Isaiah 53 (700 BC)

cross

Who has believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

2For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he has no stately form nor splendor; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

3He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

4Surely he has borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.

5But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

6All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

7He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.

8He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.

9And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

10Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he has put him to grief: when you shall make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring, he shall prolong his days, and the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

11He shall see the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.

12Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he has poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Get Adler: Whispers on Kickstarter

I’m getting ready to launch a new Kickstarter for our new expansion Get Adler: Whispers which is the expansion for the 7th and 8th players.

The 7th character is The Mole and the 8th character is French Agent Gigi Bonnet. Here is a sketch I did of the Mole a while ago when I invented him.

I had to find him today, because KS says it’s a good idea to show backers and those interested, your sketches. I showed a couple of the other character sketches when I launched Get Adler!

I’m really excited and a bit apprehensive to see how people react to Whispers. I think it is a very good expansion and adds some fun mechanics and rules. The Mole, of course, steals intelligence and tries to hand it over to Adler and Collins, while Bonnet tries to intercept the data and tip off her colleagues.

The apprehensive part is – is this the right time for the expansion. hmmm. We just funded Get Adler! and hope to have that game available in April. Should we have waited until it was out first? We will soon find out. Hopefully the videos and background info I put on KS will get people excited about Whispers.

As I was saying on the KS, I read a lot of interesting true stories about MI5 & MI6 moles and double-agents, so we are close to history on our story and game play.

I will come back and put our KS link here after we launch, and as always we will get some info and pics up on our website.
