Halfway through the week and we're at the beginning of a new month. Welcome to April, everyone. Considering how things are in the world right now? I say we skip out on April Fool's. Alright? Good. But what we shouldn't skip out on are some bite-sized gaming stories.

They've got their The Elder Scrolls Call to Arms Core Rulebook, as well as two free scenario books up on their website that you can download now.

Planning. Thinking ahead. Knowing what you're going to do. It's important in many situations, but vital right now. It's also going to be a major part of the upcoming Forgotten Waters game from Plaid Hat. So much so that it's got its own phase: the appropriately named Planning Phase. It's that which we get a preview of here today.

Ok, so the Romans actually existed (and, I mean, they still exist). And Warlords of Erehwon is a fantasy game. However, there are many mythical and legendary things about the Roman Legions of ancient times and so the folks over at Warlord Games have decided that, sure, you can use your Roman Legions in games of Warlords. Why not? Head on over and check out this new army list.

I know for a fact that you can still play your RPGs while practicing social distancing. I played just this past weekend, for example, while nobody was in the same apartment as me.

They've posted up an extensive survey and are asking gamers to partake.

Anyone who's watched Ancient Aliens knows that some ancient cultures had materials or ways of doing things that we don't have anymore. Though they'll try and tell you that it was aliens that did it.

Skirmisher Publishing brings these fantasic materials to your games in their Materials of Ancient Empires book. You can get your copy now.

Recently, a bunch of different governments put out updated guidelines for closings during the worldwide outbreak. Pretty much anything considered vital has been closed down. To comply with all these new regulations, Games Workshop is closing down their locations and to make sure that they're not spreading it via the mail, they're limited online sales as well.

Normally, the different monsters and other creatures added to RPGs are out there to attack the party in some form. But with how things are right now, Paizo thought about going a different direction by adding the Amabie to Pathfinder. This is a much more friendly character that your party can come across.

We're always looking to the future. Paizo certainly is, as they're planning on coming out with a new Beginner Box for Pathfinder in November. Is that a long way away? Sure it is. But I can't wait for it. That's my favorite time of year. But Thanksgiving aside, we'll also be able to pick up this new set to get your friends into the game quickly and easily.

You can simply download Path of Waves and Sins of Regret from online now.

Welcome to Friday. Even though I don't really have much at all planned for the weekend, I'm looking forward to it. It's been a stressful week, as I'm sure everyone will agree. But we'll make it through, press on, and see better days ahead. I mean, it's Spring (up here in the Northern Hemisphere, anyway). Here's some appropriate music.

Head on over and get your name on the list to get them as soon as they're available.

It's really foggy out this morning. I really love fog. It's just pretty to me and gives everything just this bit of air of mystery. Granted, it's pretty harmless, unlike the Miasma that's descened over Europe in Eldritch Century. That's a lot more malevolent. How will your characters deal with the situation? That's up to you to find out. You can pre-order your copies of the game's core book now.
