Role Playing Games


A new anthology book of adventures is available to order from River Horse for Tails of Equestria. It's called The Curious Case of the Malfunctioning P.R.A.N.C.E.R., because they're fighting with Cryptozoic over who has the longer game name. Will your ponies be able to solve a myriad of issues, each of which will test them in new and exciting ways? Find out when you get your copy.

Modiphius is known for taking various licenses and turning them from their regular medium and turning them into tabletop games. In this instance, it's the Dishonored video game that's getting the tabletop treatment. Modiphius has announced that they're working with Arkane Studios to turn their video game into a tabletop RPG. It will use a streamlined version of the 2d20 system that they've used for other games in their line.

Awight! I shaw wewease... WOGAAAH!!!

I guess we now know who at least let this particular dog out. Roger's a big, happy, babypuppy pitty (with that giant bowling ball head that they have), and he just looks so happy to be here. Or, at least, he will be happy to be here when Painting Polygons launches their Animal Adventures: Secrets of Gullet Cove Kickstarter campaign in just a couple days.

And the award for "most interesting title of the day" goes to The Forgotten Rights of the Moldering Dead, an RPG supplement that's all about giving you more information about that most classic of RPG monsters: undead. But not just a monster book, there's all sorts of things in there, including funerary rights, laments, processions and celebrations, and many ways to update the undead in your games. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

A GM can never have too many resources at their fingertips when running a game. That's my honest opinion. Creating everything from scratch is hard, so having pre-made monsters of all type, in particular, is very helpful. That's where the people of Carwood Publishing come in with thier Monsters of the City series of books. There's a new one up on Kickstarter called Sins & Virtues that has 100 more pre-made monsters for you to throw at your party.

The Trophy RPG is actually two different games. Trophy Dark is a psychological horror one-shot game while Trophy Gold is a campaign game. But in both, players take on the role of treasure hunters who are trying to, well, find treasures. However, the world they're searching around in actively fights against them every step of the way. If you're looking for a dark, gritty game, this one might just be for you. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

We've seen several doggos for the Secrets of Gullet Cove, coming soon from Painting Polygons. However, canines aren't the only creatures coming. More felines will be making their way to production, including McCoy. Have a look at this fuzzy fluffball in this preview.

Many people all over the world are Polytheistic. That means that there's multiple gods that they will pray to on a regular basis, and possibly many more that they believe in but don't specifically worship. While many fantasy realms are polytheistic ones, most RPGs still expect your characters to simply follow one. But what if you want a polytheistic character? Well, in the upcoming Lost Omens Gods & Magic book from Paizo for Pathfinder, you'll be able to do that.

Catalyst Game Labs had been mostly silent since last year, but they're getting into 2020 with some new Shadowrun products for you. If you've been wanting to check out the game, there's an updated core rulebook pdf. But there's also a GM screen and the Cutting Black book you can pick up if you're well on your way into the game.

Who's a good boy? Who's a good boy!?!

Well, if anyone is, it's probably Reximus, the Doberman Paladin. Paladins tend to be well into the "good" side of the alignment chart, at least. Reximus will be one of the new doggos coming in Animal Adventures: Secrets of Gullet Cove, the new adventure from Painting Polygons as part of their Dungeons & Doggies line, coming to Kickstarter in a week.

Using the Deck of Many Worlds, GMs can quickly and easily create their own planets for use in Starfinder games. Now, Paizo is looking to see what you are coming up with. They've got a contest going where GMs can create a design for a world and possibly have it written up officially by the Starfinder team. Will your world get chosen?

Some of you might have heard or read the Mighty Tiny manga. For those that haven't, it's a far-off, distant future where mankind is no more. However, mice and rats have evolved to have human-like characteristics. The two groups almost never mix, and an uneasy peace exists between the two nations. However, tensions are brewing. Can a war be avoided? That's your goal in Mighty Tiny: Tales of the Old Empire, a new RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

The Kickstarter campaign for the next Animal Adventures book, Secrets of Gullet Cove, draws ever closer. As it draws near, Painting Polygons is showing off some of the figures that will be inside. This time around, we get Bartolomy, the bard. Though not one to sing, he does tell tales and weave poems for the enjoyment of all around.

