Christmas Eve With Full Moon Entertainment 2012

Christmas Eve is here again! This is a night of personal and family traditions, and I have several of my own. Now, continuing the Amazing RPG Fun Pad Christmas Eve Celebration tradition, I present to you the 2012 Full Moon Entertainment Christmas Eve Extravaganza! Here are some more trailers from one of my favorite B-Movie companies.

Based off an original concept by Jack "The King" Kirby!

Jack Kirby's original concept art as "Mindmaster"

And it's sequel

A corny concept but Phil Fondacaro makes a great Dracula

One of the later movies. How can you hate Murdercycle?

A sequel to the original Demonic Toys and the movie Hideous! 

I'd like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Keep up the great blogs and products you all do. Even if I don't comment a lot, on what you write,  I still appreciate all my friends and followers. And since it's Christmas Eve I love to give you a Christmas Carol so here's the Berlin Symphony Orchestra - Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy (Red Baron Remix). You all enjoy yourselves!

B-Movie Monday: Chistmas Mayhem

Welcome to another B-Movie Monday! With Christmas Eve only a week away, lets take a look at several trailers that have Christmas as a main theme in the mayhem.

Black Christmas is considered by many to be one of the precursors of the slasher genre. Featuring Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, and the Mighty John Saxon!


 I remember all the hell that was raised when this movie came out.


Surprisingly funny, Santa Slays tells the real origin of Santa. Featuring ex-wrestler Bill Goldberg and Robert Culp in his pajamas.

This Finnish import is worth checking out. There are some surprisingly creepy scenes in this one.


Everyone seems to forget that Gremlins is set during Christmas...

 Hope you're all getting your stuff done for the Holidays!

I Got The Blood & Treasure Complete Game Softcover

In the end it boiled down to two good reviews for Blood & Treasure (B&T) by Tenkar and Brutorz Bill and a Black Friday/Cyber Monday 30% off coupon for Lulu. That's why I bought a copy of the Blood & Treasure Complete Game Softcover from Lulu.

I've bought other games from B&T author John Stater, namely Mystery Men and Tales of the Space Princess. I enjoyed their blend of retro-clone fun and a willingness to adapt modern influences as well. The above reviews pointed out the blend of D&D editions that is the framework of B&T, and I realized that this what I was looking for. A bridge between editions that I can make monsters and magic that can easily be converted for other editions. Plus, I like how flexible the character classes are with plentiful examples of variant classes that expand the roleplaying possibilities.

Even without the coupon, B&T is a great value for the money. The 380 page tome is chock full of fantasy role playing goodness. The print is very small, but I work with small print so this isn't much of a problem for me. But you have pages and pages of spells, monsters, races, magic items and even monster templates from across the d20 SRD. Too use an old cliche, this may be the only book you'll need to run some great fantasy adventures.

It just hit me-I could use Blood & Treasure for a Fantasy Space game ala Spelljammer. I could use the naval rules in the book, say their for space travel, make up some weird space ships. There are plenty of monsters to use as aliens and encounters. I can use the planar rules for planets. I can call it Galaxseas...

Or I could just grab a few friends and pillage a dungeon. Sounds like fun.

B-Movie Monday: Movie Posters!

Yeah, it's been three weeks since my last post and I've got little excuse but a spell of sickness and the dawning of the holidays. In the meantime I picked up the Primeval RPG harcover by Cubicle 7 and John Stater's Blood & Treasure Complete Game softcover from Lulu when they had a 30% coupon. More about B&T down the road. But It's Monday, and that means it's time for B-Movie Monday here at the Amazing RPG Fun Pad.

And just cause I thought I'd bust out some cool movie poster art. Cause I can. ;)
