PRESS RELEASE – One Page Adventure For DnD!

I have just launched a Patreon for my One Page Adventures (which you may have seen posted on EN World [The Business of Emotion, or Croaking Sirocco], Twitter, or elsewhere). I will be creating one or two one-page adventures for DnD each month. These are adventures designed for one session of play, each being a standalone adventure with its own theme. Each adventure is contained on a single side of one A4/letter-size sheet of paper, and is available for download in PDF format. These will be available for free, but I really appreciate your contributions, as each takes many hours to put together, and so patrons will get them earlier.


ABOUT ME

My name is Morrus, and I run the RPG news website EN World. I also have a weekly podcast called Morrus’ Unofficial Tabletop RPG Talk, and I am the co-founder of the ENnies. I also do loads of other stuff! 

WHAT DO I GET?

You’ll get one, sometimes two, one-page adventures per month. I will be releasing these for free online in PDF format.

One-page adventures are short and to the point. As an exercise in writing economy, they are distilled down to the very basics. Monsters and NPCs always use standard stat blocks references in bold (the usual 5E style), and area descriptions are kept to the bare minimum. For example, Two-Lips’ farm in the first adventure, The Business of Emotion, is described thusly: “Flower fields and a small farmhouse. TWO-LIPS, a gnome noble, directs a crew of six gnome commoners.”

HOW MUCH IS IT?

That’s up to you! Patreon is a “pay-what-you-want” subscription model. YOU decide what these are worth to you. I have suggested a couple of amounts – $1 and $5 – which should suit a range of budgets. But it’s your decision. What’s a one-page adventure worth? I would say, though, that a cup of coffee costs between $3 and $6 depending where you are in the world, and each of these takes me many hours to make!

And don’t forget, if you change your mind, you can cancel at any time. There’s no obligation!

WHO MAKES THESE?

Some of these adventures are converted from longer adventures I have commissioned from other writers elsewhere (you can see the original creator of each at the bottom of the adventure), while others I will write myself. The layout is my own work, as is the conversion and distillation.

CAN I SEE AN EXAMPLE? 

Of course you can! Just scroll down and you’ll see links to the first two One Page Adventure. You can grab it for free, but I would really appreciate your support! If you like these, please do become a patron. You can pay what you want – every bit helps. 

Examples on EN World: The Business of Emotion, or Croaking Sirocco.

Over on the Patreon there are already two adventures posted! Go grab ’em! And if you like them, please consider becoming a patron!

Kickstarter for MUTANT YEAR ZERO: ELYSIUM RPG – Three Days to Go Before Humanity Falls

When nations and authorities collapse, only the most basic human bond remains – family. While the world burns, the powerful dynasties build an enclave deep in the bedrock named Elysium I. But as time goes by, the Houses turn on each other and enclave workers begin to question their masters…

It is end of the world as you know it – prepare for an experience where Judge Dredd meets Game of Thrones deep underground in MUTANT YEAR ZERO: ELYSIUM. When Powerful Houses struggle for supremacy and workers long for an equal and open world, what side will you find yourself on?

On January 15th, 2019 Bloat Games will launch their 5th RPG Kickstarter for SURVIVE THIS!! Dark Places & Demogorgons: The Cryptid Manual. This will be the 3rd Kickstarter from the SURVIVE THIS!! line, created by Bloat Games founder, Eric Bloat, in 2015 and the 2nd in the Dark Places & Demogorgons series (Created by Eric Bloat and Josh Palmer). All of Bloat Games previous Kickstarters have funded, including their most recent Kickstarter, SURVIVE THIS!! Vigilante City, which funded at nearly $13,000.

Bloat Games will be using Drivethrurpg for both digital and physical fulfillment.

The Cryptid Manual is Bloat Games first exclusively Bestiary/Monster Manual type of product.

If you’ve ever wanted to run your players against a Big Foot, a Lake Monster, The Mothman or Jersey Devil, then this supplement will be a must have.

And now the safe days are over. Food is running scarce, and the fight for what’s left is turning violent. It’s time to venture out and explore the Zone. You have no choice. This is the beginning. This is Mutant: Year Zero.

Tales from the Loop art book

FOR THE 80’S FANATICS: TALES FROM THE LOOP – ART BOOK

“Incredible paintings of sci-fi suburbia will make you wish you were Swedish” – THE VERGE

“If you’ve got a geek in your family who needs a Christmas present, this should be it. They’ll love you forever.”– NPR BOOKS

“The hangover of an abandoned government science programme. Dinosaurs show up too in this quiet war of multiple worlds.” – The Guardian

In 1954, the Swedish government ordered the construction of the world’s largest particle accelerator. The facility was complete in 1969, located deep below the pastoral countryside of Mälaröarna. The local population called this marvel of technology The Loop. These are its strange tales.
Simon Stålenhag’s paintings of Swedish 1980s suburbia, populated by fantastic machines and strange beasts, have spread like wildfire on the Internet. Stålenhag’s portrayal of a childhood against a backdrop of old Volvo cars and coveralls, combined with strange and mystical machines, creates a unique atmosphere that is both instantly recognizable and utterly alien. In the artbook Tales from the Loop, Simon Stålenhag’s paintings are collected in book form—together with texts that tell the stories of the youth who lived in the shadows of the machines.

Things from the Flood art book

FOR THE 90’S FREAKS: THINGS FROM THE FLOOD – ART BOOK

“Things From The Flood Is Gorgeously Creepy And Strangely Human” – NPR BOOKS

The Loop is now closed. Your life is returning to normal when the pastoral countryside is suddenly flooded by dark water from the huge abandoned underground facility. Rumors are spreading in your classrooms and in the schoolyard, stories about the flood and how it has brought something with it. One thing is clear: the past is not ready to be forgotten. In Simon Stålenhags artbook Things from the Flood, the stories of Tales from the Loop continue, memories of a childhood infused with strange machines and weird creatures from other dimensions. In Things from the Flood, Stålenhag moves his focus the ’90s. These are tales of the trials of youth, of schoolyard hazings, of first kisses, of finding yourself – and robots.

