PostSubject: Ram Rock Ed First bids you all Greetings!   Mon 15 Dec 2008 - 9:15

Greetings fellow depraved citizens of that most fell city Mordheim! I have found my way here finally and I see PB is here too!

For those who do not know me, I am Ram Rock ed First. I first amde a name for myself in the international Mordheim Community via the original SG Mordheim boards where I was considered a most phenomenally fast and huge poster. Though on further examination Kawarda_Shadowweaver was beating me ever so slightly. Still 900 odd posts in 3 months was epic and damned cool. Forum wise I have opened threads such as The Ye Olde World Amazing Race which was basically a Mordheim adaptation to The Amazing Race told in a story format after being played out and never quite got to the end of the first race leg (despite having 2 legs completed in notes), as well as being one of the original creators of The Mordheim Snotling Warband. The final updated list is written by me after various feedback and playtestingf rom the SG Forums over the past few years and several incarnations. The final one has yet to be playtested through the final runs of it all and once done and confirmed it is balanced will be winging it into a new issue of The Letters of the Damned.

I have played most warbands from the core book, 2002 Annual, and Empire in Flames as well as several others froma round about. I specialise in small elitist warbands, and know how to run a 3 elf shadow elf warband damned effectively (current, or rather last list of them has 3 elves all maxed {now witha baby griffin!} fighting the same skaven opponent the entirety of the games were against and winning 50% of the time against an opponent with 18-21 guys verse your 3 is fun and damned challengeing, though we use NO march blockinga s it doesn't make sense to us). However, I also run Orcs pretty well and always seem to surprise people when youc amp down with 15 Orc boyz all with bows or crossbows and annihilate an opponent at range rather then engaging up close and personnal asap. lol. Small things give you nice advantages here and there, lol.

The last major campaign I played in was Pancreas Boy's one in 2006, where I got the titled award of The Cheesemaker - not so much for power gaming IMHO, more because I was facing opponents who had played a 30 campaign turn campaign previously and taken 1 or 2 characters from those campaigns into it and then were 10 campaign turns ahead of me with the new warbands and I threw ALL my eggs into one basket. it worked a charm though I also had to start a new warband about turn 20, lol.

Other then that been playing on and off throughout the years, always happy to help out and answer any questions people may have.

Cheers and have a great day,

Ram Rock Ed First.

P.S. Does anyone have the link to wherever the new SG Mordheim boards were? there are threads that should have been transferred across I don't think I have typed back ups to which will really blow arse (as in donkey) if I can't recover them.

I posted here and there on the SG forums, but been busy at university this past semester so not much time on the painting/modelling/gaming front. Been on summer break for 3 weeks almost now and I've been gaming (all sorts - online/tabletop/CCG's/Board) almost every day since. Yep, had to fill in the need and the gap.

How's everyone doing anyways? And if the above post introduction sounds a bit arrogant It was posted close on 3am in the morning, this is 3:52am and this is usually the time where I don't hold back in opinions which equally gets me WIN points and equally gets me in trouble. In short, this time of the morning I'm as honest as I'll ever be,w hich is amusing, but i also rant like nothing as I am doing now. Smile

I noticed Xander and some of the chaps from the Chaos dwarfs Online Forums are here and have their Black dwarfs band in the BTB supplement I shall have to dl and read at a later point soon. That's funky, my username on those boards is Auretious Taak. I changed to a second username here and there for variety just to see also, though it is annoying having to explain you're Ram Rock eD first ina Mordheim/gaming (online MMO) context to some people also.

Cheers lads,

Ram.

I don't know, this is my 21st post in less then 24 hours of joining, you might be onto something here PB!

See, as soon as I figure out how to take photo's, load them to my computer and then host them to say photobucket and post them on here, then we'll see the place go to town! Wink

I really should get my brother's expanded experience tract warband roster and get that posted up here or to LotD as it really is quite epic going to 180 exp in a campaign. Smile

So...warband suggestions. Something Human. Any ideas for something you want to see done people? Fire away the ideas and I'll work on something gradually in some spare time. Smile

Also hey MyLittlePwny, good to see you here also.

Cheers all and have a great day,

Luke.