And he's got just the biggest floopears ever!

Wizards of the Coast has announced a new book for Dungeons & Dragons. It's called Explorer's Guide to Wildemount and will give players all the information required in order to successfully navigate the continent in Exandria. However, even if you're using it for just whatever game you might be playing at the time, the book will offer a whole new set of character subclasses, spells, monsters, and more. Expect this book on store shelves this March.

In just under 2 weeks (twooooooooooo weeks!), players will have a new adventure to go on in the epic world of Symbaroum. Free League Publishing has announced Symbar - Mother of Darkness, their next adventure in the Chronicle of the Crown of Thorns adventure path. Though, even if you're not playing along the entire way, GMs can certainly find a way to introduce the concepts into their games.

Along with the book, there's going to be a new GM screen, a map, and another softcover book coming that day. Let's check it out.

This post is just setting off all my Primus senses. Extinction Curse is like Extinction Burst. The circus makes me think of Mr. Krinkle and Prof. Nutbutter. It's just all going on. But while I have rockin' bass licks going through my brain, let's talk about the free-to-download Extinction Curse Player's Guide now available from Paizo. If you're playing on the adventure path of the same name, this is an invaluable resource. But even if you're not, it's new options for your characters. So, why not check it out?

Todaaaaaaaay's going to be the greeeeeeeeeeeeeeatest day of your liiiiiiiiiiiiiiife!

When creating the world for an RPG, there aren't any real limitations. You can go about creating pretty much anything you want, as you are, after all, creating everything yourself. So, if you want a game where characters of extremely immense power, strong enough to destroy entire worlds, decide to not actually go planet-hunting and instead solve mysteries, you can do that. And they have. It's called Glitch and it's up on Kickstarter now.

What happens when the test subjects realize that they're test subjects? Will they continue on in captivity and help with the research? Or will they break out of their isolation? That's up to you to decide in Fungi Fight for Freedom, a new adventure for the Endless Realms RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

Skirmisher Publishing knows that being a GM is rough. You've gotta build entire worlds, including rather intricate cities. Their City Builder series of books is designed to help out, and they've been working at updating them for a while now. In this instance, they have the newly-updated Armories, Blacksmithies, & Other Craftsman Places book (City Builder Volume 2, for short) that you can download now.

Well, from what I've seen, we weren't really supposed to know about this yet, but Amazon has started taking orders for the upcoming Explorer's Guide to Wildemount, an official Dungeons & Dragons book for the Critical Role show. If you've been a fan of the show and you've wanted to get down into the realm they play in, soon, you'll be able to do exactly that.

The Gamma Quadrant. Home of the Dominion. Not exactly the nicest place in the galaxy, if we're being honest. But that's just why the Federation is sending you in. What will you find as you boldly go into this new region of space? You're not entirely sure, but you've been given a primer in the form of the Star Trek Adventures: Gamma Quadrant Sourcebook. Better read up and know it inside and out. You do wear a red shirt, after all...

Dig in the dark is a gas. Baby, can you dig it?

Everyone knows about the residents on the land in Everglow. And they even know about the societies that reside up in the air above it. But what about those civilizations that are deep underground? They're a bit more mysterious, but they're what you'll be searching and finding out about in Depths of Everglow, a new supplement book for Ponyfinder. You can pick up your copy now.

Free League Publishing is adding to their game library. They've got Tales From the Loop. They've got the official Alien RPG. Now, they've picked up Coriolis from Paradox Interactive. What does this mean for the future of the award-winning game? We'll just have to see.

The Age of Ashes adventure path for Pathfinder is coming to an end. For those that have been journeying along, the final reckoning is at hand. Though, even if you've not played the other 5 adventures in this campaign, you can still use Broken Promises to add some spark to your games. This new adventure is available now.
