Midweek Snippets

28 March 2018 - 11:00am
We’re halfway through the week, folks (well, those of us that work Monday-Friday, that is). I hope your week is going along well. For mine, I’ve been coming up with a new character for a D&D game starting up soon. I’ve never made a 5th Edition character before, but I’ve made dozens of them for […]

Steamforged Previews Bonesaw and Graves For Ratcatcher’s Guild

28 March 2018 - 7:00am
Well, ok, in a way, this isn’t so much a preview. Veteran Graves and Bonesaw have been around for quite a long time as part of the Mortician’s Guild. However, that doesn’t mean that things haven’t changed. The figures were originally created when the idea of Minor Guilds wasn’t around yet, and Veteran Graves, in […]

Judgement Wave 2 Up On Kickstarter

28 March 2018 - 6:00am
Long-time readers will know my love for big models. Sure, those 28-32mm minis are fine, but I really like larger figures. I like big minis and I cannot lie. That’s why a game like Judgement gets my attention. The game uses 54mm minis for its game. The first Kickstarter was a success, but like every […]

Many of you out there have a pet. Some have many. But even with several running around, there’s probably one that you feel “gets you” more than the others. You know that it’s the one you connect with the most. It is, in a sense, your familiar. In Familiars of Terra, everyone has that special […]

27 March 2018 - 2:00pm
Well-regulated hunting can be a positive factor in the health of a natural population. While that is up for some debate, many conservationists would agree.

At the GAMA Trade Show, John Cadice talked with ICv2 a bit about Kickstarter and the future of Ninja Division on the crowdfunding platform.

Catalyst Game Labs Names Anthony Scroggins as BattleTech Art Director

27 March 2018 - 12:00pm
Mechwarrior 2 was really the first video game I played a lot of. I’d run around all day in my Direwolf, blowing up enemies. And that Mechwarrior look has always stuck with me as something I’ve thought was “cool.” So, when I see that BattleTech is getting a new Art Director, Anthony Scroggins, and it’s […]

Podcast Roundup

27 March 2018 - 11:00am
The week continues along. We’ve made it to Tuesday. I hope your week started off alright. The cold, blustery Monday has turned into a warmer Tuesday morning. Also, when I went out to my car yesterday, I realized my normally blue car had a distinctly yellow/green/gold tinge to it. Yes, I’ve seen some of it […]

Ponyfinder: From the Ashes Adventure Up On Kickstarter

27 March 2018 - 10:00am
Terrible wars tend to have terrible consequences. When the Humanoids and the Fey went to war, it was truly a terrible war. At the climax, the energy that held back the Everglow was unleashed. This wave of primal forces reduced everything it touched to ashes. Very little was spared. In the aftermath, the survivors realized […]

Amsterdam. It was the trading house of the world for a while.

This could be very lucrative for enterprising merchants who knew what best to house […]

Highways & Byways Board Game Up On Kickstarter

26 March 2018 - 3:00pm
Many of my friends are driving their way back from Adepticon today (many having started their trips last night). It’s a heck of a drive from Atlanta to Chicago, one I’ve done a couple times, and I love it. I’d rather drive 15 hours than take a flight, personally. I’m sure some of you feel […]

Wyrd Previews Fire Golem

26 March 2018 - 1:00pm
I’m sure that in a couple months, I’m going to be saying, “damn, I wish it was colder!” This is Atlanta, after all. But at least today, it’s cold and blustery outside. I wouldn’t mind a Fire Golem around to warm my hands up near (and maybe make some s’mores). But you don’t actually get […]

Battlefields: Now Available in Print On Demand

26 March 2018 - 12:00pm
While having the digital version of a gaming book is great (you can carry it on any device, they’re usually pretty easy to search through, and you can have a whole library in the palm of your hand), some people like to have the actual book. I’m included in that (a book’s batteries never run […]
