Zack's Dozen: Winter Update!

Last year, I started doing Zack's Dozen on the sidebar, which is a way for me to share some products, old, new, and upcoming, that are getting my attention just now. It doesn't mean those are the only things I'm focused on, but it does represent some cool products or projects that have me interested.

Let's hear it one more time for our previous dozen, in no particular order, as always! Just because they're not in the current Dozen doesn't mean we'll be seeing them again:

1) Swashbucklers of the Seven Skies

2) Gamescience Dice

3) On Her Majesty's Arcane Service

4) Gaming Paper

5) Castle Keeper's Guide

6) Chronica Feudalis

7) Open d6

8) Lake Geneva Castle & Campaign

9) Pathfinder RPG

10) Fight On!

11) Eclipse Phase

12) Hellfrost

We have a few games and products that have held on to a spot in the Dozen--good for them! The rest are new entries (again, in no particular order of ranking):

1) Ancient Odysseys: Treasure Awaits!

2) Dresden Files RPG

3) Hexographer

4) Agon RPG

5) Trailblazer

6) Rolemaster Express

7) The d66 Product Line

8) The Dungeon Alphabet

9) Stonehell Dungeon

10) Basic Roleplaying

11) Castle of the Mad Archmage

12) Fight On!

I hope you'll take the time to at least browse this list--my gaming tastes are pretty eclectic, so hopefully there's something for everyone on there! Enjoy!

That is a very unusual mix!

But a willingness to sample different types of games is the sign of a thinking individual. I applaud your eclectic taste.

I feel like something less of a DM because the only products you list that I'm familiar with are Pathfinder (starting my first game with the system) and The Dungeon Alphabet - and I only know the latter because Grognardia mentioned it recently.

I have brought shame to my people.

C.W. Bush said...

Actually, I tell a lie. I'm familiar with The Dresden Files because a series I read (and love) by Glen Cook is often compared to them.

Garrett P.I. - check it out if you like Dresden. Apparently they're similar.

Hey, no shame. That's why I share them. And there's always the chance they may not do anything for you. In running a RPG blog, I'm likely going to have my ear to the ground more than someone who isn't involved like that. Doesn't signify, except that I have a hard time fighting off Gamer ADD. :)

I am honored that Castle of the Mad Archmage has made it back onto the list. Thanks!

Zachary The First said...

Every time I'm out, you keep pulling me back in.

Your work on CotMA is never far from my mind, honestly. It's one of the most enjoyable products I've seen in a long time.

Holy cow! What? WOW! I am really honored to have d66 on this list. Thank you!

I've recently completed my Hellfrost core books, now having the Gazetteer, the Bestiary, and the Player's Guide. I have to agree with you: this setting is really cool! Best of all, the setting guide is 99.9% rules-free, so I can use it with any setting (though we will be using Savage Worlds).

I was pretty happy to see it mentioned here.
