Reviving the Dead...

A Half-Orc Cleric Raises a Skeletal Soldier on the Field of Battle
It's October, or 'Zombtober' as a lot of hobby blogs like to tout.  That means lots of horror and zombie themed posts and projects are a must.  I'm hoping to have Chris Miller on board with some October themed art posts, but as of this writing I haven't locked that down...yet.  I will leave you with this photo, ironically done by Miller during a Pathfinder game months and months ago.  It doesn't get any more undead than raising a skeleton, so what a perfect kick off to October.  Enjoy!

Terra Mystica, Quick Pics Post

The game; Terra Mystica.  The beer; Highland Brewing
Player mat up front, game board in the background
The spirit of brotherhood, the spirit of giving
The 'terra' of the game; matching your race to their biome
Controlling, terraforming, conquering, building...it's all here
Last of the quick pics posts, or at least the ones that were queued up.  The game is Terra Mystica and after playing this just one time I was in love and sought it out immediately.  So much replay value, so much in the box, fantastic components, and a ruleset that just doesn't quit.  There's so much to this game I could do an entire series of posts on it, but that's a tale for another time.  Enjoy!

Roman Seas, Quick Pics Post

A big ole game of Roman Seas
One of the ships, made from paper with lead figs riding on top
About as quick pic as it gets with just two photos, which doesn't do this great game with fantastic models any justice at all.  This naval scenario had one fleet trying to run a blockade while also avoiding shallow areas that could ground the larger ships.  This was a hard fought battle and once contact was made it got to be quite a frenzy of ballista, boarding, and ramming.  Enjoy!
