pic1173341_t[1]Since its release, Eclipse has seen a lot of success. It’s *very* highly regarded by people who play it and the digital version of the game is truly superb, it has to be said.

Of course it’s not a game for everyone. It’s rules heavy, long and very, very deep with tons of things to do.

After all, conquering a galaxy is no easy feat, is it?

In this podcast episode we’re changing the format a bit and, instead of reviewing a game we haven’t played before, we review a game that’s one of the favourite games of one of the hosts.

Hope you enjoy the show!

131611[1]Bedrock Games is happy to announce the PDF release of Sertorius, a fantasy RPG of powerful spell casters in an ancient world of city states and empires. 

Webpage: http://www.bedrockgames.net/untitled1.html

From the back: 

BLOOD OF A GOD

Fourteen hundred years ago, the ogre king killed his own god, Senga, with a sword carved from the spine of the snake goddess. The pieces of Senga’s sundered spirit washed over the world like rain and were reborn as the Sertori, living incarnations of his power.

You are a Sertori: a powerful sorcerer who can bind men’s minds with a word or bring down storms of fire on your foes. You live in an ancient world, ruled by monarchs and oligarchies, in search of your destiny, attracting throngs of followers and circles of believers. As your following grows, so does your power. In time, you may rival the gods, or be worshipped as one. 

BODY OF FLESH

But the power you wield is dangerous and the world you inhabit treacherous. Even as your magic destroys your enemies, it can also warp your own body and mind. Misuse of this power transforms you into an abomination or a haunting presence. The faith of your followers can grow dark as well, and even your most trusted disciples may betray you. Beyond these threats you face greater dangers from unearthly creatures and cults who despise the Sertori, hunting them down to absorb their divine powers. The gods themselves may be your enemies. 

Sertorius is available from:

Infestation_TitleThird Eye Games is excited to announce our newest family-friendly RPG, Infestation: a Game of Bugs and Heroes. Infestation is the third game to use the company’s Pip System, previously used for Mermaid Adventures and Camp Myth: The RPG.

In Infestation, players take on the role of various bugs and battle for control over This House, the most disgusting and filthy domicile on the block. Every room, from Cabinet City (the Kitchen) to The Stinker (the Bathroom), is a treasure trove of garbage and filth. If you’re part of the ruling species you may get to take your pick of the treasure, otherwise you’ll need to use your instincts to take what you can.

Players may choose from twelve bug races, including ants, bed bugs, fleas, locusts, spiders, roaches, and more. Each bug has its own unique Qualities which make it well-suited to life in This House, and several colonies seek out Bug Magic to make up for abilities they don’t already possess. They’ll need to stay on their feet (all six or more of them) and watch out for household hazards, but if they’re brave enough they may just find all of the pieces of junk they need to prove they are the best.

Be on the lookout for a Kickstarter very soon. We hope to fund and get this game ready for a quick release at GenCon 2014!
