https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1780208966/freeport-the-city-of-adventure-for-the-pathfinder/ [Support this Project] Freeport is part of Green Ronin’s history. I remember when the first books started to appear back during the dizzy days of the d20 bubble. In this video Chris Pramas admits Freeport has been off the boil, in fact the series has been slumbing like a Great Old One. Given the […]

Glass Thorns: Elsewhens is the sequel to Glass Thorns: Touchstone and is equally a frustrating book to review. Why? It’s a carefully slow book but it’s clearly building up a grand and complex plot. It’s all gut feeling but I sense Melanie Rawn, an experienced writer, doesn’t want to try and spin a trilogy into […]
What’s this? A book featuring Sherlock Holmes, arguably the world’s greatest detective (unless you count Danger Mouse1) and the supernatural? How could this work, and should it even be attempted? Luckily for me, instead of discounting the novel as some form of sacrilege, recently I had my views broadened from reading an interesting article from […]

The official name of this video is “Female Super Hero Fan Film” and the character is called “Diana” or “some sort of super woman” in the script. However, the outro credits clearly show the Wonder Woman symbol and mention Wonder Woman. I wonder whether they were asked to tone it down. The team might have […]
Do you engage in a bit of banter with your gamer pals? For C$20 you can have a personalised insult built into the next version of the popular drink based RPG Drinking Quest. [Back this Campaign] This is an Indiegogo fund raiser (probably because the creator isn’t in either the US or the UK) and […]
One of the most recent Gimmick Tees designs caught my attention. We’re in their usual mashup territory here, Space Invaders and The Watchmen. Who knows? Perhaps this little fellow will feature in the controversial Watchmen prequel?
I like the science in science fiction. That’s why I like sci-fi, especially gritty sci-fi but rarely those stories set so far in the future that technology seems like magic. Mindjammer is a far future sci-fi. Mankind has explored all across the universe and populated many planets. The expansion fragmented and mankind was left to […]
And all I got was this stupid t-shirt, er, sorry. All I got was this stupid chainmail shirt!
