DCC Lankhmar - Kickstarter - 10 hours left!

Heya folks!

I just wanted to get up a quick post for people that are unaware Goodman Games is in the last ten hours of their DCC Lankhmar Kickstarter project.  Head on over here to pledge:

DCC Lankhmar

The campaign is roughly $7,000 away from a DCC Lankhmar themed Judges Screen, which would be a pretty sweet addon.  There are options to support this in both .pdf or print AND there are lots of addon's like a copy of the DCC RPG 4th printing rulebook or your very own copy of Rat-Snake, the Lankhmar inspired dice game that Fritz Leiber's characters play in his stories.

If you a fan of DCC RPG or Lankhmar you need to support this Kickstarter!

Take care folks, more to come soon!

Jon Hodgson working his magic!  Great cover!
Heya folks,

I'm back again (I can never seem to stay away) with ANOTHER The One Ring product review, this time its the brand new Adventurer's Companion!  It's so new that my copy just arrived today hot off the presses!  This book is 160 pages long and covers everything character related, all of the previous cultures are included as well as several new ones, there are also new rules, new stuff to do during the fellowship phase and a chapter called Curious Diversions which is a lot of fun.  The book closes out with some reference material that should be welcome in any The One Ring group.

Third Die Dice Bags - A Review

This is the one I purchased and I love it!
Heya folks!

I wanted to do a short review on the new Third Die dice bag I received in the mail a few days ago.  This is the nicest dice bag I have ever owned, its beautifully crafted and is HUGE, it can supposedly hold 150 dice!

I purchased the Light Brown Celtic Tree version for a very fair $19.99.  The Celtic Tree logo on the outside is metal and the interior and exterior of the bag is made with a very soft microfiber material.  It stands open by itself without any propping up and has a draw-sting at the top to close it up.  Prices range from $14.99 to $19.99 depending on the logo, color and size of the bag.  Their large bag, the Bag of Hoarding can hold 450 dice!  Yowza!

Bag of Hoarding, its YUGE!
I highly suggest these dice bags, they're beautifully made and are the perfect size, go get one now!  Bags can be purchased here: https://third-die.com/

ARMA 3 HAVOC 1-3 Training and Mission 19FEB17 - Afghan Deployment

Heya folks,

The 506th Infantry Regiment had another training session yesterday prior to our first mission in our recent deployment to Afghanistan.  The focus was on team awareness and the rules of engagement as many of the locals have weapons for personal protection.  The video is around 40 minutes long.

Later that same evening I participated in the first mission of Operation Black Adder.  With the 506th deployed to Peregrine Airfield in Afghanistan we needed to start securing the surrounding area of operation.  Alpha Company, 1st Platoon was tasked with marching into the hills to assault, capture and eliminate an enemy encampment that was within six clicks of the airfield.  I was acting as the 1 platoon, 3rd squad, Bravo team (1-3-B) AR gunner under Sgt Richie.  After hiking up into the mountains we were spotted and illuminated by a flare, shortly after we came under fire from an em-placed machine gun which we assaulted into an eliminated.  We took sporadic indirect fire from enemy mortars while we maneuvered towards the encampment, 1-3 was the base of fire team, we provided over-watch and engaged at range while 1-1 and 1-2 assaulted down the hill into the encampment.  We then repulsed enemy a counterattack from over 1000m away.  The mission ended with us digging in and settling down for the night.  Overall it was a pretty successful mission, we had one casualty in the platoon but he is healing up fine.  The video is about one hour and fifteen minutes long, that's with forty five minutes of hiking through the hills cut out!  I hope you enjoy!
