[Musings of a Game Store Owner] Subtleties of Suggestion

Most businesses these days have some form of feedback stream. Whether it's surveys, websites with the "contact us" box, or "we want to hear from you" claims, it's a fair idea that businesses are looking for information from their customers on all levels of their operations.

An old take on this sort of thing is a suggestion box. you have probably seen them in a lot of commercial locations and never really thought about why they are there. Many folks pay good money to have those forms examined on a regular basis, and analyze what is said along with why it's said.

[Auspicious Alchemy] 40k: Kitbashing Glory Boys, Part 1

Greetings all!

For those of you who don't know me, I am The Warlock. Capital T, capital W.I hail from the merry ol' land of Oz. Loquacious and Lauby were kind enough to offer me a spot here on the HoP as an author. It took a lotta square pink pills of -5 to Screaming to go through with this. As of now, I'm unsure as to what my schtick will be as there's hobby stuff and talk about systems here already. HOWEVER (you're gonna see this word a lot) I'll probably do general hobby stuff as in kitbashing and painting for you all. This is the first time writing as a wordy bastard on someone else's blog so I'm gonna do my best to live up to any and every expectation both real and imagined. Today's feature presentation is a Warhammer 40k kitbash starring: The Emperor's Finest TM and the newer Astra Millipede Tempestening Scones. I could call them by the faux latin name, but then...scones...and pills...

These pills keep me sane. They're pink and have a W on them for some reason.
Page break? Page break. More words? More words.

Monday Madness 4

Last we checked, Loquacious had wrangled a pardon for BushCraft out of an extremely inebriated Internet Judge, cementing his servitude continued employment at the finest Hobby Blog Network on the internet.

Lo has returned to the Headquarters (which are still under renovation), and finds her throne intact. She sits to relax after fixing yet another mess caused by the many bloggers under her command. Just as her considerable self begins to rest upon her seat, an unusual sound emanates from every corner of the hotbed of blogs.

[Confessions of an English Zombie Fancier] Wipe Away Your Tiers

With week two of the league out of the way (or rather, it will be by the time you read this; I, on the other hand, will be on a barge, drinking heavily with the rest of my vice-ridden colleagues) the time has come to advance to 25 points, which brings with it a troubling question; to Theme or not to Theme?

I'd been tempted from the start. Merely for accepting the restrictions of the Scavengers of the Line Theme Force, one gets to slam one's Mechanithralls upfield with Advance Deploy. Hot diggety damn, you might think; certainly having one's screen six inches further forward and thus one's screenables on one's starting line helps with the all important business of Getting Across The Board.

I stole this from Nikephoros because I'm a bad person. It depicts something Cryx don't like to see.
