A fun bit for any Conan fans out there.
Holy crap it actually does say that. I've been watching the 1982 Conan the Barbarian film at least twice a year for the last 34 years, and until I flipped the frame, I never realized what the runes on Conan's father sword sai...

How's everyone today? Just thought I'd swing by for a quick promotion!

Ether Rpg is 95% funded & has reached the last 72 hours of its campaign! Only $500 to go!!!

During our Kickstarter we're releasing the physical books at reduced pricing & reduced bundle pricing! If you're looking to grab them, they are not likely to be available at these prices for long or ever again!

If you're looking to take a look (or a second look), come on by & see us. And if you've missed us so far, here's a brief TL;DR synopsis for you!

Ether Rpg is a tabletop roleplaying game built upon a combination of the genres of fantasy & 'punk (steam, diesel & a hint of cyber) in a series of apocalyptic worlds where the unusual becomes the usual.

It's intuitive d20 system & non-linear character progression is easy enough for beginners, but customizable enough for veterans.

Hello Guys! I want to share with you some information about our new game which will be released in 2 weeks. Game is called Multiuniversum.
As a link I have added multi language rulebook and PnP light version.

More about game you can find on BGG: https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/192638/multiuniversum

Game has it's international release on UK Games Expo and now we have worldwide pre-order.

Some words about game:
You’re part of a team of brilliant scientists working on the super secret lab: CERN. While experimenting with teletransportation your team came across a wonderful discovery: portals to new dimensions! The real problem is that all crazy wild creatures from those other dimensions can now walk in.

Multiuniversum is a card game puzzle where players use actions on their cards to do research, move between 5 modules of the Hadron Collider, preparing tools so they can close portals to alternative realities.

Each player has 3 cards on hand and 3 actions to make during their turn. Using these cards players can:

do research (draw 2 cards)
prepare a tool
move to any machine module
close portal
use module ability
When the player closes a portal he gets a sample form this universe (allows player to get bonus points) and knowledge points – described on card.

Each 5 module has one open portal. The game ends immediately when three portals piles are depleted The scientist who got the most knowledge points receives a Nobel prize and wins the game.

A 120-sided dice is not an original idea, says mathematician Henry Segerman. "We were just the people crazy enough to actually do it."

The crit chart in the Star Wars RPGs goes to 100. Could be used for that instead of 2d6.

Board games are the best way to play games with your friends face to face. My favorite way. I feel that video games tend to focus on singular play. Well Felicia Day showed me how she plays "Rise of the Tomb Raider" video game with 946 of her closest fans looking over her shoulder on www.Twitch.tv It was amazing and very entertaining!

Hello all!

As this is more along the lines of directed promotion, I thought perhaps the Off Topic section might be more appropriate?

Ether Rpg has gone live on Kickstarter! So, please allow me to give you a brief overview,

It's a tabletop roleplaying game focus on upon a mix of the fantasy & 'punk (a smattering of steam, diesel & cyber) genres set in an apocalyptic series of planes where magic conflicts with machinery.

As a hybrid genre system, Ether Rpg relies on non-standard characters (no elves or dwarves here) & non-linear classes.

And it's all supported by a d20 themed system designed for beginners & veterans alike.

If you're interested, check out the Kickstarter for exclusive pricing, combos & content!

We'd love to have you swing on by.

Cheers!

Go, Go, Go...Damn

The biggest news in both the technology sphere and the world of games is the match between a computer program and a human being. You may think - “Oh, I have heard this all before, IBM’s Deep Blue playing Chess, etc.” but this is different. 

What makes this match so unusual is that the game selected is Go. Go is an ancient game that is believed to have originated in China. It is considered the most complex game ever designed. Consider Chess for a moment. There are 64 squares (8x8 grid) and 32 pieces that move in particular ways. Go is played on a board that has 361 ‘spaces’ (19x19 grid - pieces are actually played on the intersections, not the physical spaces). The increase in the number of possible positions (361 versus 64) would increase the complexity of the game but Go moves well beyond that. In Chess each unit has a limited number of possible positions; the possibilities are determined by the unit itself and the position on the board. In Go there is only one type of unit and it can be played anywhere. (If you want a taste of Go but do not want to attempt the game itself, there are alternatives - programs that play on a much smaller grid or even modern derivations such as Through the Desert or Tchu Tchu Train.)

A computer Chess program can analyze all possible moves prior to implementing them. In Go that is not possible; there are simply too many potential plays. It has been a common belief that we were decades away from a computer program that could play Go competently; that it required ‘intuition’ to play well, you had to ‘feel’ the game.

A team at Google developed a program - DeepMind AlphaGo - that would learn from previous games and played somewhat by intuition. In October a match was played with a high ranked amatuer and AlphaGo won. This set in motion the match that began yesterday/today (international dateline). Korean Go Champion Lee Sedol agreed to take on AlphaGo. He had predicted he would win 5-0 or 4-1. The game was carried live on YouTube.

After 3.5 hours Lee resigned this first game and commented: “I did not know AlphaGo would play such a perfect Go”.The remaining games in the match will be played March 10, 12, 13 and 15.
