Character Workshop: Nzail Gbak

I still love making characters. An opportunity cropped up to join a game by an excellent DM. Part of what drove the game was our mutual frustration with the offerings available (or not, more precisely) on the boards—of course, between then and now a few cropped up, but none have the punch of this one. Huge, […]

More Painted Malifaux!

I’ve got Jakob Lynch painted, and his crew’s rapidly reaching painted completion. I admit I’m apprehensive about the female Illuminated, because there’s a dress involved and I just don’t know if I’ll do it justice. So, we’ve got the Illuminated, which I just glued to their bases. I want the “Vomiting Brilliance onto a dude” […]

Character Workshop: Council of Thieves

Having jumped back into Play-by-Post as a writing/creativity enhancer, I’m on the paper chase for a couple of games. My goal is to keep things locked down to no more than two, ideally in different systems. I’m also keeping my applications along the way locked at two, meaning some games may fill up while I’m […]

Prime Time Picture Dump!

I genuinely don’t use puns this often in actual speech; there’s something about needing to throw a title on a post, though, that turns me into my worst self. I actually ran a search through previous posts to be sure I hadn’t already used “Prime Time.” I wouldn’t have put it past me. Anyway, I’ve got my […]

Big Trouble on the Tabletop

It’s Sunday, but my wife and I have already managed two games of Malifaux! Pitting the Viktorias against Mei Feng, the battles had the flavor of a truly incredible action movie. Swords bisecting bodies, kicks crumpling armor, and capering little fire monsters running around; I’d watch that! For both games, my wife’s list was as […]

Our Golden Arches are Comprised of Faerie Fire

Just now, in the shower, I was thinking about Magic Missiles. Specifically, I was thinking about how the party for my weekly Encounters game has apparently “lost” their wand of Magic Missiles. They received one for defeating an earlier foe, a necromancer whose downfall sort of took three sessions. By this I mean it took […]

Soooooo….MORE Khorne, eh!?

My primal scream from last week retains all of its anguish, sorrow, and perceived urgency. I still want more Slaanesh, still think it’s a tragedy I don’t have it. I had a conversation the day after posting about Khorne where a friend casually said “Well, aren’t they getting rid of Slaanesh?” It’s horrifying that such […]
