  1. Greetings One & All, I am back at it in November! October was a busy month, but things are smoothing out and I'll be back at it. More and more 3rd Edition is getting out into the wild. I'm still working on getting The Comic Shop to get a proper distributor for product... they're working on it. In the meantime, please come on out for demo games and Malifaux Fun! You can email me here in this event listing or contact me at ngolmo@gmail.com and we'll set something up. Pretty soon we're going to have either a Henchman Hardcore or Enforcer Brawl event. Looking forward to catching up about everything Malifaux and hearing from you! Catch You Soon! Be Well, ~James
  2. Greetings, ghouls and witches! Halloween is upon us, so it's high time I return to demonstrating Through the Breach! So if you're in Harstad, come to Harstad Fritidssenter (link is here ) the 29th of October, 2019, at 18.00/6 PM! We're starting at 19.00/7 PM. If you need directions, call Charnel/Ravn at +47 924 83 303 and we'll sort you out! Looking forwards to a SPOOKY session!
  3. Hi all, Looking at Through the Breach again since M3E's app came out and can see that we're still a bit behind on a couple of things. 1.) Obviously the cost of the app is heavily reliant on demand which there may not be a chunk of. But looking at even a character sheet with only the core rules creation options built in, and expansions costing some $$$ would be wonderful for players. 2.) The character sheet is still a little lackluster, I can see there have been some great advancements but there's definitely some room missing for magic users, and trigger explanations. Maybe even if we just have an additional page that had a bit more free-text space for more expansive writing of how rules work rather than just having room for the title and having to look it up elsewhere. 3.) For the love of all things...please can we get a full index page? With so many rules referencing others, and combined with the above point to not have somewhere to write out individual rules it causes pauses at almost every rule to scour the book for the reference. Even if it's just a printable sheet we can slip in the back of the great tome I think every player either side of The Great Breach would appreciate it. (Also you are loved, by so many and so much)
  4. Greetings All! September is upon us!!! I'll be at The Comic Shop this upcoming 9th of September and each Monday thereafter. I've received a lot of stuff from the GenCon Malifaux/Wyrd sale and am furiously assembling and painting up the new stuff. With Malifaux heating up across the world, I'd like to announce that between Fairbanks and Anchorage, we've got enough players that we're going to hold events to qualify for the Nationals. More information to come on this. Looking forward to seeing you all at The Comic Shop and anywhere else we might be able to get a Demo Game going See you there! May the Red Joker look kindly upon you And may the Black Joker stay hidden and forgotten! HA! All the Best ~James
  5. After a short break, Through the Breach is back in Lubbock, TX! Games will be played every other Thursday (starting 9/5/2019) at Stormcrow games at 7:30pm! Sessions will be a combination of Penny Dreadfuls and One Shots!
  6. Greetings All! August is now upon us and I am back from my trip to ORIGINS Game Fair '19 and also to Japan. Things have been heating up with the release of Malifaux 3rd Edition (M3E) and I'm super pumped to be running demos and events. While on vacation and in Japan I played numerous games of M3E and I am continually impressed by this edition. A good friend of mine who'd been away for a couple of years was able to step right back in to full games without trouble. High praise from him as well with how great the new edition played. I'll be at The Comic Shop here in Fairbanks each Monday for Demos and throughout the week adhoc. A new friend designed the art/layout for a new poster display and it's already working. See you there! May the Red Joker look kindly upon you All the Best ~James
  7. Hi guys, Some friends and I were testing out the idea of running a through the breach campaign. It's a fun RPG and we recorded our test game to see if it was something we'd like to maybe turn into a series. We're now seeing how many people we can find, that would be interested in a dedicated custom TTB adventure. Please let us know what you think either here or via the Youtube comments, apologies about the audio levels. We had some technical issues which affected the whole recording sadly but it kinda clears up a little around 30 minutes in. Enjoy

  17. Greetings, My gaming group and I have recently finished playing a TTB adventure. It was the adventure found in Wyrd Chronicles Issue 33; Worked to Death.

