Lobster award

First of all, I would like to thank Dreamer from SoloRPGgamer and M.C. Monkey - Dew from his MCMDGames for nominating this blog for Lobster Award. 
Unfortunately since all the blogs I read received this award recently, or have more then 200 followers and there fore are not applicable, or publicly reject this kind of inter-blog awarding, I will have to stop the chain.
Once again, thanks to all who read my blog, hope that you will be visiting in the future also.
And look at my blog list on the right of the main page, there are some really good blogs out there, please check them out also.

Luck of the dwarfs

It's been a while since I had a chance to play any wargame. So today I decided to roll some dice, and I decided to go with game of Song of Blades and Heroes, using solo rules by Mats Lintonsson.
Therefor, my Ratmen warband decided to explore old ruined shrine defended by some pesky dwarfs...

Well, it was one of those games when luck just decided not to cooperate. Any good roll I made belonged to dwarfs warband...
 What should be equal fight: Rat ogre (c5!), giant rat and beastmaster against 4 dwarfs, ended with GRUESOME deaths of both my beasts!
Beastmaster returned to the forest, where he was joined by assassin and 2 rat pilgrims. I regrouped hoping that my luck will change, but...
Dwarfs also regrouped, except berserker who moved into contact, without enough actions to attack. So, berserker is heavily outnumbered (c1) and my assassin (c2) moves for a kill with power attack... Aaaaand.... 1 for assassin, 6 for berserker, assasin is nothing less but KILLED!
The rest of my warband just picked up their tails and left the table....
Better luck to me next time...

Power Surge Superhero solo card game

Most of my time in last couple of weeks was invested into design of my new game.
Finally I have finished the first version I am satisfied with.
At the moment, the game is called Power Surge and by theme it is Solo Superhero Collectable Card Game.

The current version can be considered material for closed beta testing, and, as some of you already know, I have already distributed the files to several play-testers I know that are interested in superheroes, solo games and/or  CCG.

At the moment, I would like to have 2 or 3 play-testers more, so if you are reading this and wish to try the game, contact me at sharanac (at)

Free again

Its been a year and a half since I started working for a big international company producing parts for automotive industry.
This meant big and secure paycheck, but also 10 to 12 hours in the office each day.
Finally I had enough of that, so I went to plant manager and told him So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish.

The good thing is that I have all my free days available, and with upcoming holidays, I will be at payed vacation from today until 8th of January.
For that time I have big plans, sorted in following order:
1. Catch up spending time with my kid, I was hardly seeing him lately
2. Catch up with my poetry, I have not published a book since April 2010, and I have written only 3 poems since then, so some serious work in that field is in order
3. Catch up with my gaming, painting and this blog :)

And so, with little luck, number of texts on this blog will grow in next month.
Unfortunately, in January I will have to look for new job, since freelance writers in Eastern Europe can not feed hungry mouths in family, not to mention famous irrational hunger for new books, miniatures, boardgames...
