    If Hasbro Pulls the Plug....

    What will folks do if Hasbro pulls the plug on D&D? The Escapist article describes Hasbro 'marginalizing' properties that generate less than 50-100 million dollars. If (and hopefully that is a big IF) D&D has fallen below whatever magic number Hasbro has chosen, what will folks do? And how...

    D&D 5E A 5e BECMI?

    It has been mentioned on several topics lately, sometimes by me, that 5e might be well served by looking back to BECMI. I will admit to a bias - more than half my adult players got started in the game with BECMI and the Cyclopedia. TSR had to have done something right - two of those players are...

    Christmas 2011 RPG Holiday Sales?

    Whether you are already out hunting for presents, or hunkering under the desk until January 2nd, the holiday shopping season has begun. So, a place to put RPG gaming sales for people to either flock to madly, or avoid, while making finger crosses to drive the retail demons away. First, my...

    If WotC Released D&D 3.75 Tomorrow....

    Looking at the thread that covers RPG sales via Amazon I noticed that 3.5 is still selling well, not all that far behind either 4e or Pathfinder. So, a mental exercise: If WotC were to announce a revised version of the D&D 3.X architecture would you be interested? Assumptions: 0: WotC...

    What 3.X/D20 Material Do You Use With Pathfinder?

    Right now, I think that the rules from Heroes of Battle is almost the last remaining WotC rules supplement in frequent use, or at least the one that comes to mind. Corsair, Book of the Sea, and the mass combat rules from Book of Strongholds & Dynasties are also in use. Other than that...? Not...

    An Impressive (And Expensive) Dragon

    From Cool Mini or Not - a freakin' brute of a dragon, with a brute of a price tag - 3.5 lb of resin. For the record, CMON does some of the best miniatures that I have ever seen in resin. The rider is 30mm, to give a sense of scale. The price is currently $250, down from $300. :confused...

    How Much Steam, Punk?

    Read both the campaign guide and the first adventure. It does not feel like the technomagic (or magiotechnology) of Iron Kingdoms to me. I do not know if steam powered golems and armor is likely, or if the aim is more at historical steam development. In other words, how much steam, punk? :p...

    ZEITGEIST Miniatures for Zeitgeist?

    For me at least the setting seems to have a late 19th Century feel, at least politically and steam technology wise. [Insert long narration by James Burke of how new methods developed for boring high pressure cylinders aided both the development of longer range guns and higher compression steam...

    Zeigeist Setting Book?

    I was just wondering if there was any plan to publish a setting book for Zeitgeist? There certainly looks to be plenty of room for adventures outside of the current path. :) The Auld Grump, actually looking at espionage adventures.....

    [Spoilers] Miniature for Kingmaker Climax?

    Thinking about the miniature for Nyrissa, Dryad Queen- The official mini, pretty much as she is described. or this one - it has a feel of power and madness that I like, but I might need to change her stats a bit.... (Size, for one....) Scary thing is that there is a bigger one in the...

    Raging Heroes?

    Anyone seen any of the Raging Heroes minis up close? The pictures look, well, dayum! :) This little lady might find her way into the final scenario for Kingmaker. Pricey, but if anyone can confirm that she looks like that, and can let me know about materials.... I first went looking because...

    PDF Terrain

    Just a spot to discuss interesting PDF terrain, from various publishers. Right now I want to mention Dave Graffam's Inventor's House - Multiple layers allow a great deal of customization. I can easily see this building being used for Warhammer or for Deadlands. :) The only downside is the...

    Terraclips Terrain and Terrain LinX Terrain

    Wyrd Miniatures and World Works Games are coming out (again) with a collaborative effort for some modular terrain for the Malfaux game. The initial release was supposed to be last year at GenCon, but the manufacturer took some, ummm, liberties with the specifications. (In other words the things...

    NPC Spellcasters, Witch or Adept

    I just put the finishing touches on a setting I wrote for hire (payment was a computer... gotta love the barter system :) ). Totaling up the NPC spellcasters I have twenty-four witches out of forty-five spellcasters, most just got changed to the Hedge Witch archetype from Ultimate Magic. Most...

    Mantic Unpainted Plastics

    I have been busy painting a big pile of Mantic plastics, bought during one of their sales. Bought in an army set they are quite reasonable in price. The plastic figures are intended for wargaming, so individuality is not great, better for nameless opponents than either PCs or major NPCs. The...

    Dungeon Master’s Keep - $150 GM Screen?

    Dungeon Master’s Keep - $150 GM Screen? Looks nice, and it is official for 4e, but ouch! Mind you, it does not look like it will be joining in the Edition War - not caring what game it is being used for, let alone edition, and it looks solid. Not the kind of thing that I would buy for...

    Christmas/Holiday Gaming Sales 2010

    Hmmm, I don't think RPGNow had a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale this year, though some of their publishers did. I should have thought of making a list and checking it twice a thread for Black Friday, but it didn't occur to me until just now. :( Has anyone got any links to decent RPG sales for...

    Any Replacement for E.N. World/RPGNow Affiliate?

    I preferred to do all my PDF shopping through the E.N. World Affiliate, so a portion would go to helping support this site. Since that program is now gone, is there any replacement in the works? The Auld Grump

    Fallout: New Vegas Preorder Promotions....

    Frickin' frackin' promotional gimmick. I really hate when folks do stuff like this. :( Several major retailers are getting Pre-order Packs as extra content for FO:NV, with each getting different promotions. In order of my preference: Steam and Walmart -- The Caravan Pack: * Lightweight...

    [Highmoon Games] Monkey God Material Gone?

    Hmmmm, I tried to link to a couple old Monkey God scenarios in the EN World shop (Edge of Dreams and All the King's Men - both excellent) and could not find them. Will they be returning, either as OGL or Pathfinder products? The Auld Grump
