A Tales From The Loop TV series is coming

So, one RPG I’ve been looking to run for quite a while is Tales From The Loop, a game developed by Modiphius Entertainment based on the excellent sci-fi artwork by Simon Stalenhag. Taking place in a 1980s that never was, the players take on the roles of a bunch of kids who end up getting into adventures with the futuristic and the paranormal– which should be familiar territory for anyone who has watched Stranger Things.

The Siege of Inverius, Part 2: Brother Against Brother

c. Games Workshop and Fantasy Flight Games

The air down in section 55-Tertius of the smelled different than the dank, filthy squalor of the rest of the underhive. There was an aggressively cleanliness to it, a chemical taste at the back of Cervantes’ mouth that spoke to the presence of antibacterial agents, counterseptic regimens and antiviral compounds. The rows of tanks, filled with glimmering green fluid, filled the entire place with an unearthy viridian glow that shone brightly against the polished white stone of the place. On Inquisitor Zao’s orders, this section of the underhive had been sequestered as storage facility with which to stockpile medical supplies. In a time of war, such as this, it would be imperative to keep vital medical supplies out of reach of a displaced, scavenging populace, so that proper triage and treatement protocols could be enacted when it was safe to do so.

Unfortunately, this place was anything but secure…especially now that there were wolves lurking in the shadows.

The Siege of Inverius, Round 1: The Devourer Descends

The catacombs stank. Thousands of years ago, they had been used to channel the waste effluent of the Invernus’ manufactoria out into the rad-wastes beyond the hive city, though they had long since been abandoned and closed off. Even after those millennia, however, the chemical reek of the place and the stench of decay persisted, even through the filters of Watch-Sergeant Cervantes’ helmet. No one had been down here since that time, not even scavvers of the underhive or the reclamation servitors of the manufactoria.

Which meant, of course, that it was the perfect place for xenos to infiltrate the city.

Battle Summary: Drukhari and Craftworlds vs Chaos and Tau

(c. Blazblazos)

So, a few days ago I took a break from testing out the Sisters and took my Drukhari to one of my LGS, Hairy Tarantula North, for a 1000 point 40k tournament using ITC rules. As this was the first tournament I had been attending in ages, I was rather apprehensive. As it turned out, however, all of my apprehension was for nothing: with only three or four tables, the store was completely unprepared for the massive turnout they ended up recieving, and as a result spots went to the first people to arrive. Sadly, I was not one of them.

Ruminating on the to-do list

c. Dave Kendall https://40k.gallery/view/scribe/

So lately, it feels like writing has become something of a Sisyphean task for me. It’s not so much that writing itself is all that difficult: if anything, I’ve found that I’ve had more to say, and more energy with which to write it. The problem is, lately it feels like the things that I want to do are vastly outstripping the time with which I have/want to do them.
