Coming Soon: New Edition of Warriors of the Red Planet RPG

The new year just started and I get to share some really cool news: the Warriors of the Red Planet RPG is getting a new edition

I picked up the beta when it became available about a year-and-a-half ago (sheesh, where does the friggin' time go, eh?) and was impressed with it, so much so that I connected with some folks (including the creators) on Google Plus. I didn't actually do much in the way of playtesting, but I did read through it and engaged in some house rule conversations with the other Marsophiles on Google Plus.

So...I guess you would call the upcoming version the first, official "full" edition? Whatever you call it, I have full confidence that Messrs. Krombach (of Beyond the Black Gate fame) and Denmark (He of the Many Blogs) will deliver an incredible game! Check it out, and get your a$$ to Mars!

May the Road to Adventure Go Ever On and On...

Happy New Year to one and all in the gaming blogosphere! May you have much high adventure in 2016! I dedicate Bowie's Ballad of the Adventurers to you!

Sickened by sun, with rainstorms lashing him rotten
A looted wreath crowning his tangled hair
Every moment of his youth apart from its dream was forgotten
Gone the roof overhead, but the sky was always there
Oh you, who are flung out, alike from heaven and from Hades
You murderers who've been so bitterly repaid
Why did you part from the mothers who nursed you as babies
It was peaceful and you slept and there you stayed
Still he explores and rakes the absinthe green oceans
Though his mother has given him up for lost
Grinning and cursing with a few odd tears of contrition
Always in search of that land where life seems best
Loafing through hells and flocked through paradises
Calm and grinning, with a vanishing face
At times he still dreams of a small field he recognises
With a blue sky overhead and nothing else

End-of-Year Elmore (Farewell to 2015!)

Well, here we are again: on the cusp of another new year! I will be making an effort to get at least some roleplaying in as 2016 progresses. The itch to roll the funny-looking polyhedrals never leaves me completely, and I'm sure I will have to scratch the itch before I go crazy!

I also want to make use of the board games that have been gathering dust on my shelves for too long...and I'm looking forward to getting the massive Conan board game finally!

What are your new year gaming resolutions?

I'll be back later today for my 40th post of the 40th year!
