TerraScapes: Caves and Grottos - Redux - Tabletop Terrain

No Comments

TerraScapes is a Nonlinear Modular 3d Terrain System for both roleplaying and wargaming!

"With the full range of double sided modular tiles, you can quickly create ultra-realistic cavern scenarios for any of your spelunking adventures! If you've ever found yourself in a cave, you know how under represented they are in the games that we love to play. There is nothing linear about spelunking and caverns aren't flat! Caves are twisted sections of open air encased by cool moist rocky walls. That's why I've coined this terrain as a Nonlinear Modular Terrain System, and it's a new way of dressing your Tabletop with functional, dynamic terrain for all your Tabletop RPG's!"

Hero's Crossing

No Comments

A city building, resource management board game set in a classic video game RPG world and realized in stunning pixel art.

Monsters and madmen are everywhere. Glory awaits the stalwart heroes who would stand against the forces of evil.

You’re not one of those heroes.

You’re the people behind the heroes - the shopkeepers and the smithies and the potion brewers who outfit adventurers with the gear necessary to undertake their quests.

Crokinole | Wood tabletop game with built-in chip storage

No Comments

Great tabletop boardgame to enjoy with friends or family. Crokinole has been a social centerpiece in Canada as long as it has existed.

Everything is contained in the board. No need for auxiliary score keepers, crokinole chip storage, or hanging hardware. The score keepers are located in the ditch and use metal pegs (aluminum/brass/black steel cribbage pegs) to count by 5 to 100. On the back, the board has 2 channels that store 12 black and 12 clear crokinole chips. They use a spring loaded system to keep them from falling out regardless of the direction that the board is turned. At the top of the back cutout is a small indent. The indent mates to a standard screw for hanging on the wall. The indent is self leveling so even after a late night crokinole social, the board can hang pretty (please ensure due diligence is practiced to find a stud).

No Comments

A Robust set of Bocage style hedges suitable for both 20mm and 28mm scale.

This set has been designed for both 20mm and 28mm scales, it's huge for 20mm and sizeable for the latter. The only not perfectly suitable cross scale piece is the gate piece, if you're pledging for 20mm you can swap this out for a similar sized medium piece.

Here's a 28mm Hetzer next to a long piece, with some figures hiding.

Praxis: Black Monk

No Comments

Five tabletop roleplaying games set in the twisted world of the immortal and unknowable black monk, who offers salvation… at a price.

The Black Monk is a series of five games set in a strange fantasy world where time means nothing anymore. Each game is set in a unique part of a desolate world, with strange characters passing the time until the Black Monk visits.

In between these visits, the character's lives are interrupted by sometimes trivial and other times confusing events. Everything seems to fit together like an elongated jigsaw puzzle, but no one can see the starter pieces stretching across the horizon.

But they don’t complain. There is always more work. The village needs workers.

Then one evening, the sun stayed in the sky all day. When there should have been night, the sun remained. And now it feels as though it’s been years since the Black Monk came. But perhaps it was yesterday. Nothing is right…

Is that blood?

A collection of ruined buildings cast from Hirst Arts assets. Perfect for tabletop RPGs and Wargames! Starting at only $25!

Nord Games is proud to announce a new line of miniature terrain sets designed for tabletop RPGs and war games. Using assets from Hirst Arts, we are creating a range of master molds to cast solid plaster pieces.

We are using Merlin's Magic plaster in order to achieve a top quality product while still keeping prices low when compared to similar resin products. Both painted and unpainted sets are available, as well as add ons and Kickstarter exclusive models which will be unlocked through stretch goals. Thank you for checking out the project, please share it with your friends and, as always, happy gaming!

Medieval

No Comments

Wage war, unleash the plague, excommunicate the unworthy, and drive back the Mongol hordes in this strategy board game.

Who Should Get Medieval?

Anyone who likes 90 minutes of battle, backstabbing, plagues, and Mongol hordes. Medieval is for 3 to 5 players with stretch goals that extend the action to 2-player and 6-player games, and solitaire too.

Provinces and regions will fall, along with entire kingdoms, as you vie for control of the medieval world. But you’re not alone. Other cabals forge plots of their own and wage shadow wars against you, with armies and navies, assassinations and papal schemes, heretics and spies.

Throw in a couple of plagues and claims of heresy, plus a Mongol invasion to end the game, and you’ve got yourself an evening.

Battleline Heroes World War 2 Tabletop Role Playing Game

No Comments

Fast Action, exceptionally lethal RPG set in World War II with quick character creation and an easy to learn modern system.

Batlleline Heroes is a tabletop RPG set during the ravages of World War II. The setting is deep and immersive allowing roleplay during any phase of the war, from whatever vantage point you desire to play. Most players will choose to play active duty military or organized partisans in occupied territories, but there are character classes available for police, politicians, special ops, and even a few for civilians!

