II. Sons of Taurus’ unofficial fandex-minidex for SO: Killzone.
I thought of titling this one “unofficiality,” which isn’t much of a word but should be.
There are some lovely layers of quirk at work when our humble, unofficial game can (nay must) produce Codex: Operatives unofficial updates for an unofficial fandex. That’s just the thing on the table when Sons of Taurus approached us with his lovely bit of hobby gold for the Lost and the Damned.
It’s an inspired piece of work.
… and so now there's a Killzone supplement for the same (though not for AdeptiCon. tsk. tsk.). When Sons of Taurus asked us to do this, my first thought was, wow -this game is really resonating in ways I never could have imagined. That's tremendous news, to be candid. As gamers, indeed as a gaming community, I think we are fundamentally entitled if not obligated to take control of our hobby experience. Full stop. If playing an unofficial fandex doesn't fully wet your proverbial whistle, you can take that dex into the grimmest and darkest world of Special Operations.
I should mention that Sons is part of the The Codex Project, where you will find a heady, caffeinated blend of unofficiality. That is, if you aren’t addicted already. For anyone interested in the less formal, less official end of our fine hobby, this place might well be your spiritual homeland.
For my part, I feel the entire endeavor positively teems with the basic impulse that put the very first spark underneath Special Operations: Killzone some considerable time ago. I say more.
Naturally, I have (re-)started a LatD team to round out my already stuffed KZ experience. More on that soon.
