Sat on a boat midway between Shetland and Orkney…
Well okay if truth be known I am nearer Orkney, having left Shetland five and a half hours ago, with twenty minutes to go before getting into harbour. I eventually arrive in Aberdeen at 07.00 tomorrow.
In one of my earlier blog posts I rambled on about never being able to find the stuff I want. Luckily my eagle eyed mate spotted a Starship Troopers game, complete with maps and stand up card figures….
I haven’t a clue what the rules are like, but I want it for its parts. Success! Plus you can’t really complain when you get it for £15 posted.
And as a coincidence…tonight’s onboard entertainment.
So once my mate has finished running his Star Trek RPG we will be joining SICON as the mobile infantry to protect the United Citizens’ Federation.
The campaigns of Pluto await!
I managed to amass all of the available DVD’s relating to Starship Troopers including the original Roughnecks series. Which I liked more than I thought I would.
I am considering getting the graphic novels, but with the DVD collection mentioned above, I reckon I have a fair bit of source material, after I finish with all of the missions and campaigns in the various books.
Tomorrow, I have about one hour to charge around Aberdeen after my meetings before heading back home on the boat again. It seemed like a really good idea at the time to go by boat. Twenty four hours travelling for six hours of meetings. It takes one hour by plane!
Anyway what follows is a a picture of kirkwall in the dark!
