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.

Pathfinder/5th Edition Adventures Up On Kickstarter

Having pre-made adventures to toss at your players is always a handy thing for a GM. It really helps cut the prep time for games, and makes it so they can enjoy what’s going on as much as the players do, since a lot of the heavy lifting is done. Dark by Design is currently running a Kickstarter campaign that’s got two books just full of adventures for your parties to go on.

WizKids Announces Pathfinder Battles: Jungle of Despair Set

I just recently got into a new RPG group. The game takes place in a whole new world I’ve never played in before, with players I’ve never gamed with before. So it’ll be interesting to see how everything works out. The DM does use a gridded map for when we play, and brings out the minis for us to fight against. But with a game like that, it’s always tough to find just the right mini. Well, that’s where the plastic sets come in. In this case, WizKids has announced a new one. It’s Pathfinder Battles: Jungle of Despair.

Starfinder: Pact Worlds Now Available

In Starfinder, players can go anywhere they want within a vast universe of planets, moons, and stars. But just going haphazardly around isn’t going to be the best. Instead, it’s best to know what you’re getting into. That’s where the Pact Worlds book comes in. It gives you stats and info about 14 different major worlds.
And, I mean, you can go fight tyrannosaurus-aliens. How cool is that!?

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.

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.

Paizo Announces Pathfinder 2.0, Online Playtest Coming

Pathfinder is one of the most popular RPG systems out there. Paizo has long-ran this game, with dozens of supplements and even the Starfinder version that takes players up into the stars. But, as with every game, as it goes on, things can begin to feel old or stale, and it’s time to freshen them up. So Pathfinder is getting itself a new edition. There’ll be online playtest materials for the game, coming this August. Be on the lookout for that.

I love playing RPGs. However, finding enough locals to play can be tricky.

Blevik is a city dominated by doppelgangers. So, while it can be a nice place to visit, you’re never 100% sure who you might be interacting with.

Path of the Black Flag Pathfinder Supplement Up On Kickstarter

One of the series I watch on YouTube is Renegade Cut. Recently, they had a video about Anarchy as it pertains to the movie V for Vendetta. Anarchy isn’t quite what most of us think about, at least not in its traditional sense. And while I can’t say that I’m an Anarchist, it’s interesting to read about. Even if you’re not an Anarchist, either, you might want to bring some Anarchy into your RPGs. The Path of the Black Flag supplement for Pathfinder will let you do just that. It’s up on Kickstarter now.
Listening to the Sex Pistols not required while reading their pitch… but it helps.

Skirmisher Publishing Releases The Mutant Race Player’s Guide

Whenever DNA divides, there’s a chance that an error might be made, and the sequences aren’t 100% like they had been. When those new DNA bits recombine, it’s a mutation. Many times, mutations are bad. But, just occasionally, they can really cause some interesting and possibly beneficial things to happen in the organism. That’s where the Mutants come in. And if you want to play one in your Pathfinder games, Skirmisher Publishing has a whole player’s guide for you to check out.

Skirmisher Publishing Releases Coldblooded: A Player’s Guide to Lizardmen

While there’s certainly nothing wrong with playing a character in an RPG that’s an elf or a dwarf or a human or a halfling, but, for me, I always liked getting a bit more creative with it. Minotaurs, goliaths, and such like that. Well, if you want something a bit more scaly, Skirmisher Publishing has released Coldblooded: A Player’s Guide to Lizardmen.

Ponyfinder: Hidden Draft Book Now Available

Many of us know about the three main types of ponies: pegasi, unicorns, and earth ponies. Some of you might also know about gem ponies and a couple other types. Well, the Hidden Draft book for Ponyfinder gives us another type: The Krava. They’re ponies… or maybe not… Either way, there’s plenty of new options for players and GMs to make new and unique characters to encounter during your travels. The book is available now.

The Chapel on the Cliffs Horror Module Up On Kickstarter

Just because Halloween’s over doesn’t mean you have to put away all the scary stuff until next July 5th (seriously, that’s when I started seeing Halloween stuff this year). You can certainly infuse some horror into your RPG sessions. And a pre-made adventure like The Chapel on the Cliffs is a great way to do so. The module for Pathfinder is up on Kickstarter now.

Pathfinder Battles: Maze of Death Figures Now Available

When I’m playing an RPG, I like to have the right miniature on the board to represent what the PCs are fighting. And I know my PCs like to have a mini that as closely as possible represents their character. As such, it’s always good to have more options available. And that’s what we’re getting with Pathfinder Battles: Maze of Death. It’s a new set of figures available from WizKids.

Winter Eternal Campaign Setting Available From Just Insert Imagination

Well, civilization has collapsed again, this time because the sun exploded. Damnit, Todd. I told you to stop throwing rocks at it. Thankfully, things like a host start for your planet aren’t as necessary as you might think if you’ve got some powerful magic on your side. And the Nature Wardens were able to keep things warm enough to start camps that then grew into cities. That’s where you find yourself in Winter Eternal, a new Pathfinder setting from Just Insert Imagination. You can pick up a digital copy now, with print versions coming soon.

