Role Playing Games


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.

Like every company, Paizo's been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. They've posted an update about how things are going over there. Long story short: no physical shipments for 2 weeks, PaizoCon for this year is cancelled, you can still get pdf purchases right away so you can game while you're at home.

I AM THE LAW!

This is what you can shout at your opponents when you roll up in your fancy armor and helmet. Modiphius has released the Core Rulebook for the Judge Dredd RPG. They also have the first expansion, Robot Wars available. If you order the physical book, it'll be a bit before it ships. However, you'll get the pdf version right away so you can start making MegaCity One that much safer right away.

Modiphius is taking pre-orders for their upcoming Dishonored RPG core rulebook. Considering the possible delays in shipping of physical product, when you order, you'll go ahead and get a pdf copy right away. No need to wait until things loosen up in the shipping world for you to enjoy your book.

Near Space for Starfinder gives players a detailed look at a fairly dense region of space where hundreds of different worlds lie. If you'd like to get an inside look at what's inside the book (it's in inside-ception!), you can check out this article. It gives you a chapter breakdown of what's coming in the book.

It's the roaring 20s. Err, the roaring 1920s, that is. Prohibition is on. Space travel is possible. People have super powers. It's just like you read in your history books recreated in Capers Offworld RPG, a new supplment for the CAPERS RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

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.

As I mentioned, a lot of different countries rolled out new regulations and closures during the outbreak. Japanime Games is being affected by these new orders and have temporarily stopped shipping product.

With the pandemic going on, all facets of life are affected. Renegade Game Studios has posted up an update about their release schedule. Long story short: expect dates being pushed back to allow for the disruption caused by the virus.

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.

One of the things about everyone not being able to go out is that a lot of local businesses aren't able to stay open during this time. Either they're sending their workers home or there's nobody to come in to begin with. It's rough. And considering most gaming shops are small, local businesses, it can be extra tough for them. Well, Japanime Games is hoping to help. They're giving 50% of their sales from their online shop to game stores during this time. You can stay isolated and still help your local shop.

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?

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.

You can simply download Path of Waves and Sins of Regret from online now.

Most of us are stuck inside. And while game sales is cool, it will still take a while for those games to get here.

And if you do want to order some expansions, they're on sale for 50% off.

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.

So, we're supposed to stay socially isolated during this pandemic. As such, getting together to game might not be really feasible.

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).

Far from home, the Delta Quadrant holds plenty of places that no man has gone before. Sounds like a good place to send a Federation ship to do some exploring. Boldly go, even. If you're looking to see what this zone holds, you can pick up the Delta Quadrant Sourcebook for Star Trek Adventures. It's available in print and pdf now over on Modiphius' website.

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.

The folks over at Shades of Vengeance want to make sure that you have all the Era: Survival books you possibly can. They have had one successful Kickstarter for a whole bunch of expansions.
