I had my first run-in with the turn-based, Linux strategy game Battle for Wesnoth a few years ago. It was not long after discovering open source software, and I was incredibly impressed that a small group of developers could create such an excellent game for free. Discovering this along with Linux and the numerous GNU packages is what really piqued my interest in the world of open source.
Recently, I visited the Battle for Wesnoth's homepage and discovered they are need of fresh blood to keep the project rolling. Because I'm not skilled enough to contribute code, I decided to reach out to the developers, get their stories, and help spread the word about this fantastic project.
