My Life Is a Poem

Why words are a super power.

“I am a poem written by hip-hop. I was born from the poetic lives my parents lived and was raised in a tragic city.
My story unfolds under the crumbling infrastructure of Chicago’s Southside. I saw words everywhere and my attraction to them was magnetic. ‘Hands to the Heavens, / no man no weapon, / formed against, yes Glory is destined. / Everyday women and men become Legends, / Sins that go against our skin become blessings.'” -Rhymefest http://poet.ly/R9sGv

X-Wing Miniatures Game
With its pivotal role at the Battle of Yavin, the Incom Corporation T-65 X-wing fighter claimed its place in history. Boasting high-powered laser cannons, proton torpedo launchers, and a reinforced titanium-alloy hull, this solid and dependable craft has earned its reputation as a staple in the Rebel Alliance’s arsenal against the Galactic Empire.
Control the most advanced starfighters and outstanding pilots in the galaxy! In X-Wing Miniatures Game, you take the role of squad leader and command a group of merciless Imperial or daring Rebel pilots in furious ship-to-ship space combat.
Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space battles from small engagements of only a couple of crafts, to large conflicts where multiple squadrons clash. Select and equip your ships, pick your crew, plan your attack, and complete your mission.
