Skirmisher Publishing


March really is coming in like a lion in the gaming industry. At least, Skirmisher Publishing is holding nothing back. They've put together a group of their supplements and are offering them as a single bundle that's... let's see here... yes, they're 90% off the regular price.
I mean, sometimes you hear about deals, but this is a DEAL. If you've got $3, you can pick up this set for your very own.
As I've said many, many times before, it's always good for the GM of a game to have resources on-hand to help flesh out their game world. Players are great at asking questions that a GM might not have expected, and thus have to come up with answers on the fly. A common trope is to have the adventurers head to various religious temples and other locations. "So, what do I see?" is a pretty common question, and it could be easy to just be like, "uh... religious stuff..." But that's no fun. That's why Skirmisher Publishing has created Mysterious Relics: Pantheon-Specific Temple Objects & Furnishings. You can get your copy now.
A castle's defenses are many and varied. You've got thick wall to keep enemies out. Tall towers from which you can rain arrows down on opponents. A sturdy portcullis so foes don't just waltz in through the front door. And there's the moat, a watery defense that reminds knights that heavy plate armor makes it hard to swim. But what could be lurking in those waters also looking to help defend the castle? That's what you can find out in Moat Monsters, a new sourcebook available from Skirmisher Publishing.
February for us here in the West means that it's time for the Chinese Lunar New Year over in, well... China. It's quite a big celebration, with fireworks and red packets and all sorts of stuff. In honor of the New Year, Skirmisher Publishing has released a new monster for 5th Edition. It's the Earth Dog.
I just saw that there was a new tomb found in Egypt that's giving more insight into one of the most intriguing civilizations in world history. All sorts of things have been found in Egyptian tombs. They're a great thing to toss into your RPGs, too. But it can be hard to come up with things to put in there. Thankfully, that's where Skirmisher Publishing steps in with their newly-released 100 Oddities for an Egyptian Tomb.
Many of you have resolved to get more gaming in this new year. I'm guessing several of you also resolved to be more responsible with money. Well, Skirmisher Publishing is helping you stick to your goals in one swoop. They're offering a special 50% off price on their popular City Builder supplement. If you're leading an RPG and you need some help coming up with all the civilizations that your players might come across, this 174-page book is here to help.
Every culture is going to have its special days. Be it commemorating some great battle victory, or to mark the occasion in the life of their deities, there's going to be various holidays. Well, Skirmisher Publishing is here to help you out as a GM, by giving you lists of various holidays that you can add to your game sessions.
"And they're hanging their stockings," he snarled with a sneer. "Tomorrow is Christmas. It's practically here."
But what will be in those stockings? Sure, you could try and just come up with something off the top of your head. Or, you could really go all-out and have a list of 100 oddities to pull out. The new book is available from Skirmisher Publishing.
Whenever DNA divides, there's a chance that an error might be made, and the sequences aren't 100% like they had been. When those new DNA bits recombine, it's a mutation. Many times, mutations are bad. But, just occasionally, they can really cause some interesting and possibly beneficial things to happen in the organism. That's where the Mutants come in. And if you want to play one in your Pathfinder games, Skirmisher Publishing has a whole player's guide for you to check out.
While there's certainly nothing wrong with playing a character in an RPG that's an elf or a dwarf or a human or a halfling, but, for me, I always liked getting a bit more creative with it. Minotaurs, goliaths, and such like that. Well, if you want something a bit more scaly, Skirmisher Publishing has released Coldblooded: A Player's Guide to Lizardmen.
For those that haven't picked up any of the previous 100 Oddities books, I can say from experience that they really help out. GMs send players all over everywhere in their games, and coming up with a full, rich world can sometimes be difficult. Players will always end up going somewhere or asking something that you might not've been prepared for. "Ok, so we go through the books in the wizard's library. What do we find?" Sure, you could just go, "uh... stuff..." but where's the fun in that? In this instance, they've made 100 Oddities for a Sewer. So you can have more than just "probably not a chocolate bar" and "rats."
Skirmisher Publishing loves their customers. Really, really, really loves them. How much? Well, they've got a special bundle available from their DriveThruRPG shop that's only $0.10 for 10 titles. Yes, a penny apiece. Obviously, this won't stay around forever, so you might want to hurry and get your bundle for yourself.
Skirmisher Publishing is running a Veteran's Day Sale over on their DriveThruRPG page. If you're looking at getting some of their products for a great price, now's your chance as many of their titles are 50% off. But be quick, these prices are going to be here and gone fast.
This shortened work week continues along. I'm certainly looking forward to the upcoming weekend. Gonna get together and hang out with some friends I don't get to see too often. I'm sure there'll be plenty of tasty snacks and treats to be had, too. But before we get there, we need to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Releases Available from Terrible Kids Stuff, New Heroes for the Pacific From Stoessi's Heroes, Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities For A Viking Encounter, and New Orc Sturmtankette Available From Kromlech.

