General Discussion / PAX Prime 2016 MiniOmegathon Geek Quiz
« on: August 30, 2016, 11:53:21 PM »

I do this every year, this year I turned it into a google form because I'm arriving at PAX last minute and don't have time to proctor the quiz in person as I usually do.

Anyhoo, take this at your leisure.  I'll grade them all after PAX.  (so, next tuesday)

It's the fly free week, but entering the code lets backers fly the ships too...

Star Citizen / CR Interview, More Details

General Discussion / Best. Freezer. Ever.
« on: July 30, 2016, 06:06:40 PM »

Bought a used freezer for $80... 'cause new ones seem far too expensive.  Mrs. Thranx was like "meh, doesn't look like it's worth $80"  so... I spent another $80 on paint and BAM... 'MERICA.  Nothin' more American than a freezer ful of half a steer.

General Discussion / [Side Quest] Starbound Launch Day
« on: July 21, 2016, 03:55:17 PM »

1.0? Release? Completed?  Oh early access, what a wishy-washy world you've created.  Whatever you want to call it, tomorrow is it for Starbound, so lets get together and play on a fresh new server.  Hop on TeamSpeak, connect to the server ( and have a fantastic time with your fellow Guardians.  Haven't played it? Awesome, please join, you'll learn with many of us.  Have the first 5 tiers of progression tool material quantities memorized?  You're crazy... but come anyways,  we could use that knowledge.  It's a large time window, pop in for any or all of it, and if you can't hang out that night, join any time in the following days.

Just have a fun evening with fellow Guardians and if you enjoy it, continue on into the following days and weeks.  The server will be up as long as people are interested.

When: 7/22 @ 4P/7E - 10P/1E
Where: TeamSpeak
Password:--same as teamspeak--

Other Games and Interests / Prospective Games List
« on: July 21, 2016, 02:47:16 PM »
This is a simple list of MMOs that I (and by extension, The Council) am keeping an eye on for future Divisions or Squads.  Many things go into creating a successful org, and so many of these may not come to be, but here is a small list of what I'm keeping an eye on should the members be interested and the game itself end up proving to be a worthy endeavor.

With all games, we need passionate leaders willing to put forth the time and effort to lead the way for TG in these games.  If that is something you're interested in, please contact myself (the DoD), the GL and the AGL.

Camelot Unchained
Planned Release - 2017...*shrug*
Member Interest - Medium
Development Trend - Flat
Interest Trend - Flat
TG Development Status - The game design and goals look like something we'd want to be up on, but we'll need to see more and see an uptick in member interest to be sure, closer to release.

Planned Release - 2017 if they're lucky
Member Interest - High
Development Trend - Down
Interest Trend - Down
TG Development Status - At this point (7/21/16), I assume we will have some organization in Crowfall, but the pace of game development tells me it will be quite a while before we take that step.
