Ash Wednesday - Mia

I may be in the minority, but I enjoyed the Evil Dead remake. It had a different feel than the Evil Dead movies with Ash, but I enjoyed it. If you've not seen the movie, this post has spoilers. You've been warned.

This is my take of Mia after surviving her first encounter with the Evil Dead. She's now a one-handed promised one. She has nightmares of her encounters, but is trying to put her new lease on life and abilities to good use (namely kicking evil ass).

Free Baba Yaga's Hut - Limited Time

As some of you know, Fat Dragon Games has a new printable terrain kickstarter. You can go here to checkout their Wilderness Adventure gaming terrain project. Personally I like their work, I'm just not good with my hands when it come to cutting, folding, and gluing (which is funny considering I'm a youth services librarian).  The crew at Fat Dragon have a really cool promotional piece for the project. For a limited time you can snag a printable Baba Yaga Hut for free. I've hyperlinked the picture to get you to the DriveThruRPG page for it.

Succubus Sunday - Chantinelle

Chantinelle (or Ellie) is a character from the Hellblazer comics. She was s succubus who thought the ultimate thrill would be to seduce an angel. Ultimately lust turned to love and the pair conceived a child.

DCC? Sounds Good to Me.

Two weeks ago I picked up three new Dungeon Crawl Classics adventures from Dungeon Dwellers in Portsmouth, Ohio.

DCC #81: The One Who Watches Below is the winner of Goodman Games 2012 Mystery Dungeon contest. It's a 1st level adventure that involves mystical eyeballs, curses, and a confrontation with an ancient power. This adventure is one of the most creative I've read in a long time.

DCC # 78: Fate's Fell Hand is another really creative 2nd level adventure. The characters are sucked into a pocket plane and forced to take part in a magical duel between three archmages. There's a fun tarot vibe to the adventure.

DCC #71: The 13th Skull is a 4th level adventure written by the big guy himself, Joseph Goodman. It's a classic adventure that probably doesn't have a happy ending. There's also a 2nd level one shot. I particularly liked the one shot because it has succubus stats.

The last DCC thing I wanted to mention is I've found a perfect mini for the Chained Coffin. DCC adventures don't need minis, but I thought it'd be fun to use them in a few instances. The Deathgrasp Sarcophogus from Demonweb D&D miniatures set is perfect.

Maybe one of these days I'll get to run some DCC. I've thought about posting something on the game boards at a few local shops.

Ash Wednesday - Tool Man Attachments

For today's Ash Wednesday I've decided to present two new attachments for those with the Tool Man quality. These are pretty powerful and should not be added to a game lightly.

Iron Man Gauntlet
In the fan made Army of Darkness vs Marvel Zombies video (which can be found here) Ash gets his most powerful prosthetic to date, Iron Man's gauntlet.

Use Gung-fu to make ranged attacks with the gauntlet. The blasts do 40 damage and ignore 20 points of armor.  When used to make melee attacks the wielder's strength is considered to be 5 higher.

Bionic Commando Attachment
Created to arm the bionic commandos of Earth's future, this cybernetic hand is multipurpose. Attached to a cable, the hand can be launched 10 feet from the owner. While it can't be used to make effective punch attacks, it can be used to grapple opponents at a distance. In addition it allows the wielder to swing like Tarzan or Spider-Man.

art Dave did for one of my posts
Last month Zak from Playing D&D With Pornstars held a contest. The person that came up with the coolest app/toy earned a signed copy of A Red and Pleasant Land. The winners were announced in this post. One of those winners is a friend and gaming buddy, David Coppoletti. You can see his submission here.

Dave is a great guy and a very creative dude. My friends and I can vouch for him, he's a fantastic gamemaster. He's working on a Dungeon Crawl Classics adventure that I believe he'd like to release this year. I feel honored that he's asked me to help stat some of the monsters.

So umm... congrats Dave!
