Kickstarter of the Week: Adventures of a System Admin

Adventures of a System Admin is back on Kickstarter, with Back to Business. This is issue #5 for the series, and their third Kickstarter campaign.

Writer/Creator, Juan Espinosa, is a Systems Administrator in real life and created the series to help educate readers about S.T.E.M. and using technology safely.

Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the Week: New Bristol.

To a broad segment of the RPG world, one of the largest and most popular systems is Savage Worlds. Over the years I’ve seen a ton of games built around the Savage Worlds engine, but I’ve simply never had the time or opportunity to dig into it. As a result, I see the logo and just pass by. That is in no way a negative judgment, simply reality of our limited and linear time. The reason I bring that up is to frame where I’m coming from in this Spotlight. I didn’t come across it via the Savage Worlds community, but rather from Endless Realms, which I’ve reviewed in some detail...

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF TOYO HARADA TPB

THE LIFE AND DEATH OF TOYO HARADA CoverWicked! The world of Valiant’s Harbinger is so much more complicated than I gave it credit as you will find in the enormous trade paperback The Life and Death of Toyo Harada. It’s a big read, hence my delay, and completely worth it.
