The ‘DRAGONLOCK Ultimate: GM Screen of DOOM’

A friend of a friend does 3D-printing templates for RPG purposes — and, in passing: 3-D printing is proving to be a boon for people who like RPG miniatures — and he’s just put up DRAGONLOCK Ultimate: GM Screen of DOOM up at  Looks pretty sweet, people.  I don’t have a 3-D printer because I don’t have room for one, but if I did I’d be printing out stuff like this for as long as the feedstock held out.

…’Feedstock.’ Probably has a tank for it, too.  Dang, but I love the future sometimes.


Fat Dragon’s ‘World War Tesla’ wargame is doing something interesting with 3-D printing.

To wit: Fat Dragon is just going to sell all the 3-D templates for the various World War Tesla units and whatnot. And not expensively, either: the basic game costs twenty bucks (and is currently half off of that until the end of January), and it looks like the prices for new items will range from free to a couple of bucks. They’re saying that all of their units can be printed out for no more than a buck’s worth of feedstock and electricity a mini, so if you’re a gamer who owns a 3-D printer already this may be your lucky day.

As for the game itself: miniatures skirmish war gaming set in an alternate World War I where super-science holds sway. The world looks entertaining enough, although I don’t quite see how Tesla managed to scramble European diplomacy quite as thoroughly as he apparently did.  Ach, well.  They’ll no doubt explain it all in the rulebook.


The ‘DRAGONLOCK 2: Fantasy Village Terrain for 3D Printers’ Kickstarter.

Got turned onto this one by an online friend of mine.  I’m not backing it – I don’t have a 3-D  printer – but it looks like a pretty sweet deal for somebody who has one and who games.  I’m also told that 3-D printers have been going down in price lately, which means that I guess Steve Jackson Games was justified in bumping us up to Tech Level 8…


I am behind on my technical reading.

When did we suddenly become able to do sh*t like this?

I mean, that’s some Ultra-Tech sh*t, there: when did we start merchandising it?
