Cakebread & Walton


Michael Scott Rohan is an award-winning British author of the Winter of the World novels. Cakebread & Walton has announced that they will be making a tabletop RPG game based on those novels. So now lovers of the books (as well as any gamer who wants to play in a very fleshed-out setting with hundreds of pages written about it) can add their heroes to those already established in the book series.

Mystical Throne Entertainment wants to have their Cakebread and eat it, too... Or at least, they want to have their Cakebread & Walton. They've teamed up together to bring you the Dark Streets game and develop it as a setting guide for 1850s Five Points, New York. This is a step away from Savage Worlds and the Entropic Gaming System, wherein Dark Street's Lovecraftian setting is pulled into the slums of Five Points. The area has somewhat the same feel as 1750's London, but with a whole new angle on it.

The Game Publishers Guild is a group of small, independent role-playing game publishers who have banded together in order to help strengthen their overall forces in this topsy-turvy world of gaming. Initially created by Aaron Huss of Mystical Throne Entertainment, the 7 charter members (Arcanum Syndicate, Cakebread & Walton, DramaScape, Imaginary Empire, Mystical Throne Entertainment, Rogue Games and Scrying Eye Games) hope that by joining together, they can achieve greater reach through conventions and retailers, where such action had not been previously possible.
Membership is open and if you're interested in joining, you can contact any of the Guild members to see about the application process.

From the Release:

OneDice Fantasy is a game set in a world of elves and dwarves, sorcerers and dragons. Whether you want to play in a setting of your own devising, or adventure in one of the three fantasy eras described within, all the rules you need are in this book – races and professions, five magic systems, an extensive bestiary and a short adventure to get your campaign going. You can play as a barbarian hero fighting evil necromancers, a dwarven cleric battling gnomish technology, or a trollish warrior saving the world from an army of invading demons – whatever your fantasy tastes, this is the game for you!

The OneDice system is easy to pick up and play. Everything you need (except for pencils, paper, and an ordinary six-sided dice) is in this book.

From the announcement:

For the last few years, our books have been published by Cubicle 7 Entertainment, but from now on we’re going it alone. Our popular and award-winning role-playing games and settings, including Clockwork & Chivalry, Abney Park’s Airship Pirates, Renaissance Deluxe, Clockwork & Cthulhu and Dark Streets, are available as PDFs, and over the coming weeks, they’ll start to become available as print-on-demand products from DriveThruRPG. This means that some of our products which have been out of print for a while (such as the UK Games Expo Award-winning steampunk RPG, Abney Park’s Airship Pirates core rulebook) will be available again, and many of our volumes will be available in hardback for the first time.

Cakebread & Walton relaunched their Pirates & Dragons RPG Kickstarter. And the retooling must've worked out well, since they're already over their funding goal. So it's stretch goals for the next 29 days.



From the campaign:

Pirates Love Gold! Dragons Love Gold! When the terrors of the sea meet the terrors of the sky, there's bound to be trouble!

They came from Albion, from Gaule and Esbania and Batavia, in search of the treasures of the New World. They found a menace older than mankind – dragons! In their mountain lairs on the Dragon Isles, giant beasts – old and wise and malevolent – sit on their piles of gold, surrounded by their zombie minions. The natives have found ways of appeasing or evading them – the Dragon Tribes honour them with gold and human sacrifice, the other Islanders use their magic to hide away or resist. The Uropans must rely on gunpowder and cold steel. And the pirates? The pirates will use whatever comes to hand in their battle with the dragons. Armed with science, sorcery, steel and superstition, they take the fight into the dragons’ lairs in their endless quest for gold.
