E-MAIL/WEB ONLY ISSUE! PDF will be available on the website. We also are being reproduced in Eternal Sunshine.

Web Page Address:

We continue with Kendo Nagasaki, join ANY time, just send me a guess!!!
This issue continues the szine/subszine inversion. As most of you know, this thing began as a ßubszine" to Terry Tallman's North Sealth, West George, then became its own szine with a host of subszines. The subszines remaining will appear as sub-subszines to our new flipflopped home in Doug Kent's Eternal Sunshine. Doug's incessant nagging is not keeping us on schedule, but will make it so we keep going. I'd like to keep writing and doing some game GMing (note that has been expanding). I'm set on the GMing, and I'm starting to write a bit, hope there might be more.
For production, in addition to the HTML's of each separate product on the web page, I will also have a PDF that you can print of the entire subszine (including my famous handdrawn maps!). You can just print the maps if you like, but remember maps are for pikers anyway, you don't need no steenkin' maps, keep them up in your head where they belong.

((For upcoming cons around the world:, but note that some of the Americans have stopped posting the tournaments there. Shame, shame, shame... The Chicago hobby continues on its active track: they had a great CODCon and Weasel Moot is coming up on July 26th and 27th. Although we know that Carnage in Vermont will end off the Nor'Easter sequence of events the first weekend in November, the rest of the year in the Northeast is clarifying slowly. Cheers to Christian Pedone and the Philly crowd for organizing a patriotic July 4-6 Philly Massacre again this year. The website is at, check it out. Rob Premus hasn't said anything about his tournament though either. But expect updates in this space... of course the big upcoming tournament, that I will have to miss, is World DipCon at DixieCon on Memorial Day weekend. Even though I can't make it, you all should go, it is going to be trememdous. More information can be found at:

Enter the Haggis: I have a "present moment" to report, well, March 22, to be specific. Charlotte and I went to a semi-local venue, The Narrows Center in Fall River, for the first time. It's a gorgeous mill setting, with lots of artist relationships and gallery space. is their great website. As some of you know, the bass player for Enter the Haggis is married to our niece, so we kinda know the band and got comped in to the show. It has been a couple of years since we've seen them, so it was fun to see how they've grown. I have been listening a lot to their recorded music... I especially like the 2011 CD "Whitelake" which is their last album before they ramped up the sound a bit. I like loud music just fine, but the current approach (which we saw last month) adds a bit more electric guitar and a bit more rockabilly flavor. The newer "The Modest Revolution" record was funded totally through Kickstarter and has them taking much more control over their career and their work. The other thing that is cool about "The Modest Revolution" is the array of stories in the songs, all motivated by articles in one issue of the Globe and Mail in 2012. They actually did this ahead of time, chose the issue of the newspaper (hey, did they realize newspapers are last century's medium?) and then wrote the songs once they got the issue.
Frankly, it works a bit better on the record than in person where the rock sound masks some of the detail of the stories. The concept of writing songs about whatever was in the paper that day led to some strange choices. The most interesting concept song is the one "Can't Trust the News", about a woman mountainclimber trying to escape difficulties in her life. The hockey song "Blackout" is good and they played it just as most of the Canadian teams were about to lose out of the playoffs. The multi-instrumentalist talent is great here, but (and not sure if Mark is going to read this) I think they would be better off trying to mature through their roots and basically put away trying to be a loud rock band. I love listening to their music more on the CDs, and so can you. So, visit their website and think about picking up "Whitelake" first. I drive a lot, as you all know, so I love "road songs", the great one here, "Headlights", strikes me as pondering this question about whether they want to keep being a rock and roll band or a roots band. There's a great mix of funk (especially "Let Me Go" which really lets it fly) and blues (especially "The Hunter and the Phantom Limb" that tells a great story). They did a bit of acoustic at the end of the show, and it was the best part of the show to me. I of course wish them the best of luck going forward, it always shows that engagement in the rock and roll popularity contest is a big crap shoot, and they're making a new CD now, and I definitely will see them again sometime soon.

This is the latest incarnation of this team based tournament. I am helping to lead the Nor'Easter team for people in the Northeast part of the United States. is the Facebook page for the event.
And you can sign up for the Tournament at: Other US regional teams are the ones in the Pacific, Dixie, and Chicago. Its unique aspect, that continues to be distorting, but in interesting ways, is its "solo only" feature. You advance from the preliminaries to the finals only by soloing, and then need solos in the finals against the other soloists. Though this started last January, it probably will be going on for at least another year, and there is PLENTY of time to jump in. As usual, for those who know me well, I screwed up my first game and allowed a solo to someone from team US. And then I could have soloed the second game, but well, I can't exactly say how I did it, but the Canadian player soloed there, with help from me. I still don't have a solo in over three decades, and now I'm waiting for my next game to start, you can join and get more games going!!! You can easily throw games, and in this format you can do it. I wonder why people like to drop the levels of the game in this way. It fascinates me. But in the finals of this tournament, it shouldn't happen, should it? The rules for the finals have been tweaked and the finals should start any day now. But you still can join the qualifiers, openings are there now!!!

