He Only Tells The Truth

So we’ve created a new Flat game we have. It’s called the five dollar challenge and it basically acts as a put-your-money-where-your-mouth-is enforcer. Long story short I spent most of my weekend forbidden from sleeping. But that was fine by me because I’ve got Bastion to play and play Bastion I did. There was even a point at about 9 am Saturday where the gamer spirit possessed my body and I hacked and slashed my way through three or four levels without a single lucid thought.

Only The Best At Trotters Independent Traders

So, last week during our DnD session the gang came across a familiar group of entrepreneurs. A couple of the characters from our other party showed up in a market place, peddling their wares. I thought it only fitting that Victor take the role of his old character. Boy was I wrong.
Now the party is freakin’ rich! But we’ll see how long that lasts…


It’s Rugby World Cup mania around here. My office is right on the viaduct in Auckland, AKA Party Central, so every square foot of ground outside is covered in about three people. We had a couple of beers and watched the waka roll into the harbour from the elevation of the boss’s office.
I’m not a big fan of rugby (which is a federal offense in NZ, so don’t tell) but the clubs is gonna be off the chain this weekend. And maybe for a few to come.

Inspect This!

So, the long long weekend is finally over. Another 24 hours in transit has deposited me back in Auckland somewhat exhausted. The 14 hour and 19 minute flight across the pacific was brightened by the fact that I ended up with two empty seats next to me on the plane. But that’s a story for another comic where we flee the sun.

My thanks go out to all the awesome people I met on this trip, you really made PAX into the spectacle I was hoping for. I didn’t think I would be able to pick at random from a crowd of sixty thousand and make instant friends, but that’s exactly what happened. Several times in fact.

So this is the last of the pre-PAX, I’m-in-a-rush comics and it covers a game I am yet to play. Give me half an hour and that little problem will be behind us though, STEAM is currently working it’s magic.
