Malign Portents: Path to Glory
Games Workshop: Tacoma Place – This will be the first round in our store's Path to Glory campaign. Games must take place in store and be completed by close of business Wednesday night. We will be using the warband construction rules found in the Path to Glory book*, with the exception that every play may field their corresponding Harbringer for FREE! We will be using the Realm of Battle: Shyish rules as well as the Malign Portent rules for all battles. These can be found on pages 48-56 of the Malign Portents campaign book. Participation will add followers to your warband and qualify points towards the Dread Solstice global campaign! Inquire in store or via messenger for further information. *If you are using battletomes Maggontkin, Legions of Nagash or an updated warband from the General's Handbook simply tell Steve or Tony at the end of your first game before rolling for advancement.

Dread Solstice Global Campaign Week 2
Games Workshop: Tacoma Place – From February the 15th, for six weeks, Games Workshop, Warhammer, and Independent stores across the world will allow you to take part in this campaign. Dread Solstice is a new kind of narrative campaign. Rather than fighting for your allegiance, you’ll be fighting to influence the future in a developing narrative. Starting with the first week, the story may progress down one of three paths – by winning battles and painting new warscrolls of units, you’ll be able to pick which path you want to follow. Your choices will reverberate across the rest of the campaign – perhaps one week you’ll opt to fortify, only to come under siege later, or a failure to recover an artefact in one instance could have dire consequences later. This won’t just be represented by the story but by rules for you to use in the games as the inhabitants of Mortal Realms react to the invaders in their midst… You can register your wins for your chosen option each week at your local participating store, and you’ll be able to contribute points from games you’ve played at home, too. All points must be reported in store. 1 point per victory in battle 1 point per newly painted warscroll The deadline for results each week is 7:00 PM Wednesday night – we’ll then collect your results and adjust the campaign to recognize the choices you’ve collectively made. After this, a new set of paths will appear, based on your previous decisions. More information is available at: https://malignportents.com/dreadsolstice/

Legal Problem-Solving: Hacking for Solutions
Seattle University School of Law – In this fast-paced program you will learn strategies for finding fast, effective, and comprehensive solutions to problems. Best of all, you'll be given an opportunity to practice these skills. Attendees and lawyers from Volunteer Legal Services and local firms will be given a chance to present to the group work challenges they face in their practice; attendees will then have the opportunity to work together in small groups to develop an answer and/or approach for solving the problems using the skills they have learned. At the end, each small group will have a few minutes to present their solution to a judging panel who, in good fun, will name a winner of the hackathon. This program is priced at only $39 for three credits to encourage you to try this new type of CLE. The program will be held at the Old Town Music Society Venue in Tacoma. So come, bring your problems, and together we will work to improve the profession for everyone.

ASUPS Campus Films: Kicks
ASUPS - Associated Students of the University of Puget Sound – Fifteen-year-old Brandon longs for a pair of the freshest sneakers that money can buy, assuming that merely having them on his feet will help him escape the reality of being poor, neglected by the opposite sex and picked on by everyone - even his best friends. Working hard to get them, he soon finds that the titular shoes have instead made him a target after they are promptly snatched by Flaco, a local hood. Brandon goes on a mission to retrieve his stolen sneakers. "Tipping, who also co-wrote the polished script, captures this unique mix of adolescent anxiety, urban decay and societal friction in a remarkably confident fashion." - Barry Hertz, Globe and Mail "What Tipping masters perfectly in the film is the constant ebb and flow of humor, and darkness, that runs through the narrative that is inner city boyhood." - Aramide Tinubu, Shadow and Act "A dangerous quest for a stolen pair of shoes becomes an odyssey through ravaged California minority neighborhoods where drugs are omnipresent and violence is never far away. It is a tale of lost innocence, absent fathers and rites of passage." - Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope Watch a trailer here: https://goo.gl/DaaMVy
