Any artists out there?

A friend of mine is moving and they’re trying to get rid of stuff and raise a bit of money through selling some of his wife’s Everyday Pose books, these books are Japanese. Apparently these books are very rare, and they look pretty cool, and I’d love to look at them, but they’re of no serious interest to me. I don’t know if there’s anyone out there who draw or base art on the human form, these might be very useful. If you aren’t interested in these and you know any other artists that you know might be interested in them, please point them in this direction.

The books have individual listings, you can see the others by clicking on the seller’s ID.

Kickstarter: Ace of Aces reprint

Rick Loomis of Flying Buffalo is running a Kickstarter campaign to reprint a limited number of Alfred Leonardi’s Ace of Aces, the World War I aerial combat flip book game.  This is a game that I definitely believe deserves being reprinted, it’s only running for another eight days and has not yet made its funding goal, so I’d like to encourage you to make a contribution and help get this project funded if you enjoyed playing this game back in its day.

Yet Another Kickstarter: Race to Adventure, the Spirit of the Century board game!

Spirit of the Century, or SotC among some groups, is a Fate-based RPG in the pulp genre.  Every player was born on January 1, 1901, the first day of the 20th century.  Every player is also very gifted along the lines of Doc Savage or Buckaroo Banzai.  They’re not superheroes except along the lines of Batman, but they’re very good at what they do.

The game is also extremely good for pick-up games with as every character’s background is linked in some way with every other character’s background.

Well, the good folks at Evil Hat have made a board game based on SotC where the players run around the world in a competition to get their passports stamped, but in the spirit of Around The World In 80 Days and The Great Race and such nothing is going to be so simple as landing in Bangkok and getting your passport stamped.

It looks pretty cool and I think it’s worth supporting.
