Modiphius is known for taking various licenses and turning them from their regular medium and turning them into tabletop games. In this instance, it's the Dishonored video game that's getting the tabletop treatment. Modiphius has announced that they're working with Arkane Studios to turn their video game into a tabletop RPG. It will use a streamlined version of the 2d20 system that they've used for other games in their line.

Mars. The next planet out from the Sun. Right now, it's a cold, dead, silent rock. However, humans have been looking to head over there and make a place for ourselves for quite some time. While in the real world we're not quite there yet, in Migration: Mars, we are. In the game, players are looking to set up their own Martian colonies. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

It's been a while since I played a deck-building game. They used to be on my table almost every time I went to game. Maybe I just need to find a new one, and Tortuga 2199 might just be it. In the game, you're a space captain who's looking to recruit a crew, go out and find some adventure (and loot), and backstab your opponents along the way. The game's up on Kickstarter now.

Awight! I shaw wewease... WOGAAAH!!!

I guess we now know who at least let this particular dog out. Roger's a big, happy, babypuppy pitty (with that giant bowling ball head that they have), and he just looks so happy to be here. Or, at least, he will be happy to be here when Painting Polygons launches their Animal Adventures: Secrets of Gullet Cove Kickstarter campaign in just a couple days.

Thursday and the work week continues to rush along. Sorry if I seem distracted. My hot sauce delivery showed up last night and the prospect of 17 new sauces for me to try (and review) is still trying to sink in, even the next day. I'm going to be eating a lot of chicken wings soon... But before I get to that, I need to make sure your gaming table looks as good as my condiment table (do people have condiment tables?).

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Acheson Accessories for January 2020 - The Fourth Five, Castellan Tank Gate Now Available From Tabletop Scenics, and Haqqislam Mat Now Available From Deep-Cut Studio.

And the award for "most interesting title of the day" goes to The Forgotten Rights of the Moldering Dead, an RPG supplement that's all about giving you more information about that most classic of RPG monsters: undead. But not just a monster book, there's all sorts of things in there, including funerary rights, laments, processions and celebrations, and many ways to update the undead in your games. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

A GM can never have too many resources at their fingertips when running a game. That's my honest opinion. Creating everything from scratch is hard, so having pre-made monsters of all type, in particular, is very helpful. That's where the people of Carwood Publishing come in with thier Monsters of the City series of books. There's a new one up on Kickstarter called Sins & Virtues that has 100 more pre-made monsters for you to throw at your party.

Though it's been longer than I care to actually count out, I am a fan of mini-golf. It's a nice, fun, somewhat relaxing day out with friends (unless that ball just -wont- go in that hole!). But considering the weather outside right now, it's probably not ideal for minigolf. But have no fear. You can bring the fun indoors with Minigolf Designer, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Puns. Some people love them. Some people hate them. Personally, I enjoy a good pun. You know, the kind that makes you stop, think for a moment, then usually groan at how bad it is. If you're like me, then Puns of Anarchy, a new party card game up on Kickstarter now, is right up your alley.

Evil forces are threatening the Valley of Peace. There's only one group that can stand in their way. They're the Furious 5 and Po, the Kung Fu Panda. Based on the hit movie from DreamWorks, Modiphius has released Kung Fu Panda The Board Game. You can head out and get your copies now.

Hi-YA!

The Trophy RPG is actually two different games. Trophy Dark is a psychological horror one-shot game while Trophy Gold is a campaign game. But in both, players take on the role of treasure hunters who are trying to, well, find treasures. However, the world they're searching around in actively fights against them every step of the way. If you're looking for a dark, gritty game, this one might just be for you. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

"You know, when they dinosaurs. What's it called? Eskavating?" - Brad Leone

Just about everyone I've ever known has wanted, at some point in time or another, to be a paleontologist. I certainly did for the longest time. And that love of dinosaurs has never fully left me. So, while I'm not out in the South Dakota badlands looking for fossils, I can still live the paleontoligst life vicariously through games like Jurassic Parts, a new board game that's up on Kickstarter now.

Well, I tell you what, they have my interest based on the game name alone. I love. I love lunchtime. And battling is fine (especially if someone tries to mess with my lunch). Space Battle Lunchtime Card Game is apparently based off a graphic novel. I can't say that I've heard of it before, but it might be worth checking out. It's a bit cooking show. It's a bit battle. In the game, players will have to create magnificent dishes to wow the judges. The game's coming out in April, but you can get your name down on the list to get a copy asap.

Wednesday already. I love when a work week seems to go by quickly. I'm excited today because on a truck right now is a whole ton of hot sauce from what I am hoping becomes one of my favorite hot-sauce makers. We shall see. In the meantime, there's another form of tasty snack to deal with. We have some bite-sized gaming stories to nosh on.

Today on the platter we have: Alchemy Dice Now Available From Dice Market, Bugbear Tribe Miniaturs Up On Kickstarter, and New Dice Coming Tomorrow From Kraken Dice.
