Dice Towers: Monster Art

Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild

“Oh, a dice tower… one of those 3D-printed things.”

No. This is not that. This is one you print on cardstock paper with a regular printer.

“I don’t think I need one.”

You didn’t need six sets of fancy dice either. There’s not much that’s really needed for RPGs, instead it’s about fun and creativity. These dice towers are loaded with contagious creativity.

The most crafty person in your group has a wooden rolling tray with a snake wood-burned into it. Sure, it’s nice. Then, you unpack a dice tower that looks like badass beholder.  “This guy could carve that snake into a stone floor in like two seconds… but… it would probably come out more crazy than snakey.”

  • Add drama to your rolls, but keep the dice under control.
  • Use the provided art, or make them your own with character portraits, fantasy scenes, or campaign maps.
  • Plenty of room for rolling hit and damage dice together.
  • Double-layer cardstock design holds up to use, and produces a satisfying sound.
  • Portable: Tower yard is also a lid for travel.
  • Eliminate any doubts about fair rolls, or whether a nat 20 on the floor counts.
  • Make your rolls feel even more random by bouncing your dice off three baffles that bear quirky references, catch-phrases, or your own inside jokes.
  • Build group cohesion with campaign-specific art.
  • Metal dice? Protect your mom’s table and your ability to host future sessions there.
  • Gift them to players or DM as a unique accessory that you made yourself.

Grimalkin, an Original Race for D&D 5e

Publisher: Dungeon Masters Guild

The grimalkin were once a people divided. There were grimalkin native to the Feywild and grimalkin native to the Shadowfell. The two sides were locked in a war which, for grimalkin, meant an endless parade of usually harmless, often elaborate, and occasionally cruel pranks. As the war dragged on from decades to millennia, denizens of the Shadowfell and the Feywild conspired with one another for a way to be rid of these nuisances for good. Eventually an agreement was struck and the grimalkin were driven from the Shadowfell and the Feywild and a curse was laid over their race that only so many could gather in each of those realms at a time. Although annoyed at having to endure the consequences of forced relocation, the grimalkin were quite pleased with the dramatic extent of the reaction their warring had elicited in others.

You might enjoy playing a grimalkin if you…

  • <3 cats
  • want to play a prankster with a knack for stealing others fortunes
  • really <3 cats

You can get the grimalkin bundled with 11 other races in The Book of Uncommon Ancestry.

Mass Mutation

Announcing the Fourth Set of KeyForge Archon Decks

The world of the Crucible is pushed and pulled by constant twists and turns, but a great change is coming—unlike anything we’ve seen before. A vault containing mysterious dark æmber has been opened, causing strange and unknowable transformations. While each House must decide to condemn or enjoy the dark æmber mutations, one thing is certain: KeyForge will never be the same!

Pre-order your own copy of Mass Mutation at your local retailer or online through our website with free shipping in the continental U.S. today!

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Mass Mutation, the fourth set of Archon Decks for KeyForge!

The KeyForge cardpool grows and expands once more with Mass Mutation, giving you access to billions upon billions more completely unique decks—decks with their own strategies and tactics that only you can truly master. Drawing from a cardpool of 422 cards, Mass Mutation brings over 250 brand-new cards to your decks, and with the introduction of dark æmber, mutation runs rampant. You’ll find strange new versions of familiar characters, massive creatures that stretch across more than one card, and the triumphant return of House Sanctum.

As with previous sets of KeyForge, there are plenty of ways for you to enter the game. If you’re already playing, you can easily pick up an assortment of Mass Mutation Archon Decks, each offering a ready-to-play unique deck. Or, if you’re getting into the game for the first time, the Mass Mutation Deluxe Deck contains one deck and tokens for one player, while the Two-Player Starter Set contains two decks, paper playmats, and tokens for you and your opponent. Whether you’ve been playing KeyForge since the first day, or it’s just now catching your eye, Mass Mutation is the perfect time to get started.

