Sci-fi


Fantasy Flight's got some new Star Wars releases available for you this week. If you're an X-Wing player, there's the 2nd edition version of the C-ROC Cruiser. So, Scum & Villainy gets their huge ship back. Meanwhile, in Legion, they have the Count Dooku and Clone Captain Rex Commander Expansions that you can pick up.

Having options for your character is what every player in an RPG wants. That's exactly what Starfinder players are getting with the Character Operations Manual. New classes, new options for existing classes, new feats, new spells, new equipment, new roles for starship combat. It's got a bit of everything. This isn't one to miss.

Yes, it's the Giant Robot Alert going off for the new Forge World items on order this week. There's a Dreadnaught body, a couple sets of Dreadnaught weapons, and even a complete Dread if you want to just buy everything all at once. Let's take a look.

The Judge Dredd Miniatures Game takes players into the mean streets of Mega City One. Will you roll with the Judges, looking to bring justice? Or will you be one of the many gangs fighting for territory? In this preview, we get a little look at the system, the factions, as well as the campaign system that will be coming with the game's release.

Corvus Belli's Infinity: Defiance game takes players into the Infinity universe in a whole new way. The players are traveling aboard the Defiance, an interstellar space ship. We've seen a bit about what they do while aboard, but what else are they capable of doing? There's going to be down-time between missions, so what happens then? We get a look at that information in this article.

In space, nobody can hear you play RPGs.

December 10th, Free League Publishing will be releasing the much-anticipated Alien RPG. Head out against one of the nastiest, stealthiest, most ruthless creatures in the galaxy. Will you be able to make it out alive?

The new year will be here relatively soon. And while my own eyes need glasses to see correctly, Privateer Press is giving us 2020 vision with a look at what will be coming out in February. Have yourselves a look at new Warmachine, Monsterpocalypse, and Riot Quest releases.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>

Yup, that's right. Giant robots ahead.

Sort of two camps worth of pre-orders this week from Games Workshop. On one side, you've got a new Necromunda box set as well as book in the form of The Book of Ruin. On the other side, you've got a whole bunch of new Lord of the Rings sets, including some named characters like Legolas, some of the Dwarves from The Hobbit, and more. So, whether you want sci-fi gangs or epic high-fantasy figures, there's a little something for you.

Fantasy Flight has quite a few new releases hitting shelves. As you can see from the featured image, there's a new KeyForge set. You can pick it up in many differentn forms, from a 2-player starter, to a regular deck, to a deluxe regular deck, to an even more deluxe-er set. For you X-Wing fans, there's the Huge Ship Conversion Kit as well as the Multiplayer Epic Expansion. If you missed out on getting a Tantiv IV before, you can pick up one now designed for 2nd edition.

Wake up. Grab your brush, put a little makeup. It's the things we take for granted for our RP characters. They're not -always- adventuring, swinging swords or shooting blasters. There's downtime, too. In this article for the upcoming Character Operations Manual for Starfinder, Paizo takes a look at new downtime systems to make them more interesting than just "time passes."

Strong and Resilient aren't usually terms used when describing Guinea Pigs. But that's for us here in the regular world. In the world of Aftermath, after the Calamity, things are a bit different. Grumple, the guinea pig, is the big badass of the team. Get a look at what she's capable of in this preview.

In the Star Wars universe, nobody's just walking around. There's hundreds of different vehicles to get from place to place. And, obviously, you can't walk from one planet to another. That's where all those different starships come in. Soon, you'll be able to use a whole bunch of those vehicles in your Star Wars RPG game with the Starships and Speeders sourcebook.

In any game you play, the choices you make as a player should matter somewhat. When making Infinity: Defiance, Corvus Belli wanted to add extra elements to the way players make decisions and, almost as importantly, if they make poor decisions and things don't go their way. In this article, they look at just that.

