Role Playing Games


A Time for Sacrifice is a new set of adventures coming out for Call of Cthulhu 7th edition that's up on Kickstarter now. New Comet Games is looking to create adventures that are 50% bigger than the average adventure set for the game. They've got everything just about ready to go, but things need those final touches, and that's what they're looking to fund via their campaign.

A new adventure for Mutant: Year Zero is now available from Free League Publishing. The world is in peril again, and it's up to the players to fix it. This book ties the previous adventures, Genlab Alpha, Mechatron, and Elysium together. This isn't going to be easy. If you're wanting a spine-tingling, pulse-pounding adventure, this is the one for you.

I play Dungeons & Dragons every-other weekend. I was just looking over character spell options this morning for my Bard. I'm sure many of you are in regular games as well. If you are (or even if you just enjoy the game less frequently), Wizards of the Coast wants to hear from you. They've posted up their D&D Survey 2019 and would be thankful if you could check it out.

I'm human. You're human. We're all human. And each of us is different. However, when it comes to races in RPGs, they tend to boil down entire races and species into a single set of traits you put on your character. Well, Paizo knows that that's not the best and is giving players more racial options for the different core races from the Starfinder book in the upcoming Character Operations Manual. In this preview, we get a look at just what some of those options will look like.

Honestly, if there's one company in the gaming world that knows how to celebrate Halloween, it's Wyrd. The world of Malifaux is a perfect place where it's Halloween every day, and so they're definitely doing things for the season. Wyrd's posted up their October newsletter, giving you a look at all the special things they've got going on, as well as the new releases they're coming out with. Have yourselves a look.

Just because a new edition of a game comes out doesn't mean that everyone gives up the older edition. There are many out there that still play and enjoy them. Take Pathfinder, for example. If you've got a group that's been playing for a while, you might want to stick with the 1st edition. Or, you might just not like what 2nd edition brought. Either way, it also doesn't mean that nothing new will come out for the game. Take, for example, Ascension Games' Path of the Wilds book that's up on Kickstarter now.

Against the Darkmaster is a new fantasy RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. The game doesn't fit into any specific fantasy setting, but more goes for the epic fantasy of Sagas. If you like grand adventures with characters overcoming great odds to beat a nefarious evil that's threatening all of existence, then this is the RPG for you.

Medieval, Tales from Europe is a new setting book for Dungeons & Dragons that's coming to Kickstarter in December. The idea is to take the game and put it in something that's relatively historically accurate. It's not 100% realistic, but it is extremely low-magic and there's only 1 race: Humans. But there's still adventure elements, as it takes a bit more fairy-tale look at things. So, your whole game won't just be, "wake up, farm, hope you don't die of starvation or disease, go to bed."

I mainly play Bards in D&D. As such, I'm primarily a spellcaster. I'm constantly on the lookout for new spells that I can possibly add to my repertoire. The ones in the PHB are nice... but it'd be nice to have more options. Thankfully, that's exactly what you get with Deep Magic, a new 5th edition magic supplement that's up on Kickstarter now from Kobold Press.

The galaxy is filled with all manner of planets comprising all sorts of environments and all sorts of dangers and challenges. And your job is to go visit them. At least, that's what you do in Star Fleet, and will be doing in Star Trek Adventures: Strange New Worlds, the new supplement that's available now from Modiphius.

The next wave of Wardling figures is now available from WizKids. This time around, it's the evil foes that the Wardlings must go out and defeat. There's new Orcs of different forms, as well as a dragon, a gryphon, and more. Head out and see what you'll be facing now.

One-shot adventures are great to insert into your overall RPG campaign to add some zest or spice to the game. Or, you can just get a group of friends together and throw a game night and not worry about a bigger campaign. Either way, they're very handy for GMs to have on hand. And for those playing Through the Breach, a new Penny Dreadful One-Shot is ready for you. It's called Bubbling Up From Below, and you can get a look at it in this preview from Wyrd.

The Pathfinder Society is Paizo's regular RPG club. And, since it's all about Pathfinder, it includes adventures, of course. In this preview, we get a look at what they've been working on along those lines. And there's a cute fox flute player. So, it's got that going for it.

Players only have to worry about their character while the GM has to worry about literally every one else in the game. As such, it's handy to have guides and lists of NPCs that they can draw from. But it can get old with just Bartender #483 or Commoner #87309. Sometimes, you need something a little more complex. That's what Paizo's giving you in this preview of the Lost Omens Character Guide.

Sure, when you're playing an RPG, the focus is just on the PCs, but what about all the other things going on in the kingdoms/realms? How do those work? And what happens if someone does become ruler of the land? That's where a supplement like Kingdoms & Warfare comes in. It's a new guide for 5th Edition that's up on Kickstarter now. Find out about running a kingdom and even fighting wars to expand your territory.

Paizo's filling up your trick or treat bags early this month. You can head over to your LGS and get yourself new releases for Pathfinder, Pathfinder Battles, and Starfinder now. Need some new terrain? They've got it. New character options for your Pathfinder character? You bet. New Starfinder adventure? Sure, why not? Some new minis to represent your fiends and foes? Check.

It's a Star Wars fest over at Fantasy Flight. The new Clone Wars box set for Star Wars: Legion is now available, ushering in a new era to the tabletop miniatures game. The starter and two ancillary sets are available. Also for Legion is the new Upgrade Cards pack, along with several battle mats. That's not enough? There's a new Outer Rim game mat as well, plus a new card pack for the Star Wars RPG. I told you there was a lot.

The players only have to worry about one (or maybe a few) characters. Meanwhile, the GM has to worry about literally every other person in all of existence in the world they're playing in (plus all the planes). That can be quite a task. Thankfully, there's things like the Castles & Crusades NPC Almanac here to help them out. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

There is but a small veil that separates the world we think we know from a much more sinister and evil world out there. In Voidheart Symphony, you don't just pull away that veil, but tear it down as you work against the supernatural forces at work against you. Powered by the Apocalypse System, the new RPG is up on Kickstarter now.

Seeing as it's October, it seems a pretty good time to go out for a good scare. And sometimes, you want to bring that to your gaming sessions. At least, you certainly can if you're playing All is Madness: Paranormal, a new horror RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. Can you face your fears?

The Homeworld video game, that follows the beleagured Kushan people as they flee after the destruction of their homeworld by the Taiidan Empire, is getting itself a tabletop RPG based on the series. Modiphius has announced that they're creating Homeworld: Revelations. Take on the role of a member of the Kushan fleet and work on reestablishing the group on a new world of their own.

Puzzles. And I don't just mean jigsaw puzzles that you take forever to finish on your kitchen table. I mean all manner of puzzles. In an RPG, they can be a chance for the players to step back out of their characters for a bit and give their brains a real stretch. In this article, Paizo talks about the Puzzle Hunts they had at PaizoCon, posting up the rules for them. Have yourselve a look.

Free League Publishing has announced that The Gray Death, a new campaign module for the Mutant: Year Zero RPG, will be coming out October 29th. If you've been looking for a supplement that brings together all the various expansions for the game, this is the book you've been waiting for.

"Yeah, but is it what my character would do?"

We've all probably heard that at a gaming table before. Players are given an option or an course of action, and it all sorts of stops because someone isn't sure if their character would do it or not. That's fine, but it can sometimes be a question players have about their characters. In this preview of the Lost Omens Character Guide for Pathfinder, Paizo takes a look at helping with such questions.
