The Con Game I Never Forgot When I was twelve or so I attended Trumpeter‘s annual Salute gaming convention. That year it was held downtown in conference rooms at Robson Square near the Law Courts. And I played in one of the most enjoyable games I’ve ever encountered. It was a PvP (Party vs Party)… Read more »
I’ve always loved the Anti-Paladin as described in Dragon 39. This guy: When I was a kid I spent a good number of months rolling up these bad guys and their retinues. I’d map out their castles, which were always skull-shaped and carved into the living rock. I’d imagine them at their scheming best. Life… Read more »
Mutants and Death Ray Guns is a game about primary groups. Ditto Metamorphosis Alpha. That’s a big reason why I like both so much. Primary groups in the context of the two games are akin to the spear-bow-knife-axe hunting party of the past and the modern Burning Man theme camp. One of my favourite things… Read more »
After running some well-received demo games of MDRG at Trumpeter’s Salute ’15 this past month I’ve hatched an idea: This as this via this to this, all at this. Cül right?

In case you don’t already know Atomic Robo is right up there with ligers. And the only way Atomic Robo could be better is if he was a talking — and smoking — Six-gun Gorilla. Lucky for us: Ape here; Bot here.
The Spanish Christian women of Tortosa stand ready to protect their persons and property from the dastardly Moors. Rather than recap: Orden del Hacha Second Crusade There’s a whack of manufacturers in there: Lead Adventure, Micro Art Studio, Freebooter, Reaper, Otherworld, and Vesper-on. I also have (unpainted, mind) her, her. and her. And… Read more »
So this happened: Inspired by this post on the all-round impressive Agis Neugebauer’s site I ordered the pictured MaKs from the equally impressive coolkits (scroll down to the 1/35th scale figs). On the left is the Fireball Prowler in flight and on ground. Right!? Next on my list: SAFS-tastic! In case you don’t know: MaK… Read more »
