Flames Rising - Weird War II Review

Savage Worlds and Pinnacle's Weird War II setting go together like zombies and headshots. I like this book's take on the game better, since it seems less like Deadlands: WWII edition.

The capitalist holiday of Black Friday is nearly upon us. Luckily, some local businesses have seized the day and will be glad to take your money with some sweet deals of their own.

AV Club - One Man Star Wars

Taking a cue from the Reduced Shakespeare Company, Charles Ross brings his one man rendition of Star Wars to Milwaukee this weekend. I am also once again humbled by my editor's ability to create perfect headlines.

Flames Rising - Night's Black Agents

A review of the awesome RPG that combines spies and vampires.

AV Club - Local Election Specials.

Tomorrow is Election Day in WI. Voting is important no matter what side of the isle. But more important are the freebies that "I voted" sticker unlocks. I can't decide if I'm prouder of my adult film adaptation of Ayn Rand's most popular work or the line "Pizza is as American as apple pie." America.

Hillfolk - Encore

In addition to Mafia Century, I have another setting pitch as part of the newly-christened Pitch of the Month club. Encore is a musical drama best described as Glee: The Reality. It centers around a jukebox musical touring around the country. The leads are the dreamers, has-beens and never-will-bes. It's drawn from my experiences as a theater kid in high school and college as well as the experiences of my friends who continued on and tried to make it as performers. I am most excited about the ideas I have for using actual music in the game. but they've got to get $90,000 to get there. Ten bucks gets you two PDFs full of nearly 60 additional settings plus advice from one of the best living game designers out there.

It's a mad rush to the end.
