Some More Adepticon Photos

It’s day 3 here at Adepticon. It’s been a wild day… and I’m not even talking about the gaming. We woke up to some lovely weather. And then, just about 10min. ago, for about a minute, the lights all went out in the dealer’s hall/gaming area. I just missed snapping a photo of everyone gaming for a moment via cellphone flashlight.

Anyway, what I did grab photos of were… a bunch of things.

Ninja Division Launches Ninja All-Stars Kickstarter

Ninja Division has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Ninja All-Stars, their new miniatures board game. The figures come pre-assembled, so those of you that are more “board game geeks” as opposed to “miniatures geeks” don’t have to worry about cracking open the box the first time you want to play and having to spend hours with cyanoacrylate.
In the game, players control ninjas from one of 6 rival clans. They’re all participating in the Moonlight Tournament in order to win the favor of the Moon Princess.
Will you come out ahead and be mooned? … wait… I don’t think that’s quite the right terminology.
Anyway, the Kickstarter will be up for the next 28 days.

Ninja Division Posts Fluff behind Ninja All-Stars

Ninja Division has a bit more information about their upcoming Ninja All-Stars with a look at some of the background fluff for the world. While Fluff =/= Rules (as we used to say back on the Privateer Press forums), looking over what fluff is seen as the base for the universe does give us some insight into what the game could be like. It’s pretty short, so give it a quick read.
