Wellstone City Municipal Airport

Wellstone City grew up too quickly to hold a large airport; by the time air travel was hitting its high point in the 30’s, there just wasn’t room for a full-scale airport on the island. A smaller strip was added to the Spanish Quarter in 1948. There was talk of putting one in close to the Waterfront when the hurricane of 1953 destroyed half of the Warrens, but it was decided that there were too many other large airports within a short distance and it was decided to rely on the highways and boats.

Today, however, the Wellstone City Municipal Airport is a hub of smaller jets and turbo-prop airplanes. It largely services commuter flights and freight, but there is a large number of private planes as well as helicopters that are serviced out of the airport.

Rock and Role: The Fighter, Part 2

Last week we touched on the different types of fighters that exist in the game environment, boiling them down to the attributes that suit them best. Last week I went over the classic physical attributes of Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution. This week I’ll be hitting the lesser-used attributes of Intelligence, Wisdom, and Charisma.

There might be some who consider these attributes to be a little more esoteric when it comes to your fighters. A lot of us will use these as our dump stats, and when we roll a great set of attributes…but it has an 8 in it…we use one of these three for that 8. Usually, it’s Charisma, and we justify it by the fighter being rough around the edges and scarred from years of combat. That makes solid sense, as does the fighter who fights because he’s big on brawn and little in the brains department, or an otherwise smart character who has just had his bell rung too many times and it’s affecting his IQ.

Year of the Gamer! (But what does that mean?)

Year of the gamer is simply put, a celebration of the gamer. We want to use this year as an opportunity to celebrate all things gaming, specifically tabletop but including board games, video games, really anything that brings one to identify themselves as a gamer. Our hope is that other publishers jump on board with us, gaming communities, cons, stores, really anyone involved and get their fans excited about this as well and really make it an entirely gaming community based effort.

We want the Gamers to really enjoy this year and we have a number of projects designed to do just that.

A Stitched in Time has been released!

You are a part of Bureau 8, a secret branch of the FBI that investigates the cases that the FBI can’t. Last night, one of the Bureau’s contacts, a mortician, called into the field office saying he has something that needs to be seen. After arriving, you see what he means; he has a guy on the slab with a double arm transplant and a pocket full of clues. You are to investigate what’s going on, solve the problem, come back safe, but above all, keep it quiet!

Rock and Role: The Fighter

Fighters come in all shapes and sizes, but many of you have an iconic fighter that just came to mind when you read that word. For some of you, it’s a massive warrior in gothic plate mail, for others it could be a swashbuckler that is almost more rogue than fighter, others might have seen a lean brawler, and still others might have seen a mountain of muscle that makes pro-wrestlers look like 10-year-olds. Those are just the melee guys; that’s not even touching ranged fighters with bows, guns, or throwing weapons, and it doesn’t get into every other variant imaginable.

All of them are fighters; all of them have the job of being the damage-dealing brutalizers of the battlefield. However, each of them have a certain panache with how they do that, and that it largely determined by their statistics and attributes, not to mention the player’s playing style. I’ll run down a few of these; and I’m sticking with the old-school stats and not going into prestige classes or other specializations; just going through the list to see what role playing does for our simple fighter.

Today is all about the physical fighters.

We weren’t planning on doing this yet, but we’ve had so much response from so many of you that we decided to dive right in! You can get your very own Year of the Gamer t-shirt and show your gamer pride all year long! We have started a pre-order sale at Custom Ink, one of the best t-shirt printers available, and we have chosen to go with a 50/50 cotton/polyester shirt for its durability, the way it holds the image, and its ease of care.

Happy Friday!

Hey, we’ve got a lot going on, we’re going to have some releases coming up very soon, but we have something even more amazing than that this week. Since it’s the start of the new year, we’re introducing a new concept for 2014, all because of the positioning of the dice…
