Lego Batman

Taking the kids to see Lego Batman this evening, hopefully going to enjoy it as much as the reviews seem to imply.  I always like Batman, and who doesn’t like Lego, so it should be fun.  Not much of a post otherwise, most of my day has been focused on …

Rise of the Runelords, Chapter 2.9

After many game sessions, we finally managed the finale of Chapter 2, with the group facing the snake behind the scenes.  In the previous session, the group had tracked the villain’s plot to the Shadow Clock, located in the Underbridge region of Magnimar.  After dealing with the golem guardian at …

Pathfinder, creating a magic item inventory

During our ongoing Pathfinder campaign, with the large 10 player group, we encountered a challenge.  The group, having advanced a bit in levels, and acquired a bit of treasure, entered the city of Magnimar.  Very soon, the thought became “what can we spend out money on?”  For an experienced group, …

Empire Fleet dispatched

In partnership with the Rebel Fleet, I prepared a similar fleet list for the Empire.  Same parameters – make it easy (no upgrades), and make it relatively easy to split between two players for a 2v2 game.  And limit the options to ship and squadron I currently have available.  The …

Rebel Fleet Spotted

In preparation for the upcoming training game of Star Wars: Armada, I spent a little time coming up with a very basic fleet list, suitable to a 2v2 game.  The first half of this is the Rebel Fleet, able to be split fairly evenly between two players.  Intentionally, this uses …
