Today's Cool Thing - Shadow of the Demon Lord

December 30th, 2015

Published by: Jeff Hall

So, I needed another dark fantasy RPG like I needed a second nose. Between Lamentations of the Flame Princess, Shadows of Esteren, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Witch Hunter, various iterations of Ravenloft, and endless stream of well produced contenders in this ring, I could die without seeing another one.[...]

Let's start this by being completely honest: I didn't expect much from The King is Dead.[...]

There hasn't been a miniature game that I have been as excited about as Frostgrave in a long time. This new title from Osprey's Wargames Line is the spiritual successor to Mordheim, one of my favorite games of all time.[...]

Today's Cool Thing - Star Wars Armada

December 5th, 2014

Published by: Philip Lyons

It’s one of the most iconic movie opening scenes of all time. First we see a desert planet with two moons, far below, then a red-and-white starship barrels onto the screen, shooting furiously at something behind it. Brilliant fire sparkles around the ship as it clearly flees from…something.[...]

Today's Cool Thing - The Whispering Vault RPG

December 4th, 2014

Published by: George

The Whispering Vault RPG is a game about monsters that hunt other monsters so that the cosmos doesn’t defile itself. The Whispering Vault really isn’t like anything else I’ve read or played. The game’s premise is super ambitious but is executed in such an elegant, playable fashion that it’s really accessible after a reading of the core book. It’s also very episodic and the duties of the GM are supposed to rotate a bit so that every player gets to experience a different angle of the strange, dark story.[...]

TODAY'S COOL THING - NOVEMBER 3, 2014: KING FOR A DAY

November 3rd, 2014

Published by: Paul Butler

King for a Day is a system-free setting and sandbox campaign for any fantasy role-playing game. A dense manual containing all the writing you should need for months of play, Jim Pinto's King for a Day is a really cool product that is easily overlooked due to the designer's somewhat conservative sense of graphic design.[...]

October 30th, 2014

Published by: Paul Butler

To suggest that Elfquest had a serious impact on me would be an understatement. Despite it being, essentially a comic book, I list it among my favorite works of fiction of all time. I am overjoyed that the first major story arc is back in a print and available from Dark Horse.[...]

Published by: Parker Howard

What am I geeking out over right now? Surprisingly, it's not anything from GenCon. It's the brain child of two Magic: the Gathering hall of famers,[...]
