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.

Ironwatch Announces Release of Mawbeast Madness

Ironwatch might’ve started out as a fan magazine for Mantic’s games, but they’ve since branched out. In this instance, they’re announced their second miniatures game, Mawbeast Madness. You know those races where you see bunnies or tortoises or other non-standard-racing animals look to make it to the finish line? Think of that, but instead of cuddly rabbits, it’s vicious mawbeasts, with goblins looking to prod them along. Yeah, that’ll give you an idea of what you’re in for.

GCT Studios Previews New Bushido Artwork

GCT Studios continues to work on Bushido, and I, for one, am always excited about what they come up with. In this case, they’re coming out with a griffon. I don’t currently play the Kage Kaze Zoku faction… but I just might start up, what with getting a griffon and all.

Tarot Adventures, Book Two: Comet Over Echo Rock Kickstarter Coming in January

Sinopa Publishing has announced their next book in their Tarot Adventures line. The series, which draws its inspiration from the traditional Tarot deck, continues to the Comet Over Echo Rock adventure. As you all know, I’m a fan of pre-made adventures, as it gives the GM a lot of tools right at their fingertips. And having multiple missions all linked together can make it so quite a lot of gaming is done with minimal worry. Expect Comet Over Echo Rock to hit Kickstarter in January.

Latest Kensei/Torii Releases Available From Zenit Miniatures

You know, most people associate October with the undead, but December certainly has a lot of ghosts as well. The cold can certainly feel like it’s sucking the life out of you. I can’t say that it’s what happened to all these undead units that are now available for Kensei from Zenit Miniatures, but still, undead things headed your way.

Skirmisher Publishing Releases Coldblooded: A Player’s Guide to Lizardmen

While there’s certainly nothing wrong with playing a character in an RPG that’s an elf or a dwarf or a human or a halfling, but, for me, I always liked getting a bit more creative with it. Minotaurs, goliaths, and such like that. Well, if you want something a bit more scaly, Skirmisher Publishing has released Coldblooded: A Player’s Guide to Lizardmen.

A cold wind is blowing here in Atlanta. Yes, I know many of you are much colder than we are here, but it was also almost 70F out yesterday. Today it’ll be closer to 45F.

Those Dam Goblins RPG Adventure Up On Kickstarter

It seemed like a nice place, at the time. A valley that had a bit of a swamp problem, but nothing that couldn’t be fixed without a little dam. It turned the valley into a rather productive one, agriculturally-speaking. But now, there’s rumbling in the hills around the valley. Goblins.
Those Dam Goblins is a new fantasy adventure for various systems that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Masters and Minions 5th Edition Supplement Up On Kickstarter

Few villains work alone. You’ve got the leader of a criminal organization and their hordes of underlings. Or a cult leader and all their cultists. Or a dragon and all their dragonlings. Whatever the case, you have a Master and Minions, and that’s also what we’ve got in this 5th edition supplement that’s up on Kickstarter. Masters and Minions gives GMs stats and rules for using NPCs and villains, along with their followers, in your games.

Wyrmkeep Dungeons BW3: The Beast Below D&D Adventure Up On Kickstarter

I’m a big fan of anything that makes the job of a GM easier. Having been one, in many game systems, for decades at this point, I love when I get something that streamlines the process for everyone. And pre-made adventures are great at that. In this case, we’ve got The Best Below, a 5th Edition adventure for characters of 1st to 3rd level. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

Conan the Mercenary Sourcebook Now Available

Friday Snippets

I’ve almost run out of Thanksgiving leftovers. I still have some turkey and some sweet potato casserole, along with just a touch of one pumpkin pie left. BTW: the sweet potatoes still being around are a case of “Save the best for last.” Not to sound haughty, but trying some of it, with a bit of my homemade salted caramel literally had one guest weeping tears of joy. I have witnesses! We’re also snacking on some bite-sized gaming stories. Pretty quick one for you today.

On the platter we have: Atlantis Miniatures: Mythology Busting Through Stretch Goals, Greebo Previews Exclusive Christmas Miniature, and Gunfighter’s Ball Kickstarter Update.

It’s by Mindjammer Press, the same folks behind Mindjammer (as one would expect). But, instead of the stars, its the sands that you’ll be exploring for all manner of adventure and excitement.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve still got tons of leftovers from Thanksgiving. That was by design, mind you, and the original intent behind Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder that I had last Friday. And no, I’m not getting tired of turkey and all the trimmings. However, it wouldn’t hurt to nibble on something different for a moment. That’s why we’ve got a whole bunch of bite-sized gaming stories for you to snack on.

