News from Around the Net: 25-NOV-2011

Happy Black Friday to those of you in the U.S. Those of us not hitting the malls and shopping centers are most likely still recovering from our turkey-induced comas. 🙂

I have to say that for Thanksgiving this year, I have to say I’m very thankful not only for the fact that I’m back gaming semi-regularly this year, but that I’ve had the opportunity to interact with some truly amazing individuals over the Internet over the last year. Gamers, publishers, artists… everyone in this hobby has been very kind to Game Knight Reviews since it launched back in late 2010.

If you’re looking for a few gift suggestions from The Gassy Gnoll for the gamers in your life, here’s a few…

  • For inspiration, I definitely recommend Masks and Eureka from Engine Publishing. You can’t beat the nearly infinite number of combinations available in these books for plots & NPCs to fill any adventure you can think of.
  • Along the same lines the Adventure Creation Handbook from Cherie “Jade” Arbuckle and fame is another awesome resource for anybody wanting to construct great adventures for a gaming group.
  • For a fantasy adventure, check out the Breaking of Forstor Nagar from Rite Publishing. Creepy. Challenging. Awesome.
  • And for a combination of inspiration and adventure, you can’t go wrong with any issue of Kobold Quarterly or a subscription.

For other suggestions, check out the 2011 Dice Hate Me Holiday Gift Guide, the 40 tabletop gaming gifts list from Ben Gerber at Troll in the Corner, …

And now that the shopping’s done – let’s dive into the week’s news, shall we?
