You can also get a Doom hoodie, if you’re so inclined. Still a fat load of nuthin from the EuroBethStore… Those LevelUp guys really need to Levelup their game. In the meantime, here's a pretty picture from The Elder Scrolls Online.

Most of you know Ron Perlman as Hellboy… I err mean the War, War never Changes guy. What you may not know is that he has a daughter, and she has a new release on iTunes. I wonder if she has a raspy voice like her dad?

Wrap

Relic of the War that wasn’t
Relic
Its been 30 years since the world didn’t end… Thanks to a few games that almost went a little bit too far.

In 1983, the US and its Nato Allies engaged in some war games exercises, as they do from time to time. As a part of “Able Archer 83”, 40,000 troops hit Western Europe to simulate a Soviet invasion of Yugoslavia, Finland, Norway and Greece, with the intensitiy of weapons being use increasing through conventional war and onto chemical and nuclear weapons.

1983 had already been a huge year in the Cold war - a Korean Airlines 737 had already been shot down when it strayed too close to the Soviet Union (killing 269 people), and Ronald Regan had already slammed the Soviets as running an “evil empire”. In addition, the “False Alarm” we reported earlier this year involving Lt Col Petrov had occurred just 2 months earlier.

This buildup of troops in Europe spooked the Soviets into thinking the war games might be a prelude to invasion - planes were fitted with nuclear arms, missiles were placed on alert, submarines were sent under the arctic ice to protect them and the simulated increases from DEFCON 5 to DEFCON 1 were mistakenly reported as being real by undercover KGB agents.… I guess noone told them that the soviets were the invaders in tis scenario.

The exercise started on November 2, and wound down on November 11. After learning that the soviets were worried about the manoeuvres being a prelude to war, President Regan is reported to have said “I don't see how they could believe that—but it’s something to think about”

(Thanks to NukaTurtle for the updated relic image. If you need artwork done, perhaps she can help you).