Monday Terrain Corner

So, I’m back in the office after one of the greatest Thanksgiving breaks I’ve ever had. Thursday I was at my friend’s place. We gamed. We had turkey. We watched football. It was amazing. Friday, I had friends over at my place for Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder. We games more. We had more turkey. We… didn’t watch football, but we did play Mario Kart… which is nothing like football, but still… And then Saturday I went to a game shop in Alabama to play Guild Ball and put together a Gundam model, then went out for authentic German food. Sunday I rested (I really needed it by then).
It. Was. Amazing.

And today, I’m back in the office, playing hella-catch-up because I basically didn’t touch anything work-related for around 96 hours. 😛

Anyway, lets get your gaming tables looking as good as our dinner tables from a couple days ago.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: DungeonWorks 3D Printed Terrain Up On Kickstarter and New 15mm Scale Meadow Battlefield From Deep-Cut Studio.

GCT Studios Previews New Wave 38 Artwork, Gives Company Update

GCT Studios has gone through some changes in the past year. There’s been an upswing in players, and this has led to greater resources for those behind the company. However, it also means more time devoted to the product, which can be hard. It’s sad to say that one of the founders, Toby, has left. However, Odin and Gordon are working harder than ever, and they’ve got a look at some Bushido Wave 38 artwork to prove it.

Monday Terrain Corner

This is gonna be a pretty short week for me. It’s like it’s already Wednesday, in a way, since there’s only 2 more days after this to the weekend. But it’s not actually Wednesday. It’s Monday. As such, that means my Robin Hood/Star Wars shirt and a Terrain Corner, rather than my Ministry of Silly Walks shirt and a Snippets.

Fantasy Flight Previews Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit For Runewars

Even rampaging hordes have those individuals at the front, directing it. It’s no good to have a whole army of slathering monsters and soldiers if they’re headed off in the wrong direction. That’s where the Uthuk Y’llan Infantry Command Unit comes in. They’ll make sure all that destructive effort goes in the right direction. We get a preview of them here from Fantasy Flight.

Fridaaaaaaay! And man, I worked like mad yesterday, but there’s still tons to do. And you should see what my grocery list looks like for tomorrow. We’ll see if I can fit everything into my little Chevy Aveo. I might have to do it in two goes. But that’s for tomorrow (and into next week).

Aglaeca Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

You might not think about it, but there’s a lot of different levels of fantasy RPG that you can play in. You can go for more of the high-fantasy that’s very Tolkienesque. Or you can go for the more non-fantasy fantasy settings along the lines of Howard. Aglaeca falls into that second category. It draws its inspiration from various ancient, dark age, and medieval European settings, giving you a darker and grittier gaming experience. It’s also up on Kickstarter now.

Fantasy Flight Games Previews Quests in Legacy of Dragonholt

So, there’s been some discussion about what, exactly, Legacy of Dragonholt. It’s not quite an RPG. It’s not quite a board game. It’s sort of in its own category. As such, you might wonder, “so, what do you do in the game?” Well, in this preview Fantasy Flight shows off what quests are like in the game. So grab your gear and let’s go.

All Out War: Battleground Minis Game Up On Kickstarter

You’ve got tabletop minis games. You’ve also got real-time strategy games. But what if you got your minis game into your real-time strategy game and your real-time strategy game into your minis game?

Midweek Snippets

The week continues along. We’re halfway to the end. Just gotta put our heads down and power through. Not that the week’s been terrible, mind you. Just busy.

Northern Alliance Added to Kings of War: Vanguard Kickstarter

It’s getting cold out. Some people are more used to cold than others. Those that live in the cold, northern part of Mantica are certainly used to it. But they are heading south, looking to get some feeling back into their fingers. As such, the Northern Alliance is making its way into the Kings of War: Vanguard Kickstarter campaign.

Monday Terrain Corner

The Monday after a long weekend… I mean, I know many of you out there love what you do for a living (as I certainly do), but there’s always just a bit of “erf…” about the Monday after a long weekend. An extra smack of the snooze button. An extra long shower. An extra cup of coffee. You know how it goes. Eventually, we’ll make it back around to the weekend. But, in the meantime, let’s make sure that when we do get to game again, we’ll have some good-looking gaming tables.

Ponyfinder: Hidden Draft Book Now Available

Many of us know about the three main types of ponies: pegasi, unicorns, and earth ponies. Some of you might also know about gem ponies and a couple other types. Well, the Hidden Draft book for Ponyfinder gives us another type: The Krava.