Seems like it's been a while since we've had one of these. Corvus Belli has obviously been working hard on Defiance, but that doesn't mean that Infinity isn't going to be getting new figures soon, too. Here's a look at what you could be getting for the holidays from friends and family who know you best (or just pick them up for yourself to be on the safe side).

Many people feel that the Ultramarines are the "boring Chapter" for the Space Marines. I don't know that that's entirely accurate. Maybe back in the day when they were the "generic chapter" that Marines defaulted to out of the codex, but not so much anymore. But anyway, whether you feel that or not, there's a new Contemptor Dread for the chapter that you can order now from Forge World.

This is quite a release announcement from Fantasy Flight. First off, as you can tell from the Featured Image, the much-anticipated Marvel Champions card game is now available. But if you're wanting something else, there's a bit more going on. There's the new Final Hour stand-alone Arkham Horror game. Or, for you Mansions of Madness players, you can pick up Path of the Serpent. Want some Star Wars: Legion? There's that too with the BARC Speeder and Droideka kits. I told you it was quite an announcement.

The Character Operations Manual coming soon for Starfinder has, as one would expect, a bunch of new options for characters in the game. A major aspect of any character is their Class. Well, the Manual has several new ones for players to pick. Have yourself a look at a preview of these new options.

A squad of troopers is a great, multi-purpose unit that can go anywhere and do just about anything. However, toss a couple specialists in there and now that same unit can take on even more tasks with greater reliability and skill than before. If you're looking to upgrade your Battle Droid or Clone Trooper units, you'll want to check out the new Upgrade Packs that are coming soon to Star Wars: Legion from Fantasy Flight.

As I've stated before, there's no such thing as too many resources for GMs to draw from when planning their games. NPCs, World-guides, and enemies. So, so, sooooooo many enemies. Fight This Mutant is a new resource for D20 games that has over 80 pages worth of new baddies for the players to take on. The game book is up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Many of you have been waiting, and now the wait is over. Corvus Belli has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Infinity Defiance, their new cooperative sci-fi miniatures board game. Head into the Infinity universe like never before, work together, complete objectives, and make sure that you're alive in the end.

A new adventure for Mutant: Year Zero is now available from Free League Publishing. The world is in peril again, and it's up to the players to fix it. This book ties the previous adventures, Genlab Alpha, Mechatron, and Elysium together. This isn't going to be easy. If you're wanting a spine-tingling, pulse-pounding adventure, this is the one for you.

I'm human. You're human. We're all human. And each of us is different. However, when it comes to races in RPGs, they tend to boil down entire races and species into a single set of traits you put on your character. Well, Paizo knows that that's not the best and is giving players more racial options for the different core races from the Starfinder book in the upcoming Character Operations Manual. In this preview, we get a look at just what some of those options will look like.

Sometimes, a company's just like, "Ok, we're going to release just a ton of everything that we have. Ready-set-go!" That seems like what GW's up to this week. There's some new Aeronautica Imperialis heavy Ork bombers. Those are pretty sweet.

<whoop! whoop! whoop!>
Yes, we have some Adeptus Titanicus figures triggering the Giant Robot Alert.

There's two new Battletomes for Age of Sigmar: Ogor Mawtribes and Ossiarch Bonereapers.

And if that weren't enough, there's a whole host of new Middle-earth Strategy Battle Game kits, comprising some interesting side-characters to the conflicts from Lord of the Rings.

Have yourselves a look.

Time once again for the Giant Robot Alert to go off. This time around, it's Alpha Mecha. This sci-fi skirmish game of huge robots battling it out is as quick to learn as it is to play. And if you're a fan of digital forms for game books, you're in luck. They've got a PDF version of that up on Kickstarter now.

The galaxy is filled with all manner of planets comprising all sorts of environments and all sorts of dangers and challenges. And your job is to go visit them. At least, that's what you do in Star Fleet, and will be doing in Star Trek Adventures: Strange New Worlds, the new supplement that's available now from Modiphius.
