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, 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!

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...
