'Arvard 'Ardboyz Doubles Tournament
Pandemonium Books and Games, Saturday, September 20 at 11am
The Arvard Ardboyz will be hosting a Warhammer 40,000 Doubles Event as detailed below. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask, and we look forward to seeing you for the event. WHAT: Warhammer 40,000 Doubles Event WHEN: Saturday September 20th 2014. 11:00am - 8:00pm Doors open at 10:00am WHERE: Pandemonium Books and Games: 4 Pleasant St., Cambridge, MA COST: $30.00 Per Team, $20.00 if a member of the Arvard Ardboyz is part of your team. There will be two players per team and this event will be capped at 14 Teams. Teams are encouraged to pre-register as space may not be available if over 14 teams. To Pre-register, send an email to arvardardboyztourney@gmail.com WHAT TO BRING: Each player needs to bring a fully painted army, codex, dice, tape measure, templates (if needed), and something to transport the army between Rounds. The Team needs to bring 3 copies of it's list. This can be 3 copies of one list that has both players Army choices, or each player can bring 3 copies of their own list. Rule Books: The Warhammer 40,000 SEVENTH Edition Rules will be used. The following is a list of legal army choices: Codex: Blood Angels Codex: Chaos Daemons Codex: Chaos Space Marines Codex: Grey Knights Codex: Dark Angels Codex: Dark Eldar Codex: Eldar Codex: Astra Militarum Codex: Necrons Codex: Orks Codex: Space Marines Codex: Space Wolves Codex: Tau Empire Codex: Tyranids Codex: Adepta Sororitas Codex: Militarum Tempestus Codex: Inquisition Fortifications: Aegis Defense Line. No other Fortifications will be used for this event. All **allowed codex** supplements and dataslates will be allowed in this event unless otherwise noted. You will need to have those rules onhand during the event however. ** Each Team is required to have 3 copies of it's army list: (1 copy for the organizer, 1 copy for itself, and 1 copy to show the opponent team) Each team's army list will be checked and verified during Round One of the event. If any Team is found to have a list that is ILLEGAL, the Event Organizer will address the matter after Round One is completed, AND determine if the results of that Team's Round One outcome needs to be adjusted. If a Team that has an Illegal army list is unable to correct it by the start of Round Two, that Team will be disqualified from the remainder of the event. MODELS AND POINTS: * Each player must bring a BATTLE-FORGED army consisting of 1250 points, in accordance with these rules. * Armies may be constructed from a maximum of 2 Detachments (as defined in the 40K BRB), no more than one of which may be a CAD. * Detachments may be produced from a maximum of ONE codex/ codex supplement. Selected units that alter Force Organization selections WILL affect all other detachments from the same codex within a single player's army list. For example, a Space Marines Master of the Forge allows all detachments using Codex Space Marines to take Dreadnoughts, Venerable Dreadnoughts and Ironclad Dreadnoughts as Heavy Support choices as well as Elites choices. For this event, each player's army comprises one half of a coalition. There is no sharing of codex rules outside of their own individual detachments (if any) between the two coalition armies. *** All models must follow “What You See Is What You Get” (WYSIWYG). All weapons, war gear, and so forth must be represented on the model unless otherwise approved by the Organizer. FORMAT: There will be three 2.5 hour rounds. A 45 minute break after Round One for lunch, and a short break between round Two and Three. We will begin at 11:00am or sooner if everyone is ready, and the event will wrap up between 8:00-8:30pm. SCORING: * The Arvard Ardboyz Games Workshop Events are considered Total-Hobby-Events. This means the weight of scores is distributed among several categories that include all aspects of Warhammer 40,000 participation. Scoring is available in the following categories: - Sportsmanship, Army Appearance, Battle Points, Army Composition, Bonus Points * SPORTSMANSHIP: 25% - This is an important category for Ardboyz events. Our events are meant to be a pleasant interaction of the opposing teams to bring the Warhammer 40,000 universe to life for a few hours while playing a game at a somewhat more than casual level. Having a good time playing a challenging match is what it's about. The scoring for this assumes that each Team will score perfectly each Round by defaulting a basic score. But if an occasion does arise that an opponent displays exceptionally well done sportsmanship, or obviously poor sportsmanship; players can mark that after each Round. Marking a team for bad Sportsmanship though will require an explanation and review by the Event Organizer. * ARMY APPEARENCE: 25% - Having a fully painted army to deploy, and to square off against in a match, goes a long way to immersing oneself in the moment of the experience while playing. Ardboyz events score an army's appearance in three ways: 1) The majority of the points are scored on objective observation. Examples: are all of the models painted? are all of the models based? is there unit insignia? This type of scoring covers the minimum that can generally be done to an army to get it 'tabletop ready'. 2) Just like in sportsmanship though, there is room for participants to earn extra points by presenting an army that goes beyond satisfying the basics and brings forth detailed examples of the modeler's craft. Examples: does the army contain conversions or extensive kit-bashing? does the army show consistent use of intermediate to advanced techniques such as dry-brushing, line highlighting, weathering or seamless decaling? does the army have stand-out centerpieces or scratch built models or sculpts? This type of scoring gives those participants who go a little further extra points for bringing more to the table. 3) This last type of scoring is completely subjective and will only apply to up to 3 Armies. It asks the person judging all of the army's that day to pick the 3 armies they think have been presented in the most talented way. ** It is also important to note that as this event is a Doubles Event, the army appearance scores will be combined into one TEAM SCORE. As such, teams can earn extra points by modeling a common theme for their armies, building a unified display board, or otherwise presenting the Team's armies as being visually combined in some way that goes beyond just setting up next to each other. * BATTLE POINTS: 35% - The most straight forward of the points earned. What a Team scores from the games played. * ARMY COMPOSITION: 15% - For those that may be unfamiliar with Army Composition, this is an older category that has often been left behind in recent years by newcomers to the Games Workshop event scene; but still has a place in Arvard Ardboyz events. Army Composition as it is used by the Ardboyz is a way to recognize and reward players who choose an army list that combines several technical considerations while adhering to a primary principal of construction: Technical Considerations: How well does my army represent a typical everyday force in the 40K universe? Is my army designed to handle any mission, or is it designed to fight to the bitter end? Is my army meant to do one thing, or is it well suited to a multitude of evolving tactics? Is my army easy to use or does it require a skilled player to make the most of it? Primary Principal: Will this army be fun for me to play AND fun for my opponent to face? - Army Composition is an artistic category that ultimately rewards players for playing an army that is geared toward a challenging match rather than a crushing victory. The goal is to make a list that is neither too weak to win, or meant simply to overwhelm an opponent, but provide a platform for both sides to have an even chance of winning or losing based on player tactics rather than solely on the perceived statistical qualities of the selected units. To face an opponent who's tactics will determine who makes the most of a 50/50 split in odds at the start of the game rather than trying to

