Friday Knight News – Gaming Edition: 9-MAR-2012

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of Friday finally arriving! Unfortunately at my house, that also means that the Spring season of soccer is gonig to start and I’m going to be spending lots of time on a soccer field very soon… But you’re not here to read about my soccer woes!

We had a good week here at Game Knight Reviews, with three reviews (Shotgun Diaries, BP1: The Hidden Current, BP2: The Manor of Deceit) , an article about my use of social media, an article about tools for taking your gaming digital over the weekend, and today’s news.

Next week hopefully we’ll have at least a couple of reviews, possibly an interview, an opinion column, and who knows what else!

Now… On to the links! If you have any thoughts after reading any of these posts you’d like to share, I’d ask that you leave comments on the posts themselves. They deserve the feedback folks. 🙂

  • Looking for some
    apps as a DM/GM? Melanie Gray this week did a guest post at Campaign Mastery offering a list of six apps for Android, iOS, and Blackberry devices that might make your life easier. I might have to look for the DiceShaker D&D app just for fun!
  • Or maybe you want some examples of different writing systems so you can create your own for your game? Omniglot is the place to go!
  • Don’t know if you saw the announcement about the Outerra Engine this week, but I’m wondering if some enterprising game designer could use it to allow fly-bys of worlds like Forgotten Realms, the world of Game of Thrones, Dune, and many many more. 3D rendering of terrain would offer an intriguing view of these imaginary places, wouldn’t it?
  • If you’re looking for “instant town, just click button,” look no further than the Town Generator @ This thing is customizable up the wazoo and generates plenty of crunch to explore in an instant!
  • Do you use MapTool? Are you looking at playing the new Marvel Heroic Roleplaying RPG? The Online DM has a new framework in place to merge the two! A work in progress, but good news for online gamers looking to play with the new system.

That’s it for this week on the news front. If you want a bit more, check out the Weekly Roundup at Roving Band of Misfits, the Weekly Assembly from Gamer Assembly, and Chris Hackler’s “What’s Up With D&D?” at ENWorld. There’s definitely plenty of news go go around!

I hope everybody has a great weekend!

As always, if you feel I missed something (and it would be impossible NOT to), drop me a quick note via the contact page or drop me an e-mail at news(at)gameknightreviews(dot)com and I’ll add it to the list for next week!
