Scary Empire Guy is back. Scary Empire Guy is back! We thought he was gone. We thought he was stranded in Livingston with a broken ankle and two non-functional vans, but I saw him at the hobby store last night in the Warhammer section, sending out palpable waves of no hygene. Aaaaaaaggghhhh! We thought his wife had forbidden him from buying any more Warhammer stuff (as he spent roughly 1.5 times as much as he made at Hardees for the year last time), but she was there, too.


He'll be back to League Night, I just know it. And when he comes back, he'll start with the "well, that model is kneeling, so he should get +1 to his ballistic skill, right?", or "even though my knights are running for their lives, they still manage to stomp your skirmisher unit flat because they're on horses!" And when he starts to lose, he'll get really, really angry and clutch his temples and generally make like Bruce Banner. Oh, man... I can't believe he's back.

It's great for it. Milk works as well.

I use Goo Gone on just about everything that has sticker residue or scuff marks. If you do Goo Gone it, Windex it after to get off the oil and fingerprints. Probably a good idea when using milk, as well.

Ack. We had a guy like this at our gaming club. We were very rude to him on repeated occasions, but still he came.

"Since I have my own webcomic, I can put any character in it I want. But not disney, though, you know why? I'll tell you. Disney violated the sacred space.

This one's a Sequoia goddess. She doesn't really look like a Sequoia goddess, but I assure you, she is one."

What is the sacred space? Unless he means Disney raped him, then keep it to yourself.

Yu-Gi-Oh people are all kinds of scary. Sometimes they talk like the cartoon characters, and then you have to bludgeon them to death with a sock full of pewter. Maybe we should bludgeon Scary Empire Guy with a sock full of pewter...

Is the sacred space some kind of Yu-Gi-Oh term, then? Because we had no idea what the fuck he was babbling about, and didn't want to.

I have no idea. The only thing I was able to clearly grasp from the episodes I watched was that the guy with the cool hair wanted to "dominate" the guy with the spikey purple hair with his "Millenium Rod." He also said something about an Egyptian God card. It combined two of my least favorite things in the entire world: the horrible, endless, torturous fight scenes from Dragonball Z (purgatory with energy blasts!); and watching two CCG munchkins argue over an obscure, poorly-worded rule.

Yu Gi Oh disturbs me. Mostly 'cause they seem to have derived much of their mythos from English Civil War battles. Quite odd really.

ARGH. Spent an hour and a half writing and turned out total shit! I am not fond of this scene that I've crafted. It was so torturous just getting the dialogue out that I dropped most of the panel descriptions, and I have FOUR GODDAM PAGES OF PURE DIALOGUE! I really need to reconsider this scene, but I can't figure out how to do it. So stuck!

This is where comics as a medium can be very limiting.

EDIT: I couldn't sleep, so I did some cleaning. While doing so, I realized that simply by shifting the location the scen takes place in from the house to the school, a lot of the problems can be taken care of. I can show a good chunk of the dialogue instead of telling it, and I'll have more things to focus on during the dialogue that I AM telling. Plus, it allows me to merge in an expository scene I had a little later (the last of them, I'm thinking - plot begins soon.)

Yay! Problem solved.

EDIT 2: HEY GUYS GUESS WHO CAN'T SLEEP!

From the London Underground, yeah. They have little marquee screens that show the final destination of the train, with the syntax "This train is for ______." This one's happened to be an area called "Cockfosters."
