Podcast Corner

Seeing as yesterday I was awake but my brain was 99% asleep in "post-con mode" from such a full weekend and then an incredibly long drive back home, I took it a bit easy. But that obviously means I missed yesterday's Terrain Corner. Well, I wouldn't want to deny you all the chance to spruce up your gaming tables. I also wouldn't want to miss today's Podcast Roundup, either. So I've combined them into the Podcast Corner for today.

Terrain Corner:

Manorhouse Workshop Update #18 – Rough Terrain & Cliffs

Hi everyone,
Today we are presenting you 2 new 3D Bases tiles.
The first tile is more generic and useful. It’s a tile with just some earth/ground, useful for most tridimensional tables, where you can add any kind of structure, be it constructed like a house or building, or more natural like a tree or a hill, or in between like ruins.

The second tile is a bit more complex, but also more interesting.
It is composed of some heights (small cliffs) which surrounds a road. This tile allows for numerous gaming uses for your miniatures, since the cliffs give some protection against missile attacks, and protects naturally any transit on the road, or give a good vantage point for artillery or other missile units while positioned on the cliffs.
Multiple tiles positioned one after another create a long protected road, giving yet another dimension to our tile

We’d like also to inform you that we are preparing the KS page.
Soon you will have the link, and you will be able to participate and comment, sharing your ideas, allowing the project to become even better than it is now.

Thanks and we’ll keep in touch on our next update.

Heroic Maps release - Fort Crabclaw

Fort Crabclaw

Captain Lucius Crabbe, the once-merchant-turned-pirate, was fleeing from the Imperial Navy when he chanced upon a small cave and managed to evade capture there. And, always one to spot an opportunity, Captain Crabbe realised this would be an idea place for a stronghold. He set his crew to work, and thus was born Fort Crabclaw. Over the years it has grown from a small fort for his crew to a camp for privateers, a market for smugglers, and a meeting place and tavern for rogues and those requiring their services.

Ice Cream For Everyone Ep 19: Luke Crane


This week on the podcast we geek out about tabletop roleplaying games (and a bunch of other stuff – don’t feel left out if you don’t play tabletop roleplaying games) with an awesome guest: Luke Crane. Luke had won multiple Origins Awards for Best Roleplaying Games in 2006 for his first system Burning Wheel and again in 2008 for MouseGuard. He also designed several other games such as Burning Empires, FreeMarket (with Jared Sorensen) and recently Torchbearer. Luke regularly talks about game design as a variety of events and conventions. Last but certainly not least, Luke is also the Head of Games for Kickstarter, the online crowdfunding website. He gets to support thriving game designers bring their projects to life thanks to the support of fans on the popular crowdfunding platform.

We had a fantastic conversation about the design voices in Luke’s head, his lunar origins, authors intentions in game design, his latin studies, the Burning Wheel RPG system, his favourite games and movies, how games and tabletop games in particular are seeing a renaissance thanks to crowdfunding and more.
