So it’s been a while since we saw many posts on Wyrd games here on Westgamer. The truth is Malifaux needed a new edition and getting to that edition took over a year. It also took a concerted effort by many henchmen worldwide including our own local talent to playtest and to contribute to the great games that have emerged this year.
The good news is that Malifaux has emerged so much stronger in this edition, so much easier to play, and just as tactically challenging. With Wyrd converting to plastics and releasing some other great games, and this month an RPG, it's an exciting time.
It's also true to say that Wyrd also did a superb job of creating central sites and that they are bursting with new content. The problem is this just doesn’t get the message out there in the local community. Both nationally and internationally there is some stunning stuff going on, but unless you know where to look, you'd miss it.
Ultimate Wyrdness then is a trawl of the interwebz, the twitterverse and of course good old Facebook, to show you what Wyrd is all about. I'll post up weekly what catches my eye, as will the other Henchman, but don't be afraid to post up your findings, you own efforts, or any cool thoughts or questions.
There's three of us now actively Henching here in WA, as far as I know, Rathnard, One Second Of Insanity and myself. I won't pretend to be the most knowledgeable of the three, but if ever you want to take the game for a spin, then please do not hesitate to PM us or post in this forum. The nearest Henchman will answer the call for local games/demos and we'll chime in on our favorite subject!
