The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacogalupi is a wonderful book. I usually don't post non-40k books on this site but I have to give a shout out to this book. It is always very cool to read a book builds a believable and different world. The characters in this book were well thought out and the storyline was constantly moving. I haven't read a book like this since SnowCrash or Neuromancer which captures a near future world so well but presents it in a way that is both alien and familiar. Hats off to Paolo for a great book and if you have any interest in expanding out your Sci-fi world, I highly recommend it.
I have started the planning stages of hosting my yearly game night. So far it looks like we will have 10 people coming with 5 tables in action. I should have enough room in the house and this should be a lot of fun.
So I have started thinking about Missions:
I am getting a little bored with the tradition 40K missions and am tempted for us to run the Battle Mission missions. I started looking through the book and think it has some potential but it could be hard. If anyone has some experience with them let me know. We will have some very advanced and junior players at the event so I dont want to make it too complicated but at the same time I want to make it fun for all.