Then tell us what you and your friends thought of the experience. Paizo needs your feedback to make the classes in the Character Operations Manual the best they can be,” said Starfinder Creative Director Robert G. McCreary.

This playtest focuses on three new classes for the upcoming Starfinder Character Operations Manual, a sourcebook full of new character options that is scheduled to release in late 2019. First up is the biohacker, a brilliant super-scientist who analyzes their enemies and creates injections that can help allies or hinder foes. Biohackers specialize in scientific fields of study and utilize a scientific method that is either studious and methodical, or instinctive and improvisational—the hallmarks of any good mad scientist! Next is the vanguard, a martial character who excels in melee fighting and channels the entropic forces of the universe to manipulate their surroundings, bolster themselves and their allies, and power their devastating unarmed strikes. Finally, Paizo presents the witchwarper. This Charisma-based spellcaster pulls from alternate realities to power their magic and alters the environment and even nearby creatures to the witchwarper’s advantage. This playtest is a chance to get a look at early versions of these classes and have a hand in their development before they hit shelves next year!

The playtest will run until January 16, 2019. Feedback surveys on StarfinderPlaytest.com will be open throughout the playtest.

There are plenty of ways to participate in the playtest. Starfinder Society organized play will also open up the playtest classes via the use of custom created characters that operate much like pregenerated characters during the playtest.

Players can engage with other players and designers on the Character Operations Manual Playtest forums, discussing the new classes and possibilities for the future. While Paizo wants to focus on actual play feedback, they are interested in hearing all ideas about the classes.

Players can also join Paizo on their Twitch channel at twitch.tv/officialpaizoThey host a live Starfinder stream every Wednesday at 4:00 p.m. PST, where they talk about all things Starfinder—including the Character Operations Manual Playtest! Videos from that stream are archived on Paizo’s YouTube channel at youtube.com/PaizoInc.

PRESS RELEASE – Fan Buzz Builds as The Fantasy Network SVOD Launches Founders announced early access at Gen Con Indy 2018

Fantasy Network

Fan Buzz Builds as The Fantasy Network SVOD Launches
Founders announced early access at Gen Con Indy 2018.

Seattle, WA. (December 2018)— The Fantasy Network, a joint venture of Arrowstorm Entertainment (The CW’s The Outpost), The Forge Studios (The Rangers), and Zombie Orpheus Entertainment (JourneyQuest) invited their audiences to early access at Gen Con Indy 2018. It is now available to the public.

The Fantasy Network is a freemium SVOD service with a mission to make creator-owned content accessible, shareable, and discoverable across the web, rather than locked behind a paywall. Subscribers receive first access to new releases and to a host of unique features, including the ability to contribute to wikis for each show and to help greenlight new seasons of their favorite shows for production.

The Network is positioned as a global hub for independent fantasy films and series, including syndicated, new, and original content. Each partner has contributed their own libraries of content to the network, including the Mythica series, The Rangers series, and The Gamers. They have licensed award-winning fantasy content from dozens of other independent creators, notably fan favorites Ren: The Girl with the Mark, AFK, and One Hit Die. They also feature a special channel dedicated to original digital programming from Gen Con LLC, the biggest gaming convention in the United States.

“Think of us as your first destination for original Fantasy Content”, says Ron Newcomb, owner of The Forge Studios. The network offers a premium subscription membership, as well as a significant library of free content. As a fan-supported and creator-distributed endeavor, the network not only directs support from subscriptions to the production of new content, but actively runs crowdfunding campaigns for the network’s content providers to empower fans to keep the stories that they love alive. They most recently worked, in parallel with Telus, to renew Canadian comedy One Hit Die for a third season.

But, what else makes them different? They invite content creators and fans to create their own commercial spin-offs in many of the worlds they have brought to life, via their opt-in Shared Cinematic Universe License Agreement (http://scu.la). Third-party films and series created under this license, beginning with the Strowlers Shared Cinematic Universe, will be eligible for distribution and revenue share on the network. Inspired by the Open Gaming License and the Creative Commons phenomenon, the SCULA is a filmmaker-friendly copyright alternative that empowers interconnected global storytelling and cultural exchange.

“Stories want to be free. By enabling storytellers to remix and reimagine the intellectual properties participating in the SCULA, we keep stories alive and relevant, rather than creating copyright orphans. This active and collaborative dialogue empowers fans and creators to set their imaginations free,” says Ben Dobyns of Zombie Orpheus Entertainment and CEO.

The trio of established production companies have each found success in the indie film world and are looking to bring their experience and skills together under one roof for the benefit of all. “We waited around long enough for someone else to do this, it’s now our time,” says Jason Faller of Arrowstorm Entertainment.

The network has launched with the proven streaming platform established by Zombie Orpheus and is now available on many IPTV apps. No matter the device or browser, they want you to have easy access. The Fantasy Network is currently available on iOS, Android, Apple TV, Chrome TV, Roku, and Amazon Fire.

As in many fantasy stories, this is about a journey against the odds. But as fantasy teaches us, we’re stronger together. The Fantasy Network looks forward to inviting more producers, subscribers, and contributors into their active community.

The Fantasy Network, LLC, is a privately-owned, Seattle-based independent film company. It looks to be a one-stop shop for all things fantasy. For more on the network, go to www.TheFantasy.Network.

