Ex-Illis Beta Available at Gen Con 2009–Reserve Your Beta Kit Today!

Ex-illis, the software moderated tabeltop miniature game that impressed me at GTS 2009 just announced they will be offering a pre-release beta test version at Gen Con 2009.  I am re-printing their press release below, but the main thing you should take away from it is that the beta will “cost a fraction” of the […]

29 Free 3.5 OGL Modules from Paradigm Concepts

Paradigm Concepts released 29 of  their “Living Arcanis” modules from years 3 and 4 of the campaign helpfully packaged in zip files.  I was a big fan of Living Arcanis and even wrote some modules for one of the Arcanis regions (Midake, if you are interested).

Review: Nightbane Survival Guide from Palladium Books

I am a huge “Nightbane” fan. I originally bought it thinking it was a “Rifts” supplement, but was happily surprised by its unique combination of horror, humor and no small amount of biting social satire.  It is one of my favorite games, but it has lain fallow for years. There were simply no books published […]

Gen Con 2009 is less than one month away and I thought it a good time to post my yearly list of links to the vendors and exhibitors.
