Midweek already. Never a complaint when we are already halfway through the week. Especially since I've got gaming lined up for Saturday. But before we get there, we need to actually get there, if you know what I mean. And if we're going to get there, we need to have snacks to eat. And that's just what we're here for now.

On the platter today we have: Divination Gaming Dice by DougOutCrafts Up On Kickstarter, Nuns with Laserguns Up On Kickstarter, Brigade Models Releases New 15mm Dragoon Half-tracks for Hammer's Slammers, Up to 25% OFF sci-fi Female Resistance Fighters range From Statuesque Miniatures, RN Estudio Running Mythexplorers II Kickstarter, and New Stalingrad Germans Available From Great Escape Games.

Darth Vader. The whole Star Wars saga revolves around him, from his origins, through his rise and fall, to the fallout left by him and his progeny. He's a major player, and so, as you would expect, he's a major part of Star Wars games, including Star Wars: Destiny. In this preview, we get a look at various Darth Vader cards and accessories.

One things that players want is more. More classes, more races, more archetypes, more gear, more spells, more gadgets, more weapons, more enemies to fight, more, more, more. Well, that's what you get in the Tome of Many Things, up on Kickstarter now from Terran Empire. It's got classes, monsters, spells, feats, alternate rules... A little bit of everything.

As one would expect, Hell isn't always the easiest place to live. Though much of it can end up being somewhat mundane, it is still the various levels of the abyss, after all. And, as one would expect, there's all sorts of power struggles happening. Hell is currently on the verge of another upheaval, and it's into the middle of this that you find your characters in A Cold Day in Hell, an adventure for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now.

Four Ways to Die in the Future isn't just a single RPG, but a collection of four mini-games. Each one involves sacrifice of some form. Not everyone will be saved, but some may be.

Check out House Arryn coming in the Mother of Dragons expansion for the A Game of Thrones board game.

Tuesday...

It's... there. I mean, it's hard to hate it, as it's not really the start of the week. All of that loathing goes to Monday. But there's not much else going on with it. It's not the middle of the week, really. It's just... Tuesday. I know Arthur could never really get a handle on Thursdays, but I think Tuesdays are the ones I have the toughest time with. Better listen to some gaming podcasts.

Did anyone else's weekend seem to only take something like 5 hours to go by? Anyone? My Saturday, especially, was over in what felt like less than an hour. Seriously. It was, "start hanging out with friend. Blink. Friend leaves and it's time for bed." Like, the hell? I feel cheated out of 2 days off. Oh well... there'll be another weekend eventually. Just a long way to go until we get there. And if there'll be gaming on that weekend, we'll need some terrain.

Today in the Terrain Corner we have: Urban Decay Mat Available From Loke Battlemats and Medieval Kit 1 Available from Pwork Wargame.