Jim, I can't believe that UCONN won the National Championship! ((Men's... I was rooting for Florida, but I ended up being happy with Shabazz and their team, great to watch, interesting how it took them so long in the season to put it together)) My worst nightmare! Of course, I'm no fan of Kentucky either. I told my son I couldn't watch unless someone could come up with a scenario where neither team won. Certainly SU had a disappointing end to the season. Their lack of offense finally caught up with them. If they could have made just one single 3 point shot they would have beaten Dayton and made the Sweet 16, but they only made one jump shot the whole game! It was hard to watch. All in all though it was the most enjoyable season since 2003. There were so many exciting games and big wins in the Dome. Hopefully Grant returns next year. Given that he hasn't announced yet, I'm being optimistic. ((Jerami Grant since has said he will enter the draft, wonder if he would be a guy the Celtics would be interested in with their late first round pick??))
UCONN is about to play ND for the women's title as I write this. I have more interest in this game than I did last night's. Given that Brianna Stewart is from Syracuse and I watched her play in high school a couple of times I'll actually be cheering for UCONN. Hopefully the game lives up to the hype - two undefeated teams who hate each other playing for the National Championship!
Drew, karelanddrew of
((And of course it was the dual National Championships. UConn really didn't let it get close. I always have been a fan of the UConn women's team, going way, way, way back, so I was pleased. Though I don't really pay as much attention to them as I did in the 1990's. I started out paying attention to women's basketball when Connecticut native Tracy Lis came here to Providence, and set the then Big East scoring record. But then I grew to like Auriemma's coaching style and became a UConn women's fan about 20 years ago. It's amazing that UConn now has done this twice!!! Next up, we have our baseball commentaries for this year, finishing with mine. A little sparse....))

First day of baseball is here right now, for me. I just got home from taking the dog for a walk in a park that has little league fields, and there was a swarm of itty bitty kids in uniforms, playing Tee-Ball and hitting against a pitching machine. Memories of watching my own kids 25+ years ago. So, bring on baseball; I'm ready!

I won't make any predictions for this BB year beyond saying that my Cubs will be 71-91 this year, since that's about all I've had a chance to follow this year.   So my team went 0-for-11 with RISP yesterday, and lost 1-0 on a walk-off HR in the 10th.  How are you guys doing?
Goz, warrengoesle of

David Partridge (Tue, 1 Apr 2014 20:52:57 -0700 (PDT))
Lost 2-1 with the tying run on 2nd.   Coaching decisions being second guessed already.  All is normal.
Dave, rebhuhn of
((The Red Sox have gotten off to a very messy start, and already they've arguably been the most screwed by this silly instant replay rule. They has a bang-bang first base call play overturned against them! What the heck's with that? Umpires judge that by the SOUND of the ball in the glove, and replay doesn't do it with linked sound. This is a travesty so far, another thing we can blame Bud Selig for! I hope they fix it. Replay, IF they're going to use it needs to be for "big obvious mistakes" not close plays on the basepaths.))
((Now, my picks. The base picks were published before the season started in Eternal Sunshine and I'm just fleshing them out.
AL East: Boston, Tampa Bay (Wild Card), New York, Baltimore, Toronto. The Red Sox will take a while to get their offense in gear, but they have the pitching and in the long run, pitching wills out. I really thought the Yankees would be a disaster and climb back up later, we will note that is NOT the way things are starting out. If the Yankees really do have the best pitching in the division, help!!! The Red Sox statistically DO have the best bullpen pitching so far, and that's going to hold up, since they still don't have everyone healthy.
AL Central: Kansas City, Detroit (Wild Card), Cleveland, Chicago, Minnesota. Yuck, I'm agreeing mostly with Doug? Not on KC, I think they break out this year and take the division. These young teams do this before they know what hit them. The Tigers are old and slow and vulnerable. Cleveland isn't as good as they could be, but mid-season moves could move them up.
AL West: Oakland, Texas, Los Angeles, Seattle, Houston. This division could be any which way, except that Houston is still bad, very bad. And I don't see how Seattle makes it all work, and Cano hasn't done anything yet.
NL East: Washington, Atlanta (Wild Card), New York, Philadelphia, Miami. I really like Atlanta, but Washington seems like it really is going to succeed this time. I think Philadelphia is going to come back a bit.
NL Central: St. Louis, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Milwaukee, Chicago. The Cubs ARE still a disaster, I think Cincinnati is a bit better than others do. I don't think Pittsburgh is going to succeed enough to be a Wild Card.
NL West: Los Angeles, San Francisco (Wild Card), San Diego, Arizona, Colorado. I hate the Dodgers, but they WILL likely win enough to be the division winner. I think San Diego is going to have a great season, will my Giants hold them off? I say yes, but am I confident? No.
Playoffs: I think Boston will repeat and beat LA, at least that's what I want to happen...
Awards and Such: I like Mike Trout and Chris Sale for the individual awards in the AL, not sure enough about NL players to say. Only that Bryce Harper is a fraud.))

