Through the Breach

Very few game companies love their holidays like Wyrd Games does. Any time one comes around, you can bet that they'll have something special going on. This time around, it's Valentine's Day and they've got a new Scheme for Malifaux as well as an Augment for Through the Breach. Add a bit of love to your games today.

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.

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.

There's a pair of new Through the Breach books available for those who want to head into the world of Malifaux. The first is Above the Law, which is a full detailed account of the Guild of Mercantilers. Then there's a new Penny Dreadful adventure called Northern Sedition, a part of the Northern Aggression adventure path.

Soon I discovered that this whole "rock" thing was true. Jerry Lee Lewis was the devil. Jesus was an architect, previous to his career as a prophet. All of a sudden, I found myself in love with the world, so the only thing I could do was ding-a-ding-dang my dang-along ling-long. *engine revs*

The Badlands Invitational is a race through the badlands in Malifaux. And it's into this race that you'll go in a new Penny Dreadful adventure for Through the Breach from Wyrd. A Guild Contract is on the line for the winner. Make sure your chosen racer gets across that line first.

Ok, so it's actually the first day of June, but Wyrd had this up yesterday afternoon, so it was still May when it hit. Squeaking in just over the line, though. But better late than never, as this issue is filled with all sorts of information about Malifaux releases, Darkness Comes Rattling expansions, and The Other Side stuff, plus more.
It's a dude's face in a flaming wheel.
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it. It's just, what did that initial art request look like? I'd kinda like to see that.
Anyway, Wyrd finishes up their look at the Undying encounter box with a look at the Wanyudo.
"You made the Earth move under my feet." It's something you say to someone else for really getting you or doing something great. For the Grave Golem, it could just be that part of the soil has come alive and looking to drag you down. I guess that does make digging graves easier. The Grave Golem is today's Wyrd Preview.
Mondays aren't always the most-beloved day. But Wyrd does their best to make them a bit better with their regular previews. In this case, they're tying up loose ends with the second half of their Undying Encounter Box. Have yourselves a look.
Since both Malifaux and Through the Breach take place in the same universe, Wyrd is able to create products that give content for both at the same time. In this case, it's their Story Encounter and Adventure Box. It's got story and adventure for the RPG, while also some cool, new models for the minis game. It's also their Monday Preview.
Humans love shiny rocks. Gold. Silver. Diamonds. Any sort of gemstone. They were all just shiny rocks that people decided were worth something. Soulstones, however, have more than just "shiny rock" value. They also hold great power. And few are able to appraise and evaluate these rocks more than the Soulstone Aficionado. Check out this pursuit for Through the Breach in Wyrd's Monday Preveiw.
You know, with Wyrd posting up a regular preview on Mondays, it's not such a bad day after all. It could certainly be worse, is what I'm saying. This time around, it's another look at Above the Law for Through the Breach. Check out the Witchling Handler.
It could be said that all advertising is some form of propaganda. And, really, all the stories on here are a form of advertising. So, it could be argued, that I'm in the propaganda business. Though I'm not really sure I like the ring of that. But waddyagonnado? You're gonna read about the Propagandist pursuit coming from the Above the Law expansion for Through the Breach.
You know, if you're going to have a gun, you might as well know how to use it properly. And not just little guns, either. But big ones. Really big ones. Really, really big ones. Such is the case with the Gunner pursuit from Through the Breach: Above the Law. We get a look at how they'll work in today's Monday Wyrd Preview.
Bureaucracy makes the world go 'round. It might not initially seem like the most thrilling class to take in a game, the one that has connections and is good at negotiations, but all of those are very useful skills to have. In Wyrd's Monday Preview, they're showing off the Bureaucrat specialization for Through the Breach. Go have a look-see.
Mondays are generally considered pretty rough. You're ripped from the weekend and tossed back into the work week as far from another weekend as possible. But Wyrd does their best to soften the blow with their regular previews. They've decided to give us another look at the upcoming Above the Law book. This time around, it's a preview of the Magewright.
Wyrd loves to make Mondays just a little better by having regular previews that day. Well, as today's Monday, that means a preview. This time around, it's a look at the Marksman pursuit for Through the Breach. Marksman Pursuit... sounds like a new spy thriller movie coming out next summer.
Wyrd keeps a nice, steady schedule for their previews. I can certainly appreciate that. I'm a big fan of routine. So, as it's Monday, that means some new art to look at. In this case, it's from the Through the Breach book, Above the Law. Check out the Commander.
Pre-made adventures are a great way to have a quick plan for your gaming night. Wyrd is great about coming out with Penny Dreadful one-shot adventures for their Through the Breach RPG. They've got a new one that you can buy to give your group a new challenge.
December has but a week left. Many people are going on vacation for the holidays. Christmas is in a couple days. Hanukah starts tomorrow. It's time to wrap things up for the year for many people. Well, that includes the folks over at Wyrd Games who have posted up this month's Newsletter, letting you know about all the things they've got going on still.
Christmas comes early for those of you that like Wyrd's Through The Breach RPG as well as just keeping abreast of what's going on with the company. They've got two new Through The Breach Penny Dreadful adventures as well as the latest issue of Wyrd Chronicles available for download.
Now when I was just a little boy, standin' to my Daddy's knee
My Poppa said, "son don't let the man get you and do what he done to me."
Ok, my dad never actually said that. But I can't read "Into the Bayou" without thinking of some CCR.
Well, whether you go running through the jungle when playing Through the Breach, or just sit on your back porch, you can get your copy of the pdf version of Into the Bayou now.
October is pretty much the perfect month for Wyrd. Malifaux certainly has a Halloween-esque vibe running through it. The company knows it and so has plenty of stuff going on. They've posted up their October newsletter so you can catch a look at what all is happening.
Temperatures are starting to chill outside. Here in Atlanta, that means it's only getting up into the low 80s in the afternoon. Of course, people here are thus saying, "it's freezing" outside. Waddyagonnado? Well, maybe you'll get a cup of hot cocoa, wrap up in a big, fluffy blanket, and read the October issue of Wyrd Chronicles, which is now available.
A parent can think of little worse than the loss of a child. One such rather wealthy couple has had their daughter stolen away from them. They've put out a call to anyone who might be able to track down and find out what happened, and hopefully bring the daughter back safe and sound. Unfortunately, this is the world of Malifaux and nothing is ever that easy.
