  • Campaign Cartographer July 2011 Annual

    Posted on July 16th, 2011 Highland_Piper No comments

    Profantasy The Cartographer’s Annual 2011 July issue is a paper diorama of mines.

    July ’11

    The July issue of the Annual 2010 a customizable mine diorama that you can print and assemble as you need. Created with Dioramas Pro, it also shows off many of that add-ons features without the need of actually owning it!

    Mine Cart

    The style contains 14 A4/Letter pages of Dioroma goodness. Ech of these can be customized on its own, and together they allow you to build almost any mine layout. The accompanying mapping guide gives hints and tips for customization and assembly.

    The map pack Mine Diorama includes

    1 new drawing style
    2 new template wizards (Imperial and metric units)
    2 new symbols
    8 bitmap fills
    32 new drawing tools
    1 new effect setting
    15 pages of example diorama parts
    15 pages of blank diorama parts
    1 4-page mapping guide


    You must own Campaign Cartographer 3 and a subscription to the 2011 annual to use them.  I’m hoping that this will mean an upcoming Dioramas 3.

    I’ve been pushing for an update for Dioramas and Character Artist (for paper figures) for months now.

  • World Works Games releases – The Garden

    Posted on October 26th, 2010 Highland_Piper No comments

    The Garden

    An elaborate underground garden lit by softly glowing light coming from glowing crystals in the ceiling twenty feet above. Gravel walkways wind between, cracked granite benches and surround a cobblestone fountain filled with crystal-clear water. To the south, a gently flowing creek runs across a pebbly streambed that passes through a rock garden and into an iron grill drain along a passageway to the south. To the north, a lone almond tree stands in alcove, while to the west, a double arch leads to a small circular room. Four sandstone sculptures chiseled into the forms of huge angry faces stand throughout the room”

    NECA/WizKids Announces the re-launch of the Mage Knight ™ Property

    (WizKids to release Mage Knight Board Game by Vlaada Chvátil)

    HILLSIDE, NJ – October 21, 2010 NECA/WizKids, the leader in collectible gaming, is proud to announce the re-launch of the Mage Knight property.  In 2000, Mage Knight defined miniatures gaming by combining a rich back-story, detailed pre-painted miniatures and revolutionary game play.  Mage Knight will honor that spirit of innovation within the property by expanding it across several platforms.

    The initial Mage Knight offering for release will be a board game designed by Vlaada Chvátil, designer of the acclaimed games: Dungeon Lords, Through the Ages and Galaxy Trucker.

My hope is to capture that essence in a new and engaging way for fantasy fans around the world” says Chvátil.

    WizKids President Lax Chandra says “Mage Knight launched our company and created a new industry CMG of gaming. Ten years later, we have come full circle. We have wanted to work with Vlaada for a long time and we are thrilled with his vision to make this a new experience while still carrying forward the world that so many people fell in love with.”

    In addition to the first boxed set, WizKids/NECA plans several brand extensions set in the Mage Knight universe, including a new take on deck building games and role-playing games.

  • RPGNow.com DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS FLOOD RELIEF

    Posted on October 20th, 2010 Highland_Piper No comments

    Record monsoon rains caused flooding that left almost 2,000 people dead and 20 million homeless. Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani estimates crop losses at $3.3 billion, total damage of about $7 billion. People displaced by the flooding that began at the end of July are still living in temporary shelters, such as schools, or in tents. Doctors Without Borders continues to provide medical care, clean water, and relief materials.

    Following the success of our previous fundraisers for DWB during the Haiti Earthquake Reponse we have decided to put together a new charity effort to raise funds for relief efforts in Pakistan. Several publishers have donated some very cool items to help us raise funds for Doctors Without Borders. The bundle will be available until 10:00 AM EST, Monday, October 25th.

    Donate $25.00 and receive over $700 in RPG titles

    Donate $10.00 and receive over $100 in comics titles from our sister site, DriveThruComics.com

    These are some amazing deals, and all of the proceeds from your purchase of the bundles will be donated to DWB for Pakistan aid. Thanks to all the publishers and creators who have donated their creative works to these bundles!