Epic campaign for Mutant: Year Zero revealed in the Elysium Kickstarter – The Grey Death

Free League Publishing – Nov 28, 2018 14:30 GMT

A new power is rising in the Zone. A disciplined fighting force, calling itself the Army of the Dawn, has recently seized land and established outposts in the Zone. Who controls the Army of the Dawn and what are they truly after?

MUTANT: THE GREY DEATH is an epic campaign for the award-winning tabletop RPG Mutant: Year Zero where mutants, animals, robots and humans must set their differences aside and work together to face a threat that could change the Dawnworld forever.

The adventure has been added as a brand-new stretch goal that is part of the current Mutant: ElysiumKickstarter by Free League Publishing.

The Grey Death adds an over-arching metaplot for Mutant: Year Zero and the stand-alone expansions Genlab Alpha, Mechatron and Elysium and brings them into a larger narrative. The adventure is written by Michael Petersén, one of the original game writers of the first Mutant RPG and is an homage to a classic campaign published in the 1980s.

If the stretch goal is reached, backers of Mutant: Elysium will get The Grey Death as well, in PDF or as a printed hardback book.

PRESS RELEASE – Kickstarter launched for MUTANT: ELYSIUM RPG – The Final Fall of Humanity

Free League Publishing

​Kickstarter launched for MUTANT: ELYSIUM RPG – The Final Fall of Humanity

Free League Publishing – Nov 20, 2018 13:10 GMT

When humanity falls, when nations and authorities collapse, only the most basic human bond remains – family. While the world burns, the powerful dynasties form a covenant called Elysium. Deep down in the bedrock, they build the enclave named Elysium I, designed to weather the long atomic winter. Decades later, Elysium I is a gilded prison, a lonely outpost in a sea of quiet destruction where fear and suspicion grow unchecked…

Prepare for the end of the world as you know it. Today marks the launch of the kickstarter of MUTANT: ELYSIUM. It is the third and final major expansion set in the universe of the award-winning postapocalyptic tabletop roleplaying game MUTANT: YEAR ZERO RPG created by Free League Publishing.

MUTANT: ELYSIUM is fully playable as a standalone game and tells the origin story of the enclave humans, the last torchbearers of human civilization. In the huge underground enclave Elysium I, powerful Houses struggle for supremacy, oblivious to the looming threat that could bring humanity’s last bastion on Earth to its final downfall.

Get ready for the final fall of humanity!

ABOUT MUTANT: ELYSIUM

MUTANT: ELYSIUM, with art by acclaimed artists Simon Stålenhag and Reine Rosenberg and created by Free League, completes the Mutant: Year Zero quadrilogy of roleplaying games telling the full story of the postapocalyptic MUTANT universe. The stand-alone expansion, which also introduces non-mutant humans as a playable class in Mutant: Year Zero, includes:

  • ENCLAVE HUMANS – New rules for creating and playing enclave humans, including their web of contacts with rich and powerful allies.!
  • ELYSIUM I – A detailed description of Elysium I, the mother of all Elysium enclaves, including a full-color map.
  • GUARDIANS OF THE FALL – The complete campaign Guardians of the Fall, that will settle the final fate of the enclave.
  • ADAPTING TO LIFE IN THE ZONE – An overview of how the enclave humans can adapt to life in the Zone, and join the mutants, animals and robots of Mutant: Year Zero, Mutant: Genlab Alpha andMutant: Mechatron!

ABOUT MUTANT: ELYSIUM – THE STORY

In Elysium I, the Houses turn on each other and enclave workers begin to question their masters. After a violent confrontation, the ruling Houses create a force of judicators, with the authority to strike hard against anything that threatens order in the enclave.

You are one of these judicators. It is your duty to investigate crimes and impose the appropriate sentences. But never forget that your strongest loyalty is towards your family. You are the true heir of doom. When humanity sets foot on the surface again, it will be your House that leads the way into the new dawn. Your lineage. Your family.


ABOUT MUTANT: YEAR ZERO – ROLEPLAYING AT THE END OF DAYS

Mutant: Year Zero is the latest version of the classic Swedish tabletop roleplaying game Mutant, first published in 1984. The postapocalyptic game Mutant: Year Zero was named Best RPG at UK Games Expo 2015 and awarded a Silver ENnie for Best Rules at Gencon 2015.

PRESS RELEASE – R&R GOES AWRY IN THE NEW STARFINDER  SIGNAL OF SCREAMS ADVENTURE PATH

R&R GOES AWRY IN THE NEW STARFINDER 
SIGNAL OF SCREAMS ADVENTURE PATH

Explore science fantasy horror in “The Diaspora Strain.”
  

REDMOND, WASHINGTON (November 14, 2018): Today Paizo Inc. released The Diaspora Strain, the first volume in the Signal of Screams Adventure Path for the award-winning Starfinder Roleplaying Game. The 64-page volume, whose adventure was written by Chris S. Sims, is the first of three volumes in a horror-themed campaign to overcome a creeping madness. It is available for purchase at paizo.com and retailers worldwide at an MSRP of $22.99 for hardcover and $15.99 for PDF.

“Horror relies on turning the normal into the threatening. The expected becomes terrifyingly other. This adventure takes that idea and runs with it, tapping into the id of the Starfinder galaxy while paying homage to other great horror stories, such as Alien,OculusPoltergeistThe Shining, and more. Heroes in this adventure will find their senses turned against them. They won’t know what’s real. And that means their reactions to what they sense will also be untrustworthy. They won’t be able to solve a lot of their problems by shooting first, turning even the action-hero norm of Starfinder on its head. Horror also isn’t about winning. Therefore, my hope is that players not only enjoy this disturbing journey, but also reach the conclusion with a sense of relief, grateful to have survived,” said Paizo Developer Chris S. Sims.

