Adding to that, there's a Faction Book, GM screen, Tokens, and more that you can pick up so you've got everything you need to get playing and then some.

Many of us are stuck at home right now. So, at-best, we can play our RPGs with friends over virutal tabletops. Most games aren't designed for this. Gunship is. It's a new sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. It's got a space-Western feel to it. So, saddle up your starship and head into the farthest reaches of space.

Silver Games has been working on more than just Ponyfinder. They've also got Tails of the City, a new RPG Adventure that's up on Kickstarter now. If you're playing Pathfinder 1st or 2nd edition or Dungeons & Dragons 5th, it's statted out for you. Head on over and check it out.

Sure, we're just getting into Spring (here in the North, anyway), but that doesn't mean you can't have some spooky and scary in your life. Horror in the Windy City is a turn-of-the-last-century setting book that'll make the horrors of Chicago even more horrifying. It's on Kickstarter with the accompanying The Devil's City novella.

Tuesday. The work week is underway. I hope yours is treating you as well as it can during these strange times. I'm making it through as I can. I will attempt to get groceries on Thursday. We'll see how that works. It'll be my first time out of the bear den in 2 weeks. Need to restock the supplies for another couple weeks. We'll see how it goes. In the meantime, I need to get you some podcasts to listen to.

Today on the dial we have: Morrus' Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk Episode 94: RPG Superstar and Pathfinder 2e with Owen KC Stephens and Stephen Glicker; Rolling Dice & Taking Names Episode 195: Wonder Woman, Half Truth, Pathfinder Supplement, Scurry Report Deep Dive; Plaid Hat Games Podcast Episode 3: Hot Topic; Tabletop Talk Episode 68: Why Ray (and you) Should be Playing Skytear; The Secret Cabal Episode 204: Viticulture, Vindication, Shadows of Brimstone, Wendake and Living without a Game Group; The Offline Gamer Episode 46: Under Lockdown; and The D6 Generation Pip 39: Infinity CodeOne, N4, & Adepticon.

Most of us can't get out to the game shops right now. We're at home and are simply staying put. But that doesn't mean you can't get a new game on your table. Asmodee has posted up a handful of games that you can download and print and play right now, including multiple languages. Head on over and get them now. Oh, and they're free!

So, there proabably aren't many Star Wars: Legion tournaments going on right now. But that actually makes it a good time to update the tourney rules, as everyone will have a chance to study up before the next time they hit the table. Fantasy Flight has done just that. You can get these updated rules and regulations now. And even if you don't play in tourneys, there's something for you in there.

When you get a game, of course you want to know what's inside it. You can leave that up to finding out when you get it, but you might want to know ahead of time. Well, if you're wanting to know what's in the Forgotten Waters box, you're in luck, as Plaid Hat Games has posted up an unboxing video on their site.

Professional wrestling. It's a hoot. It's all the high-fling action of Cirque De Soliel with the drama and pathos of Telenovellas. And this Wednesday, it's coming to Starfinder. Paizo will be running a game and introducing X.T.R.E.M. wrestling to the game.

As with any game, especially a complex one, there's going to be questions about how the rules work and different interactions between them. And with a game like Dungeons & Dragons, those interactions can get rather complex, indeed. Well, WotC is here to help. They've updated their Sage Advice Compendium to give you all the info you need to make sure you're playing the game with the rules as intended.
