- Blade & Crown - a new RPG from Rachel Kronick. Rachel is an old friend from the Twin Cities, and I know she does good work. I had known Rachel through mutual interest in game settings like 2300AD and Tekumel, but Blade & Crown was something new to me. I'm boosting the signal.
- Dave's Mapper - a resource for artistically-challenged referees like me. I'm just starting to explore it, but I can tell I will get more use out of it over time, not just for D&D but also potentially for Traveller.
- DrawHexGrid 3.51 - in the past, I've used Incompetech's web-based hex paper generator, but DrawHexGrid looks like a way to get not only hexes but also numbered hexes. If DrawHexGrid doesn't work for you, check out mkhexgrid as an alternative.
- Empire - "the board game from Reed College" - Empire was (and is?) a long-standing campaign game that originated at Reed College in Portland, Oregon. It is another example of the sort of strategic campaign-oriented game which may have influenced later developments in wargaming and roleplaying.
- The Apocalyptic Post - issues 1-5. For anyone irradiated with interest in Gamma World, this looks like an interesting resource. I've downloaded a set and have begun reading. Definitely something for use with Mutant Future.
- Classic Traveller supplements from Gamelords, available from Different Worlds Publications. You can get them on CD-ROM from Far Future Enterprises - and you should! But also pick up the original booklets for some awesome CT goodness.
- Judges Guild Ready Ref Sheets, also available from Different Worlds Publications. While most of the rest of the Judges Guild stuff for D&D is sold out, apparently Tadashi Ehara still has this classic resource for sale - and for cheap! There are other items for T&T and RQ, too.
- Mazes & Minotaurs - the Old School game inspired by Jason and the Argonauts and Homer's The Odyssey. I'm not sure where I am going to put all the games I want to buy, but this one definitely has my attention.
I know this is what happens when I get to the end of the semester, but I am looking forward to the holiday season break. I've got a lot of reading and game writing to do.
