Awakened Tree Complete
(I Am Broot!)

Any DnD druid that lives long enough to see level 8 wants their very own Awakened Tree, my druid being no exception; having already picked out the name Broot for his future buddy. So, in preparation of hitting level 8 soon (I hope), I got this "miniature" off of Mierce Miniatures. I put quotations around that word because this thing is pretty damn big. Like, throw it at somebody and cause a concussion big. And maybe it was the size of this canvas, maybe it was feeling like I had more freedom with all of the randomly placed foliage or maybe it was simply that I wasn't painting those dumb vampires, but this project was a lot of fun. More pics after the jump.

Vampires Complete
(These Sucked)

Every now and then, there's a project that you love. You can't wait to get home from work and just start back in on it. It keeps you awake at night, the memories of joy and the pain of not being able to spend every waking moment at the hobby table. For me, this was the opposite of one of those projects. I hated painting these (mostly the horses), and though they turned out great, it's hard to tell since I didn't even care to take pictures that showed them off. These were merely models I had started and needed to finish to get to my next project (something I'm ecstatic for!) Pics after the jump, I guess.

Uncanny Against Darkness
(Back To The Rules-Writing)

Ever played Four Against Darkness? Well, you should. It's Ganesha Games' newest game; a standalone, simple, yet engrossing RPG that only requires you and one d6. The best part? The entire rulebook is only $8 and their first two expansions are under $3 each (you can check out their products HERE). This game comes from the same company that brought us all SoBaH (another one of my favorites). Anyway, after I finished my first dungeon I was hooked and decided to expand the game out a bit with some new classes that I've enjoyed from other RPGs.

You can download a copy HERE, but you'll of course need the Four Against Darkness rules first. I will keep this link updated with the latest version as I continue to refine and playtest it.

Uncanny Against Darkness is a fan-made expansion to the official game Four Against Darkness. It was made without the permission of...well, anyone. This is a no-profit, made with love for the game PDF and is only meant to promote Four Against Darkness further. Happy gaming!
