I’ve been getting back into regular painting, and caught up with the partially-finished Blood Rage Bear Clan from my previous work in process. I wanted to theme four of the clans for the seasons, so the Bear are the Winter clan.
The Blind Jump crew have moved on to a new solar system. On a cold, dusty red planet, they discover a strange construct, seemingly half building, half creature. One entrance at either end appears viable – a mouth-like orifice with razor-sharp metallic teeth in continual chomping motion, and a tightly closed sphincter. The crew opts […]
This week, the Legionnaires launch their hostage rescue mission, and find an unexpected enemy, and unexpected allies. Featuring Frankie, Brendan, Bob, Frank, and Jung Soo of the Foundry Gang.
Over the New Year’s weekend, Joy and I finally got a chance to break out Space Gate Odyssey, a 2-4 player game from Ludonaute Games, thereby removing the longest-standing unplayed game from my shelf. The premise of the game is that you are competing factions trying to gain predominance on specific colony worlds by building […]

The mechanics of the game are a fairly conventional mix of draw-one play-one and set […]
The Blind Jump crew are exploring an alien space station that appears to be haunted. After fighting off hostile ghost-like creatures, they continue further into the station. As they explore, the floor suddenly starts to feel strange, almost as though the flat floor was made of rollers. Whooey scans the floor, but can’t figure out […]
Happy Monsters Joy and Scott, Foundry Gang member Brendan, and Lara of Savage Salem playthrough and review Yedo from IDW Games.
After resupplying on Tlaina, the Blind Jump crew jumps to a new set of coordinates. The star system they discover is largely empty; a star has inflated to a red giant and then collapsed, leaving the system mostly empty. However, an octohedral space station orbits near the wormhole exit node, with four docking ports spread […]
The Blind Jump crew have discovered a treasure – an intact Founder City. At the center of the city, they discovered a sort of temple, and inside, the entrance to a series of catacombs. They descend, seeking the next fragmented coordinate that would lead them to the massive starship they saw at the beginning of […]
