The Witan Whicker Man

COMING FEB 21ST TO A LONELY WELSH COTTAGE NEAR YOU.

The Witan Whicker Man

I won’t go into all the reason; some personal, some technical, some fiscal but there hasn’t been much movement on the whole Burning Car Press front of recent. To be honest, everything has pretty much come to a grinding halt, for which I can but apologise. Life as they say, gets very much in the way of our best laid plans. The good news, as I’m sure you will have by now guessed, is that there is once again motion. Victory, my poisoned children of time, is within our grasp.

  • So swill out those blood stained shot glasses.
  • Wipe clean the carpet of all those wasted bodily fluids.
  • Sieve that as yet unidentified tooth from the bottom of the Tequila.
  • Gird your loins and wipe away those tears.
  • Surrender, but don’t give yourself away.
  • Unfold your copy of TOPTA-lite and wipe the encrustment from your set of Ringo Dice (there on sale; did you know that?)
  • Prepare yourselves mein kinda; the grave calls louder to us all, but we’ve fun, madness and mockery yet to sing.

The site is up. The TOPTA lite rules are available and a scenario will soon be available too. Due in part to the change in the weather, Witches and Heros and The Big E, have also begun to lurch, spastic to a table top near you. And plans are afoot, from the besieged play testers of Worthing for a blitzkrieg to the soothing and melancholic mountains of southern Wales for PWOD 3. Yes, like poorly prepared beef tartare, the Porthcawl Weekend of Death is to repeat upon us. Time Agent Teackle, J is, as we speak, on the red phone (THE RED PHONE!!) to a bemused Welsh Milk Maid, negotiating landing rights for our crystal ships and for cattle upon which to experiment.

So rejoice. In 15 billion years, there’ll be no one to hear the laughter.

Wasn’t happy with the last theme, so I’ve swapped again. No real real reason, just wasn’t swinging my way.

A couple of notifications. Firstly, many of you have mentioned that in  order to “like” anything on http://www.burningcarpress.co.uk you have to join wordpress, and understandably this isn’t something you wish to do. I’m now using a different widget which I’m hoping will not ask you to sign up to anything.

Secondly. I worked my arse off to get the rules ready for the date I finally set and I did it. Four disjointed and dysfunctional years since the first anti-depressant and gin fuelled idea bounced out of my head and on to a page. And there it is now, available for free, what I feel is a beautiful looking, wittily written, fun to play, set of rules sitting on my my site.

So I would ask, nay beg, that you download a copy. That you “like” the site and share the pages. And that you subscribe to the BCP site and encourage friends, neighbours, co-workers and even complete strangers to do the same. Because  when the full rules come out with what I’m sure will be a reasonable retail price, and I sell a million copies, I can finally do what I’ve always wanted to do; retire to a Puerto Rican whore house where and an army of sixteen year old, oiled, latino hotties can work a 24/7 shift pattern licking my love pump.

So, please, please, please: LIKE, SHARE, DOWNLOAD and PLAY

PLAY and ENJOY

All my love, your emotionally crippled and desperate friend
