CMON is giving the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game a big overhaul, soon to be coming out with version 1.5 of the game. Since edition changes tend to make gamers wonder what's going to change, CMON doesn't want to wait until the release for people to be informed. In this preview, we get yet another look at the changes, this time peeking into "major" rules changes (quotations theirs).

Having a pre-made adventure around makes a GM's life easier. They can basically just "grab and go" and they've got some sessions already put together. Sprinkle in some game-specific items here and there and your players may never know that you used one. Well, Dread Swamp of the Banshee is just such an adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

I've said time and again that there's no such thing as too many options when it comes to material for GMs to speed up their game prep. Well, if you're a GM and you're looking for new baddies to throw at your players, you should check out the Monsters of Aquilae campaign that's going on now. What games do they cover? Quite a few, including Pathfinder, 5E, OSRIC, and Pathfinder Second Edition.

With the release of the new Eberron book for Dungeons & Dragons, players are able to head into that war-ravaged world and see if they can pick up the pieces after a terrible conflict.

WotC has posted up the new upcoming Oracle of War campaign preview for you to check out.

Sort of two ends of the spectrum for you from Wizards of the Coast today. On one side, you've got the mechanized world of Eberron with the Rising From the Last War book. On the other, you have the zany madcap of Dungeons & Dragons vs Rick and Morty. I did say they were pretty opposite sides of the spectrum. Both of these are available now.

Rokugan is not the only land in the Legend of the Five Rings world. Sure, it's the focus, but it's not everything. There are plenty of lands all around the edge. In Path of Waves, Fantasy Flight is exploring the edge of the land, and we get a little preview of that all here.

There's going to be a lot of questions when an ocean suddenly vanishes. Vast new areas of land are exposed for exploration.

If you're playing Dungeons & Dragons and you want some new adventures, you might want to check out the Empyrean Investigations Kickstarter. These are new in terms of them not being published before, but they're also new in terms of them being different than many other adventures out there. "Monster is doing evil things. Go destroy monster," usually sums up a D&D adventure. These are a lot more mystery-themed, where your brains will play as much a part as your brawn.

Most of the Legend of the Five Rings characters come from Rokugan, the land in which the game takes place. That makes sense. But Rokugan is not the only land in the world.
