DIY fantasy wargaming tips courtesy of Gary Gygax. Do not underestimate the balrog. He’s quicker than he looks!
Woohoo! Finally got my hands on a Chthonic Codex boxset, Wonder & Wickedness and Marvels & Malisons from the Lost Pages stand at Conpulsion earlier today. Really looking forward to diving in to these little beauties!
While I was in Edinburgh I stopped by the Black Lion gameshop (well it’d be rude not to) and picked up my first d30 especially to use with Yoon-Suin. There’s 1 table in the book that uses a d30, so it’s bound to get used once or twice. That’s more times than most of the other dice in my collection…
Went along today’s Symposium with a detachment from the East Neuk Irregulars. What a great event! Got to pick up tips on painting, conversions and sculpting directly from the dab hands. The hobby needs more of this kind of thing! If you’re interested in upping your game hobby-craft-wise, then you owe it to yourself to pop along tomorrow for day#2. Well done to David Imrie and all the team for putting this together. Many thanks!
There’s an updated version of Gaslands coming later this year!
The Royal Mint have released a 50p featuring a black hole design to commemorate the life and work of the late Professor Stephen Hawking. I’ve always loved 50ps, but this one is truly cosmic!
Gaslands: Time Extended 4 is out now!
“On Fairy-Stories” is an essay by J. R. R. Tolkien which discusses the fairy-story as a literary form. It was initially written (and entitled simply “Fairy Stories”) for presentation by Tolkien as the Andrew Lang lecture at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, on 8 March 1939.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/On_Fairy-Stories
