D6G Ep 94: 2011 Best Moments & Mini Mini Reviews: Warmachine Wrath, Warhammer Badlands, & Mercs

In episode 94 the third chair is filled by Owen Staton. Owen Staton is a Welsh Storyteller, actor and writer who has been a Gamer for 28 years. He has been a long time contributor to the D6 Generation through his segments "Words from Wales."  Recently he  published a CD of his own Stories from Welsh folklore called "Tales from the New Inn". He is handsome in a rugged sort of way and has a morbid fear of Taxidermy.

It's been awhile since we disucess miniature games so we decided to discuss three new miniature releases that have been active in our local gaming groups.  Russ discusses his thoughts on Warmachine Wrath (with a few comments on Hordes Domination), Owen shares his thoughts on the Warhammer Fantsay Battles campaign book "Badlands" and Craig gives us his thoughts after a couple plays of the new miniature war game Mercs.

But first the crew discusses their top gaming related moments of 2011.

D6G Ep 93: Perils of Publishing and Game of Thrones Detailed Review

In episode 93 the third chair is filled by Stephen Buonocore. Stephen is the co-owner of Stronghold Games, which was formed only 2 years ago, but has already made a big impact in the hobby game industry by publishing great reprints (such as “Survive!” and “Outpost”) as well as great new game designs (such as “Panic Station” and “Core Worlds”).

Fantasy Flight has recently re-release A Game of Thrones, the board game in a new 2nd edition.  Is it better than the original?  What has changed? 

But first, with Stephen on the show we just had to ask, what are the Perils of Publishing?  How does a game go from idea to a pretty box on a store shelf.

D6G Ep 83: Wyrd Interivew, Spartan Games Interview, Terraclips & Dystopian Wars on Land

In this D6G megasode we manage to interview the men behind two of the hotest up-and-coming miniature gaming companies.

Up first Eric Johns from Wyrd Miniatures brings us up to date on what's happening with Malifaux and beyond.  What can we expect from the new rule book, what kind of hotness will be at GenCon, what's the deal with Puppet Wars, and just how cool is all that new Terraclips terrain anyway?

Later Neil Fawcett from Spartan Games is on the show.  We ask him what's going on with all three lines of Spartan products: Uncharted Seas, Firestorm Armada, and Dystopian Wars.  They've also got a lot of new hotness coming to Gencon 2011 and Neil isn't shy about telling you exactly what it is.  

But we're not done with Spartan Games once Neil hangs up.  We then dive into the new land units for Dystopain Wars.  How does the game play on land?

As if all that wasn't enough, we announce the winners of the Wargamma haiku contest and don't miss a special 'extended edition' of Words from Wales... megasode indeed!

The mulling mechanics segment returns!  This time we examine "What Makes a Euro?"  The lines seem to be blurring these days.  Can Craig, Raef, and Russ clear things up?  Or will they just make it even more confusing?

RPG Song Contest Finalists

The following are the contest finalists for the "RPG Song"  mentioned in Episode 80.

1.   Dusty Boots by Booka Shuade- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lejIbFnNcgk

I would choose this song for the RPG Deadlands because it has strong Western influences, it has slightly creepy-horror undertones and for some reason it really sounds Steampunky as well. As an added bonus it sounds super cool and makes me think of cowboys just strutting through some lonely, haunted Burg just looking for a fight. I think it perfectly suits Deadlands and should inspire people to make some great zombie-shooting Deadlands campaigns set in the Dusty old Wild West.

George K

___________________

2.   Hi guys!

Thanks for a fantastic show! :-)

My choice is:

Nothing To Fear by Chris Rea

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWHGqXY5jCk

I would use it in a World of Darkness - Hunter: The Vigil campaign, whereby the starting premise would be that a loved one of one of the player characters vanished under mysterious circumstances, and the trail leads the group to the Middle-East, including Istanbul and of course some ancient archaelogical site in the desert.

Best regards,

Jeroen V

The Netherlands

3.   pirates of the Caribbean theme music by Hans Zimmer

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ttQjm-8OITE&feature=related

this music would probably for a game of rouge trader.I do not think that this is a very generic but very cool song to be listening to when thinking of any scenario. I always imagine this music playing when the engines kick in and the ship leaves a planet with its rouge trader at the bridge hands on hips with a bit of a grin with the rest of the party standing behind him.

on an off topic note I would rely appreciate if you could ask the listeners if there are any willing 40k role players in the Mansfield UK area who are willing to teach a me how to play. they can contact by private messaging me on Dakka Dakka under the user name sarge stokes. Thanks

from Jakob

________________________________

4.  D6 Generation,

I will nominate “Church of the Machine” by Symphony X (off the album Twilight in Olympus). I have often thought of creating an adventure with this song as inspiration. I would probably set it in a D&D-type universe, but I think it could be an adventure seed for a Sci-Fi setting just as well.

