September 30, 2022: Vikings In STL

Iain Lovecraft's Vikings Kickstarter is in its last 24 hours. His projects are always spectacular, and an amazing bang for the buck, and this one is no exception. Even if you don't happen to need Viking buildings or ships (and this project includes several museum-quality ships) there are plenty of things that can be used in multiple other settings, like the walls and fences, animals, palisades, plank streets, piers, and assorted scatter terrain and props. There are some well-dressed townsfolk, and of course numerous fighter figures (both male and female) which could serve well for characters). Plus, as always, the add-ons are fantastic.

September 29, 2022: Nightmare Fuel Coming To BackerKit

In October, three new bestiary volumes launch for the Dungeon Fantasy RPG on Backerkit Crowdfunding! Gaming Ballistic is pleased to announce the Nightmare Fuel crowdfunding campaign!

Why Did it Have to Be Snakes?

Always a classic. From the powerful spawn of the World Serpent Jörmungandr to the mythical hydra. The flying coatl and the (totally not a) medusa. These legendary creatures come in all sorts of sizes, ready to crush, envenom, and petrify delvers. Or swallow them whole.
Now we know why it had to be snakes! How could it be anything else?

Really Big Bugs

What's more terrifyingly awesome than a swarm of insects? A plague of giant, man-eating insects. From giant ants to ant-men. Scorpions both swarmed and super-sized. And spiders, of course. From ancient near-gods (who are absolutely not spawns of Ungoliant) to baby acid spiders. Does it sting, bite, enweb, or just . . .

September 28, 2022: Visit Our Discord!

We have a company Discord now. Technically, we've had it for a while, but it has been closed except during FnordCons. It's now open 24/ 7 and we'd love to see you! (I like Discord.)

Current discussion categories are New & Upcoming, Munchkin, Car Wars, Ogre/GEV, Roleplaying Games, and Other Games.  We announce when we launch crowdfunding/preorder campaigns, and we announce when we're going live on stream.

We find ourselves talking about things like RPG campaign overviews, 3d printing projects and strategies, Car Wars game recaps and analysis, discussions of favorite Munchkin sets, and favorite weird promos found over the years.

We have no regularly scheduled live events . . . yet . . . but we'll see how things grow. Our staff irregularly appears on the Discord and makes brilliant comments, and sometimes the other kind too.

This is the invite link to join the server: . . . [more]

September 27, 2022: Roll The Deck! Unlocking Kickstarter Stretch Goals

Our new Pick a Card Dice set is scheduled to reach game stores late this year and right now, on Kickstarter, we're funding Roll the Deck! So far, the campaign has unlocked five different stretch goals, upgrading the $18 and higher reward levels with more stuff!

Available in PDF and print, Roll the Deck! is an A6-sized booklet of 11 different games, every single one of which you can play with friends and family. The Kickstarter campaign also offers the new Pick a Card Dice for those of you who wish to grab both at once. Just remember that the dice pack is scheduled for release to stores and you can always buy the set at your local store while selecting only the book in the Kickstarter campaign.

The project closes on October 3. Join us today!

September 26, 2022: Kickstarter's Witchstarter Event

Kickstarter sometimes runs site-wide promotions, encouraging creators to construct projects around a common theme. Their Zine Quest events, perhaps the most successful of Kickstarter's theme months, led to the creation of the Hexagram series for The Fantasy Trip (the 10th issue just funded on Kickstarter!). Now they've announced a site-wide event for October that we may participate in if our concepts shake out properly.

Witchstarter, announced here, is described as:

". . . our first open call for Magic & Divination projects. To participate, launch a project in the theme of magic and the occult, or discover new favorites to pledge to. We'll give an extra promotional boost to projects that follow the theme. Deck or dice, book or board game, ideas for Witchstarter projects may span any category on Kickstarter."

Magic and games? Yeah, we've got some ideas. Maybe one will shape up in . . . [more]
