New Fate World: Sails Full of Stars, Humble Bundle Featuring Company of Heroes 2 and Warhammer 40,000 – Dawn of War Games, Diamond Youth – Thought I Had It Right
New Fate World: Sails Full of Stars by Don Bisdorf
I’m always intrigued to see what comes out of Evil Hat Productions’ Patreon-fueled Fate Worlds. This time, it is Sails Full of Stars from Don Bisdorf (author of Stone of Names). Like all of the Fate World supplements (I believe) it is available on a pay-what-you-want basis (with a suggested price of $4.00). Sails Full of Stars is 50 pages long, with the first 2/3 of the supplement containing setting material for the Fate World, and the last third containing an adventure. The world itself is set in the 19th Century but, although it refers to itself as steampunk it is not ‘traditionally’ so. Instead of a world of sky captains, the steampunk technologies in Sails Full of Stars have enabled space travel. I like the fact that it’s pretty setting heavy, providing a good feel for the world, with the largest amount of crunch in the supplement revolving around the Rheoships that the players will likely be crewing.
Humble Bundle Featuring Company of Heroes 2 and Warhammer 40,000 – Dawn of War Games
If you are not like me and somehow need more games to play, I found my time spent with the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War games to be very well spent. I mention this because those games, along with the Company of Heroes games, are featured in a new weekly Humble Bundle. At the pay what you want level you get: Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies: Oberkommando West, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Game of the Year Edition, Company of Heroes Complete Edition and the Company of Heroes 2 Soundtrack. If you beat the average, you also get: Company of Heroes 2, Company of Heroes 2 – The Western Front Armies: US Forces, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Retribution, and Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. Finally, if you pay at least $15, you also get Company of Heroes 2 – Ardennes Assault. Like I said, I found the Dawn of War games to be very good. They are basically realtime strategy games where, instead of controlling an entire army you only control a small company of units that level up as you play through the games. I believe (although I have not played them) that the Company of Heroes games are similar. Space Marine, on the other hand, is a third-person shooter. It’s quite a lot of games and I really did enjoy the Dawn of War series, so if you’re looking for something to play, it might be worth a look.
