New Releases Available From CMON

Lots of releases coming out today. CMON's got several, themselves. If you're a fan of Rum & Bones, there's a new faction, some new mercenaries, as well as some deep sea creatures available. If you're a fan of simple bluffing games, there's Kronia, which is one I personally enjoy. These are available now at your LGS as well as online.

Cutthroats Mercenaries Added To Rum & Bones Kickstarter

In a group of individuals as you have when dealing with those involved with piracy, you're going to come across the ones that are just in it for themselves, trying to get as much money as they possibly can, their other crewmates be damned. Normally, such a character on board a ship that requires teamwork to operate is a bad thing. But if the individual is sufficiently skilled, it may be worth the risk to have them along. Such is the case with the Cutthroats, a new set of mercenary figures that are a new add-on for the Rum & Bones Kickstarter.

Blutrausch Legion Added To Rum & Bones Kickstarter

Yo, ho, ho, and a bottle of Sobe Citrus Energy (being a teetotaler, I don't drink rum. And besides, the vitamin C will help stave off scurvy). The wild winds in the world of Rum & Bones has brought forth some strange creatures in this Kickstarter campaign. There's been the denizens of the deep. There's been the fairy tale crew. Now the greenskins are getting into the action with the Blutrausch Legion.
Also, I'm glad I just have to type Blutrausch and not actually say it, since I have no idea how to pronounce it.

Michael Shinall Does Reddit AMA For Rum & Bones: Second Tide

At Adepticon, people are able to stand around and chat with game designers about the upcoming projects they have been working on. But that's a pretty rare thing, in general. Not everyone can make it out to a show. And then, the designer might be busy or such. Panels are one way you can find out about stuff, but you still sort of have to be there. It's a good thing, then, that the internet is a thing (since, you know, I also work there). Designer Michael Shinall recently did an Ask Me Anything (AKA - AMA) on Reddit.
