Just got my copy of the 1.5 Rules!

Going to start slamming ships around shortly.

The arrival of my copy of AV:T late on the 11th was tempered by having to participate in my grandfather's funeral on the 12th.

You might have seen it referred to on the news (especially you Wisconsinites out there), as my grandfather was Frank Zeidler, the Socialist former Mayor of Milwaukee, and one-time Presidential candidate. Not the LAST Socialist Mayor ever, as some news outlets reported, there were two others in the 80's.

Anyway, I'm hoping some fast-paced combat will help to clear my head, as I take this game for a spin...

I'm sorry to hear of your loss.

Suggestion - PLAY the tutorial, don't just read it. (Sorry if I sound like a broken record, but every time I've had someone say the game is too complex, it's because they only read the tutorial, rather than played it.)[/quote]

I intend to; actually, if things work out, I'll be meeting Mr. Leclerq (sp?) IRL this weekend, so I won't be flying solo.

Remember, I played two demos at OddCon a couple years back, so I've already made -- and seen the results of -- certain classic newbie mistakes [OMG I'm sailing off the map stern-first! :shocked:]

And I've persuaded another member of the Shejidan [C.J. CHerryh fan] forum to buy AV:T! "Knuckles" and I might do a play-by-forum-post over there...heh. I'll post an AAR in the appropriate place here if/when that happens.
