Fragged RPG: Regions Books Up On Kickstarter

For those that have played any of the Fragged RPGs, you might want to spread out from the core lands and see what's out there.

There's a Kickstarter campaign going on right now for not one, not two, but three different region books for the games. Have yourself a look-see.

Forge World Taking Pre-Orders For White Scars Legion Ebon Keshig Terminators

So, you've brought shame and dishonor upon your name and your clan! You shall be punished by... being given some kick-ass power armor and super-powerful weapons. Seems legit to me. That's exactly what the White Scars do with their dishonorable soldiers.

Fantasy Flight Previews Resistance Transport From X-Wing

While taking a transport into a dogfight might seem like taking a conversion van into a NASCAR race, there are definitely upsides to doing so. Namely, all the upgrades and crew you can generally put on them. In this case, we get a look at the Resistance Transport for X-Wing. It's versatile, because if you want to ditch the bottom 3/4 of the ship, you can do so and just fly around in the cockpit.

BattleTech: Clan Invasion Coming to Kickstarter July 17

<whoop! whoop! whoop!> Giant robot alert! We have giant robot alert!

And it's hitting me in my nostalgia centers, because it involves some of the first giant robots I ever really got involved with (after Transformers). Mechwarrior 2 was my jam back in the day. Though I never did get into BattleTech, it's always had that spot in my heart. Well, this July, BattleTech: Clan Invasion is coming to Kickstarter. And looking at the minis that'll be part of it, I know where some of my money will be going this summer.

Black Cats Gaming Posts The Spy Game RPG Quick Start Rules

Gamers can sometimes be uninterested in learning a whole new rules set, and can be set in their ways. But what if you want to play in a different setting? Thankfully, many rules can be adapted, especially RPG rules. As such, if you want to play an ultra-modern espionage and action RPG, you can still do that while using the 5th Edition rules many of you already know. That's because Black Cats Gaming is releasing The Spy Game. The full game is coming to Kickstarter soon, but you can snag a copy of the Quick Start rules now.

Man, I wish it was September. While we've had a bit of a respite from the heat this past week, being only the start of June still, it'll come back, and with a vengeance. Not looking forward to that. What I am looking forward to are all the Privateer Press releases in September. There's Warmachine. There's Hordes. There's Monsterpocalypse (including <whoop! whoop! whoop!> Giant robot alert!). There's Riot Quest. Let's take a look.

Rocket Age takes you back to the sci-fi era as envisioned in classic sci-fi tales.

Fantasy Flight Previews Dathomirians and Nightsisters in Collapse of the Republic

Darksaber. If you've read it, you might regret it. If you haven't read it, you might've heard about it. It was one of the least-liked Star Wars EU books that came out years ago. And while the Disney purge of the EU wiped it from existence, elements from it remain, such as the planet Dathomir and the Force Witches that live there. And soon, they'll be making their way to the Star Wars RPG. Have yourselves a look in this peek into Collapse of the Republic.
