Shadows of Esteren


Late Pledges Available For Shadows of Esteren

As much as we try and stay on top of things, sometimes we miss a Kickstarter we really wanted to back. Or maybe you just didn't have the funds at the time. It happens to us all. Thankfully, there's the Late Pledge period where those that weren't part of the campaign can still help out and get those great prices and exclusives. There just such a thing going on for the Shadows of Esteren RPG right now.

Friday Snippets

Time has been playing weird tricks this week, I feel. The first several days flew by. Thursday took an eternity. Now, today's doing a little bit of both. I feel like it should be later than it is, so it feels like it's been a long time since this morning... but I've also gotten a ton of stuff done. So I dunno. I do know that I'm possibly going to be playing some Guild Ball this evening and then some D&D tomorrow. So that's cool. Better pack myself full of energy with some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Imperial Knight Heads From Forge World, Knight Models Previews Suicide Squad Dice, Kromlech New Release: Legionary Shotgun, Angels and Demons join Flatminis 2D miniatures range, Shadows of Esteren Announces Partnership with Syrinscape, Talisman is Free to Play This Weekend Only, Comrades in Battle Reaches Funding Goal, 15mm Naval Crews Range is Back From Capitan Games, and Final Days for Tavern Masters Kickstarter.

Sometimes a Kickstarter comes and goes before you know it. Or perhaps you knew about it, but you just didn't have the money at the time when the campaign was coming to an end.
