Midweek Snippets

It’s a cold and snowy day here over in Atlanta. A thin layer of ice is concealed under a small blanket of snow. As such, it’s “work from home” day for the bear. Atlantans tend to have rather dubious driving skills in ideal conditions. Throw in some ice and snow and it’s not so much a matter of being worried about your own car, it’s everyone else flying in every direction you’ve gotta worry about. So I’ll just sit here and snack on some bite-sized gaming stories from the comfort of my den.

On the platter today we have: Reptilian Overlords Releases Enemy Trooper Heads, Dark Art Studios January Sale Happening Now, Daughters of the Orphanage Coming From Raging Heroes, HeresyLab Bringing New Sci-Fi Minis to Kickstarter Soon, and Brigade Models Releases New 15mm Hammer’s Slammers Vehicles.

The weekend is almost upon us! I’m already getting my gaming on today. I’ll be playing some of the Munchkin CCG, as well as perhaps some of the Fallout board game. That’s before I go over to a friend’s place tomorrow to deliver some late Christmas presents (ok, really late)… they’re games. So hopefully we’ll play them some. But if I’m going to be doing all this gaming, I should be well-fed. Good thing I’ve got some gaming stories to nosh on. Including cotton candy dice. Yes, I ordered these dice this morning. #NoSuchThingAsTooManyDice

Confrontation Classic Coming to Kickstarter Next Year

I remember when Confrontation first came out. At the time, at my LGS, all we really had were GW games. Then Confrontation and Warmachine showed up at basically the same time and split the community almost down the middle. I tried a little bit of both. However, as time went on, Confrontation ebbed away while Warmachine kept on the rise. Many people miss the Confrontation system. Well, next year, their wait for its return will be over. The game will be making its way to Kickstarter for a rebirth.

On the Shoulders of Heroes Fantasy RPG Setting Up On Kickstarter

I know a lot of people love 5th Edition, but my heart will always be with 3.5th Edition. If someone’s down for a game, it’s the system I prefer. And, thankfully, I’m not alone. There’s still new material coming out that’s designed to work within that system. For example, there’s On the Shoulders of Heroes, a new fantasy RPG setting, incorporating classic Tolkien-esque motifs, but also bringing in influences from German and Japanese folklore. The campaign book is up on Kickstarter now.

Midweek Snippets

I did soooo much baking over the weekend.
*someone from the audience shouts out “How much baking did you do!?”*
I did so much that there’s still some of various treats left, even though there’s been a steady stream of coworkers out to the tables where they reside. Though we’re getting down to the last bits. I think it’s just a bit of fruitcake and the candy cane cookies left.
So, in lieu of trying to send those through the screen so you can try them, how about I just give you some tasty, bite-sized gaming stories, instead? Sounds like a plan.

Today on the platter we have: New Annihilation Beamer Available From Kromlech, The Goblin Sorcerer Paper Model Up On Kickstarter, Rebel Minis Christmas Sale Happening Now, and Mother of Dragons Resin Kit Up On Kickstarter.

Dragon Scales Scalable Dungeons Up On Kickstarter

I often talk about how useful pre-made adventures are. I’ll even mention how a good GM can use one that’s not quite right for their game, possibly because of the level of the dungeon, and fudge it to make it work. Well, the folks at Arcadian Games don’t want to make it so you have to do that fudging. They’ve got a set of adventures up on Kickstarter that they’ve also made scalable. So if you need it for a different level than your group is, it’s already factored in.

Skirmisher Publishing Releases The Mutant Race Player’s Guide

Whenever DNA divides, there’s a chance that an error might be made, and the sequences aren’t 100% like they had been. When those new DNA bits recombine, it’s a mutation. Many times, mutations are bad. But, just occasionally, they can really cause some interesting and possibly beneficial things to happen in the organism. That’s where the Mutants come in. And if you want to play one in your Pathfinder games, Skirmisher Publishing has a whole player’s guide for you to check out.

D&D Icons of the Realms: Classic Creatures Now Available From WizKids

I love to use minis when doing my RPGs. It gives everyone a sense of where people are in the encounters, as well as can help make things feel a bit more “real.” What I hate is when I have to use the wrong mini for something because I don’t have the right one. Or you’ve got several that all look the same and you mix up which is which. Well, WizKids is here to help, as they’ve released their D&D Icons of the Realms: Classic Creatures set. This brings a bunch of baddies to your tabletops with new sculpts to help them stand out from previous iterations.

Midweek Snippets

I just realized this morning that this upcoming weekend is the last one before Christmas.
Ok, so, technically Christmas has one more weekend before it, but since it falls on a Monday, it means this upcoming week is the last one before the holiday. As such, I’ve just now realized how much baking I need to do (since that’s what I give as presents to friends).

But before I get to those tasty treats, let’s get to today’s tasty treats in terms of bite-sized gaming stories.

Tails of Equestria Movie Sourcebook Now Available From River Horse

Sad news: my MLP RP that I’ve been running here at the office is on hiatus until the new year. Things are just too busy and since we played on Mondays, and the next two major holidays are on Monday, we’ll pick back up the second week of January. However, that does mean that I’ll have time to pick up the My Little Pony – The Movie Official Sourcebook for the Tails of Equestria game (well, I’ll get a friend over in the UK to pick it up for me, since the North American release through Ninja Division isn’t quite here yet). The book is available now.
