About Me
About Me
NAME: B. Jones

AGE: 50

WHERE: Virginia, USA

WHAT DO YOU DO: Construction Management. ( I hire people to build things)


HOW DID THE CRAZINESS BEGIN: I blame my brother and his friends. They worked at a warehouse that sold GW products and started playing. Back then the Slann had 6 S8 attacks that did d6 wounds. Oh how that got me intrigued to play. So I picked up Dark Elves and ran S4 witches (poison was +1 strength back then, kiddies). Growing up, we had many D&D adventures, and dabbled in the BattleMasters games, and then was introduced to Citadel miniatures and then to Warhammer.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE SINCE: Lots of personal stuff, but with the Hobby....spent years playing at other's people's homes hosting our own mini events. I got a neighbor into the hobby and he found a Game Store nearby that had a league, so I checked it out. I was with the IFL for over 10 years until we split and made the CGL. I worked the GW Games Days in Baltimore for 7 years helping out with the Fantasy GT or running club tables. Hoping one day to have a 9th Age Game Day :)

WHICH ARMIES DO YOU PLAY: Quickest answer is what armies do I NOT play. I never got into the Infernal Dwarfs. Maybe one day. My collection is now complete. I have the full 16 armies with a minimum of 10,000 points each. Had to build an addition to store it all. The trick is putting the armies in a rotation to play. So, this is also a HUGE source of motivation for me to be an advocate for the project and its success. I need to protect my addiction, I mean investment.

WHY SUPPORT THE 9TH AGE: Why not? It has all the bells and whistles of a similar game system that I've been a part of for a long long time. I like the community driven aspect. I like that we are not tied to one method or to one overpriced manufacturer. Selfishly, I have way too much money invested in product to just walk away or have a yard sale.

WHAT IS YOUR ROLE IN THE 9TH PROJECT: Previously, I held spots in Tournament Support/Data Collection to get my feet wet in the Staff. I then went on to join up the old Conceptual Design Team. This was the group of "free thinkers" that helped to bridge the space between the new T9A background and the new Army Design Teams. We helped by providing ideas of how things might be or how things might work so that the design teams have the tools necessary to create top-notch army books, like WotDG. I also was the Head of the Campaign Team which helped me to work on Homebrew projects and trying to finish up a Campaign Book "The Broken Isles". The team was desolved to move onto other projects and directions. In the meantime I’ve been a play tester for many years of the project, helping to test out the mechanics of designs. Currently, I’m now a part of the GDT (Game Design Team) which has allowed me to work on the new Daemon Legions book, the new Vermin Swarms book, and several Supplement Books (Advanced Magics, Giants, and a new DL one “Mono Sin”), and the Vermin Errahman Supplement to date. As my passion for the hobby is as strong as ever, I will continue to beat the drum of fun play...The Rule of Cool. Not every game needs to be a win at all cost. I'm also assisting with the newly formed Pricing Team (PRT) to help give Designers an opinion on how the data is interpreted into balance and pricing issues. Ground Floor of a team and its Genesis is exciting. There is also great opportunity to reboot "The Ninth Scroll" as a publication and I'm looking forward to helping out there as well.
