Like Jason and Michael, we have risen once more

Cries of torment:: Korpiklaani- Wooden Pints
We were down, but we're back. The AMPUTHEATRE site is now back up- under the website that is currently making the game: Chenille Macabre.

And if you haven't seen the figures I'm currently selling... well, what are you waiting for?

My site went down at the worst possible time- right after one of the most lucrative horror shows I've ever done. But now that it's BACK, I can announce games of AMPUTHEATRE at the following shows:

SIMCON 2009 at the University of Rochester
March 28th, from 12pm - 4pm
March 29th, from 9:30am - 2pm

UBCon 2009 at the University of Buffalo
April 18th, from 9am-6pm
April 19th, from 9am-5pm

At the UBCon I'll also be selling some Chenille Macabre work over at the table, with my good pals Bags That Bite and Bent Castle Workshops.

...It is SO GOOD to be back online. That's one less albatross around my neck...

So yes, there are figures for sale. The rulebook is coming soon. I just wanted the figures up on Friday the 13th, so that could be a neat point of trivia for the eventual Wikipedia entry. :P Of course, what with there being a second Friday the 13th in March... duh...

I'm putting the last few touches on the book as we speak. It's looking to be a 36-page rulebook. I've adding the new rules that I've posted about. I tweaked two things:
  • I've removed the Guard Breaks and Parries. I just never remembered we had them.
  • Reversing a Resist (Arcana-based) Attack lets you perform an Onslaught against your Attacker. It just makes a lot more sense than them falling down as in the past. I love the idea of whipping around and slicing open Crossface's throat when he's trying to convince you to go beat up perceived agents of Satan. "Fuck THAT noise!"
So don't worry, the game will still run smoothly.

Off now to go update all of my links. I owe Jen Beaven a huge round of thanks. I'll start with a link to her Pencognito strip, and work my way up from there.

Oh great! You're going to be at both cons. Sweet! So will I.

Is there a possibility of buying a few of your very cool miniature figures (I love the D&D parodies) at SimCon? Or shuold I save my pennies for UBCon?

I can easily point to at least five of your miniature figures I'd be happy to give a home to...

And I really have to find out if I can convince anyone down here to play the game. The idea of a rulebook, a homemade board, and a rulebook is appealing. I'd just have to build my own Yeti somehow...

Whichever you prefer! It might just be me at the SIMCON- at UBCon, I'll have definitive vendor space.

I will be making a Yeti for the site soon... although now I'm curious to see Heartless Rose try her hand at one in the new figure scale... ;)
