Monday Pointers, January 28, 2013: Why Didn’t I Know About This Edition

D4: Flying Swordsman RPG
It’s bad enough that I didn’t know that was a Moldvay style retro-clone focusing on China with Wuxia style martial arts. It’s downright embarrassing that the writer’s blog is on my reader list. I bought Nod 8 for Mu-Pan to use with Ruins & Ronin. I think, given the more Chinese nature of Mu-Pan, Flying Swordsman is a better fit (although R&R has great additional material). It’s hard not to buy Nod 9 and 10 now to have it all.

D6: A Blue Retroclone
As regular readers know I started with the wonderful blue book edition edited by Dr. Holmes. There had yet not been a retroclone of this melange of OD&D and its supplements, magazine articles (five fold alignment for one), house rules, and AD&D but Dreamscape Design has provided one and an adventure. They promise another book to expand the levels to 14 (although several other ones already exist)

D8: Speaking of Holmes
Okay, this one I already knew about. In fact, I’ve been a member for a while. For those interested in Holmes there is a Google+ community.

D10: Scavenger Fleets
If it hadn’t been for dead redshirts I still wouldn’t know my favorite space game had a new supplement. Go grab it and while you’re at it read about the rest of the Redshirts campaign over at Rather Gamey. It sounds like it was a blast (we linked to it earlier regarding the factions game posts).
