  1. With the arrival of a second SSD in this sector of space The Durandal Initiative is proud to bring you a 600 pt match of dueling SSDs. SgtDurandal and @NightAngel47 face off in what is sure to be an interesting slug fest. Join us tomorrow around 8:15 PM MST!
  2. @JauntyChapeau How was the turn out last weekend? Sorry we weren't able to make it down. Summer time is tough with the family schedule.
  3. Miracle of miracles! The SSD has arrived! Even better, @durandal343 and I stumbled upon some unexpected free time. The Armada Gods have indeed smiled upon us this day. And so, for the first time ever we'll be taking the SSD out of it's pretty pretty box and I'm going to do my best not to fly it straight off the map. Join us tonight around 8:30 pm MST for what is sure to be an amazing display of fumbling around this giant model like a 16 year old trying to unhook a bra for the first time.
  4. How's attendance been? I'm hoping to be able to make some time in Aug to head down you way. Fingers crossed!
  5. After an unplanned hiatus that lasted many cycles, The Durandal Initiative is not only excited to be back playing Armada but we're thrilled to announce that we have new blood joining us tomorrow night. A new commander has moved to our sector of the galaxy, @NightAngel47 will be joining @SgtDurandal for a friendly match tomorrow night June 25th at around 8:15 pm MST.
  6. Well hello! Welcome to the area! Unfortunately, the last game store in town closed down last summer. At the moment the Armada scene in Rapid consists of myself and @durandal343. We play as often as we can and stream our games here: https://www.youtube.com/thedurandalinitiative. If you're interested in grabbing a game sometime let me know. We'd be happy to have another regular player. As for organizing a tournament. I think we'd like to try but schedules being what they are right now I'm not sure. If we could get more then a couple people to commit I could arrange a venue and possibly a modest prize pool.
  7. Hey there @JauntyChapeau! Glad to hear Armada is still going on down there. I think I may try and make my way down there for one of those tournaments. We really need get Regionals back to Denver!!!
  8. Once again after a long hiatus we're back with another friendly match of Pew Pew Starships tonight March 16th, LIVE around 8 PM MST.
  9. Happy to be able to get a last minute game of Armada in tonight 8:30 PM MST. Drop in and check it out. Drop us a line in the chat!
  10. Just when you thought you were rid of us... We pop up again like an annoying cold sore. Due to family obligations it's been some time since we've been able to play, let alone stream a match of this game we all love. Luckily we'll be able to dust off the ships tomorrow and have at it. We'll be rusty and completely out of the loop with the current meta but stop by and drop us a line in the chat while we wreck it.
  11. That's life. And I think as it stands right now there hasn't been enough confirmed people that can make it so I think we'll have to shelve this idea for now. I think we'll try and organize something again in the Spring.
  12. Thanks for the suggestions. I'm working up a short paragraph or 2 to give some broad strokes of the general setting and history. Hopefully that'll be enough to get us started.
  13. I've got a group starting that has never experienced the L5R universe before. We're going to start off a week from today. Before going into the Starter Kit does anyone know of a nice concise way to intro players into the world? A brief background and history that would be easily digestible for new players before jumping into the Topaz Championship. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
  14. Excellent! Let's have another sound off if we can of people that can commit. I'll put together everything based on those numbers.
  15. I totally get not looking forward to the drive. @durandal343 and I once drove to Denver for the regionals there. 6 hours in the car (with him) was very unpleasant . But totally worth it! Hope it works out that you can join us.
  16. I sympathize with you. It's not a terrible drive from Pierre. Any chance you'd be interested in attending?
  17. Totally understandable! My brother lives in Ft Collins and might be interested in coming up for this as well. I'll keep you posted.
  18. Sorry that the timing works out that way! I'm hoping this will just be the first we organize . I'd like to do a couple a year is possible. Next time and good luck at Worlds!
  19. Alright ya'll. It's a bit short notice but does the first Sat in November (that's Nov 3rd) work for anyone that's interested in a "The Other Tatooine Tournament" here in Rapid City, SD. I currently have a roof and 4 walls that can handle 4 tables of Armada simultaneously. Please let me know if you can commit and if we get more than 8 players I'll work at finding a better venue. https://www.facebook.com/events/311312389651868/ Also, big shout out to The Armchair Admirals who have offered to provide some tournament prizes for this event. More info coming...
  20. After taking a few weeks off @durandal343 is ready to get back into the Commander's chair, dust off his plastic Rebel Fleet and fly once more into the breach! With him as always is SgtDurandal, flying out under the mighty Galactic Empire's flag. Join us 9/6 around 8:30 pm MST for an evening of plastic space combat. We go pew pew starships.... everybody wins.
  21. Thanks for the responses! Right now we're looking at 5-7 people interested. If we can get up to 10 I'll get to work trying to organize The Other Tatooine Tournament.
  22. We were lucky enough to be able to reschedule our match for tonight around 8:30 pm MST. The Durandal Initiative is happy to be hosting a special guest for tonight's match. Justin has been playing casually since Wave 1 and was a great encouragement to us when we first started. Really looking forward to this match!
  23. Unfortunately we're going to have to cancel tonight's stream. Justin got called into work last min. We'll shoot for another stream next week. Sorry everyone.
  24. NECROMANCY! - Hey all, I've been kicking around the idea of organizing a casual tournament here in Rapid City, South Dakota this Fall. Might be able to provide kit prizes but if not The Durandal Initiative could potentially provide some swag to the winners. Since our local game store closed it's doors today this tournament would be held at a venue in Rapid City, SD TBD. I've got several available options that would work depending on the level of interest. What I'm wondering is.... are there players in or around the Midwest region that would be interested in attending assuming scheduling works out? If this is something that you could see yourself at please sound off. @deDios @jasonkc25 @RyonOlson @Palanthas @Andrew Wiggin @JauntyChapeau @durandal343
  25. We will be streaming a friendly match live Wed 8/29 @ 730ish MST with a special Guest. Justin will be joining the stream for the first time! He's been playing Armada casually since Wave 1. Looking forward to having him on the stream. Stop by to watch and welcome the new honorary member of The Durandal Initiative!
