Your Mongoose accolades

Postby lastbesthope » Fri May 12, 2006 11:47 pm

I had an idea for this thread.

Recently a lot of people have been putting their Mongoose tourney standings and such into their sigs.

While this is good, tthere is only so much room in your sig, and it clogs the forums a little. So I thought everyone could post their Mongoose run, or MI run tourney standings, S&P submissions, MI deployments, etc in a post on thios thread for everyone to see. You can come back and edit your posts when you gain something else of merit, and if we're really lucky, the Mongoose mods will sticky this to keep it near the top.

I'll start with the first post.

I haven't played in any of the big Mongoose convention tournaments but I would sure like to.

Playtested CTA 1st edition, Dilgar Imperium, The Tournament Pack, The Drakh, Armageddon.

Currently playtesting VaS (the forthcoming published game is awesome!).

Couldn't place in the local (2 so far) CTA tournaments because I was running them.

Actually that's true now. They used to really not get on when Alex first met Ted, but after Alex found out about Ted's stint in the Falklands he discovered they had a lot in common.
