Roleplaying and GM notes mostly in Gloranthan context
Riding to Dragon Pass with an Army. Combat Styles Encyclopaedia Has A Style for You
Martin Helsdon’s incredible work on Armies and Enemies of Dragon Pass is a worthy read for any Gloranthaphile. It is also worthy read for anyone thinking of creating a consistent, rich and detailed army structure for a fantasy campaign.
Martin has kindly given me permission to create combat styles based on his tome.
The combat styles will give a glimpse but only a partial tactical glimpse of the armies combat styles. For further study I heartily recommend diving into the Armies And Enemies of Dragon Pass to dig into the background of the army and the units involved, armor and so on. The book is also very nicely illustrated in black and white with useful pictures of weapons, shields and armor. The book will also give you rich background for equipping your own units for miniature or other tabletop games as well as it paints a tapestry of military background for your characters in RPGs if they have chosen that career path.
It will also give you a chance to build your local Lunar presence more detailed and will make the rich variety of Lunar army visible in your game.

In working life
Working in large scale agile software development and architecture are close to my heart and practiced daily. Large scale here is anything involving dozens of teams working for the same release.
Continuous integration as a cornerstone of making agile development feasible and to help keep the rhythm has been in my focus for quite a bit.
In private life
I enjoy photography and seeing new places and cultures.
