As I mention in our end of January update, which should be appearing shortly, my family celebrated Christmas in January this year as we were short of money for the actual holiday.
So what does a Christmas look like at the Mizak gaming house.
Vik's gifts include--Copy of Betrayal on the House on the Hill and the card game Conquest.
Caz's gifts include--Copy of Five Tribes and some sort of video game
TC's gifts include--Copy of Terra Mystica, the expansion for Chrononauts card game and a video game.»Read more
Rather than provide all fantasy maps, I thought I'd spend some time working on various techniques to represent interior deck plans of star ships for the FrontierSpace role playing game. I finally settled on this technique. I'm not sure if I like the color or B&W version better for the book's interior. They both have their appeal. I like this representation because it leaves a lot to the imagination rather than trying to show where every button and every chair or bed resides.

I just wanted to give everyone an update about where we're at with various projects. Some weeks we accomplish quite a bit, while others our projects stall a bit while we deal with real life situations (the only down-side to being a small company). For that reason, rather than weekly, we're going to try to give updates like this on or around the 15th and 30th of every month. This way you'll see what we're up to (in an almost-stalker fashion, really) when we seem like we're not releasing stuff. Since this is the first of this attempt at a committed progress blog, we'll start with an overview of the pans we currently have in the fire. Sorry for the long blog, subsequent ones will be lighter reads.»Read more
Everyone knows the enchanter can create some amazing works of magic. But not everything turns out the way its creator wants. And sometimes, people want some really dumb things, at least by other people’s standards.
Adventurers are happy when they find a powerful sword, a shield that makes them legends, or a staff that shakes the foundation of the world. But not all magic items are so magnificent. Since permanent enchantments can outlast the purposes of their creators, it’s reasonable to assume the fantasy world is riddled with unusual magic items of a much less impressive nature.»Read more
I went old school on this installment of freemapfriday... a blue map like you'd find in the inside cover of some 1980's TSR module. I loved those maps, and so I tried to emulate their style. Feedback welcome.
Like all freemapfriday maps, this is free to use for private and commercial uses. Attribution appreciated but not required. Just share with me how you use it... those emails are what keep me making these!