Deep within the Ozark Mountains of Arkansas, a terrorist family resides in a compound they call the Fortress.

The last piece of their plan is infiltrating Peter Wallace, considered their prodigy, into the FBI. They ingeniously devise a plan, which successfully places Peter at the FBI Academy. However, upon graduation, Peter is posted to the Boston office of the FBI. While there, he tangles with Carlos Sullivan, Boston's polygraph examiner, who begins to suspect Peter is not who he claims to be. Sullivan and his team begin a search for the truth. Will they succeed in foiling the Wallace's terrorist plot in time? Or will the Wallace's evil conspiracy bring the country to its knees?

Somerville Reads: Deborah Kops, author of The Great Molasses Flood
Somerville Public Library, Sunday, September 21 at 4pm
Please join us as we welcome Deborah Kops, author of The Great Molasses Flood, Boston 1919. This event is recommended for kids age 8 and older, and their families.
A strange and sticky piece of history. January 15, 1919, started off as a normal day in Boston's North End. Workers took a break for lunch, children played in the park, trains made trips between North and South Stations. Then all of a sudden a large tank of molasses exploded, sending shards of metal hundreds of feet away, collapsing buildings, and coating the harborfront community with a thick layer of sticky-sweet sludge. Deborah Kops takes the reader through this bizarre and relatively unknown disaster, including the cleanup and court proceedings that followed. What happened? Why did the tank explode? Many people died or were injured in the accident—who was to blame? Kops focuses on several individuals involved in the events of that day, creating a more personal look at this terrible tragedy.
The Great Molasses Flood was a finalist for the 2013 Boston Authors Club's Young Readers Prize and was listed in: The National Council for the Social Studies' Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People for 2013; The New York Public Library's Children's Books 2012: 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing list; and The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books' Blue Ribbons List for 2012.
Deborah Kops has written more than twenty books for children and young adults. She lives with her husband and son in the Boston area, and enjoys visiting old historic cities along the Atlantic coast, such as Salem, Massachusetts, and Portsmouth, New Hampshire.
Somerville Reads is a project that promotes literacy and community engagement by encouraging people all over the City to read and discuss the same book. Copies of The Great Molasses Flood are available for check out at all Somerville Public Library locations. (added from Eventkeeper)

