Brimstone: Combat In Hell

Brimstone is a set of free wargames rules for 15mm to 28mm skirmish battles in Hell. Written by Anreas Udby, the premise is that the Prince of arkness has been slain, and that his lieutenants are battling for control of the underworld. It's cleverly written, with lines like this:

Panic. There�s also no such thing as morale in Hell. Face it -- to have morale, you really need to have such a thing as happiness. In Hell, there are really just shades of panic, hopelessness, and utter despair.

Another part I like is that it turns out that Hell has a caste system and the various denizens won't always play nice together.

All in all, an imaginative work.

Painting Ethnic Skin TOnes

Cool-Mini-Or-Not has a good article with pictures on painting non European skin tones. There are photos of the various peoples, along with virtual paint chips and a discussion of how to replicate those tones.

Seventh Sanctum Random Name Generators

Back in the heady days of first edition D&D, there were a lot of small companies publishing books that essentially were nothing more than lists of names, treasures, monsters, etc. During a game, you used these lists to randomly generate filler for your adventures.

The Seventh Sanctum is essentially a computerized version of these old random generator books. There are random generators here for just about anything you can imagine: pirate ship names, character names for a variety of settings, superhero powers,, equipment lists, dark rituals, several evil sounding name generators, a magical girls, a martial arts move generator, and more!

I spent way too much time playing with this one.