I am continuing to note cut or failed support orders with a small "s" instead of a capital "S". This will make it easier on the E-Mailed version of the szine to see what happened, since the italics don't show there. The italics DO show on the web page just fine. Since I'm not postal mailing the szine any more, I've dropped back to just reporting the disguised E-Mail addresses. As someone notes, if you need some more contact information, go back to past issues or ask me.
Standby lists:
Dick Martin, Brad Wilson, Jack McHugh, Glenn Petroski, Steve Emmert, Mark Kinney, Vince Lutterbie, Eric Brosius, Paul Rauterberg, Bob Osuch, Doug Kent, Sean O'Donnell, Heath Gardner, Paul Kenny, and Jeff O'Donnell stand by for regular Diplomacy. Let me know if you want on or off these lists, especially OFF given the new policies.

I'm going to start the game opening list over. Under the new regime, who wants to play what?
DIPLOMACY: The Regular Diplomacy game has started. I would love to run Spy Diplomacy again some time, any interest in that? Something else?? Another Regular Diplomacy game? Maybe I'll just show you all that I can stay on schedule for awhile.
SPY DIPLOMACY: Heath Gardner, need six more.

Game Notes:
1) I think I do have a call for a unanimous and anonymous vote with your Spring orders for skipping a Summer press season if there are no retreats. If there are retreats, there will be a separate Summer season, unless everyone submits orders going ahead. If my policies on this are unclear, please ask. If you fail to vote on the "no separate summer" question, it is assumed to be default to my standard separation, unless everyone submits orders to go ahead. Note, that we HAVE a summer retreat this time. We'll take it unless I have unanimous approval and orders in from everyone.
2) I strongly encourage Summer press. Our press deserted us this time, but I will reprint the last part of our on-going story anyway.

(JIM-BOB to THE GAME): There are a number of press series going on, and for one of them, the one named PoD, I have been asked to continue to reprise the last episode, in this case Part 12, to lead off this issue, this may help people read and follow it better.
(PRINCE of DARKNESS, PART 12): The Gypsy Wife was not Albanian but had adopted the country years ago. Her pronounced accent was a jumble of tongues that hinted of many influences and, as such, was uniquely unplaceable. Maybe she had originally come from Bohemia, or maybe Sardinia or Cypress, perhaps from the Basque country or Armenia. She alluded to them all in her history. It didn't matter to her, she said, as her people had not been accepted anywhere in Europe for more than ten centuries. All lands were inhospitable to those who didn't belong. The music in the other room spoke of that loneliness and alienation. Albania, with its own tradition of not belonging, was not welcoming to the gypsies she said, only less hostile than the rest of Europe.
Sometime in the past she had become owner of The Threshing Floor. The Threshing Floor was a hard-bitten tavern favored by the local criminal element, assorted dark figures, and few others. The tavern was now enmeshed in the mass of mean buildings that were Korce, but centuries ago had stood alone near the old city walls before the town had moodily crowded in around it. It was dark even by tavern standards and larger than any of its competitors. Generations ago it had been a barn, or a granary maybe. One story had it the Gypsy Wife had won The Floor in a duel with knives. Another rumor was that she'd terrified the previous owner with baleful readings from her tarot deck. A third was that it had always been in gypsy hands and she was only the current keeper. It didn't matter. Nothing in The Threshing Floor happened without her knowledge and forbearance. Most patrons came to the tavern for drink and gossip, both of which flowed freely. Cards, dice, and other games of chance were also a draw. Others came to conduct quiet business of a less than legal nature. I was here for none of these. I'd come for information.
I'd met Lila by chance in Constantinople years ago at the top of the Galatian Tower in the eastern part of the city. We were both pursuing a Fourth Worlder known as the Al'Harradan baq-El, a brutal killer and blackmailer from Syria. My client had been the wealthy family of one of his victims, hers a Romani chief in eastern Turkey. I'd needed him alive and had chased him to the Tower after an extended search through the Levant. Her client wasn't as picky and she'd accomplished her mission when Al'Harridan baq-El met his end at her hands with a fall from the top of the Tower. Defenestration. Messy. Effective. After some tense negotiation she’d allowed me to take the body to my clients after proving to the gypsy lord he'd been neutralized. It was an uncomfortable accommodation. We'd both benefited.

Game Notes:
1) The rules are on the TAP website in the Tinamou section. Ask if you have any questions. Rules at:
Up above in parentheses is the card you played to get to where you are in the field. The replenishment card is the last card in your list. Be careful to note that the card you played (the one in parentheses) is not available for you, for next turn. Just for fun, I keep track of total replenishment, by turn, which is a rough measure of how the teams are doing. Of course, it is lining up to get across the sprint (40/80) and final (120) lines in the right places that really counts. We can calculate an "efficiency score" later, which will be the ratio of scoring points per replenishment. If I'm predicting how the future of this will come out based on doing this before, about half the players will get scores below 5% and getting better than a 10% score will be really tremendous for this measure.
2) Most of the First Sprint Points are claimed, but two more slots will earn points for the next two riders to cross.

(BOOB to RIDERS): But no press...
