Beamed away...

I hope if you wanted a printed copy of Far Trek you got one!

If not, sorry...but another opportunity with a different cover will come sometime in early 2016! You can still download a PDF of the rules for free.

To those who very kindly bought a fellow gamer a beer or picked another one of my games? Thanks very much I appreciate greatly your kindness!

I look forward to hearing some gaming reports or reviews of your experiences with Far Trek.

Merry Trek-mas to all and to all a good night!

First steps towards OGRE

I am a big fan of Steve Jackson's OGRE game.  It is the baseline and entry level wargame I use to get people interested in wargaming.  In addition its just a damn cool game.  Never played? Damn that is sad...okay here's the lowdown: A giant cybernetic tank (OGRE) rolls across the battlefield with one goal--to destroy the enemies command post. One player is the OGRE and the other player is the defender with a range of infantry, tanks, and artillery trying to stop the OGRE in its tracks.

While and over the top designer edition came out (yes I did buy it) there was also a reprint of the original edition!  It's a svelte pocket edition that comes in a bag and it is portable AWESOME.  In fact for $2 bucks (+ shipping) YOU can own and play it!  C'mon your Starbucks frapa-crappa cost 3 times as much--give Uncle Steve some love and  GO GET IT! 

Okay so you are going to go buy it and try it and love it...and this is important because the Russian are taking the first steps toward OGRE development.  They are discussing converting T-90 tanks into a remotely controlled tank...controlled by "video gamers."  That's the first step towards development of a self sentient tank...

Oh and if you want to read some great cybernetic tank sci-fi?? Go read the BOLOS books by Keith Laumer and assorted other authors.  Good stuff if you like military sci-fi!

Still waters run deep...

While my time is 99% spent working on my TFT inspired game Heroes & Other Worlds, I messed around with my long in process nod to an OSR game Peril this week.

I was inspired to get back to basics and get the primary rules down to a few pages of core rules stuff.  So the first Peril Pocket sample is availble now in Pocketmod format or full page sized. I am about 80% done with second Peril Pocket #2 sample which will cover the basics for magic characters, spell casting and a brief creature list and rules for them.

Download Peril Sample #1 now!
