In my younger days each St. Patrick's Day we would make the trek to McSorley's in Manhattan for a good bout of carousing and singing off key. In later young adulthood the trek was facilitated by my clever acquisition of employment in mid town. I could get paid for a days work and then walk a few blocks to meet up with the lads* : )
As is the way of things, and as Bocephus so aptly put it, "All my rowdy friends have settled down". And of course this is a good thing. Still looking back as one does on occasion, and prepping for a game this weekend, I present to you Black 47.
Do not know if McSorley's would ever countenance such a musical mix but its good music to prepare a game by and reminds me of my boyhood.
With St. Patrick's Day only a few days away I'm feverishly making preparations for Wolfe Toon's landing at Bantam Bay in Guinalea. This will be a modified version of Charles Grant's Expeditionary Force campaign from Programmed Scenarios for Wargames.
Although at some level Giggers will be there representing the forces of the Crown, I will be playing as the Guinalean/Ferach Elves. As the aggressors in this case I think they have the harder job besides who wouldn't want to lead a force of Elves, Bog Orcs, and Wee Folk led by a Werewolf?

Well that's all for now. Enjoy your day!
*That was just a coincidence and I fled city life as soon as I was able.
