Been a little low of late.A little painting has been done on my Empress Miniatures Pathans.Otherwise little to report. We have been playing quite a bit of this-
Forbidden Island.It is a most exciting and engrossing cooperative game. On the subject of games I have ordered TSATF and it's 1920s/1930s supplement. It has shipped and I look forward to reading it soon.Hopefully they will provide a good set of rules for my Tradgardistan gaming.That's about all apart from a photo of what is on the coffee table in the way of some of my current reading-
Ooops I nearly forgot to say thanks for your fantasy rules suggestions.I am having a think...

“In sorrow we must go, but not in despair. Behold! we are not bound for ever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien


  1. Good stuff Alan - I'll be interested to see what you do with TSATF.

  2. An interesting stack of reading material!

  3. Hi Alan. Nice to see an issue of Mallorn there...I don't think I've seen one for 20 years or so.

  4. Hope you work out what you need for Middle Earth Fantasy Alan- I've just been through a bit of a debating time on what exactly my project should be- takes awhile, though now resolved on what to do. Best Wishes. KEV.

  5. I hope you feel better soon. My painting output always decreases when my spirits are low.
    I'm going to check out Forbidden Island. I love cooperative games, but don't really have enough of them.

    By the way, where is that Tolkien quote from? It's beautiful.
