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.

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.

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.

PDF and electronic versions of books are nice. You can carry a whole library with you in your pocket. But... I don't know, man, there's just something about having an actual book in your hands. I love it. If you're like me and you've been wanting to get a physical copy of Skirmisher Publishing's best-selling City Builder book, you now can in hardcover.

Information is key during this time. You want to know what's going on outside while you're inside. You want to know when things will hopefully start to normalize out a bit. To help keep you in the know, Paizo has been posting regular updates during this crisis. They've got a new one up, including a look at what they will be releasing this month.

At times like these, where many places are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many companies are looking for ways to still sell product. In this case, it's virtual vouchers. So, while the Games Workshop offices and warehouses are closed, you can still buy vouchers for the company so you can still support them during this time. It's a vital thing that people who can manage it should take advantage of so we can ensure our favorite companies and places can still be open after all this is over.

As the DM/GM, you've gotta come up with every aspect of the game world the players will explore. That can be rough. Thankfully, there's pre-made settings that you can add to your own game for a quick and easy bit of world-building. In this case, we have Draharsis, a set of three islands that are filled with mysteries. You can find this setting book up on Kickstarter now.

A new pdf sourcebook for the Conan RPG is available from Modiphius. It's Conan the Wanderer and it heads to a region that Conan actually didn't have much exposure to during his life.

It's been a while since we've heard from them, but the folks over at Avatars of War are still working hard, even in these strange times. They've even got a pair of new releases over in their webshop for you. If you're looking for some new fantasy minis, now's your chance to get some.

We all tyop from time to tiem. That's just life. Most of the time, it just leads to a nonsense word. However, occasionally, you can create a real gem with a typo. Well, the folks at Paizo have been saving some of these typoes and turning them into monsters for Pathfinder. They've got full stats and you can add them to your game now.

Halfway through the week and we're at the beginning of a new month. Welcome to April, everyone. Considering how things are in the world right now? I say we skip out on April Fool's. Alright? Good. But what we shouldn't skip out on are some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Legendary Dragons 3D Printable Files Up On Kickstarter and Blacklist Miniatures Previews Huge Dragon From Upcoming Kickstarter.

Considering nobody can really go out right now, and even deliveries are tough to get, pdfs is the name of the game when it comes to, well, gaming. And Modiphius is here to help with some for you for nothing. They've got their The Elder Scrolls Call to Arms Core Rulebook, as well as two free scenario books up on their website that you can download now.

Planning. Thinking ahead. Knowing what you're going to do. It's important in many situations, but vital right now. It's also going to be a major part of the upcoming Forgotten Waters game from Plaid Hat. So much so that it's got its own phase: the appropriately named Planning Phase. It's that which we get a preview of here today.

Ok, so the Romans actually existed (and, I mean, they still exist). And Warlords of Erehwon is a fantasy game. However, there are many mythical and legendary things about the Roman Legions of ancient times and so the folks over at Warlord Games have decided that, sure, you can use your Roman Legions in games of Warlords. Why not? Head on over and check out this new army list.

I know for a fact that you can still play your RPGs while practicing social distancing. I played just this past weekend, for example, while nobody was in the same apartment as me. And since you can still get pdfs without having to worry about shipping woes. So, Paizo's got their Spring Social event going on where you can save on their products over in their webshop.

What do you love about D&D adventures? What do you hate? What would you like to see more of? What level makes them the most useful? What sort of tables and charts help out? It's going to be a little different for everyone, but still, Elderbrain is looking to create the Best D&D Adventure and they want your help. They've posted up an extensive survey and are asking gamers to partake.

Anyone who's watched Ancient Aliens knows that some ancient cultures had materials or ways of doing things that we don't have anymore. Though they'll try and tell you that it was aliens that did it. But really, sometimes information is just lost. Well, that can happen in your fantasy RPG games, too. Skirmisher Publishing brings these fantasic materials to your games in their Materials of Ancient Empires book. You can get your copy now.

Recently, a bunch of different governments put out updated guidelines for closings during the worldwide outbreak. Pretty much anything considered vital has been closed down. To comply with all these new regulations, Games Workshop is closing down their locations and to make sure that they're not spreading it via the mail, they're limited online sales as well.

I'm surprised they're closing down their online sales as well. I mean, its not like we don't all have piles of minis we should have painted a long time ago, but when the end of the world is nigh, don't you just want to splurge for a huge Forge World Great Unclean One?

Normally, the different monsters and other creatures added to RPGs are out there to attack the party in some form. But with how things are right now, Paizo thought about going a different direction by adding the Amabie to Pathfinder. This is a much more friendly character that your party can come across.
