In many fantasy RPGs, technology and magic has been fairly static for quite a long time. Things have been the way they are for hundreds of years. Now, think about our own world and what things were like in 1920 compared to here in 2020. Age of Ambition looks to fix the problem of stagnant fantasy worlds staying the same forever with a new place filled with invention and change. The new RPG is up on Kickstarter now.

Having pre-made adventures can be a lifesaver for a GM with a game session coming up and no time to prep for it. But what if you've already burned through the adventures you have on-hand? Thankfully, Laidback DM is here to turn you into a laidback DM yourself with Shotglass Adventures III. It's a set of 10 adventures for 5th edition that you can just plug into your games at your leisure. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

All of these can be purchased now from Free League Publishing.

We've made it to Tuesday. The work week is well underway. Time to hunker down and finally finish of the first month of the year. Has it taken an eternity for anyone else? To think that 2019 was still less than a month ago seems wild. It seems centuries. Anyway, I'm excited because yesterday I had a hot sauce so good, it transported me to a different part of my life for a moment. I'm going to have more for lunch today. In the meantime, to speed things along to that point, I'm going to listen to some gaming podcasts.

This week on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 84: Top 10 Most Anticipated RPGs of 2020 with Shane Stacks; Game Classy Episode 203: We lost the first 15 minutes; Nerdherders Episode 35 (126): Year End Review for 2019; The Secret Cabal Episode 199: Flotilla, Nemesis, Professor Evil and the Citadel of Time and The Death of the Acquisition Disorder; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 190: Sorcerer City, Masters of Renaissance Lorenzo il Magnifico: The Card Game, Fox in the Forest Duet; and Tabletop Talk Episode 58: Marvel Crisis Protocol: In-Depth Look.

Diea Games is working on a new board game they'll soon be bringing to Kickstarter. It's called Euthia: Torment of Resurrection and it puts players in the role of heroes in the land of Euthia. Three dragons have taken up residence and rule over the land as tyrannical leaders. It's up to the heroes to gain experience, get gear, and eventually take out the dragons.

When you want to fill your day with gaming information, you can't go wrong with a gaming magazine. Game Nite Magazine has been doing that for years now, and they've got their next issue available for you to check out. You can grab your copy of issue 41 now. It's free, so why not!? I already have my copy.

Tanks the size of city blocks that are an army unto themselves. That's what an OGRE is. Steve Jackson's game of sci-fi combat is getting a new wave of figures in the form of two inconic vehicles. Wave 3 of this miniatures game is available to pre-order now.

When you're a GM, you need to come up with everything in the universe except the PCs in your games. That can be a rather daunting task. Thankfully, there's a host of material out there to help. A new one coming soon is Niwri's Marvelous Menagerie of the Multiverse. If you're looking to populate your game with all manner of creatures great and small, this is the supplement to get. It's up on Kickstarter now.

Every superhero has their own, unique power set. So does every villain. Be it super strength, ultra intelligence, or they're a robot, there's always something going on. In this preview of the upcoming Marvel United game, we get a look inside how the Hero and Villain decks work in the game and what makes each of them different.
