Game as complex as the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game are always moving and growing. What a game designer and playtest group might decide is good for an initial release might not end up being the best thing in the end, and so tweaks need to be made. That's what gets you a healthy game. Well, CMON wants their minis game to be healthy, so they've posted an update. Have yourself a look and make sure you're using the most up-to-date rules.

A new anthology book of adventures is available to order from River Horse for Tails of Equestria.

Will your ponies be able to solve a myriad of issues, each of which will test them in new and exciting ways? Find out when you get your copy.

Awight! I shaw wewease... WOGAAAH!!!

I guess we now know who at least let this particular dog out. Roger's a big, happy, babypuppy pitty (with that giant bowling ball head that they have), and he just looks so happy to be here. Or, at least, he will be happy to be here when Painting Polygons launches their Animal Adventures: Secrets of Gullet Cove Kickstarter campaign in just a couple days.

And the award for "most interesting title of the day" goes to The Forgotten Rights of the Moldering Dead, an RPG supplement that's all about giving you more information about that most classic of RPG monsters: undead. But not just a monster book, there's all sorts of things in there, including funerary rights, laments, processions and celebrations, and many ways to update the undead in your games. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

A GM can never have too many resources at their fingertips when running a game. That's my honest opinion. Creating everything from scratch is hard, so having pre-made monsters of all type, in particular, is very helpful. That's where the people of Carwood Publishing come in with thier Monsters of the City series of books. There's a new one up on Kickstarter called Sins & Virtues that has 100 more pre-made monsters for you to throw at your party.

Wednesday already. I love when a work week seems to go by quickly. I'm excited today because on a truck right now is a whole ton of hot sauce from what I am hoping becomes one of my favorite hot-sauce makers. We shall see.

It's always important to make sure you have the most up-to-date rules for the games you play. There might be something that's not working entirely as intended and the game designers are trying to fix it. That's what we've got here for the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. CMON's posted an updated for the Free Folk and Night's Watch factions that has some adjustments in the units and how they work.

Many people all over the world are Polytheistic. That means that there's multiple gods that they will pray to on a regular basis, and possibly many more that they believe in but don't specifically worship. While many fantasy realms are polytheistic ones, most RPGs still expect your characters to simply follow one. But what if you want a polytheistic character? Well, in the upcoming Lost Omens Gods & Magic book from Paizo for Pathfinder, you'll be able to do that.

Who's a good boy? Who's a good boy!?!

Well, if anyone is, it's probably Reximus, the Doberman Paladin. Paladins tend to be well into the "good" side of the alignment chart, at least. Reximus will be one of the new doggos coming in Animal Adventures: Secrets of Gullet Cove, the new adventure from Painting Polygons as part of their Dungeons & Doggies line, coming to Kickstarter in a week.

The Kickstarter campaign for the next Animal Adventures book, Secrets of Gullet Cove, draws ever closer. As it draws near, Painting Polygons is showing off some of the figures that will be inside. This time around, we get Bartolomy, the bard. Though not one to sing, he does tell tales and weave poems for the enjoyment of all around.

And he's got just the biggest floopears ever!

Wizards of the Coast has announced a new book for Dungeons & Dragons.

In just under 2 weeks (twooooooooooo weeks!), players will have a new adventure to go on in the epic world of Symbaroum. Free League Publishing has announced Symbar - Mother of Darkness, their next adventure in the Chronicle of the Crown of Thorns adventure path. Though, even if you're not playing along the entire way, GMs can certainly find a way to introduce the concepts into their games.

Along with the book, there's going to be a new GM screen, a map, and another softcover book coming that day. Let's check it out.

It's the middle of the week already. This one's been going by quickly, as did last week. Though, this time around, I can't blame being zonked out on cough syrup as to why chunks of time seem to just disappear. I'm continuing to feel better. Still have tissues here for the occasional stuffy nose, but I hope to be 100% over this by tomorrow or Friday. Definitely by the weekend wherein I'll be... ... umm... not really doing much. Ah well, I can still snack on some bite-sized gaming stories as I work my way there.

Today on the platter we have: Animal STL Files For RPGs up on Kickstarter, Masters Volume 1 Printable Sci-Fi Minis Up On Kickstarte, and Dragon Scale Dice Up On Kickstarter.

This post is just setting off all my Primus senses. Extinction Curse is like Extinction Burst. The circus makes me think of Mr. Krinkle and Prof. Nutbutter. It's just all going on. But while I have rockin' bass licks going through my brain, let's talk about the free-to-download Extinction Curse Player's Guide now available from Paizo. If you're playing on the adventure path of the same name, this is an invaluable resource. But even if you're not, it's new options for your characters. So, why not check it out?

Todaaaaaaaay's going to be the greeeeeeeeeeeeeeatest day of your liiiiiiiiiiiiiiife!

What happens when the test subjects realize that they're test subjects? Will they continue on in captivity and help with the research? Or will they break out of their isolation? That's up to you to decide in Fungi Fight for Freedom, a new adventure for the Endless Realms RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

Skirmisher Publishing knows that being a GM is rough. You've gotta build entire worlds, including rather intricate cities. Their City Builder series of books is designed to help out, and they've been working at updating them for a while now. In this instance, they have the newly-updated Armories, Blacksmithies, & Other Craftsman Places book (City Builder Volume 2, for short) that you can download now.

Dig in the dark is a gas. Baby, can you dig it?

Everyone knows about the residents on the land in Everglow. And they even know about the societies that reside up in the air above it. But what about those civilizations that are deep underground?

Praying to the gods is a major part of many character's stories in Pathfinder. And not just the Clerics and Paladins who have dedicated their life to their deity of choice. But how should GMs handle it when deus ex machina comes a-callin'? In the upcoming Lost Omens Gods and Magic book, there's what are called Divine Intercessions. In this article, we get a look at just how they work.
