Ottawa Game Publishers Podcast: Trying on the Chainmail Bikini

Source: Ottawa Game Publishers Podcast

Got the recording of episode 8 done, tentatively titled "Chainmail Bikini," for reasons explicated in the show. Unfortunately, I (Fraser) have had a busy week. My wife and I are buying a house, and my sister and her family dropped by a day earlier than planned--so the time I had set aside for editing disappeared. The new episode should be up next week.

5. Resources
No SEP news this episode--everything's different this time around, so instead, how about a list of resources for your military game? Yeah, lots of SEP stuff in there. Still, check out the reviews--it's good stuff!

RPGNow: d20 Modern/Military: If you're looking for d20 military stuff, this is where it's at--for download!

Covert Forces: A resource for any spec ops campaign. Filled with flavour but very little crunch.

Canada's CSRS: This short PDF tells all about a fictional, Canadian spec ops unit. Easily adaptable to any military or paramilitary force.

B&G2: In Her Majesty's Service: A supplment for RPG Object's Blood & Guts 2: Modern Military all about the spec ops and elite forces from the United Kingdom.

B&G2: Military Training Manual: The core book for any d20 military campaign. Full of classes, feats, and skill applications to give your campaign the proper feel and your players the proper tools.

B&G2: Special Operations Command: The B&G2 spec ops supplement for the United States. Packed with templates for a wide variety of SOC units, from Airforce Combat Controllers to Delta Force.

Teams SAS: A ready-made SAS Patrol along with notes on equipment.

The Counter Terrorism Assaulter: A prestige class from SEP's acclaimed Roles & Classes line. This one's a high-speed, low-drag door kicker, ready to clear the room and save the day.

The Special Operations Marksman: A prestige class from SEP's acclaimed Roles & Classes line. Not just a deadshot, but part ghost and part predator, invisibly stalking prey on the battlefield.

Spec Ops Recce: A prestige class from SEP's acclaimed Roles & Classes line. When your survival is at stake, whether in the jungle or the desert, this master of recon will keep you safe and get you where you need to go.

And for adventures:
The Albenistan Series: A collection of 3 adventures, which can be purchased separately, that combine in a single story arc. First you find out about a threat, then you find out things are worse than you thought, then you pretty much have to save the world . . . or at least one little part of it. Spec ops at its most exhilarating! Would I lie to you?

Hey All

Okay, big delay and I'm sorry about that. We won't have a regular show for you this time, but I will get something up to hold you over until the next real episode. I mean, I know you can't go on without your Accidental Survivors fix.

Give me some sugar, baby.

Ottawa Game Publishers Podcast: Alien Invasion Available

Source: Ottawa Game Publishers Podcast

In case the mention of Alien Invasion from episode 2 whet your appetite, you might be interested to know that it's out. Alien Invasion is now available at RPG Now.

I'm a little biased, as I got a preview copy and had David Gallant--one of the editors--as a guest host on episode 2, but I have to say that Alien Invasion looks good. The layout is really eye-catching. I've only skimmed it rather than read through it completely, but it looks pretty darn interesting. There's a great history of alien contact that got me hooked. If you are running an X-Files type campaign, or even an Independence Day campaign, you'll find plenty of good background info here.

See ya around

Ottawa Game Publishers Podcast: Finally saw Crank

Source: Ottawa Game Publishers Podcast

Hey All, Fraser here

So I finally saw Crank, the movie we talked about in Episode 1. It's a fun movie, much in the vein of Transporter 2 (which also had someone injected with a sci-fi serum). It's easy, escapist entertainment, but it's not great. If you want to see Jason Statham kicking butt (and having sex in front of Korean schoolgirls), then check it out. There really isn't much to mine from this movie for your campaign, but Statham does a great job of playing tough guy.

Hey All

Figured that this might be of interest to those who enjoyed our last podcast. IMDB.com has a new Casino Royale trailer up. Looks good. Lots of action and no hints of any silly gadgets. Could this be a return to old-style Bond action? We can hope!
