What Darkness Hides -Act 2

The Black Obelisk of Klar Napoca This week’s session saw the party, barely recovered from their run-in with the Gnarls, ordered to investigate reports of suspicious activity in the ruins of Klar Napoca, an ancient fortress that used to guard the border road into the old Urgench Dominion. The entire northern province is off limits […]

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 […]

Song of Ice and Fire miniatures

Always on the look out for good miniatures, a recent thread over at Lead Adventure Forum brought CMON’s new Song of Ice and Fire figs to my attention. (ooooh Shiny!) Now I’m not GRRM/GoT fan but the paint jobs were very nice, so I wandered over to eBay where I promptly picked up a box […]

More Zone fiction. Part 3

3.  THE NEW TRINITY True to their word, the boys from Vladivostok had brought their own guns. The sky was brightening uncomfortably fast, but Kaspar and Gleb knelt on the grass and began dividing the rucksacks’ contents into two large backpacks as if they had all day. Yuri was stung by the notion they had, […]

Hardwired: Asset Retrieval

Cyberpunk Covert Ops Work obligations caused the Cape Cod Wargame Commission to set our current SYMBAROUM campaign aside for the time being. Unfortunate, but bills gotta be paid, deadlines met, contracts honored, and all that other adult stuff. That meant we broke out our Cooperative Cyberpunk Rules, HARDWIRED, for Tuesday night’s game session. With the […]

Dungeon Party and New Characters

DUNGEON PARTY I have this hobby tic, this obsession with skirmish squads, adventuring parties, salvage crews, cyberpunk gangs, shadow-ops teams… I get a kick out of hunting down miniatures, matching aesthetics, regardless of manufacturer, to come up with a cool troop for whatever scenario had fired my imagination. Few months ago – around the time […]

Symbaroum: Halls of Power

Quick post and pictures from last week’s Symbaroum session. (Hectic Holidays, sorry) Our heroes were escorting a NPC accused of heresy from Thistlehold to the capital when they were ambushed by a contingent of zealous Black Cloaks who charged them with consorting with apostates and spreading arcane corruption. (They happened to be transporting two powerful […]

ZONA ALFA: Test game

Short two regulars last night, we ran a quick ZONA ALFA test game with three crews vying to claim the data recorder from a downed surveillance drone. Each of the three Crew Bosses had nine K to spend when forming their squad and each intentionally selected different quality troops. In ZA, there are Green, Hardened, […]

Symbaroum: The Gloaming Roads

Led by their Barbarian guide Tior Huldrasson, the party walked the Gloaming Roads and found themselves at the crumbling ruins of an ancient fortress deep in Dark Davokar. Tior called it ‘the bastion of Kal’Nohr’ and claimed it was here that the party would find the artifacts they were searching for. The group advanced cautiously […]
