Tome of Horrors

Correction: Paizo Publishing is not publishing Tome of Horrors Complete. It is published by Frog God Games, Paizo is merely a distributor.

Paizo has recently announced (and sold out of pre-orders almost instantly) a resurrection of the Tome of Horrors called Tome of Horrors Complete, this time for the Pathfinder RPG. The book will be over 800 pages and contain monsters from the original edition of the game and new, templates, appendices on various things and a truckload of sample encounters as well as lairs.

D&D Miniatures Skirmish Playtest

The upcoming D&D miniatures skirmish battle game has entered the open playtest that was talked about at gencon this year. Anyone can gain access to the rules PDF by simply joining the playtesting group on the wizards community site. The rules seem to be a mix of magic and D&D as was somewhat touched upon in the Conquest of Nerath board game. Enrique and I discuss and make note that WotC seems to have taken a page from Paizo’s playbook on this one.

Group Implosion

Earlier in the week, there was a lot of talk about group implosion going on, particularly after I had announced mine falling apart. A rash and unbridled blog post I had written very much upset one of my core players putting our game into a limbo status as of this writing. Pending a more level headed rebuttal due soon, Enrique and I discuss group fallout – remedies and pitfalls to avoid. From a DM point of view: the mindset of running our game, should always supercede running my game.
