TGN Sunday Edition

Welcome to Sunday. We’re glad to have you here. I hope your Saturday was good. Mine involved a Battle Chef cutting down raiders with a Horse Butcher. It was a good time. “Here, eat this.” is apparently going to be a catchprase for him, especially when dealing with the Intelligence 8 Half-Orc Barbarian that’s also part of the party.

But that’s as may be. Let’s get on to a sampler of bite-sized stories for your Sunday afternoon.

A quick one for you today. This batch includes: Happy Seppuku’s Base and Terrain Stamp Upgrade Kickstarter, The Deathless Unlocked in Panzerfauste, and the final week for Smoking Aces on Kickstarter.

Panzerfäuste: Mechanised Warfare in a Mythical Realm Up On Kickstarter

What would the battle of Helm’s Deep be like if the Elves had machine guns? What if the Orcs had grenades (you know… besides that one big one)? What if Hobbits came with towed artillery? That’s answered with games of Panzerfauste. The game takes place in an alternate WWI-esque world where there’s more than just humans. There’s dwarves and orcs and elves and all that fun kind of stuff. They’re up on Kickstarter now and looking for some funding love.

Weird War II is a fairly popular setting. Taking all that happened in WWII and adding in the supernatural adds even deeper twists and turns to the events of the conflict. Other games deal with what’s happening down on the ground. Dark Skies 1942 takes you into the… well… dark skies over the battlefields. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

West Wind Productions Launches Secrets of the Third Reich 2nd Edition Kickstarter

Real-world conspiracy theorists love to talk about all the strange things that the Nazis were trying to do during WWII. It’s well-known that Hitler was interested in ancient (sometimes occult) artifacts and pushing the envelope on science. Well, what if all that was even more true and it all worked? Weird War II is a rather popular setting. One of the games many people have played in the setting is West Wind Productions’ Secrets of the Third Reich. Well, now WWP is running a Kickstarter campaign for a 2nd edition of their game.
