Shadows over Sezgard

Had the rare privilege last weekend to travel to Western MA. to GM an afternoon of Nightwatch for a group of friends. My host informed me the last time they had all been together was at his wedding, some 25 years earlier. It was very cool and quite humbling to be a part of a […]

Destresser: Tabletop Combat

To say it’s been quite a year is an understatement. And to think it ain’t over yet. *holds breath* Still, everyone here is mercifully healthy, reasonably sane, and cautiously optimistic about the future. Christmas is upon us. I’ve got family, friends, work, and projects lined up in the coming months…. ‘Hope springs eternal’, I guess. […]

Goretusk’s Totems

A NIGHTWATCH game I’ve been using Nightwatch to teach my two eldest grandsons the basics of wargaming and RPGs. Set piece, straight forward battles rather than complex missions with waves of enemies spawning at random from portals. Here, their Monster Hunters (and occasional Hirelings) fight Minions of Darkness led by a ‘Personality’, which isn’t a […]

Escorting the Duke Redux

After groping my way through the slideshow program, I figured it was only proper to do a real write up of last Tuesday’s NIGHTWATCH mission. Other Pat, Occasional Tom, and Matt the Evil Meme Master showed up to game on the new mouse pad mat from Playmats.eu and some freshly-painted 3D printed terrain designed by […]

Nightwatch: Escorting Duke Lorrigan

Quick video I made from last Tuesday’s game session. A small Pact of three Hunters and two hired fighters escorts the honorable Duke Lorrigan through treacherous territory. One of the beta readers said Nightwatch reminded him of the PC game Vermintide, where your squad faces waves of Skaven (rat men) as they work to accomplish […]

Cinder King: Fire on Wael’s Bluff

General Montsigaard is tight-lipped with pain, seated in a folding chair in the command tent. A crisp new uniform accents his drawn face and three days of patchy gray stubble. Blood still seeps through his bandages. The General’s tent buzzes with a constant flow of dispatch runners who stumble in and out, vacant-eyed with exhaustion. […]

Shots from a Dungeon Crawl

Two older grandsons came over last night, and finding me in the basement game room, requested a chance at Fortune and Glory. After some debate, they decided to risk The Tomb of Sagrak the Skeleton King. Selecting a Warrior, a Wizard, a Rogue and a Cleric, they made it as far as the first Treasure […]
