bit, but I figured I'd include this part to establish the character of Grand Admiral du Saniel, as well as provide a brief look at the wider universe (what's left of it, anyway). Enjoy!

NaNo: Writing Sample #1

NaNoWriMo is upon us! What is it, you might be asking? National Novel Writing Month, an annual internet sensation wherein thousands of people attempt to write an entire novel within the month of November. The goal is 50,000 words of original material by the end of the month, and, though many fall short, they find it an awesome motivation to write and at least get started on getting the creative juices flowing.

40K: Lords of Oblivion rules for Deathwatch

There's a series of tabletop RPGs based on 40K and published by Fantasy Flight Games. Simply put, they rock. Tons of extra lore exploring aspects of the 40K universe that aren't necessarily covered very much in the core 40K books, or even the Black Library novels, comprehensive rules that actually reward you for roleplaying properly, and each game is different enough to give a fairly distinct playing experience.
