Happy New Year from the Grand Duchy of Stollen. . .
Well, here we are. Almost two decades into the 21st century. It seems like just yesterday that everyone was filled with anxiety about Y2K during the final weeks of the 20th century, and the apparent threat of our toasters and coffee makers taking over in a Terminator-like coup during the night of December 31st, 1999-January 1st, 2000. I was living in Norway at the time, and, contrary to expectation, my trusty worldband radio, a Sony ICF2010 failed to take the opportunity to take me out while I slept. And, as I say, here we are in 2017. May your new year be filled with interesting reading about your chosen campaigns (real or imagined), the occasional game of toy soldiers, painting, collecting, and daydreaming about future tabletop exploits.
