Figs for Sale

28mm Fantasy figs, that is. Consolidating the collection of Reaper figs used in our Song of Blades and Heroes games, I’m offering four sets of player character miniatures. These are metal, painted and satin sealed for protection, and are mounted on 40mm bases.  (I find the larger size gives enough room for the oversize, dynamic Reaper figs.) […]

New Terrain Piece

Saw this Star of Chaos bouncing around online late one night and thought I should do something with it. So…   A scrap of 1″ insulation foam, a couple hours with an X-acto, some house paint, and voila! an Evil Dias. Mantic ghouls scrounged from my bitz box make appropriate Tormented and Damned climbing from […]

3:10 to Yharma

A Song of Blades and Heroes Bat Rep *** “That’s a ‘4’!” Brynar insisted.  “No you thick Northman, that’s a ‘3’,” the grizzled cleric replied. “It says the caravan leaves at 3:10. The caravan we were paid to escort.”  The barbarian shrugged his massive shoulders. “It’s not my fault the attendant scribbles. You’re the educated […]

Nal-Rog of the Nine Hills

We had a new guy with us last Tuesday night, so we did a quick one-of scenario for ASOBH. John is an old hand at RPGs but fairly new to TTGs. One of the many things I appreciate about the ASOBH system is how easy it is to teach newcomers. Matt, Derek, and John each […]

Terror in Tendale Wood

Derek was called into work, furiously cooking gluten-free alternatives for customers’ Thanksgiving celebrations, but Matt and I got together over a quick ‘one-of’ ASOBH game last night. *** Hrodor the Druid and his nephew Brynar have been tracking the evil necromancer Heinrich Klutch for months. Following him to the quiet hamlet of Tendale, the Northmen […]

The White Monk’s Tower

“on we went, with every step a voice whispering in our ears that this was all folly…”   Our Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes campaign continued last week with our intrepid adventurers hiking into the foothills to locate the White Monk’s Tower. Rumors of treasure helped pull them on but a scroll hidden beneath […]

Toil, Toll, and Trouble

Resuming our ASOBH campaign, our intrepid adventurers faced random encounter with an Black Ork warband. A bit more than the old ‘toll booth shakedown’, these orks were perfectly content to take heads for their belts as silver for their coin bags. As far as encounters go, this was a  straight up brawl. The clerics kept […]
