Finally got around to scanning some damaged negatives from my 2017 trip to the Grand Canyon. While I'd have liked them to be pristine, I'm at peace with the interesting character the damage imparts to the images.

I very much want to go back.

The major improvements in this version include putting the vehicle equipment upgrades close to the most relevant crew positions, and including some reminder text for most of them to explain how they work. It took some time and creating some new icons to make it work!

There are three different basic vehicle layouts in Roar of Alliance in order to add variety in two different arenas: enemy behavior (different seating order for the crew means different actions) and player tactical choice (both in customizing their own vehicles and in where to shoot at the enemy).

That first part is important because there is no GM - the enemies run on simple rules so adding variety keeps things interesting between different battles.

These are the 9th and current version of the vehicle record sheets for Roar of Alliance, my role playing board game of pulp WW2 tank action. Barring the discovery of major errors, this is the version of these sheets going with me to Nerdly in a little more than a week.

I'll also be taking a camera to do some astrophotography or light painting (partly dependent on weather). If you'll be there, you're welcome to participate with your own gear, or as a subject or even an observer!

Are you going to campnerdly.org this year?

I'll be there, and I'm bringing the prototype for Roar of Alliance, my role playing board game of pulp WW2 tank crews!

Join me in bonding over shared hardships and smashing fascist scum beneath the treads of our customized tanks!

A fun little shot of a squirrel in my back yard over the weekend.

I'm going to Camp Nerdly this year!
Of course, their website is down now, but hopefully not for long:

The Murkborn Emperor, whose very touch corrupts, coming soon(tm) to a tabletop game near you.

Current illustration in progress, transforming sketches into drawings one tiny detail at a time.

That feeling when you're really happy with a sketch and don't want to ruin it by turning it into a drawing.

Current prototype game board for my RPG Roar of Alliance. The game has a pretty big physical footprint, with this board plus character sheets, vehicle sheets, and crew position half-sheets on the table.
