Variant Boards for Zombie Cinema

August 5, 2009

We started a 4e game last night, and after ran through another game of Zombie Cinema. Only this time, we set it in an Aliens setting. Two characters were Colonial Marines and the third was a colonist. It was fun, and worked very well with using the standard board as a rough guideline. The threat in Aliens gradually grows much like how the zombie threat in Night of the Living Dead develops. Zombie Cinema ought to work extremely well with little modification for anything like that. And, while I was poking around today, I ran across the Zombie Cinema Resources page, which includes variant resources, including a couple of newly designed boards.

Happy Birthday, Mik!

July 30, 2009

Today is Mik‘s birthday. I have played more games with Mik than with any other human being, and he started off his birthday with a blast, as he wound down our first game of 3:16 Carnage Amongst the Stars as we passed midnight.

Zombie Cinema

July 2, 2009

We didn’t have anything on the plate last night, so we dabbled in some RPG stuff. We’re planning to run through a D&D 4e campaign, so we worked on our characters a bit. Then, we decided to break out Zombie Cinema and give it a go. Zombie Cinema is a small, rules-light, “storytelling” RPG, where the players are survivors of some sort of zombie breakout, in the vein of Night of the Living Dead or any of its stylistic descendants.

My Dark Heresy Feral Guardsman

June 26, 2009


We’ve had a couple of sessions of our Dark Heresy game so far, and I’ve really enjoyed it. Here is my completed character model. I still haven’t had a chance to actually pick up the sword yet, but I’ve gathered enough money to grab it once I have the chance. Assuming I stay alive long enough…I tried jumping out of a second story building and wound up darn near killing myself…

Dark Heresy

May 3, 2009


It looks like we will be doing a Dark Heresy role playing game. We rolled up characters the other night, and it looks promising. I whipped up a conversion of my feral world Imperial Guard character, replete with flintlock rifle, pistol, explosive collar and (hoped for) mono-edged great sword. I will probably add some wild hair to him.

Sounds like we may be playing a little Dark Heresy…I ordered the core rulebook today.

Agora: How Shall We Live?

April 21, 2009

I heard about Agora on the Master Plan podcast, and thought it sounded interesting. You’re actually simulating the construction of a society from one of several colonies on a distant planet. It’s framed that you’re roleplaying the ideologue leader of your faction, but it looks like it’s more faction than personally focused. I haven’t looked at it too closely, but it reminded me of a Sci-Fi version Dawn of Worlds, although it looks more complicated.

What I Have Been Doing

April 21, 2009

Updates have obviously trickled dry after a nice little run as life caught up with me. I have three kids, the youngest of which just turned one, and they can be quite a handful. In the last month since my last post, I managed to play in a game of Red November, which I found fun. I thought the rules were a bit ambiguous in places, but probably with a few plays through to sort that out, it would make for a quick, fun game. I got in a couple of games of our monthly 3.5 D&D game, as well as the online GURPS game I participate in (I’m Tonim). I even ran a game of Spirit of the Century. I also finished the Dan Abnett Ravenor trilogy. Looking at that, I guess my gaming life hasn’t been the wasteland it’s felt the last couple months. I mean, it’s almost May, and I’ve only painted just 14-15 figures, less than four figures a month!!
