The previous announcement about the upcoming Fallout minis game was pretty bare-bones, just like a skeleton that you find out in the wastes. But it’s getting a bit fleshed out, with some more info about the game as well as some new renders of a couple of the figures....

I get the appeal of digital forms for a game book. I really do. Heck, I’m often looking at them every day here on my computer. However, I will always still love to have a hard copy of a book to look through. Just something about actually turning the pages and the feel of it. […]...

There are some core game books out there that give you both the player’s and GM’s info all in one book. Those are cool, and I can see how it’s really helpful, but sometimes it’s a bit overkill. That’s where just a player’s guide can come in. And that’s what M...

Well, earlier today we had the announcement of the new Pathfinder unpainted minis. But what if you’re playing a bit more spacey? … That doesn’t sound quite right, but you know what I mean. What if you’ve traded in your bow and arrow for a laser blaster and your horse and wagon...

As a DM, I can certainly appreciate the pre-made adventures for RPGs. I didn’t have much time to work on my game that was supposed to run on Saturday. I’m actually a little thankful we didn’t end up playing (we played various board games instead), as I’d not even had a chance ...

Symbaroum is one of the hottest fantasy RPGs out there, with players and GMs looking to get more resources to immerse themselves in the setting. And, as I have said many times before, there’s no such thing as having too many resources for the GM. As such, the folks over at Modiphius have releas...

Back when Modiphius announced their Rise of the Black Sun Campaign for Achtung! Cthulhu Skirmish, there was a question about the main rulebook for the game. I did a small hunt, but didn’t find anything. Reason was, the main rulebook apparently wasn’t out yet. Well, that’s not the ca...
