World of Alessia Campaign Primer Up On Kickstarter

There’s a lot of settings out there that can feel rather “samey.” You know, there’s the elves and the orcs and the castles and the dragons. Or even if it’s a sci-fi campaign, it seems like just a re-hash of something you’ve seen. World of Alessia looks to create an all-new universe that, while inspired by others, is its own thing. It’s got technology. It’s got magic. It’s got… well, there’s still dragons, but dragons are cool. The Campaign Primer is up on Kickstarter now.

Ponyfinder: From the Ashes Adventure Up On Kickstarter

Wars are pretty brutal. They can leave scars in the land and in populations that remain for generations. In the wake of the war between the fey and humanoid races, the land was left scorched and even the sky had been changed. Into this wasteland, groups of creatures that had been on opposite sides realized that it was only by working together that they would survive. That’s where you find yourselves in the new Ponyfinder adventure, From the Ashes. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

D&D Icons of the Realms: Monster Menagerie III Now Available

I’m about to get into a new D&D group. It’s my first 5th Edition game, actually. I’ve already got my character built. I don’t have a mini for it yet. Not really sure I’ve seen one I want to use. Perhaps there’ll be one in the new D&D Icons of the Realms: Monster Menagerie III set. It is available now, so I should go check it out.

Ponyfinder: From the Ashes Adventure Up On Kickstarter

Terrible wars tend to have terrible consequences. When the Humanoids and the Fey went to war, it was truly a terrible war. At the climax, the energy that held back the Everglow was unleashed. This wave of primal forces reduced everything it touched to ashes. Very little was spared. In the aftermath, the survivors realized what they had done and hostilities ended, as everyone realized that life was already going to be much tougher in this grey world. That’s where you find yourselves in Ponyfinder: From the Ashes, a new adventure sourcebook that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Liberty A.F.T.E.R. Sci-Fi RPG Now Available

It’s interesting how a single thing can evolve to grow into more items as it goes along. For example, the world of Liberty started off as a podcast. Then, it grew into a graphic novel. Now, they’re letting you join in with Liberty A.F.T.E.R., a new sci-fi RPG setting book using the 5th Edition rules (tweaked, obviously). If you’d like to go adventuring on a far-off distant world that’s been divided into two parts, with one side controlled by an oppressive government while the other is overrun with post-apocalyptic games, you can check out this new book.

Mists of Akuma: Imperial Matchmaker 5th Edition Adventure Up On Kickstarter

You know, I’ve often said that I love pre-made adventures, as they give the GM a lot of resources and can make the game as easy for them as it is for the players to just play it. Usually, they’re good for a level or two, but the Mists of Akuma: Imperial Matchmaker adventure for 5th Edition is here to get your players from 4th to 10th level. Yeah, that’s quite a module. It’s set in the eastern fantasy noir steampunk Soburin setting, and it’s up on Kickstarter now.

The Mermaid’s Blessing RPG Adventure Up On Kickstarter

Pre-made adventures give GMs a ready-to-go group of game sessions. They give you everything you need and you can have a group go through them over the course of several sessions. The Mermaid’s Blessing is a new adventure for 5th Edition that’s up on Kickstarter now. I don’t really think that these mermaids are going to be combing their hair with forks and singing with crabs.

Princes of the Apocalypse Module Now Available On Roll20

I have friends all over the world. I’m sure most of you do, too. The Internet connects us with people from everywhere, instantly.

They’ve teamed up with Wizards of the Coast and are releasing official Dungeons & Dragons modules on their platform. You can get the Princes of the Apocalypse module now.

The Hidden Halls of Hazakor 5th Edition Adventure Up On Kickstarter

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.

Ultimate NPCs for 5th Edition Up On Kickstarter

As I’ve said time and time again, having more resources for the GM is never a bad thing. They have an entire universe to populate while the players have to only worry about their own characters. I know I’ve struggled to come up with all the NPCs that my group might encounter along the way. So it’d be handy to have something like the Ultimate NPCs Guide that’s up on Kickstarter now. It’s over 200 pages of pre-built characters of many different levels you can just drop into your game.

While the various D20 systems have a decent bit in common, and stats can certainly be shifted around between them, it’s much easier to just have a book that gives you right what you need.

You know I love to fill my time with as much gaming information as possible. I’m also always looking for ideas for the RPG I’m running.

D&D Icons of the Realms: Classic Creatures Now Available From WizKids

I love to use minis when doing my RPGs. It gives everyone a sense of where people are in the encounters, as well as can help make things feel a bit more “real.” What I hate is when I have to use the wrong mini for something because I don’t have the right one. Or you’ve got several that all look the same and you mix up which is which. Well, WizKids is here to help, as they’ve released their D&D Icons of the Realms: Classic Creatures set. This brings a bunch of baddies to your tabletops with new sculpts to help them stand out from previous iterations.

Those Dam Goblins RPG Adventure Up On Kickstarter

It seemed like a nice place, at the time. A valley that had a bit of a swamp problem, but nothing that couldn’t be fixed without a little dam. It turned the valley into a rather productive one, agriculturally-speaking. But now, there’s rumbling in the hills around the valley. Goblins.
Those Dam Goblins is a new fantasy adventure for various systems that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Masters and Minions 5th Edition Supplement Up On Kickstarter

Few villains work alone. You’ve got the leader of a criminal organization and their hordes of underlings. Or a cult leader and all their cultists. Or a dragon and all their dragonlings. Whatever the case, you have a Master and Minions, and that’s also what we’ve got in this 5th edition supplement that’s up on Kickstarter. Masters and Minions gives GMs stats and rules for using NPCs and villains, along with their followers, in your games.

Wyrmkeep Dungeons BW3: The Beast Below D&D Adventure Up On Kickstarter

I’m a big fan of anything that makes the job of a GM easier. Having been one, in many game systems, for decades at this point, I love when I get something that streamlines the process for everyone. And pre-made adventures are great at that. In this case, we’ve got The Best Below, a 5th Edition adventure for characters of 1st to 3rd level. It’s up on Kickstarter now.

Sometimes you want to get your D&D on and your group’s not there. Maybe you’re waiting for them to show up. Maybe you weren’t able to get everyone together. Maybe it’s not your regular gaming day.

And here we are again. Friday: threshold to the weekend. I’m sure many of you are gearing up for a weekend of gaming, possibly starting as early as when you get off of work. I’m looking to spend tomorrow at the LGS, hopefully getting in some games of Guild Ball and Bushido.

Wizards of the Coast Posts D&D Survey

Would you like to take a survey!?
Do you like RPGs? Do you like George Wendt? Would you play RPGs with George Wendt? Would you play a bean-eating RPG with George Wendt? Does anyone out there get these references?
If you answered “yes” to any of those questions… well… they’re not entirely pertinent to Wizards of the Coast, except maybe that first one. They’ve posted up a D&D Survey and would love to hear from you.

Dungeons & Dragons is a great game. However, it can, occasionally, be rough to try and keep up with everything for it.
