September 26, 2009 Reports from Jimland
Exclusive! Jimland’s author, Jim Wright, has graciously allowed the NAGS Society to continue hosting the voluminous Reports from Jimland. Follow the adventures of stalwart Julius Flagstone, his fetching wife, Olivia, the Dullcotes, Big Jake Frere, and a cast of thousands… (Embarrassingly, they’ve been there all the time; I just neglected to provide the link).
July 25, 2009 Adventures in Jimland!
The NAGS Society and I have long been stalwart enthusiasts for Jim Wright’s game of dino hunting daring do, Adventures in Jimland. At long last it shall see light as a commercially published product from Minden Games. From the website:
Adventures in Jimland: Where Anything Can Happen is Minden's stand-alone adventure game about exploration and discovery in an unknown land, in a setting very much like late 19th century Africa.
You are a fearless explorer, ready to lead your Expedition into the wilds of Jimland, a vast, uncharted territory. You will need to hire the members of your Expedition, such as mercenary soldiers, local askari, and of course sturdy native bearers to carry your supplies.
Your Expedition must survive raging rivers, poisonous plants, bottomless ravines, and savage animalslike elephants, rhinos, gigantic ants, even dinosaursthat are very alive, and very hungry. Tribes of natives will also be encountered. Will they trade with you, or attack? On your adventure you will discover new species of plants and animals, trade for valuable goods, map uncharted territory. Maybe even come back alive. When you make it back to civilization you will cash in...before heading back out on another adventure.
June 18, 2009 Cork Buildings Update
Long time NAGS Society associate Warren Shultzaberger reached his point of tolerance in awaiting the long-promised photos of my Matakishi cork building project. Warren asked, and therefore, shall receive.
A few provisos, ipsos facto, notas bene, &c.: As with nearly all of my projects, nothing is complete. This one is in the early stages, so the buildings are primed or still raw cork. Nothing is painted (sigh).
I’m a novice digital photographer, so the pictures aren’t great. I tried to get enough so you could get a sense of the buildings. I have a cheap tripod, which I discovered upon editing the pictures that they all have a distinct list to the right. Please know that I build on strong foundations and this is not the Pulp City of Pisa.
Scott’s cork buildings on Photobucket
There is a second folder of my slightly-further-along 15mm pulp city project, which was built not with cork, but with cast plastic and bits of mounting board, foam core, &c. I’ll have more pictures of the rest of the buildings as well as more information on how I constructed them.
