The Saving Throw
Sniping Nov. 22, 2006
Have a great Thanksgiving!

Mail Me | Contest #2 | Discuss | Roleplaying Forum

And so it begins. . .

It's a day before Thansgiving, and it's also the day for another Saving Throw to roll around. The contest is taking a week off due to the holiday, so instead you get a featured story from almost a year ago. Yes, in a couple of weeks, Saving Throw will be one year old.

The surprise I mentioned last week will be waiting another week, so this is another routine column. Our sound test curator sends in another prestige class, and I bring you news of a CCG going online and a new one coming out in 2007. With that, it's time for the column.

Featured Hall of Fame Story

At the Hands of Goblins by Matt "Wonderslime" Demers Dec. 1, 2005
Reaching back into last year, we get a story about a new player and an evil gamemaster. It's not a pretty combination.

 A Chaotic Card Game Coming in 2007

4Kids Entertainment has announced that it is producing a trading card game based on the company's animated TV series Chaotic. The game is scheduled to roll out in January with the website where players will be able to keep track of their collections virtually by logging the unique alphanumeric codes on their cards. The game's website will require passwords announced during the broadcast of the TV show in order to open certain areas. The company is planning to hold live tournaments at hobby and game stores in the first quarter of 2007 followed by the launch of the game to the mass market in April 2007. The game is scheduled to launch in Europe and Australasia in the first quarter of 2008.
