Welcome!

Oh, I'm so going to have to change that...

Continue for the scribblings of a slightly (many will beg to differ) mad Englishman with an overactive imagination and nothing to lose (well, not much).

If you get stuck in the quicksand that is the insides of my head, good! Stay there and bask in the euphoria of my insanity.

(Yeesh, sorry, that sounds a bit flat, doesn't it?) Anyway, I hope some of you will be able to immerse yourself in the rubbish that I post.

Bye for now,

Imperator: Iberia

... is already half-written it seems... most of the core story's down on the page, just need to put it into a coherent order and tie everything in. And new character: Artemis, who's a wolf... just need to find more characters I can kill off... -_-

Anyway, watching Suisei no Gargantia, which is looking pretty good so far... pity it's only 12 episodes long... like all the good series that have been released lately.

Ah well...

Quicker than I thought...

So... let's see where this takes me...

*pling*

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Italia-Imperator-ebook/dp/B00C4269FC/ref=sr_1_18?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1364684999&sr=1-18

Waiting... waiting...

The twelve hours that won't go quick enough...

Never mind... on to part 2: Iberia.

Lost count of how much I've written for it, but it looks as though I'm going to have re-write all the conversations between Polybius & Laelius... they were done way before I decided to have the historian narrate in present tense. *grumble*

Perhaps I should go onto that weird new project I've got going on... into which I've managed to weave the 'magnum opus' universe. *shrug* Might do it just to get my mind of SPW for a while. Not that I'd ever get tired of it.

Oh, and... is it me or is Assassin's Creed 3 a rather sparse and boring game? Still going to finish it, but probably won't ever replay it... need to get onto The Witcher 2 at some point... and Bioshock Infinite... -_-

Four hours... maybe less... -_-

So, from the blurb:

" Publius Cornelius Scipio Africanus: a name that is forever inscribed into the annals of Roman history – brother to Scipio Asiaticus, grandfather to Scipio Aemilianus, victor over Hannibal Barca and a hallowed name among the greatest heroes and consuls of Rome. There is no doubt that he was the greatest soldier born to Rome in a time when she better looked to without to see her enemies than to within. But wherever Africanus went during the nine years of his stellar career in the western Mediterranean and more, be in no doubt that one Gaius Laelius went also. This is the little known and almost untold story of the man born with neither name nor fortune, nor influence nor prestige who became Consul of Rome and companion to history’s first 'Imperator'.

Italia – Hannibal invaded the hinterlands of the Roman Republic, marking the start of the Second Punic War. He remained undefeated in the years of conflict on Italian soil. Thus, many were the frustrations of the sons of Rome who could do little to change the Fortunes of their nation. They could but trust in Publius’ father and uncle, who remained the only long victorious forces in this war, in far off Iberia. Yet, Publius saw his opportunity to take the war to Carthage and her allies, but at what cost did he pay to have Fortune look well upon him? And how could Gaius be of help to his best friend, when he was not and could not be either common or knightly? "

Cheesy? Eh... it's all, more or less, true, I guess...

Deadline...

Well... schedule dictates less than a day to go... and must... stop... editing... :/

Imperator: Italia will go on 'sale' Saturday 30th March, yet someone must come along to kick my inner pessimist...

Thinking of other things... Girls und Panzer finally finished this week, and I've been repeatedly watching the Black Forest final match... ¬_¬ And I think my comments on Escapist rather make clear my sentiments... don't think I'll reiterate them here otherwise I'll wax lyrical about it indefinitely...

The steampunk idea just doesn't stop growing... I'm rating ships and designing artillery pieces now (not how they look, how the firing mechanism works & how they can misfire(!))... *hrk*

Anyway, IMDG course starting soon... or whenever I can feel like it (work related stuff that I've been trying to get going for a while... finally can). Things moving... after a fashion...

Ah, Mes Travailles...

The GPU on my PC has died... so waiting on its replacement...

Haven't written much lately, except for a freaking new idea... steampunk Enlightenment Europe! Woohoo! ¬_¬

Concepts down for a series of at least twelve, so I must be rather nuts at the moment to think I can get that much research & material down on the page. *hrk*

In different news, pretty much done with a first full draft of Imperator: Italia... just one conversation to complete and a long month or three of editing... pray for nameless me, nameless folks... -_-

Oh... the pain...

Chapter 18... half done... not sure how long it's going to end up, but... eh... still, 215 came and went quite quickly, and 214 is going just as quickly, think only a couple chapters for each year. Need more elections to keep it/me 'sane'... -_-

Ah well...

On a lighter note...

Bring on the Tiger I's! -_- Won't appear for a few episodes yet, but never mind.