The Diaspora Strain also includes a new corruption system by Jason Keeley and advice for running horror campaigns in the Starfinder RPG by Epidiah Ravachol, author of the incredibly popular indie RPG Dread.

Signal of Screams Adventure Path 

Elysium is a lie. While relaxing on a posh asteroid resort, the heroes are beset by a plague of madness and horrible transformations. After dealing with its unfortunate victims, they learn these tragedies are part of a plot engineered by an insane scientist trapped on the Shadow Plane. This scientist has used funding from an amoral corporation to craft a mysterious signal that will spread pain from world to world. As this corruption begins to infect the heroes, they must stop the transmission at its source to save themselves—and the rest of the galaxy!

 

The Diaspora Strain begins the Signal of Screams Adventure Path and includes:

  • “The Diaspora Strain,” a Starfinder adventure for 7th-level characters, by Chris S. Sims.
  • Corruptions that grant powerful abilities while eating away at a character’s soul, by Jason Keeley.
  • Advice for running horror campaigns in Starfinder, as well as horror-themed feats, spells, and a new theme, by Epidiah Ravachol.
  • An archive of alien terrors, including an ooze from the far depths of space and a fearsome acid-spitting arthropod, by Stephen Glicker, Chris S. Sims, and James L. Sutter.
  • Statistics and deck plans for a sleek security vessel, by Chris S. Sims, plus a glimpse at a beautiful but haunted planet, by Owen K.C. Stephens.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

On Kickstarter Now: Six Expansions for Hero Realms

November 13, 2018 – Framingham, MA – A Kickstarter which launched today offers tons of all-new content for Hero Realms, the popular fantasy deckbuilding adventure game.

The Hero Realms Journeys Kickstarter includes:

  • Journeys expansions. This series of 12-card expansions will bring players new champions, new actions, and two brand new types of cards: Quests and Relics. Fans can back the project for just $20 to get all four packs.  Back for $20
  • The Ancestry Pack lets fans play as a Dwarf, Elf, Ogre, Orc, smallfolk, or – as a Kickstarter-exclusive – a half-demon. Each race has a health modification, special rules, a racial skill or ability card, and two cards that modify the starting deck. Ancestry packs will work with generic starting decks, or combine with character packs. Fans who get this expansion could play as an Orc Wizard, an Elf Thief, or a Half-Demon Cleric (hey – why not?). For $30, backers can get the Ancestry Pack, Journeys, and all unlocked stretch goals.  Back for $30
  • The Lost Village transforms the Hero Realms base game into a coop adventure: Investigating the disappearance of the population of an entire village. The Lost Village follows Hero Realms: The Ruin of Thandar, and allows players to keep upgrading their characters between fights. For $45, backers can get The Lost Village, the Ancestry Pack, and Journeys.  Back for $45
  • The Everything Tier gets backers everything from both this Kickstarter and the first Hero Realms Kickstarter. It’s perfect for new players, because it catches up a collection in one click. It includes Hero Realms, the Character Packs, The Ruin of Thandar, and all six new expansions.  Back for $99

New players will find it easy to use the Journeys Kickstarter as an entry point to the game line. They can just back the project, and get the Everything Tier.

The Hero Realms Journeys Kickstarter marks the second time Hero Realms has come to the crowdfunding platform. In 2016, the base game raised more than $550,000 from almost 7,000 backers. The Ruin of Thandar, which allowed fans to play cooperatively, released soon after, turning Hero Realms into an RPG-like leveling deckbuilding game with cooperative play. Since then, Hero Realms has exploded in popularity, winning fans all over the world.

White Wizard Games is excited to bring new layers to PVP Hero Realms games, and to bring on the next chapter in cooperative play.

Hero Realms uses a system similar to that of Star Realms Deckbuilding Game, which won seven Game of the Year awards upon its release in 2014.

REDMOND, WASHINGTON (November 8, 2018): On Monday Paizo Inc. began “When the Stars Go Dark,” the last part of the Doomsday Dawn adventure in the massive, public, and free Pathfinder Playtest. In Doomsday Dawn’s final chapter, the players explore high-level play in the heroic climax of the Pathfinder Playtest. The playtest runs through the end of the year.

“When the Stars Go Dark” takes place in 4718 ar (the present). “Using the White Axiom and the Last Theorem, the heroes from Magnimar must do whatever it takes to stop the Doomsday Dawn,” said Jason BulmahnDirector of Game Design at Paizo, introducing the scenario.

 

Today also marks the release of the absolutely huge Pathfinder Playtest Update 1.6, which adds or adjusts aspects of every class in the game! These changes range from a small alteration in stances that affects the fighter to major changes for the alchemist and paladin, and are just a fraction of what Paizo is doing behind the scenes to make the game even better.

If players haven’t completed their run through the previous parts, they still have until the end of the year to play and tell Paizo what they think. Once they have wrapped up “When the Stars Go Dark,” they should make sure to complete the surveys and give the game designers their feedback on Part 7 of Doomsday Dawn!

The free playtest bundle, updates, alternate resonance system, Pathfinder Society playtest scenarios, surveys, and more can all be found at PathfinderPlaytest.com. Players can learn more about Pathfinder, participate in forums, read blog posts, and sign up for email updates at paizo.com.

Join the Pathfinder Playtest designers every Friday throughout the playtest on the Paizo Twitch Channel (twitch.tv/officialpaizoto hear all about the process and chat directly with the team. The channel hosts live play every Thursday from 2–5 p.m. PST and discussions with the design team every Friday at 4 p.m. PST.

PRESS RELEASE – TORG Eternity: The Nile Empire

TORG Eternity: The Nile Empire

The award winning Torg Eternity is back and bolder than ever with its newest addition to this tabletop roleplaying classic.

