As anyone who’s followed my personal gaming history knows, my personal sweet spot has always been roleplaying games, and in particular, indie RPGs.

So I was particularly thrilled to open our latest shipment from Indie Press Revolution and find it not only chock full of standards like the evergreen Fiasco, the locally designed but internationally beloved Microscope and the just-in-time-for-Halloween, Jenga-based horror classic you’ve always meant to try but haven’t yet, Dread;

but also some exciting new stuff like the Burning Wheel Codex, Fairie Skies and Fantasy Friends from Star Line Publishing, the same people who brought you Maid: The RPG, yes, that one.

Most exciting of all for me, though, was the inclusion of the greatest game I never knew I was looking for, Spirit of ’77.

Yes, those lunatics over at Monkeyfun Studios used some sort of strange retro technology to hack into my dreams…

…and discover just how quickly I could become horribly addicted to this high power, apocalypse-engine-driven, grindhouse emulation machine! It drives me mad, mad, you hear me, just talking about it!

I’m also super stoked because this indie RPG shipment is just the beginning of a massive reboot of our entire RPG section, the next phase of which will be a big restock of P3 paint and sculpting supplies and, shortly thereafter, a big restock of both painted and unpainted minis to finally get us fully back into this here RPG retailing game!

So whether you’re the fringest of story gamers or the most most mainstream of classic fantasy roleplayers, newb or grognard, come and down and check out what we have in store for you this week and all this month. We’re confident that you’ll be thrilled that you did and are going to be working hard to ensure that you are.

See you soon,
