Exploration 2: Just the Beginning

Exploration 2: Just the Beginning

When it comes to exploration, I couldn’t be more excited about the ideas Chris Roberts and crew have presented so far for Star Citizen, and despite it being a year since 3.0 was first announced and a year since my podcast regarding exploration, it is still an exciting prospect. So here it is, a recap and fresh look at 3.0 and exploration and the ships involved in the future of exploration in Star Citizen.

Portalarium and the Shroud of the Avatar

Again, I cannot apologize enough for not doing podcasts right now. Please keep praying for Grandma Char as she goes through tremendous teeth (plural) problems. Without her, we’re kind of up a creek with regards to daycare three days a week, and I spend my weekends trying to keep up with school work.

But this came across my pad and I had to share. As much as I love Chris Roberts of Wing Commander etc. fame, my undergrad years were spent in the late Ultima games of Richard “Lord British” Garriott. The gang at Cloud Imperium brought him and his new group, Portalarium, out of Austin, Texas to our attention this week as they are looking for investors as they open up a new fantasy world similar in style to the Star Citizen universe, with a dynamic economy, land and home ownership, and as instance-less experience as possible in a perpetual universe that only the Lord British could dream up.

I don’t know about you, but this has my heart pounding a bit and I have to take a look… just as soon as I find some income. Lowest investment for INVESTORS (that is people who are actually going to have stock in the company from what I gather) is $500 and comes with in-game perks as well. Take a look. I’ll see if I can scrape some pennies together so I can give a decent review somewhere down the line.

Thanks again, everyone, for your patience, please prayerfully consider $1 a month through Patreon to help with this daycare disaster, and God bless.

Happy Father’s Day!

To paraphrase Spock from the JJ Abrams reboot of Star Trek, as doing a podcast on Father’s Day ships would seem “oddly self-serving,” I’m skipping in this year in favor of giving y’all this quick notice of the Father’s Day special by Star Citizen for racing ships. Okay, honestly, I just ran completely out of time and am in Phoenix next week for a class on sermons, yet I still think such a podcast would be self-serving. I will deal with that subject later. Meanwhile, from my house to yours, Happy Father’s Day. God bless and keep the charcoal burnin.

Shhhh… New Project…

Shhhh… New Project…

Just formed a new Facebook Group for creating audio dramas of the transcript postings by Cloud Imperium Games on RobertsSpaceIndustries.com. If you are in the northern Denver area or just have the gear to do clean mp3 recordings of your voice to add to the dramas, join the group or let me know at info@longhaulpreacher.space so we can create some great material.

Flying on the Cheap

Flying on the Cheap

With apologies to anyone who thought I was saying that you absolutely have to start with a multi-passenger ship to get into Star Citizen with the family, this is my take on the two cheapest game packages, for the Aurora MR and Mustang Alpha for $45, the directly of gameplay for each, and about the effectiveness of the convoy in family fun.

Thank you, Rob Sharp.

We just got word that early this Friday morning, my good friend and brother in Christ, Rob Sharp, finally took the last road home to heaven after a long fight against cancer. While I’m personally sad that we shall never meet again here on Earth, I am glad that he is no longer in pain, but is in his Father’s arms, and I have no doubt he is hearing those words we all hope to hear, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

Along with prayers for the family, please consider making a donation to your favorite cancer research foundation.
