If You Could Have Your Own Squig, What Would You Call It? I have 16 of them and they represent my Goblin Bloodbowl Team, but my favourite would have ot be George (I’ll hug him and squeeze him and call him George
If You Could Make A Game Related To A Film/Book/Genre What Would It be? Difficult to answer considering there are many High Fantasy Games out there already like AoS, 9th Age, Kings of War but I love the Memory,Sorrow and Thorn Trilogy of Books by Tad Williams (Dragonbone Chair, Stone of Farwell and To Green Angel Tower)

“Build me an army worthy of Mordor!”
“Meh! Alright” replied Dodd.
