Weekly Roundup – Who Wins the Free Book Edition

On Thursday we reviewed the new Gamma World novel “Sooner Dead” by Mel Odom.  We also had a contest to give away a copy of the book, and the winners are…..  Sandy Walsh and Craig Majors! “Wait a minute” you say, “you were only giving away ONE book.”  Well, as it turns out, I was able to get a hold of the author, and he was willing to add a copy to the contest.  It was a little unclear, but I think he will also be signing that copy.  So, congratulations!  We’ll be contacting you shortly.  And now, on with the Weekly Roundup:

We haven’t heard from Sarah Darkmagic in a while, and were beginning to wonder where she went.  She posted some good thoughts this week on player resource management, and why you might want to get your players to think outside the box.

Shawn Merwin reflected on his time at DDXP over at Critical Hits.  This article was a lot of fun to read, and many of the thoughts apply to conventions in general.  You need to read this, if for no other reason than this quote: “Where there is gaming there must be nerd-rage, just as where there is a NY Jets game, there must be asshattery.”

Do you like Gamma World?  Do you like Rifts? Smoosh them together!  That’s what Menage a Monster did.  We like the results.

The Hopeless Gamer had an amazing guest post detailing how to make a ravine for your miniature game terrain.  Say it with me: Arts…..And…..Crafts!!!

Finally, we would be remiss if we did not mention the release of the first Living Forgotten Realms epic module: The Glorious Hunt.  Huzzah!
