    The Best of 2015?

    What a year it’s been.

    The C’thu are coming…

    Greetings all,

    I trust you’ve all had a better xmas holiday break so far than I’ve had. I got a present off my eldest a day early – it was her stomach bug.

    Relics Reinforcements 2 and a new Crowdfunding site…

    Good Morning (and now afternoon) All,

    I should be writing my Sunday Morning blog post on TGC but I thought I’d put this here as it will focus on the one thing, the Relics Reinforcements 2 project that’s happening on a new Crowd-funding website called ‘GamingFunder‘, and yes it’s just for us gamers!

    Fantasy Football – Tor Gaming’s ‘Relics Armistice League’

    Golem“In a world as bleak and barren as Relicia it is somewhat difficult to believe there is any hope for the most dominant warring factions as most of the time they are hell bent on destroying each other in the most imaginatively brutal fashions possible. Yet to my amazement, in the midst of the black vortex of pain and suffering that has become second nature to the quirky inhabitants of Relicia, there seems to be a shining ray of hopeful light…”

    Relics – The NEW rulebook, a first glimpse

    So folks what brings me back here during a busy time in my life.

    Well I’m happy to say that today I managed to get my hands onto the new Relics Rulebook.

    As you may be aware if you’ve followed this blog I am a big liker of Relics because it’s quite different in how it’s rules work (which is copied in other games these days) from the ‘To Hit’ rolls also mean to wound and require you to roll pairs, ie with 2 dice you need 1’s on both or 6’s, as long as it’s a pair it doesn’t matter (well almost).

    March is gone, so what have I been doing?

    Evening,

    I should be out but instead I’m at home, writing this of course.

    Now that March has gone (well nearly) it’s time to look at what’s happened.

    First, let’s look at Relics.

    As some of you might remember Tor Gaming ran a KS project called ‘Relics Reinforcements‘ during Jan/Feb, well time is moving on and so I thought I’d pop back to see what they were upto.

    They’ve been busy.

    Relics Reinforcements, what’s going on?

    Well Folks, it’s been just over 2 weeks since I made this post here regarding the start of the new Relics Kickstarter Project.

    So after my ramblings earlier on, I thought I’d actually check on the progress and see what else my local War gaming company is upto.

    First the Kickstarter project.

    Wargaming – the cost of making new games….well the models anyway!

    Morning Folks,

    I’ve been ill for a few days and now I’m really bored of it.

    This morning I was thinking about war gaming again, well re-thinking about a game I wanted to create last year.

    The problem is this.

    Relics Reinforcements!

    I’ve been a bit slow off the mark with this one as one of my favourite war games launched a new Kickstarter Project a few days ago.

    As those of you who have read my ramblings before may know, I’m quite a big fan of the mechanics of Relics and one of the factions within, that of the Britanan’s who are a faction of mainly stuffed dolls brought back to life by a Puppeteer….

    If you’re into you tabletop war gaming and fancy trying something different to 40k/GW/Warmahordes/Dystopian etc then this is a great little game.

    More strange goings on in the world of Relicia….a game of football being played?

    I’ve been absent from my blog for a good while.

    Sadly my evenings and weekends have all been occupied with the extension to my home here in Yorkshire. I didn’t realise the time it would take to clean rooms of their clutter to allow carpets to go down, clear those rooms that were used to have them fitted with new carpets, only after doing all of this to paint the rooms. Madness.

    Anyway I digress as I’m here to talk about the Relics Armistice League. What’s that you ask? Well the world of Relicia is rather dark, well more than dark, it’s very dark and deadly,
