Friday Snippets

We’ve finally made it to Friday! I don’t know about you, but this was a really long week for me. Partially because I’ve been anxious to get back to playing D&D. Our second session will be tomorrow, and I can’t wait. Later today, I’m going to pick up snacks and whatnot for the game. But I also need to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories. And that’s just what we’ve got for you here.

Today on the platter is: New Orc Rokkets From Kromlech, Titan-Forge Taking Orders For Dragon Empire Minis, Late Pledges Open For Elder Dice, and Historical Metal Coins Up On Kickstarter.

World of Alessia Campaign Primer Up On Kickstarter

There’s a lot of settings out there that can feel rather “samey.” You know, there’s the elves and the orcs and the castles and the dragons.

It’s got technology. It’s got magic. It’s got… well, there’s still dragons, but dragons are cool. The Campaign Primer is up on Kickstarter now.

WizKids Announces Pathfinder Battles: Jungle of Despair Set

I just recently got into a new RPG group. The game takes place in a whole new world I’ve never played in before, with players I’ve never gamed with before. So it’ll be interesting to see how everything works out. The DM does use a gridded map for when we play, and brings out the minis for us to fight against. But with a game like that, it’s always tough to find just the right mini. Well, that’s where the plastic sets come in. In this case, WizKids has announced a new one. It’s Pathfinder Battles: Jungle of Despair.

Wow, Wednesday already? This week’s just rolling by. Not that I mind that, of course. I’ve got some D&D coming up this weekend, so you know that I’m stoked. So, here’s to hoping that the rest of the week jogs by quickly, too. But if we’re gonna be jogging, we’re gonna be burning up energy. If we’re gonna be burning up energy, we need to replace it.

Midweek Snippets

The middle of the week already? At least, it feels like I should add “already” to the end of that. Week seems to be going by quickly. As you all know, I’m certainly looking forward to the weekend. Hard to believe it’s already the 3rd weekend of the month, which means Board Game Day up at the library. I’ve had to miss a couple of the previous sessions, so I hope to make it for this one.

Sans Detour Launches Confrontation Classic Kickstarter
