Merry Ho-Ho time

Interruption of Service

First of all, HOLY CRAP 100 POSTS!!!!

Secondly, I wish you all a merry whatever-it-is you celebrate. Third, This is the last post until the new year as I'll be off visiting family, partying with friends (Hi Denny!), and getting cross-eyed goonered via the devils drink (BOOOZAHOL!). Thusly, no more posts until early-ish January.

So may all you're holiday wishes come true.

Until the new year (If the world doesn't end tomorrow that is....),
Bean out.

On the Workbench: Dec 15th

On the Workbench

Not much of an update today unfortunately. I've been hard at work getting prepped for Xmas, selling all my worldly possessions (aka: all my unused models) on ebay and making as much money as possible (aka:none) to cover upcoming trips to see family and friends over the holidays. So between that, setting up a new campaign I'm going to be running online for some friends (Cyberpunk!), and some painting commissions I'm working on, I've not had much time to get any personal hobby work done.

Thusly, you all will get the "On the Workbench" treatment today, also known as "I don't have anything new today" or "OH GOD WHY CAN'T I PAINT!!!!!".

So here we go!

The little blue book

Behind the Screen

This is my Sneaky face
Welcome back all, to another round of Behind the Screen. Today I want to talk about a neat little concept I've recently been introduced to called 'the Blue Book'.
Now I could go on at length about the subject, but as many others already have, I'll just take the most condensed and succinct explanation I have found to date, and steal it to place here in the blog.
Note: The following was lifted wholesale [sic] from RPGnetWiki

Hook, Line and Sinker

Behind the Screen

Fishing can be scary sometimes...
Every games referee has those moments when they just hit a wall. A brick wall composed of fatigue, brain drain, apathy or any number of reasons that all boil down to this: They've got a game to run tomorrow and they don't have a mission to throw at their players.
Luckily, Ol' Bean here has an answer.
Or rather I've liberated an answer from Palladium games whole sale (aka I straight up jacked the idea and have been running with it for ages).

Crazy concepts: A study in what is possible

Thursday Theories

I, like many of you, have aspirations of creating something great and memorable for wield on the table top against my opponents. Most of the time, these concepts sit in my note books, floating around in the back of my brain, never to see fruition. But not today, today, I'm going to post up some crazy concepts I've had in the last while:

Don't be a fool. Use your tools!

Thursday Theories

I HAVE THE POWER... to tell you about this stuff...

Every GM has those days when they need a little inspiration or help, a little "something something" to make the tasks easier. The following are just some of my favorite tools to help out.

The Grand List of Console Role Playing Game Cliches:
This absolutely wonderful list covers everything and more when it comes to cliches in role playing, whether it's next level bad guys coming back for round two (in a more powerful form!) or an explanation as to why that shop keeper sells the same things as every other shop keeper everywhere else but when you needed it, this list has it.

The Donjon:
This handy-dandy little page allows you to instantly create a dungeon or cavern complex for almost any gaming system out there that you could need it for... including encounters!
Super useful and incredibly easy to use, you'll never be without a last minute dungeon again.

The Obsidian Portal:
A fantastic site for groups to get organized and build a game together, this site allows the group involved to build a wiki of their gaming world, keep their characters up to date, AND keep a gazetter going for the gaming world. An awesome site to be sure.

The WotC Dice Roller:
Lets you roll dice for those times you forgot your dice bag at home.

Scriblink: The Online White Board:
This great little tool is an online white board (duh!) that multiple people can edit and mess around with... great for online gaming!

And those are just a few of the awesome tools available for people out thee on the Interwebz. Anything awesome you guys and dolls like to use? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,
Remember: The golden Idol weighs more than a bag of sand...

Army Lists ala Bean: Ariadna Defense Force

Armies ala Bean

The model does not choose you, you choose the model

Over the course of writing this blog, I and Richard, have written a goodly few lists and army concepts for others to use. Themed army lists, conceptual lists, Tournament worthy gaming lists, and sometimes even silly explanations for why we're painting up certain units. One thing we have not done is written down our favoured lists that we actually use against each other and other players when we DO play games (Yes this happens). That changes now:
In this first installment I'm going to start with my preferred game of choice: Infinity

 Some MOST of the lists I write are written based on either a theme or what I have available to me, model wise. I, almost always, use units that many deem "useless" or "shit" because I like the model, not because of some need to prove a units worth. I buy stuff I like the look of, and will always use them. I am a casually competitive player and have very little interest in tournament play these days, and only play for fun and profit (Profit being the looser buys the drinks after).
Therefor any list I write should NOT be thought of as a tournament list or even particularly GOOD, though I will write explanations for why I've included certain models or units.
You have been warned.
