What do you love about D&D adventures? What do you hate? What would you like to see more of? What level makes them the most useful? What sort of tables and charts help out? It's going to be a little different for everyone, but still, Elderbrain is looking to create the Best D&D Adventure and they want your help. They've posted up an extensive survey and are asking gamers to partake.

Anyone who's watched Ancient Aliens knows that some ancient cultures had materials or ways of doing things that we don't have anymore. Though they'll try and tell you that it was aliens that did it. But really, sometimes information is just lost. Well, that can happen in your fantasy RPG games, too. Skirmisher Publishing brings these fantasic materials to your games in their Materials of Ancient Empires book. You can get your copy now.

Paizo is making their way looking through the Extinction Curse adventure path for Pathfinder. In this deep-dive, they are holding their breath and headed into Life's Long Shadows, the third volume in the group.

So, that previous article was an introduction to the Forgotten Waters App and how it will integrate with the game. In this preview, it's a more direct look at the app and actually how it looks and works as you're playing. Have yourselves a look.

Recently, a bunch of different governments put out updated guidelines for closings during the worldwide outbreak. Pretty much anything considered vital has been closed down. To comply with all these new regulations, Games Workshop is closing down their locations and to make sure that they're not spreading it via the mail, they're limited online sales as well.

Normally, the different monsters and other creatures added to RPGs are out there to attack the party in some form. But with how things are right now, Paizo thought about going a different direction by adding the Amabie to Pathfinder. This is a much more friendly character that your party can come across.

We're always looking to the future. Paizo certainly is, as they're planning on coming out with a new Beginner Box for Pathfinder in November. Is that a long way away? Sure it is. But I can't wait for it. That's my favorite time of year. But Thanksgiving aside, we'll also be able to pick up this new set to get your friends into the game quickly and easily.

Forgotten Waters, the upcoming storybook game from Plaid Hat Games, has an app that goes along with it. But how will it integrate with the gameplay? Is it require? What can you expect from it? You've obviously got questions and Plaid Hat Games has answers. They've posted up a little factoid about what you will be getting with the game's app.

Since, at the moment, we're not really supposed to be going out all that much, heading down to the LGS might not be the easiest thing to do. Well, if you're looking to get the latest books for the Legend of the Five Rings RPG, you don't have to leave the comfort of your plastic bubble. You can simply download Path of Waves and Sins of Regret from online now.

Welcome to Friday. Even though I don't really have much at all planned for the weekend, I'm looking forward to it. It's been a stressful week, as I'm sure everyone will agree. But we'll make it through, press on, and see better days ahead. I mean, it's Spring (up here in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway). Here's some appropriate music. And along with all your saved rations and non-perishable goods, let's nosh on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Blood Curse Dice Set Available From Kraken Dice, New Sorceress Miniature Available From Brother Vinni, and New Lion Helms Available From Puppets War.

Most of us are stuck inside. And while game sales is cool, it will still take a while for those games to get here. However, if you've got a printer, you can get a copy of The Fantasy Trip: Melee and start playing it right away, as Steve Jackson Games has put it up for free on their website. And if you do want to order some expansions, they're on sale for 50% off.

Saruman had spies everywhere. No matter where the Fellowship went, there was surveilance on them. Even the very birds of the air would report back to him. And that's who you can get for your forces now from Forge World. They've started taking orders for Crebain of Dunland. Head on over and get your name on the list to get them as soon as they're available.

buccaw!

It's really foggy out this morning. I really love fog. It's just pretty to me and gives everything just this bit of air of mystery. Granted, it's pretty harmless, unlike the Miasma that's descened over Europe in Eldritch Century. That's a lot more malevolent. How will your characters deal with the situation? That's up to you to find out. You can pre-order your copies of the game's core book now.

Not really sure about the new Explorer's Guide to Wildemount? Maybe you're not all that much a Critical Role person. You'd like to get a little look inside just what you'll get before you plonk down your funds. Well, that can be done as well as Roll20 has posted up a free preview adventure for it that you can add to your account and download now.

So, we're supposed to stay socially isolated during this pandemic. As such, getting together to game might not be really feasible. Thankfully, there's programs like Roll20 that seem custom-made for just such a scenario. But what if you want to try out the new Explorer's Guide to Wildemount? Well, fear not, as it's available electronically as part of your Roll20 account now. Head on over and pick yourself up a copy (digitally, of course).

For those of you out there that watch Critical Role and play Dungeons & Dragons, you'll be really excited for the Explorer's Guide to Wildemount. If you do just one or the other, you'll still possibly be excited for this book. This is a whole new realm for your characters to adventure around in, all based on the popular setting. You can pick up your copies now.

DGS Games, makers of Freeblades, was looking to heading to Adepticon up in Chicago. I wish I could've gone.

They've also got a quartet of new figures that you can pick up for your games now.

Halfway through. We're halfway through the week already. As always, that's never a complaint. You know how much I love my weekends. Even if it doesn't look like there'll be much to do.

I mean, who doesn't want to be a superstar? I want to be one. So you know I'm putting my name in the hat. You should too.

The campaign is coming to an end. No, not the Kickstarter (that still has a bit of time), but the campaign that your players started when the gods of Mescalaro and Sapelo Island first called on their help. The Devil's Bridge will be the third and final installment in the adventure path. You can go pleadge for it now over on Kickstarter.

If you're running a Castles & Crusades game, or thinking about running one, and want a really in-depth tome all about how to do it, with all sorts of extras that can be extrapolated out to any RPG, you'll want to check out the Castle Keepers Guide Kickstarter campaign. It's up and running now.

The folks over at TTCombat have been working hard on new releases for Carnevale and now the fruits of their labor are available to you. They have two new box sets, two new single figures, and a bunch of new terrain pieces that you can pick up from their webshop now.

There's a new Disney and Pixar movie out there called Onward that takes place in a modern-fantasy setting. That is to say that it's fantasy characters, but a modern world. And in said world, there's an RPG that the characters play. Well, soon, you'll be able to play as well as The OP Games has announced Quests of Yore: Barley's Edition, a new fantasy RPG based on the one seen in Onward.

Magic Items. Along with your class, spells, and abilities, they can easily be what defines your character. My bard wouldn't be anywhere near the same if he didn't have his magic guitar. Well, if you're looking for a new set of magic boots or a cape or hat or whatever else, maybe check out The Griffon's Saddlebag, a new magic item compendium that's up on Kickstarter now.

Well, it's kind of a downbeat headed into the weekend. I'm sure many of you had plans but are rethinking them because of the outbreak. That's just how it goes. Remember: stay safe for you.