As we stand here, on Friday afternoon, on the precipice of the weekend, it seems appropriate to make a profound and meaningful statement about life, itself...
... ... ... Anyone got anything? ... Anyone? ... Ah well, instead how about we just munch on some bite-sized gaming stories? Sounds like a plan.

Today on the platter we have: Woodland 25mm und 40mm flat Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Khurasan releases Vietnam War range, and 100 Oddities for a Treasure Hoard Available From Skirmisher Publishing.

Having been home on Monday and Tuesday, it's really throwing off what day of the week it is to me. Even though I'm sitting here in my Wednesday shirt, it doesn't really feel like Wednesday. Typing up a Podcast Roundup this morning didn't help, either. Maybe having a Snippets post now will help. I guess there's one way to find out.

Today on the platter we have: New Farm Animals Available From Warlord Games, More fantasy football head sets Available From Tabletop-Art, Retro Power Armor Mini Available From Brother Vinni, Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest, and New Hobby Black Chains Available From Kromlech.

It's been quite a week. I know a lot of people are looking forward to the weekend in order to clear their mind of things. I know that's the case for me. I'm hoping to get some gaming on tomorrow and just decompress. I'm not one for getting political, but just remember that despite all our differences, we're all humans and we all have to live on this planet together.
That said, let's get to some bite-sized gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: New Arkham Horro Playmats From Fantasy Flight Games, Independence Day sale at Assault Publishing, 12 Realms and Raid & Trade November Scenarios Posted, Kromlech Weekend Promo Happening Now, Yokai Quest Kickstarter Launches Next Week, and Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities For A Wasteland.

Many of you have checked out the various "Kos" books. There are 5 (not counting this new one) that incorporate the Swords of Kos Fantasy RPG setting. The new one is World of Kos. It's a full campaign setting book that you can use to tie all the other books together, as well as be used as a launching point into the setting for yourself and your game.
Most of the time when you think of zombies, you think of maybe some voodoo curse, or a necromancer run amok, or maybe some sort of terrible disease. The latest issue of Wisdom from the Wastelands takes a slightly different look at the walking undead. The zombies (and other such undead horrors that inhabit the world) here were purposefully-designed weapons. They're basically cyberzombies, having been made by mad scientists who grafted technology to corpses to be used in a long-forgotten conflict. Unfortunately, the weapons are still out there, roaming around, not realizing the war they fought in was finished long before.
The week continues along, as it tends to do. It's only just today that I really realized that this upcoming weekend is a long one for those of us here in the US. The 4th of July falls on Monday. So that'll be cool. Time for some BBQs. But before we get to the hamburgers, hot dogs, and fireworks, we'd best fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: Khurasan releases 15mm Ancient Siamese, Trailer Park Zombies Up On Indiegogo, Dwarven Mountain Rams Riders from Scibor Now Available, New Player Boards for Power Grid by CorSec Engineering, Attaking the Darkness Mockumentary is free until July 1st, New Ravens Available From Tabletop-Art, Big Magic: The Gathering - Puzzle Quest Update, Casual Game Insider Coming to Books-A-Million And Launching New Kickstarter, Wildside Gaming System to be Released as a Free App, Skirmisher Publishing Releases Quantum Flux: Unique Superscience Artifacts, Syrinscape Releases Gen Con Soundset, and New Legionary Ranged Arms Available From Kromlech.

