Role Playing Games


We're a week from the actual Black Friday, but that's not stopped several game companies from already getting the ball rolling online. One such company is River Horse. You can head over to their webstore now and get yourself some great deals, up to 50% off certain items.

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.

1888. London. The city is gripped by fear. A terror going by the name of Jack the Ripper is stalking the streets. Will anyone be able to bring this terrible serial killer to justice? Hopefully you can, as that's your job in 5th Evolution: Whitechapel, a new 5th Edition RPG adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

Aftermath is Plaid Hat Games' upcoming Adventure Book Game. So... like, you know you get an adventure book. But what else comes in the box? Probably some minis and cards and stuff, right? Well, let the ambiguity begone! Plaid Hat has posted up a video showing just what you'll be getting when you plunk this box down on your gaming table.

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. Wizards of the Coast is always big on giving DMs resources for running their games, and that includes the Adventure League. WotC has posted up the new upcoming Oracle of War campaign preview for you to check out.

Gaming is fun. Saving money is fun. Giving to charity is fun. Toss them all together and you've got Humble Bundle. Paizo has teamed up with the famous helpers to bring you the Pathfinder Comics Cache. But it's more than just comic books. You can also get a whole wealth of Pathfinder books in the deal as well. Head on over, give to charity, and get literally dozens of books.

With the hardcover version of Eberron: Rising From the Last War now available from Wizards of the Coast, you might want to add it to your online games on Roll20. Thankfully, you don't have to worry about simply holding the book in front of you as you play, as the supplement has now been added to the Roll20 system. Now, you and your gaming group can use it, no matter where you are around the world.

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.

We're about 2/3 of the way through November. A lot of holidays are coming up, and there'll be plenty of new Starfinder and Pathfinder releases available for players to get as presents. Paizo's latest releases are now available. You can pick up some maps, some adventures, and the Starfinder Character Operations Manual.

Discuss

Gaming is fun. Giving to charity is good. Gaming for charity is just good, clean, wholeseome fun. That's what we have here. Wizards of the Coast has created a special supplement for a new character race (the tortle) and a new location as part of a special package. All proceeds for purchasing this new document goes to ExtraLife.

Do you want the Cha'alt megadungeon for half off? I mean, who doesn't? Everyone does. Well, that's exactly what you can do now. All 218 pages for only $10. But you only have until the 25th. So, go head there now.

There's going to be a lot of questions when an ocean suddenly vanishes. Vast new areas of land are exposed for exploration. And then, of course, there's just trying to find out what happened to all the water. That's just what your players will be trying to figure out in Beneath the Missing Sea, a new RPG adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Having options for your character is what every player in an RPG wants. That's exactly what Starfinder players are getting with the Character Operations Manual. New classes, new options for existing classes, new feats, new spells, new equipment, new roles for starship combat. It's got a bit of everything. This isn't one to miss.

Discuss

We've been seeing this little mousie for quite some time. He seems to be the poster-mammal for Aftermath, the new adventure book game coming soon from Plaid Hat Games. Well, now we know a bit more about him. Hisname's Meziah and he's sort of the de-facto leader of the group. See what all he's capable of in this preview.

Discuss

The Genesys RPG system was designed to be system agnostic. That means that it wasn't specifically tied to a fantasy or sci-fi or horror realm. Players could just take the rules and use them as a framework around which they built whatever style of game they wanted. Well, in the upcoming Expanded Player's Guide, Fantasy Flight is providing help with fleshing out your worlds. Get a look at how that'll operate in this preview.

Skirmisher Publishing is always looking to improve their books, making sure that you get the best product in the end. They've updated their Platinum Edition of their City Builder book. It's been re-designed, it's got new artwork, it's got it all. There's even 18 more pages to it. Go have yourselves a look.

In space, nobody can hear you play RPGs.

December 10th, Free League Publishing will be releasing the much-anticipated Alien RPG. Head out against one of the nastiest, stealthiest, most ruthless creatures in the galaxy. Will you be able to make it out alive?

Discuss

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.

Discuss

I read the title of this new RPG that's up on Kickstarter and I just want to put on Hendrix. I'm guessing I'm not the only one. And considering the rather psychadelic nature of the game, that seems to make good sense. Electric Bastionland is a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. You find yourself deeply in debt in a city and world that is definitely not what reality makes it out to be. It's hard to summarize in an opening paragraph, you just kinda have to go read about it yourself.

Discuss

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. Other places exist, and there are many who will travel to Rokugan for many different reasons. In this preview for Path of Waves, the new sourcebook coming for the RPG, we get a look at some of these Gaijin characters.

Discuss

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.

Discuss

Onyx Path Publishing is running a Kickstarter campaign for the next in their Chronicles of Darkness campaign book. This time around, it's Mummy: The Curse. Players take on the role of people who died, but now they've started to get better. Back from the dead, they walk among the living once more.

Wake up. Grab your brush, put a little makeup. It's the things we take for granted for our RP characters. They're not -always- adventuring, swinging swords or shooting blasters. There's downtime, too. In this article for the upcoming Character Operations Manual for Starfinder, Paizo takes a look at new downtime systems to make them more interesting than just "time passes."
