Luminous Echo: The Forgotten King Extended Campaign Book on Kickstarter

Just. One. More. Stretch. Goal!
That’s how a lot of companies and backers feel about campaigns. It seems there’s always just that one extra cool thing you want to add. Sometimes you make it there. Other times, you fall a bit short.

Thursday Terrain Corner

Man, most of yesterday, I felt like it was Thursday. This morning, I was thinking, “man, it’s Friday. Nice.” And then I realized that sad truth: the weekend was still another day away. Probably doesn’t help that I’ve not been feeling all that great the last day or so. So I’m hoping for the weekend to hopefully get over whatever I might be picking up. But that’s as may be.

Vosteros RPG Up On Kickstarter

What if what we know as existence was just one of three that were originally created long ago? And what if the creator wasn’t so happy with how the three were shaping up?

That series is being turned into an RPG, which is up on Kickstarter now.

Deadline Now Available From WizKids

I deal with deadlines every day. Hell, I sort of have one every hour from 9am to 6pm, M-F. I make it, most of the time.

For that, I would have to go play Deadline, the new investigation card game from WizKids, which is available now.