Cheers Sniper

  25. SPOILERS!SPOILERS!SPOILERS! From the diary of Dr. John H Watson. I came to Kamakura in my twilight years. Ostensibly to serve the British military once again, however, if my erstwhile companion were still alive he would have claimed I came to Kamakura to die. He would probably have been correct. He often was. Following the dreadful events in London I wound up in Japan, seconded to a military hospital, treating the poor devils wounded in this dreadful conflict. It was here that I first met Abel Negasi, a sailor in the Abyssinian navy. During our first encounter I, rather erroneously, took the man for a member of staff, on account of his surgical limb replacement, and blathered on at him for a full five minutes regarding the rather poor state of the facilities. It was only when he levelled a supremely cold stare at me and deadpanned, “So tell a doctor, doctor,” that I realised my error. Following our rather dreadful introduction, and my hasty, but heartfelt, apologies we became acquainted. Not really friends, per se, but certainly not strangers. I inquired after the nature of his augmentations and was dismayed to learn of his horrific battle with a host of piscine terrors. I surmised that these pelagic nightmares were the self-same monstrosities responsible for the attacks on London and elsewhere around the globe. During the following days we spoke often. I regaled him with tales of my time in London and the adventures I often found myself embroiled in. I flatter myself when I say I believe Abel to have been quietly impressed with my past. Although I was not his physician, Abel often spoke to me about his convalescence. In particular he mentioned his concerns regarding his recent blood transfusion and the peculiar dreams he had experienced ever since. I examined him and found him hale and hearty. I, therefore, concluded Abel must be suffering from a spiritual malady. Something quite outside my purview. My dearly departed wife was often of the opinion that matters of the soul were best dealt with in surroundings more conducive to meditation and reflection than a doctor’s surgery and so I suggested to Abel he visit one of the local temples, perhaps converse with a priest. Upon discovering that my new companion spoke no Japanese, I resolved to accompany him and act as translator. The Temple we selected was not far from the hospital and a brisk walk in the morning sun seemed to lift a little of the malaise that had settled on my companion. We arrived in short order and took a moment to savour the sight that greeted us. The temple itself was a simple affair, lacking many of the accruements one might expect. However, any deficiency of decoration was more than made up for by the presence of the great obsidian statue of the Buddha. It towered over us, a monument to the craftsmanship of its sculptor and the power of a people’s faith. I observed several other people entering the temple via a large red Tori arch and, along with Abel, followed suit. Within the temple proper we were greeted by a slight Japanese fellow dressed in the simple shift of a monk. As we nodded our own greetings I saw that a number of our fellow visitors were all dressed in similar fashion, although each of these fellows also carried a simple satchel and brightly painted mask. I inquired with the monk, whose name I learned was Sengai, about the need for ceremonial clothing. He politely informed me that no such stipulations were necessary and offered to bless myself and Abel. We acquiesced and moved further inside the temple. I left Abel for a while, certain that my constant presence was doing little to aid in his recovery, and made my away around the Buddha statue. I was struck by the large milky emerald set in the statue’s forehead like a third eye and resolved to inquire about it before we left. I noticed that the visitors who arrived ahead of us had now donned their masks and were beginning some type of ceremony. Perhaps the years of working alongside one the greatest investigative minds ever to grace the Earth had rubbed off on me, but something about the actions of these masked men and women seemed oddly wrong to me. It seems bizarre now, I am no scholar of the religious practices of Buddhism but I could see they were not praying. Instead, each of them was manipulating something concealed within the satchels they carried, and their body language spoke not of reverence or piety, but preparation and perhaps even malice. I found Abel where I had left him and confessed my misgivings to him. To my surprise he did not treat me like a senile old man desperate for a last hurrah of action before shuffling off this mortal coil. He told me that he had recently read of a queer religious sect responsible for acts of vandalism and violence directed at various temples around Kamakura. Could it be we were in the midst of such an act of malfeasance? Hurrying back to Sengai I told him of my suspicions and bade him fetch the authorities. The poor man went quite pale with the fright and begged me to stop the miscreants. I swore to him as member of the King’s Empire, and as a gentleman, that I would allow no harm to befall his temple. At that, he brightened, and hurried away. During my time with Sengai, Abel had kept watch on these sinister criminals. In my absence they had begun an odd monosyllabic chant in a language neither one of us understood. Unsure of how to proceed I cast my mind back and tried to think how my dear friend and literary muse would approach the situation. It was then I hit upon a plan. Bidding Abel to stand watch over me I approach the chanting group, attempting to look like tourist. I intended to ‘accidentally’ drop my doctor’s bag and