P.S. I was editing this for some reason and was distracted by an Elephant Voices update...

That hesitation made me smile DeafNala. Cheers for the welcome.

To other "newbies" to this forum, just to clarrify Tom is not the Tom who also owns red Claw Gaming and runs by the username of Brahm Tazoul. Tom, the Tom of this board is from Austria rather then Canada. Just thought I'd point this out as I asked because I knew Tom had a Forum somewhere and I wasn't sure.

So am I allowed Non-GW product up on these boards or not?

Luke.

Oh look I forgot I had posted there!

This is sweet, ahve a nice and simple Reaper conversion I have blue tacked up that looks actually quite sweet and will make a nice fully armoured leader, possibly a Marauder though not read the rules so unsure there just yet.

Anywhere on the forum you'd suggest we have a gander at cianty seeing as you seem to be beating everyone with posts (Though I'm fast approaching the top 50 and it's still been less then 24 hours haha! :p) and surely must know something I don't! Wink

Cheers and thanks for the response.

Luke.

P.S. I decided to hell with it, I'll just sign off with my actual name, call me what you want it doesn't bother me, and the large amount of overlap between here and Chaos Dwarfs online is annoyingas they know me as Auretious Taak there and NOT Ram Rock Ed First, lol. Maybe I should open another account here just to avoid confusion lol. Have whole conversations arguing to myself, heh.

That's why I use my real name for everything, though on reflection I should have used my full name; 'cos it's cool (Chad-Nadir Greenberg).

Yes but Chad, real names like Luke are usually taken. And having a more established username of Ram Rock Ed First that is at once unique and not hard to recognise is useful, but changing it here and there is likely where I fell flat on my face, but it doesn't matter too much.

A mate of mine from Dead Frontier (www.deadfrontier.com) going by the username of Captain Awesome, well he and I call each other by the names WE would call ourselves if we had the chance (not changing our names legally anytime soon either Wink). Mine would be Balthazar Von Lictenstein and his would be Baron Von Bob Jerhavowitz. What would you call yourself Chad? And anyone for that matter?

What could possibly be better than Chad-Nadir Greenberg!?!?! And I wouldn't give myself a title in case I actually get a real one. Wink (Remember, I'm English, and it's (sort-of) possible for me to become a knight or an earl for real. I can dream, can't I?)

I was not aware of short term degrees, this is amusing.

I'm doinga BA of Science majoring in Animal Behaviour. Yup, I want to study African Elephant Communication, but in the meantime, doping up Honey bees on Cocaine and observing their behavioural responses has had me in stitches as I've helped with that work. Smile

Yeah, over in UK their like part time degrees but condensed into short extreme periods, so a year long course could be 6 months but its very heavy in the work load. not sure wht you would call them over there.

My grandad managed it because some of them are honourary (if you do something really impressive in a certain field then a Uni' might just give a degree for nothing). I'm doing a degree with the OU (Open University), and you can choose how heavy your workload is (a few people have managed a degree in 18 months, from scratch!). Also, the OU let you start without doing any other exams (so I started at 15, before I was GCSE age, yes, I'm now boasting. Wink ).

GCSE Age? Different system here in Australia.

Intriguing, in any case I got my results back and I didn't fail anything and even popped a distinction! (Had a REALLY bad last semester). Hmmm I am considwering pinching half of Long Drong's Slayer Pirates that I brought my brother for Christmas along with the classic Drunken Dwarfs...thoughts here? :p

So what do these condensed degrees involve assessment wise anyways?

Cheers and have a great day,

Luke.

With the OU it's eTMAs (electronic Tutor Marked Assesments) about once a mont, and your mark is divided by ten and that's how many points you get. So after a nine month course you've done around ten eTMAs (sometimes it's not ten, and you get 15-20 percent of your score on each TMA) and all your little scores are added together to get an average that's your score. If you got a pass result (over 45%) you get certain number of points towards a degree (9 months gets you 60 points) and when you have 360 points in history related courses you get a degree! And you get a first, second or third depending on how well you performed in your TMAs (so their's a billion chances to mess up). Only 230 points to go! wippeee! Sad
