Choe Pho Fantasy Setting Now Available

Most of the fantasy settings we hear about are ancient ones with histories stretching back millions of years, with countless civilizations that have risen and fallen over the vast stretches of time. Choe Pho isn't like most fantasy settings. Instead, it is a relatively new world. It was created by the Council of Enlightenment as a secret, secure place that's far away from the reaches of the Ilu. The inhabitants of the world live on the Isle of Hope, heading out to the Plains of Morrow in order to bring order to the chaos. This new setting book, originally coming from Contagion Second Edition, is now available.

Savage Worlds Edition of Contagion Now Available

Sometimes you see a game world that you think is really cool, but you're not sure you can get your group to try it out because it's not a system they like using. Sure, you could do your best to convert everything over to an equivalent in your group's desired system, but that can be rather tedious. Well, the folks over at Aegis Studios have helped out for those groups that like the Savage Worlds system by converting their Contagion game to use it.

Fifth Edition Urban Fantasy Races Guide Now Available

While a lot of us might think of dark forests and faraway dungeons when we think of a Fantasy RPG world, there's plenty that can go on in an urban environment. It doesn't take a sci-fi game to have your characters skulking around a bustling metropolis, looking for whatever horrible things might be going on that they can make right. Well, DMs should make an effort to fix that and bring more campaigns to an urban setting. And Aegis Studios is here to help with their Urban Fantasy Races Guide.

TGN Sunday Snippets

It's another Guns 'N' Roses Weather Day here in GA. We've had one just about every day so far of this month. I'm certainly happy about that. Though I've never lived in the PNW, I've always sort of wanted to, and if popular media is anything to go by, it's like this 365 days of the year. Listening to Soundgarden and Nirvana when it's like this just feels... appropriate.
Though it does mean that glue is taking longer to set as I try and put together this Betrayal at Calth set. But waddyagonnado?

In the meantime, we've got a small batch of bite-sized stories for you today.

They include: There is still time to be a part of The Campaigner Survey 2015, Epic Generator Season 2 is Released, Deraj Studios Launches Slavic Fantasy Miniatures, and Aegis Studios releases Armory 1 under the Hero Kids Compatible License.

Superstring Multiverse Worldbook 2 Now Available from Aegis Studios

One of the many things that The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy taught me is that there are multiple dimensions out there... or out here... or... just... in existence. So in some other dimension, super heroes exist. Unfortunately, we got sort of a lame-o dimension and we just get to read about super heroes in our fiction and in our RPGs. Aegis Studios, with their Superstring Multiverse books, let your Mutants & Masterminds characters travel to alternate dimensions in order to fight crime. The second book is now available.

This one, Faith vs. Faithlessness, explores a new aspect of the Contagion setting: how your faith can be an actual source of energy.

War Stories: Prophetic Dreams is Now Available for Contagion Second Edition

The world you know is not real. It's just a thin veneer covering a much darker world. When you play Contagion, you get a chance to see beyond what is just real and into a much more intricate world full of supernatural factions all looking to become masters of humanity's souls. War Stories: Prophetic Dreams takes a look at one person who can see through the veil. In this case, Cassie (and presumably her polar teddy bear as well).
