To most hardcore fans of Shadowrun (The rabid, frothing at the mouth fundamental lunatics), the setting and spirit of Shadowrun and the 20-sideder mix like a vodka tonic with baking soda. However, there’s always a brave soul willing to weather a night of foaming vomit and try a conversion: the folks at this blog. (Chemistry Disclaimer: I’m not actually sure that it would foam before or after ingestion, and I’m not wasting the booze to find out) I gave it a quick once over, and it actually looks like it could work pretty well. Of course, there are some things I would do differently, but I think it’s a nice start. I hope it works out for their group.
The folks over at Twin Blade Games have developed Sen So, a two player gladitorial style strategy game. The base game is designed for ninja combat, but many expansions exist; Pirates, Zombies, and Archers for example. It looks like it could be fun, and I’m hoping to obtain a sample for a future playtest.
Finally, everyone be sure to check Half Priced Book stores in the gaming section. I’ve never seen anything gaming related carrying a jacked-up collector’s price for any of the gems I’ve found at their stores.
It’s not much of post, but I figured we were due for some grids.
