Having a pre-made adventure around makes a GM's life easier. They can basically just "grab and go" and they've got some sessions already put together. Sprinkle in some game-specific items here and there and your players may never know that you used one. Well, Dread Swamp of the Banshee is just such an adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

I've said time and again that there's no such thing as too many options when it comes to material for GMs to speed up their game prep. Well, if you're a GM and you're looking for new baddies to throw at your players, you should check out the Monsters of Aquilae campaign that's going on now. What games do they cover? Quite a few, including Pathfinder, 5E, OSRIC, and Pathfinder Second Edition.

1888. London. The city is gripped by fear. A terror going by the name of Jack the Ripper is stalking the streets. Will anyone be able to bring this terrible serial killer to justice? Hopefully you can, as that's your job in 5th Evolution: Whitechapel, a new 5th Edition RPG adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

Let's start this off with some appropriate music, shall we?

Nowthen, I'm always a fan of board games that have a unique premise. Fantasy towns. Sci-fi space stations. Zombie-filled malls. They've been done. But a group of ballerinas looking to become the star in the new production? That you don't see too often, but it's what we have here in On Pointe, a new board game from Analog Game Studios that's up on Kickstarter now.

It's amazing how time works. Monday? Went by like it was nothing. Tuesday? Much the same. Yesterday? I can't really say that it was a long day. It was just "day." Yet, now that we're into Thursday, I'm like, "How is the week not over with yet!?!?" I guess I'm just exciteda bout game this weekend.

Anyway, as it is Thursday, that means terrain.

In the Terrain Corner we have: New Trees Available From Deep-Cut Studio, Lord Cireneg's City Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter, and Forsaken Lands Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter.

Draco Ideas is expnading their 2GM Tactics game out into the Pacific with 2GM Pacific. Sun, sand, tropical seas, and the enemy swarming over every island. The new expansion is fully compatible with other 2GM Tactics games, but obviously takes place during the island-hopping campaign of the US Armed Forces during WWII. The game will be headed to Kickstarter next month. Draco Ideas has set up a launch event for you to keep track of goings-on.

WWII. Germany and Russia have a non-aggression pact going on. However, the Germans are wary of the Russians and feel that, despite their semi-friendship, that will soon come to an end. In order to get a jump on their opponent, they attack, diving into the heart of Russian territory. Now, real history shows this as being a huge military blunder. But what about you? Could you make Operation Barbarossa work? That's up to you to find out in 1941: Race to Moscow, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

It's a beautiful day for a walk in the park. The sky is bright. The sun is out. The local waterfowl are in abundance. They're such cute creatures. Might want to snap a photo of them, even! Well, here in Atlanta, it's a bit cold to go to the park. So, until things brighten up some, I'll just have to live vicariously through Ducks in Tow, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.
