I guess it's my turn....

I've noticed this award going around and despite the fact it seems like a form of chain letter, I am pleased to announce that this blog has been nominated for a Stylish Blogger Award! Many thanks to El Grego for the nomination (what took you guys so long, huh?)

There are four rules that need to be followed after receipt of this award:

1. Link back and thank the nominating party - Thanks again El Grego!
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3. Nominate 10-15 other blogs for this award.
4. Contact those bloggers above about the nomination.

Seven things...

• I've worked for almost 20 years at a large greeting card company located in Kansas City. ( Care enough to send the very best. I have kids to put through college.)
• Despite playing with soldiers for most of my life, I've never had a desire to be one. (It's that artist's disdain for authority)
• I rarely miss a Thursday night gaming session.
• I HATE the smell of patchouli (4 years of art school will do that to you.)
• Every Christmas my family and I watch all 13 hours of the extended Lord of the Rings trilogy in one sitting. (OK that's not quite true. We shut it off at Sam's wedding.)
Lead Addict and my wife are convinced I cheat at games. A blatant lie. If I cheated, they'd never know.
• If given a choice, "First the zombies, then the robots, then the tanks."
And now, in no particular order, the next nominees (some are not wargames blogs):

Lead Addict
Dropship Horizon
Battle Royale with Cheeze
I See Lead People
Emperor vs Elector
and everyone else linked here on the right of your screen....

Sorry about the delay - I was still in shock after seeing my nomination...

And by the way, mind if I borrow the top-down artwork of the units from the recent Might&Reason write-up? It would be a good way for me to test out the rules for some Half-Continent gaming.

Thanks, Sir Baron, for the nomination! I shall try to be worthy of it, and do solemnly pledge to make every effort to keep my blog "stylish".

I love what you are doing with the game table by the way!!! I want to see it in person with all the Cave stuff in action!

Dear Mr. Baron,

Back in 2008 you ran a medieval campaign, "Campaign for the Kingdom." Rules used were Flower of Chivalry, one base units with a roster. For the campaign results you showed a "tree" of shields/names for the King, the current Pretender, and the Rest. Each Shield/Name had a numeric value beside it. I assume these were some kind of victory point count.

Could you please explain how your campaign worked, how the shield tree was used, how victory points were gained or lost, how the next pretender was determined, etc? If you don't want to do this on your blog, send me an email at jimw31 at cox dot net and we can discuss it offline.
