It's Monday. Who would've expected that?
... Ok, so everyone expected that. But still. We're back again in the office and it's time to make your gaming tables look good. Another time with just a single piece for you. Remember, everyone, I'm but one bear. If you know of cool gaming stuff going on out there like terrain kits and whatnot, let me know about them via the News Submission form. It's not just for industry people, but anyone who's got a hot tip on a gaming story.

Anyway, today we've got: Hive City Fountain Available From Tabletop Scenics.

Monday Terrain Corner

It's Monday. I don't know what you did over the weekend, but I did... a decent amount of cleaning. Maybe not as much as I could've/would've/should've, but I came across Hot Ones on YouTube. Yeah, I know, many of you are already huge fans and have been for quite some time. They're in Season 8 and I just found them. It happens. But seriously, most of my weekend was spent binging that show.
For those of you that don't know, it's an interview show where a guy interviews all sorts of celebrities: chefs, comedians, recording artists, stuff like that. Oh, and they eat progressively hotter chicken wings as they go along, ending with stuff that's got 2mil+ Scoville ratings. That's a thing.
Anyway, what does that have to do with gaming? Well, a lot of the gamers I know are chow-hounds, and many like spicy food. So there's that. But, I know, you want to know about terrain. So we'll get to that.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Dead Horses and Dead Cows from Warlord Games, Hive City Transit Stations Available from Tabletop Scenics, and Sci-fi/PostApocalyptic 3d Printable Terrain Up On Kickstarter.

It's cold out. Like, really cold out. And, I mean, I'm here in Atlanta, which, relatively speaking, isn't all that cold. But back up in Chicago where I grew up... yeah, that's cold. Best to stay inside and do some gaming. With how cold it is outside, it seems all the terrain-makers are taking a bit of a break. Just a quick Terrain Corner for you today.

We have: Grimdark Statues Bundle Available From Bits of War.

Someone decided it needed to be Monday again. While I'm not all that thrilled with the decision, I do know that it's going to be a short week. So that's gonna be good. Thursday is Thanksgiving here in the US, and so I'll be off Thursday and Friday, just chillin' and trying to avoid all the fracas at the Maul. In the meantime, though, let's get your gaming tables lookin' as good as my dining room table will be this Thursday.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Frosty Plain Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, TerrainCrate Town & Battlefield available to order now, and Hive City Habitat Available From Tabletop Scenics.

Thursday Terrain Corner

Welcome to November. While October might be my favorite month in terms of weather, November contains my favorite holiday of the year: Thanksgiving (yes, Canadians, I know you have Thanksgiving in October). I've got 4 weeks to prep for Thanksgiving and then Thanksgiving 2: Thank Harder on Friday. But while I make sure my dinner table will look great, I currently need to make sure that your gaming tables look great.

The week is rolling along. Mine's been going by pretty quickly. Being busy will do that, I suppose. Lots of stuff going on, so the time goes by. Looking forward to the weekend. Not too much planned for me, but that's entirely the point. Sometimes you gotta just do nothing and be happy about that. But that doesn't mean that other weekends won't be filled with gaming, and that means wanting good-looking gaming tables.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Official Butcher's Guild Mat Available From Deep-Cut Studio, Dungeon Flagstones RPG Encounter PVC Mat Available From Loke Battlemats, Dust Town Mat Available From Pwork Wargame, and Hive City Arbitratorum Available From Tabletop Scenics.

Monday Terrain Corner

So, upsides and downsides. Downside: it's Monday. Upside: it's October. Downside: the weekend is really far away. Upside: I have gaming already lined up for said weekend. Downside: I was reaaally comfy this morning and didn't want to get out of bed. Upside: It's been a pretty decent morning, so far, with some really great e-mails in my inbox on some really cool projects I'm helping out with. Also upside: we've got some terrain articles for you. Also, also upside: After the first "downside/upside," my mental narration turned into Tom Bodett's voice, a-la Good Idea/Bad Idea.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Plastic Church Terrain From Warlord Games, Darkburg Gaming Mat Available From Pwork Wargames, and New Triumphal Arch Available From Tabletop Scenics.

Well, it's the price we pay for having a weekend: there has to be a week to go with it. Can't have up without down, light without dark, left without right, weekend without week. But we'll make it back to the weekend eventually. Also, it's Autumn! Woo! *dances around with pumpkins in the falling leaves* So, as it's Monday, lets get your gaming tables looking good.

Well, it's Monday once again. I can't really say I'm all that thrilled about it. But waddyagonnado? I can't speed up time or alter the harvest (though, entirely tangentially, I had some just-picked Honeycrisp apples this weekend that were (censored) amazing. So that harvest is going well). Anyway, seeing as it's Monday, let's get you a new crop of terrain stories.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Lady Dragon Running RPG Mat Kickstarter, New Line of 15mm Terrain is available at Crescent Root Studio, and Hive City Cathedral Available From Tabletop Scenics.

Thursday Terrain Corner

We've made it to Thursday. Just a bit more work and we'll get back to the weekend. I'm sure we can do it. And while I'm thinking my weekend might be filled with a deep-cleaning of the apartment, that doesn't mean you can't go and do some gaming. In fact, if someone out there could do some extra gaming for me, that'd be appreciated. And when you're out gaming, you'll probably want to have some nice terrain. So let's take care of that.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Industrial Pipe - 45 degrees Available From Tabletop Scenics, Acheson Creations' Last Two Viking Buildings Now Available, and Dark Gotham Game Mat Available From Pwork Wargame.

Wooooooo!
What a great day. It's Weekend Eve, one of my favorite days of the week (as you all well know). I've got D&D tomorrow, and I'm more-than-ready to play (we'll be streaming again, for anyone interested). But before we get there, we need to finish this day off. And to do that, we should snack on some bite-sized gaming stories.

This "it's a regular week again" continues along. Actually, so far, it doesn't feel as long as last week felt. Granted, I've found Wednesday tends to be the long day out of the bunch, so we'll see how this one continues along. But if we're going to make the long slog back to the weekend, we need to have plenty of rations in the form of bite-sized gaming stories.

The week continues to roll along. We're already halfway through, technically, as we make our way to the weekend again. I'm excited, since it's another D&D weekend coming up. There's still a lot of work to do before we get there, though, so we need to be well-fed on bite-sized gaming stories.

We've finally made it to Friday! I don't know about you, but this was a really long week for me. Partially because I've been anxious to get back to playing D&D. Our second session will be tomorrow, and I can't wait. Later today, I'm going to pick up snacks and whatnot for the game. But I also need to nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories. And that's just what we've got for you here.

It's the latter half of the week. Just another few days and we'll be back to the weekend. As always, I can't wait. I've got D&D coming up Saturday. Our last session was over a month ago, and it was just an introductory one. This'll be the real "Session 1" where we can actually get into the meat of our campaign. I'm ridiculo-excited about it. But, before we get there, we need to get your gaming tables looking good.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: New Modular Bridges from Tabletop Scenics, New Farmer's Guild Pitch From Deep-Cut Studio, and Dungeonfog Open Beta Launches.
