Sci-fi


The Mercenaries sourcebook for the Infinity RPG is now available, at least as a pdf. Yes, since shipping right now is a little sketchy, sending you an actual book isn't the easiest. However, downloads are only affected by virtual viruses, so you can still pick it up relatively safely. You can head over to Modiphius' webshop now and get it for yourself.

Monsterpocalypse <whoop! whoop! whoop!>, yes, it always sets off the Giant Robot Alert. Players control their kaiju of choice and fight against their enemy. But in an upcoming twist, players will instead be teaming up to take out a monster controlled by the game itself. That's what we get a look at in this article for Monsterpocalypse: Megaton Mashup. <whoop! whoop! whoop!>

In order to show off some more of the new character options that are in the Near Space book for Starfinder that's out, Paizo likes to put together a character that uses some of them. That way, instead of just getting a bit of a rule without much context, you can see how it fits into an actually-build character. In this case, we get a look at Daytenna Flass, a new NPC also from the book.

A new edition of the Fading Suns RPG is up on Kickstarter now. They've got a Universe Book, Character Book, and Gamemaster Book as their core books available. Adding to that, there's a Faction Book, GM screen, Tokens, and more that you can pick up so you've got everything you need to get playing and then some.

Many of us are stuck at home right now. So, at-best, we can play our RPGs with friends over virutal tabletops. Most games aren't designed for this. Gunship is. It's a new sci-fi RPG that's up on Kickstarter now. It's got a space-Western feel to it. So, saddle up your starship and head into the farthest reaches of space.

So, there proabably aren't many Star Wars: Legion tournaments going on right now. But that actually makes it a good time to update the tourney rules, as everyone will have a chance to study up before the next time they hit the table. Fantasy Flight has done just that. You can get these updated rules and regulations now. And even if you don't play in tourneys, there's something for you in there.

Professional wrestling. It's a hoot. It's all the high-fling action of Cirque De Soliel with the drama and pathos of Telenovellas. And this Wednesday, it's coming to Starfinder. Paizo will be running a game and introducing X.T.R.E.M. wrestling to the game.

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.

Operation Kaldstrom is the upcoming starter set for Infinity that not only is good place for new players, it introduces Infinity CodeOne, a whole new, stripped-down way to play the game. In this preview, we get a little more detail about what will be coming in the box, with looks at the minis, the terrain, and more. Have yourselves a peek.

It's Friday again. Now that I think about it... the week kinda went by fast... At least for me. I'm sitting here thinking, "wasn't it Tuesday just a day or so ago?" Apparently not. Oh well. I'm ok with this. Hopefully your week has been alright and you've been able to stay safe out there. These are strange times, indeed. As for me, I'm here to bring you your regularly-scheduled party platter of bite-sized gaming stories.

Today we have: New 2D Print Models Available From One Page Rules, Bushi Prime Strikers Available From Puppets War, Norse Foundry Running Dice of Crits Kickstarter, and Mystic Mariner and Mystic Noble Dice Available From Kraken Dice.

Are we only 1/4 of the way through the year? Sure. Does that make it a little early for a year-in-review post? Eh, the folks over at Privateer Press don't really think so. Let's face it, it's kinda felt like it's been a full year already. As such, they've got a bit of an update about how things have gone and a little about where they might lead.

As with most Starfinder releases, there's a little bit of something for everyone inside Near Space, their upcoming book. GMs will have guides for new planets and regions of space. Players will have new character options. It's some of these options that we get a look at here in this article as Paizo builds a new character sporting some of those spiffy, new options.

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, production and shipping has been delayed in all areas of the gaming community. While, most of the time, these delays are only negative, in this case, there's a small, silver lining around that cloud. Corvus Belli has extended their period to pre-order Operation Kladstrom, their upcoming starter set for Infinity. So, if you're wanting, you can have a couple extra weeks to get together funds for the pre-order.

Looking for a new system to try out while you're at home? Can't go out and drive anywhere but wish you could? Watched any Mad Max movies lately? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, you might want to check out Devil's Run. It's a post-apocalyptic RPG that's available now from Modiphius.

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.

Games Workshop might be temporarily closed down due to COVID-19, but that doesn't mean they're not still working. They're taking pre-orders for a new made-to-order figure, Lieutenant Amulius. If you're looking to add a new space marine to your collection, go get your name on the list now.

Sure, you're at home. But that doesn't mean you can't get some new stuff. One Page Rules is here to help alleviate your qurantine woes with new rules sets for both Age of Fantasy and Grimdark Future. As always, you can just head over to their website and download them now.

For the next couple Star Wars: Legion support units, Fantasy Flight is headed to prequel territory. They've announced that they're working on the Republic AT-RT unit as well as the STAP Riders for Separatists. Have yourselves a look at these two mechanical, fast-moving sets.

I AM THE LAW!

This is what you can shout at your opponents when you roll up in your fancy armor and helmet. Modiphius has released the Core Rulebook for the Judge Dredd RPG. They also have the first expansion, Robot Wars available. If you order the physical book, it'll be a bit before it ships. However, you'll get the pdf version right away so you can start making MegaCity One that much safer right away.

While stores and businesses might be temporarily closed, that doesn't mean there's not work going on. Behind the scenes, in living rooms all across the world, industry continues. In this case, it's some new Star Wars: Legion sets. Fantasy Flight has previewed two new Special Forces units that, after all this pandemic stuff finishes up, you'll be able to get for your collections.

Near Space for Starfinder gives players a detailed look at a fairly dense region of space where hundreds of different worlds lie. If you'd like to get an inside look at what's inside the book (it's in inside-ception!), you can check out this article. It gives you a chapter breakdown of what's coming in the book.

It's the roaring 20s. Err, the roaring 1920s, that is. Prohibition is on. Space travel is possible. People have super powers. It's just like you read in your history books recreated in Capers Offworld RPG, a new supplment for the CAPERS RPG that's up on Kickstarter 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?

Reach out. Reach out and touch someone. Well, not right now. We're supposed to socially isolate. You know who's good at that? The NRC Ranger for Fallout: Wasteland Warfare. You can pick up this new sniper for your forces now over in the Modiphius webshop.
