Thus ends May of the Dead.

As I'm sure you're aware, Kev's Lounge participated in a big interblog carnival held by the guys over at the Going Last podcast, with these little Gothic Coffins. I can't really speak for the other guys who participated, but at least from where I'm standing, it was a huge success, bringing in literally hundreds of new visitors to this humble blog of mine! So this is just a little open letter to say "thanks a million, guys!" to Ian and Justin for organising it, and to all the other participants for making it interesting.

If you haven't already, you can find the Carnival's page over here. There was a ton of great content on there, and I'm really proud to have been among such great company! I heartily recommend that you go and have a look.

There were a lot of highlights on there, but rather than rewriting the whole list, I'm just going to mention a couple of cool blogs I discovered as a result of this little event.

Terrain Wench Productions

The Terrain Wench is a very talented terrain artist from Wisconsin who produces some really amazing stuff. Her blog is filled with incredibly detailed logs of how she went about creating various terrain pieces, and is filled with awesome tips and tricks for beginners and experts alike!

This windmill is particularly impressive! You can see how she made it here.


Fantasy Paper Miniature Models

Eddnic over at FPMM designs some really awesome 3d paper miniatures, which he gives away for free over at his blog. He's got some pretty interesting pieces over there including a couple of dragons.


There are, of course,  many others up there, and you really should go have a look! Thanks again Going Last.

Kev's Lounge Counters MegaBundle

We've created a bundle of all the free and premium Kev's Lounge Counter Sets, and it's over at Papercraft Dungeon right now. Until the end of June it will be going for just 99c, which is what you'd pay if you got all of the sets individually, but as an added bonus, you will get the Brilliant Cut Diamonds currency counters, which are only available through this bundled deal! All in all, the bundle includes artwork for 61 unique counters for use in your games.

Get the Kev's Lounge Counters Megabundle at Papercraft Dungeon now!

 The Brilliant Cut Diamonds currency counters, exclusive to this bundle:

There comes a point in every campaign, when buying a magic item suited to your level means that you'd need to spend millions of Gold Pieces. So you head off to Magic Items 'R' Us with your 20 000 bags of holding packed to bursting with gold, along with 20 000 porters to carry it all and walk out with your new, shiny Vorpal Sword of Elder God Slaying +17... Or you could skip the porters and bags of holding, and just deal in diamonds. This set of counters is designed to make it easier to keep track of your diamonds in Dungeons and Dragons and other fantasy RPGs. I've designed them in such a way as to make it very easy to get nice attractive double sided counters that are perfectly lined up. Single sided counters are a pain when they're upside down!

The set comes in 5 denominations: 1, 5, 10, 50 and 100. You'll want at least 4 each of the 1's and 10's for each player and a bucket load of 100's if your players are the Rockefellers of your fantasy realm and need to keep track of really high volumes of cash.

Gothic Coffins - Papercraft scenery for RPGs and tabletop miniatures games

Here we go with a brand new set of papercraft scenery for RPGs and miniature wargames! Going with a dark and gothic theme, that ties in with the May of the Dead Carnival we're participating in, we have some really great-looking, gothic-style coffins!

A single printing will give you 5 sealed caskets, and 5 open ones.  The detail is sharp and intricate, and highly customisable, thanks to layers in the PDFs. There are literally hundreds of possible combinations. There is also a fully illustrated instruction manual optimised for screen view to save you ink, and bookmarked for easy navigation.

Get the Gothic Coffins at Papercraft Dungeon now!  Free until the end of May 2012!

These nifty little caskets are suitably scaled for use with 28-30mm miniatures.They will add a ton of atmosphere next time your adventuring party goes crawling around in a dank, dark crypt.

Wyrdcrystal Counters for RPGs and other tabletop games


This set adds 6 beautiful new Wyrdcrystal tokens. These tokens were designed to be generic, colour-coded counters that can be used for a variety of purposes. They are good for keeping track of mana reserves in games that use that sort of system, or to indicate power-ups, or keep track of daily or encounter powers. They can also be used to represent literal power crystals in certain scenarios, (to enter a blue portal, a character must be carrying a blue crystal, for example) and they make for great objective markers in tabletop skirmish games.

 Download Kev's Lounge: Wyrdcrystal Counters at Papercraft Dungeon Free before 22nd of May, 2012!

The download contains 7 PDFs which provide artwork to print out and make double sided tokens. The first has all 6 tokens on a single page, while the remainder contain a single colour each, so if you, say, only want green crystals, you don't need to waste a lot of paper and ink to get them. The set is free before May 22nd, 2012, thereafter it costs only 99c.
