I just downloaded Issue #2 of the The Dragon Horde by Richard LeBlanc. Available in print and pdf, it’s a Nordic-themed issue with Linnorms, longhouses, and Völva:

DHZ2-Preview-Cover

I haven’t had a chance to do a thorough read-through, but I already intend to steal some of these ideas for Dwarven Glory. You can check out more from New Big Dragon Games at the Save vs. Dragon blog.

Callot's Dwarf

It might fit better on my Mutants & Magic gameblog, but I came across this post today and have to share it…

Kudos to Gus L of Dungeons of Signs for an awesome post. And check out my related Anomalous Subsurface Environment stuff over at Mutants & Magic.

As I mentioned before, I’m a player in a D&D 2e Rise of the Runelords campaign run by P. Armstrong (from Ode to Black Dougal). I play Klack – a slag dwarf fighter/thief from the Kodar Mountains of Golarion. Another guy plays Kilin – a fighter/cleric and Klack’s half-brother.

Anyhow, thought I should post a picture of the minis we’re using for the PCs:

(That’s Klack on the left, and Kilin on the right.)

Observe that they are holding twin Frost Axes, won from the lair of Mokmurian. Also, note Klack’s preference for the colour green. (His Swamp Boots are particularly fetching.)

We just made it into Xin Shalast in this week’s session. I’m pretty sure that awesomeness (or else certain death) await.

Chris from Yoda Archives points out some more Tolkien-themed LEGO dwarf goodness (via the Hollywood Reporter):

From left: Gandalf, Dwalin, Bombur, Bofur, Bilbo, and Balin

The wizard and hobbit are forgettable, but check out those other badasses! Bofur’s LEGO fur cap is FABULOUS! Makes the evil dwarf from the Series 5 look like a pantywaist…

Shelob Attacks

Not necessarily dwarf-related, but nonetheless cool…

Last week I picked up some LEGO for my (ahem) son. It was the Lord of the Rings “Shelob Attacks” set.

Check out that articulated spider attack action. The web is completely retractable, and everything is fully mobile.

The hobbit minifigs are beardless and therefore not badass like dwarves, but they do come with short dwarf legs so I can use the parts to build up my LEGO dwarf army
