Kevin Duke will be leaving active involvement in Lost Battalion's marketing, promotions, and consulting duties to allow for greater focus on other professional areas.

He is not leaving the universe though, and we may see him working with us at conventions someplace, bringing more of those photos of players and good times to light. (And he says he still hopes to meet many people who have become very familiar names.)

Further, he will continue to work with Jeff on a game design for LBG, that takes some SMG mechanics into a new ball park, but one which could tie back directly with SMG in the future.

Good luck to both LBGs and to Kevin!

Best wishes to Kevin and LBG and SMG players everywhere.

Hopefully someone (or two or three) can take over spearheading QnA for players.

Good Luck to Kevin.

I hope he will still be an active member of the SMG community.

Thank for the update. That just means you're going to have to spend more time on these forums answering questions at the designer level.

I don't doubt Kevin's grognard bonafides, but it will only help SMG to have a more friendly and accommodating public face to handle the rah-rah marketing PR around these boards.
I'm sure there are people already here who would jump at the opportunity to do it.

Like YOU maybe?

Jump away.

I had to think about it, since you don't post much, but I remember a couple of your posts that were like, way-wrong and kduke corrected your mistake. I thought he was gentle about it, but i'm not very gentle myself.
Looks like you never forgot and here you are with a parting shot (at his back).

Yeah, you'll be good working directly with Lost battalion and fielding questions and complaints for them.



Anyone else have any horror stories about how not 'friendly and accommodating' duke was?

Lets keep this thread positive. At times, Kevin has been an extremely helpful and hard working guy who performed a valuable service to the community here. I wish you luck in the future Kevin and hope you stick around in a less than official capacity.

I would think that working for a small, family owned company, that is based in greater Baltimore while acting as the Marketing person based in middle America, and not being a member of that family, could be very challenging at best. Kevin has done an excellent job IMHO.

I edited my post as upon reflection that seemed rude to mention, sorry about that.

I just joined the SMG Circus and Kevin was very patient in explaining to me what was what.

Best wishes, Kevin, and I hope we can link up somewhere for a game.

Good luck Kevin I'm sure we will continue to hear plenty from you. It's a hobby right not just a job?

Your patience always amazes me. I would be telling people to read the rules when they post a question that is either very clear in the rules or has been asked and answered several times already in other threads.

Cheers
D.

ps If I have been guilty of the above it's because as a customer I expect the world to be just right and revolve around my needs. And how come you don't know everything anyway? whistle

Good Luck Kevin for the New Year and your future projects.

Thank you for everything you have contributed to these forums on behalf of myself. I have found you to be the number one fan of the game system and have always gone out of your way to find responses to the many questions/gripes that appear on these pages.

You will be missed.

Gordon
