Here’s the discussion thread that’s seeing the most action. Just a heads up to any of our readers who might have stored their credit card info with RPGNow or RPGShop – you might wanna keep a close eye on your account. If you never asked either site to hold onto
It’s the holidays again, and aiding and abetting our forthcoming Gift Guides is this episode of the report. Featured at the top, though, is lengthy incredulity at the fact that the WoW CCG is okay. Also, D&D Worldwide Game Day and how it could work better. Join us!
The WoW news leads off this show, followed by another trip into the bad neighborhood that is the RPG PDF market, and some final thoughts about Gen Con SoCal before we charge into some thorough and fascinating RPG play reports from the last Endgame MiniCon. Check it.
“We are a Sri Lankan miniature painting service that offers high quality, traditional miniature painting (no cheap speed painting tricks!) at the lowest rates on Earth […] Quality the average Western painter charges as much as $9-$12 to paint, we do for only $3.”
It’s almost time for the biggest little game convention, or the littlest big one, whatever. Steve joins us for a foray into all the nooks and crannies, plus plenty of board gaming and even some resin-casting misadventures. Word.
Character creator software for RPGs is not exactly an innovation. Nonetheless I still thought it was sort of cool that the people behind Army Builder and Card Vault are doing a generalized RPG tool called Hero Lab. Oddly, given the name, they haven’t announced a kit for the Hero System
I found out about it on story-games.com, for crying out loud – that’s how widespread the anticipation is for Memoir ’44 designer Richard Borg’s new fantasy take on his classic system (which is of course also available in two Command and Colors flavors). And it looks hot indeed. That post

Please don’t let my little found sounds distract you from the gravity and awesomeness of our talks with Ben Lehman of Polaris, Clinton R. Nixon and Emily Care Boss of The Shadow of Yesterday and Breaking the Ice respectively, and Jonathan Walton of Push. We did get audio from some
Via Penny Arcade, the story: Microsoft is to offer some heavy hitters of Eurogaming on the paid-downloads Xbox Live Arcade service by the end of the year. The only title announced thus far besides the big two is Alhambra, but speculation is of course running where it always runs: rampant.
Finally found the info on this: Perplex City: The Board Game will feature fairly simple puzzles by PPC standards, Trivial Pursuit-esque gameplay (here’s hoping that play on the board gets a little more fun than that), and a $40-esque price tag according to Funagain. Neat-looking product, but it isn’t clear
Information concerning the big Perplex City live event in San Francisco this past Saturday is frustratingly scarce on our friend the internet. The perplexcity tag on Flickr has a paltry few photos so far, and even the normally hopping Unfiction forums just have a few dribs and drabs. It looks
Pieces of Eight rocks. It’s simple and plays fast, but it still has a lot of depth and even some bluff. No, it isn’t collectible – fixed sets. Above all, it has figured out how to take one of those much-vaunted things that tabletop games can do and digital games
WizKids has announced a partnership with MMO-sters Worlds Apart (now apparently known as Sony Online Entertainment Denver) to release an online version of the Pirates of the (Insert Thing That’s Not The Carribbean) CMG in the fall. Coincidentally, the fall is also around when the bulk of retailers will be
