Dawn of the New Republic S4: Losing on all fronts

Battle ensues

The story continues from last session; heroes are in almost hopeless situation! 

The group starts to create a plan, but their time is limited; Imperial troops are starting to move towards the city very soon. Ferro's plan to run freighters towards walkers inside the city shield is abandoned as finding suitable one(s) would have required time and negotiations, and they would have been easy targets against heavy walkers' main cannons.

Diorama: Winter fight

Completed diorama photo

Completed diorama photo

This small diorama -photo was made for a small maxminis -competition. Some terrain props I've made before were used in the diorama, and potato flour to make the ground look more authentic. Sky was taken from a photo and added to it using Gimp.

Below is the original photo, with original background:

DnD Next - Really interesting character building methods?

If I get it right, DnD next will have some quite interesting features in character design. I've been tinkering my own game systems (but dropped the design when I found savage worlds which filled my rpg needs for now) and one feature I've been think of is having classes as a less rigid packages you can 'buy'. From what I've read, DDN will have an approaches to classes that resembles this. What I hadn't thought of was buying races as this kind of packages.

Dual-purpose model: Town hall / Storage shelf

Shelf/Administrative building

This building was made for terragenesis dual-purpose terrain competition. As my amount of models, terrains and miniatures keeps ever increasing, I also need more storage solutions for them. This building works as a decorative model that can be hung to wall, works as gaming terrain and stores nice amount of smaller terrain props.

Dungeon terrains

Overview to DDM dungeon terrain.

Lidda's bad day

This article is about basic dungeon terrains; If you have any terrains for roleplaying purposes, they are much likely to be stone wall -terrains like these!

Dungeon walls! Print, cut and glue walls for your rpg's

Downloadable dungeon walls in use

I find it surprising that there's no free, high-quality printable basic walls downloadable anywhere - so I decided to create such and share them. These dungeon (or castle) walls are partially uneven structure, like they were very old, and this way work better as cave wall or cliff.

The photo below shows the walls in use; they have been altered a little bit after printing these walls but they are very close to these.

Every campaign setting should have a Quickstart sheet

Dice box, miniatures, pen and eraser - preparing for a roleplaying game

Players are often lazy. While they enjoy playing games, they might not share Game Master's enthusiasm to the campaign setting and it's world, and as getting to know it could require reading somewhere from 10 to 150 pages, they might not really know or understand many things that come up during the game.
