Monday Terrain Corner

It’s Monday. And, to be honest, it was a not-at-all-gaming-related weekend for me. Sometimes you gotta take a break, y’know? For me, that included hanging out at home and watching Lost in Vegas. I came across their YouTube channel early last week and have just been going through their back catalog. I love their Free Thinkers motto. Even things you aren’t used to, you should give it a shot. And if you don’t like something, you can still express your opinion in a way that doesn’t degrade or belittle those that do like it. And you can still see value in things that you might not like. Just awesome, all around. So, if you wanna check ’em out, that’s what I was doing when I wasn’t doing gaming. But gaming is what we’ve got here today, and that includes making your gaming table look good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Heroic Maps Releases Geomorphs: Basic Cave and LaserCutCard Previews New Containers.

Android NetRunner Coming to an End

I know we don’t do much in terms of Living Card Games here on TGN. Or not-stand-alone card games, of any form, but still, I wanted to post this one up, as I did when the game was announced. Fantasy Flight Games is closing down their Android: NetRunner game. I’m saddened by this, as NetRunner is my favorite card game that’s existed. And it’s a bit of a could’ve/would’ve/should’ve for me, as I’d not been keeping up with the game as I’d really wanted to. But there was always kind of that thought that I’d jump into it. Well, that probably won’t be the case. Sure, I could pick up cards probably for cheap now, but finding players is always the most difficult thing, and most people aren’t excited to play a dead game.

Today on the platter we have: Fantasy Flight Coming Out With Premium Bases For Star Wars: Legion, New Bolt Action Dice Bags Available From Warlord Games, and New Dog Minis Available From Tabletop-Art.

WizKids Announces D&D Icons of the Realms: Waterdeep Dragon Heist

When playing an RPG, I know that I like to have figures that represent what we’re fighting and for our characters out on the table. Sure, you could just throw anything out there and call it good, but if we’re fighting dudes in armor with mauls, I want minis of dudes in armor with mauls. If we’re fighting ghosts, I want minis of ghosts. And so forth and so on. Sometimes it can be hard to find just the mini you want, so having more is always helpful. Thankfully, there’s always new sets of figures coming out, such as D&D Icons of the Realms: Waterdeep Dragon Heist from WizKids.

Fantasy Flight Previews Lando’s Falcon For X-Wing

For many of you out there, I’m sure you’ve gone to see the new Solo movie (whether you saw it with other people or not). In it, we get a bunch of background on Star Wars‘ most famous smuggler, along with how he got the iconic ship, The Millennium Falcon. Well, back when Lando had it, it was much different looking. And that version will be making its way to X-Wing tabletops. We get a look at it in this preview (note: if you’ve not seen the movie and are one of those “OMG! If I know even more than just the title of the movie, the whole thing is ruined and my life is OVER!” types, I don’t know if there’s any spoilers about the film, but you’ve been possibly warned. Don’t come cryin’ to me).

Fantasy Flight Announces Heroes of Terrinoth Card Game

Those dungeons aren’t going to delve themselves. Those goblins aren’t going to just stop raiding the local towns. Those monsters aren’t just going to decide they don’t want to smash everything in existence. Those evil wizards aren’t going to suddenly decide to not take over the world. That’s why Terrinoth needs heroes. And that’s just what you’ll become in Heroes of Terrinoth, a new cooperative card game coming from Fantasy Flight Games.

Thursday Terrain Corner

The work week continues along. We’ve made it to Thursday. We can make it the rest of the way. I’ve been realizing the last couple days that I have absolutely nothing planned for this weekend. Which, after several that were pretty busy, might be just up my alley. I’m sure I’ll fill the time up with something. But what I’m filling your feed up with at the moment is terrain stories.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: High Edgmoor Hall Map Available From Heroic Maps, Acheson Creations 20% Sale on New Adventurer’s Corner Product Category, and New Maps Coming From Paizo.
