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.

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.

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.

Just a single change to an army list can drastically affect how it plays.

In this preview, we get a look at some of the figures that will be coming out in the box later this week.

So, whether you want sci-fi gangs or epic high-fantasy figures, there's a little something for you.

You know, when you name your game Pathfinder Adventure Card Game and you have Adventures in it, you're bound to get redundant-sounding headlines like that. Anyway, Paizo's giving you a look at another of their ... Adventures in the card game. Best to know what you could get into ahead of time and choose your equipment and abilities accordingly.

This November, a new House is coming to the A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game. House Baratheon is hitting tabletops. Robert Baratheon's brothers, Stannis and Renley have each decided that they're the rightful heir to the Iron Throne. Unfortunately, since they both want it, House Baratheon is a house divided. Which will you back? And will either of them succeed?

Paizo Posts Pathfinder Perrata... I mean, Errata. As an editor, I know just how tought it can be to make sure a book is right when it goes to print. With easily dozens of versions of documents flying around, it's easy to have a version get sent that wasn't entirely what you wanted. Be it typoes that just didn't get spotted, rules that had been updated but the wrong document sent, or often just rules that seemed good at the time, but once you get them out there don't quite work how you wanted. Whatever the reason, an update is necessary, and that's just what Paizo's posted for you.

When you want to fill your day with gaming information, a gaming magazine is a great place to do it. Wizards of the Coast continues their long tradition of extra information for Dungeons & Dragons with Dragon+ magazine. Issue 28 is now available. It's free to download and read, so why not take a look and see what they have to offer?

The week is trundling along. It's not the slowest of weeks, but it's not going by quickly either. Feels like it should at least be Thursday afternoon by now. And yet, here we are, only partway through Wednesday. It's alright, because time will eventually march along and we'll get back to the weekend. In the meantime, I'm feeling a little peckish, so let's get into some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Burrows & Badgers Fantasy Figures Up On Kickstarter, Kraken Dice 2-day Dice Market Sale Happening Now, and From Kadath Horror Figures Up On Kickstarter.

Many of my friends have kids. Many of those kids are just getting to the age where they want to join mommy and daddy in their game nights. However, going full-on into a regular adventure might be a bit much for them. Thankfully, there's more kid-oriented and family-friendly gaming adventures out there all the time. One such is The Legend of Gimcrack Jack, a new fantasy adventure for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now.

When I'm playing D&D, I like to have miniatures out on the table that as accurately as possible represent what our party is fighting. That can sometimes get difficult. But thankfully, there's always new figure sets coming out. In this case, it's Volo’s & Mordenkainen’s Foes. Sounds like it should have plenty of evildoers for our party to take on.

Skirmisher Publishing worked hard to create a new version of their City Builder system. Now, they're going back through all their previous books and updating them to this new version.

I play Dungeons & Dragons every-other weekend. I was just looking over character spell options this morning for my Bard. I'm sure many of you are in regular games as well. If you are (or even if you just enjoy the game less frequently), Wizards of the Coast wants to hear from you. They've posted up their D&D Survey 2019 and would be thankful if you could check it out.

Dragons. Sure, they're huge and destructive, but don't you want one of your own? I know I want a dozen, myself. But getting dragon eggs isn't easy. You'll need help. But be careful, anyone who's willing to go steal dragon eggs is also willing to stab you in the back to get more. That's what's happening in League of Infamy, the new sometimes-cooperative dungeon crawl board game from Mantic. The game's up on Kickstarter now.