The combat system is fast and easy to learn with classes providing "perks" that operate as skills, and rules for training in cross-class perks at higher levels. The weaponry in the game is authentically researched, and as it was in real life, it is incredibly lethal. In fact, the wise player will exercise extreme caution before lunging into battle - but will not hesitate when the time comes for action.

Noggin The Nog - The Miniatures!

No Comments

A project to bring life to Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate's creations as metal miniatures suitable for collecting & gaming.

In the lands of the North, where the Black Rocks stand guard against the cold sea, in the dark night that is very long the Men of the Northlands sit by their great log fires and they tell a tale... and this tale is one of bringing the works of Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate to life in the form of metal miniatures suitable for both collecting and gaming.

Peter Firmin and Daniel Postgate, Oliver's son, have given their licensed blessing to this project. Every miniature produced will be lovingly packaged in the heart of the lead belt, otherwise known as Nottingham, and then shipped to all backers. There are many more miniatures in the offing provided funding is reached which will encourage me to keep going....and to ensure my bank manager doesn't rue the day I walked through his door a few months back with a tiny acorn of an idea.....

The 16 initial sculpts, by the awfully talented Martin Buck, have already been mastered by the also talented hands of another dedicated Noggin fan, Peter Brown of The Mouldmaker. Each miniature is on a 20mm round base (although these have shrunk slightly in the moulding process) and average about 30mm in height.

Peter Firmin has been actively involved in the consultation, refinement and approval of the final figures after all, they are his creation! Daniel Postgate, Oliver's son, is of course involved in the project for Smallfilms.

But instead of shell inlaid in a wooden board, the fish, turtles, mountain goats and stars are etched in copper on fiberglass. These symbols are all related to Enki, the Sumerian God of Water.

The boards are cut into the unique arrangement of twenty squares with computer controlled routers. Paired with custom molded black and white dice and melamine stones, the game of WatUR is a beautiful and durable game that will last a lifetime.

Perdition's Mouth - Revised Edition

No Comments

A gritty, ruthless, Euro-style, co-op dungeon crawl, praised for its replayability and unique gameplay by players of the 1st edition

This is not your typical dungeon crawl. Unique and intuitive Euro-style mechanics combined with strong co-operation and a dark and deeply immersive theme put Perdition’s Mouth in its own category. It combines the tactical elements seen in blockbusters such as Gloomhaven, the struggle to survive from Posthuman, and the awesome dungeon crawling of Descent.

No dice? Rondels? No gamemaster? Hand management? Crucial cooperation? All in a dungeon crawl? Yes! Keep reading and see...

The game designers of Perdition's Mouth: Abyssal Rift (Timo Multamäki, Thomas Klausner and Kevin Wilson) set out to implement a new kind of dungeon crawl. One that embraces the European school of game design with clever mechanisms which emphasizes strategy and minimizing luck. Cooperation, planning and the enemy response deck eliminate the need for chucking dice, creating a tense combat environment with meaningful decisions! The rondels provide another tactical layer, including the enemy’s devious and challenging AI.

Richard Garfield's Carnival of Monsters

No Comments

This fast-playing card-drafting game challenges 2 to 5 players to hunt and collect the most dangerous monsters of myth and legend.

Richard Garfield’s Carnival of Monsters combines card drafting and set collecting for a game experience that is at once familiar and refreshingly new. 2 to 5 players begin with a small number of Lands, which they can use to play Monsters. At the beginning of each of the game’s four Seasons, each player is dealt eight cards—which can include more Lands, Monsters, or other cards they might be able to use to improve their carnival. A normal game takes around 45 minutes and we suggest players to be age 10 or older.

At the same time, all players choose one card to keep, passing the rest to their neighbor. You can play your chosen card immediately, or pay one coin to save it for later. Of course, if you can’t play it now, you’ll have to pay to keep it!

Collecting more Land cards allows you to play more and bigger Monsters.

Playing Monsters is the key to scoring points: Every Monster is worth points at the end of the game, and if you play the right kind of Monster in the right Season, you can earn more points and coins during the game.

Staff cards provide a permanent bonus for your carnival, from new ways to earn coins, to Hunters that can protect you from dangerous Monsters!

Events give you a one-time boost.

Secret Goals are kept hidden until the end of the game, when they add surprise points to your score!

Thanks for the service! Please add RPE Miniature’s Wizard Conclave to the list. $30 for 10+ metal miniatures. I backed the KS for Frostgrave-compatible figures: An academic hireling that can be used as an apprentice, and an animated broom which could be used as a construct!
