Somewhat gamy
Since my last post about it I've created a bunch more YouTube videos. More Realm of the Mad God videos, more videos of me playing The Unfair Platformer, a video about my experiences during Halloween ComicFest, a video about the Spirit of the Century RPG, and a video of me playing Zombie In My Pocket, which is a free print-n-play solo play game. If any of those things interest you please check out the videos and let me know what you think.

Look at me! Look at me!
I have committed the sin of internet video. If you go over to YouTube and search on "Kevin G. Austin" you'll find my channel. Not many videos there yet. So far it's just one video of me playing Realm of the Mad God and four videos of me playing The Unfair Platformer. To understand the "The Unfair Platformer" videos I suggest you do a search on "Unfair Platformer" and watch a few other people playing it before you watch my videos. I could also suggest you try playing it first, but I'm not that cruel. I'm planning on having non-game play videos as well, though they'll all probably be pretty geeky. I'm working on one now that's about the Spirit of the Century RPG and at least one video on gaming related things I've picked up at the Dollar Tree.

It was a graveyard smash!
Is anybody planning on going to any of the participating comic book stores this Halloween for Halloween Comic Fest? Has anybody done this in the past? If so, what was your experience? I've always missed Free Comic Book Day because it's been the same weekend as Demicon. I'm hoping to make it to at least two or three stores by bus before they're all out of everything.

Spooooky!
Has anyone tried using any of these figures or set pieces in a role-playing campaign? Any reactions positive or negative from players? Certainly a lot cheaper than anything from Dwarven Forge.


Let me see!Collapse )

"Be prepared!" - Tom Lehrer
Two takeaways from this story.
  1. Whatever you're doing right now might be technically legal.
  2. Always remember to carry at least ½ ounce of marijuana with you in Fargo or you might be cited.

I'm just a little ray of sunshine
Has anyone else been following the West Africa Ebola outbreak story? It's like watching people play a game of Pandemic where you really, really want the players to win.

Zen Without Zen Masters
I've loaned my copy to a couple of you, and probably mentioned it to a few others. Unfortunately up until now it's been difficult to get a copy of your very own. That problem has been solved because they've finally issued a second edition of Zen Without Zen Masters.
