Recently, the folks over at Paizo had a Twitch stream where they collectively with the audience built themselves a monster for Pathfinder. The Ailurans are what they came up with. This new monster has been created mostly by you, the players, and is now ready to take its place in your campaigns. Paizo's posted up its full stats and information on their website.

The land to the east is the home of the beast folk. They started from nothing to create just a little plot of land that they could call their own to homestead. Now, your characters can go and see what they're up to in Untamed Lands, the new expansion book for Ponyfinder. It's got not just info about the people and the region, but new gear, new spells, new class options, and more. You can pick up your copy now.

Whoooooooooooooooooah! We're halfway there!
Whooo-OH! It'll be the weekend relatively soon!

Ok, so I'm not exactly Bon-Jovi. Who is?
Anyway, it's still true that we're halfway to the weekend. I'm looking forward to an Eberron game that I still need to make a character for. Might try and do that this afternoon. We'll see. But while I'm crunching the numbers on a new PC, you should crunch on a bite-sized gaming story.

On the platter today we have: Norse Miniatures Adventurers and Adversaries 2 Kickstarter Launching Soon

You can try and run a very serious, somewhat strict RPG. But we all know that eventually things will get a bit silly. And what's wrong with that if everyone's having fun? Well, Them's Monsters looks to bring you some new creatures that you can toss at your party. Some are more serious than others, because a little levity never hurt. The project is up on Kickstarter now.

Monte Cook is just a name you know when you get into the gaming industry. His works are legendary and vast.

Case in point, Ptolus, Monte Cook's RPG setting is getting updated for 5th Edition and Cypher System. The project is up on Kickstarter now.

Games Workshop has a whole lot of things going on in their webshop this week. There's a new Necromunda book and unit. They've got some new Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game kits.

Haunted houses. They're filled with mystery and possible terror. Strange sounds. Flickering lights. Doorways that seem to come and go. All combine to give a very unsettling feeling to the location.

The adventure is up on Kickstarter now.

Many people hold celebrations in winter. It's the end of the year and the start of a new one. It's time to think back on the year that was, all the memories with friends, family, and loved ones. And that's just what you get to do in Winter Harvest, a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter. Players take on the role of woodland animals looking to maintain their home through the year, then get together for a giant feast at the end.

Have yourselves a look.

Sure, your characters can just head down to a local shop and -hope- that they have the specific potion, magic item, or bit of gear that your party needs. Maybe your DM is nice like that. But what if you're an enterprising type and want to just build it for yourself? That's where The Ultimate Guide to Alchemy, Crafting & Enchanting comes in. It's a new D&D supplement that's up on Kickstarter now.

There's tons of different reasons that someone might miss out on a Kickstarter campaign.

Well, to help out some, CMON has another preview of what changes will be coming, along with a look forward at the game after those updates hit the street.

I never want to go out into the ocean. That's just not for me. Too many things living out there that we know nothing about. I'm going to firmly keep my feet on solid ground. But should I ever want to go out to sea, I can still do so vicariously through Sunken, a new RPG expansion for the Trophy RPG. Yo ho ho and a bottle of keep me on the solid ground. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

I love to cook. I love the chemistry of it and mixing different flavors to (hopefully) form something greater than its different parts.

Having a pre-made adventure ready to go can make the life of a GM infinitely easier. You can just pick up and go with it, only having to tweak it to fit your game as opposed to creating something from scratch.
