Nuke-Con 2015

So, Nuke-Con 2015 is over. 25th Anniversary of the con also. There were a lot of games run and played. I personally ran 4 games of Sentinels of the Multiverse. It seemed to go over quite well. Definitely added to the repeat run list. I also picked up Star Wars: Armada Core set, the Gladiator Star Destroyer, duplicate Nebulon-B and CR90 Corellian Corvettes, and an Imperial fighter squadron pack and Rebel/Republic fighter squadron pack. So along with the core set, I can field a 3 ship Imperial fleet vs a 5 ship Rebel fleet, with 20 fighter squadrons per side. This is something I am definitely looking into for Nuke-Con 2016.

Also got to see a bunch of old friends and meet some new ones. Got a chance to catch up with some friends and family also. If you are in the Nebraska/Iowa/South Dakota/Kansas/Missouri area, I suggest going to Nuke-Con at least once.

Not gone or forgotten

Been a while since I’ve made an update. Most of what I’ve been doing in my spare time has been with the Astra Imperia Aide. I’m working on a launcher that will update to the latest version of the program files and database. There will be an option to not update, if you are so inclined. Other than that, I’ve been adding localization to the program. Currently it has English and German. Volunteers for other languages would be nice.

Characters

Over the next few days, I’ll be posting some character write ups in Eldritch Adventures and Via Astrum. The first two characters will be for Eldritch Adventures and are characters of mine originally in D&D. The first is Farsi Demotaka, a kensai; and the second is Arthur, a mage forced to hide his talents due to magic being outlawed in his home country.

Following this will be my take on some iconic science-fiction characters. To keep any potential copyright arguments at bay, the characters will be referred to by their archetype rather than name. I am sure that they can be figured out fairly easily.
