Skeleton Archers picked the Regiment Colour of my Undead

At some points during my first games of Age of Sigmar, I felt some ranged attacks would be helpful. At that time, Skeleton Archers were still a valid option, although already not available from Games Workshop anymore. So I got myself some older models. But instead of going with the Egyptian theme, I sent them into winter wonderland.

Starting my Flesh-eater Courts

When I started painting miniatures, I intended to get only those that would support my roleplaying games. I wanted some figures that weren't too specific. Something I could use on several occasions. Running a long-term fantasy campaign about a dark wizard, acquiring miniatures that could substitute demons and undead alike seemed a good idea. Remembering the odd behaviour of Reaper Bones material, I wanted to try a different brand. Also, friends were warming me up to Age of Sigmar. That's why I finally bought a starter set from Games Workshop and picked the Crypt Ghouls first.

Why Leadership can Improve by Gaming

The comparison between games and work is maybe not obvious. Some might even reject that comparison. Work is a serious business, something to wear yourself out. That's why we get paid for it. But must work be that way? Don't we send the wrong message, if we shape work that way?

Without trust ... it's just scary

Trust is the basis of human relationships. Loss of trust ends partnerships and employment contracts. Gain of trust lets you make friends and win at court.

It is often implied all players in a roleplaying game would trust each other. But that's not only untrue at conventions. There are also slight differences between friends, even within the same group. Much worse are roleplaying games in a work environment or for educational purposes because they even lack the expectation of fun that would otherwise bind participants. That's when roleplaying becomes agony.

About me

If it has rules of interaction, I'm interested!

I believe that humans are bound to cooperate as individuals. I also believe, it is difficult to cooperate as individuals. Luckily humanity not only invented bar brawls and backstabbing, but also rules, agreements and mediation. Gaming and playing are ways to learn and practise the necessary skills of human interaction. It brings fun into the trial and error of conflict resolution. It also comes with a lot of cool thingies.

 

Hello, I'm Bjørn, and though legally German I see myself more as a European citizen. Since 1972 I lived in several parts of Germany, went to school in Ireland and worked in the Netherlands. I remember my parents reading The Lord of the Rings for bedtime, so in hindsight, no one should have been surprised I jumped into roleplaying on the first possible occasion - which came around in 1984.

This led to writing and publishing fiction. My first released novel was based on the German version of the  roleplaying game The Dark Eye. Publishing led to working in the publishing industry, which also led to writing about writing and publishing. After a while, I went full circle and released roleplaying material, like an official module for the Dungeons & Dragons campaign Living Greyhawk.

The main focus of this website will be tabletop gaming. But seeing games as a playground for other forms of social interaction, I will splash in some opinions on other matters for good measures.
