khab_rmb @ 07:01 pm: call for volunteers
jayeye has the archives of CUSFuSsing, our old fanzine, and we'd like to get them scanned. We're tentatively planning a scanning party for the afternoons of June 4-5, and there will be baked goods provided. Let me know if you're free for all or part of that time, or if you're free some other time.

arks @ 12:23 am: Hallo hallo!
And welcome, new folk and old, to another glorious year of CUSFS! This is your vice president posting as promised. Items of action!

1. If you'd like to bake delicious hobbit treats with me, give me a comment or an email or drop a line to Rebecca, we're all hardwired together anyway. Current possible baking days are Saturday, Sunday, or Tuesday.

2. If you'd like to watch crazy-fun anime with me, including but not limited to Last Exile, Lovely Complex, or Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto (it's awesome, I promise) drop me a comment to that effect- I'm free Tuesdays and Thursdays during the week, we can set up a weekly thing to just watch an episode or two at a time, if you're up for it. Lemme know!

3. Feel free to friend and be friended! This could be a great networking tool if we actually use it.

This may be the best thing to come out of Bush's presidency.

When President Bush ordered troops to Iraq, he probably never imagined that he would be ultimately be responsible for what very well could be the very first D&D convention/game day ever held in a war zone. Ziggurat Con, being held June 9 from 1200 to 2100 hours at Camp Adder/Tallil Airbase, is open to all allied military personnel and civilian contractors in Iraq.

KBR and MWR (the army’s Morale Welfare & Recreation Department) have graciously allowed service members to use part of the Community Activity Center to hold the Game Day. The Ping Pong room will be set up for RPGs (Role-Playing Games, not to be confused with the rocket propelled grenades which share the same acronym), and the DVD Movie room will be playing Anime Movies all day in support of the event.

The largest problem with running a Con in Iraq, of course, is that there are no local stores or game publishers, and few game books on the post. Even dice are in short supply, with many soldiers breaking the unwritten taboo held by many gamers and sharing dice. Thankfully, many game publishers have also lent their support, and have agreed to supply game products to help the Con along. aethereal FORGE, Sovereign Press, Final Redoubt Press, Goodman Games, Paizo Publishing and Steve Jackson Games are among those that have thrown in their support for the convention. But Amberson indicated that the soldiers could definitely use more.

"This convention is currently in drastic need of prizes and giveaways for the troops," he said. "Everything donated will go directly to the troops, or to MWR to use as loaner books for the soldiers."

For more information, contact SPC David Amberson at the following address: david.amberson (at) iraq.centcom.mil

Donations can also be sent to SPC Amberson directly at the following address:

They’re planning to run the following games (and will be happy to get additional games):
Babylon 5 RPG, Cyberpunk 2020, D&D, D&D RPGA, GURPS, Historic Miniatures Battles, Magic Tournament, MechWarrior Miniatures, Rifts, Shadowrun, Starship Troopers, White Wolf System-Vampire, White Wolf System-Werewolf, XCrawl

Got any game books crowding your shelves that you never use? Here's a great cause to donate them to. Spread the word.

We would love anything we can get. We do have a White Wolf game here, but not much in the line of books, mostly the older editions. We will have a small LARP game that we are trying to get permission to have happen at the Ziggurat for which the con is named (A LARP at a historical site that has been around since Biblical times - WOW). Gamer related material would be absolutely awesome!! It takes 2 weeks or less when shipping Priority, so you still have time.
