Midgard Bonus Bestiary

The last product that I contributed to for the 4e Midgard Kickstarter is available to buy on RPGNow for only $2.99 / £1.95. It already has a 5 star review and even though I may be biased I think 12 interesting fun monsters for such a small amount of cash is definitely value for money. …

Last week saw the release of the 5th set of Pathfinder pre-painted minis, made by WizKids (of mageknight and heroclix fame), and sold by Paizo.

Dressing up Zanzer Tem’s Dungeon

This is part two of my posts documenting my progress of building a 3d version of the classic Zanzer Tem’s dungeon. In this post, I want to talk about the moulds i’m using and how I’m aiming on giving the dungeon its own characteristics once i’m finished casting. Base – I’m using a fairly typical …

Rebuilding Zanzer Tem’s Dungeon…

ZTNewSketch

I got into D&D over 21 years ago purely by accident, when I sat in my brothers Isle of Dread game, pestering him to let me lay on the Sega Genesis. Months later, I was given the “New, Easy to Master” D&D  box set. This box, for Basic D&D, is TSR 1070, and was a …
