|A Dangerous Man?|
At a loose end this evening, I decided that, after a year of actually playing the game, I should finally read the rules for 'Maurice'.
Yes, I slipped on my reading glasses, settled down with a nice cup of tea and some episodes of 'Star Fleet' in the background, and read the basic game rules. I still have the Advanced and Campaign rules to do, but I can get by without them for now. I am ready to take to the battlefields of 18th Century Europe with skill and panache! Fear me!
In other news we went to see 'Pacific Rim' today. If you have any interest or love of either giant monsters or giant robots then you need to go and see it. It certainly lived up to my expectations. It's a faithful and affectionate tribute to its original source material, but has a style all its own, with a good cast and some entertaining character interactions. The human cast are as interesting as the machines and monsters; a rarity for this type of film.
I need more big robots in my kaiju collection now ...
