The History Of Marvel's Mutants...


#RPG What's In The Cards For The Tuesday Knights This Month?


The Tuesday Knights gather this evening for our monthly exploration of Ravenloft in Simon's 5e Dungeons & DragonsCurse Of Strahd campaign.

Picking up from the end of last month's session, our heroes have returned to Madam Eva's caravan to discover what her tarokka cards have prophesied for us in our on-going struggles with the vampiric overlord of the realm, Count Strahd Von Zarovich.

The Garage Project...


When you move house, you inevitably stumble upon 'old treasures' that you don't know what to do with.

One such treasure was this toy garage that my dad crafted for me from scratch, when I was a toddler.

It's always been part of my "collection", and when I was young I used to vroom my Hot Wheels in, out, and around it.

However, not so much in recent years!

To be honest, it's quite large and it's seen better days - as you can tell from the pictures - but I couldn't bear the thought of junking it, or even giving it to charity, because of its enormous sentimental value.

Rachel and I talked about gifting it to one of our friends who has children, but we couldn't think of any that were around the right age to be playing with a chunky toy garage.

Then, Rachel hit upon a winning idea.

She said she would create a space in the garden room for it, as long as I was willing to give it a lick of paint. Then I could use it to display some of my larger scale vintage (often Batman-related) cars that we keep coming across in the corners of packing boxes.

While I'm tentative about applying my cack-handed artistic skills to something dad built, I'm excited for the challenge.

Come the summer, when more of the boxes have gone from our house, I'll be able to put some music on and take my time repainting this old toy, sprucing it up as a display piece.

#RPG Is It Strange That I'm Slightly Envious Because I Can't Afford To Get Into Hell?



If I was independently wealthy and our "dream home" was actually a mansion (or a TARDIS), I'd be all over this latest Dwarven Forge Kickstarter.

One of my "holy grail" campaign ideas - inspired by a classic yarn from the David A. Hargrave's Arduin Grimoire - has long been to send PCs down into Hell to rescue the enslaved soul of one of their own.

For me, that's the epitome of heroism - going into the most evil place in your gaming universe, battling the most evil creatures, not for wealth or magical items, but to save the soul of a fellow adventurer.

If/when I finally get to run this scenario for the Tuesday Knights, we'll be using gaming maps and tiles, though.

I suspect if I actually purchased this terrain, Rachel really would give me Hell!!!


But I can still drool over the latest, gorgeous offering from Dwarven Forge (and look with green-eyed envy at those who can afford to dress up their gaming tables with these incredible terrain pieces).

Complete with moving parts and flickering illuminations, for those with a more sci-fi bent, a lot of of these terrain pieces could be used to make a pretty impressive Mustafar board for Star Wars battles.
