CMON Launches Rise of Moloch Kickstarter

The streets of London are choked with thick fog and smoke from the factories. People go about their everyday lives. The undead are used as a labor force, putting many out of a job. Strange creatures, tainted by the runoff from the factories, lurk the alleyways. In all of it, the Cult looks to bring back Moloch, a fire demon from centuries ago. It's up to the Gentlemen of the Unicorn Club to put a stop to it and save the Queen, London, and the whole world. That's just where you come in. The World of Smog: Rise of Moloch is CMON's latest Kickstarter campaign that's just launched.

Gamemaster's Guide for 1879 RPG Up On Kickstarter

The world of Fasa's 1879 is a bit different than the one you learned about in history class. Here, Albert and Victoria are still in control of the British Empire, but that empire now includes Grosvenor Land. Or, it would include it, if the natives weren't being so persnickety about it. Found by going through a portal known as the Rabbit Hole, the land is one that seems split off from the rest of history. There's fertile plains, towering mountains, giant insects, and the Babylonians (who managed to find the place 3000 years earlier). Then there's the Saurid tribes. They're lizard-like beings that also inhabit the land. If you'd like to take your players into such a world, you will be able to with the 1879 Gamemaster's Guide, which is up on Kickstarter now.

Friday Snippets

Well, this rocket-fast week is rocket-fastly coming to an end (yes, I made up a word there. It's not a very good word, but there it is). The weekend stretches before us like a blank canvas. Personally? I'm going to be playing some Guild Ball, putting together some Kingdom Death (or, hopefully, just playing more Guild Ball :P ), and then making a fruitcake (because I actually like fruitcake). But that's as may be. If I'm going to be doing all that, I should fill up on bite-sized gaming stories to make sure I get through it all.

Today we have: Gamelyn Games announces Heroes’ of Land, Air & Sea, Steampunk 35mm Miniatures from Topexx Dominions Now Live on Kickstarter, HSD Miniatures Expansion 1 on Kickstarter, and Battle Dice Weekend Promo From Bits of War.

Friday Snippets

I technically have the day off today. Why? Because CMON went public on the Hong Kong stock exchange and they're giving us the day off to celebrate. But the news doesn't stop just because the office is closed. Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor slush, shal keep me from giving you your news (ok, so maybe eating lots of food last week would keep me from doing it, but still...). Gonna be a bit shorter day today, but I still want to get you your bite-sized gaming stories. So let's get to it.

On the platter today, we have: Ramshackle Games Releases the Boom Wagon, Gods & Goddesses 5th edition supplement coming to Kickstarter in February, Kromlech New Release: Vehicle Hull Points Markers, Raging Heroes Sale Extended Through This Weekend, Aether Captains: Action Cards Update, Liam Games distributes MAGE Company in Israel, and Czacha Games to publish Polish Raid and Trade in 2017.

Thursday Terrain Corner

It's December. Yesterday, we had some pretty nasty storms roll through here in Atlanta. Today, it's definitely a bit cooler than it had been. Sure, a high of 54 might not seem too cold to someone in Chicago (where I grew up). But it's colder than the 70s it'd been the previous couple days. Staying in and playing some games sounds rather nice. So let's make sure those gaming tables look good.

Today in our Terrain Corner we have: New Firefly Airship from Burn In Designs, Heroic Maps - Explorer: Night Camps Now Available, Deep-Cut Studio releases a new Neo-Tokyo game mat, Infinity Scenery: Pwork Wargames gaming Scenery Sets Now Available, and Crossroads gaming mat by Warzone Studio Now Available.

The first couple days went by slowly, but since then, at least for me, the week's felt like it's picked up steam and we're rushing our way towards the weekend. I know I could use some relaxation time, and I just lined up a day of gaming on Saturday. So that should be good. Hopefully you've got plans along those same lines. And if you do, you'll want your gaming table looking good. And that's what we're here to help with now.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Premium Mats From WizKids, 4 new 1:72 Normandy Houses From Najewitz Modellbau, New Market Terrain From Micro Art Studio, New Samhain Gates From Valquiria Studio, and Woodland: Pwork Wargames Fantasy Gaming Mat Now Available.

Not sure why, but this week's been a time enigma. I woke up this morning going, "wow, already Wednesday!" But since I've been here at the office, it's been the exact opposite. "How is it only 10am? I feel like I've been here forever!" What might help is noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Sauriana 54mm Miniatures Game Up On Kickstarter

You get 54mm dinosaur minis.
If that didn't get you to go check out the campaign for Sauriana, I'm not sure what more you would need. But in an effort to not just make this post a single sentence and a link, I'll elaborate. The game is set in an alternate version of the 19th century where steampunk scientists calling themselves the Cope Collective do battle with adventurers from the Explorer's Club (and the dinosaurs they've found) as well as the Othniellians (the "cowboys of science") and the hybrid creatures they are creating. The game is currently up on Kickstarter.