 

The World Is Getting Bigger

This latest expansion will bring everything a player could want in a world set in a 1930’s pulp fiction novel.  The Nile Empire Kickstarter is scheduled to launch November 20th will bring new adventures, new heroes and a host of new villains to widen the world of Torg Eternity.

This Kickstarter will have a host of new products for fans of TORG Eternity to sink their teeth into along with fantastic new stretch goals to salivate over and want you to bring all your friends into backing.

 

Pulp Power

The Nile Empire is where pulp is reality.  Based on the 1030s where the action is bold, melodrama is…dramatic, and death is temporary.  Most of the time.

Your heroes will have epic battles with weird evil scientists, fascist dictators, and perhaps even the Mummy.  All set in a land once again ruled by the mighty Pharaohs of antiquity.

Now being an archeologist in Egypt is more than brushing the sand off an old relic from a decayed empire.   Now ancient powers have been awoken in this new reality and now opening that tomb had a distinct possibility of releasing a terrifying Mummy.

Or will your simple vacation turn into a dramatic chase with fascist thugs and hired hitmen through the rooftops of Cairo as you race against time to return the stolen artifact to its rightful resting place in order to avoid the curse?

 

Now You Too Can Have Your Very Own Nemesis

In the Nile Empire where the rules of classic pulp fiction are king, super villains abound and their evil plots are as over the top as their names are.   In the classic 30’s fashion a hero is not a true hero unless she has had one of these evil-doers claim she is her nemesis.  You never know when you will meet your soon to be nemesis and really begin your path to becoming a true hero.

Can you stop your nemesis from completing his diabolical plans from world domination or will you wind up tied to the end of a rope dangling over a pit filled with crocodiles?

 

Return of The Pharaoh

The coming of the Eternity Lords to earth has brought a host of changes to the reality we all must live with and in Egypt this has brought back the ancient rulers of the Nile.

Once again, the men worshiped as the children of gods dominate the Nile valley and rule with incomprehensible powers of old.   The palaces of the Pharaohs are teeming with life as these ancient rulers have regained their rightful place.

PRESS RELEASE – Dynamite Launches Kickstarter for First Pathfinder Resin Statue Today!

Dynamite Launches Kickstarter for First Pathfinder Resin Statue Today!

Kickstarter Promotion Available for Only a Limited Time with Special Pledge Rewards For Supporters!

October 23, 2018, Mt. Laurel, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment announces a Kickstarter campaign for the first-ever resin statue for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The publisher continues their strong partnership with gaming leader Paizo Inc. following years of expanding the lore of the game’s world. Backers can preorder their copies of the limited-edition statue and bundle and a range of extras currently available only through the Kickstarter.

Seoni, one of the most popular iconic heroes in the Pathfinder universe, was an obvious choice for the statue. The powerful Varisian spellcaster is perfect with her intricate tattoos and patterned clothing. The high-quality resin statue stands approximately 12 inches tall. The tattoos and other details like “dirt” and battle damage are all hand painted.

The statue is available in multiple variants. A “Spellcasting” edition portrays Seoni using her signature magic using a plastic energy effect. The “Battle Ready” edition swaps that out for her staff and an alternate pose. The Spellcasting version is available unpainted for the DIY enthusiasts.

Supporters can choose among a range of reward tier options, including Dynamite’s well-received comics, from the recent Spiral of Bones series to a complete set of nine graphic novel volumes – over 1,600 pages of Pathfinder content! Another option is the campaign setting book Sandpoint, Light of the Lost Coast signed by author James Jacobs. And of course, t-shirts! Or go big and get all the above!

Most exciting is the opportunity for tabletop devotees to collaborate with Dynamite and a professional sculptor to develop and create 10 custom pewter miniatures up to 35 millimeters tall.

“We’ve been creating great Pathfinder comics with Paizo over the last half-decade, but today, I’m immensely excited to announce the expansion of that partnership, starting with our first Pathfinder statue of Seoni,” shared Nick Barrucci, Dynamite Publisher/CEO. “We worked hand in hand with our friends at Paizo to create this beautiful statue, and to add so many cool collectibles and comics at different pledge levels. I have no doubt the fans will enjoy this beautiful piece.”

“It’s been a joy working with Nick and the team at Dynamite to bring Seoni to life,” said Erik Mona, Paizo’s Publisher and Chief Creative Officer. “The attention to detail we’ve seen as they’ve produced the comic line is mirrored in the production values of the statue, and we’re excited to see these made available to Pathfinder players.”

CRASH A PIRATE PARTY IN PART 6 OF DOOMSDAY DAWN

Lead with skills and spells in this intrigue-themed chapter of the Pathfinder Playtest!

REDMOND, WASHINGTON (October 22, 2018): Today Paizo Inc. began the play-through of “Red Flags,” the sixth of seven parts in the Doomsday Dawn adventure, in the massive, public, and free Pathfinder Playtest. In this chapter, players create new 14th-level characters with skill sets that favor infiltration, knowledge, and subtlety rather than aggressive combat prowess.

Jason BulmahnDirector of Game Design at Paizo, set the scene: “An ancient tome, the Last Theorem, has been located in the possession of a Shackles pirate captain. Fortunately, an upcoming gala at his fortress gives you the opportunity to acquire the relic.”

Today also marks the release of Pathfinder Playtest Update 1.5, which modifies spell damage. Throughout the playtest the Paizo design team has listened to players and modified core systems like proficiencies, difficulty classes, death, dying, skills, classes, ancestries, and multiclassing archetypes.

Additionally, separate from the main playtest, Paizo has released an alternate version of the item resonance system for testing using the Raiders of Shrieking Peak scenario and an encapsulated set of rules. Learn more from this Paizo blog post: https://paizo.com/community/blog/v5748dyo6sgbn?The-Resonance-Test.

