Kickstarter - Cool Dice Bags...with dice inside!



I think I've mentioned this before but I really like dice. I also like dice bags but usually the ones I REALLY like are priced beyond my impulse buy price point and I usually just get plain old run of the mill dice bags.

Now, Cool Dice Bags...with dice inside! might be a silly name for a Kickstarter but it does convey what is being offered. Oh, and offered at a really attractive price, too.

These embroidered, 5" x 8" bags are 9 bucks a bag plus shipping. Back for 5 (like a certain bartender you might know) at 34 bucks plus 5 to ship. Did I mention there's a free dice set included with each bag?

I already know Rach wants the "Green Man" dice bag. I don't need to ask. Trust me.

I'll be traveling with style - maybe even in time for Gary Con ;)

+Jarrod Shaw has 46 lots of RPGs bundled from early Mythoard boxes. Priced at 50 bucks a bundle (shipping included in the US) there is a HUGE amount of games and gaming content to choose from.

https://www.ebay.com/usr/missy28675?_trksid=p2047675.l2559

There's enough in each lot to gift a full gaming group.

Everything is Dolphins makes a few appearances. If you want to roleplay Echo the Dolphin from the days of the Sega CD, here's your chance ;)

Deal of the Day - WWII: Operation WhiteBox



Today's Deal of the Day at RPGNow is WWII: Operation WhiteBox. If you've ever been interested in mixing some modern warfare with your Swords & Wizardry rules, WWII: Operation WhiteBox is where you should be looking.

Normally priced at $7.99 for the PDF, you can grab your copy of WWII: Operation WhiteBox for $3.20 until 11 AM tomorrow morning.

The Print version is normally $17.99, its currently on sale for $9.99
In WWII: Operation WhiteBox, the player characters (PCs) play the role of WWII special forces operatives. They may be formally trained and part of an officially designated special forces unit such as the SAS or U.S. Army Airborne, or they may simply be guerilla fighters dedicated to making life hard for the German Army. They may also be covert agents working for organizations such as the SOE or OSS. Whatever their affiliation, their job is to complete missions behind enemy lines, paving the way for the next Allied advance.
  • WWII: Operation WhiteBox is a standalone game that uses the Swords & Wizardry WhiteBox rules as its base. In addition to standard gameplay rules, the game contains the following: 
  • CHARGEN: This includes Attributes, Nationality, Rank, Profession, etc.
  • NEW CLASSES: Eight new classes including the Charmer, Combat Engineer, Grunt, Maquis, Sniper, Tactician, Wheelman, Uberlaufer, each with their own unique abilities. 
  • GEAR AND WEAPONS: A list of typical WWII weapons and gear. Weapons are statistically grouped by function (Large Rifle, Small Handgun, Submachinegun, etc.) with some named examples to add flavor (M1 Garand, Derringer, MP40, etc.). 
  • PLAYING THE GAME: Rules for Saving Throws, Surprise, Reaction Rolls, Movement, etc.
  • PERSONAL COMBAT: Rules for "theater of the mind" combat including new rules for automatic weapons, using cover and concealment, and explosives. 
  • VEHICLE COMBAT: Rules for "theater of the mind" vehicle combat (basically the same as personal combat) and vehicles grouped and statted out (Small Truck, Medium Tank, Small Aircraft, etc.) with named examples to add flavor (Kubelwagen, M4 Sherman, Brirish Spitfire, etc.). 
  • GAMEPLAY EXAMPLE: A gameplay write up to show some of the new concepts in action. 
  • COMMON NPCs AND ANIMALS: Stats and descriptions for civilians, soldiers, and common European animals. 
  • COVERT SPECIAL FORCES EQUIPMENT: Descriptions of some real world equipment designed and/or used by special forces during WWII. 
  • THE WWII CAMPAIGN: This chapter gives an overview of the different theaters, major events of the different time periods, and lots and lots of tips for running a WWII campaign. 
  • SPECIAL FORCES IN THE EUROPEAN THEATER: An overview of various Allied special forces units such as the SAS, LRDG, OSS, etc., resistance organizations such as the French Maquis and the Norwegian Milorg, an German special forces units such as the Brandenburgers. This chapter also runs down how to design a special forces mission as well as the different types of missions commonly undertaken. 
  • WWII TIMELINE: A chronological timeline of major WWII dates and events.
  • HISTORIC WWII SPECIAL FORCES ACTIONS: Contains a brief description of real world historical missions undertaken by units like the British Commandos, Jedburghs, etc.
  • RESISTANCE AT THE PONTEVILLE BRIDGE: A sample mission deep in Normandy. 
  • MASS COMBAT RULES: Quick and dirty rules for resolving Mass Combat as well as how to incorporate PC missions into the results. 
  • MINI-SETTINGS: Nazi Superscience, Nazi Occult, and Nazi Space elements to liven up your game!

I've been messaged through Facebook, G Plus and other email addresses and such is the way of madness. Trust me on this. I suspect one or more has slipped through the cracks ;)
