Heroic Issue 2 Now Available!

Two successful Kickstarters have led to the release of the first two issues of 'Heroic' by Zenith Comics which offers readers a great introduction into a new comic book universe.  While it is normally difficult to get involved in reading something already established, and despite years of development that have gone into creating this universe (albeit in a homespun Superhero RPG campaign), the story instead focuses on the story which is integral to the what will be a 6-issue story arc.  Bits and pieces of the universe are dropped in and provided to the reader but not in a pace that would overwhelm the reader with details that would take away from what is shaping up to be a great story.  More importantly, this isn't a typical one-issue origin story but a story that builds up across the initial 6-issue arc.

Backers of the project have all gotten their copies (digital and physical) for issue 1 and with the digital release of issue 2, those physical copies won't be too far behind.  It's always nice to see a successful crowdfunding effort meet its objectives and deliver on the goods!  Better yet, the campaign for the 3rd issue won't start until the physical copies are in the readers hands.

If this is the first you've heard of Zenith Comics or Heroic and you're at least curious, nothing could be simpler to get caught up and up to speed with the story thus far.

A digital copy of the first issue of Heroic can be gotten HERE where as a copy of issue 2 can be gotten HERE.  Both are pay what you want though the suggested price for either is below $2.00

It doesn't get much more 'indie' than this though but everything about this comic is high caliber as far as content, art, and quality is concerned.  The Heroic comic book series is off to a great start and continued support means actual development will also pick up the pace as more resources will actually make this possible.

Keep them dice rolling and happy reading!

Troll Lord Games SALE!


No... not the company but their product line in digital format.  TLG is the proud publishers of games like Castles & Crusades and Amazing Adventures.  If you already collect their stuff and love PDFs but are missing a few things from the collection, then you may want to head over to DriveThru or RPGNow (both part of the One Book Self family) over HERE and grab them while you can since most of their lineup (I want to say all but I'd probably be mistaken) is on sale for up to 50% off!

Best not wait too long as the sale ends this Sunday.

Many adventures are in the $2.00 to $3.00 range and the core books are also half off which is a good way to get into the game if you've considered but haven't bought into the game yet.  If you do this though, a small friendly tip: While the C&C Bundle is usually a good way to go, you are WAY better off to pick up the PHB and M&T books in PDF for $10.50 each ($21 for both) and pick an adventure (there are many great ones to choose from) for a couple of dollars.  Less than $25 bucks for a complete game and adventure scenario?  How can you lose with that!

If fantasy isn't your thing, maybe check out Amazing Adventures.  It recently got an overhaul with the new printing with a lot more material and companion books.  It's also worth checking out but, being new, the discounts aren't as big.  Regardless, there is plenty to choose from.


Happy Gaming!

Well... May... Right?


Hello faithful readers!  Sorry if there has been absolutely nothing to read here since the end of April!

As some of you recall, I'm getting married and that is less than two months away.  May has been a busy month as planning and organizing continues towards that particular date.  I also turned 40 last month so there was much rejoicing and celebrating.

Aside from wedding details, I wish I have been up to more but truthfully, there has been little painting, gaming, writing, or even reading the past 5 weeks or so.

But, I have been lurking, plotting, and even clearing out some of my older gaming material.  I have been keeping up with some news and there is three things I would like to point out:

1) The new and revised Petty Gods is freaking amazing.  There will be an attempt to get back into the groove of my Weekend R&R series and I will take to review this gem.

2) Zenith Comics has release issue two in PDF.  I will also expand on this in the days ahead but, if you have taken my past advice when I mentioned issue one, it is now your chance to grab issue 2 as a 'Pay What You Want' offering over on DriveThru!  You can grab a copy HERE.

3) Troll Lord Games is having an amazing sale over through the same family of services (DriveThru and RPGNow!).  This ends Sunday but right now is your chance to get a bunch of stuff while things are going for 50% off!  Check it out HERE.

So... I'll be reminding you guys over the next day or two of both the new issue of Heroic by Zenith Comics as well as TLG's sale.  In the meantime, as a few key things get finalized for my wedding and subsequent honeymoon in Indianapolis, things should pick up around here as another siege lifts in this bastion known as my life.

And yes... you read that last bit correctly.  My honeymoon is in Indianapolis and, more specifically, GenCon.  That is the kind of lucky man I am.  ;)
