[Website Issues] Well Shit…

I have no mouth

It appears that this blogging platform is about to shut down for good meaning I’m going to have to find a new official site for the company.

It could be worse… I have at least got the Facebook pages and I have been meaning to spring clean all the satellite sites down to one but its unfortunate that so many are going to find broken links in my existing products.

I shall keep you all informed of the move (wherever I end up!) and I’ll be sure to archive everything from all of Kittiwake’s blogs.


Miniatures and Postage

So I’ve sold my first miniature and it comes to the point where I have to sort out postage and packaging.

As a gaming consumer myself I really don’t like that little bit extra for postage and packaging however unfortunately to actually make a profit it is a necessity. Thus there will be a postage charge for miniatures dependent on world location.

Even still I can assure you my margin is as small as possible so you can get good gaming products for a reasonable sum.

Thank you for your understanding and feel free to email me any questions.

[Update] Time to Get back into the game!

Too Damn High!
I know, I know damnit!

I’ve been really tardy in getting on with things lately. Though the networking amongst the local gaming community has been useful I’ve been so knackered recently that I haven’t really had the time to get on with things.

However I intend to prioritise the following…

CID: This really needs finishing but I’m kind of stuck on the boring bit (Combat.) It should prove to be a winner and once done it will get me back in the game with a core game that’s NOTHING like anything I’ve done before.

Novel: Again stuck though strangely not on a boring bit. I’ll be sure to give Hattie the utterly insane story she deserves as soon as I can though.

Supplements: I may work on the Courtesans “Monster Manuals” (Eligible Gentlemen and Scandalous Ladies) as having a book chock full of pre-made admirers has obvious advantages.

Card Support: DriveThru Cards has been up for over a year and I still haven’t got round to doing something for it. Currently I’m thinking a “monopoly money” type thing for Courtesans or Doxy with a one use special ability on the filp-side much how the 2GMs 1Mic Crew use cards.

Miniatures: They exist !!!! Seriously though please consider getting one even if only a one off purchase. What I really should do is a new set of painted ones using my new and improved skills.

So once again sorry for my screwed up headspace and all it has done but I hope to be back on form soon.

[Activism/ Film] The Lame Duck Rises

Mr Fowl

Scripts for both film and stage were some of my first writing projects worth a damn so I’ve been thinking of returning to them for a while now. Doubtless many of my regular fans are sick and tired of my various disabled rights posts and wish I would go back to something a bit more creative so I shall.

The Lame Duck Rises shall feature an alternate future version of myself seeking revenge on the ultra-capitalist system that drove him utterly insane. Think of a guy as ruthless as the Punisher, with the sick sense of humour of The Spectre leading an improvised network of highly skilled and equally deranged operatives like Batman.

I’ve got a good opening written up and hope to have a full script soon. If you are in or able to easily get to the Enfield-Southgate area and you are interested in appearing in this film do please get in contact with me via the usual channels.

I have 7 evil Tories, a Newsreader and Mr Fowl’s trusty sidekicks Logic, Rags and Ruin to cast for sure with the possibility of other characters appearing in the story later.

I hope you will support this endeavour and forgive the delay to CID.
