Fiery Dragon: Gen Con Update!
By Todd Secord
Fiery Dragon has survived another Gen Con! As is always the case, it was great to see all the amazing people that we have the honour to call friends every year. A special thank you for an awesome time from our buds at Green Ronin Publishing, Drive ThruRpg, Onyx Path Publishing, and Monte Cook Games, as well as to each and every other friend that we shared a handshake and a laugh with. You all never let us crazy gaming Canucks down! First off, it was great to see Chris, Nicole and Hal from Green Ronin to discuss the progress of Freeport: City of Adventure for the Pathfinder RPG. It’s pretty exciting to be working with them to be sure. And just as exciting was to see the cover art for the project at Wayne Reynolds‘ booth. It’s hard not to be a fan of Wayne. His dynamic style and tremendous sense of detail has become the face of fantasy art as we presently know it. Just a fantastic image and very inspiring. Cheers to Green Ronin and Wayne!
Sushi, me hearties?
Well, it’s funded! The Green Ronin Kickstarter: Freeport for the Pathfinder RPG has been officially backed! This is great news to be sure, both at Green Ronin and for us here at Fiery Dragon. We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the fans out there that participated in the funding. Furthermore, we would like to give a shout out to all the great designers and products that have come aboard since the beginning of the campaign. Cheers to all!

Movie Inspiration #3: Skyfall, Mission Derivative

2012 was a really odd year for movies for me. Potentially, it should have been a bumper crop of never ending cinematic organisms but luckily I’ve trained myself not to get my expectations up tooooo high. For instance, Dark Knight Rises. Though flawed, it is still very entertaining, and could be forgiven since it was following arguably the best comic book movie thus far in its predecessor, Batman: Let’s remind Burton and Schumacher how much they can suck 2. I also loved the Avengers.
Unfortunately, after those two, Hollywood started to make it real easy to be cynical…
This is not a Wizard. Nor a dwarf. It’s a big rubber head.
Prometheus…beautiful, stylish and an absolute mess. Not a great year for Ridley so I’ll stop there. Then there was the Hobbit…wanted to love it, hoped to love it, but got really annoyed with it…and expectedly so. And lastly, and just as frustratingly, there was Skyfall.
