Year 2019


Every setting out there for your RPGs has different levels of fiction added to it. Some might be high fantasy, with lots of magic and different races and all that kind of stuff. Others might tone things down a bit and make everything more realistic. That's what Medieval, Tales from Europe looks to do. It's a D&D supplement that takes place in Medieval Europe and tries to be somewhat accurate to how life was (with an adventuring flair, of course). The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Have yourselves a look.

Weekends are fun. I had a good time on Saturday. Game was a random mish-mash of things. But that's what you get when you let our group just loose in a city with time to kill. Anyway, as it is the start of the week, we need to make sure your gaming tables look good. Quick one for you today, but no less important.

We have: WizKids Announces WarLock Terrain

More resources are never a bad thing when it comes to being a GM. The more you can look at and use for your game, the better. So, if you're a Pathfinder GM and you're looking for a new campaign, you should check out Ennervain, a new one that's up on Kickstarter now. It's a new, dark-fantasy world full of modern takes on classic issues.

Rome. They were quite the empire. They were able to turn the Mediterranean into their own, personal lake.

Apparently, Games Workshop was just like, "Well, we'll make it all available now" this weekend. There's a new Battletome for Age of Sigmar. There's a new book for the Middle-Earth Strategy Battle Game. There's a new team for Blood Bowl. And there's new planes for Aeronautica Imperialis. And besides that, there's all sorts of minis kits you can order, including figures, terrain, and more. Plus dice, magazines, deluxe versions, and on and on and on and on. Might be easier to just say, "check it out."

We're in the future, everyone. Pretty much every movie I watched as a kid that took place "in the future" without being the super-future, we've passed it by. So what is futuristic is retro. Hence, Retropunk. That's where you head in this sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

A new Celtic-based RPG is up on Kickstarter. It's called The Children of Eriu and it takes place in the Fate of the Norns universe. This game does its very best to accurately recreate the world based on actual traditions and tales, having done its homework in the form of lots and lots of research.

"Get to brass tacks." It means getting rid of all the extras and boil everything down to just the essentials. That's what Mantic has done with their new Kings of War rulebook. It's the Gamer's Edition and it's a smaller-size, softcover book that's "just the facts, ma'am." Just the rules. None of the fluff. Pre-orders are being taken now.
