I picked up Mythic Constantinople from Design Mechanism, the set of large maps and the scenario Life's Long Consequences.

Yes, this printed edition looks better with black ink on white paper. Yet the original earlier version of white text on black backgrounds when read on digital devices like the Apple iPad or Android tablet, makes for an excellent LCARS type computer software interface as seen on Star Trek The Next Generation TV Series.

I've just spent my WWC Cold War refund voucher buying some of the soon to be out of print/licence C7 books.

Curse of Ninevah & the related Journals and 'Cards from the Smoke' (items I didn't back physically in the KS)
World War Cthulhu: Their Darkest Hour
World War Cthulhu: London (I had the PDF...)
World War Cthulhu: SOE

Okay, I spent more than the voucher ;-)

And now the postman came knocking.

It looks kind of fun.

(Still posting as I like UKRP and I'm hoping the Tavern gets a lifeboat).

I've just used my Cold War KS voucher to secure a copy of Oaths Of The Riddermark. I really must run a game of ToR next year but it's going to be tough.

I was going to get that originally and then I got distracted.

This arrived for me from a bookshop in Cheshire. It purports to be a journal from a Expedition that there seems to be no record of. If the contents are true, there is something dangerous in the ruins on Nineveh.

Suddenly remembered about the vouchers from ShaCon for Pinnacle so picked up a few Lankhmar PDFs: Lankhmar: City of Thieves; Lankhmar: Savage Tales of Nehwon; and Lankhmar: Savage Tales of the Thieves' Guild.

Another Kickstarter arrives. Now the circle is complete.

Just done exactly the same as your post served as a reminder about the vouchers.

The postman was somewhat overloaded this morning. I nearly felt sorry for him.

I need to make time to read all the WWC Cold War material, on a skim it looks great.

Resistance was futile

Having played in Shanes excellent Star Trek Adventures at Contingency, I used my bring and buy profits and a Xmas voucher for the FLGS to purchase core rules and 2 dice sets!

Just splurged on the expansions for the boardgame Scythe. This game is not good for me - the quality and nature of the pieces speaks to my must have all the pretties nature. Probably just as well there's only supposed to be three expansions. The last, a proposed campaign module, has certainly caught my attention too...

Picked this up at Games Crusade, a rather nice game store that’s opened up opposite the Theatre in Harrogate.

The boys (11/7) really like it. I suspect it works better with higher player numbers, but it’s a nice and simple fun filler.
