A bunch of my cool old stuff!
I’m well known for tripping down memory lane. Deep cleaning my basement has yielded buried treasure on an epic level!
Much to my surprise, Crystal Caste Dice is still around as a company. I love any dice that are unusually shaped. These dice are epic! I nearly fainted when we found these.
Some companies have not fared so well over the years, but these guys are still around making gorgeous dice. I was really surprised to find these as I thought they were lost in the move 13 years ago. Turns out they were hiding in a box full of cords and outlet strips.
I unearthed a second relic of old from the bygone days of yesteryear.
This one is kinda crazy. Back in my game store days, this kind of thing was pretty common. I used to hang onto stuff like this for nostalgia and the cool art. I think there might even be a couple of old Chessex catalogs around here. I used to memorize those.
At the rate I’m going, I’m just going to end up running a 2nd Ed AD&D game again or getting into Castles & Crusades from Troll Lord Games. Troll Lord has a nice website, but no shiny catalog with cool logo. I still have my T$R shirt around here somewhere. (*Note the $ represents the dragon emblem when I type it out.)
The last part of the stroll down memory lane is Warhammer Fantasy Magic.
I was a fan of the FRPG long before I went to college, so I had a pretty good idea how it all worked. I had gotten into Warhammer 40K prior to playing fantasy for the first time. Orks are my 40K army. Undead are my Fantasy army.
Not only are the Undead fun to play in that game, but they’re incredibly fun to paint, too. Not to mention skeletons are pretty easy. I also like 40K Necrons for the old Tub Thumpin rules. (I get knocked down, but I get up again…) Being in command of an undead army in any game is a rush, especially about the time you get to start raising more army.
Thanks for wandering down good old memory lane with me today. I hope your week is going well. I appreciate you. More content is on its way. Game on!
