The Cabal of Eight Pt.16: Fight for Sleep

Posted on April 27th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The young mages had split their take from the Under-City Vaults and looked to hide the undivided booty someplace in the cabal room. After thoroughly searching the chamber Gornix (played by Gil) was able to find a small alcove behind a false brick in the hearth. They stashed a bag of gems (3 diamonds, 3 […]

Some RPG news from Modiphius…

Hi there,  
Today we’re pleased to announce Modiphius has taken over publishing duties for Cold & Dark, a chilling, mature sci-fi RPG from Mischa L Thomas, which will light up sci-fi and horror fans who love titles like Aliens, Doom, Starcraft and Dead Space.
The Cold & Dark core book is now available on DriveThruRPG and if you’d like to try Cold & Dark for yourself, there’s also a free Quickstart to help you get acquainted with the system. 
Here’s some further details: 
Dying is easy, life is hard and pain is a given… 
Centuries from now mankind lives on in the Sirius galaxy, an enormously vast and dense system of stars. It’s a greedy industrial society run by corporations and the Governmental Industrial Complex. The onslaught of strip-mining has stirred something terrible best left buried and forgotten. 
The sci-fi universe of Cold & Dark is a frightening and violent world. In the reaches of space the protagonists have to face known as well as unknown horrors. 
The players take on the roles of people who have chosen to live on the edge as site engineers, corsairs and deep space salvagers. Only out there in the big empty, on the verge of disaster facing the horror, do they flourish and realise their full potential. This is sci-fi at its darkest. 
Some game features. 
  • Starmap and information about 18 solar systems.
  • A look into the mysterious religion known as Infinitology.
  • 19 avatar packages the players can use as an inspiration in order to create their avatars.
  • Stats and examination of the violent and parasitic Ripper race — The greatest threat to life as we know it.
  • Unique equipment such as the COG — Customised Operation Gear —the personal nano-tech suit worn by those working in space. Calibrate it by choosing among dozens of applications and upgrades.
  • A simple and cohesive system which allows the players to manage their own ships and engage in everything from piracy to deep space salvage operations.
Rules and information regarding VPS — Void Psychosis Syndrome, a mental illness which has the power to bring the whole of humanity to its knees.
We hope you enjoy this plunge into a dark and deadly sci-fi universe and look out for more great releases coming from Modiphius soon,
Best wishes,
Modiphius Entertainment

The latest from Chaosium…including some Runequest news…

#45 the straight scoop from the well of chaos…

New RuneQuest edition to be known as
RUNEQUEST: ROLEPLAYING IN GLORANTHA

The new edition of the iconic roleplaying game RuneQuest will be formally known as RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha, or ‘RQG’ for short, Chaosium has announced.

First published by Chaosium in 1978, over the ensuing decades the RuneQuest game has gone through a number of editions with different publishers and licensees. The new edition returns to Chaosium where it started and where, in its heyday, was second only to Dungeons & Dragons in terms of sales.

More details about RQG at the link: http://www.chaosium.com/blog/rqgnew-runequest-edition-to-be-known-as-runequest-roleplaying-in-glorantha

RUNEQUEST QUICKSTART FIRST NEW RQG PRODUCT
The first new RQG product is the RuneQuest Quickstart, which will be available in June for Free RPG Day and at the Chaosium website from July 1, 2017.

The Quickstart collects all the essential rules for RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha and presents them in abbreviated form.

It also includes a new adventure The Broken Tower and 5 pregen characters, ready to play.

RQG WILL NOT BE KICKSTARTED
Chaosium President Rick Meints also revealed that the new edition would not be launched with a Kickstarter.

The products scheduled for 2017 release are the RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha core rules, a Gloranthan Bestiary, and a scenarios book featuring adventures by game design legends Steve Perrin (RQ1&2), Ken Rolston (RQ3’s ‘rune czar’, Morrowwind, Elder Scrolls), Chris Klug (DragonQuest II, James Bond 007 RPG) and the ‘grand shaman of gaming’ himself Greg Stafford.

RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha is scheduled for a Christmas 2017 release.

Fortunately the spell took hold and the creature was loath to approach much less attack him. Fauna (played by Jenn) tried to cast Sleep on the serpent but […]

Spiders Are Done

Posted on March 27th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

Anyway I have finished off the Reaper Bones Spider Swarms for Savage Worlds and Dungeon and Dragons. It’s good to have something else finished. All the time consuming drying has been done already so it was a fairly quick process.

Maybe I am getting work done because I am naffed off that I am finding the urge to do something. The house is generally never cleaner that when I am naffed off and it is pretty clean today not to mention getting a load of jobs done around the house. The truth is probably that I am a bit naffed off with myself because of what I am doing or not doing. Decisions to be made I think.

I went with brown as the main colour with a little bit of a wash and a highlight. Perhaps it’s not as menacing as black but I have just done the beetle swarm in black, blue wash and grey and I didn’t want the two  bases turning out like carbon copies of each other (I am not sure that I like the phrase carbon copy any more, it makes me sound older than I feel). When I think back this model this is actually quite a pricey model. £7 of figures and a £1 of bases plus a few bits and pieces. It’s certainly the biggest base I have ever used. Now I just need to figure out a way to transport them.

I have also done a bit more written work on some post apocalyptic stuff I have been working on. I have been working on it for a good long time now, you would hope it would be finished by now.

Still, I am tired now.
