Black Templars 101...
Is going to be down for the foreseeable future. Its obsolete anyway. As I complete the new sections, I'll release them live once again. Thank you for your patience and understanding. And I hope you enjoy the updated versions! :D
Its been a while...
Long time, no see everyone. Over a month since my last post, but yet I'm still getting emails and several thousand hits a day. I'm extremely surprised by that last. To be honest, I was burned out. Not from playing the game, I love 40k. Though, I'll admit, I've not had the time to play either. But it was mostly the pressure of feeling like I had to keep up putting out the content that I was. That I had to maintain, update, and provide new stuff for everyone on a regular basis. That I had to answer the equivalent of dozens of emails a day. Time was non-existent for me for about 9 months prior to my month "LOA", which complicated some IRL things I needed to deal with. The defeatist attitude many of my brethren have kind of brought me down as well. It was a view that I simply did not agree with. I didn't "enjoy" it anymore.
I needed a break; a vacation of sorts after Nova Open finished up. Guild Wars 2 was the final nail in the coffin, as I've been spending at least some of my newly freed up time in there. And I will continue to do so, because the game is excellent. Just not as much, as I won't become an addict. lol!
With that being said, its good to get my fingers moving again on the keyboard. You can thank Algesan for that (email should be popped off to you tonight or tomorrow sir). Let's hope it stays this way. Lots of stuff to say and definitely things to update. Implausible Nature is obsolete and that is unacceptable. ;)
I want to finish up with me mentioning a return to how I previously did things in the beginning of IN's life. I'm going back to my focus on competitive gaming. That's what I do, that is what I'm good at. My finish at Nova Open was sufficient proof to myself, and others, that this is the case. While I won't be giving up the painting and hobby aspect of the website, I simply am not suited to making "competitive" fluffy lists...if such a thing currently exists for us. I'm no asshole, so I'm not going to sit here and tell you that you're list is crap, but I will tell you what works or doesn't.
This website was also originally intended to be a tool to teach newer players about the BT army. I wanted it to be a permanent source of current information, not reliant on blog posts. So I'm going to be going back to that, so you'll notice a drop off on posts unless I'm feeling super motivated. Sorry if this disappoints readers, but its just the way has to be. In the end, I have to do all of this in a way that makes me enjoy it, so that a "product" is put out for you all.
This blog is devoted to the Black Templars chapter and the tactics, list building, and general musing associated with them. Readers will see occasional posts from Marshal Laeroth.
