Masters of the Forge - Episode 038 - Adeptus Mechanicus Part 1

The Adeptus Mechanicus is a huge topic and even discussing them over three episodes won't do more than scratch the surface. However, we've received multiple requests for this topic and it warrants coverage. In this first installment, we cover the Mechanicus in general and in brief. After that, we discuss the novel, Adeptus Mechanicus: Skitarius by Rob Sanders.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 037 -  Joining the Greater Good

What would you say to a powerful alien race who promised you health, safety, and stability under their benevolent rule? What would you say to an alien race who, surprisingly, doesn't open negotiations with exterminating a few key cities on your world, although they have every opportunity to do so? It's hard not to listen to them in a savage Galaxy full of terrors. This fortnight we discuss the species who have accepted the Greater Good to some degree.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 036 - Death Worlds

We hear about Death Worlds throughout the lore of 40k. We know that they're dangerous places, but a Deathworld goes beyond simple danger. To live in such a place is to constantly face death, sometimes quite literally in the face. In some cases, these worlds have non-circumstantial similarities. Others are strange and defy the imagination.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 033 - Private, Little Wars

This fortnight we're talking about bringing the world of 40k to life by sweating the small stuff in skirmish-level games. In particular, we discuss the Beta Test rules of the 7th Edition version of Special Operations: Killzone.

We would greatly appreciate it if our listeners could take some time and playtest these alpha rules for Killzone. By the next episode, we should be able to get a beta release out after your playtest data. Please be frank about the things you like and do not like; you will not hurt our feelings.  We want this game to be as good as it can be, whether we adopt suggestions or not.

Also, please send us

Masters of the Forge - Episode 032 - Kor Megron's Warband vs Ultramarine's 2nd Company

After the Horus Heresy, the Traitor Legions dispersed throughout the Galaxy in search of many things, but vengeance chief among them. Kor Megron, a former Word Bearer, has sought nothing less than the destruction of his own symbols of adoration for and deification of the Emperor of Mankind. The Ultramarines 2nd Company are the symbols of greatness as dictated by the Codex Astartes. They are greatest among equals. These two factions find themselves clashing on the field of battle at the Eagle Gate in a bloody, yet decisive confrontation.

Masters of the Forge - Episode 031 - Narrative Objectives

There is little more important to formulating an in-depth narrative for your games than the nature of your army’s objectives. Narrative Objectives break from the usual 6 Mysterious Objectives in order to facilitate telling a more specific and compelling story. In this episode, we provide a few ideas for more interesting narrative Objectives and, hopefully, plant the seeds for ideas of your own. We also take a look at a listener's army background.
