The folks over at Free League Publishing are doing what they can to make sure that the official Alien RPG is accessable to as many gamers as would like to try their hand in surviving in Ridley Scott's horror universe. As such, they're going to be releasing the rulebook in 7 new languages soon. This will open up the game to a whole new audience.
In deep space, humanity struggles for survival. In particular, the humans in Sanctorvm (because Rome?). It's a new sci-fi horror/survival board game with heavy RPG elements that's up on Kickstarter now. Play in two modes: Adventure mode with 15 huge missions, or for a quicker game you can go through Mission mode where each game takes about an hour.
What do you get when you combine the classic songs London Bridge is Falling Down and London Calling?
A really weird tune, but you also get Fall of London (you really don't, but this is where my brain went, ok?). It's a new book for Vampire: The Masquerade 5th edition in the long history of sourcebooks for the game. Fall of London will be coming in March of next year, but if you want to get your name on the list, you can pre-order now from Modiphius.
Sure, it's the season of Christmas and Hanukkah and other such winter holidays, but what if you want some horror and madness thrown in? Well, now during your winter break, you can play Call of Cthulhu with your friends all over the world via Roll20, as the system is now available on the online gaming platform.
Blood for the Blood G- ... oh, sorry, wrong game.
It should come as no surprise that Vampire: The Masquerade has a lot to do with blood. It's a vampire's main sustenence, of course (along with plasma fruit). Well, a new sourcebook for the 5th edition for the game is up on Kickstarter now. It's Cults of the Blood Gods.
The Curse of the House of Rookwood is a new gothic horror RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. Players take on the role of a cursed family with various skeletons in their closets (possibly literally). But they are not the only creepy things in this world. Some are out to get them. Will the family be able to work together or will inter-personal rivalries and issues tear them apart? That up to you to decide.
Listening to Meshuggah while typing this seems appropriate. Anyway, Free League Publishing is running a Kickstarter campaign for Vaesen, their new Nordic horror RPG. Scandinavia has a lot of tales and folklore, much of it dark and foreboding. Well, now all those horror tales are coming to life on your tabletops.
A Time for Sacrifice is a new set of adventures coming out for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition that's up on Kickstarter now. New Comet Games is looking to create adventures that are 50% bigger than the average adventure set for the game. They've got everything just about ready to go, but things need those final touches, and that's what they're looking to fund via their campaign.
Seeing as it's October, it seems a pretty good time to go out for a good scare. And sometimes, you want to bring that to your gaming sessions. At least, you certainly can if you're playing All is Madness: Paranormal, a new horror RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. Can you face your fears?
If you were going to release a new, illustrated version of one of the classic horror stories based on one of the classic horror monsters, what day would you say would be the best day to do that?
... No... Halloween!
"... oh... yeah, I suppose that would be better..."
It is, and that's just what Free League Publishing is doing with their new The Call of Cthulhu book.
The cultists were successful. The great Elder God will be coming. But maybe all hope is not lost. The Investigators still have a chance to save the world, but they'll have to work together and fast. That's the story in Arkham Horror: Final Hour, the new board game coming from Fantasy Flight. In this preview, we get a look at the speedy Action Phase.
So, you got yourself all prepped for RPG night, but none of the other players can make it. What are you going to do? Not RP? That's just silly. No, you can grab yourself a solo RPG such as Seekers Beyond the Shroud, a new urban occult RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. Pull back the veil onto a world of mysticism, secret societies, and strange magic.
I last took French back a hundred years ago in High School. While some words and phrases look familiar and I can understand them, trying to play a game in French would be impossible. Thankfully, there's those out there looking to translate games into English. One such group is looking to make Librete for an English-speaking audience. Check it out if you want to see what happens when all the adults in the world suddenly vanish.
Dead of Night. It's when I do much of my work. *often up at 2am* But I will freely admit that strange things often happen. Weird sounds around my apartment or at the office. Walking to the car and just feel unease. For me, it's just some animals in the woods or my own paranoia, but for the Investigators in Arkham Horror, it's much more nefarious. In this preview of the new expansion coming for the game, Fantasy Flight looks at the new scenario you'll be trying to solve.
The year is 2670 and humanity is still hanging on past two near-extinction events. They have spread out into the solar system with trips even further out beginning. It's into this time that you find yourself in TerrorForm, a new horror-sci-fi RPG setting and system from Argonauts Incorporated. You can check out this new RPG on Kickstarter now.
It's started to get cooler out, even here in Atlanta. Highs will soon drop below the 90s and lows might dip into the upper 50s. Autumn is nearly upon us, and with it comes the haunting season. All things ghoulish are coming, including Fantasy Flight's Arkham Nights 2019, a 3 day festival of all things horror and weird based on H.P. Lovecraft's work. Tickets are available now.
Just as WWI was at its climax, a strange fog permeated the Argonne forest, killing and warping whomever tried to go into it. This brought the conflict to a swift end, as entire armies were swallowed by it. Now, 66 years has gone by with the fog staying mostly still. But now it is growing. What is in store for the world? That's for you to find out in Eldritch Century, a new alternative history RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.
Labor Day. Time for one last summer beach trip before Autumn and eventually Winter takes over the Northern Hemisphere. If you're looking to stock up on some gaming gear before the weather turns cold, GobboTown Games is running themselves a sale over in their webshop for their Cthulhu Xothic Wars minis. But head over now, as these deals won't last forever.
Dead of Night. Some people might use that term to describe when I wake up in the morning and start work (been up since 2:30am. No alarm clock required. And no caffeine consumed). But it's also the name of the next expansion coming up for Arkham Horror. As one would expect, there's some new Investigators incoming. In this preview, we get a look at them.
Zombies, zombies everywhere. Will you manage to keep yourself together and your brains in your head? It's not going to be easy in Outbreak: Undead. The new second edition is coming and Renegade Game Studios is taking pre-orders for the GM's Guide now. It's everything required to put the fear of death into any player.
Yes, you read that right. IDW and CMON are teaming up to bring you Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Zombicide. They had some issues when the sets first were announced, but things look like they're working better now. You can head over and pre-order your sets now.
Some new miniatures are available for Achtung! Cthulhu from Modiphius. They're the Unleashed version of Sing and Araine. And, I have to admit, the effect on the Singh Unleashed miniature is rather interesting. These figures can be used in your RPG games or games of the Achtung! Cthulhu minis game.
I wake up at a ridiculously early hour. I know people who generally go to bed later than I wake up. So, I am often up during the "dead of the night." And yes, even just sitting in my apartment, things can get weird. Though, I've yet to have other-dimensional horrors try and show up. You're not so lucky in Dead of Night, a new expansion coming for Arkham Horror from Fantasy Flight Games.
The horrors of WWII were immense. And that's just the real world before you throw in other-dimension horros like Cthulhu. But that's just what happens in Achtung! Cthulu from Modiphius. And to help you bring that existential horror to your tabletops, they've got a quartet of new miniatures sets available over on their website.
