Digital Versions of The Haunting of Equestria and Movie Sourcebook Now Available

While I'm a "book in my hands" kinda gamer, I certainly also like having digital versions around so I can check things in the rulebook whenever I need. So, while I've got the physical versions of both the Official Movie Sourcebook and Haunting of Equestria for the Tails of Equestria RPG, I'll probably pick up the digital versions, too, which are available now.

The folks behind Fellowship are looking to expand. But it's more than just expanding, they're going back to the roots and doing a bit of tweaking as well. There's a Kickstarter campaign up for a new Fellowship core book with updated rules, but you can also pick up Inverse Fellowship and A Fellowship in Rebellion, books 2 and 3 of the series.

Call to Adventure Background Compendium Up On Kickstarter

It's rarely that a hero is born a day before they head out to adventure. They did something for a while before the call to roam the land and fight its evils took hold. But what, exactly, did they do? What sort of skills did they learn along the way? That's what the Backgrounds are for in Dungeons & Dragons. But even with the couple books that have expanded backgrounds, a player might not really find one that works for the character they're trying to create. That's where the Call to Adventure book comes in. It's up on Kickstarter now and it is simply filled with new bakgrounds.

Forbidden Lands: The Spire of Quetzel Now Available

Free League Publishing has released a new book for the Forbidden Lands RPG. It's called the Spire of Quetzel and it includes four different adventuring sites for players to visit. They can head to the titular Spire, or perhaps meander their way through the Bright Vault. Maybe they'd prefer to traverse Hexenwald. Finally, they might seek some peace in the Graveyard of Thunder. You can pick up your copy of this book now.

Gordon's Bluff RPG Adventure Up On Kickstarter

You can never trust when Gordon says anything. That guy stretches the truth, lies, and when gaming, is just bluffing all the time. As such, you- *gets handed a note*

Oh, apparently, this is referring to a feature "rising steeply with a broad flat or rounded front" such as cliffs at the seaside. Well, alright then. Gordon's Bluff is a new RPG adventure for 5th Edition and Pathfinder that takes you out to the seaside. The adventure is up on Kickstarter now.

Curse of the Desert Outpost RPG Adventure up on Kickstarter

There's treasure out in them-thar dunes. But getting it isn't going to be easy. I mean, if it were easy, there wouldn't still be that treasure out there. You're gonna have to go and get it, and there's no guarantee you'll make it back. That's the basic set up behind Curse of the Desert Outpost, a new adventure compatible with 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now.

Conan wore many hats during his adventures. Conan the Barbarian. Conan the King. Conan the Conquerer. Conan the Steak-n-Shake Line Cook. In this instance, we're talking about Conan the Brigand.

Hunters Entertainment to Create Altered Carbon RPG

I remember when the Altered Carbon show came out on Netflix. It seemed to get rather universal praise from my friends. So, I know they're thrilled with the announcement that they'll soon be able to dive headlong into that universe, as Hunters Entertainment has announced a licensing agreement with Skydance Media to create the Altered Carbon RPG.

When you're the GM, you've gotta come up with everything else in the world that doesn't consist of the party memebers. That's tough. There's guides out there that can help you with NPCs in the world. But they give you, what? 20? 30? Maybe 100 characters? That's nothing. The Ultimate Character Compendium gives you over 4 thousand. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

And you may find yourself living in a shotgun hovel. And you may find yourself in another part of the realms. And you may find yourself weilding a large axe. And you may find yourself in a run-down bar, with a run-down barkeep. And you may ask yourself, "Well, how did I get here?"

Infinite Power RPG 2nd Edition Up On Kickstarter

No matter how much playtesting you do before a game goes out, having a couple thousand copies of your games hit players hands will find more things than you'd ever want to tweak and fix on your own. So, while the original Infinite Power worked fine, the designers saw some places for improvement. They've made those changes and are now ready to reveal them with Infinite Power 2nd Edition. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Dangerous Times RPG Zine Up On Kickstarter

While not a serious newsman, I do consider myself a bit of a reporter. So seeing an RPG about being a reporter for a major city newspaper set in an alternative 1920s New York where there's not only bureaucrats, gangsters, and flappers, but also demons, devils, and magic, it piques my interest. Dangerous Times is just that, and they're up on Kickstarter now.

The Keep Studios Running Dungeon Crawl Classics: Soul for the Ocean Dark

There's a lot of interesting world-concepts out there, and I think this goes along with them. Players in Soul for the Ocean Dark will be placed in a world where there is no sun or moon, but just a massive lighthouse that provides light for the realm. One day, the light goes out. I'm guessing that the adventure involves more than going to Home Depot and getting a replacement bulb. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Night Life RPG Up On Kickstarter

In Night Life, magic isn't given by some deity, or through study, or people who were just born with it (and it's not Maybelene, either). It's surviving a near-death experience. As such, it means there's a lot of people out there with magic who aren't the most stable pillars of society. It's into this world that you go in the game. It's also the 80s, because neon and spandex are cool. The game is up on Kickstarter now.

Waypoint Game Designs Running Manfiest RPG Kickstarter

So, just me being me, when I see Sci-Western, I can only think of one thing: Trigun. Now, Manifest, the sci-western RPG that's up on Kickstarter now from Waypoint Game Designs doesn't say it's like Trigun or is trying to be Trigun or that this is supposed to be a Trigun-esque RPG. But, for me, I'm just seeing playing a lanky dude in a red coat, bonde hair, and a love of donuts. The campaign for Manifest is up on Kickstarter now.

Starfinder Critical Fumble Deck Available From Paizo

Rolling a 1 in a game is bad. You missed your attack, which could've been absolutely vital. But what if it was even worse than that? Paizo has their Starfinder Critical Fumble Deck where players can draw a card from the deck and see what sort of horrible things also happened to them when they slipped on that banana peel.
