I started a wiki page for Warhammer Quest. I am using a nifty single-page document called TiddlyWiki. Visit TiddlyWiki.com to get a copy and instructions on how to use it. In my opinion, it is a really handy tool for all sorts of things. I have begun to use it as a planner for organizing my thoughts to write a novel.
The Warhammer Quest wiki I am calling Warhammer-Quest-A-Pedia, because I intend to use it as a quick reference to help remind some players of rules, interpretations and etc... Also, I plan to use it as a place to share my commentary on various aspects of the game. For instance, I have two sections on game strategy so far: Combat Strategies and Healing Strategies.
It is a work in progress. Also, it is fairly easy to save a copy to your pc. Just use the Save As
option from your browser menu.
Here is the Warhammer-Quest-A-Pedia location (hosted at my Old Warrior's Stronghold site): Warhammer-Quest-A-Pedia
Let the Games Go On!
Thanks to the quick return of two fine Warhammer Quest players (Starfighter and Aecrylis), I now have more than enough to keep me busy again!
I guess I already had plenty to do, seeing that I have several solo games going... But, it just isn't the same. It seems I gain a certain amount of satisfaction from knowing that others, though few in number, are actually enjoying the games that I am able to orchestrate here.
Add to this fact that some have expressed much appreciation for my Warhammer Quest custom stuff website,
and I really feel like I am contributing to something special.
I mean where else in this world can one destroy evil monsters, save the lives of friends, rescue maidens in distress, find great treasures, write fairy tales using a sometimes-over-active imagination, and etc.... ? Well, there likely are other means to accomplish these things, but this one has a special place in my heart and mind. :)
Warriors Missing in Action?
Oh dear me! I have been given a bit of a reprieve from updating the games this week, since two of the most active players (Starfighter and Aecrylis) have been missing much of the time from the games.
This fact, plus the arrival of a Warhammer Quest gamer by the ID of Paulus WHQ, with whom I doubt I ever got to play (back in the days of Webquest), led me to dive into the creation of a brand new WQ game in my message board --- as if I didn't have enough of them already! ;)
This new game, currently entitled Dungeonus Classicus: Initiation
, features the four original warrior types found in the Warhammer Quest game -- Barbarian, Elf, Wizard and Dwarf. This is an interesting combination, considering that most of the games I GM here have one or more custom warriors -- the majority I think having 2 to 4 custom warriors.
Anyway, I am hoping that our fellow gamers, who have been at least partly missing in action, will soon return to the "front lines" of monster-slaying action. I also hope even more so that nothing bad has hindered them from playing (good hindrances are okay).
EDIT: Now, I see Aecrylis visiting my message board. This is great news! (I hope). Perhaps, now the games will become more active again! :)
Welcome to Old Warrior's Online Journal
. ("Blog" sounds a bit ugly to me, but then again I am not very handsome myself. :) )
Primarily, I intend this journal for the users of my WQ-WHQ Old Warrior message board
. The public, however, is welcome to read. I am just unsure as to how interesting it may be to the general reader.
I am thinking of posting here some observations, plans, wishes, musings and etc... which relate to the game Warhammer Quest and the online version(s) of this game. But, I may also comment some on my life circumstances and other subjects that might be of interest to my fellow gamers.
If the reader becomes inspired to respond to anything I write here, he may visit my message board and post in my Off Topic Things
topic, or wherever the subject seems appropriate elsewhere in the forums and topics available.
