The Small Setting

Sorcerer's Skull - Thu, 10/07/2021 - 11:00


For some reason, the idea of a small setting has long had some appeal for me. Something like the British Isles or any other single country, sure, but also even smaller, like an single province of a country (Averoigne, Poictesme)--or smaller still, like an immense Gormenghast-esque castle and its environs.

Obviously, hexcrawling has limited to no utility in a setting like this, and it's probably not grist for a long term campaign, if you do the usual D&D activities. But you know, most campaigns I play in or run don't seem to be long term enough that that would create into a problem. My Land of Azurth campaign will be 7 years old this month, and while the players have now ventured beyond Yanth Country, I feel like we could easily still be in that terrain (roughly the size of the state of Georgia), allowing for the brief planar, time travel, and underground other-realm excursions they've done.

What's the appeal to me of the small setting? I'm not exactly sure. Perhaps it's the thought of accreting a lot of granular detail in one part of a setting in a way players will actually find interesting versus that detailed city supplement approach where most of it never gets used. There's also the possibility of developing more of a robust "supporting cast" and layering in mysteries big and small. It also makes adventure locales less likely to be one-offs, encouraging the portrayal of them as living, changing places.

In short, maybe, it's bringing some of the aspects of the megadungeon to a setting that isn't centered around a megadungeon.

JUST BEYOND: MONSTROSITY will be published through the company’s award-winning KaBOOM! imprint, where R.L.

This was followed up with the release of Fear Street in 1989, which remains the best-selling YA series in history with more than 100 books published thus far, and Goosebumps in 1992, which transformed Stine into a worldwide celebrity. The series was soon adapted as a hit TV series and recently returned as a blockbuster film starring Jack Black in 2015 from Sony/Columbia Pictures, with a sequel released in 2018. Stine has continued to create exciting new horror concepts for younger audiences each year, in turn becoming one of the most successful American novelists of all time.

Acclaimed Author Nicholas Mennuti and Legendary Artist Howard Chaykin Collaborate on the Visionary Sci-Fi Novella SCRAP

First Comics News - Wed, 10/06/2021 - 18:30

(October 6) This fall, digital publisher NeoText will publish SCRAP, a visionary new sci-fi novella from acclaimed author Nicholas Mennuti and legendary artist Howard Chaykin.

Meet Travis Schrader. He works nights at a data center housing the world’s most secret and sensitive information, which might sound exciting on the surface. But in practice, Travis is nothing more than a glorified midnight watchman with an advanced degree in engineering, plodding along on a fifteen-dollar-an-hour temporary contract. In short, Travis isn’t exactly changing the world. But who knew that aimlessly wandering through life meant you can be purchased by the highest bidder in the year 2431?

Travis is about to find out when he’s whisked from the data center to the future, where he is now the property of the world’s most powerful corporation and forced to do their bidding with no questions asked. He learns that his empty existence has placed him just far enough outside the progression of the space time continuum that his life can be manipulated without setting off a butterfly effect, as such, he has been “conscripted” as the company’s literal property, sold like corporate scrap. Now he will be sent out on dangerous missions to serve the interests of an elite super-class warring for the last few remaining spoils, and whose lives are far too important to risk.

Before it’s too late, Travis must realize that playing it safe in the future is no longer an option, if he wants to stay alive in the present.

The visionary sci-fi novella SCRAP will be published on October 12, 2021.

REVIEW CORNER: What If Spider-Man Joined The Fantastic Four?

