Last year in the flurry of Kickstarters I involved myself in was the one for this game; Tenra Bansho Zero (TBZ) and its now available for general purchase in PDF format (the print books are on a boat from China currently) so I thought now would be a good time to share my thoughts and …

A Brief Look at Pathfinder Minis

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. I’m lucky to have been able to amass a fairly large collection of minis over the last 4 years or so, hunting down rare mini’s and importing some from america. …

Revisiting Zanzer Tems Dungeon

ZTA3Board

Back near the start of October 2012, I posted on DailyEncounter that I was starting to rebuild Zanzer Tems dungeon from the Basic D&D starter set. I had an initial burst of activity on the project, doing 4 or 5 casts of each mould I own for about a week. And then I dropped my tub of …

Defenders of Midgard Released!

The start of the year kicked off with a bit of a bang here at DailyEncounter towers. I finally got my copy of the Midgard Bestiary for 4E and was pleasantly surprised to see Rob Heinsoo had included my single contribution in his introduction to the book!

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 …

Back to Bases

Wow the Reaper Bones Kickstarter raised an amazing $3,429,236 and some 17744 people backed the project most of them backing at the $100 level and receiving over 200 miniatures for their enjoyment (myself among them) in March next year. The thing is the Bones miniatures come with what is called a broccoli base, a lightly …

A late start to the “Classics Return” Blog Carnival

Gencon has been and gone, and i’m only just putting up the front page for the Classics Return blog carnival… I’m afraid to say that I failed the D&D community with this one, with a lack of support for the blog carnival, and a lack of effort on my behalf to get the items uploaded …
