Various ramblings from a veteran gamer who feels like his whole life has been, is now, and probably will continue to be, a three ring circus.

Hellenica: Story of Greece
Anyone who knows me, knows that I love stuff like the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Norse, and all other mythologies.
Now I have a chance to promote what looks like it's going to be a great 4X type game about Ancient Greece - "Hellenica: Story of Greece".
This game will give players the opportunity to be Emperor of Greece!
I've always loved 4x games (BTW: 4X stands for "EXplore, EXpand, EXploit, and EXterminate." starting with the very first edition of Civilization and all the way to the present day.
It's the hundreds, if not thousands, of different ways that a group can act out controlling a civilization!
There's a Kickstarter going on right now (Monday, Sept 03, 2018) that might do the trick.
You have only three days to get involved!
So - what are you waiting for?

I know I'm getting one.....
I currently live in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. It's beautiful, with many walking, hiking, fishing, hunting, and historic possibilities, which I enjoy as often as possible.
I've been married almost 40 years and have one daughter, Amanda, and one cat, Midnight.
I love almost any & all book, movie, and/or TV Science Fiction & Fantasy, especially 'Star Trek' and 'Babylon 5'. You could say I'm a SF&F fanatic. I have over 25,000 SF&F books in my home.
I love Disney animation and consider myself a Disneyphile. I own almost every Disney animated movie, and several live-action Disney favorites. My ultimate dream is to live near Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
I'm the 'original' GURPS GM, and I've been role playing and gaming for more than 40 years. I've played and/or run almost every role playing game known to man. I also enjoy Collectable and Customizable Card Games such as 'Magic the Gathering'. I also game with miniatures and play board wargames.
My Personal Favorites: My favorite book is Jules Verne's '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea'. My favorite movie is 'The Wizard of Oz'. My favorite music is Progressive Rock - and Rick Wakeman and Keith Emerson rule this genre, although more modern bands like 'Spock's Beard' and 'Glass Hammer' are cool, too..
I'm writing a multi-volume fantasy series, and hope to be a published author someday. Any editors out there?
