MODIPHIUS ADVENT CALENDAR - 8th DECEMBER
After we finished the Achtung! Cthulhu Kickstarter, Rita and I went to visit her family in Belarus. There's an amazing War Museum in Minsk, but you have to visit the Stalin Line for the real deal. There's a field of trashed tanks and vehicles from the war, there's old sealed up bunkers, lines of tanks from WW2 and the Cold War up to recent times plus the shooting range. Now 'shooting range' is one way of describing it. It's a wooden shack, with a line of guns, a guy who sells you bullets for a $ a piece, and a grassy slope, but no warning signs to stay away from the grass. Of course Belarussian girls know how to relax and Rita was soon trying out the AK47!
I discovered a new love when we got back to Minsk... Generalski Chocolate from Belarus, a dark but sweet chocolate that is my new brain food! We brought back a case and everyone is under instructions to deliver more when they visit. Fresh out of the freezer its...amazing, you'll never touch milk chocolate again, ever!
Seeing all those WW2 tanks lined up helped inspire one of the big ideas we're announcing in the new year. I recently finished the design brief and handed it over to a very talented designer. So we'll see more of that New Year!