Dinner with Laird Hunt
Porter Square Books, Sunday, September 21 at 7pm
Join Laird Hunt, author of Neverhome, for an evening of food, drink, and books.

Dinner is at Christopher's, across Mass. Ave. from the bookstore, and the ticket price includes appetizer, entree, beverage (beer or wine), tax, and tip.

Neverhome is available now, and we will also have copies for sale at the dinner. Because Neverhome is an Indie Next List Pick, it will be 20% off during the month of September.

"The Civil War has given us so many great literary works that I couldn't have imagined a new fictional approach that was both stunningly original and yet utterly natural, even inevitable. But this is just what Laird Hunt brilliantly delivers in his new novel. The key is his central character: in her voice, her personality, her yearning, she deeply touches our shared and enduring humanity. Neverhome is masterful work by one of our finest writers."—Robert Olen Butler, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning A Good Scent from a Strange Mountain

"Laird Hunt's new novel is a beguiling and evocative story about love and loss, duty and deceit. Through the assured voice of his narrator and the subtle beauty of his writing, Neverhome took me on a journey so thoroughly engrossed that there were times the pages seemed to turn themselves."—Kevin Powers, author of The Yellow Birds

She calls herself Ash, but that's not her real name. She is a farmer's faithful wife, but she has left her husband to don the uniform of a Union soldier in the Civil War. Neverhome tells the harrowing story of Ash Thompson during the battle for the South. Through bloodshed and hysteria and heartbreak, she becomes a hero, a folk legend, a madwoman and a traitor to the American cause.

Laird Hunt's dazzling new novel throws a light on the adventurous women who chose to fight instead of stay behind. It is also a mystery story: why did Ash leave and her husband stay? Why can she not return? What will she have to go through to make it back home?

In gorgeous prose, Hunt's rebellious young heroine fights her way through history, and back home to her husband, and finally into our hearts.

Laird Hunt is the author of several works of fiction and a finalist for the PEN/Hemingway Award, a two-time finalist for the PEN Center USA Award in Fiction, and the winner of the Anisfield-Wolf Award. A former United Nations press officer currently on the faculty of the University of Denver's creative writing program, he and his wife, the poet Eleni Sikelianos, live in Boulder, Colorado, with their daughter, Eva Grace.

Mary Gordon, The Liar's Wife
Porter Square Books, Monday, September 22 at 7pm
The beloved author at her storytelling best: four wonderful novellas of Americans abroad and Europeans in America. In these tales of relationships at home and abroad, both historical and contemporary, we meet the ferocious Simone Weil during her final days as a transplant to New York City; a vulnerable American grad student who escapes to Italy after her first, compromising love affair; the charming Irish liar of the title novella, who gets more out of life than most of us; and an American high school kid meeting Thomas Mann. These stories dazzle on the surface, with beautifully rendered settings and vistas, and dig deep psychologically. At every turn Gordon reveals in her characters' interactions those crucial flashes of understanding that change lives forever. So richly developed it is hard to believe they fit into novella-sized packages, these tales carry us away both as individual stories and as a larger, book-length experience of Gordon's mastery and human sympathy.

Mary Gordon is the author of six novels, including Final Payments, Pearl, and The Love of My Youth; the memoirs The Shadow Man and Circling My Mother; and The Stories of Mary Gordon, which was awarded the Story Prize. She has received numerous other honors, including a Lila Wallace-Reader′s Digest Writers′ Award, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and an Academy Award for Literature from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. She teaches at Barnard College and lives in New York City.
