Loot Pays Off on the First Day

So yesterday I mentioned a new website called Loot, which gives discounts on gaming materials. Well, what should I see in the ol' blogroll this morning, but "The Dying Earth RPG Super Bundle".

Sure enough, when I clicked on the link, I saw this:
  • The Dying Earth RPG
  • The Kaiin Players Guide
  • The Scaum Valley Gazetteer

And the price? $15 for the bundle (hard copies all).

It comes to $27 with shipping; I know from personal experience. Pretty good deal, I'd say! Keep this up, Loot, and you're going to have a pretty good future.

More Ogre Convention Madness

Being the glutton for punishment that I am, I have just signed up to host a game of Ogre Miniatures at NJCon, a fan-run up-and-comer miniatures convention held May 13-14 in Somerset, NJ. Here's hoping there are some Ogre fans planning on showing up!

Ogre Miniatures News

So, being the pest that I am, especially when I get into something, I asked the good folks over at Steve Jackson Games' online retail outlet Warehouse 23 what it would take to get the line of Ogre Miniatures back into production. And here was the answer:
"We're currently working on getting a new casting company to produce all of our Ogre Miniatures, once that's done we'll have a steady supply of minis, hopefully in time for the new 6th edition."
Oh, fraptious day! Callooh! Callay! My PanEuropean and Combine armies are nice, but I would definitely like to bump them up a peg. Plus I'm missing units like the Mark IV Ogre and the Dopplesoldner (not to mention the Mark I and Mark II).

Ogre minis have had a long and tortured history. Here's hoping this works out.
