I didn't end up getting picked for the jury, if anyone was wondering. Can't say that I'm disappointed over that. I mean, sure, I can be judgemental, but in an actual, legal capacity? That's too much, man.

But anyway, this odd week is almost at an end. Just half of today and we're done. Then, the weekend. And it's one of the few weekends that we have left in the year. I'm sure many of you are prepping for holidays, which usually includes various tasty snacks. Well, as is tradition, we have a tray of tasty bite-sized gaming stories for you here.

Today on the platter we have: New Releases Coming Tonight from Kraken Dice, Solid Brass Rainbow Serpentine Dice Up On Kickstarter, and New Helmeted Heads Available From Puppets War.

Like happens so often with Forge World, it's two ends of the spectrum with their pre-orders for the week. On one side, you have a quick and nimble Blood Angles jump-pack squad for 40k. On the other side, there's the big and lumbering Ogre team expansion set for Blood Bowl. Sci-fi versus fantasy sports. Take your pick (even if it's both).

These days, we live our lives online. Heck, I can do my entire career from anywhere that has internet access. But in such an environment, there are those bent on getting into any and every system they can.

So I'm doing my best to get through all these posts super-early before I have my day in court. Thankfully, it's only in the jury box. But anyway, before I go do my civic duty, I've got a terrain story for you.

I'm guessing many of you have heard of the McElroys. I know I routinely laugh my ass off watching Monster Factory. There's a good chance you've listened to their podcasts as well. But even if you haven't, you should check out The Adventure Zone podcast. But even if you haven't listened to -that-, you can still check out The Adventure Zone: Bureau of Balance, their new adventure storytelling card game. There's a regular and a Limited Edition version that you can pre-order now.
