So the 9th edition Space Marine codex is out, and because of that i’m revisiting my old Deathwing army. With the new Index rules for the Dark Angels, there’s a brand new army on the block. i am actually thinking about dusting off the army case my Deathwing is in and putting them back on the tabletop. So what does this look like and why am i considering this now in the middle of a pandemic and almost a year of isolation? Well, the new rules are kind of neat.

Wine and Spirits
Wine and Spirits is billed as a 4 hour adventure for the 5th edition of the Dungeons and Dragons rules set. Published by Rat King Games, and retailing for $7.99, it’s a horror themed adventure focused on a haunting in a small town that plays out over a single night. I’ll talk a bit about what i like about the adventure, the things that get in the way, and the ease of you running/playing it in your home game.
Hey everyone, we’re back with a very brief rundown of Into the Motherlands RPG that premiered Oct. 4th on Twitch. Powered by the Cortex system from Fandom, and telling the story of lost explorers, Into the Motherlands is something that we haven’t seen before in the RPG livestream community. The cast and crew are all black and/or POC and it’s a space that this cast and crew have created for themselves in our larger community.

In non-eye related news, I have been seeing a wound care specialist to take care of some lingering injuries on my feet (some are diabetic related, some aren’t). Good news on this front as well, as two of the five injuries are completely healed. Bad news, the other three still haven’t completely healed. I have three visits a week to the outpatient clinic to get the dressings on my wounds changed. (this is also the hilarious story where I had surgery on my foot without any anesthetic, but it’s ok, i have polyneuropathy in both feet, so i have no functional nerve endings in said locations). Oh, and I was diagnosed with Iron deficient anemia.
Combined, these things have sort of sapped my will and desire to work on hobby related things, and i have not been working too hard to keep up with the gaming community as a result.
However, 2020 has some high spots coming. Starting in January, I will be putting together a hobby blog series on a new Warhammer 40,000 project I’m working on. It’ll be a complete army project for Warhammer from start to finish, featuring an army i have been interested in playing since I got into the game back in 2001. Also, we’re working on putting together the first official release of a Module for 5th edition Dungeons and Dragons. Into the Depths will feature art, a short adventure and a brand new monster. I hope to have it released around the 1st of the year, but it’s possible it may take a smidge longer while I wrangle the team together. If this release works out, it may be the start of a series of new adventures and projects for Dungeons and Dragons going forward.
That’s my brief update for what’s going on (other than the Mage the Ascension game i run on discord). I hope you all have a happy holiday season, and we’ll see what happens in 2020. Game on, Game Fans.