Modern Adventures for Pathfinder Coming to Kickstarter

Sometimes you want to game in a far-off, mystical land. Other times, you want to game in a far-off, sci-fi land. And sometimes you want to game right here on Earth in a modern setting. Though, while there’s lots of fantasy and sci-fi games, there’s not quite as many modern-setting games. Higher Grounds is looking to rectify that a bit with their Modern Adventures RPG setting for Pathfinder, coming to Kickstarter.

Dark Obelisk 2: Character Compendium for Pathfinder Up On Kickstarter

Players only have to worry about their own character, or maybe just a couple characters. But the GM/DM needs to deal with the entire rest of the planet… and the planes… and beyond!

Atlas Animalia Up On Kickstarter

For those that are fans of the Baby Bestiary, the folks behind it are back with another new book on Kickstarter. This one’s the Atlas Animalia.

There’s 15 different creatures in the base book, with more to be decided upon by backers. They are also creating pdfs that include stats to use the creatures in both Pathfinder as well as 5th Edition.

Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium Up On Kickstarter

Though I’ve not gone in quite some time, I do enjoy camping. Going out there into the woods and getting back to nature. Just gotta watch out for all the forest creatures and make sure you’re not invading their territory. It’s bad enough with bears and cougars and such, but then you’ve gotta watch out for elves and faeries and other Fey creatures. If you’re up for doing such, though, in your Pathfinder or Dungeons & Dragons games, you might want to pick up the Forest Kingdom Campaign Compendium that’s up on Kickstarter now.

You got your fantasy in my horror!
You got your horror in my fantasy!
Well, you both got your horror and fantasy in my post-apocalyptic!
Apocalypse the Risen is a little of this and a little of that. It’s listed as post-apocalyptic fantasy horror. It’s set on Earth after society has been utterly destroyed (so, ~28 years from now. … Kidding!). Demons have gotten a foothold and zombies are roaming the streets.

“Ok, it’s the Fighter’s turn. What do you do?”

The town of Ferryport has had some tough times recently. Merchant vessels are disappearing along the river west of town. So, simple case of river pirates, right? Just go in and beat ’em up and possibly get back some of the merchant loot. Badabing, badaboom. You’re done.
Not so fast, hot-shot adventurer-person. There’s a lot more going on in The Crossing, a new Pathfinder adventure for level 4 characters up on Kickstarter.

Sunken Temple Adventure Module Up On Kickstarter

It’s probably not a good sign when a temple that’s not been seen for millennia resurfaces. It’s even worse when monsters start coming out of it. But hey, there might be treasure in there! And, you know, you should probably do something about those monsters. Maybe find out why the temple’s back and make sure it’s not going to destroy the world or something. But really, it’s about the possible treasure. Sunken Temple is a new multi-system RPG adventure that’s up on Kickstarter now.

Paizo Announces Pocket Editions of Pathfinder Core Rulebook and Bestiary

One of the downsides of playing an RPG can be how many books you feel you need to carry around for it. I know I’ve been part of groups where I carry around a giant tub of books. A lot of people get around this by having electronic versions of those books. But some of us still love the feel of an actual book in our hands, as well as find printed type easier to read than on a screen. Well, the folks at Paizo are doing their bit to help out by coming out with “pocket editions” of the Pathfinder Core Rulebook and Bestiary.

Friday Snippets

Friiiiiiidaaaaaaay! The gateway to the weekend. Hopefully you’ve got some gaming planned for the next couple days. I don’t have anything specific lined up, but there’s still plenty of time. At the very least, I’m thinking I want to make some brownies this weekend. Though I might throw in something a little special…
That being cayenne pepper. You know, I’ve heard a lot about mixing “heat” with “sweet” and am finally gonna give it a go. I’ll let you know about the results.

On today’s platter we have: New Thousand Sons Legion Transfer Sheet From Forge World, Lead Adventure Miniatures Launches Astropolis Kickstarter, Terrible Kids Stuff Posts September New Releases, New Damage Trackers From Proxie Models, Syrinscape Releases Geek & Sundry’s Critical Role: Goblin Raid SoundPack, Code Orange Games Running Free Collision Model Giveaway Contest, Kromlech Weekend Promo: Jump Packs, Turncoat Games Running WWII Cavalry Kickstarter, and Sally 4th Posts Free Combat Patrol – Falklands War Supplement.

Paizo Announces Bestiary 6 for Pathfinder

You’ve got heroes in your RPG. Unless you plan on having them just sitting in the tavern, sipping ale and not doing much of anything, you’ll need some monsters for them to go and attack. It’s sort of what heroes tend to do. But what sort of monsters will they go fight? Paizo is helping out with that last one. They’re working on Bestiary 6, which will bring not just ordinary monsters to your tabletop, but also some rather legendary ones as well.