PRESS RELEASE – The World of Darkness Befalls Austin, Texas in Gruesome Live-Action Roleplay Event – The Night in Question

White Wolf Entertainment — creators and publishers of the World of Darkness storytelling universe — will soon host a live-action night you’ll never forget.

On November 17, 2018, the dark and conflict-ridden world of the iconic tabletop RPG Vampire: The Masquerade will come to life in Austin, Texas for a realistic and gruesome live action roleplay (LARP) experience.

Set in the year 1998 at an illegal rave in the woods outside of Austin, Texas, The Night In Question features an engrossing story and horrifying, professionally created sets, costumes, and — of course — blood and gore. The fully-immersive event explores the monstrous nature and conflict of vampire clans from White Wolf’s supernatural World of Darkness. Participants will take part in an intense LARP — as either nefarious vampires who are at war with one another, or unknowing humans caught in the blood-drenched frenzy. Fans of the Vampire series can expect a classically-themed reflection of the vicious Sabbat faction.

Jackalope Live Action Studios is an experienced host of LARPs that enforces strict guidelines about player consent and safety, allowing participants to opt-out of interactions with content and characters of their choosing. The team is advised by Bjarke Pedersen and Johanna Koljonen from Participation Design Agency (PDA), creators of the Diana Jones Award-nominated Nordic Vampire game End of the Line and the immensely successful Enlightenment in Blood.

For more information about Jackalope’s safety policies, visit: http://the-night-in-question.jackalope-larp.com/the-event/content-and-limits.

Tickets to The Night In Question are available starting at $39.00 at: http://the-night-in-question.jackalope-larp.com/tickets. The event begins at 11 AM CT on Saturday, November 17th, 2018, and the concert/game site will be held at Cauldron’s Keep (9703 FM 20, Dale, TX 78616).

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Fleshrot Venom (Ex)

A sandstalker’s stinger is loaded with a nasty payload of acid and venom. On a successful stinger attack, the target must make a DC 11 Fortitude check or be injected with fleshrot venom. If afflicted, this venom requires a DC 11 Fortitude save every turn. Every failed save causes it to progress one step down the Constitution poison track. Curing this affliction requires either three successful saves, which need not be consecutive, or one dose of antivenom derived from sandstalker saliva. The antivenom can be created using at least one bulk of saliva and a successful DC 10 Medicine check. A sandstalker’s body can be harvested for 1d4 bulk of saliva and 1d2 doses of fleshrot venom, each requiring a DC 13 Survival check to harvest.

ECOLOGY

Environment deserts, dry grasslands, any arid environment
Organization single, pair

Sandstalkers are the apex predators of their native environments. Their preferred hunting method is to simply burrow beneath the sand and lie in wait for prey. When they detect something passing by with their tremorsense, they burst from the sand to seize it in their pincers and sting it repeatedly. They will do their best to hold onto the victim and get in multiple stings, but one sting is all they really need. Some will even let prey go after delivering the first sting, avoiding wasting energy by struggling to hold onto the prey and simply following it until the toxin fully sets in and they die. It’s a curiosity that a sandstalkers venom actually acts more like a virus than any poison or toxin. The substance is composed of two parts, an acidic base and a specialized series of cells suspended within it. Once injected, the acid breaks down the flesh f the victim, which the cells quickly consume as raw material to replicate at an incredible rate. As a side effect and as waste products, the cells produce more acid, which damages more of the body, which lets the cells reproduce more quickly, and so on until the victim is melted from the inside out.

PRESS RELEASE – FIGHT AN ALIEN INVASION WITH STARFINDER ALIEN ARCHIVE 2

FIGHT AN ALIEN INVASION WITH 
STARFINDER ALIEN ARCHIVE 2

 

Over 100 science-fantasy species for both Players and Game Masters

REDMOND, WASHINGTON (October 17, 2018): Paizo Inc. released the Starfinder Alien Archive 2 today, new for the award-winning Starfinder Roleplaying Game. The 160-page hardcover rulebook presents over 100 bizarre life-forms, both classic and new, and has rules options for both Players and Game Masters. It is available for purchase at paizo.com and retailers worldwide at an MSRP $39.99 for hardcover and $9.99 for PDF.

Robert G. McCreary, Creative Director for the Starfinder RPG spoke of the book’s broad appeal. “With a whole galaxy to explore, there’s always a need for more aliens to inhabit the distant worlds the player characters will visit. Alien Archive 2 showcases a variety of exotic new creatures, from sapient extraterrestrial civilizations to giant spaceborne life forms. But Alien Archive 2 is more than just another bestiary for Game Masters. Players will find a wealth of new rules inside just for them—whether it’s a new alien species to play, like the canine vlaka, or new armor, weapons, magic items, and technology, like the fungal computer. Every science fantasy cantina needs a bunch of weird aliens to fill its booths and bar stools, and Alien Archive 2 has you covered!”

The creatures in this codex will challenge adventurers no matter where in the galaxy they may travel. What’s more, player rules for over a dozen species let players not just fight aliens, but be them. Gamers can play everything from an uplifted bear to a sentient slug!

The book also includes new alien technology to help give characters an edge, including armor, weapons, magic items, and spells. It adds new Starfinder rules, including magical polymorphing and environmental template grafts that empower players to modify creatures to fit them to any world!

Explore the Starfinder Alien Archive 2 at paizo.com/starfinder.

PRESS RELEASE – CLAIM YOUR HERITAGE, LEVEL-UP, AND JOIN THE CRUSADE IN PART 5 OF DOOMSDAY DAWN, “THE HEROES OF UNDARIN”

CLAIM YOUR HERITAGE, LEVEL-UP, AND JOIN THE CRUSADE IN PART 5 OF DOOMSDAY DAWN, “THE HEROES OF UNDARIN”

The Pathfinder Playtest continues to evolve with an ancestry rules update!

