EditorialHi all, well I was going to announce the lovely new-look nightflyer, but ... well, yes, hmmm. Delayed and not very new-look is all that can be said about this one I'm afraid. Maybe next time...
Amongst a number of... delayed... articles are the report on the AGM
last term, which as its title suggests contains many lies about fine
upstanding members of the community. I can assure you that there is
no truth to what is printed within, but in the interests of free speech
I have allowed it to be printed. Also we have an article whose effects
may have been felt already - somehow - dealing with the theme of "weirdness"
in the new society game, Vendetta. Those playing the game may be forgiven
for thinking that weirdness has indeed taken place during this game,
and indeed it has. However so far we seem to have avoided any magic,
beasties or similar. Well done everyone!
Also in this issue, fiction by Sarah Blake, some bizarre games for you to try out at games night, articles on the new society game Vendetta, and the runner-up Inheritance, both of which look like being stormingly good.
I would like to take a moment to consider the subject of Tim Harford's article,
reprinted from his magazine,
The notion of a world in which
an apocalypse has occurred is not new. But Tim has turned this on its head with
the historical setting of the years following 1000 AD when many people believed
that the world would end.
