G4, that gaming network that no one knew still existed, is teaming up with Dungeons and Dragons to broadcast D&D Live, an update to the annual campaign storyline. They are also threatening to get involved with Warhammer Live and Magic: The Gathering. Should be fun. Games Workshop is holding a live event to promote the progress of their animation projects. No details ahead of the event. That’s it. Hope we can see more than another set of trailers. The designer of Frosthaven, the stand-alone sequel to the successful Gloomhaven, posts a response to accussations of racial/cultural insensitivity and hires a cultural consultant. #frosthaven #G4 #warhammeranimation #dnd

Frosthaven, the sequel to Gloomhaven by Cephalofair Games, finished big on Kickstarter becoming the most funded boardgame ever. A well-deserved success. Kickstarter is laying off 45% of its staff due to the 35% decline in active projects on the platform and absolutely nothing to do with their recent unionization. Battlestar Galactica has a space battle miniatures game we will be trying. Critter Hug is a new series by some of the cast of Critical Role. A good thing for the hobby or just good old fashioned payola. Never Going Home by Wet Ink Games is a World War occult roleplaying game set during the Great War with art by Charles Ferguson-Avery. The game mechanics and the setting look excellent. Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History has an great series on World War One if you want some background for this game.  A YouTube channel, Filmento is worth checking out if you like movies. Into The Night, a Belgian Netflix series, may provide good inspiration for a roleplaying campaign.
