Paizo Announces Partnership with Roll20: Virtual Tabletop Coming for Pathfinder and Starfinder Roleplaying Games

I love playing RPGs. However, finding enough locals to play can be tricky. I’ve got friends all over the world that’d love to play, but the commute from Australia, Sweden, and Seattle can be a bit rough. Thankfully, there’s Virtual Tabletops like Roll20. They’ve announced that they’re teaming up with Paizo to support official Starfinder and Pathfinder material on their platform. Crownfall, the first of these, is available to pre-order now.

Far Away Land RPG Up On Kickstarter

I’m a fan of the theater of the absurd. Random non-sequiturs, odd mash-ups of themes, and gonzo journalism (in the Hunter S. Thompson form). If you’re like me, a game like Far Away Land might be just for you. It’s like if you mushed together something like Adventure Time and Rick & Morty and a bit of Dungeons & Dragons. Go check it out the campaign on Kickstarter.

Summerland Tabletop RPG Second Edition Up On Kickstarter

I know, as a polar bear, you’d think my favorite environment would be the tundra. But that’s not so. I love forests. And if one were to just happen to bring down most of society, well… I mean, forests are pretty cool. That’s what’s happened in Summerland. The Sea of Leaves is a vast, supernatural forest that the players must navigate. Being Drifters, they don’t fit into society anymore, but they also don’t fully fit into the realm of the forest. There’s a new edition that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Skirmisher Publishing Releases Mysterious Relics: Pantheon-Specific Temple Objects & Furnishings

As I’ve said many, many times before, it’s always good for the GM of a game to have resources on-hand to help flesh out their game world. Players are great at asking questions that a GM might not have expected, and thus have to come up with answers on the fly. A common trope is to have the adventurers head to various religious temples and other locations. “So, what do I see?” is a pretty common question, and it could be easy to just be like, “uh… religious stuff…” But that’s no fun. That’s why Skirmisher Publishing has created Mysterious Relics: Pantheon-Specific Temple Objects & Furnishings. You can get your copy now.

Wyrd Monday Preview Posted

It’s a dude’s face in a flaming wheel.
I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with it. It’s just, what did that initial art request look like? I’d kinda like to see that.
Anyway, Wyrd finishes up their look at the Undying encounter box with a look at the Wanyudo.

Dawn of Rebellion Sourcebook Now Available For the Star Wars RPG

At the end of the first three movies (number-wise, not release-wise) in Star Wars, Emperor Palpatine has seized power and is ruling the galaxy with an iron fist.

The Dawn of Rebellion book for the Star Wars RPG takes you to those difficult days. It’s available now.

Devil’s Run RPG Back Up On Kickstarter

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. It’s another way of saying that if you fall off that post-apocalyptic car while being chased by marauders, you get back up on it. At least, I would suggest you do so. And that’s what Red Scar has done with their Devil’s Run Kickstarter. This new one supports both Modiphius’ 2d20 system as well as Savage Worlds.

Skirmisher Publishing Releases Moat Monsters

A castle’s defenses are many and varied. You’ve got thick wall to keep enemies out. Tall towers from which you can rain arrows down on opponents. A sturdy portcullis so foes don’t just waltz in through the front door. And there’s the moat, a watery defense that reminds knights that heavy plate armor makes it hard to swim. But what could be lurking in those waters also looking to help defend the castle? That’s what you can find out in Moat Monsters, a new sourcebook available from Skirmisher Publishing.

Wyrd Previews Grave Golem

“You made the Earth move under my feet.” It’s something you say to someone else for really getting you or doing something great. For the Grave Golem, it could just be that part of the soil has come alive and looking to drag you down. I guess that does make digging graves easier. The Grave Golem is today’s Wyrd Preview.

Infinity RPG Now Available In Print Form

Sure, Infinity is set in a distant future where humanity’s spread out among the stars, and I’m sure that paper books are a bit passe, and even these days, many people like books in digital form. But I’m an old fuddy-duddy who likes to actually have a book in-hand when I can. So I’m in luck (and if you’re like me, you are, too), as the Infinity RPG is now available in print form.

I’m sure many of us can remember back to the first RPG adventure we tried to run or played in. It might’ve been something you came up with, yourself, or it might’ve been a pre-generated adventure. If you were pretty young, you might not have fully understood how things worked, as the book was more-than-likely not written with a new player in mind. Well, the Hidden Halls of Hazakor, a new 5th edition adventure up on Kickstarter, is written not just for new players, but new dungeon masters as well.

Good Society: A Jane Austen Roleplaying Game Up On Kickstarter

I’ve gotta be honest, the only exposure to Jane Austen I’ve had has come from parodies (mostly from Daria and Futurama).

Ascendant Destiny Fantasy RPG Up On Kickstarter

When playing in an RPG, we tend to have a very specific idea of what we want our characters to be. We have a rather clear picture of what they look like, how they act, what their personality is like, what they’re good at. Sometimes, it’s hard for a game to actually make that character live and breathe in the system of the rules. Ascendant Destiny looks to be as flexible as possible with character creation rules, so the character you make is exactly the one you want. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
