So, the Lost Hemisphere blog is a thing again! After accidentally ruining Gday’s stealthy relaunch via Twitter, it seemed the decent thing to offer my services and contribute an article or two, so here I am.
Now, those who know me will be well aware that I’m a fan of the big turtle (or Stompy, as I call him). It’s no coincidence that he’s taken pride of place as my avatar. Unfortunately, pretty much everyone else seems to disagree with me. With accusations of being “The Worst Battle Engine” or “A Pretty Paperweight”, I know I’ve got my work cut out defending the Animantarax, but hey! This is Lost Hemisphere! Here we champion the underloved, and make up for our lack of skill by rogueing the meta. I’ve been running Stompy in big and small events for quite a while now, and I’d like to share what I’ve learned. This isn’t meant to be an exhaustive list of tips, just a few nuggets that I’ve found from my own, often painful experiences.
