You know, despite the fact that it’s October (and more than halfway through it, at that), we’ve had relatively few “creepy, crawly, spooky, and haunted” sort of stories. Well, this post looks to help turn the tide in a more Boris Karlof and Bella Legosi direction. The Hallowee...

Organized crime has a long and storied history in Britain. I mean, just watch a Guy Richie movie and you’ll know that. (whywouldIwantacaravanthataintgotnofookinwheelsonit?) In Gangs of Britannia, you’ll be in charge of one of those gangs, looking to expand your influence and take over mor...

I certainly hope that you find TGN a reputable news source. I do my best to not post rumors and only give you stories that I can back up with a source. However, with news, that’s not always the case. Some places are better sources than others, and who you trust can change over time. […]...

When I’m playing an RPG, I like to have the right miniature on the board to represent what the PCs are fighting. And I know my PCs like to have a mini that as closely as possible represents their character. As such, it’s always good to have more options available. And that’s what we...

I haven’t played a collectable game in quite some time. Mostly I’ve just not had the time to keep up with them. But back when I did, my favorite format to play in was draft. It’s seat-of-your-pants gaming. You go in not knowing what your deck was going to consist of and leave it to ...

The process to create models for a game is a long and complex one, with artists, sculptors, and producers going back and forth on designs until everything is juuuuuuust right… Or, at least, just right for the time. We’ve all looked back at older models from companies and gone, “Man,...

Longtime readers know I love it when a company posts a rulebook for their games online. You can check out the rules and see if the game’s for you. Also, having electronic versions of the book can really come in handy. In this case, the game is Wanted: Rich or Dead, an old-western shootout game ...

Just this past weekend, I re-watched one of my favorite movies: Predator 2. I nearly watched Alien, instead. And I still might do so sometime this week. Both, obviously, involve aliens going after humans, with heavy horror/action elements. And aliens, horror, and action is what you get in Aliens and ...

Wyrd keeps a nice, steady schedule for their previews. I can certainly appreciate that. I’m a big fan of routine. So, as it’s Monday, that means some new art to look at. In this case, it’s from the Through the Breach book, Above the Law. Check out the Commander....

Within the demonic hordes of the Uthuk Y’llan of Runewars, there are heroes. No, most of the outside world wouldn’t use that term to describe them, probably preferring something a bit more like, “grotesque monster” or “awful horror” or “not a really nice guy,...

We all love gaming (or, at least, I assume we all do, considering the website we’re on right now). However, it can often be hard to find others to game with. And sure, there’s plenty of solo games out there, but really, we want to hang out and play games with others. That’s not alwa...

Gotta, gotta get up to get down. Gotta, gotta get up to get down. Ok, really, that’s not the song that describes me at all. I’m much more, “I can’t dance. I can’t talk. The only thing about me is the way that I walk.” But even if you’re not a member of the fl...
