As you can see, the binding of my Vampire 20th Anniversary book is broken. The book is still usable, but I fear the binding of the cover will only get more broekn over time. Do you have any advice on how I can fix this?

I am not a serious practising bookbinder but I recommend absolutely avoiding what Michael shows in the video (not because of the half-hollow, which might be ok, but because the strain is mostly put on the endpaper, instead of on the mull, that mesh thing is supposed to keep the codex together and keep it attached to the case). Bring/send the book to a bindery, possibly one that does conservation: university cities still have them, they will fix it properly.

I just had a very weird thought. Might it be possible to run a Warhammer 40K game using White Box/White Star rules? Has anyone already done so?

I just learned about Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team. It's obviously a skirmish game which is based on the latest edition of the 40K rules. There's a £40 box which comes with two squads (one Space Marine, one Tau) and all the rules needed. I have to admit this is excatly what I was hoping for all these years.
I love Warhammer 40K, but these huge battles with 3000+ points we used to play in the past, where too long, it took ages to assemble the armies, and it was insanely expensive, when you wanted to have some variety in your army.
Is this new game any good? And are there rules for other kill-teams in the box? Can I use my Eldar aspect warriors in this game as well as my Space Marines? What about Terminator squads? Or can I just go into a store, buy a squad of Thousand Sons traitor marines and use those?

I find it really depends on the group and individual players. Some really appreciate it, and some could not care less. But if one can do "highlight" props that always works. For example while playing a pirate campaign there was of course the treasure hunt for a map. It was, as it where, Hidden inside a wooden barrel. That barrel got destroyed in an epic barfight. I simply drew a very crude map on brown carton and then cut it up to make it look like broken wooden Parts from the barrel. Players loved it as they proceeded to rebuild the map. Prep: 30 Minutes, players enjoyed it for HOURS as they used them all the time, by handing them around etc. These things are much more useful then having a prop every session.

+Bill Logan Most of what I've done so far is just compiling a document from wiki pages. But I also plan to create some custom classes and perhaps a new magic system. I might share those. The final version of the hex map can be downloaded from the blog post.

In case you missed the KS back in 2014(?), you can get the first part of the Designers & Dragons series for $3.75 in PDF, Kindle and Nook formats until tomorrow morning.

It's a damn good read in my opinion.
I can not speak highly enough of the Designers & Dragons series of books. As a gamer and a history major, they give such an enjoyably read on our hobby and it's history. I have the whole series in print and PDF and I'm due to...

Behold my updated version of my Britannia/Sosaria map. I took some liberties in order to make things more interesting, fleshed out a few areas, fixed a couple of errors which have crept in, and added texts.
