0. What's Better Than a Cow?

1. Geek Week
Rob's been playing Fallout 3. And playing, and playing, and playing... and playing...

Chuck's been writing a board game called Dungeon Dwellers, and RPG Objects is going all printified with Amazon BookSurge

Fraser is hyped by the new Star Trek Trailer at Apple Trailers and is looking forward to his Viking True20 game. You can read the campaign journal  if you really are that bored.

A list of 12 RPGs every gamer  should play before they die.

   If you're ready to attack the darkness, check out the KORE RPG podcast.

2. Feature - Wars and Rumours of Wars

Are the PCs involved in the Siege of Mafeking or are maybe meeting Winston Churchill  during the Second Boer War 

In World War I, you could run games set in the Arab Revolt, there's espionage, or you could go the alt-history Soldiers and Spellfighters route.
Commandos, SAS or the Red Orchestra  (perhaps attempting to retrieve the Blutfahne) during World War II
The Military Assistance Command, Vietnam - Studies and Observations Group (MACV-SOG), riverine warfare, or just plain weird stuff (like the Korean movie R-Point) in the Vietnam War.

Did you just rediscover beer? Time to discover Return to Northmoor.
 
3. The Hook
What if the PCs are part of an SAS team (one of the Special Raiding Squadrons) in Italy in Aug/Sept 1943, only to intercept information that Otto Skorzeny, famed German commando, is in the area. This would be near Gran Sasso d'Italia, a mountain located in the Abruzzo region of central Italy. Mussolini is being held at Campo Imperatore. The actual rescue of Mussolini by Skorzeny took place on Sept 12, but can your SRS foil Skorzeny's attempt? Perhaps even capture the German hero?

4. Podcast News
Heart of the Hunter Completed.
Heart of the Hunter, Sam Chupp's fantasy novel, is now complete. Sam describes this novel as being in the style of Steven Brust's Jhereg novels, using pastiches and cognates of real-world cultures in order to convey a sense of culture and place.

You can  listen to the novel over at heartofthehunter.com

Veni Vidi Venatus
The fine gentlemen over at Spooky Outhouse Productions are organizing something they call "One Shotter Day", or Veni Vidi Venatus (I came, I saw, I gamed), which is a day which several gaming stores will be offering one-shots of various RPGs and board games. There might be something set up in your area, so go check out the forums at www.podgecast.com. I'm going to be trying to set something up in Kitchener, so if you're interested, let me know on the forums or via email.
