Now when I was just a little boy, standin’ to my Daddy’s knee My Poppa said, “son don’t let the man get you and do what he done to me.” Ok, my dad never actually said that. But I can’t read “Into the Bayou” without thinking of some CCR. Well, whether yo...

Pretty much every gamer out there knows of Kingdom Death. The original Kickstarter campaign made over $2mil. But then… oh the troubles. It was one of the campaigns that took the longest to actually deliver. However, from all I’ve seen, it was worth the wait… and worth the weight, si...

Grin: A Darker Age, is a free horror RPG game where all the rules for it fit on a single sheet of paper. Being a horror RPG, the chances for your character to make it out alive are somewhat slim. Monsters and madmen stalk the dark places and are just waiting to pounce out and […]...

Sometimes you see a game world that you think is really cool, but you’re not sure you can get your group to try it out because it’s not a system they like using. Sure, you could do your best to convert everything over to an equivalent in your group’s desired system, but that can be ...

Sometimes you just don’t have the ability to get in on a Kickstarter campaign while it’s running. You might miss the announcement or just not have the funds at the time or whatever other million reasons are out there. During the backerkit portion, you might still miss out. That’s al...

While I think that October is my favorite month, November holds my favorite holiday: Thanksgiving. Though, anymore, you can’t talk about Thanksgiving without talking about the day after Thanksgiving. Yes, Black Friday, when the Christmas Shopping season officially begins. Well, the folks at Wyr...

Something is not right at the boarding school. The children are acting a little… weird. Something has taken them over, something nobody can fully explain. While the Priest says he has ways to help, most just want to deal with any children thought to be possessed with slightly… quicker mea...

Well, the zombie apocalypse has happened again. You and your fellow survivors must go and collect resources you need to survive while avoiding the walking dead. Collect what you need and get out and you win. Get eaten and… well… don’t get eaten....

Not sure why, but this week’s been a time enigma. I woke up this morning going, “wow, already Wednesday!” But since I’ve been here at the office, it’s been the exact opposite. “How is it only 10am? I feel like I’ve been here forever!” What might help is...

Most of us know about the 7 Deadly Sins. You know. Stuff like Greed, Gluttony, Sloth, and such like that. Well, what if they weren’t just philosophical concepts but were actual, living, breathing things? And what if they were looking to take over the world? That… would be pretty bad. And ...

October is pretty much the perfect month for Wyrd. Malifaux certainly has a Halloween-esque vibe running through it. The company knows it and so has plenty of stuff going on. They’ve posted up their October newsletter so you can catch a look at what all is happening....

At the bottom of the ocean, a mysterious sphere has been found. Nobody knows where it’s come from or its purpose here on Earth. One thing is known, though. It takes the human mind and twists it, warps it, and changes it. Now, an entire deep-sea mining facility has been corrupted. Will you survi...

A parent can think of little worse than the loss of a child. One such rather wealthy couple has had their daughter stolen away from them. They’ve put out a call to anyone who might be able to track down and find out what happened, and hopefully bring the daughter back safe and sound. Unfortunat...

I totally failed to realize that yesterday was the first day of autumn. So it’s officially ok to start talking about all things spooky and scary. Pumpkin-flavored everything! The latest releases for Black Plague fit the first thing fairly well. Though I wouldn’t suggest trying to find out...

When you were a kid, how much did you wish all the parents would just suddenly disappear and you could just do whatever you wanted? I’m guessing a lot of you felt that way, but the actual prospect of such a thing happening would really be quite terrifying. You wake up and suddenly find out [&he...

Everybody go crazy! There’s a new adventure for Call of Cthulhu up on Kickstarter! Ok, maybe don’t go crazy, literally. That would inhibit your playing ability. Though, being Call of Cthulhu, it’s highly likely that your character will go crazy. That’s just sort of par for the...

Wyrd’s doing a bit of batch-bundling with their stories, which is alright with me. They’ve got a new issue of their Wyrd Chronicles magazine that you can read over, hopefully escaping from this nasty heat that’s still outside (at least, nasty heat here in Atlanta). They’ve als...

There’s all sorts of reasons why you might miss out on a Kickstarter. Perhaps you just didn’t have the funds at the time, or you were out of town when the campaign was going and missed the announcement for it, or you’ve since decided you wished you’d been on it. Well, thankful...

With the zombie apocalypse, there’s bound to be those that haven’t yet been eaten or infected. There wouldn’t be much of a story otherwise. You’d just have zombies milling around going, “braaaaaaains.” Not exactly engaging for a story, film, or game. So, it’s...

We’ve made it to Thursday, everyone. Is it just me or has the week sort of slowed to a halt? I think it’s because next week’s going to be a short one. As such, we have to make this week longer to compensate. Otherwise, space-time and all that gets messed up. Thankfully, Powerhouse i...
