Game Day: Battletech

by Ken Newquist / January 15, 2017

Classic Battletech is an old favorite of my gaming group. A few years ago we flirted with the idea of a Battletech campaign using a variety of possible rules (Battletech A Time of War, Risus, Savage Worlds) but it never quite took off Instead most of our games have been one-shots at Nuke(m)Con or on game nights when we failed to reach critical mass for one of our RPG campaigns.

The Nuketown Migration

by Ken Newquist / January 2, 2017

It's been four years since the last Nuketown redesign, and I don't know how many years since I first started powering the site with Drupal. It's time for some changes.

First up, I'm moving the site from Drupal to WordPress. I've been on Drupal since the 4.x days, faithfully upgrading with each major release until arriving at Drupal 7.x. It made sense at the time; Drupal is one of the open source content management systems we use at work, and it was helpful to be able to dabble with it in my free time.
