Natalya is out.

My game distributor has Natalya available and shipping in the morning (My order will have to wait till next week). It’s hard to say when Operation: Hinansho will be out, but it should be in the next couple weeks.

In other news I just picked up a copy of Pulp History Devil Dog, and I’ll be writing a review in a couple days.

The FFG 4th Quarter Catalogue is here.

Fantasy Flight Game (FFG) publishes Tannhauser, and each year they send me the print version of their New Release catalogue.

P1010383

They also sent me their Special Product catalogue, which is for their books and other non-game items. Well I mention this only because it’s good indicator of what will be released soon. Will start with the special products, the Tannhauser novel was not featured which only confirms it will be delayed till the new year.

However, Operation: Hinansho, Natayla, and the Matriarchy Troopers were featured in the new release catalogue. So we should be seeing them all before the end of the year.

Blank Hero Character Sheets

Here are blank Hero style sheets for use to create custom characters for Tannhauser. Now there is one each for Union, Reich, and Matriarchy; with transparent sections for character art. The Shogunate one does not have a “hole”, because the character art is layered over the same background on all the Shogunate sheets.

These were produced from scans and may show minor flaws. The files are 600 dpi, so they’re quite big (click for larger view). Also I left some of the affiliation stamps in place so you don’t have to add any unless you want too.

Happy Turkey Day

It’s time here in the U.S. to give thanks for friends, family, and football.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Use Magic Set Editor to Create Tannhauser Equipment Cards

Wow that was a long title. But thanks to Warheart we can now use the Magic Set Editor to make cards for Tannhauser. You can get MSE Here, and you can get the necessary files for Tannhauser equipment cards Here.

Update: to make sure the card titles will go onto a second line if necessary you need to copy this FILE to the data/tannhauser.mse-game file of the Magic Set folder.

Custom characters and equipment just got a little easier.

New Tannhauser “Mythopoeia” Website Under Construction

I was planning to complete much more of this site before announcing it to the public, but I’ve haven't been well since the end of October.

So without delay here is the link to my new site: https://sites.google.com/site/tannhauserwiki/

And now I ask for help getting it finished, I’m looking for volunteers to help cut and past the text from the Mythopoeia PDF into the site articles. If you would like to help please follow the directions below.

First I would like all volunteers to create a Gmail account using this format (username).tannhauser@gmail.com

Then email submissions.miah000@gmail.com from the account you just created. make the subject “Volunteer”. I don’t need anything but your new address.

I will add you to the editors account (might take me 48 hours so be patient), then you can go to the site while logged in to Gmail, and you should be able to create new pages and edit old ones, if needed.

Once logged in it’s pretty easy to create new pages. First download the PDF from here: https://sites.google.com/site/tannhauserwiki/home/the-mythopoiea

Then follow these steps. Go to the A to Z section Here.

Select the the first letter of the article you want to add.

Then click the new page button, on the create new page page, type in the article name as it appears in the Mythopoeia (don’t cut and paste it, trust me), under select a template, pick “Entry”. Then make sure the “Put page under” option is set to the section you want. Then click “create” at the top.

On the new page, just cut and paste all the info from the article in to the second text box under the page title. For now don’t paste any images, and don’t worry about editing any of the info; we just want to get the stuff pasted in.

I hope all these directions are clear, but you can email questions to the email address above, and Google has a good help section.

Also ideas and suggestions welcome, and if anyone is a web designer with experience with Google’s scripting language, I’ll be happy to hear you ideas.

Thanks to all in advanced, hope to be hearing from a bunch of you in the coming weeks.

Penny for the Guy?

It’s Guy Fawkes Day/Night again, and what better holiday is there; it’s like Halloween, The Fourth of July, and St. John’s Day, all rolled in to one. It’s awesome. But sadly we don’t celebrate it here in America, because we still secretly hate you British oppressors, but that won’t stop me.

The Guy Fawkes Mask Version II, Bonus Token

The fifth of November, since I can remember,
Was Guy Faux, Poke him in the eye,
Shove him up the chimney-pot, and there let him die.
A stick and a stake, for King George's sake,
If you don't give me one, I'll take two,
The better for me, and the worse for you,
Ricket-a-racket your hedges shall go.

guy fawksnutral back

This seemingly ordinary Guy Fawkes mask, is imbued with the all the anger and madness of Fawkes himself. Somehow possessed, once worn it allow the wearer to psychically infuse his weapons with the enough power to blow up the House of Lords itself.

Hardware, Occult, : Once per game you may activate the mask by flipping this token face down. While active, whenever you make any roll, each Natural 10 you roll counts a 3 successes.

November Bonus Token: The Timekeeper

Spring forward, Fall back…

This gorgeous gold watch was constructed by a Swiss warlock, not just to measure time but to control it.

nutral backwatch

Hardware, Occult • Once per game, during your activation, you may flip this token face down; when you do so you must reset the board to the beginning of your activation. After doing so, you must immediately retake your activation.

Ending with a Fizzle and not a Bang

Well between my poor health, my two year old, and my old laptops death, Tannhauser month has slipped in to that good night, with nary a whimper.

But, it was far from a failure. With a record 7,541 page views, October was by far the best month the Tannhauser blog has ever had. And I would like to first thank all the readers, and especially those who sent in contributions for publication.

The November bonus token will be up this week, but other than that I’ll be taking a little more time off. Things should get back to normal in a couple weeks.

Thanks Again to Everyone.
