  1. Pure Grimdark can never be contained…

  2. The phrase you’re looking for is: ‘I cannot be caged. I cannot be controlled. Understand this as you die, ever pathetic, ever fools!’

  3. Ha, just saw that quote ingame yesterday :)

    That game was a winner…

    “This woman lives and has strength of a sort. She lost her parents to plague, her husband to war, but she persevered. Her farm has prospered, her name is respected and her children are fed and safe. She lived as she thought she should.
    And now she is dead.”

    Still one of the best adversaries ive ever seen in a game.

  4. Hey Joe! Didn’t know where else to put this but check out this kickstarter game. Its basically XCOM meets the Old West. Looks sexy already. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1752350052/hard-west

  5. Joe,

    Just received your singed copy of “Half a King” big thanks man. I got delivered at my office now I have most of the office reading The Blade Itself. Keep it it up. Big fan as always. We all work a sales job in the states in NYC and my teams saying is “Better to do a task than live with the fear of doing it.” Cheers man.
