Check out the Hottest Products from Avalon Games this August!

I am off on my yearly pilgrimage to the Pennsic War, indeed, in one of the biggest heatwaves of the year. When operating your campaign, don’t forget that your party is often made up of characters out of their native element; in other words, likely not used to the climate in which they are currently traveling. All it takes is a few degrees—a cold snap or a heat wave—to physically and mentally...

[Avalon Games] Prepare for Battle with New Products in June!

Battle Maneuvers. I’ve been in a medieval reenactment society that does heavy weapons combat and I have to say that everyone has their favorite melee and tournament maneuvers.    So should the GM, whether it’s in hand-to-hand or ship-to-ship. Come up with about a half-dozen flying maneuvers or strikes for each of your major NPCs and keep them on file. Come up with another half-dozen counters...

[Avalon Games] May is the Month to Enjoy new Products!

May Day! Dance among the tulips! Roll in the buttercups! Roll for damage! Well, you never know when an allergy will show up. Besides, buttercups were once used by clever beggars who wanted to add more sores on themselves—they cause pustules and blisters. They would do it to themselves or, more often, to the children they were exploiting. In any event, springtime is when the sap is rising, trees are...

Avalon Games’ Releases for April

I was thinking about tricky places I’ve visited. One of the most awesome had a semi-extra floor on the second floor. It was a candy-packaging factory and the second floor was mostly storage but they put the breakroom there on a platform of sorts with a small set of stairs to enter. The other side opened directly into the full building-height staircase. In other words, the building’s staircase...

Don’t you wish you had the super-power to destroy the universe… so long as you could remake it back the way it was an instant later? Maybe it’s just me.

Avalon Games: Kicking into High Gear for November

Very important: Avalon Games is having a year-ending sale starting on THANKSGIVING and continuing until the end of the year. That’s 25% off everything. Now that we have that out of the way, in the vein of being prepared, this month I suggest a specialized treasure chart for your team, regardless of the setting. Often people who use random rolls for finding treasure end up regretting what their players...

Avalon Games: Harvest Awesome New Products in October!

My tip for this month is to create, ahead of time, three random friendly NPCs before any game. Make them in-depth, but harmless or even useful people that the team will over time appreciate knowing. The little old lady at the end of the hall that always makes them cookies because one of them reminds her of her son, a gentleman grocer/smith that maintains camaraderie with the group because he remembers...

[Avalon Games] Places to go, Games to buy in August!

I dunno about you, but I’m off to Pennsic again so you’re getting Avalon Games’ monthly come-uppings a week early! So what am I doing at the world’s biggest medieval reenactment? I’m running a LARP again! Well, actually it’s an assassins/spies game where they have to follow clues and kill each other until someone finds the prize. I’m also teaching classes on how our ancestors used poisons...

Avalon Games, This Month’s Previews

‘Tis the month when all the kids get out of school and wreak havoc on everything. Now, it’s always encouraging to get them into a game, but there are those kids who’d rather eat a bug than do anything that you enjoy. So we can all agree that children, especially in groups, can be evil. Which can be a great plot point. You can use a gaggle of them as a gang of thieves a group of mutant aliens little...

[Avalon Games] It’s Rainin’ Games in April!

Holy Moly, Avalon Games has gone around the bend to make your Spring Break filled with gaming. However, between holidays, events, and standardized testing, I’m swamped, so my weak advice this month is NEVER introduce standardized testing in your games. Here’s this month’s releases. *** Avalon Models, “A” Frame Gangsters AVG4700-A-21 $1.50 A collection of 10 “A” Frame Paper Models.  This...

[Avalon Games] Do you Feel Lucky in March?

Well, you should. This great team put together a ton of stuff this month. In fact, they do this every month. Because they’re awesome. Speaking of luck, does your game have a Luck stat? If so, who rolls it? You see, whenever I’ve worked as a GM I’ve always had a kind of Luck stat where some PCs are just luckier than others. However, I don’t think the player should roll it; after all, the player...

[Avalon Games] It’s LOVE-time with New Releases

February is a pretty short month. So how do you handle time in your gaming system? The standard agreement is that time goes as fast as the playing group desires it to go, with battles and high-action sequences broken down into rounds (about 3 seconds) in order to establish what everyone’s doing. It works well for most people and skips the boring parts, even though that “ellipses” of time still...
