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.

Witch+Craft 5th Edition Supplement Up On Kickstarter

Crafting. Many of us would like to possibly do more of it in our RPGs, but there's not a very robust system for it. So, GMs are just left sort of shrugging and going, "I dunno. We'll just make something up." Which is fine, but not what a lot of people want. Thankfully, there's Witch+Craft, a new supplement for 5th edition that brings in crafting, as well as working with magic in a home-grown, Etsy-style. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
