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.
In the world of Contagion, there's a secret war going on in the shadows. Just out of view, unknown by basically every person on Earth, there's a battle going on between various factions for the control of not just the Earth, but all of the souls of its inhabitants. It's not just Angels and Demons, either. Various other factions look to carve out their own spheres of influence. Well, that "shadow war" is about to become a lot less shadowy. That's the set-up for Slouching Towards Bethlehem, a new expansion for Contagion 2nd Edition, and it's up on Indiegogo now.
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.
Well, we're working our way through it. The work week is just about half-over. I hope it's going well for you. It's been alright over here. Gotten a lot of stuff done already this week. Hoping to keep the productivity up.

Anyway, at the moment, we've got some snack-sized stories for you to munch on.

Today's installments include: WizKids Show and Event Schedule for 2016 Posted, Two New Helmet Styles Available From Puppets War, New Infinity Tokens Available From Warsenal, Tor Gaming Player Survey Up Now, New Iron Reich Goblin Commander From Kromlech, New Bonefield Round-Lip Base Deals Available From Tabletop-Art, Syrinscape’s Turn of the Torrent SoundPack Now Available, and Summoner Wars Second Summoner Playtesting Starting.

Beware of fine print. Also, while necessity may be the mother of invention, desperation can also lead to some rather poor life... or after-life... choices. They say to beware of Greeks bearing gifts. The same could be said for demons bearing contracts.
Aegis Studios has released another of their War Stories supplements for Contagion Second Edition. This one, Faith vs. Faithlessness, explores a new aspect of the Contagion setting: how your faith can be an actual source of energy. Your beliefs can be used to bring you power or, if you run into the wrong person/demon, can be drained from you to fuel their own nefarious ends. That's just what's happening in this book.
Aegis Studios has another in their War Stories series of enhancements for Contagion Second Edition available. This time it's Fog of War. In this book, you'll see how your actions can have unintended consequences and doing good sometimes lead to a lot more... especially if you interrupt a demon.
Some say that various famous guitar players made a deal with the devil in order to get their almost-mythical skills. And lord knows there are plenty of conspiracy theories around various celebrities. Well, what if at least one of those stories was true? War Stories: The Call, a new setting enhancement book for Contagion Second Edition lets you know what could happen if that was the case.
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).
Aegis Studios has a new setting expansion book for Contagion Second Edition. K-24 brings you to one of the most... unique places... yeah, we'll go with unique... by bringing Contagion to North Korea. Why North Korea? Because if you were going to build a prison for supernatural beings, wouldn't that be your first pick of an inconspicuous place? Let's face it, even if the story got leaked, "Supernatural prison found in North Korea" is something you'd expect the tabloids to run as a headline already.
The old gods have returned, and you could be one of them! Aegis Studios has released a new supplement for Contagion 2nd edition. It's called Rise of the Ilu. In it, it gives players the option of playing the long-missing Ilu race, or their spawn, the Ikkibu. Or, even if you don't get to play as one, there's plenty of resources for your GM to incorporate them into your game sessions.
Aegis Studios has launched their Indiegogo campaign for Contagion: Rise of the Ilu.


From the campaign:

Rise of the Ilu is a 192-page supplement for the Contagion Second Edition Role-Playing Game published by Aegis Studios. This full-color supplement will include rules for playing members of the Ilu race, or as humans call them: gods. Whether a Gamemaster wishes to introduce the Ilu as a shadowy threat in the background, or run a campaign in which players assume the roles of these ancient deities, Rise of the Ilu includes everything you need to take your Contagion Second Edition campaign to a celestial level!

Rise of the Ilu contains:
Aegis Studios expands the supplements for Contagion: Second Edition, with the release of Practical Magic.

Practical Magic


From the release:

The world of Contagion is a dark and terrifying place. On the surface, it looks much like the world you and I live in. Just beneath that surface, in the shadows, rages an ancient conflict between supernatural factions who all seek dominion over the Earth and control over the souls of humanity.

Magic is real in the world of Contagion. Clergy pray to their God for miracles. Magi learn to harness magic in its purest, rawest form. Witches and Shaman use tools passed down through the ages to work their intrinsic art. Magic is a potent force in the world of Contagion. A tool used by the initiated to level the playing field in a world filled with gods and monsters. Like any tool, magic also has practical, everyday uses.
