OGAM: Ragnarok

We played a new scenario for OGAM based on Ragnarok, the final battle between Norse Gods and the forces of chaos. We were with our friends from Macerata at RomaGioca, a gaming convention in Rome. This scenario will be in the next issue of Talespinner magazine. Here some photos took during the game.

A terrific Odin is being sculpted by the fine folks at Northstar. He comes with his entire menagerie, the wings on his helmet are optional add ons, and yes he has only one eye. We will let you know as soon as it is available. Here is a preview picture.

A bit of a podcast interview with Andrea Sfiligoi a bit of a podcast interview with me (OGAM’s Andrea Sfiligoi) on the ADW Games website.
Forgive the sound quality (I was on a bluetooth headset on skype and the neighbors decided that was the right moment to hang a few paintings on their walls!). And please forgive my accent, I hope I speak clearly enough.

Oh yeah, you’ll notice a mention of a certain Doggerland Skirmish game (based on SOBH but with enough tweaks to interest old hats, I hope) that I’m writing for them and that they’ll be kickstarting soon.

More about this tomorrow… I’ll point you to the full podcast when it is available.
