The spells in D&D all have these fantasical descriptions of what happens when you cast them. However, in light of trying to not make the book an extra several hundred pages, they just give those short text blurbs. Well, the Complete Illustrated Book of Conjuration looks to fix that, giving you detailed drawings of just what's going on when your character casts one of these spells. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Deep in the woods, an evil from beyond our time has once more started stirring, brought back by a group of unwitting travelers. Some of them have already been possessed. Now, they have to figur out who's who, who they can trust, and who they must destroy. That's the story behind Forsaken Forest. The new expansion, Spirit Uprising, is on Kickstarter now. It brings in new interactions, new synergies, and just overall more for this social-deduction game.

Next week, you'll be able to start playing Starfinder by simply stating your intention to do so, even if you're all alone in your home. No, you won't be going crazy, you'll be playing Starfinder on your Amazon Alexa. Yes, the popular sci-fi RPG is going to be available on the smart home device and all you'll have to do is say, "Alexa, play Starfinder!" to get going.

Every setting out there for your RPGs has different levels of fiction added to it. Some might be high fantasy, with lots of magic and different races and all that kind of stuff. Others might tone things down a bit and make everything more realistic. That's what Medieval, Tales from Europe looks to do. It's a D&D supplement that takes place in Medieval Europe and tries to be somewhat accurate to how life was (with an adventuring flair, of course). The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Free League Publishing and Modiphius are coming together to bring you the official Alien RPG. Based on the horror movie classic of space truckers looking to survive against the terrifying xenomorph, the RPG puts you right into that terrifying universe. Will you be able to make it out alive? You can pick up your copy of the core game and accessories now.

This time of year (well, any time of year, really), we all want to save some money and make each dollar go a little further. When you get on board the Humble Bundle train, you can really get some great stuff for little money, and of course, it goes to a good cause. Paizo has a new Pathfinder Humble Bundle going on now. Have yourselves a look.

Players want options. There's always that extra bit of gear that they want that will be perfect for their character. But what if there isn't just the right one available now? That's where Magic Items Unchained comes in. It's a set of over 60 new magic item cards with all new items to make your character look amazing. The set is up on Kickstarter now.

GiantLands is a new RPG from game creator James Ward. It's a post-apocalyptic setting where giants have once more risen up to take over the world (hence the name). It's got a classic feel, thanks to having been worked on by an industry veteran of more than 40 years. You can go check out the Kickstarter campaign now.

More resources are never a bad thing when it comes to being a GM. The more you can look at and use for your game, the better. So, if you're a Pathfinder GM and you're looking for a new campaign, you should check out Ennervain, a new one that's up on Kickstarter now. It's a new, dark-fantasy world full of modern takes on classic issues.

We're in the future, everyone. Pretty much every movie I watched as a kid that took place "in the future" without being the super-future, we've passed it by. So what is futuristic is retro. Hence, Retropunk. That's where you head in this sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

A new Celtic-based RPG is up on Kickstarter. It's called The Children of Eriu and it takes place in the Fate of the Norns universe. This game does its very best to accurately recreate the world based on actual traditions and tales, having done its homework in the form of lots and lots of research.

Discuss

Many of you have tried out Cha'alt, the megadungeon, setting, character guide all wrapped into one. But what if you want to explore some other regions and areas of the world and go on a different adventure? Well, now you can (or at least, soon you can) with Fuschia Malaise, the first official adventure to come out for the setting. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

So, for a long time, I've wanted to have a character that was a dragon in Dungeons & Dragons. Not a Dragonborn, but an actual dragon. I know, compared to regular characters, that would be pretty hard to balance, with the character either having to be toned down a ton or would just be super-broken. But if everyone was playing dragons, that wouldnt' be an issue. And that's what you get to be in Year of Rogue Dragons, a new D&D adventure that's available now on DM's Guild.

Discuss

A GM can never have too many options, if you ask me. Being able to just grab and go with stats for monsters to throw at the party can be simply invaluable. Thankfully, there's a lot of those types of resources out there, and soon there will be another one with Monsters & Demigods, a new monster manual for 5th edition that's up on Kickstarter now.

I've got D&D coming up this weekend. I'm certainly excited about it. You never know just what you're going to get into, who you might fight against. That's why having a diverse set of minis is good to have on-hand. WizKids is helping expand your collection with Icons of the Realms: Volo’s and Mordenkainen’s Foes, their latest set of figures. You can pick them up at your local gaming store now.

Mind powers, Swede. Mind powers.

As Ministry told us, a mind is a terrible thing to taste, but we're taking a big ol' bite out of it with The Seer, a new psionic class for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now. This new class is much more than simply "I cast all the same spells a regular caster does, but I do it by thinking hard about it," and looks to make the character class much more unique in its execution.

A Christmas Carol. Charles Dickens' classic tale of Ebeneezer Scrooge and his return to loving all things Christmas with help from the ghosts of Christmast Past, Present, and Future. It's a story that many of us know by heart. But now, you'll be able to experience it on a whole new level with the A Christmas Carol Adventure, a 5th edition RPG adventure and miniatures that's up on Kickstarter now.

This time of year, GMs might want to do something extra special with their gaming sessions to add in a bit of extra holiday cheer. Well, if you're one such GM, you might want to check out 'TWAS - The Roleplaying Game Before Christmas. It's holiday. It's fright. It's adventure. It's got it all and it's up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

If there's one thing that players want with their RPGs, it's options. More options. Players want more ways to make their characters. GMs want more ways to build their worlds (or alternate worlds to play around in). It's a little bit of everything. That's where books like the Arclands Player's Guide come in. It's a resource for both players and GMs that includes information about the world of Hermia, as well as new races, classes, and other options for players. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Discuss

Sometimes, you just want something a little -more-. You want something a little fancier. You've got the regular version, but you want to jazz it up a little. That's where deluxe editions come in, and that's what Modiphius is bringing you with Rangers of Shadow Deep Deluxe Edition, for which they are taking pre-orders now.

Discuss

Not ever Kickstarter goes as intended. That's just a fact of life. Well, just because it's not going great doesn't mean that you have to totally abandon the project. With some reconfiguring, retooling, and reflection, a relaunch can be much more successful. That's what's going on with Kisarta, a new fantasy setting for 5th edition. The first Kickstarter was cancelled, but this new one is already more than 2x funded.

GMs have the task of creating all of existence. That can get to be daunting, especially when dealing with a city. Thankfully, there's resources out there for them, such as the City Builder series from Skirmisher Publishing. They've just released an updated version of City Builder 6: Banks, Pawnshops, Trade Fairs & Other Mercantile Places (just rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it?). Considering the amount of buying, selling, and trading that adventurers get up to, this will definitely be a handy book to have.

When it comes to ancient standing stones, the best bet is to just let them be. However, a construction company has gotten the rights to develop the area. Before they get to putting in a new minimall, archeologists have one last chance to see what's going on. Now, the local town has been swallowed by a mysterious mist. Just what is going on in Haltwhistle? That's up to you to find out in Beneath the Stones, a new adventure for Liminal that's available now from Modiphius.

Skirmisher Publishing is just one of many companies that have their products on sale online over at DriveThruRPG right now. However, I'm calling them out specifically because they're a pretty awesome company of some pretty keen people. Anyway, if you want to get one of their literally hundreds of items (or two, or three, or all of them) for less than usual, head over to their shop on DriveThruRPG now.
