My Favorite Orcs Part 1

I'm a big fan of the classic D&D Pig Face Orcs, and especially Other World Miniatures' orcs. But overall I prefer Tolkien inspired orcs. And nobody makes them better than Thunderbolt Mountain Miniatures.

Just check them out!

One of these days, I'll have to put in an order for these!

"Why I Dont Care" an editorial by Chad Thorson

The views of this post are not necessarily the view of this blog, in other words the views are entirely my own.

The latest battles in the whole OSR movement about "When is too much too much" have left me complacent. Some say the more the merrier and some say we are diluting what's already out there by filling the net and game stores with house rules variants and what not.

I just have to say that, I don't care. If somebody wants to create their version of OD&D, let them run it up a flag pole and see if people salute. If you like the rules you already play, keep playing. It's a simple solution.

I have preferences that I like S&W, Labyrinth Lord, Rules Cyclopedia, B/X, Holmes, Red Box, yadda yadda... It doesn't matter what you prefer because in the end we are all still playing the same game.

Right now, I'm more interested in Tunnels & Trolls but I'm sure I'll be playing something else later on. That's the beauty of variety!

Be excellent to each other, and play on dudes!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

To all of you with Irish blood. Unfortunately I got punched in the nose in a barroom fight and lost what little Irish blood I had!

Via Con Dios, Corey Haim

Corey Haim was only a couple of years older than me, so I kind of grew up watching him grow up. Unfortunately Hollywood has a way of just discarding child actors, especially when they fall on troubled times (sometimes Hollywood is to blame for their troubles). It's sad to say goodbye, but he left a lot of fun, light hearted movies to remember him by.

Firefly - Manga

This was a piece i did about 2 years ago. I never completely finished it but I liked the way it turned out. I've just been thinking about how much I enjoy watching that show. Has anyone ever tried running Traveller set in "The 'Verse"?

Trollzine #1

Finally the answer to The Hobbit Hole, Trollzine is a labor of love by a lot of people on Vin's Troll Bridge. It's got plenty of Tunnels & Trolls gaming material on it and some great artwork (even some of my artwork made it on Trollzine). So check it out, it's Free!