Skirmisher Publishing has released their first book for the BASH fantasy RPG system. It's Men & Monsters of the Aegean and it puts players into a mythological Mediterranean, full of classic monsters, heroes, and other beings.
Spring is in the air... everywhere that I go. And it's certainly in the air in the town of Pertalo. They're getting set for the Fertility Feast of Agnor, a yearly celebration of winter coming to an end and warmth returning to the land. However, amid the preparations, an evil force had swooped in. Lots of chaos and terror ensued, but it was over quickly... or was it?
People have been living in Ehtiopia since... well... just about since people have been. Obviously, a place with such a long history of having humans there is going to be full of legends and lore that would make great fodder for your gaming sessions. And that's just what Skirmisher Publishing has done. They've created Men & Monsters of Ehtiopia, a new sourcebook for use with 5th Edition Dungeons & Dragons.
Taking a break from the RPG Kickstarters for a minute.
Is the week going by quickly for anyone else? On my ride in to work today, I looked down at my dashboard and saw my odometer and, for a moment, went, "why is that so high? It's only Tues... oh... wait... it's Wednesday. Ok, that makes sense."
But seeing as it is Wednesday and all, we should have ourselves a Midweek Snippets.
Man, this is also the first Wednesday in a couple weeks where I don't have tomorrow off. Makes me a little sad, but I'll get through it, somehow.

Anyway, today's batch of bite-sized stories includes: Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Wizard's Tower, New Year's Sale Happening Over at Advanced Deployment, Pulposaurus Entertainment Updates About the future of Conan: Rise of Monsters, New Praetorian Helmeted Heads From Puppets War, Chemical Spill: the Chemistry Card game: two weeks left on Kickstarter, Massive Awesome Announces Launch Date For Shattered Earth Kickstarter, Purgatory Posts New Previews, New Year's Sale From Dark Art Miniatures, Iron Cross Miniatures Posts New Fireteam Release, New Dwarf King from Scibor, Too Fat Lardies Christmas Special, BattleGateGames Releases New Bust, New Battlefields XP Tufts From The Army Painter, ArmiesArmy 15mm Cold War Kickstarter is Live, New Paint Storage Systems from Burn In Designs, New Lower Pricing on Legends of Kalidasia Starter Sets, New Releases Available From Hinterland Miniatures, "Shieldwolf vs Orcs" launches on Kickstarter Tuesday 12th January, and Chicago Shootout reaches 50% funded on Kickstarter.

Is the week racing along for everyone else or is it just me? Hard to believe that it's already Wednesday. Seems that we just started this week a couple days ago... Ok, so we did just start this week a couple days ago, but you know what I mean. What it does mean, though, is that we've got a midweek Snippets post for you.

In this batch of bite-sized stories we have: Kensei Coming Soon To Kickstarter, Awaken Tabletop RPG Passes Funding Goal on Kickstarter, Final days for Wolf & Hound on Kickstarter, Final Hours for Ninja Crusade 2nd Edition On Kickstarter, Final Hours for Spellbook Gaming Boxes on Kickstarter, Skirmisher Publishing Releases 100 Oddities for a Graveyard, Licensed Coins from The Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit on Kickstarter, Fireforge Russian Infantry sculpting completed, Squadron Strike Ship Book 2 Back in "Print" as a PDF, The Ion Age: Rewards Programme upgraded and expanded, and Kromlech New Release - Legionary Chain Axes.
