Name the new pulp game contest.

My draft for BoL-Pulp was just given the "green light". Now I need to find a better name than "BoL-Pulp".
So help me find a name for BoL-Pulp and win a hard-copy of it when it comes out. Send me your entries. contest ends when I find a name I like.

Witness my frustration while trying out names...

Tonight we gamed!

Mike is running us through our first Pathfinder game "Howl of the Carrion King."
It's set in the Pathfinder game world in an area known as Katapesh.
We are starting at 1st level (as it should be).

I have a 1/2 Orc Druidess named Attia
My oldest Minion Anthony has a Human Monk/Sorcerer named Bob.
Wade has a Dwarven cleric named Gorgam "Gnoll-Bane"
Jason has a Wizard named Daler Mendhi
and Karl is playing a Genie (using Gnome stats) named Pasha Kassim Al Mozak – Grand Vizier of the Fire Sultan.

The way they play it is that Pasha serves house Mehndi in hopes of one day earning his "true lamp" to one day be a full-fledged Djinn. Yes, certain accommodations have been made to make this work with the Pathfinder rules. But it does work- Mostly because the guys playing Daler and Pasha are up to the challenge.

Imagine if you will a couple of gamers busting out in song to this little tune on cue.

Its funny as hell and thats why we game, right??

Got Pulp?

If any of you are interested in having a Pulp RPG adventure appear in print drop me a line. I'm wrapping up BoL Pulp and I could use a few more short adventures. I cant pay anything of course but you will get credit and a free hard-copy of the book.  If you are interested drop me a private message at the Evil DM Productions Forum and we will discuss it further. Thanks guys.

Simon at BBG has the first draft of what I hope will be a set of rules to expand BoL into the realm of Pulp. I felt that by releasing The Lost World of Hador without a definitive set of BoL pulp rules would be like putting the cart before the horse. Once I get the rules into a shape thats ready for release I'll move to the next step which will be writing a few adventures and other setting flavored material (like finding a snappier title than BoL/Pulp).

Bittersweet Serenity

Every year I get my DVD collection of Firefly and Serenity and watch the whole saga. Today was that day. And as always it was a bittersweet experience for me. I love everything about this series from the haunting melody of the theme to the "Grrr, Arrgh" at the end. Its safe to say its my favorite TV show of all time. And as much as I enjoy watching it, I also get mad when I think of its too short life. When I think of all the crap that gets renewed season after season- ah there I go again. 

 I suppose all fans feel that way. I'm sure there are "Model Latina" fans out there campaigning for a new season who could care less for Captain Mal and his crew.
I can at least take comfort in the fact that I have the DVD set and the movie to console me (There are fans of the High Chaparral and Thundarr the Barbarian who don't even have that).

Have you guys seen this?

This was totally off my radar. Looks cool though. Once again I have no idea what the hell is being said but the pictures look cool. I'll leave it up y'all to research further. My Google-Fu is weak today.

Congratulations Saints!
Great game!

The qoute of the game was made by my 9 year old minion while watching Pete Townsend of the Who perform during the Halftime show-

"That old guy is a pretty good guitar player."

Smallville + JSA = I'm not a fan yet, but color me interested

While my allegiance to Marvel is pretty solid (except when they do something incredibly stupid like kill Captain America),  I have always been a fan of the Justice Society of America. My favorite DC hero is Wildcat. 

So when I heard they would be appearing in this seasons Smallville premiere I had to skip watching my Kings take a drubbing by Steve Nash and the Suns. I never watched Smallville before (I never particularly cared for Supes), but I caught on quick enough. I wasn't disappointed. 

Off the top the writers  killed off a couple of JSA'ers just to show they weren't fucking around (thank god neither one was Wildcat). The show was fun. There were a couple of pleasant surprises (Ma' Hunkle and Foxy Brown make appearances). I'm sure the hardcore fanboys will find fault (they always do), but all in all the minions and I enjoyed it and I got to give a block of instruction on who and what the JSA were to my boys. We will be watching in the coming weeks in hopes of more JSA action-and crossing for our fingers for a possible spin-off.

Advanced Edition Companion (Labyrinth Lord) - Goblinoid Games

Goblinoid Games has released the Advanced Edition Companion of Labyrinth Lord. This will run you $5.99 at RPGNow. You can get a free "no art" copy there as well, but I really hope those of you who are interested will pony up the six buck to get this. Doing projects like Labyrinth Lord takes a lot of time and effort. kind words and encouragement are great, but saying "thanks" with your wallet, shows real support.
