Mutant: Mechatron is on the resist pile. It looks gorgeous, I like the theme, but fear that it might be too obscure for my players to pick up on.

Midgard - Looks gorgeous, and its one that constantly pops up on my radar because its Kobold's house setting (and they are a prolific company) - my resistance is increased because I don't understand the KS structure with its multiple pledge levels.

The reissued SLA industries - lovely hardcover sitting in Travelling Man Manchester as I type. But its the same dark dark game that I passed on in the 90s ;)

I won't resist for very long...

May as well be on the splurge thread. Yet more fantastic quality gaming for Symbaroum.

I've not resisted this at all - I was straight in and splurged .... :-)

Nice to see the "pre-order" for this doing so well. :wink:

Make that £74 once you factor in VAT in Finland as well! The excerpts look great but I'm feeling that devaluation in the pound post Brexit vote...

Saw Blue Rose in Travelling Man and it is only time before I succumb. Loved the first edition but wanted a little more ambiguity in the setting and the reviews say they have delivered all this with a new take on the AGE system that models the setting magic. I do like the idea of morally clear settings for a while.

I'm resisting upgrading my camera which is OT, but I'm also resisting a physical copy of Swordfish Isles.

I was really looking forward to this, but then the price :shock:

I still probably will, but just stick to the core book. Jeez....

I'm sure the minis are lovely, and I'm not really arguing with their price point, but they're definitely not work £160 to me so the amazing Borg box is out.

Core book and the PDF of the others is probably all I need!

I am resisting switching camera kits from Panasonic micro 4/3 to Fuji X-pro 2, the camera Leica would make if they made affordable cameras.

I failed the resistance roll to upgrade my Panasonic micro 4/3 kit to newer versions last week...
