    Mayhem Destroyed

    MAYHEM: Armoury #4 / Mayhem DESTROYED!

    Concluding the Terranlinx updates for Mayhem Armoury comes set #4: Mayhem Destroyed! Wargamers rejoice, your dreams of an affordable shattered city-scape to fight over have come true! Mayhem Destroyed gives you everything you need to create the smouldering remains of urban destruction on your tabletop! Stack ruined floors and crumbling walls to create towers of sniper-filled terror! Send your models up pitted stairs, across rickety metal walkways and up fully functinal, totally modular ladders! Take cover behind wrecked cars, burning barrels and piles of debris! Or cat-walk your way along iron girders in a desperate bid to get out of harm’s way! Mayhem Destroyed also features multi-grid format tiles, giving a seemingly grildess appearance at first glance but using hidden elements within the design to create unobtrusive 1″ and 1.5″ grids! And best of all, while Mayhem Destroyed is a fully-contained stand alone set, it’s also completely compatible with all three previous Mayhem Armoury sets, adding some serious destroy-as-you-play MAYHEM to your Mayhem!

    Fortified Manor. Free PDF Download

    Fortified Manor
    The newest article from the Harn Writer’s Guild is a 16 page Free PDF available from Lythia.com.

    Link: http://www.lythia.com/2010/08/fortified-manor/

    This article describes a large, fortified manor house. It is unnamed and intended to be usable in any fantasy campaign. It is an example of the sort of manor house that might be found on a large, wealthy estate. The lord of such a manor is only one step below a baron and can afford to build a fine stone manor house, support a large household, and live in an impressive style. It may be a newly constructed manor in a dangerous frontier region where such strong defences are necessary or it might be an old, long-settled manor whose defences are now merely a reminder of days gone by.

    The writer made a deliberate choice not to name this manor, so that GMs could feel free to insert it anywhere they need a large stone manor house. He hopes it proves to be of use to GMs and PCs alike.

    The article includes floor plans of the manor house, description of the household, adventure hooks and Game Master (B&W) and Player (color) local area maps showing the manor and adjacent village.

    This is a Harn Writer’s Guild Production: Written by Kerry Mould, Maps by Kerry Mould & Thomas Shook, Art by Richard Luschek, Editing by Brent Bailey.

    Dragonblood Closed for Business

    Enough, time to find a buyer. Anyone interested in the sculpts or castings let me know.

    Existing inventory will still be for sale until whatever transition occurs. All figures will be sold from the ebay store here.

    I wonder what they want for their molds…

    Ultimate D&D-playing dungeon. And I do mean “ultimate.” – Boing Boing.

    The Burntwire Brothers spent two years building a custom D&D room in their house. It includes a rack of swords, medieval chandeliers on dimmers controlled by the dungeon-master, as well as hidden strobes and fog machines. It also has every goddamned game ever published, by appearances. And skulls. Iron-bound doors. You get the picture. Give these chaps the Happy Mutant of the Year award.

  • Fictional Reality is closing down

    Posted on January 1st, 2010 Rob No comments

    I just heard that Fictional Reality magazine has published it’s last issue. The creator,  Mark Theurer has announced that Fictional Reality magazine will be ending.

    I read this on Tabletop Gaming News but wasn’t able to find the original news release so I’ll steal TGN’s copy.

    Fictional Reality Issue 38

    Fictional Reality Issue 38

    With a new year beginning there’s also an end coming to something that I’ve worked on for almost ten year now. I will be shutting down Fictional Reality and the recent December 2009 issue will be the last.

    I’d like to thank everyone who’s had anything at all to do with FR over the past several years. I feel like if I single out any one person or group to thank first that I’d be doing a disservice to the others, so, in no particular order I’d like to thank…

    …the readers, the advertisers, those that sent in stuff to be reviewed, those that wrote articles, gaming websites that have helped post news of FR and the co-editors that I’ve had over the years. I hope that I didn’t forget anyone. If so, I’m sorry. Many thanks to all of you.

    I’ll be leaving the FR site up for a while but it will be coming down at some point. If there are issues you want to grab better get them while the getting is good.

    Now, I’m not vanishing from the gaming scene. Not by a long shot. I’ll be posting news on a new project that I’m working on soon, but this is really to let everyone know that FR has come to an end and to offer my thanks to everyone that had anything at all to do with it. It’s been an enjoyable ten (almost) years and I’ve had the opportunity to meet some wonderful people in the gaming/hobby industry.


    Mark Theurer

    I have emailed Mark to see if I’d be allowed to host his archives. Hopefully we can keep this valuable resource online. Personally, I know how hard it is to run a site for years. Dungeon Crawlers has been online since 2003 and I’ve seen a lot of sites come and go. I try to save as much as I can (or am allowed to).

  • Midnight Chronicles DVD (D&D)

    Posted on October 23rd, 2009 Rob No comments

    It Has Been a Hundred Years Since the Shadow Fell

    In the world of Midnight, evil rules, and the last brave heroes struggle against overwhelming odds. A century ago, the free peoples of Eredane fought the final battles in a des¬perate war of survival against the Shadow, the dark god Izrador…and lost. The lands of men were crushed by Izrador’s armies, or succumbed to his insidious corruption. The shat¬tered remnants of the once-great elves and dwarves retreated to the hearts of their homelands to vainly resist their inevita¬ble defeats. Many of the gentler races were simply enslaved or reduced to hopeless refugees….

    Midnight Chronicles , the first full-length feature film from Fantasy Flight Games, tells the epic narrative of two legendary characters, one for the cause of good, the other for the cause of evil. Available now on DVD, this story chronicles their rise and struggle as their destinies become intertwined with that of the world and the dark god that occupies it.

    Personally,  I couldn’t get the trailers to play. Probably just a temporary glitch, I’ll try it again later.
