Lords of Death: Big Trouble in Little China preview
I was gonna write my next preview about the two versions of the Three Thunders, but I don't have time to tackle that topic today. Instead, here's a henchman. The Lords of Death seem like a bunch of low-lifes with awesome sunglasses, but nobody ever wants to...

My GenCon Schedule, 13th Age, & Glorantha
