Update! (or Damn life, always getting in the way...)

I have a few posts planned honest, but a birthday, illness and new job have taken over for now. Here's a quick update on what's been happening.

Random Coin Design Generator

It occurred to me that although gold coins are a huge part of D&D they are very rarely given any thought beyond the usual arguments about how much to give and whether xp should be linked to it. I thought a simple method of generating designs that are on the coins, representing the lost and alien civilisations that built the dungeons and left the treasure would be a fun way of adding some weirdness and highlighting that, actually, its pretty crazy that there are all these gold coins lying around.

So I made a D20 table, you can roll once for a quick generation or three times for extra randomness. Some of the ideas are taken from actual coins (horned turtle for example). I'm sure you could use this to add backstory to a dungeon, giving some explanation of it's origin or just as some throwaway flavour.

40k Without Number

I've been reading the Stars Without Number rulebook, and wow, it makes me want to hack it to run a 40k campaign. I'd probably struggle to find players with the people I know, but that won't stop me planning it.

The Retired Adventurer has done some posts on hacking SwN for 40k:

Putting these here (in no particular order) as a reference for myself. I can't find anyone else who has done this so any links to other ideas would be appreciated.

Miniature Pics (Finally!)

The whole point of this blog was to show some of my painted minis. I started painting again at the start of the year after a decade (or more?). I don't claim to be a good painter but at least I'm reasonably quick! Most of these models were painted, not including drying time, in 1 - 2 hours.

Necromunda Gang Name Generator

This was created on a sleepless night as a way to pass the time. Thanks to my girlfriend for help when my brain stopped working!

Pretty self explanatory,  the "of [NAME]" part is definitely optional.
