Beasts & Barbarians campaign start: Loads of fun!

Fight for the ship continues

Today, I finally started my Beasts & Barbarians campaign. We were able to start after our little girl got to bed and played more than 4 hours. Savage Worlds wasn't that fast this time, the last fight of the night took quite long. Still, it was eventful and full of action, so I don't think a bit of slowness was a bad thing. And as everyone's getting more experience with the system, I have no doubts about the fights getting faster.

Dread Sea Dominions Today

Welcome to the crash course to Dread Star Realms!

When there came speak of Beasts & Barbarians quick start sheet with Piotr, he mentioned that GRAmel folk are currently very busy but hoped a fan could do it.

I'm mostly using D&D miniatures but also other cheap miniatures, mainly from mage knight/clix series.

Review: Beasts & Barbarians Golden Edition

New cover

If you've been reading my posts, you know I've become a huge fan of Gramel and it's Beasts & Barbarians products. When Golden Edition came out, I run to buy the pdf right away. This new 210-paged document gives you mainly two new things: New images (which I like a lot, even if I had a small hope of having color graphics instead B&W), adventure generator, npc collection and a bunch of new monsters.

Review: Death of a tyrant (Beasts & Barbarians adventure)

Death of a Tyrant -cover

A while ago I got my hands of Beasts & Barbarians and realized it was a perfect setting for the Sword & Sorcery campaign I was planning. I've had plans to run only small sandbox -using adventures with little or no preparation, so I wasn't first planning to buy this adventure even if GRAmel had became my favourite publisher. But I was curious to see what the Gazetteer -part of the adventure had so soon I realized having bought the pdf and wanted to use the adventures in my game.
