Sgurgola

My roots are from this little village at South of Rome, along the way to Magna Graecia. Not a Latin ground but the land of Hernici people.

I was born in Rome and this is only the place where I spent a couple of weeks every year as holidays during my childhood.

This is not more my place, my ground, my house. I feel a little sad about it.

Streetfood near my street

And now something different! In last times there is an attention to street food as a peculiar kind of nutrition. It is low-cost, fast and different from usual. However we are Italians so our street food culture is great and all taste very good. Now it is very frequent to see temporary street food markets. This was near where I live (you can recognise it as a set in “La dolce vita” film). The opportunity to eat things that you didn’t think that existed.

Romics – october 2017

Two times every year, this is an appointment that I don’t want to miss. As the same I go here in the less overcrowded day of the convention. I find some comics that I didn’t pick up previously, a lot of gadgets (as Funko), and a day immersed in one of my principal interests. And in the last years it is even the moment to taste weird foods and beverages from Asia, and a big slice of pizza with mortazza.

Romics – april 2017

Time travel. There were two more Romics editions after this one. Always the same story about backlog of posts. However we had fun at time. It is the excuse to buy comics, gadgets. And to taste strange foods and drinks from Asia. And to watch beautiful female cosplayers. We visit Romics during an entire day from the open to the closure, always in the less overcrowded day.




Due to Romics links with Japan we had the visit of Yoshiyuki Tomino, the man behind Gundam.





At the end an image of my friend Paolo together with his nephew, a eclectic cosplayer.

Damon in Rome

Damon went to visit his Ganesha Games colleagues here in Rome for two times from Malaysia, at the end of 2016 and at the start of 2017. Here in the photo a cocky Roman seagull saw during his tourist visit.

Here we are in ARSM club headquarters for some playing. Together with us Damon’s wife and Luca with his two hooligans. Rogue Stars and Run from the Dead on the menu.




Some time after, and some degrees up, at my home for more playing. And to test Star Eagles with 3D printed ships.

Happy New Year!

Another year! Toward the future, looking back to the past, blogging about miniatures and life. The 2017 was the year without posts because of virus infection on server. I feel sad for this. A lot of work made during years stolen by fake Hogan sellers. I hope that now there will be no more problems. My websites are full operating: Leadaddicted, Ogam, Ferrum et Gloria, Legio Palatina. However I have got so little free time that I have to decide what to do with Leadaddicted blog. I think that posts are a fun thing to do, but it is all time that I subtract to rules writing and gaming. So only few posts will be published, just a couple every month. And I think to propose less text, because texts means time to write them. I want to show you what I did in these months. I still have to publish old stuff of 2016 and 2017, so this blog will be very asynchronous. Not so istant stuff as social media do. But this remains my blog and my personal journal on line.

I’m still busy with my new house, it is a neverending effort. And in the meantime I’m writing a sequel for Palaeo Diet. After I have to work on FeG II. I say no more because all programmes are subject to real life duties. I hope to have fun. Enjoy 2018!

Happy New Year!

Another year! Toward the future, looking back to the past, blogging about miniatures and life. But, for the first time, posts weren’t published in the last weeks. I have problems with the server and its capability to be infected by various kinds of viruses. Maybe the infection is spread inside the databases too, so I have to reconstruct all my websites. I have to work on it. Basically now my space is a place where you could be infected. And I don’t want to publish new posts to attract potential victims. Moreover these days were so intense that I haven’t time to write posts. My new house, conventions, real life work, friends, totally absorbed all my time. So I have materials to show to you but I don’t have a secure place and the time to do it.
Some new things I think we will see in 2017: three Ganesha Games’ kickstarters, Ferrum et Gloria II, maybe a Viking game and a roleplay, a trip to Salute, my participation to various conventions, my new bedroom. What will really happen? You will know reading these pages, if they still exist. In the meantime, Happy New Year!

Weekend with bunnies

I’m returned from Lucca. Still alive, almost. New adventures are waiting us, but now it is better to narrate the old ones. As this long weekend with Andrea in Rome. The time to do something related to miniatures and something different.

In spare time we dedicated our efforts in playtesting for Ganesha Games. Now I have got a real 180×120 table to use over my kitchen table. The test was so even for the new table.

The Friday night we had a presentation of the new edition of the class on game writing. Together with Andrea another Andrea, of Wing of War fame.

We were in a museum of modern art where once a month they organise Macro Games Night. Inside the museum restaurant, people can eat, and then play with boardgames and wargames. A great suggestive location, a terrace in the middle of building built at the start of 1900. Young people everywhere, a lot of games. I haven’t photos of that night, pity.

The day after, in the first afternoon we played a game of Rogue Stars with the restaurant owners. We used one of the tables for buffet. Note dishes and cutlery under it.

The Saturday night we tasted in a new shop near my house a Chinese delicatessen: bubble tea. It is really weird, but I can taste it here instead to go to Taiwan. So I save a lot of money.

And Sunday was the day for a fair about bunnies. Their owners have an occasion to meet and to present real field to their little friends.

How to test your bunny with a high hurdles if bunnies are not interested in high hurdles?

To end, a photo of a really nice chap.
