Back to literature This time it's the turn of Antonia S. Byatt, English poet, novelist and Booker Prize winner in 1990 for the marvellous novel Possession (read, read, read, it's a total masterpiece, intertwining the study of medieval classics with a sort of "crime" story, i.e. two university researchers discover a secret liason between two authors of the past and by their letters, they reconstruct a whole different story, but clearly it's so much more than that). She's an avangardist, someone who re-invented literature in the 20th century and a huge love of mine. In particular, I'd recommend reading her short story, "The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye", where arabian nights fairytale, modern shortstory and Chaucer mix together in something that's possibly the best short story I've read so far (people not having the time to read but curious, feel free to GM me)

Also, reading her short novel Ragnarok changed my life forever

So, please, an MB celebrating this awesome writer! Source: Google (a couple of images are particularly neat I think: the one where she bends her right hand on her chin)

Mouseover: "What literature can and should do is change the people who teach the people who don't read the books"

And of course if you feel like trying a badge for "Possession" or "The Djinn" and you have ideas (even from the cover of the books), I'm more than happy to support you

PS: if you're curious of the game chosen as entry, another of her novels was named "The Virgin in the Garden"

PS2: if someone's curious to read a snip of Possession (spoiler free), here we go:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
“What is it my dear?"

"Ah, how can we bear it?"

"Bear what?"

"This. For so short a time. How can we sleep this time away?"

"We can be quiet together, and pretend - since it is only the beginning - that we have all the time in the world."

"And every day we shall have less. And then none."

"Would you rather, therefore, have had nothing at all?"

"No. This is where I have always been coming to. Since my time began. And when I go away from here, this will be the mid-point, to which everything ran, before, and from which everything will run. But now, my love, we are here, we are now, and those other times are running elsewhere.”

Our PBEM game continues. My Holy Romans are besieging Ravenna. Five dice, rolled 1, 1, 1, 2, 2. And that wasn't even the vassal dice roller but ACTS.

Haven't even gotten my copy of Here I Stand to the table but I can really only get 2 other dedicated players into one of these games. Reformation is a great setting but does Virgin Queen edge out the original?

What's it going to be then, eh?
mbmbmbmbmb
The sequel to Here I Stand but one I am quite a bit more interested in as a multi-player wargame (of sorts). It seems to be a good game that keeps all players interested through its considerable play time. Again, I am afraid this will be a hard sell to my group, the complexity isn't an issue the length is what makes it the tough sell.

I really wanted to own Here I Stand but it was out of print. Then I read that this was a sequel and new I had to buy it. After picking up a copy I watched a couple of youtube videos and then read the comments. There were concerns about the number of players needed. I should have learned more about the game as my group is small and when we get together it is usually only one or two of us. We talked about how many people were needed to play and we just set it aside. I still intend on taking it out one day, but right now we play other games.

Vassal PBEM; I am the Holy Roman Empire (as such, neither Holy nor Roman, though I do aspire to Empirehood). First turn was quiet, but much naval combat broke out in the Atlantic in the second turn, to England's disadvantage. Spain is looking very strong at the moment. Third turn should be interesting...