REDMOND, WASHINGTON (October 9, 2018): Paizo Inc. turned its attention today to “The Heroes of Undarin,” the fifth of seven scenarios in the Doomsday Dawn adventure in the worldwide, free Pathfinder Playtest. In this chapter, players create new hardy 12th-level characters who are accustomed to facing terrible foes in the Worldwound, a land ruined by demonic powers.

“A group of agents is sent deep into the Worldwound to uncover the secrets of the White Axiom. You are sent to protect them,” said Jason BulmahnDirector of Game Design at Paizo, setting the scene.

Throughout the playtest the Paizo design team has listened to players and made changes to the game, including modifications to core systems like proficiencies, difficulty classes, death, dying, skills, classes, and multiclassing archtypes. Today marks the release of Update 1.4, which delivers an overhaul of the ancestries. Starting with this update, when players make a character, they select not only an ancestry but also a heritage from within that ancestry. The heritage gives them additional physical characteristics based on their lineage, and choice of heritage is in addition to the ancestry feat that they gain at 1st level.

Bulmahn added, “The one thing we’ve heard mentioned over and over is that many of you felt like the ancestries weren’t quite giving enough at 1st level. We also saw a number of responses saying that taking a feat to be a half-elf or half-orc was too steep a price to pay. This update makes changes to the way that ancestries work, while also giving you some additional high-level ancestry feats to use in your game!”

 

In addition to surveys on Chapters 1 through 5 of Doomsday Dawn, there are now surveys up for Ancestries, Classes, Monsters, Hazards and the Rules as a whole. The playtest bundle, updates, and surveys are all free to download at PathfinderPlaytest.com.

Players can learn more, participate in forums, read blog posts and sign up for email updates on paizo.com. The Paizo Twitch channel (twitch.tv/officialpaizohosts live play every Thursday from 2-5 PM Pacific and discussions with the design team every Friday at 4 PM Pacific.

PRESS RELEASE – Tales of the Old Margreve PDFs Tiers Are Now Available

EDITOR’S NOTES: I reviewed this Kickstarter on the Open Gaming Network here.

Details about the addition of PDFs to Kobold Press’ Tales of the Old Margreve Kickstarter campaign can be read here.

 

News from the Warrens
This Forest is Filled with Fabulous Treasure!
Did you hear? We recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a new 5e adventure book: Tales of the Old Margreve! It comes with a Player’s Guide containing new player options that will help you explore the dark, primeval forest. The adventures are set in the Old Margreve forest of Midgard—and it’s easily transferable to any ancient, mystical forest in your own campaign setting! You can now pledge towards getting it in print, PDF, or your virtual tabletop of choice!
We talked a lot about the Tales of the Old Margreve Kickstarter campaign in the last edition of the Kobold Courier; but we’ve burst through several huge stretch goals since then, so there’s plenty more to talk about in this issue! Let’s check out the secret treasures of the ancient woodland. Read on, fellow kobolds!
5th Edition roleplaying adventures in the deep and menacing forest, for PCs level 1 to 10
Forests in fantasy roleplaying games are dark places, full of secrets. With this project, we bring the Old Margreve to the 5th Edition of the world’s most popular RPG. The Margreve is an ancient, enchanted forest that defends itself from those who come to cut its timber, poach its creatures, or steal its magic. Within its borders the Old Ways are strong, the word of the druids carries great weight, and griffons, dragons, and stranger creatures nest and hunt, undisturbed by humans, dwarves, or other lordlings.
Until your adventuring party shows up. Then things get really interesting.
Tales of the Old Margreve is a brand-new book from Kobold Press filled with
new adventures, encounters, monsters, and everything you need to make a memorable 5th Edition campaign. Whether your campaign is set entirely in the forest, or simply takes a brief detour there, this book will help make your wilderness adventures thrive!
The Old Margreve Kickstarter is made up of three main parts:
  • The Adventures! The Tales of the Old Margreve adventure campaign hardcover for the GM.
  • A Player Resource. The Margreve Player’s Guide softcover gives the players of this campaign knowledge and resources that will help them navigate the lightless boughs of this ancient forest.
  • Miniatures (Unlockable Only!) If we unlock this stretch goal, the campaign will also set of thick cardboard standups, the Margreve Pawns, similar to those created for Tome of Beasts and the Creature Codex.
But that’s not all! More than a dozen stretch goals unlock new adventures, monsters, maps,a dn more. Some will increase the size of the campaign book , making it an even better deal, and some expand the Player’s Guide!
In the end, some experiments are interesting but not successful. For this Kickstarter we’d planned to focus on print and VTT; but the backer support for PDF is too huge to ignore. So Tales of the Old Margreve also includes PDF options!
Our goals are primarily about improving the hardcover book by adding new material to the adventures, expanding the lore of the deep forest, and providing more player options.
That said, we also have several big goals to unlock: a poster map of the forest village that appears in several adventures, the set of custom pawnsmentioned above, and more will certainly become available as the campaign goes on!
Over the past week, we’ve unlocked 7 incredible stretch goals, adding additional content to the Tales of the Old Margreve adventure book and theMargreve Player’s Guide. Every stretch goal makes these books thicker!
Here are the goals we’ve already achieved, thanks to our backers:
And More?
Those seven unlocked stretch goals are amazing… but we’re not done yet. The Old Margreve forest contains dangers and treasures beyond imagining. Take a look at just a tiny sample of the stretch goals you can help us unlock.
The secrets of the Old Margreve are deep and dark, and the hidden depths of the Tales of the Old Margreve Kickstarter campaign are far from fully revealed. Keep an eye out on the Kickstarter page (and on our social media and future Kobold Couriers) for more as we navigate to this forest’s heart.
One Final, Incredible Prize
Decades ago, when the game of D&D was young, a man named Dennis Sustare created a class that lives on to this day: the Druid. Indeed, Gary Gygax was not the creator of the druid class, but we have good news. Dennis Sustare has agreed to join us in creating brand-new spells, items, and even a new subclass for the 5th edition druid. New druid material by the guy who created the class for D&D? Only the mystical forest can hold such wonders.
We want to make this happen, but we can only do it with your support. Help us break through to this mind-bogglingly cool stretch goal!
Do We Have Miniatures for You:
Arise, Creature Codex and Tome of Beasts Pawns!
Fully 300 pawns for your 5th Edition game featuring fearsome monsters from the Tome of Beasts, from tiny to huge!
And the same for the brand-new book of monsters, the Creature Codex. Get 300 full-color pawns for the new monsters in the greatest monster manual since the Tome of Beasts!

