I will be reviewing Embers of War this weekend (spoiler: IT’S REALLY GOOD).

Chaos: “the first created being” (Greek). No, that’s not what we’re after. “Complete disorder and confusion” …hopefully not. “Behaviour so unpredictable as to appear random, owing to great sensitivity to small changes in conditions“. YOU GOT IT.
(Kind of) Awards: “a prize or other mark of recognition” – well, you know, kind of.
