Solo Games Appreciation Month
If you are reading my blog, chances are good that you also follow Solo Nexus. So it should not surprise you that I'm posting in support of Solo Games Appreciation Month.
I originally had a lot of grand plans. Back over the summer I planned to play out all of the Stalingrad campaign from THW. I ran into several logistical problems, the largest of which is my complete lack of Russian models. I shifted around on the miniatures front, planning 5150 campaigns or something with Song of Blades and Heroes. None of that worked for me.
So I think I'm back to my RPGs. It's time for Havelock, Flavia, and Kaltos to return to prosecuting the will of the Inquisition on heretics everywhere. But I have another idea. How about playing the bad guy?
Black Crusade is out and I've been looking it over. I've wondered how it would be to play a demonically possessed character who has willingly devoted himself to evil. That's not your typical role playing game fare. In fact, if you know anything about Chaos in the Warhammer 40K universe, these guys make Hitler look like a birthday clown. That should be an interesting challenge.
In any event, I'll be getting the story launched soon and I will try to complete a total story arc over the month. How does that sound?
