We're just two weeks (Twoooooo weeks!) away from the release of the new expansion for the Coriolis RPG from Free League Publishing. They've announced that Emissary Lost will be hitting store shelves on January 31st. Start saving your nickels now.
Free League Publishing
It's an RPG where it shows a guy on the back of a dinosaur-looking thing. So you know it's got my attention from the start. Free League Publishing is happy to announce that Forbidden Lands is now available. You can order your copy, or download a version, now.
It's often that you find an expansion for a board game that also counts as a stand-alone game ("expanshalone" is what I remember calling something like that back in the day). What you don't quite see so often is an RPG that's a stand-alone expansion. But that's what we have here. Mutant: Elysium is the 3rd of the Mutant: Year Zero RPG expansions, but while it's an expansion, it's also a stand-alone game on its own. The game is up on Kickstarter now.
Most fantasy RPGs have you running around as heroes looking to do good deeds in the world. Save the prisoners, overthrow the evil tyrant, stop the necromancer... that kind of thing. In Forbidden Lands, it's much less heroic wargaming as it is trying to scratch out a living in a world that obviously does not want you to survive. The new fantasy RPG will be coming to Kickstarter this December.
Sweden's two biggest RPG makers are joining forces. The folks at Free League Publishing and Jarnringen are becoming one company. This means taht games like Symbaroum, Mutant: Year Zero, and Tales From the Loop will all be made by one company. Considering the acclaim those titles have gotten, I expect big things from them going forward.
The gaming world collectively adored Tales From the Loop. Now, Free League Publishing is running a Kickstarter for the next in the series, the new stand-alone expansion, Things From the Flood. And, it would seem as though everyone's going pretty wild over it again (rightly so, mind you). Their campaign's off to one hell of a start.
Hey, it's got bears, so I'm interested.
