TABLETOP RPGS GET CLASSY WITH THE ADVENTURER’S KIT

Designed by Mitch Barchi, the Adventurer’s Kit is what I imagine someone like Mark Twain or Winston Churchill would have played D&D with back in their day.

From the artist: 

The Adventurer’s Kit had been inspired by my lifelong passion for roleplaying games like Dungeons and Dragons or World of Dungeons. My goal was to create a portable kit that anyone could pickup and play a quick, or introductory, roleplaying session with little to no prep time. I created a simple overland map illustration for the lid using the Art Institute of Seattle’s lasercutter. I also included a standard set of polyhedral dice since they are used in many roleplaying systems. Many roleplaying systems also use miniatures, I wanted to include some basic minis for the players. The miniatures featured in these sets are vintage unpainted Heroscape monsters. Also provided is a Moleskine notebook with gridded paper if the player or game master want to map a dungeon or take notes. Each kit also includes a pamphlet for the excellent hack and slash World of Dungeons RPG system. These printouts and other adventure PDFs can be found on Dungeon-World.com for free. With the tools provided in these kits players and game masters alike can enjoy an adventure on the go.

Too bad it’s a one-off. This guy should think about pitching this to Wizards of the Coast for some sort of D&D Collector’s Edition Starter Set idea. I’d totally by the living shit out of something like that.

A THIRD BOONDOCK SAINTS IS HAPPENING
Considering how ill-received the the second one was, I definitely didn’t see this coming.

Via Geek Tyrant:

During a fan Q&A on Facebook, the director talked about his plans for a third movie, revealing the title and the plot of the film. The new movie is currently titled The Boondock Saints 3: Legion.
If you watched the sequel, then you already know that it ended with the McManus brothers, played by Sean Patrick Flanery and Norman Reedus,in prison. The Boondock Saints 3: Legion will show that while in prison they’ve gained notoriety. He also explained that the story will give us some insight to the McManus brothers’ past and offer a flashback of the very first crime for the criminal killing duo.
The “Legion” part of the title refers to the legions of people who have taken the law into their own hands and become vigilantes just like the now infamous brothers.

I’d personally like to see them bring back Willem Dafoe's character. He was the best part of the first film as far as I'm concerned and it'd be fun to see him come back as a bad-ass vigilante inspired by the McManus brothers who bust them out of prison or something.
As of now, nothing’s set in stone, so it could take who-knows-how-long for this to actually come into fruition.

Why Horror? Documentary Gets Incredible Poster

Now there’s a t-shirt to show your love for the title, as well as the love of others, thanks to WeLoveFine.com.