Here’s a link: http://youtu.be/eOkP706JaV8

Adventure Synopsis:

Strange half-animal, half-machine monstrosities are plaguing the countryside. The heroes (sic) must find and destroy the source of these twisted creatures. They must locate the portal to the Platinum Maze and then navigate the strange shifting maze where time and space bend and twist. At the center of the Maze is the Twilight Cathedral, which the adventurers must infiltrate or assault. After finding the source of the monsters, it must be destroyed.

As a D&D-type adventure, the source would probably be a power-hungry warlock (are there really any other kind?) who has made a pact with a Far Realm entity. Instead of unnaturally strange biology, this Far Realm entity’s perversion would manifest as a melding of technology with biological creatures.

Think of the possibilities: Sharks with lasers on their heads!!!!!

Love the show.

Thanks,

Kristofor N - “Runefang” on BGG.

P.S. Craig, feel free to chastise me for the incorrect punctuation on the song and album titles. :)

_________________________

Honorable Mention:

{RJG Really???Had to show you guys.}

Song:  Oops, I did it again (Britney Spears)  System:  Many systems possible. I will describe the classic fantasy setting.

Adventure:  {This has been formatted to fit your screen}

The climax could of course be something related to the princess seducing one or more of the characters. Maybe this leads to the characters being the target of several other victims of the princesses seduction or this leads to the princess doing something stupid afterwards, like sneaking off on her own after convincing her bodyguards to stay in the castle.

Of course, setting, gender and level of comedy can be adjusted to the gaming group. Paranoia system could be interesting, too, for example.

desperate call for help has reached the nearest Watch Station (or come

to the attention of an Inquisitor and his merry men) and the Kill Team

is dispatched to investigate.  Unnatural cold, plague zombies covered

in hoar frost, and an ancient relic requiring one sacrifice to unlock

and another to seal forever awaits them.  Oh and some dirty windows

too, just in case a window cleaner comes by.

The song I'd suggest is "46 & 2" by Tool, which conjures visions of a Callidus assassin injecting herself with polymorphine, in order to infiltrate a Genestealer Cult on some infested world.  The brooding tones of Tool seem perfect for the 40k universe so, I think it would work great with the Dark Heresy system (keep in mind I haven't played any games of 40k roleplay, so I'm not sure if it'd be more appropriate in say, Rogue Trader).

Shout Outs: Be a Part of the Show

Shout Out Rule: 140 Character Limit!

The D6 Generation shout outs area a way that we can let folks who support the show be a part of it at the same time. About a week before a new episode airs we'll reach out to our patrons at the "3+ Level" or higher and ask for shout outs!

Want to smack talk a friend?  No problem.  Wish someone a happy birthday?  Sure.  Promote an event or club? Perfect.   Even give props to your favorite store or company!

The only rules are that it has to be family friendly (PG-13), short (140 character limit), and we do reserve the right to proof your 'shout out' and recommend changes if it is inappropriate for the show.

Any of our "3+ Level" patrons can respond with a shout out to the request, and the first 5 to do so will be used in the show.  The hosts will assign the shout outs to the various segments with them (Rapid Fire, Achievements, Total Fan Girl, The News, and DYEN).  If more that 5 "3+ Level" patrons submit quickly, we'll rotate so everyone can get a chance. 

For full details on how to become a patron of the show and get into the shout out pool visit:

Audible, Show Sponsor

You’ve heard us talk about dozens of great book recommendations for gamers on the show.  But when can you find time to read them?   Audio books are the answer, and there is no better resource for audio books than Audible. 

The D6 Generation is extremely proud to have Audible as a sponsor of the show.  We take great pride in the fact that our sponsors represent the best in their industry, and Audible is certainly a fantastic example of the best way to enjoy books while commuting, on a road trip, at the gym, painting, or even organizing your favorite board game.

“I’ve been a happy Audible subscriber since 2004 and built up a library of over 270 books!  Their service has allowed me to enjoy books wherever I go no matter what device I use.   And their library is second to none.  You’ve heard me compare Malifaux to Steven King’s Dark Tower series.  Want to read it? It’s on Audible.  Looking for more obscure geek books based on Halo, Mass Effect, or Starcraft?  They’ve got those too.   What about steam punk like Bonecrusher or Leviathan?  They’ve got those as well.   And you can’t beat the price.  I give Audible a 2+ with a re-roll. – Russ Wakelin

But the best part is you can try the whole system out free for 14 days and get a free audio book which is yours to keep.

Click here to help support the show, get a free book to keep, and a free trial offer from Audible for D6G listeners.

D6G Ep 71: Spartan Games Interview & Deathwatch RPG Detailed Review

The D6G starts 2011 off big with a MEGASODE!  Up first it's an interview with Neil Fawcett, the man at the helm of Spartan Games.  We get Neil's origin story, how Spartan got started, and what lead the company from Uncharted Seas to Firestorm Armada to Dystopain Wars and beyond.

Later, the hosts go into squad mode and give a detailed review of Deathwatch, Fantasy Flight Games' RPG that lets you take on the role of a Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine.

 All that and our other not-too-horrible segments including:
