Dungeons & Dragons


Protecting the Future Character Class Book Available for Ponyfinder

Soldiers. They've sworn their lives to uphold the honor, integrity, and borders of their nation. It's not a role one takes on easily. That holds true in the world of Ponyfinder, too. This new book from Silver Games contains a new class, the Soldier, written to be compatible with both Pathfinder and 5th Edition. It also takes a look at running a game from a soldier's point of view, that is someone with ties to a specific country, rather than just "murder hobos."

Limitless Adventures is running a new Kickstarter campaign. In this case, it's Limitless NPCs.
