Saw 'The Tale of Princess Kaguya'. 50% fairytale, 40% memoirs of a Geisha, 10% LSD moon Buddha abduction. Worth seeing just for the uncut What The Fuck that the movie ended with.

I've heard this game described as "The Best Discworld Game Not actually set in the Discworld" - you play a group of trainee (read - inept) wizards trying to save their academy by casting spells they don't actually understand. Tempted to trick out my copy with Discworld miniatures when it arrives...
 
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/820113175/wizards-academy broke £20k this morning. I find it so rewarding that everyone seems so delighted by the gameplay :) That's my bit!
3DTotalGames is raising funds for Wizard's Academy on Kickstarter! A cooperative game of magical experimentation with different powers every game. Featuring 40 minis and 30 illustrations by top artists.

oh, hey, you're right +Timothy Franklin. I just went with the first one I saw that said full game, I didn't look up after that.

Still, £60 out of my range. I might jump at the print & play.

Check out the awesome wee d20 broach my pals at Frilly Industries make - http://www.frillyindustries.com/3pm-at-the-carboot/ - cute as the dickens. Also it will teach your other d20s how to behave.

The PCs in my group keep getting knocked below 0hp but not dying (I'm running LotFP so death is at -4). I need a critical injury table so I can start stripping their legs and skin off. Any suggestions?

The players in my home game have been pressing up against the edges of the base classes in Lamentations of the Flame Princess. So I've sketched together some variant classes that tweak things a little to bring the mechanics a bit closer to the flavour or en...

Do you have the urge to run an RPG, but you don't where to start? Alex Roberts, Shanna Germain, A. Miles Davis, and Dani L. will be joining me to talk about how to get started and sharing their advice for new GMs, We'll be taking your live questions, too!

+Shanna Germain  claims the titles of leximaven, Schrodinger's brat, bisexual brainlicker, and vorpal blonde. She is an award-winning author, editor, and game designer, as well as the co-owner and creative director at Monte Cook Games.

+Alex Roberts  is a story gamer and LARPer, and co-host of the RPG podcast, The Tabletop Superhighway. thetabletopsuperhighway.com

+Dani L.  is a gamer who is new to me, but maybe not new to you. She is an avid reader, consumer of cinema and TV, and gamer who helps organize her local gaming group and loves introducing people to the hobby, new games, and each other

Just found out that the teeny not for profit I work at isn't going to get a fund that allows us to bring art workshops to young people with various disadvantages (it's a mixed group across the whole beauty pageant of deprivation). Can someone suggest some really, really brutal metal?

Races/Classes  - 
 
In the spirit of the New Class discussion, here are the work-in-progress variant classes I'm adding to my home game. Two of these should hit the table on Monday - so I might update if there's any tweaks to be made.

I like traps! If you have any suggestions on the logic that leads someone to make a dismemberment-machine, please comment.

Great Cantonese restaurant with a wide range of dishes, friendly staff and superb vegetarian options. Excellent all round - one of the best takeaways and Chinese restaurants in the area.

Great little restaurant which does Cantonese takeaway. Haven't eaten at the restaurant, but everyone seemed very pleasant and the takeaway was delicious. No msg and clearly more health conscious than your average Chinese (and the local competition). There was a great range on the menu and the dishes were all distinctive and very tasty. Offers excellent vegetarian options including some tasty tofu dishes, and more authentic flavours than some other local Chinese restaurants.
