Grind.... It's a board game now


So Privateer just announced they are adapting the overlooked Grind sub-game into a full blown board game. I bet that it will be pretty cool. Ever since they released the Grind game, it seemed like a cool idea, I just never gave it a shot. A board game is probably a better format for it anyways.

First Week Roundup

Much fun was had by all as our brave adventurers set to their task. The adventure started with our Heroes gallantly saving the city gate from an onslaught of Zombies, for which they were richly rewarded with Zombie Wine! A highly corrosive and flammable substance prefect for Molotov cocktails. Our adventurers then set off to track down the source of these Zombies and their Corpse Cart, only to be confronted by a sorcerer of Nurgle! After besting the sorcerer and his assorted lackeys our heroes found the source of the plague in town, gain poisoned with the essence of Nurgle! After burning it and reporting to the proper athuorities, our adventurers bravely set out on their mission to the dwarf hold of Wintersbreathe, only to be confronted by a troll and some night golbins! The troll was a mere speedbump for the team, and we left them fully healed and in a small farming town 1 days walk from the City.

The Tale of Five Friends

Here you go guys, this is how it all starts...

Five friends born in the same city, but from different walks of life joined in a common goal, to secure the boarders of their troubled homeland, enforce the law of the land they so love, and to take down the corruption that lies within.

The first step to this enormous task that these friends and adventures have put upon themselves is to join the special operations section, which until lately was only pulling people from within it's own ranks. However, with the current plague running rampant within the city of Aurnir the division know as the Black Ravens has been decimated in number. Add to the fact that one of these friends is already a among the Seekers, getting in was the easy part.

In order to test their metal, the grand inquisitor has ordered these five friends on a low level mission, one that involves traveling north to speak with some of your dwarven counterparts in the hold of Wintersbreath about the growing concerns of the guild of death and their brutal martial wing the Nighthawks.

Tread carefully, starting next week the fun starts.

Forward the Revolution!


Word of the the day: GameCrime.

Referring to any factor which makes a game unsatisfactory to play. Including but not limited to: Powergaming, non WYSIWYG models, unpainted models, ugly terrain, no terrain, sore losers, rules lawyers, stupid, illogical or unnecessary rules, rule exploiters, bad fluff, clubs who encourage cheesiness.

On a related note, it was discovered that Citizen AA had not watched Firefly. This was certainly grounds for execution, however our Beloved Leader commuted his sentence to one week in the GM education camp. The results of his toil will be exhibited tomorrow. Citizen RG is under investigation because his Firefly status is in question.

Your task for the week is to add to list of GameCrimes.

RPGeeking...

Hey guys, after Kublacon and the rush up to Quake City Rumble, I've been thinking about some role playing. I have two things in mind and would run something for the OP 4 if there's some interest.

#1. Iron Kingdoms/Warmachine Roleplaying








I have my hands on the Witchfire Campaign and that could be some fun.





#2. Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay

Oh ya, adventuring in the old world! Dark and gritty, think Mordheim with more detail and working together against the lurking evil and corruption! Plus you can start out in exciting careers such as ratcatcher, slave, baker, camp follower, etc....

Anyway, I'd be thinking of maybe 1 or 2 nights a month if you guys are interested.
