Troll Lord Games

Let's keep the sales posts going for the day and finish out with quite a big one. Are you interested in Castles & Crusades? Perhaps you've checked it out, but were waiting for a sale to dive in? Would you like a digital copy of 18 different books? Well, you can get them now in a single Megabundle for 80% off the regular price.
Well, after what seemed like two Thursdays in a row, we have made our way, finally, to Friday. And I, for one, welcome our new almost-weekend overlords. With any luck, your weekend will be filled with gaming. If not, I still hope it's restful. But before we can get there, we should fill up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Final days for Castles & Crusades Kickstarter, New Selection of Peasants Available From Warlord Games, Geek & Sundry and Campaign Coins release TableTop gaming coins, and Battlefront Releases Afrika Korps Gaming Aids For Flames of War.

At once, it feels both like, "wow. Already Wednesday?" and "wow. How is it only Wednesday?"
Is it that way for anyone else or just me?
I feel like I've gotten a lot done, but have a lot more waiting ahead of me.
Ah well. We'll make it. Break on through to the other side. To help with that, here's a bunch of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Scotia Grendel New Releases - October 2016, Rebel Minis Launches Rise of the Animechs Kickstarter, Shatterlands Kickstarter Reaches Funding Goal, Xtraidos Skirmish Game Relaunching Soon On Indiegogo, Ether Wars Kickstarter Relaunch November 22nd + Giveaway starting this Tuesday, New Releases Available From Victoria Miniatures, Idea Jab Card Game Coming To Kickstarter "Pretty Soonish", Khurasan releases 15mm Seydlitz Tank, Geek Chic Releases The Vanguard Table, Chronicles Miniatures Game Looking For Beta Testers, Brother Vinni Releases Tricycle Robot, Final Hours For Shadows of Esteren On Kickstarter, Final Days for Ninja Arena On Kickstarter, Table Air Combat: U-2 Kukuruznik Now Available, Castles & Crusades latest Kickstarter in its final week, Twisted Brothers Studio join MAGE Company, and New Breacher Bikes Available From Kromlech.

Castles & Crusades is expanding. Troll Lord Games is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to bring two new books to the system. They're basically a setting guide as well as a player's guide for The Hallowed Oracle. and it would seem people are excited about it, as the Kickstarter's doing rather well.
The week continues along. As it goes, so do we along with it. The weekend is coming up soon. It'll hopefully be here before we know it. I'm going to an inaugural board game day at a library that a friend works at. Probably to play Guild Ball. I know that's not technically a board game. But I don't care. I'm a rebel.

Anyway, before then, we need to stock up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

So today we have: Red Panda Miniatures Wander Contest Happening Now, Ares Games Posts Dungeon Time Kickstarter Preview Video, Khurasan releases 15mm Merkava Mark 4, New interactve website for Castles & Crusades, Oddzial Osmy’s 3mm June Releases Arrive at PicoArmor, and Final week for Barbaric Splendor Kickstarter One: Personalities.

Are you familiar with familiars? If you've played a magic-user in a D&D game before, you probably are. My favorite familiar was a shocker lizard named Bitey. He was the familiar of a lightning mage I used to play back in the day. Good times. Now, obviously, a shocker lizard isn't among the "standard set" of familiars. And this was back in 3.5th edition. Well, now Troll Lord Games is helping to expand your Familiar options in 5th edition with their new book up on Kickstarter.
To prove myself even more right that it's still possible to get sales into the middle of December. Troll Lord Games has announced that their holiday sale is happening now. So if you'd like to get some Castles & Crusades books for a lot cheaper than you'd usually have to spend, you'll want to check it out.
Occasionally, people will hear me lament about wanting to see a setting that's really different than the rest. Not that there's anything wrong with fantasy or sci-fi, in general, but sometimes you want something that's out of the ordinary. Well, it would seem that Troll Lord Games is looking out for me. They're bringing Hound Comic's Brimstone and the Borderhounds to the SIEGE Engine RPG system. They're up on Kickstarter now and looking for some funding.
Castles & Crusades is looking to expand the information available to players with a trio of new codices. They've taken to Kickstarter in order to get that funding. And looking at the goal total and the pledges so far, it looks like they'll be able to get them made.
Do you like fantasy RPGs? Do you like saving money? Do you like digital media? Well, then have I got a news story for you! Troll Lord Games is having a store-wide sale on their e-books over on RPGNow. If you want to save 50% on their wares, head on over and check it out.
Troll Lord wants to ring in the new year in style. They've been more than 5x funded in their Aihrde RPG setting Kickstarter, but want to get even further. So if they can break $25k by midnight tonight, they'll add in a free adventure to all backers.
They've got less than $4k to go to get there, and just over 13 hours.
The overall campaign still had 5 days to go, but if you can get a free adventure, why not jump in now?

Troll Lord Games and Hound Comics are teaming up for Castles & Crusades: Brimstone and the Borderhounds RPG book.


From the announcement:

Troll Lord Games and Hound Comics welcome you to an exciting new RPG, Castles & Crusades Brimstone & the Borderhounds. Ripped from the pages of the Brimstone & the Borderhounds comic book TLG is using the challenging yet extremely easy to learn C&C Siege Engine to create a fast paced, easy to play, RPG that brings you into the world of the Borderhounds.

Hell is an unkind place. A sprawling megalopolis of twisted streets and ramshackle buildings piled one on top of the other, clawing their way to height's unseen where the Lords of Hell rule. Here the harvested souls of evil labor as slaves, doomed to eternal torment. Bound to a world of suffering, always yearning for a world beyond their own. Those wicked who are able seek to flee this city of the damned and do so with whatever tool they can: greed, violence, avarice. Fleeing hell is the only goal.

But to do so these souls must pass the Borderhounds. Bounty Hunters set on the edge of forever who hunt down wayward souls and throw them in, or out, of Hell. Led by grim faced Brimstone, these Borderhounds are the bane of the damned.

Now you can join the Borderhounds!

Troll Lord Games is taking pre-orders for their Bluffside: City on the Edge rpg supplement book for Castles and Crusades.
If they get enough pre-orders, they'll upgrade the book to hardcover.


From the announcement:

This project has been hammered into its final form and is now print ready. But like many projects around here of late, the sheer idea of releasing it in the standard softcover perfect bound format is just not good enough. So we've set a goal, much like Free City of Eskadia, we are aiming to raise $4000.00 in pre-order money to print this book in hardback.

If we can get $4000.00 in pre-orders for Bluffside: City on the Edge, we'll print this as a hardback. If not, we'll proceed apace and do it as a softcover. Your pledge for the printed book is good either way.

The good news is that the book is PRINT READY. That means if you join us and pre-order today you'll receive a digital copy (assuming you order one) within 72 hours of the order (counting for weekends!). So you can plunge into the City by the Sea immediately! As soon as we hit the funding goal, we send it to print.

Troll Lord Games exceeds Kickstarter goal:

From their announcement:

A hearty THANK YOU to everyone who has already joined the Crusade and pre-ordered Classic Monsters Monster Manual. We are offering a large assortment of goodies to go with the pre-order and set the goal at $4,000.00. We met and have now exceeded that goal; this in under a week. That's pretty cool and once again is a testament to the popularity and dedication of the C&C gamers!

It is not too late to join in on the action however as we will continue to take pre-orders through the kickstarter system until December 2, 2011. After the book will not be offered until its release in late December or early January. So, be sure to join up now!
