HAPPY HALLOWEEN – Treat from Dark Mook

For one month only, Adam Steel, a.k.a. Dark Mook, has provided us with a great Halloween themed Freebie from his Survivial Horro Line of Models

A great werewolf and human hunter/survivor great for any modern horror RPG or tabletop Miniatures skirmish. The models are 30mm scale with full front and backside art. Adam Steel has a great art style.

If you’ve never encountered any of Adam’s Occult Terrors line this is a perfect opportunity to get your hands on some.

Thank you Adam, for supplying us with this tasty Halloween treat !!

Serene Fist Set 2 Ninjas and Samurai a plenty – New Paper Miniatures by Okum Arts Review

Serene Fist Set 2

This second release to the Serene Fist line, by David Okum, is even better than the unbelievably great fist set.

Even though it’s advertised as a 48 figure set (12 poses in 4 colors each), there is actually and unadvertised “Easter Egg” layer with an additional 11 models, 5 of which are unique to that layer. I won’t spoil what they are, but there are some whimsical and some mythological in the mix. This brings the set up to 59 figures for the measly price of $ 2.50.

Another nice feature included in this set is that the text is included as it’s own separate layer. Allowing you to disable the text when printing and saving you some ink in the process. It’s a little feature, but a nice one, and I appreciate it.

Personally, I’d love to see these Serene Fists become the industry standard for paper models. With fantastic art, multiple color choices, and the ability to disable text, I see them as the standard the competition should strive for.

Smallville Role Playing Game in time for 10th and final season

Margaret Weis Productions, who brought us the Firefly, Battlestar Galactica, and Supernatural RPGs, has at least 3 books in the works based on Smallville.

Smallville RPG

They aren’t out yet, so I can’t possibly write a review for them yet, but I can tell you what Battlestar Galactica, Supernatural, and Firefly RPGs were like. All of the books were beautiful. All of the books were a great sourcebook for fans. The mechanics were meh… I don’t like the Margeret Wise RPG game engine. I do still collect the books. I’ve already pre-ordered my copy of Smallville, but I suspect I’ll actually be playing M&M 3E/DC Adventures this fall.

DC Role Playing Game by Green Ronin D20 D6 best of Goodness

Green Ronin, the nice people who brought us the Mutants and Masterminds RPG, are going to bring a comprehensive DC Universe based RPG that doesn’t suck.

The Hero’s Handbook gives you all the rules and material you need to play the game. It is the DC ADVENTURES game, all in one book. So it includes, amongst other things, ready-to-use hero archetypes, along with an overview of the DC Universe, and information on some of its most prominent heroes and villains (fourteen of each).

Heroes & Villains is split into two volumes: Vol. I covers A-K, while Vol. II goes L-Z, each one packed with over 300 pages of characters! We spent some time collaborating on a master list of who had to go into these books and it is quite comprehensive.

DC Universe looks at the world of DC Comics, focusing on present-day Earth, but also venturing into the past and future, out among the stars, and across the dimensional gulf to parallel Earths and other worlds. It also serves as a third character book of sorts, as DC Universe will contain information on many supporting and background characters of the setting.

If you’ve never played the Mutants and Masterminds RPG before Think all the goodness of Mayfair’s DC RPG, the best parts of D20 game engine, and D6 Star Wars damage resolution. The Core of the DC RPG will serve as the new M&M 3rd Edition, although a seperate M&M 3E book will be printed for purists. It promises to be compatible with existing M&M 2E products, no major changes to attributes, etc…
