Other Dust Now Available!

"Other Dust is a stand-alone, fully-compatible companion game to the free Stars Without Number sci-fi RPG. Within its pages, savage mutants, crazed psychic overlords, runaway war machines and the relentless decay of a shattered world all conspire to snuff the last few embers of humanity. Yet heroes remain among the scattered survivors, and their courage and will to defy the coming night might yet save their people from a waiting doom. Use the tools this book provides to rebuild societies, reforge their ancient bonds, and bring a new dawn to a thousand points of night!"
It's even on sale!

Hulks & Horrors

I came across this new Kickstarter today.
It's the Hulks & Horrors RPG

Here's the blurb about it:
"The Game Hulks and Horrors is a game of space exploration, treasure hunting, and horrific peril, set in the abandoned places of space.
Centuries before mankind and its new allies reached the stars, a great galactic plague wiped out all sentient life, leaving the galaxy littered with the ruins and wealth of entire civilizations. But the plague also left behind the plague horrors, terrifying creatures twisted by the mutagenic plague into atavistic monsters that crave only the flesh of other life.
Characters take on the role of one of seven classes: the battle-hardened Soldier, the brash and dextrous Pilot, the clever genius Scientist, the meditative master Psyker, and their alien allies, the tribal Bearmen, the brilliant ameoboid Omega Reticulans, and the nimble Hovering Squid.
The core rules are inspired by the classic editions of the world's most popular roleplaying game, and easily convertible to and from most major retroclones. Core resolution is based on a simple roll-under system, designed to keep the old-school flavor of the game mechanics while streamlining them for a newer generation.
Extensive DM tools are included for designing spaceships, dungeons, monsters, and whole sectors of space, as well as ideas for optional house rules, and a generous selection of monsters ready made for your campaigns."

A Hovering Squid! One of the races/classes available

 I gotta admit this has me intrigued.  I see it as fitting right in with X-Plorers, Stars Without Number, or the upcoming Starships and Spacemen RPG's. I may just have to contribute to this one!  : )

The Return of Pathfinder Sunday

Well after a long hiatus from regular gaming, believe it or not we are returning to Pathfinder.  I tried to get some sci fi gaming going but wasn't getting any takers, I tried to get some OSR gaming going but no takers, I ran a couple of sessions of C&C which was fun BUT something just wasn't meshing for us, then someone mentioned Pathfinder, and I agreed to run it again.  I've got players coming out of the woodwork! I'm actually having to turn down players at this point cause I've got so many at the table.  We had our first session today, I think it went pretty good all things considered. 
I'll keep ya'll posted on how it goes!
Good Gaming!

Heat Wave!

I hope everyone is well, like most of the rest of the country we are caught up in this terrible heat wave; 107 degrees on the temp readout is not a pleasant thing (then add in the southern humidity and yikes!!!).  Our A/C went out, got it fixed, and only had to pawn one of the children to pay for it (just kidding about that part), and I've been battling a rough respiratory infection. With no rain to speak of our air quality has been really bad of late.  A Code Purple? Air Alert!!!?? Anyways I'm still alive (antibiotics are awesome).  Sorry for the blah info, just thought I'd do an update. Anyways there is some awesome stuff out for gaming!  And all the heat and such got me thinking of Post Apocalytpic stuff. 
Other Dust should be out end of this month, so you can bring some more P.A. coolness to your Stars Without Number games! Woo Hoo!

The Mutant Epoch continues to turn out some great stuff.
The Pitford book is out and Tetsubo has done a nice review of it even if your not looking for a new rules set for your P.A. Games, I think you should pick up the Pitford book it is an awesome setting!!
Also they will soon be releasing a compilation of the Excavator Monthly mags into one big edition.

Oh and I don't want to forget Skirmisher Publishing's ongoing series Wisdom from the Wastelands. I believe they are up to issue #15 now.  It's an ongoing series of articles directly for use with the Mutant Future game.

Well that's all for now! Stay cool!!
