Sabol Studios: A Must See for Terrain

It's funny what gets noticed.  I used pictures from my collection of a ruined Cathedral that my Indentured Servant Herr Fernseher snapped at WarGames Con for my Bell of Lost Souls article yesterday.

Whew!  What a sentence; I think it's properly crafted but someone tell me if a phrase or clause is out of place.

Anyway, I had several people ask about it so I dropped the rest of the pics in a post yesterday.  Someone from Sabol Studios dropped by to kindly point out I wasn't giving them proper credit.

This is me correcting that!  Check it out - it's a pretty incredible collection.

Name the devil and he comes running. I felt my ears burning this morning. Anyway, I think you've structured your clauses and phrases nicely around my handle.

...boy, did that sound wrong...

Not sure I'm qualified to give wordsmithing advice after that last double entendre, but my phrasing would have been:

"Yesterday, for my Bell of Lost Souls article, I used pictures of a ruined Cathedral from my collection that my Indentured Servant Herr Fernseher snapped at WarGames Con." After all, I didn't photograph them for your article! I'm feeling a niggling urge to go look up whether you should have used "which" in place of "that." Never can remember that usage rule...

Hmm. Just read mine aloud. Might minimize potential to be misunderstood (more precise), but yours certainly is more conversational (better style?). Choices, choices. The fact that you think about these things is what makes you readable. (Don't worry, "readable" isn't meant to be faint praise, coming from me.)

It's funny, I wrote the sentence out and noticed how loaded it was...

...but I decided it wasn't worth the effort of deleting and rewriting!

Certainly commas to break up the phrases would have been appropriate.

Really, I didn't even notice it until you pointed it out. But good luck using Twitter to further develop your IP. Personally, I MISS reading long sentences. Elegance of thought doesn't manifest itself in the language as it once did. So far, for the week, yours was the best of sentences, it was the worst of sentences...

Oh, and not to totally derail the comments, let me say that I am eager to see more Sabol Studios work in person.

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
