K......... A R L S Disco Wiener Haven



I've had this song randomly stuck in my head all day. Spontaneous outbursts & mumblings of it have followed. I haven't seen the movie or heard the song in decades. No idea why it popped into my head today.


So, naturally, I started thinking about gaming. Naturally. You see the connection, don't you?

About a year ago, I typed out a bit of the background & start of the campaign outline for the Jackrabbit Trading Company's part in my ridiculous grand Marienburg campaign that will probably never even get played. I think I've written a little more since. But the relevant part here is the Anabasis that follows in that outline. The plan has been a series of scenarios based on the classical "soldiers road trip" of the same name and its various relations & derivatives.

So with that in mind, the rest of my cultural mashing would involve our protagonists having a Straight to Hell like stop along their journey home through the Wasteland. I like the bonus tie-in between the hobbits' legendary wurst and Karl's Disco Wiener Haven.

At the very least, I will need to convert or sculpt (or have sculpted?) a Zander Schloss "wiener kid miniature. Maybe a few other characters.


KoW Tournament

I did end up registering for an upcoming local KoW tournament. I've got mixed feelings on the whole "tournament" thing. But I'm going to give it a shot. I think I'm just hoping to find someone (or someones) near me who are interested in playing more narrative/friendly type games. And I do like KoW. It satisfied the easy-going mass battle side of gaming for me.


Orctober

Orc's are not really a major part of any of my plans, but I'm going to paint up at least an orc or two, in the spirit of the season.

  1. Karl Franz's Wiener Disco Haven! Sounds cool. The only thing I've ever seen Zander Schloss in was Repo Man. I've watched that more times than a well adjusted human being should. If you can you should bring the scenario to another Oldhammer event, I'd play it.
