3D Terrain that is 70% off...

If you know me, you know that I like 3D terrain, especially when the price is low and the awesome is high.  For the next day, the Ravenfell Core Set is 70% off (just $4.49).  To be honest, I think it’s still a great deal at full price, though.  The cool thing about Fat Dragon terrain is that you can print it out over and [Read the article]

3D Fantasy City Buildings - Comparing Your Options

Dwarven Forge’s City Builder Kickstarter just launched. It looks awesome and as someone who has already invested heavily in Dwarven Forge dungeons and caves and I’ve already pledged.

"I push him over the ledge!" ...3D Terrain!

How many times have you been sitting at the table of a role-playing game and thought, “Hey, this is actually pretty freaking cool. I haven’t had this much fun in quite a while”?  It happens from time to time, and hopefully more often than not. I remember the first time that happened with Dungeons & Dragons 4E.  I built “The Shrine” quite hastily (pictured right) [Read the article]

RPG Cartography - A touch of 3D

So… the Shack has been online for about a year, but this is our first time participating in the RPG Carnival – mostly because we’re slow, but partly because the topic of RPG Cartography really got our attention.  So, we just had to contribute.  Oh yeah, the Carnival’s host for this topic is also our Site of the Month! Make sure you stop by A Character for Every Game, [Read the article]