First Comics News - Wed, 10/06/2021 - 17:03
What If…? (Vol. 1) # 1 (What If Spider-Man Joined The Fantastic Four?) Writer: Roy Thomas Penciller: Jim Craig Inker: Pablo Marcus Letterer: John Constanza Colorist: Janice Cohen Cover Date: February 1977 Rating: With the season finale of “What If…?” now on the horizon, I’ll wrap up a series of What If reviews by taking a look at the one issue that started it all What If..? # 1 from 1977, where it asks the question What If Spider-Man Joined The Fantastic Four? In Amazing Spider-Man # 1, Spider-Man tried his hand at joining the FF in hopes of gaining funds and joining the team. While it didn’t work out, in this new reality Spidey suddenly gets called back by The Invisible Woman, then as the FF is renamed The Fantastic Five, quickly gaining triumph of the enemies they defeated, it doesn’t take long before Susan Storm finds herself the odd woman out as she spends most of her time sitting behind a monitor but things take a drastic turn as she ends up in the arms of Namor, The Sub Mariner (Who’s always carried a torch for Sue). The story itself, written by Roy Thomas (One of the most iconic writers to come out of Marvel during the 70s), does a great job of taking the early adventures of both Spider-Man and The Fantastic Four and blending them into a story that not only revels in its action but helped kick off this unique concept that’s been a staple of Marvel for many decades. I always felt like Spider-Man should be on a team, especially one like the FF that explores the unknown. So in my opinion, seeing them together works well on all levels; Not going to lie, the ending is pretty sad (**NO SPOILERS**) but this story delivered something very out of the ordinary, but did it with flair and made us wonder what would happen if things turned out differently. Well, that about does it for my series of “What If…?” reviews, next week I’ll be back with another review so thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.

How to Deposit And Withdraw Money in Ethereum Casinos

First Comics News - Wed, 10/06/2021 - 16:07

In the past few years, casino operators have embraced cryptocurrency transactions. Along with Bitcoin, Ethereum is a popular method due to the security and convenience it provides. Players who value privacy and flexibility enjoy fast, anonymous, and reliable transfers. Here is how Ethereum deposits and withdrawals work.

Where to Play

Some of the most popular casino Ethereum sites are licensed in Curacao. Websites approved by the UKGC or MGA usually accept payments in Ethereum, but do not allow you to gamble with it — i.e., you have to convert your coins into their primary fiat currency like GBP or USD.

Making a Deposit

To get started at a cryptocurrency-friendly casino, visit its virtual cashier page and send a transaction from your Ethereum wallet. This requires its address or a specific QR code.

Open your wallet and go to the “Send” section. Enter the address of the recipient (the casino will provide it to you) and the amount. Confirm the transaction, and your funds will arrive in the casino account in a few minutes.

Ethereum-Only Casinos

Aside from hybrid websites combining Ethereum with common payment methods like Visa or PayPal, you can find purely ETH casinos where smart contracts replace random number generators. The apps are connected to the blockchain, so the decentralized network delivers random outcomes. On the downside, the number of these games is very limited, and the operators are not licensed by respectable regulatory bodies.

How to Withdraw to Ethereum

To collect any winnings, you need your personal recipient address, which is found in the wallet app. Open the wallet and look at the “Receive” section for this information. Make sure you pick the right cryptocurrency, or the payment will fail. Select Ethereum to see the address. It is a string of digits and letters, both lowercase and uppercase. You can also find the sequence in your transaction history.

Go to the cashier page of the casino site. Paste the wallet address in the corresponding field, specify the amount and confirm the transfer. After the operator approves the request, you will get your funds almost quickly. Normally, this takes a couple of minutes unless the blockchain is particularly “busy”.

Overview of Fees

The biggest drawback of transfers in Ethereum is the fee, although it is relatively negligible. You have to contribute to the network that processes the transactions. If you want your transfers to get high priority, you should be okay with higher charges. Gamblers can increase or decrease the fees themselves. However, the default setting is enough in most cases.

Gamblers should understand that the fee is charged by the network, not the casino operator. Find out about any potential extra costs and transaction fees before creating an account.

High Withdrawal Limits

Unlike regular casinos, platforms that accept cryptocurrency allow you to deposit and withdraw higher amounts. This makes Bitcoin and Ethereum particularly attractive for high rollers.

Ethereum Bonuses

Almost every Ethereum-friendly casino offers deposit bonuses. Usually, they take the form of match bonuses. The operator adds a fixed percentage of your transfer to the balance. The biggest advantage is that the value of Ethereum bonuses is often much greater. The rewards may include free spins, free cash, cashback, VIP benefits, tournaments, etc.

Almost all conventional sites limit the maximum size of their rewards. This does not usually happen with Ethereum bonuses, as their upper limits are much higher or unlimited. The more you deposit, the more you will get.

To Sum Up

Online casinos that accept Ethereum offer quick, secure, and anonymous transactions. This form of gambling is only available in some countries, and pure Ethereum games are fairly limited. First-time users may find it daunting to set everything up, but the benefits outweigh the cons. The volatile nature of the altcoin means that your bonuses and deposits may gain value over time.
