Catalyst Game Labs Posts March and April Releases

Yes, yes, yes. I know that March is basically over. April will be here... well... Friday. But it just means that if you didn't know about the books released for Shadowrun and Battletech the other day, you can just run yourself out and get it. Also, you can get your finances in order for all the things releasing in April. And trust me, there's a lot.

Fiona Vs Cake Expansion Available For Adventure Time Card Wars

On the long drive up to Adepticon, Blackstock and I had conversations about many topics. One was parallel universes and alternate realities. Like how, right now, there's an infinite number of mes, all living different lives (or exactly the same lives) as me. Craziness. Well, in Adventure Time, Fionna and Cake are alternate-reality versions of Finn and Jake, and they're making their appearance in the Adventure Time Card Wars game.

Spring Release for Alkemy

Spring has sprung.
At least for those of us here in the Northern hemisphere. The days are getting longer. The grass is growing. The pollen is friggin' everywhere, coating everything in a green/gold powder coat that sends people coughing and choking... But still... Spring... Anyway, the Spring releases for Alkemy are now available (you can still buy them in the Southern hemisphere, even though it's Fall now).

So, as I was in a car for just slightly more than 1/2 of yesterday, I didn't get much of a chance to post up the Midweek Snippets post. As such, I'm rolling it in with today's Terrain Corner, as I have a bit of time right now to do so (and to give you a "peek behind the curtain," I'm actually typing this late at night here on Wednesday).

Anyway, in this Terrain Corner/Snippets post we have: Gaddis Gaming Launches 28mm WWII Miniatures Kickstarter, Turn One Gaming Supplies Releases 8-Bit Dice, Donnybrook skirmish game rulebook now available, Post Apocalyptic Dwarf Bikers Up On Kickstarter, Round-Lip Space Dungeon Bases Available From Tabletop-Art, Heroic Maps - Giant Maps: The Great Labyrinth Now Available, MidKnight Heroes Super Chibi Finial sculpts are in and late pledge extended, Crossover Miniatures Releases Frederick Class Airship, Meka Desert: Pwork Wargames science fiction gaming mat, Gamelyn responds to backers with only 3 days left, and Battle Valor Games 15mm Fantasy New Releases.

Trail of the Apprentice RPG Adventure Up On Kickstarter

You know, we're all new at something at some point. And while you may have a natural talent for something, you're still going to have to do a lot of learning to be able to become a master at any particular skill... particularly adventuring in a fantasy realm. That tends to take a lot of time and effort in the form of killing various monsters (who hasn't had to clean out a local tavern's basement of giant rats?). Well, I don't know if there's any basements full of giant rats in Trail of the Apprentice, but I do know that it's up on Kickstarter now.

Emergence Board Game Up On Kickstarter

Artificial Intelligence might be the greatest achievement in science... or it might just doom us all. In Emergence, the latter has happened. Whoops. Thankfully, the few surviving humans are still fighting back. But they must keep their identity secret as they move through the robot world, lest they be taken out. Meanwhile, the robots might have almost wiped us out, but the humans that are left have gotten rather sneaky. It'll be tough to tell robot from human. Can you trust your friend?

Granny Grating Armies Up On Kickstarter

Hobby gaming, in general, is a pretty expensive hobby. Figures for the various games that we love to play aren't always cheap, and that can lead to a lot of people feeling that they really can't get into it. However, that doesn't have to be the case, as is being shown with Granny Grating Armies, up on Kickstarter now.

Sweet Home, Chicago

Well, it's been a while since I've been in my home city (I was born just right over there *points towards Alexian Brothers hospital). But here I am in Schaumberg, ready for Adepticon.

I'll be updating what I can here, but be sure to check out the TGN Facebook Page for regular photo updates. I've already scheduled a demo of a brand new game from Andy Chambers, so be on the lookout for that as well.

It's gonna be a great show. If you're here and see me roaming around, feel free to say hi.

New Releases For Dark Age Now Available

Well, we just passed Easter last weekend. A lot of people took the time to go to church, even if they don't normally make a habit of it (whereas nuns do tend to make a habit of it... Get it? Get it?... never mind).
Anyway, the Forsaken are Dark Age's religious fanatics and they've got themselves a new saint in this new set of releases.

Wrath of Kings Reviews Neritic Horror

There are many crazy things that live in our oceans. Just the other day I saw this story about some neon-green-eyed fish-thing that they brought up from the depths.
Yeah, I really have no desire to go swimming in the ocean, thankyouverymuch. Hell, I might run into a Neritic Horror! At least if that did happen, though, the preview posted up for Wrath of Kings will let me know how to deal with it.
