Kinetic cards and verse music

Per my recent suggestion, various Ilk have been getting in touch with me about their projects. If you’re interested in helping out with any of these, don’t hesitate to contact the relevant individuals. One is what looks like a pretty interesting game project:

Legion 13 Games (L13G) is a small independent game design studio in Austin, TX, looking for 8 volunteer players to help us demo our new game product, NetWar: The First Connection. NetWar is a hybrid between a card game and a board game — what we at the studio call a Kinetic Card Game — and is making its first public appearance in December.

The first demo games will happen on Saturday, December 20, 2014, from noon to 4:00 PM at the Dragon’s Lair in Austin, TX. During the demo we will also have a Q&A with anyone who is not playing but interested in the game.

If you want to volunteer for one of the 8 spots, please send your name, age, and a short gamer bio to support(at) Players age 13+ are preferred. Spots will be filled on a first-come-first-served basis. Volunteers will receive a more detailed description of the game, the demo event, and the game manual in a PDF format ahead of time. L13G appreciates your time and interest, and will provide a special freebie to all volunteer players.

To get involved as a non-player, just show up at the event, watch the games in action, and ask a lot of questions. For more information about L13G and NetWar, visit our website:

The Responsible Puppet alerts us to the fact that the new Fighter Verse is out:

This CD contains 39 helpful and encouraging songs – passages from fourteen books of the Bible.
Featuring the talents of 35 musicians (adults and children), the musical styles are varied, including folk, jazz, pop, blue grass, doo-wop, string quartet and even Gregorian chant. The arrangements are designed so that you will enjoy listening to them and will learn the songs quickly and easily.

Here are some of the familiar passages on this CD: “I am the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6) — The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) — Unless the Lord builds the house those who build it labor in vein (Psalm 127:1) — “I am the resurrection and the life” (John 11:25-26) — Fear not, for I am with you (Isaiah 41:10) — “My Sheep hear my voice and I know them” (John 10:27-30).

I haven’t forgotten about the Life Design stuff, but with everything that’s been going on with regards to the books, games, and other work, I’ve had to push that back to January. So, enjoy the holidays and we’ll delve into that in the new year.
