Gnomecast #9 – Game Reviews one

Welcome to the Gnomecast, the Gnome Stew’s tabletop gaming advice podcast. Here we talk with the other gnomes about gaming things to avoid becoming part of the stew. So I guess we’d better be good. Today we have Ang and myself, Chris. Today we are going to get right to the topic at hand which is a few short game reviews. This is something different than we normally do but we thought it’d be a nice change of pace and we might have been informed that the stew was getting a little stale which we believe meant do something different. SO. Here’s something different.

Streets of Avalon. Two – Lamplighter

Last time on the streets of Avalon our rogues find themselves with a box everyone seems to want after getting into a brutal fight with a hammerite and her thugs. They have Violet the hammerite bound and gagged but shapeshifting creatures appear to try and take box. Our rogues fight off a few of them but it seems there are more in the Iron Wheel. Vassar finds himself following a cat for answers.
