After a computer failure and six months when I just didn’t remember it Redemund’s Guild’s (first) Fiasco playset is ready to be released. This playset was written to capture the feeling of lecherous parties of ancient Rome as depicted in tv-series such as Rome and Spartacus.
We were lucky enough to get a great feedback on this and as it happens the group actually wrote about their gaming session. You can check it HERE.
So here you go. Fata Capuam: DOWNLOAD (pdf)
Hearthstone: The Heroes of Warcraft is a collectible “card game” played on computer or tablet. I just installed it on my iPad and tried it out. And by saying “tried it out” I started fours hours ago and are still playing. As advertised it is insanely addictive. At least for someone who has been playing Magic: the Gathering for several years.
I started just to get the feeling for it and quite possibly try it out against fellow Guild members. Weirdly it didn’t let me search for familiar opponents from the beginning but guided me through the simple enough tutorials. The tutorials while informing took quite long to finish and even after that I had to challenge all possible “heroes” to get the whole thing open.

Like Lauri before me, I’ll put down some thoughts on RopeCon here.
Ropecon is a bit early this year. I’ve grown accustomed to it taking place in July but this year it is only a few weeks from now.

Have you ever wondered how Lovecraft‘s tales would work in Finnish environment? If you haven’t read any Boris Hurtta or had the chance to play with Sami Uusitalo you can watch this new short film by Matti Lehtinen. It captures the essence of H.P.Lovecraft’s Shadow Over Innsmouth quite nicely:
As discussed earlier I have granted the players a lot of narrative power in our current the Door of Shadows-campaign. One of the more surprising twists that I certainly wasn’t prepared for was that the characters decided to take part on an expedition to Egypt.
Though this post will be mostly about describing the events of an actual gaming session(s) it includes a couple of (more) interesting points about GMing – even if you are not into reading about other peoples sessions. I must also add that this post is a bit lengthy.
I mentioned the Crater Elemental + Alesha, Who Smiles at Death interaction previously. Why not try and bring that into constructed? Probably, because it won’t work the way you want it to, but we can try…
We don’t have a block constructed GP this year (and the whole format is pretty much dead now because of the new two set blocks), but I thought I’d still make this list, just like last year with Theros.
Okay, once again a more casual list, but I think there’s a seed of something here.
