After a full day of gaming (and spending at the traders of course) some of us were able to get together for a some beers and a feed. It was a real hoot with many stories and tales told including the genesis of the GIMP label that Millsy now bears, banter about Analogue Hobby Challenges past and present, and laughing at jokes that only gamer geeks would understand. Names like Miles, Tamsin, Curt, Dave D may have come up in conversation and yes we had a beer for each of you in absentia.
We were also joined by Craig Woodfield, author of Ronin and En Garde! A really nice bloke, it was very interesting to hear his behind the scenes perspective on being an author and getting his work published.
At some point (late in the evening it must be admitted) we decided that what was missing most in our lives was a campaign system for SAGA. Clearly the only appropriate course of action was to write to Alex at Studio Tomahawk...on beer coasters. These will be hand delivered by Ian from War and Peace Games who he goes to Salute in April. I'm sure Alex will treasure them!
