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.

'Zero Charisma': One Nerd Movie To Rule Them All [TRAILER]
A group of Dungeons & Dragons players invite a charismatic hipster into their playgroup, but something about him rubs their Dungeon Master the wrong way.
[[MORE]]

Official synopsis:

As the strict Game Master of a fantasy role-playing game, Scott (Sam Eidson) leads his friends in a weekly quest through mysterious lands from the safety of his grandmother’s kitchen. But his mastery of his own domain starts to slip—along with everything else in his life—when neo-nerd hipster Miles (Garrett Graham) joins the game, winning over the group with his confident charm and dethroning Scott with an unexpected coup. Caught in delusions of grandeur, Scott must roll the dice and risk everything to expose Miles as the fraud he believes him to be. A darkly comedic fable of epic proportions, Zero Charisma is an ode to nerds from every realm.

Zero Charisma hits iTunes October 8 and theaters October 11.

Finally! A Shuma-Gorath Heroclix Figure
For those of us who are seeking to play a tabletop version of Marvel Vs Capcom, the roster just got a bit bigger. After years of being absent from the tabletop game, the Great Old One has entered the game.
Not only is he a really detailed, awesome sculpt, but he is ridiculously powerful (check out his stats below.) Plus, he has a movable eye. I would have a blast setting that eye on my next target.
The downside? He is convention exclusive. This isn’t the first time that I’ve been shafted by the best characters only being available at conventions. I don’t think there is any figure I want more than the Capt. America Punisher.
However, due to overwhelming demand for the figure, Wizkids is putting a few of them up on their eBay store for people to buy at 50 bucks. Not bad for the Unclosing Eye.

Hello Kitty Heroclix Inbound?
A new press release announced a collaboration between Sanrio and NECA which will bring about a new Hello Kitty collection targeted at hardcore collectors.
The most curious section noted that a special Hello Kitty set of the popular (and awesome) Wizkids’ Heroclix is going to be revealed with the set at the New York Comic-Con.
Heroclix is an great tabletop game that mirrors the gameplay of something like Final Fantasy tactics using miniatures from Marvel and DC superheroes. However, with the latest expansions to Heroclix including IPs such as Assassin’s Creed, Street Fighter and Bioshock, it is no surprise that other recognizable properties are getting Heroclix releases. However, Hello Kitty is a bit surprising.
Can’t wait to see what this brings to the game. Heroclix is a fantastic hobby and I love seeing it grow. If you are a fan of strategy games and comics, you should be playing this game.
