A Call Out to All Creative Hobbyists!

Recommended Posts

We are searching the forums for creative minds to who might be interested in writing Wyrd articles for (or having their work featured in) the Chronicles. These articles may show all the crazy and amazing crafts that are created by our passionate fans that are Wyrd-inspired. This can be cooking, knitting, art, bases, baking, videos, or anything else you can think of.

If you would like to be considered as a creator for Wyrd Chronicles, then please provide a short summary of what you create as well as a posted pic or link to me via e-mail (Lindsey@wyrd-games.net). I'm looking forward to seeing all your submissions, so get out there and start crafting!

This is the best opportunity to relabel all the liquor I have as moonshine and call it a creative hobby. I might even be lazy as a real Gremlin and relabel all that stuff with just a red pen!

Turning old  liquor bottles into cool custom props is an awesome idea, but I imagine Gremlin moonshine bottles are always empty.

Imagine I live in a world where what you just said makes no sense, and try explaining it to me.

I got bored one day and wrote some computer code that can be used to calculate how good certain models are at doing damage to other models. This is accomplished by programming a deck that works like a normal deck of cards. The computer can then flip hundreds of thousands cards per second to calculate for example the average number of AP it takes an Austringer to kill a Metal Gamin. This method is called Monte Carlo simulation, named after the famous casino in the Principality of Monaco at Monte Carlo.

Any better?

Can I make a brass arachnid plushie just to make Fog jealous?

 

Do you want MATLAB code simulating Malifaux models and decks?

YES WE REALLY DO!!! The more we've got accurate simulators out there, the less time we can spend bonking people on the head for quoting rules of thumb and calling them mathematics.

Hi! Today I'm going to be Mara Lovelace and I'm here to talk about machines that do your thinking for you! ^_^Machines don't speak human, so that's why you can't just tell them what they've got to do. Most of you anyway.

*beams a smug smile, displays Guild badge*

So people invented languages that machines could understand, and one of those is called MATLAB. It's a language for telling machines how to think about mathematics, like the probabilities involved in flipping cards from a fresh full deck and how it's different than flipping cards from a deck after your control hand had been taken out! And now everyone can get the numbers right even if they don't really want to.

This has been Mara Lovelace and today's machine lesson. Remember, machines are awesome and so are people, but don't mix them together in one, or we'll destroy you. Bye!

You should totally do that.

I don't think that's actually going to help people that think that rules of thumb are mathematics to appreciate real mathematics more. I tried to talk one such person on these forums before. I drew him figures and stuff but he just kept insisting that his rules of thumb work just fine and he doesn't need any fancy mathematics, because it doesn't really have anything to offer. We live in times where expertise isn't appreciated and feelings carry the same weight as facts, and I hate it.

... or a small Voodoo Doll. Sammy LaCroix would be happy... REALLY HAPPY!

But Wyrd actually really had voodoo dolls made. I can't do those too. They didn't make any gremlins that I know about, though. Hmm. All my sewing stuff is in storage...

I think that's more human times than these times. What XKCD had to say about the popularity of Mythbusters holds true. Right now evidence based inquiry has got some support it didn't always have.

Well. I appreciate it anyway. I just have to set it aside when making a list, sometimes.

When I get home, I'll snap a pic of my FM's ceramic mug. Maybe this can inspire me to crank out another one... maybe with Shooty and Pokey Viks...

Also, I'm still in talks with my mom about making a legit stain-glass-window of a Malifaux Master for our house. Still deciding on a master though...

Either of these of any interest?

Well this request seems out of left field. What about mini games? Is that crafty enough?

We generally ask for people not to send us game designs since we have our amazing in house team. We are looking for someone that has made something really cool and would be willing to share a "how to" in Chronicles.

Well that's like, your opinion, man :wacko:

 

 

My favourite Malifaux-themed creation so far (for a local tournament):

10/10 would not eat.

 

Unfortunately I have little to offer the party, so I'll go to my shame corner.

Definitely needs a thick BBQ-esque dipping sauce! My wife made some like that for Halloween, but those look far superior (and I'm safe to say that because she doesn't have a login for these forums... yet...)
