Topics I've Started
23 March 2010 - 12:00 PMThis is for anyone who loves reading and loves fantasy fiction. I'm a paintball player, but I write novels on the side, so to speak. My third and final book of my first trilogy is out and available now at Amazon.com.
It's not 100% necessary to buy the prior two books to read the third - it was purposely written to be semi-standalone - but you will definitely have questions if you read it before the first two. I highly suggest reading the trilogy in order, starting with Part Zero (book 1), then Part One: Alliances (book 2), followed by the new Part Final: Alignment (book 3).
Feel free to post questions or whatever, and thanks for your support!
The Third and Final Book, just released
My official website is here, if you want more information.

18 June 2008 - 07:37 AMWelcome to the official Mission Masters scenario team thread. This thread will be used for all topics not related to specific scenario games created and hosted by Mission Masters. Many of these topics and discussions end up taking place inside game threads, cluttering up the thread and getting wildly off topic. Here is the attempt to quell this problem and direct all additional chatter to its proper place.
The first order of business is to let you all know what's going on with various paintball articles that a lot of you have a vested interest in, mainly those who have provided valuable research material and quotes for.
I received a call from Face-full Jungle's editor today, who's based in Paris, France, and received an informative and exciting update on the status of a few articles. Please note that issue numbers are given below, but these are by no means set in stone just yet because as you know things can change last minute with publications.
The Scenario Game, Dissected should appear in issue #62, coming out sometime between July and September (I think the current June issue is #60, but I'll check this later and update if need be).
Ghost Recon: Warzone should also appear in issue #62. Jungle informed me that since the SGD article was shelved while they gathered needed pictures to accompany it, it may appear in the same article to give double coverage to my articles.
Eragon: Legacy of the Dragon should appear in an upcoming issue of Paintball2Xtremes (PB2X), but as of this writing I'm not sure which issue it will be released. Same holds true for Armageddon: Battle for Salvation. I've inquired about PB2X's interest in this article, but as of this writing it has not been confirmed for publication in any paintball magazine.
Additionally, I've been commissioned to write another standalone article for Face-full Jungle on a topic which will deal with the current U.S. economy and how it's affecting the scenario paintball scene. I'll be contacting some players on various teams and also "normal" players (walk-ons) to gain insight into how you are dealing with the gas prices and rising inflation. Paintball as a sport is taking a hit because of the already-expensive nature of the sport, but there are ways to cut corners and save money, so this article will deal directly with those methods. However, my view is skewed because I have a fortunate and humbling situation being teamed up with TRP and MM, so I want to hear from YOU, those in the trenches who have to travel a lot to play, as to how you cope. I'll contact you, so don't pepper me with anything just yet.
