9 November 2002 :  Jeff's report from Uni-Con 2002:
Uni-Con'02 has come and gone....

Well, after a few hours sleep Sunday night, let's see if my brain still

Friday night's Bar Brawl was interesting. Out of 8 players, 4 used
Amanda. The others were Kronos, Nef, Khan (I think) and a Generic
Immortal. In the end, it was my Amanda Choke deck against Eric
Thompson's Amanda Low-Blows. I actually Choked 3 people to death! Eric
and I fought long and hard and in the end, he went to 0 before I did
(maybe I still had 1 pt left, I'm not sure, it was about 3 a.m. :^).

Saturday day was the Generic Immortal Only and MLE Lean & Mean.
Unfortunately, I was somewhat under the weather (too much Friday, I
guess), so I bowed out of the Generics early and missed the MLE all
together. I think I heard something about 'Grandpa' Miles Streufert
winning the Generics. I know Steve Hurley took the MLE Lean & Mean (he's
lucky I couldn't play :^).

Saturday evening's 'Pack Rat' sealed deck tourney had 10 players. There
were several players that drew personas from the starter & boosters. I
had a Kurgan/Annie/Khan combo that was wicked (except for the serious
lack of defenses I wound up without!). Eric pulled a
Conner/Kastagir/Slan +1/Silas +1 which took him to 3rd. It came down to
Scott Harris with his mighty WOC Shield and Miles Streufert with NO
pre-games. Grandpa Miles' well balanced sealed deck prevailed and took
home the sword. Just goes to show that even with great pre-game power,
with good support cards you just can keep up in the long run. Well done
Miles. (And good job staying up til after 3 a.m. to pull it off).

Sunday's Master constructed turn-out was a little light. I think
everyone was pretty exhausted from the 2 previous late-late nights.
There were just 4 of us. We played round-robin with Miles again racking
up a couple of headshots to take the points lead.

All in all, I think everyone had a great time.

24 July 2002 : PHEW! Firstly, apologies to you all for the extended delay in the site updates and the mailing out of the June promos. The simple reason for this is that a number of family issues came up, and the real world got in the way... actually, the best thing of all is that my wife gave birth to our son on 10th July - and the two of them have been keeping me extremely busy ever since! Anyway, to business: The freebie lists have been updated, as has the Promo Plan page. Also, the winning top 10 Addiction collectors now have their June promos. They are:

1 jdtimi (714)
2 dkwd (542)

6 The Kurgan (412)
7 Master TMO (408)

1 Feb 2002 : Welcome to the resurrected MLE site, now updated for MLE 3 - Soldiers Of Immortality. At the moment, it's little more than a duplication of the old site, which has now disappeared. Once I've got everything published, I'll have time to start on the new stuff. For the time being though, there'll be no new games, and unfortunately the Double Eagle accounts will have to be started from scratch (as the cookies relate to the specific URL of the old site, and are therefore untransferrable).

In the meantime, I need your help. I'm after submissions, and I'll consider ANYTHING. Some possibilities are:

  • New deck ideas

  • Event information

  • Ideas for expansion/improvement of this site

You can send your submissions to me here.  To make it more interesting, I've made this into a competition (click here for details).

Be sure to check out all of Gerald's improvements (listed below).

Finally, you can find the latest MLC & SOI freebies here.
