Hi everyone, I'm Daniel, the new Ogre Line Editor (read: dogsbody, aide-de-camp, and general lackey for all things Ogre).
I signed up in the wake of the hugely successful Kickstarter campaign earlier this year -- the position literally exists because of your support! Some of you may also know me as one of the organizers of the $3K Mercenary Counter Sheets.
I'm currently a part-time contractor based in Cambridge, UK, but the wheels are in motion for a move to Ogre Command in Austin later this year.
It's my job to serve all you Ogre fans out there as best as I can. Right now, that means helping to get Ogre Designer's Edition to print, and into the hands of you Kickstarter supporters!
In the past month or two I've assisted Steve with unit stats (like the Doppelsoldner, and the special variant Missile GEV on one of the $4.5K sponsor sheets), proofed over a thousand counters, checked the Pocket Ogre rulebook, run competitions at Continuum and Congenial, become a moderator for the Ogre boards, and helped with a dozen other things. I'm loving every minute of it!
Besides my lifelong passion for board games, an interest in history (I majored in Classical Studies) and a background in teaching, writing, and editing help me out as I learn on the job. I enjoy all kinds of games, but my special loves are wargames and thematic games.
Guess what? Ogre -- along with other scifi games like Battletech -- is to me the perfect blend of the two. I love the rich and imaginative background universes which provide the backdrop for the action. I'm also active on BoardGameGeek as "Talorien." Feel free to add me as a GeekBuddy, and I'll return the favor!
