When it comes to RPGs, I don’t normally make face-beaters. You know, the big fighter/barbarian that does a bajillion damage with each swing. I’m more likely to play the Bard or something like that. The kind of character that’ll win a battle without making more than diplomacy checks....

When we think of the Great Old Ones and the Cthulhu mythos, it’s usually gruesome murders and horrific mind-melting insanity that we picture as the possible outcomes. Well, in Cities in Ruin, things go a bit more large-scale in terms of destruction. The Disaster Deck will have you diving for co...

The Rebels and Imperials both have a pair of the huge-sized ships for X-Wing (still need to get me a Tantiv-IV just to have around). Well, Scum & Villainy players won’t have to be envious for too much longer. They are getting their own huge ship, the C-ROC Cruiser. We get a look inside it [...

First part of the weekend is already a success. The pizza last night was pretty much everything I could’ve hoped for. It’s nice when a week-long cooking project turns out good (ok, the pizza doesn’t really take a week to make, but parts I was able to do ahead of time like render the...

Ah, Saturday. Don’t know about you, but I’m going to be putting together a pair of Guild Ball players (Granite and Veteran Siren) that Ray picked up for me at LVO. Then I’m gonna make my own protein bars (like Clif bars, for those that know about them) since I’m trying to get ...

The powers of the Great Old Ones are… well… great. Those that look to undo their nefarious schemes must be strong as steel mentally, physically, and emotionally. Any less and you’re left a gibbering waste or a red smear on the pavement. It takes a special kind of person to do it, an...

There’s a lot of not-so-great people in the Star Wars universe, and someone has to bring them to justice. The various police forces can’t always keep up, so it’s up to the bounty hunters in order to get the job done. And if they pick up some money on the side by doing jobs for [&hel...

In the past, a lot of miniatures games were simply, “beat the crap out of your opponent” in terms of victory conditions. Last figure standing, wins. We’ve been steadily moving away from that for a while now, with scenarios and objectives that your army is looking to score in order t...

When out in the middle of the ocean, you might think that coming across an island would be a good thing. Heck, you might even be out there looking for clues to a mystery, clues that might be on that island. But you might not want to celebrate when the lookout shouts, “Land ho!” Instead, [...

The truth is out there. In some way, all of us want to know it. What’s actually happening in the world? What are the honest facts, instead of just the spin we see in the media? At least, we think we want to know. There are some things out there it’s probably best that we […]...

Droids are an everyday part of the Star Wars world. They’re basically everywhere, filling in roles in all parts of life. As such, they should also be pretty common in the various games made about the universe. And it’s not just the more well-known ones such as R2-D2 and C-3PO, either. Wit...

I remember playing the original Doom video game at my neighbor’s house. My friend had the game and we played all the time. You really could die pretty easily in it, and we very often did. That was good, of course, since it meant you weren’t far from having your own turn playing. And who [...

It was quite a big deal when the Rebels got their first huge-sized ship for X-Wing. I’ve still been meaning to pick up a Tantiv-IV, just because it’s a cool model, even though I don’t regularly play X-Wing anymore. A while later, the Imperials got their epic ship. But the game has 3...
