Role Playing Games


Travel. How do you do it? These days, it's mostly cars and planes. But for your fantasy groups, it can be a lot more diverse. And while we have GPS, such things don't often exist in a medieval fantasy world. But there's ways around it, since there's also usually magic and magic items. In this look inside the Lost Omens World Guide, we get a look at some of the ways travel works in Pathfinder.

... ... ... I mean, look, gaming books come in all sorts with all kinds of settings. This is just another one. It's The Tingleverse, the official RPG of you Chuck Tingle fans out there. Don't know who Chuck Tingle is? Well he's... ... look, just don't look him up on your work computer and you should be fine.

And yes, I will admit that I'm extremely curious about what the hell could be in this book.

You can pick up your copy now.

Mana Project Studio is looking to expand your D&D games with the release of their HIstoria dark fantasy Renaissance setting book. It includes 15 new races including different species, which gives you more than 50 different new character options there. There's also new classes, new types of magic, and new gear, including period-appropriate rules for firearms. If you're looking to get much more out of your games, you might want to check out the game on Kickstarter now.

Aftermath is the upcoming adventure book game from Plaid Hat Games. I know a lot of people are excited about its release and really wanting to know just how this new game will play. Well, you're in luck. Plaid Hat has posted up a video that shows you just that. Check it out.

Getting just the right figure to represent your character or monsters on the tabletop when playing an RPG is a big thing for me, and I'm sure it is for some of you as well. And you may feel that the regular Icons of the Realms figures just aren't good enough for you. Well, you're in luck, as WizKids is coming out with a premium line of figures.

Have you ever wanted to get more in touch with nature? You might've played Druids or Rangers in your Pathfinder games. But that still may not have been enough. Well, if you're willing to wait a little bit, you can check out the Leshies Ancestry for Pathfinder that will be coming out in the Lost Omens Character Guide.

Well, it's not a giant robot, but it's close. Longtime readers know how I love miniatures that really stretch the bounds of what "Miniature" really means. That's what we're getting from WizKids in their premium Walking Statue of Waterdeep: The Honorable Knight figure. He's a big 'un.

Well, Rome's fallen (and it can't get up). Damnit, Carlus, I told you to not let the barbarians in to check out the monuments. Now we've found ourselves out in Tenebria and we have to survive as possibly the last Romans there are. That's the story behind Tenebria: Remnant of Rome, a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

The modern culture of Japan still owes much to ancient heritage. It's this mixing of old and new culture that you'll experience in Shibuyan Knights, a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. Choose your guild and become the top Roppongan in the city.

Many of you are Kings of War fans out there. You have your armies. You send them out on grand crusades for your side. You take time and care assembling and painting them. But maybe you want to get even more down in there with your forces. Well, you can do that with the Kings of War RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

I like having a diverse set of miniatures out on the table when I'm playing my RPGs. And I like them to be as close to the thing they're representing as possible. So, getting a new set of D&D miniatures from WizKids is always nice. The Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus set is now available. If you're playing the corresponding adventure from WotC, it's perfect. But if you're just looking for some new figures to round out your collection, it's great for that too.

The D&D Adventure Box Kickstarter is more than just a module for your players to go through. It includes all manner of sensory experiences including even smell, as it comes with a scented candle. And there's different sounds as well, plus props for visual and tactile elements. It's a bit of everything, and it's up on Kickstarter 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.

With Pathfinder 2nd Edition now being well established in many gaming groups, it's time to begin expanding on the core books some. Paizo is hard at work getting the next one ready. It's got a little time to go, but considering what's in it, it's no wonder it'll take some time. Bestiary 2 is coming, but not until April. What will you get for your wait? Well, not 100, not 200, and not even 300 monsters, but more than 350 to throw at your players (hopefully not all at once).

Aftermath is the upcoming adventure book game from Plaid Hat Games. Humans have vanished and the various creatures of the world have risen up to take their place. But it's not all been harmonious and several different factions have been created. Who are these factions and what are they like? that's just what we get a look at in this preview.

Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures, the next set for Pathfinder Battles from Paizo and WizKids are about to hit shelves. But that doesn't mean that there's not time for one more preview of what you'll be getting. This time around, they focus on some of the enemies that players will surely be facing off against when the set hits shelves. Let's take a look.

Sure, there's plenty of adventure to be had while traveling around the continent of Trudvang. But what about all the adventure to be had while traveling inside the continent of Trudvang? And I don't mean just within the borders, but getting down, deep underground. There lies Musphelheim, home of the dwarves. RiotMinds is running a Kickstarter to bring this new region book to their Trudvang Chronicles RPG.

There's so many Ancestries (formerly known as Races) that one can play in Pathfinder, it might be hard to figure out what you want to choose. With the release of 2nd edition, players have found a new one they can try, the Hobgoblin. But what does playing one mean for the game? In this article, Paizo takes a look at just that.

Why do game designers make the decisions they do? What draws them to create the way they create? That's what a lot of gamers want to know. In the upcoming Alien Archive 3 for Starfinder, there's a lot of different races coming to the game, and Paizo's posted up a Design Diary article with the designers so they can talk about where they got their inspiration for making the aliens they did.

I love the Cyberpunk genre. Bladerunner's one of my favorite movies. I've played various Cyberpunk RPGs and card games. But sometimes, getting players to want to learn a new system is a pain. That's where Entromancy comes in. It's a cyberpunk game that uses the 5th Edition D&D rules as a base. So, it's the game you and your friends know, but with a setting that's certainly not just high fantasy. You can pick up your copy now.

When za kids sing out za futcha! Maybe kids don't need za mahstahs! Just euwaiting for za wlittle bustahs! Oh yeaaaaaah, yeah-yeah yeaaaaaaah!

I actually just watched through FLCL again not too long ago. My Bard I'm playing has a pull-start guitar. Now, there's an RPG that is inspired by the anime up on Kickstarter. It's called Never Knows Best. And I'd recommend checking it out.

A trip to the Scottish highlands sounds nice and relaxing. I certainly wouldn't mind going there. However, I might skip it if there's a ton of ghost activity in the region. And that's just what is going on in Ghosts of Glencoe, a new adventure for the Liminal RPG. Players must find out why the restless spirits have been extra-restless lately. You can pick up a pdf of this new adventure now.

Space is big. Really big. ... *blinks* Weird...

Anyway, Alligator Alley Entertainment is here to expand your possible number of aliens and other strange creatures your players might encounter with the release of their Threats Database sci-fi bestiary book. If you're playing Esper Genesis, this is a must-have book for new things to fling towards your players (literally or figuratively).

Space is big. Really big. You may think it's a long way down to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts compared to space. And with all that space, there are plenty of alien species inhabiting the various planets, moons, and asteroids. You get a whole bunch more of them for your Starfinder games in Alien Archive 3. In this article, we get a look at some of them, including new playable races.

I mean, sure, you can head to the Red Dragon Brother's Magic Item Emporium and Groceries to pick up just a +1 sword or a +2 shield, but where's the fun in that? How about you instead pick up a sentient weapon, or a weapon set, or some other much more interesting piece of gear? That's what you'll find in the Magic Item Grimoire, that's up on Kickstarter now. Also, they have special custom dice. So there's that.
