In the real world, Venus is a hellish planet. Rivers of iron. Clouds of sulfuric acid. Incinerating heat. It’s not a place you’d want to walk around on. However, the Venus in the Space 1889 universe is a bit more hospitable to life. And if you’d like to go there, Modiphius has relea...

Would you believe the year is half-over already? Yeah. As we stand on the cusp of July, the first half of the year is behind us. Is it going by fast for you, too? It certainly has for me. Personally, I’m ready for autumn, because it’s my favorite time of year. Plus, I want to […]...

You know, if you’re going to have a pulp-style adventure, you should name it like one. And The Revenge of the Robots of Doom is certainly everything I’d expect from a pulp-style adventure. It would seem as though I keep saying that 2016 was the Year of New Editions, 2017 is looking to be ...

So the middle of yesterday sort of dragged along, but overall the week is still going by in a flash (for me, at least). Hopefully you have weekend plans like I do. We’re going to be having a build party for my friend’s original Kingdom Death set. Though, really, I’m gonna be trying ...

In a dark, modern city, nothing is quite as it seems. You go about your everyday, ordinary life feeling that things are just “off.” Things that seem like coincidences follow a nonsense pattern. You feel as though you’re destined for much more than just the “wake up, work, come...

Well, it’s Thursday and that means a couple things. 1) I’m in my Thursday shirt. 2) The weekend’s just over a day away. 3) We’ve gotta make sure that your gaming tables look as good as they possibly can. As the first one is already in play and the second we can’t really ...

Snakes! Why’d it have to be snakes? Well, a lot of people like snakes and they’ve been a part of human culture for a very long time. Take Ancient Egypt, for example. You’ll see snakes all over the place. And it’s into such a tomb, decorated with all manner of snakes, that you ...

As we all know from watching Matt Damon, Mars isn’t a very forgiving place. There’s the windstorms, the vast deserts, the sky pirates, the sand worms… Ok, so The Martian may have glossed over a couple of those. Thankfully, the Perils of Mars book for Hollow Earth Expedition picks up...

It’s not easy, boating around the South Asian Sea. A storm can come up out of nowhere and get you off-course. There’s all sorts of coral reefs that you have to worry about. There’s the possibility of just ending up on some island, far from any major civilization. That last one is ju...

Sometimes a TV show just needs a reboot. I know a lot of people complain about how Hollywood is nothing but reboots and sequels. But I’m not as down on it. How do you know a reboot won’t be better than the original? You don’t until you try it out. So I’m always excited to [&he...
