Friday Knight News – Triskaidekaphobic Gaming Edition: 13-APR-2012

Happy Friday the 13th, everybody! That’s right – a haunted day and me without my hockey mask and machete… What does it have to do with gaming? Nothing! As far as I’m concerned, it’s just another Friday. Regardless of any bad luck, ladders or black cats in your path I hope you enjoy it… We won’t have another one until July!

With the triskaidekaphobia behind us, let’s move on to why you’re really here… Links! News! All manner of interesting posts from across the web!

But before that I just want everybody to say hi to Andrew Armstrong, the new columnist here at Game Knight Reviews. He joins Robert Oglodzinksi (Ancient Scroll) and Creighton Broadhurst (Raging Swan Press) as a regular contributor this week. And his first post was all about the poor, misunderstood Cleric in D&D. Yes, Clerics can do a whole lot more than just heal the rest of the group!!

On that note… Off to the news!!

Food for Thought

Games and Gaming

Publisher News

Kickstarter News

(There are so many cool projects at Kickstarter these days I figure they need their own section! And it has to kick off with John Kovalic’s Dork Tower from this week that felt all too familiar to me… I *may* have been a bit crazy with funding projects last month…)



  • Looking for a quick way to inspire some fantasy world history? The Timeline Generator @ handles that quite nicely. Set a few properties (name, start year, number of years of history, and the number of events per year and cut it loose… You get fun text like “In the year 460, it is written that a horrible earthquake shook the land and there was a military campaign launched to regain lost territory…” Now why was that territory lost I wonder?
  • Or maybe you’re looking for a way to organize your 4E information online… Power2ool has you covered with a virtual desktop design you can use for many things!
  • Looking for an integrated system for gaming over Google+ Hangouts? Check out Tabletop Forge while it’s still in beta. I’ve heard good things, but haven’t had a chance to give it a go yet myself. Anybody tried it yet?


(I’m also going to start sticking in a list of links to other articles you might want to check out…)

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, Chris Hackler’s “What’s Up With D&D?” at ENWorld, and BryanMD posted a great list of cool stuff at Intwischa as well. 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!
