Friday Knight News – Summer Edition: 21-JUN-2012

Welcome to the Friday Knight News for this Friday, June 21st, 2012! First of all, let’s just get the traditional TGIF! out of the way. The first part of the week was insane, but it’s actually reached manageable levels of crazy the last few days so I really can’t complain. Sanity on a scale where I was able to work on a couple of things this week that weren’t screaming for my attention at the time. So that’s a step forward. :)

Next, it’s looking like I actually may be doing some gaming this weekend. Huzzah! We’ll hope it materializes, but at the very least we’re closing in on a date that may work for everybody soon. Thankfully we had Free RPG Day last weekend so I got my gaming fix in just in case. I played the 3rd level DCC RPG adventure that Goodman Games contributed to the Free RPG effort and dragged my daughters into the mix. Though it was a bit creepy with all the spiders and such, I must say my girls did really well. My youngest took her 50′ rope, made a lasso, and was lassoing some of the giant spiders from afar so her sister had a better target to shoot at with a Magic Missile. I lost track of the bugs they squashed in this manner. :)

So I’m hoping that many of you were able to partake in the Free RPG Day festivities in your areas. And I’m hopeful that maybe I’ll have an opportunity to take a look at some of the goodies I picked up soon.

Beyond that, it was a crazy week here at Game Knight Reviews:

I won’t guarantee that every week at GKR is going to be that crazy with content, but it’s awesome that it can happen once in a while!

Now after all of that… It’s time for the news!

There’s definitely plenty of news go go around!

I hope everybody has a great weekend! If anybody gets out to see Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter this weekend, let me know! :)

As always, if you feel I missed something (and it would be impossible NOT to), drop me a quick note via the contact page or drop me an e-mail at news(at)gameknightreviews(dot)com and I’ll add it to the list for next week!

  • Ah, I’m sorry if my article led you to believe that Pathfinder Online was actually doing a transgaming element with Pathfinder Society… that was just a real world world example of an opportunity I saw where such a concept could be implemented.

    I actually thought of bridging the gap between the table and digital gaming realms on my own and hadn’t seen anything like that yet and thought PFO would be ideal to implement such a strategy.

    Thanks for linking to my article though!

      @Mad Brew – Thanks for the clarification. I must have just been wearing my rose colored glasses while reading with optimism in mind. :) It’s a great idea and I wish more companies would try to tie their properties together. Would be a challenge, but a worthwhile one I suspect. :)

  • Thanks for the link and the call out for the Free RPG Day PDFs. I managed to pick up one of the Pathfinder PDFs, and promptly lost track of it. Hah! I’m going to spend part of today scouring Google for the PDFs that I’m missing.

      @Hungry – Awesome. If you get more links to some of the freebies, let me know. I picked up a few things that day but am always looking for more. :)
