Path of the Black Flag Pathfinder Supplement Up On Kickstarter

One of the series I watch on YouTube is Renegade Cut. Recently, they had a video about Anarchy as it pertains to the movie V for Vendetta. Anarchy isn’t quite what most of us think about, at least not in its traditional sense. And while I can’t say that I’m an Anarchist, it’s interesting to read about. Even if you’re not an Anarchist, either, you might want to bring some Anarchy into your RPGs. The Path of the Black Flag supplement for Pathfinder will let you do just that. It’s up on Kickstarter now.
Listening to the Sex Pistols not required while reading their pitch… but it helps.

Modiphius Running John Carter of Mars RPG Kickstarter

Every day, we get new news from the surface of Mars. A new rock formation is found that might hint at life once thriving on the red planet. As exciting as that is… it’s also just a bit disappointing, considering what we had hoped to find. Certainly authors in times gone by (and many now) still see Mars as a thriving world, full of canals and civilizations. One of the most popular “life on Mars” series was John Carter. Now, you’ll be able to join in the adventures of John on Barsoom (aka – Mars) with the John Carter of Mars – Adventures on the Dying World of Barsoom RPG, brought to you by Modiphius, which is up on Kickstarter now.

Man, for a second there, I almost put in “Thursday Terrain Corner” as the title. Settle down there, bear. The week’s not going by that quickly. But it is continuing along. And being busy is helping make it feel like it’s going. Though I am happy to say it’s not Thursday yet, considering stuff I still need to get done. And if I’m going to be doing all the things (!!!!), I’ll need to be well-supplied with energy. Snacking on some bite-size gaming stories should help.

Today on the platter we have: FlexTale Encounter Generator Up On Kickstarter, and The Painting Frog Talks about GW In South America.
