Miniature container craft – Monster manual comes to life!

Because crafting is fun. Especially Game-related crafting. And 3E monster manual looked cooler.

Now that I've been moving towards using maps and tiles as terrain instead of 3D terrain, as most of my games take place somewhere else than at my home, I've had an itch to craft something. Seeing some very cool Dice pouches and pondering what would be optimal way to categorize and store my minis gave me an idea of making a Monster Manual -style miniatures box for my core miniatures collection.

A jewel from Pathfinder miniatures for every DDM collector

Medusa, standing at the door of a temple

While I have little need for Pathfinder miniatures after collecting a large amount of D&D miniatures, I found one diamond from the collection that every DDM collector should be aware of - Medusa. D&D monster design decisions have moved away from classic themes since the late releases of 3E line, and I haven't been happy most of these changes. What I did like is what they did to Lamia. But medusa, just like dryad, were transformed into something that wasn't so main stream.

Agnes, Two-gun ex-mercenary that knows how to taunt and intimidate.

Savage Cyberworld, session 6: Getting spooky. REALLY spooky.

Checking Chernobyl Mect's platform

After the last job, PC's had been getting some cyber and healing. Before they could leave for well-deserved vacation, Ivan got two calls. First, Ivan's police contact called and told Ivan that Italian mafia has put a price on his head (and hindrance was updated to major) - in the last session, the Italians closed with no guns when Ivan & Emanuele turned the confrontation lethal.

Savage Cyberworld, session 5: A job worth a million

Fight in the restaurant

In the last session, the pc's got a million dollar job from their new big employer. Tony was killed by Joker's missed grenade attack, and this time we had two new characters in play. One of them was actually the first character created, but the player hadn't been able to get in the game in earlier sessions. Ivan 'The rat' is a bit  untidy fixer and Emanuele is an assassin with cyber legs who's quite nerd, playing often a assassin -themed computer game and also talking about it to everyone (who are not interested). Player of Agnes wasn't present.

New D&D miniatures: optimized for roleplayers, how will the game turn out?

One of the more interesting GenCon news was the new D&D miniatures line. This product seems to be designed specifically for roleplayers (long-awaited themed sets +larger tiles), but includes a game of it's own. The game is diceless but uses cards; No-one knows yet how will the game be, but description has similarities with the awarded Memoir '44. The game may also give hints of what will be in 5E
