Massing Near Sullust

Thanks everyone who supported my Kickstarter!

While the flight school is under construction, I’d like to hear about any specific questions you want answered or features you’d like to see.

I know one burning question is how you can get one of my many extra Push the Limit alternate art cards (I’ve collected 7 so far from various tournaments in the DC/MD/VA/WV area). Kickstarter doesn’t allow you to give away third party products as a reward to backers, so I’ll need a different mechanism.┬áMy first thought was No Reward Is Worth This, a monthly (or better) prize for people who flew poorly in a tournament but wrote a really great and insightful battle report afterwards. I’m open to suggestions, and I’ll be working to bring you as much tournament swag as I can to get a great prize pool going.

I’m going to start producing what content I can right away, but for some of it I’ll need to wait for funds to arrive and Amazon deliveries and such. But already I’ve made the first custom tool to help me make content faster and easier. Introducing, range tethers? I dunno, don’t have a great name for them. Markers on strings connected to magnets so I can draw firing arcs really quickly. Take a gander:

I also want to introduce you to the brand spanking new Idiot Token 2.0 (and his buddy, Idiot Token Classic):

They don’t necessarily help you to remember to get your rerolls or recover shields, but you are guaranteed to feel like even more of an idiot when you don’t. These are really easy to make yourself. For Idiot Token Classic, just get a razor or other cutting instrument, scrap cardboard leftover after punching out tokens, and a bit of masking tape. Leave enough room on the bottom, so the tape doesn’t bunch up when you stick the token into the base. For Idiot Token 2.0, just find a bag that came with any of your X-Wing stuff and look for a little sticker on it. Write on it before removing it from the bag, it’s harder to write once attached to the dial. (The stickers are also good for color coding you dials so you don’t confuse our TIE Fighters and TIE Interceptors.)

Or, if you don’t want to make one yourself, you can still contribute to the Kickstarter, and I’ll make one for you!

Once more, thank you all for your support. Good hunting.

    Awesome to see the site up and running! Backed you as soon as I heard you were up to something cool. Best of luck to you man, the community needs more teachers like yourself.

      I use lessons from X-Wing in teaching my freshman writing course. And use lessons from teaching that for writing tutorials. Synergy!
