The Sinking: Doom Golem Rising

New RPG Product Reviews - 15 hours 21 min ago
Publisher: 0one Games
Rating: 5
Intended as the climax to the entire saga of The Sinking - a series of stand-alone yet linked adventures set in the Great City - this could also be run as a one-off adventure although it might be a bit confusing and would certainly involve a fair bit of explanation and even some handwaving to convince the characters that they are where you'll need them to be to begin the adventure. It would be much better if they are familiar with the Great City and have experienced at least some of the earlier adventures, that way they should have a handle on what is going on!

The adventure starts in media res with the characters stepping through a dimensional gate. From there, they have an underground complex to explore and some evil creatures to deal with, interestingly there is scope for interaction as well as combat... they can even be convinced to be helpful! The complex is described vividly and as they explore they should gain some understanding of what makes its denizens tick, and just how much danger previous visitors pose to surface dwellers particularly those living in the Great City.

As the adventure proceeds, the characters will be able to gather information and equipment necessary to defeat those who created the sinkhole in the first place before coming up through it to find them on the surface busy announcing that they are the heroes of the day... leading to a climactic fight between two 'doom golems' in the finest mecha style! The Great City won't forget this day in a hurry.

Throughout the adventure, there are references to earlier adventures in the series, which are explained well enough for those who have not played them although they'll work better if the characters have their earlier experiences to draw upon. There's plenty of scope for political double-dealing, or at least the exposure thereof, so players who prefer intrigue to brawling will also have plenty to do, whilst those who revel in combat will have a blast!

You ought to get several sessions of high-octane adventure out of this one, especially enjoyable if you have played at least some of the preceding adventures and can follow the strands that have led to this point. It's a cracker!

Announcing Gamer Romance Novels

Gnome Stew - 22 hours 31 min ago

We here at Gnome Stew are excited to announce our newest Engine Publishing project, and a bit of a departure from our regular fare – Gamer Romance Novels! Realizing, at a recent strategy meeting held over G+ hangouts, the untapped crossover market between romance novels and gamer supplements, Engine Publishing set out to utilize our writing resources to fill the gaps and create our new line – Gnomance Novels!

Our new line will be a semi-interactive reading experience of Gnome and Fantasy themed romance novels. Much like Choose Your Own Adventure books, Gnomance Novels will be interactive fiction pieces released primarily as online eBooks with options to switch between story paths using simple dice mechanics and romance options.

Our first offering in the series is nearly complete and we are proud to present The Spellbook by Phil Vecchione – releasing in one month!

 Featuring cover art and interior flipbook illustrations by acclaimed artist Matt Morrow.

 

“Somewhere,” muses Dorhim Menzu, while sitting on his porch in the moonight, “there were people making gnomish love.” The Spellbook, a Sword Coast-fried story of love-lost-and-found-again, revolves around a single time-honored romantic dilemma: will beautiful Prici Yolin stay with Mr. Paladin (to whom she happens to be engaged), or will she choose Yosbar, the romantic gnomish illusionist she left so many years ago?

 

Click here for a 10 page sample of the book.

 

While The Spellbook can be considered the pinnacle of Gnome Based Fantasy Romance, our ambitions don’t end there. We have many offerings in the pipeline from our authors.

West Of The Red Hat

By John Arcadian

Love was no stranger for Mark Johanson. The rancher turned studio jazz instrumentalist had given up his cowboy lifestyle for a moderate amount of fame playing in studio bands. When he booked the gig of a lifetime, doing the keystone triangle ding in a brand new Steely Dan song, he never expected to have his world swept out from under him. The audio mixer, Greta Ingridson, has something odd about her… something not quite human. Soon Mark is whisked away on a magical journey that expands his borders and makes him question whether magic is real. No matter what he doubts about the truth of the world and the existence of magical creatures alongside mundane humans, he never doubts his emerging feelings for Greta.

Gnodame Bovary

by Scott Martin

Gnodame Bovary is a new classic. Set in the stultifying rural countryside, Gemma marries but finds her desires unfulfilled. Even a daughter and loyal badger companion, starfur, are unable to fulfill her passionate wants. Initially, she is able to resist the handsome Leon, but the rakish potato and rutabaga farmer Rodolphe proves that long whiskers are irresistible…
Her quest for fulfillment challenges the roots of gnomish order and prosperity. Can one gnome finally have it all?

Gnomelander

by Angela Murray

Torn between two planes, Clarisse is a gentle but strong-willed cleric, thrown from the quiet normality of her average adventuring life into an older, more turbulent world of kilts, honor, war, and accented gnomes. It is there she finds herself inexorably drawn to the forbidden love of Gnomie MacFrasier, a gallant warrior who has vowed to protect against all that come against her despite her height and strange ways. Does she give in to her desire for the strong, yet diminutive arms of her Gnomish defender, or does she stay true to the adventuring party she left behind?

Gnome Hearts Gone Wild

By Matthew Neagley

Based on the critically acclaimed module! Gnomela Andergnome is courted by both the bad boy Dirk Dagger and the dashing General Muttonchops, but her heart belongs to the strong but silent Garden. Will she manage to win the heart of her stony beloved and get him to open himself up to her, or will one of her suitors win her heart away?

 

From Our “After Dark” Line
My Lover is a Dinosaur

By Martin Ralya

That irrepressible gnomish rogue, the dashing Lady Twerking Hotrump, is at it again! In My Lover is a Dinosaur, Lady Hotrump explores the forbidden land, a land lost in time where dinosaurs roam, and tastes forbidden love. When Lady Hotrump meets Duke Turgid Veinypole, it’s love — and lust — at first sight! Lady Hotrump never dreamed she could learn to love a T-rex, and Duke Veinypole never imagined he would fall for a gnome. But will it last when Duke Veinypole’s estranged wife, Duchess Lotsacleavage, returns from her expedition to Darkest Labia?

From Our Reworked Classics Line
Gnometeenth Night, Or Who Let Bloody Gnomes on The Stage!

By Troy Taylor

In this adaption of the classic stage production, our heroine, Vivivica, is washed ashore in a shipwreck, dons a red pointy gnome’s hat, and everyone instantly assumes she’s a male gnome, because, as we know, only male gnomes wear red pointy hats. In any event, The disguised Vivivica falls in love with the Duke, who we know is a Duke because his pointy red hat has a gold braid dangling from it. But the Duke is blind to Vivivica’s affections, because he’s in love with the countess, Maybeiwont, who is a proper female gnome because one stocking is a handsbreadth shorter than the other. Everthing gets wound around, however, because Maybeiwont AND the interloping Orsen Maybeishould (who doesn’t have a hat, but does have hairy feet) each lavish their affections on the disguised Vivivica. Who will take off their hat first and resolve this farce by setting each love into the arms of their true soulmate? Only time, and Vivivica’s twin brother (a strange gnome who prefers to wear a beret) will tell.

 

We look forward to sharing our Gnomish/Fantasy themed romance novel line with you and would love to hear your feedback. Do you have requests for a Gnomance Gnovel? Would you like to submit your own fan-fiction for consideration as a Gnomance Novel? Click here for the submission form.

Gizra.com: Shoov - a new UI regression tool

Planet Drupal - 31 March 2015 - 2:00pm

UI regression is one of these things that make total sense but is rarely put into practice, for a simple reason - it's hard.

UI regression checking in action

If you read the theory about it, it seems pretty simple. Take a screenshot of a certain page in your site which will be your "baseline" image, and from now on, whenever the code changes re-run an automated test that will compare a current screenshot with the baseline image.
