Recent Brushwork – pt. 2

Our weekly group is getting ready to try the sci-fi, transhuman RPG Eclipse Phase 2.0 , so I slapped color on a bunch of Privateer Press’ Warcaster Neo-Mechanika miniatures to use as character and major NPC figs. I don’t play W N-M, or any PP games for that matter, and there doesn’t seem to be […]

Goblins and Vikings

Cape Cod Wargaming continues as our Dungeons & Dragons 5e campaign hits its stride. Resisting the usual Murder Hobo tendencies, our shipwrecked adventurers have decided to aid the locals instead of rob them. Our first stop off the beach was a small town that we quickly learned was suffering from a mysterious blight that plagued […]

Side Note: Legend of Vox Machina

Disappointed with ‘Legend of Vox Machina’. Sophomoric. Cliched. Frat humor. Predictable. Amazon served up all the stereotypes and played to the cheap seats. *sigh* We have richer stories that that, deeper characters, staggering creativity. And by ‘we’, I mean gamers, writers, GMs, the RPG community in general. There is a dragon’s hoard of amazing work […]

Winding down another Year

In the final stretch of 2021, our group is coasting toward the new year trying out new games, running one-shots for old ones, play-testing new rules, and basically collecting ourselves before we launch into 2022. Most recently, we ran several sessions of “The Well”, an indie RPG that’s essentially an inverted dungeon crawl. I used […]

Sprains, Floods, and Vikings

Apologies for the thin content lately. Not only have I been hammering away at my latest fiction project but was I debilitated for a month with an injured hand, and the basement flooded. Twice. I think I spent more time mopping in the game room than painting. So, yeah… life. SYMBAROUM That said, the weekly […]

of Dreams and Shadows

Shifting gears for our weekly game nights, we’ll be playing the cooperative board game ‘of Dreams and Shadows’ by Greenbrier Games for the next few weeks. (take a look HERE or HERE for more info.) We played our first game last Tuesday evening and I wanted to bring it to people’s attention because it was […]

Ancient Gold and Goblins

Another game night at Cape Cod Wargaming, another Nightwatch mission. This time our Hunters explored ancient ruins deep in the Setet Forest pursuing rumors of a goblin tribe’s treasure horde. (*Pro Tip: If you want to draw out an elusive quarry, threaten something they value.) Hunting party comprised of one member from each Guild backed […]

Loggerheads Underground

Our Symbaroum adventure continues as our heroes investigate the logging site where a party of laborers went missing. A short, sharp clash with a Gwann revealed not only the loggers’ cause of death but an underground passage that led to a catacomb. Never ones to pass up a good delve, they decided to descend and […]

Defending the Sisters

A NIGHTWATCH Battle Report Isaac Von Dorn readied the grenadoes in his satchel. “The Verminkin are already here,” he said, peering through the trees. “Just two but it looks to be a lieutenant and one of the brute aberrations. They’re preparing for their foul ceremony.” Lael Sein cinched the shield straps and drew his sword. […]

Loggerheads

Mercifully, our weekly game sessions continue here at Cape Cod Wargame Commission. (Nothing like slaying monsters and defeating villains with friends to help you retain your sanity) Although we have reduced numbers, we do have a new member: Neighbor Mike. Four of us have embarked on another excursion into the great forest of Davokar. This […]
