Speaking of the Street Cleanup ...

After I wrote yesterday's blog post/open letter I took a look around at the Street Cleanup. I found one of the best finds I've ever had:

Post-Apoc/Near-Future Gaming Terrain (Pic-Heavy)

I decided to try making a batch of terrain for Combat Zone, but it's also useful for generic 28mm Post-Apoc/Near Future gaming. I based the buildings on Craig Hardt's Cardboard Ruins tutorial on TerraGenesis with a few tweaks, and I also made some rubble piles and a corrugated iron [cardboard] lean-to.

eM-4 Plastic Orcs and Dwarfs

eM-4 is a company in the UK that owns some of the old Grenadier molds; among them are a few plastic orcs and dwarfs for 22p each (about $0.30). Since I was purchasing the Combat Zone boxed set* I added in some orcs and dwarfs as well.

Wil Wheaton's Tabletop

Just a shout out to Wil Wheaton's Tabletop Web Series, which is pretty cool. If you are interested in geeky board/card/role-playing games you should check it out. It's helpful to see the game actually being played instead of just hearing descriptions of it. I've only watched a few episodes so far, and I've already noticed a couple of games I'd like to play.

Public Domain Paper RPG Miniatures

I've been using Paper A-Frame type miniatures for my OSRIC games so far. I've made up a few sheets with Public Domain images from Clker.com, Reusable Art, A Clipart History, and the Open Clip Art Library, which I thought other people might be interested in. You can download them from here: Free Public Domain RPG Miniatures. They're scaled so that 30mm equals approximately 180cm (5'11").

Estgair RPG Map

Progress Quest

You might have noticed that I haven't posted for a while. I blame Progress Quest, a truly exceptional MMORPG. It's got an engrossing plot, phenomenal graphics, truly zen sound, and is generally all round great. I've spent over 10 hours playing it Today alone.
