Friday Link Dump 10/24/14

I can't really claim to have found this one online recently, but an often overlooked source of Magic: The Gathering strategy is I'm a big fan of some of their writers, and I even wrote a few articles for them a few years ago.

I'm not exactly awesome when it comes to map creation, so a program like this one would go a long way toward making my games look better.

A compilation of RPG bloggers on G+? Sounds good to me. As I write this, Outsyder Gaming isn't on the list yet... but I just fired off an email, so hopefully it will be soon. I can't believe it has been there for two years, and I just saw it this week!

Noble Knight has started sending out emails whenever they get rare games in stock, and their last one clued me in to this little gem. If I had the money, I'd scoop this up in a heartbeat. It even comes with miniatures!

Underdark Campaign Log #19

When we last left our heroes, they had just defeated the last of the enemies standing between them and the surface world: a drider, its xorn minions, and a strange ice golem.

More of Jake's artwork here. As we
have grown in number and changed
characters, this image is only 60%
accurate at this point.
  • Blue, Human Fighter (Jake) 
  • Rurik, Dwarf Barbarian (Stetson) 
  • Mercy, Half-Orc Ranger (Jammie)
  • Temerith, Tiefling Wizard (Andrew)
  • Himo, Drow Fighter/Cleric (James)
  • Rasa, Nagaji Cleric (Rurik's Cohort)
  • Beltin, Aasimar Summoner (Temerith's Cohort)

After the battle died down, the group tried to free Blue from the block of ice. Their efforts were unsuccessful, but after some time passed, he burst forth on his own with an icy hue to his appearance that had not been there before.

With an even bluer Blue, the group stepped out into the sunlight again, the first time in over a month that they had been in Daggerdale. Their first stop was their tower to drop off all the trophies they'd collected along their way, and then off to Dagger Falls to sell some loot and buy some magic. On their way, they were surprised on the road by a particularly nasty bulette, but they dispatched it quickly.

Once their shopping trip ended, they went underground yet again - this time to hunt down the Shards of Day that the old dwarf had been urging them to do for quite some time.

Once underground, they made it all the way to the dark dwarves without incident, but it didn't take long for the duergar to begin their attacks. First a small group of guards accosted the heroes, but they were hardly a challenge.

To save some time, some in the group hopped on mine carts and hurtled through the near-abandoned mines. Some deft reflexes saved them from certain death when they encountered a stretch of collapsed tunnel, but the stopping point at the end of the line turned out to be too abrupt to avoid injury.

Not long after their cart rides, the group came upon the lower gates of the ancient dwarf city, and it too was guarded by dark dwarves... but we ran out of time, so the fight for the gate would have to wait until the next session.

Note: I am almost a whole month behind on posting. My immediate goal is to at least get campaign logs up to date so that I can start getting them out regularly on Mondays again. Sorry, guys!

I've never actually played the Firefly RPG,
but I love RPGs and I loved the series. Maybe
worth a shot?
Good stuff I noticed online this week...

Papercraft Terminators... I don't think I need to say anything more than that to make you click that link.

Rite Publishing always has sweet products. I'm a big fan of their free e-zine, Pathways, but this cover art really caught my eye recently.

If you ever find that you just can't get enough drow, you might find this web comic enticing.

Star City Games now has a ton of tournament coverage and play-testing videos on YouTube. Standard rotates so quickly that most of those videos are outdated, but you can still gain a lot of relevant insight for Legacy and Modern.
