Kickstarter: Conan RPG

The Conan RPG Kickstarter from Modiphius is closing in on $300,000.  I backed it based on the Quickstart rules.  There are some definitely interesting ideas in the rules, but I haven't had a chance to try them in actual play yet.  In any case, it's good to see Conan making a return to the RPG scene.

Kickstarter: World Architect Cards

Simian Circle Games, creators of the wonder RPG Far Away Land are doing a Kickstarter for their
World Architect Cards.  The cards are designed to allow you to quickly create overland maps, and there is still plenty of time to get in on the action.  If you haven't checked out any of their products. head over and have a look.  They make great stuff, and the artwork is fantastic!

Weird Adventure Idea Wednesday

Here is this week's weird adventure idea.  If you're looking for an adventure seed, why not give this one or one of the earlier ones a try?

On a stormy morning you happen upon a flamboyant soothsayer near the docks.  The soothsayer excitedly explains to you that 13 days ride to the east, deep within the Withered Wilderness of the Savage Winds, stands The Ancient Chapel of Oblivion.  It is whispered that there is hidden the The Transparent Ceramic Saber of Gelding.  But beware, for the soothsayer advises you that the Mad Barbarian Volgrag the Skull Trampler slays any that dare to approach the chapel!

Terrain Tuesday: New walls

Here is a shot of a couple of more walls that I finished over the weekend.  I like this archway a lot better than the previous one that I made.  It didn't hurt that I used my hot styrofoam knife to incise the blocks around the arch, giving much better delineation to the archway stones and making for an overall better look.  I've almost got enough pieces for my planned diorama now.  These definitely aren't Dwarven Forge quality, but being a bit taller, they work better as photographic backgrounds for miniatures, and they certainly are fun to make.
