For some time, I've been looking at Future Armada's Invictus with a curious eye, but I haven't had actual need for it. A few days ago I run a session of Babylon 5 and went to check what DriveThruRpg has to offer. I had been looking at High Space's Euphoria as I was planning to use it's setting Lantern as a base for the game.
If you still don't know what all the fuzz about Fragged Empire has been - or if you haven't heard of the game, then it's time to check it out - the kickstarter ends in 5 days! In Short, Fragged Empire is a scifi rpg, where you play descendants of humans, starting to climb up from their holes after a big war. The game and the world are designed by a graphic designer and you can see it from the samples on the Kickstarter page and game homepage.
High Space briefly, with minor spoilers: An inspiring space/scifi setting that gives you an option of running a long epic story or Traveller -like small adventures. The main story feels a bit like Babylon 5 spiced with some cthulhu/galactica -like elements and unique, 'realistic' style space battles.
I've been looking at various Savage Worlds toolkits/companions for a while, and finally I found the one I had been looking for most in a sale (Drivethrurpg's Christmas in July). I've been trying to find Sci-fi world builder toolkit in sale for several times but it has never been included in a sale when I've checked.
My Beasts & Barbarians campaign starts soon, and I wanted to take a few inspirational photos while waiting for the game. These diorama-like photos have only few pieces of terrain, but represent situations that might well be epic moments in a Sword & Sorcery game.
Did you assemble and paint WW2 military aircraft as a kid? I did, although I really didn't like much the glues and paints used in them, the ones I'm using currently in modelling and with miniatures are way easier to handle, an healthier too I guess. I also read Commando -comics and was generally fascinated about technology of The Great War. If you are also Plasticrack addict(tm), you'll be easily tempted to these.
Moon nazis will land on USA too! This is important news, as majority of my readers - and a lot of potential movie fans - are from US. I'm talking about Iron Sky, a movie that no-one dared to make in Hollywood. Iron Sky has been sold to over 30 countries already. In USA, at least 10 largest cities will see this epic movie, distributed by Entertainment One. The movie is planned to be debut in US in april-may.
Galactica is one of the games I'm planning to run with Savage Worlds in future. It's most likely to be a mini-campaign, consisting of ~5 sessions. As a miniature and prop -fanatic, I've gathered some props for the game already.
Most of the miniatures I'll use in the game will be sames I use in my cyberpunk campaign. Soldiers, men in suits, commoners, they all fit in. I've bought a few cheap clix I'll use as pilots, even if they don't have perfect match for the suit they'll work:
My earlier victory area flags have been quite popular, and because of a request, I've made a new set of flags. I haven't been able to print them myself, so the photo below is from dano903 at http://www.axisandalliesunderground.com and http://community.wizards.com . If you're interested in these flags prepared and based, ask him!