​Sequel to Tales from the Loop RPG raises $400,000 on Kickstarter – with 24 hours to go!

Free League Publishing – Oct 08, 2018 15:09 BST

Welcome back to the Loop. Nothing will ever be the same again. This time you can die.

Things from the Flood are coming. With one day left of the Kickstarter, Free League Publishing’s sequel to the multiple award-winning Tales from the Loop RPG, based on the wondrous worlds of Simon Stålenhag, has raised over 3,600,000 SEK – the equivalent of $400,000 – from thousands of backers across the world.

The crowdfunding campaign for Things from the Flood, the sequel to the Tales from the Loop RPG, ends on Tuesday, October 9 2018 9:00 PM CEST.

THINGS FROM THE FLOOD ON KICKSTARTER
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1192053011/things-from-the-flood-sequel-to-tales-from-the-loo/description

The time has come to return to the Loop. Things from the Flood thrusts the Tales universe into a grim and bleak alternate 1990s. You will step into the shoes of a teenager growing up in a decade of change – and disaster. Gone are the childlike tales of wonder and discovery, in their place are dark threats to the Teens and their surroundings. Create new Teens or let your Kids from Tales from the Loop grow older.

Everything is changing, everything is falling apart. Still, your lives go on as before. You go to school, fall miserably in love, try to do everything possible to fend of boredom. When you hear about teens going missing, and even turning up dead, you realize its time to gather the group again. One way or another you’ll find out what these Things from the Flood really are. Balance day to day life with solving mysteries with your friends. But remember – this time you can die.

Things from the Flood presents a darker, more mature version of Stålenhag’s hallmark retro sci-fi art with mysteries by acclaimed writer Nils Hintze, lead writer on Tales from the Loop, and game design by Free League.

So far, 22 stretch goals have been unlocked in the Kickstarter campaign, including new dice set, GM screen, printed mystery book, a mystery generator and several additional mysteries by esteemed game writers such as Nils Hintze and Rickard Antroia.

Free League Publishing is a Swedish publisher dedicated to speculative fiction. We have published several award-winning tabletop role-playing games and critically acclaimed art books set in strange and wondrous worlds.

And we are proud to say that our latest roleplaying game Tales from the Loop RPG based on Simon Stålenhags iconic artbooks made a grand slam at the ENnie Awards 2017, winning five Gold ENnies – among them Best Game.

PRESS RELEASE – Free League and Järnringen Become One

Free League and Järnringen Become One

Free League Publishing – Oct 05, 2018 10:38 BST

Free League Publishing and Team Järnringen, two of Sweden’s leading publishers of tabletop roleplaying games on the international market, will become one. The merger of these publishers of acclaimed RPGs such as Tales from the Loop, Symbaroum and Mutant: Year Zero, is underway. The combined company, to be named Free League Publishing, is planning several major game launches in the year to come.

“We’re very happy that the merger is finally happening,” says Free League co-founder Tomas Härenstam. “We have a long history with Järnringen, great respect for their work, and we share similar philosophies on game design. Together we will be stronger, better, and have a greater international reach. And we’ll have even more fun at work.”

The two teams are already working together, with former Järnringen members involved in current Free League projects, and vice versa. To the combined company, Järnringen brings the acclaimed fantasy RPG Symbaroum, which will now become part of Free League’s line-up of award-winning games such as Mutant: Year Zero, Coriolis – The Third Horizon, and Tales from the Loop, as well as the upcoming RPG Forbidden Lands and Crusader Kings – The Board Game.

Free League was initially created ten years ago, as a group of freelancers writing supplements for earlier (Swedish) versions of Mutant and Coriolis, published by a previous incarnation of Järnringen. The fact that these two game franchises are still part of the Free League RPG lineup today is appreciated by the members of Team Järnringen.

“There are many benefits of this merger,” say’s Järnringen co-founder Mattias Johnsson Haake. “But of course, the idea of working on Mutant and Coriolis again is especially appealing. Coriolis was created by us, and is in a way like a child we never got to see grow up. Mutant also has a special place in our hearts.”

The joint company will be named Free League Publishing, a decision made in full agreement between both companies. Free League Publishing has had a longer presence on the international market and a bigger reach among both gamers and sales partners. In addition, the name Free League is taken from a faction in the Coriolis RPG.

Fans and gamers of Free League and Järnringen games should not experience any immediate impact from this merger. All existing game lines will continue as planned. In addition, a number of new game projects are being planned for 2019. More information on these will be revealed at a later date.

Free League Publishing is a Swedish publisher dedicated to speculative fiction. We have published several award-winning tabletop role-playing games and critically acclaimed art books set in strange and wondrous worlds.

Our first game, the post-apocalyptic Mutant: Year Zero was awarded a Silver ENnie for Best Rules 2015.
