Sure, when you're playing an RPG, the focus is just on the PCs, but what about all the other things going on in the kingdoms/realms? How do those work? And what happens if someone does become ruler of the land? That's where a supplement like Kingdoms & Warfare comes in. It's a new guide for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now. Find out about running a kingdom and even fighting wars to expand your territory.

There is evil in the world. That's why most adventurers go out and fight against it. But beyond just being generic "that's bad," what about games that want to further explore just what being evil means? Well, that's where the Corpus Malicious comes in. It's a new supplement for your D&D games that expands on evilness and what it means to be evil. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
If there's one thing players want for their characters, it's options. With more options comes more ways to customize their character into exactly what they want to play. Well, the folks at Kort'thalis Publishing are helping with the release of Cha'alt Ascended, a set of new and updated feats for your characters. Many of them are specifically designed to be useful in their Cha'alt megadungeon. You can pick up your copy now.
For there to be good, there must be evil. So, it could be said that to have great good, there must be great evil. Corpus Malicious is a book all about that great evil. It's a new book coming to soon to Kickstarter to add even more evil to your D&D games. In the meantime, the developers, Dream Realm Storytellers, have posted up a free-to-download demo book for it. You can check that out now.
The Kickstarter campaign is over. You've missed out on all the cool pricing, extras, and specials.
Or, have you?
Well, if you're looking to get Fateforge, the new setting guide for 5th edition, the campaign might be over, but your time has not yet run out. They are taking Late Pledges now. Just head on over before October 15th.
Nostalgia. People love getting back to the past and seeing what sort of amazing things were there. What's old is new again, and that includes retro-inspired RPG adventures. The Folio is running a Kickstarter campaign for a trio of retro-inspired RPG adventures for either 5th edition, but also classic AD&D.
Sinopa Publishing has been running a Patreon campaign where their backers can get some really cool content for your D&D games. They've already published one Omnibus and they're looking to create a second, heading to Kickstarter in order to get it done. There's some really need items in there, from different sorcerers to monsters and more. Have yourself a look-see.
A GM can never have enough resources at their disposal. That is my honest opinion. Even if they don't use things verbatim, they can take those offerings and adapt them to their own uses. That's where having a new monster book comes in, and that's what you're getting with Scarred Lands: Creature Collection, a book ~140 new monsters that you can throw at your 5th Edition adventuring group. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
The Cha'alt megadungeon is a little bit different in theme and flavor than most. So, your average, everyday character might not really fit in with it all so well. But don't be afraid. The folks over at Kort'thalis Publishing have a solution. They've created Cha'alt Pre-Generated, a book of 27 pre-made PCs that perfectly fit the style, theme, and tone they're going for. Either use them as-is, or use them as a basis for your own character. Whatever you choose. You can pick up your copy now.
Want to fill your day with gaming info? Are you playing in or soon to be playing in a Dungeons & Dragons game? Just interested in the system? If you answered "yes" to any of these, you should check out Dragon+ issue 27. It's available now for your downloading and reading pleasure.
We're inclusive here on TGN. Everyone should be able to get involved in gaming. Everyone should feel welcomed and included at the table. That's also the thought of those behind Adventuring with Pride, a new LGBT-themed supplement for D&D that includes one-shot adventures, pre-made characters, NPCs, and lots of new gear. The book is up on Kickstarter now.
We take for granted just how easy it is to get from place to place these days. Hop in your car, climb aboard a bus, take a train, get in an airplane. Whatever you choose, this rather safe mode of transport is there for you. Most trips are pretty uneventful. But back in your medieval fantasy games, travelling was a bit more prone to encounters. And that's just what we've got in Traveling Encounters Volume 1, a set of encounters for Dungeons & Dragons that's up on Kickstarter now.
Your adventuring party has cleaned out the local nest of goblins and gotten their reward. They head to the tavern for some well-deserved rest when someone suggests a game. Cards and pulled out and bets are made. Chances are, the game they're playing is Three Dragon Ante. If you want to get in on the same action, you can do so with the new Legendary Edition of Three Dragon Ante, available from WizKids.
When your gaming group is spread out all over, it can be hard to get together in one room to play (I mean, if everyone lives in the same apartment building, it can sometimes be hard to get everyone together in one room to play, but still...). That's where digital tabletops come in, with Roll20 being an industry leader. And if you're looking for adding the acclaimed Baldur's Gate: Descent into Avernus campaign, it's now available.
In an enchanted glade, all predatory animals have been held at bay, letting everything else thrive. But that barrier is breaking down. How will the animals that have come to make the glade home make it through? That's up to you in Hidden Heroes, a new one-shot RPG adventure using 5th Edition rules that's up on Kickstarter 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
Wanting to play something a bit more steampunk with your D&D game? You don't have much longer to wait. Wizards of the Coast is showing off their upcoming Eberron: Rising from the Last War book, which will give you everything you need to get going, from a campaign guide to player options. Pre-orders are being taken now, including for an alternate cover.
