About Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edtion Basic Rules

As Mike Mearls explained in Legends & Lore: The Basic Rules for Dungeons & Dragons is a PDF (over 100 pages, in fact) that covers the core of the game. It runs from levels 1 to 20 and covers the cleric, fighter, rogue, and wizard, presenting what we view as the essential subclass for each. It also provides the dwarf, elf, halfling, and human as race options; in addition, the rules contain 120 spells, 5 backgrounds, and character sheets.

About Unepic

Unepic is a combination of platforming and role playing games. There are many hilarious references throughout the game. The game takes place in Harnakon, a huge medieval castle.

It is set in the hardcore NES Style, yet refined with the latest features. This makes Unepic a very unique game.

About Warmachine

WARMACHINE players take on the role of warcasters as they lead their titanic forces into battle. Warcasters possess significant martial prowess of their own as well as having hardened warriors and magical spells to bring to bear. Players collect, assemble, and paint fantastically detailed models representing the varied warriors, machines, and creatures in their armies. WARMACHINE is fully compatible with its feral twin, the monstrous miniatures combat game of HORDES.

About Firefly: The Game

Fire up your engines and full burn out to the edge of the ‘Verse. This fall, Firefly: The Game – Blue Sun expands the game into new territory. A new Board section pushes the ‘Verse outwards, adding new systems to explore and exploit. Navigate this frontier space with an all new Nav Deck. A new Supply Planet offers new Gear to purchase and new Crew to hire. Two new Job Contacts offer new opportunities and unique game-changing challenges while the game’s other Contacts have new Jobs to claim a piece of the Rim for themselves. Two new Leaders present new strategies for players to execute as they focus on three new Story Cards. Two additional Reaver Cutters and new rules for these dangerous savages put the ‘Verse on high alert. Reaver activity is on the rise and your Crew is on the menu!

About Galactic Strike Force

Galactic Strike Force is the tactical, cooperative, space battle, deck building game from the creators of Sentinels of the Multiverse!

In Galactic Strike Force, up to six players each control a member of a rogue Strike Force assembled to struggle against galactic threats that the major powers lack either the motivation or strength to face.

Theyra: Primordial Goodness

My homegrown world Theyra shares her name with the primordial of the same name.
