Spanky, What Are You Smoking?

Okay, I tried moving Spanky the Wonder Scale downstairs to what should have been a flatter, more stable, and therefore more reliable surface, and he glomped onto the value of "286.5 lbs., 43% bodyfat." I've been 286 lbs. before, and I know that this ain't it.

This is really beginning to irritate me ... it may be time to show Spanky the door. It's like having a ruler made of super-stretch elastic ... you can only guess how right or wrong any measurement it makes is.

Okay, Mage Knight, You Win

Push the right buttons, and I'm all yours, apparently. Yesterday, I bought my first ever Mage Knight booster pack -- from the "Pyramid" set.

Between jamesbarrett and myself, we have a ton of Mage Knight figs, bought in bulk at Dragon*Con last year because they ranged from $0.25 to $1.50 each and we could pick exactly the ones we wanted. We didn't buy them to play Mage Knight with, mind you -- we bought them for D&D, and they've been a very valuable investment.

The set I bought yesterday, I bought just because the "Pyramid" line looks so damn cool. And, true enough, the figs I got were very cool indeed. I've already come up with a sinister and evil way to use them once we start gaming again.

praeriedog gave me the D.C. Comics Heroclix starter set for Christmas; I assume the Mage Knight rules are comparable if not identical. So maybe one of these days I'll break down and actually play a game of Mage Knight.
