Houses of the Blooded on the Cheap

August 31st, 2008 · 4 Comments

I’m a John Wick fan. He’s written some of my favorite games (Legend of the Five Rings, 7th Sea, Orkworld) and I’m a big fan of his Play Dirty vidcasts. Some of you may know he just released a new game, Houses of the Blooded.  I’ve been following the game’s development because it really hit the sweet spot for me:  noble houses, intrigue, modified FATE system, domain rules.  Stuff that you know I love if you’ve been following the Campaign Recaps of KTNG at all.

Well, John’s done something wild.  For an unspecified limited time, he’s selling HotB PDFs for $5. It’s 438 pages.  As I have yet to really dig into the book myself, I can’t tell you much about the game beyond what I learned by watching development, but I can tell you that it’s easily worth $5 for the GMing advice that it contains alone, never mind the game.

I like to share good deals and good games.  This seems to be both.  Go look into it.

That’s Good, Head

Aron Head, The Bastard, is a blogger who has recently reviewed some of his favorite podcasts.  I’m happy to report that we’re at the top!

His blog is a good read, too.  If you enjoy The Podge Cast you’ll find him waxing on topics you’ll likely enjoy.

Just never let the man take your picture.  Trust me on that.
