This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

I am playing this game. It's kind of a mashup of a miniatures game and a card game, and its free. I kinda suck at it, but I love the Forglar Swamp faction.

Yeah, it's pretty cool. I they had a booth right across from the Hinterwelt booth last year and I was working Gencon for Bill. Nice people, cool looking game. Glad to see they made another trip this year. :D

Might be, but I don't think their ads are very good.

The name "PoxNora" is especially goofy, but when I saw that pixelly artwork and the Forglar faction I knew I had to try it out. It's a very cool game.

Okay, after trying out a game last night, I can't get behind this. The concept is awesome, but the game took for-ev-ar. I surrendered after an hour and a half, although I'm pretty sure I was winning as I had both fonts and managed to do a whopping 5 points of damage to the other guys shrine. I still think it's conceptually awesome, but I'd never have time/patience to seriously play it.

Sometimes if it goes long, I admit I'll just surrender. I just love the pixelly art though.
