KS Golem Arcana

Edit: And it’s good!  In just 7 hours left, the Golem Arcana KS campaign finished, and while its numbers are still slowly climbing, we’re all hoping for another $50k to get the remote play stretch goal!

 

The good folks at Harebrained Schemes is producing a new game, which the funding will end here in another 36 hours.  Golem Arcana is a miniatures game without the hassle of rulers, twenty handbooks, and fists full of dice (though that’s optional).  They’re just shy of $20,000 to be funded, so please consider it!  The base game (at Tribesman level) is $65, but there are extras if you pledge more!

Reaper Mini Produces, Harebrained Gears Up, and College

So those who got into the Reaper Miniatures Bones Kickstarter (see the icon to the right), they sent out all the Vampire level kits a bit ago.  241 figures were listed on the sheet for the Vampire level, and I got more of the NOVA squad figures than what I was supposed to.  Now I wish I had opted for some paints…

Second on the list, is Harebrained Schemes, who is doing the Shadowrun Returns game (again, look to the right), is gearing up their Kickstarter returns.  Doc Wagon pictures and names are being submitted, t-shirt sizes are being chosen, and credit names are being pondered.  If you’re a Kickstarter, reading this, and haven’t filled in your info before April 22nd, 2013, you might be outa luck.

Right, college.  For those who don’t know, I’m going back-ish.  My bachelors is coming through Western Governors University (WGU.edu), in Information Technology.  I passed my first class a couple of weeks ago, and got a professional certification out of it (CIW Web Foundations Associate), with a score of 83 out of 85.  I’m working through the Web Development Fundamentals course now, which focuses on ASP.NET.  By Crom, I dislike Microsoft, but when the code needs to be done, they do have the tools.

Torment: Tides of Numenera – Sucessor

Today, I would like to point to a Kickstarter that began two days ago, and was funded in less than 6 hours.  Torment: Tides of Numenera.

Many years ago, there was a game called Planescape: Torment.  It was, and is, an epic game, with many, many paths to go down, be, and do.  Like many games, it has an ending scene, where all paths lead, but the amount of webbing between the start and the end are complex and can cross over to each other easily.

Now, some of the same people who did the original are kickstarting a successor.  Not a sequel, not a continuation or a branch off, but a game that has the same basic question: What can change the nature of a man?

It will be epic, I promise you.  Fund it if you can!

Some things…

Off to the side, you’ll probably see that there’s a couple more icons for things.  Please, don’t let me distract you from clicking on them.  Go ahead!

They, aside from my Untappd profile page (the gold icon with the two bottles), are Kickstarter projects I’ve helped fund.  They were awesome going in, and all are providing adequate updates on a regular basis.  The only ones I missed out on that I wanted was Wasteland 2 and the Pathfinder MMO.

I’ve also updated my Battle.net profile links to include my StarCraft II profile.

Ah, and BlizzCon 2013 will be happening.  It’s in November.
