Do you hear the thundering of Giant Feet! The giant supplement is now a go for all lists at the Zoo! This is in addition to the 350 point Giant you get for Game three. Can you picture the Epicenes of Game 3 when you look out and see over 40 towering giants across the room?
The Tournament packet has been update and can be found at the bottom of the main page.
Note I and my Community take Covid Very Seriously, We will see where things are by October. As of now mask will be required in-doors, I will try and setup some outdoor tables (weather permitting). Refunds will be given up to the day of the even if you can’t make it or decide against it.
Friday Gaming at my place is still a go, and let me know if your from out of town and need a place to crash ;-).
I have not collected money for the Saturday Banquet, need to see what indoor dining is like as we get closer, I have some contingency plans.
Spots are filling up! Only a few left, though I’m sure there will be some flux. Please send in your Reg fee to lock in your spot (and pick your giant see Below). If you have registered and/or payed, please verify here:
Sorry if I’ve been bad at replies.
Bellow are pics of the complimentary “looking for a good home” 3D printed giants you get for Zoo attendance. You can pick one out as soon as you pay the reg fee. Note these mostly are experiments or Oopsy prints I have fixed. So will have some defects and or repairs with my Janky green stuff skills. Also many have drain holes needing a patch here and there. But heck, they are free, so Enjoy!
More pictures are here:
I will update the photo Key there as they are selected.
And I will update that with the available Giants as they are picked.
Q: I want More! Can I buy them?
A: Probably! Most of these I have license to sell (see giants page) and can print you a clean version at any size you want (Giant to huge to WTH is Alex up to over there). Some of these don’t allow selling (Like all of Raven Twin) but if you buy their STL file from my Minifactory, I can print it for you
Q Can you get this before the Zoo?
A:Yes, I can ship them if you want, usually costs $10-$12 to ship something this size. Or deliver if you are nearby
Q:What happens if I’m unable to attend but I am in possession of the giant (Covid Concerns or other)
A:You can return or I can charge you for it out of your refund. If its not a giant I am allowed to sell you will need to purchase the STL from the artist as well
Q. What happens If I don’t like the one I picked out.
A. You can swap out for another available, should be a few extra.
Sent an email out to all currently registered players with payment info the stuff below on 8/8/2021. Check your junk mail to make sure your getting my messages if you didn't get it (and are signed up)
Here is a little Infernal Zoo Update to all those currently registered. We are about 8 weeks away, and I’m showing 39 registered, so 1 open spot! That’s great news, though some of that list will flux a bit I’m sure. But If you have friends on the fence, tell them to sign up, I can still upgrade rooms…..! Spots will be secured with payment (more on that below). There is also a question about the giant supplement below so please check that out and reply with your answer or any other questions.
So Covid is still here messing with us, and we will adhere to all County and State guidelines. Right now that will be masks indoors for all, but hopefully that can change for the better in 8 weeks. Davis itself is a very safe conscientious town, we have had free testing whenever you want from the university. Back in June we had a 80% vax rate in part of the city. But regardless we all need to be diligent! We are adjacent to a park, and weather permitting I will try and setup a few tables outside to allow mask free playing for willing participants.
If for any reason you wish to get a refund of your Reg fee, I will give it to you. I know some people may have their own risk reward calculus, and others don’t wanna game in masks, either way its all good, and no questions asked!
Cash the day of is fine, and there is no deadline. But paying holds your spot, and you can pick your Giant! As noted before, I will be giving out 3D printed giants . In a few weeks I’ll send out a pic of your options and when you pay you can make sure to get the one you want. Some people have payed and I have marked the order they get to select. I have a variety of giants that match different armies (e.g. undead ones, Giant kroxigors, Huge Norse Bros, Sylvan elfy ones, Zombie giants, Norse dwarfy ones, etc) . After I send the pic out with the options though, you just get to pic after you have paid.
I’ll collect banquet money on Saturday, hopefully the venue is still good with any Covid Rules in Place. If not we will shift to my place (with a different cost). It is fun being down town though, so hopefully D’Veers Irish pub will work out.
If you wanna order any stuff form my 3D printing company for Zoo pick-up (yay no shipping!) it will be 10% off. Most of my orders these days are custom, so just shoot me an email with what your looking for. You may want spell cards, rule books, dice, and 9th age tape measures, just shoot me a line to make sure I have that stuff in hand. This is an extra time gig for me (pays for hobby travel!) so I will need a couple week lead time to make sure I get it all set.
The Website is www.frumiousfantasticalfoundry.com
There is a list of merchants I have a license for there, and I can print everything those guys have, even if pics arn’t up yet on my site.
And finally, please reply if you do or do not want to see the giant supplement allowed for every game. I have a bunch of funky stuff going on, so my thought was to limit even more newish rules. But, power to the people! Let me know what you want. Allowing the giant supplement would solve a bunch of issues with armies’ access to towering presence and my special objective cards, but I have allowances for that already. Note right now game 3 has a mandatory (Extra! ) giant supplement already, and your free to use the one you get with registration for this (painted or not). See the tournament packet up on the website for more details on the game 3 giants. Allowing the supplement would change your list, if you want, and giving you potentially mass ginat mayhem game 3.
The tourney packet is still draft. Feel free to comment.
So the 9th Age is roaring back as the US opens up.

Things to do around the area.
So if you have significant other traveling along, here are some things to do (other then adoringly watch you roll dice ; - ).
If your coming in early on Friday you might want to check out Old Sacramento. Has an old west feel. Nice Places to eat by the river (Rio City Café). Lots of Candy and an Amazing 3 story costume store (Halloween is coming ) called Evangelines: www.evangelines.com
Down town Davis is a nice place to hang out too, feel free to ask me for specific restaurant recommendations. We will be out an about that night. Also see the arboretum trail below if your there during the day.
On Saturday morning there is a giant farmers Market couple blocks from the Venue.
We are very close to UC Davis, and they have a lovely arboretum path for walking and looking for ducks, turtles, occasional river otter and you can see one of my bridges under construction haha.
Saturday Night 7 PM, we are gathering at De’veers Irish pub where I have a buffet setup, $15 a person. Most people attend this (Haikou contest and team challenge and is awarded) and significant others are more then welcome!
Feel free to comment if your bringing someone so others know too!
