I rather liked the pitch and artwork from NeverDead. We had a hero who could not die. A world living under threat of a demonic plague. We had action and angst in equal measure. I’m not sure about the teaser videos they’ve released though. The game looks too chaotic for my tastes. First up is […]

Nights of the Crusades publish first version
Nights of the Crusades is an RPG that’s been a few years in the making. It was back in November of last year we published an open call for the playtest. Now you can download the 106-page rulebook from the Aetheric Dream site The world of Nights of the Crusades is similar at first but […]
Paint battles: Hornby to challenge Games Workshop
Last week Hornby issued a market statement that contained the dread words; “below current market expectations”. This is never good. Hornby currently have a net debt of £8.5 million – but that’s down from £12.8 million a year ago. Hornby’s challenge seems pretty clear. Who’s buying Scalextric at a time of heightened job insecurity? Hornby […]
He-Man: Masters of the Universe remastered
This cover of the opening theme to He-Man: Masters of the Universe is hard to describe. Heck. It’s hard to imagine. It sounds almost… relaxing. That’s not quite right though. Here’s the challenge; watch the video and leave a comment to describe the style of music used by Advait.
Follow the adventure with “I built a TARDIS”
I highly recommend finding 17 minutes free to follow the adventures of “SillySparrowness”. Silly Sparrowness is a Doctor Who fan who decides to build her own TARDIS. It does not help that Doctor Who isn’t well known in Germany, that her DIY TARDIS project soon escapes the basement but Silly Sparrowness has to wrestle with […]
This Is Aperture
If you’ve seen The Nightmare Before Christmas then you’ll recall the This is Halloween song. If not; it’s time to watch it. This remake – This is Aperture – has zoomed over the half a million views mark and only popped online a few days ago. When I say “remake” I mean Portal 2-ification of […]
Clinton Felker’s samurai Star Wars
Clinton Felker’s awesome samurai Boba Fett has been doing the rounds on the blogs again. I can see why – it’s an incredible drawing. It’s well worth checking out his blog as there’s a whole collection. I think the Stormtrooper archer is my favourite. What about you?

Cultists of Havra Zhoul is a GM’s resource for the Pathfinder RPG. Published by Raging Swan Press, written by Pierre Van Rooden, the download presents the secretitive cult, its apparant dedication to law and how it has really fallen into darkness and corruption. “I am Havra Zhoul. Respect me. Obey me. Fear me. If you […]
Graphicly to challenge One Book Shelf? Empower publishers?
Geek Native was lucky enough to interview Graphicly’s CEO Micah Baldwin back in the day In fact, back then Graphicly was known as Graphic.ly and was part of the whole .ly domain doom. Since then Graphicly has faced some fierce competition in the digital comic market from the likes of comiXology, made some acquisitions, introduced […]
Is this spider monster too scary for any LARP?
This blogger asked the question Are Air Swimmers any good LARPs?. The answer seems to be no. They’re too fragile. Oh, I suppose a clever team of GMs could have a shark swim through the air as a very clever effect. This video is attempt 2. TD Artwork has just finished creating a very large […]
