ALL HAIL THE FUNGUS KING!!! This 54mm monster of a mini has just been unlocked and is now included FREE with all pledges of Lord of Fungus and higher. Other backers may add him on for $8.00 per figure.
The background of the Fungi Kings When a mushroom man reaches over 100 years of age, his body becomes hard as timber. Sometimes, a creature of this age matures into a Fungi King.Like most of their customs, the fungi folk have adopted the term ‘king’ from the neighboring humans, whose culture they mimic.As it happens with human kings, Fungi Kings can get drawn into squabbles and power struggles with other Fungi leaders. Fungi Kings are efficient leaders, supplementing their natural power with more than a few magical tricks and a deep understanding of the Fungus Folk mindset. Most of the Fungi kings can be found in the Growth, an area of the Vale that is completely covered with all manners of mushroom. The oldest King is Nemedah the Wise, the leader of the Autumn Folk, who resides in the August Palace at the center of the Autumn Folk forest. Nemedah believes that peace fosters growth. Some Autumn Folk consider his leadership too soft, especially those concerned with the rising of the Rotten Hearts.Many disgruntled Fungi Folk have accepted the leadership of Elara Kay, a Fungus Amazon who evolved into a very human-like appearance and has ties with human diplomats from the Southern Kingdoms. Nemedah does not appear to resent this, but it cannot be denied that some conflict exists. Only time will tell if this rivalling leadership will create more than just political squabbles and degenerate into a full-blown civil war. There is still 5 days to join the Mushroom Movement.

Our Kickstarter is halfway through and we can show the sculpt for MATANAGAR.

This model was specifically designed for those who wanted a more ‘monstrous’ and dangerous looking fungus monster for your role playing and wargames. He is big and imposing and has no clothes or weapons, just pure fungine brutality.

 Matanagar is included free with Lord of Fungus pledges and above, but you can add-on as many copies as you like ($5.00 per copy). Matanagar is 40mm tall.

 Here you can see a few of the miniatures sculpted so far, on their slot-bases.

 This is the deadly Amazon Fungus, seen here in a dynamic pose. As you read this, a draft of the rules PDF is ready and will soon be sent to backers.

 We have also revealed many stretch goals for the campaign. Cavalry! The most popular, based on the comments, seem to be our pillbug riding fungus: The pillbug will be sculpted in two poses, one for riding (but the rider can be removed and the pillbug used as a monster) and one in coiled up form (it has a special ability called Conglobation that allows him to become near-invulnerable at the expense of mobility.

 This is the special pig-riding halfling truffle hunter that will be available as an add on if we reach 200 backers, no matter how much they pledge, so spread the news, send the link to anyone who might be interested and help us making Fightin' Fungi a reality.

BattleSworn - a new fantasy skirmish game from Ganesha Games is available
BID FOR VICTORY! BattleSworn is a simple set of rules for fantasy skirmish actions. Using a handful of miniatures in any scale and six-sided dice, two players can bring a game to a conclusion in around one hour. Table size is irrelevant. Distances are determined by terrain and by the position of enemies: no inches, no centimeters, no measuring sticks. BattleSworn is not your typical "I go, you go" system. The ebb-and-flow of initiative is represented by a bidding mechanic. Players bid for initiative and reveal their bids at the same time. The lowest bidder acts first, with as many characters as the number of his bid. The highest bidder reacts with as many characters as the difference between bids. Combat uses the same mechanic. Combatants roll a number of dice equal to the amount bid. Lower bids are resolved before higher bids. This forces players to take decisions: do I attack fast, sacrificing accuracy and power for speed, or do I let my opponent go first to hit him later with a harder blow? Character profiles are not encumbered with detailed statistics. They are defined by 14 classes (Fighter, Shooter, Sniper, Tank, Brute, Leader, Rogue, Warmage, Sorcerer, Healer, Cavalry, Flyer, Arquebusier, Rabble), each with its special traits. This allows you to play with minimal preparation. This is not a game for detail-oriented players or power-players. BattleSworn includes two sample scenarios, a mini-bestiary, 28 sample forces, 15 spells, guidelines to adapt the rules to other genres, and many pages of play examples and FAQs. This is a stand-alone game. No other purchases are necessary. 44 trade-size full-color pages, including table of contents, cover, play sheet, and a one-page play summary. The download includes a separate PDF with printable cards for spells, and a spreadsheet to help you build your force. Not based on the Song of Blades engine or any other game by Ganesha Games.

The Tales From The Floating Vagabond KickStarter goes live!

What the title said:
Check it out!

Space City Con (August 2 - 4, Houston, Texas)

Space City Con is an all-ages festival of comics, sci-fi, fantasy, gaming, literature, and art, in the spirit of Houston, Texas!  Envisioned as a "geek festival with free parking," our goal is to put on the best convention possible for current generations of fans, and instill a love of comics, Sci-fi and fantasy in the next generation.  It was founded in 2012, and with only 5 months to prepare, the event drew nearly 2000 unique individuals, most of whom attended all weekend.

We are the Gulf Coast’s newest fan culture convention, offering a robust mix of authors, artists, comics, sci-fi, fantasy, anime, gaming, costuming, fan group networking, literature, writing workshops and more, in a venue meant to be more approachable to families and children.  SCC is conveniently located at the Westchase Marriott conference hotel, August 2 - 4, 2013. The Westchase area has a great selection of restaurants and attractions, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or after-hours entertainment.

Just as Houston has a broad economic mix in aerospace, energy, manufacturing, transportation; it boasts the world’s largest concentration of healthcare and research institutions. Houston also has the first-ranked port in the United States and has always been home to an ever-growing international community, along with the famous NASA Johnson Space Center and Mission Control. In this same way, Space City Con will be a gathering of fans of all ages, with an exchange of pop culture passions. More than entertainment, a place to escape for a while, forge lasting friendships, and connect with talented creators across a spectrum of genres.

Space City Con embraces the Kids Need to Read foundation, since our founders consider these elements as fuel for creative thinking, vocabulary, reading comprehension, and most of all, expanding the boundaries of what is known, into dreams and a yearning for what is unknown, what is unseen…but can be painted by the incredible human heart, mind, and spirit. Space City Con wishes to pass on the torch from one generation to the next, echoing the cry for “Inspiring Imagination!”