stumble into the nearest criminal, hopefully dislodging their grip on one of the satchels and interrupting their ritual. I may have acted a little too zealously, as my stumble became a hard shove and the woman I barged into was sent flying, the contents of her bag spilling onto the ground for all to see. I saw, to my horror, that it was a bomb. Time seemed to freeze in that moment. I was back in Afghanistan, my leg bleeding like a stuck pig, staring death in the face. A bomb, right in front of me and primed to go off any second. It seemed that Holmes’ assessment of my purpose here in Kamakura was right after all. “Mary,” I whispered. The sounds of shouting and stamping feet shook me from my reverie in a most uncomfortable manner. The masked men and women were on their feet now and looked for all the world to be quite angry with me. The man to my left, a brute of man easily three inches taller than me and least half again as heavy, threw some sort of coarse powder at my face. As any aficionados of my literary work will attest, I am no stranger to violence. I twisted away, the powder cascading harmlessly off my shoulder. Still the man came on. He had produced a knife from somewhere on his person and proceeded to thrust it at me. My years as a dance partner to the Marquis of Queensbury may be long behind me but I was still celeritous enough to leap away. Clearly outmatched by my assailant I continued to back up. I produced my trusty B&D Pocket Revolver and shot him. Some of you reading this may be shocked at my willingness to shoot a man in cold blood, but I would rather bear the scars on my soul for my actions than allow another life to be lost through the lack thereof. Sadly, my aim had not fared as well as my reflexes in the long years of my life and my shot only winged the devil. Abel, howling like a demon, came roaring past me and threw himself into the fray. Where I was hopelessly outclassed in the arts of Pugilism, he was anything but. He laid about him with that pneumatic arm of his, making short, if gruesome, work of one of them. From somewhere behind me came resounding whoosh and out of nowhere a ball of fire, bright as the morning sun, flashed past me. It engulfed one of the masked men, setting his brown robes alight. A second, as shocking as the first, followed almost immediately after and consumed the crazed man in a hellish inferno. I glanced over my shoulder and saw a rough looking Chinese itinerant conjuring yet more flame from the aether. I have seen magic before, but never had I beheld it wielded so effortlessly, or with such devastating results. There was, of course no time to admire this man’s skill, or to wonder he had come from. The woman I had previously shoved aside in my bungling attempts at subterfuge came sprinting at me, fury and hate burning in her gaze. Once again my military training prevailed and the woman’s attempts to pierce my flesh with her knife failed. Dodging another swipe, I took discretion over valour and stumbled away from my attacker, I turned and fired on the run. My erratic flight spoiled my aim and for a second time my bullet merely grazed its target. Across the courtyard Abel was in fine form. He levelled another of the madmen with straight right before spinning quite expertly on his back foot and knocking a second unconscious with a furious back hand. In my panicked stumbling I had ended up quite close to the Chinese sorcerer and watched, fascinated as he hurled two more fireballs into the midst of our foes, immolating another victim. With a most profound sense of creeping dread I realised that my two comrades did not know about the bomb. I levelled my pistol at the wounded woman and fired again. This time my shot found its mark and she dropped like a stone. I began to run towards the discarded satchel. “Bomb!” I cried out, “They have a bomb!” Abel turned to look quizzically at me and took a face full of the sand like powder these criminals seemed so fond of. His flustered swings kept his opponents at bay but lacked any accuracy. The Chinese sorcerer jolted into action, sprinting forwards toward one of the dropped satchels. Horrified, I saw that each of the six bags contained a bomb. Frantically I ran to the closest of explosives and looked it over. My time in the military had never really covered bomb disposal so I grabbed a handful of wires and prayed there were no booby traps or failsafes. To my joyous surprise, the wires came away easily enough and the bomb stopped in its inexorable count down. My Abyssinian comrade had wiped the grit from his eyes, but his opponent had fled scooping up one of the fallen bombs along the way. Abel roared and gave chase. Meanwhile our mystery ally had made short work of two of the bombs with controlled bursts of flame from his fingertips. The remaining delinquent seemed desperate to get his explosives right up next to the statue of the Buddha. With Abel hot on his heels I levelled my pistol, tracked his movements across the temple square, and squeezed the trigger. He swayed slightly as the bullet hit him, then stumbled and fell. He did not rise. Swiftly and methodically the three of us disarmed the remaining explosives. Although I must confess my heart did not stop racing until Abel smashed the final bomb with one his iron shod boots. With my pulse slowly lowering and the breath in my lungs once more I approached our new ally, my hand extended in friendship. “My name is Dr. John Watson, and you sir, have my most profound thanks.” The man merely nodded and said, “Hu.” “Dr. John Watson,” I replied. Thinking perhaps the man did not speak Japanese. He shook his head and tapped himself on the chest. “Hu,” he said again. “I am Hu.” TO BE CONTINUED ...