Dark Æmber Mutations

The vault of dark æmber has been opened, and the mutations that it causes are already running rampant across the Crucible. These mutations are not inherently good or evil, though House Sanctum would certainly argue otherwise. But although each House chooses to despise or embrace the mutation, one thing is undeniable—the changes that it brings to familiar creatures are certainly strange.

Bad Penny has been a familiar creature since the game’s very first set, Call of the Archons. With Mass Mutation, however,

With the tragic death of the Emperor, ripples flow out through all of Rokugan, disturbing the natural order of all things—and nowhere more than in the Imperial Palace itself.

An Interview With Joseph Goodman

Our partner Akileos Publishing is currently crowdfunding the French edition of DCC RPGwhich we strongly encourage you to support—and they recently posted an interview with Joseph Goodman, owner of Goodman Games. Akileos posted this interview on their crowdfunding site as an update in French, but it was conducted in English—and we thought you might like to read it yourself.

Here is the English version of the interview for those who would like to see what’s going on in the head of the Dark Master these days!

Bonjour, Joseph! Thanks for taking some time to answer a few questions for the horde of French DCC fans. Could you first introduce yourself and tell us your background, how to came to play RPG then become a publisher?

Hello everyone! I have been playing games of all kinds since I was very young. I first played D&D sometime in grade school. My first game was with my brother and his friend on the back porch steps. At the time, I thought monster hit dice were the number of dice the monsters rolled to attack. My main memory of this game was that the monsters won every encounter because they were rolling 3d8 or 4d10 to attack, based on their hit dice, while the PCs were only rolling 1d20. Oops! Misinterpreting the rules is a shared memory for many of us, I think.

Like most gamers, I have cycled through many different gaming experiences at different times. I spent about four years obsessed with Bolo, which was the first real-time internet-capable multi-player game. This was way back in 1993 before most people had e-mail addresses. (Any old Bolo players out there in France?) Prior to that, my brother and I spent several years playing Warhammer 40,000. We set up a gigantic 8’x8’ wargaming table in the basement where the space marines battled orcs for many years.

It was this Warhammer 40,000 experience that led me to publishing. I had always written down my ideas, starting with a self-designed role-playing game called Mental Players & Machine Guns, which I played with the neighborhood kids in middle school for a year or two. My brother and I generated reams of new WH40K material during our extensive campaigns. In high school, I decided to submit this for publication. I experienced multiple dead ends for a variety of reasons. I attended a high

Publisher: Elven Tower

Hey, Traveler!

In our Brochure Adventure Series, we fit a full one-shot scenario in a single brochure! Brochure Adventures are system neutral and include all the relevant information for a GM to kickstart a one-shot game.

This is the fifth installment of the brochure adventure series. Similar to my one-page adventures, these include everything in the brochure and they are all system neutral. This one-shot adventure is about a mysterious woman who lives in upstream near the mountain with her sibling. The woman, Madame Iuv, has a shady reputation. She is a seer who predicts the future with a deck of cards and a crystal ball. People think she can manipulate fate but they also think that consulting her wisdom taints one’s fate and causes terrible things to happen. A group of valiant adventurers might feel the urge to consult this diviner in search of a crucial piece of lore. But they will leave frustrated and empty-handed because Madame Iuv is not what she seems.

What’s included:

  • PDF files for easy handling. Prints on letter-sized paper

  • Individual full-res of each sheet (Letter-size 300 DPI)

  • Map variations: labeled, unlabeled (not in the brochure)

The rocky ground makes for rough travel, however the roads have their own dangers, for the dirt trade road before you contains the blood of those recently killed…

Dozens of guards bodies lie before you, mutilated around an empty broken cart, it’s cargo long gone.

Retired: A Storygame About the Ordinary Life of a Former Supervillain

Publisher: TaleSpinner Holdings

You figured that when you got out of the supervillain business your life would go much smoother…

Guess again.

The stakes may have changed when you hung up the costume, closed down the lair, and put away the death rays, but it’s still the same old trouble in Retired: A Storygame About the Ordinary Life of a Former Supervillain. It’s a two-player game, where one player is the Retiree and the other is The Narrator of a world dead-set on annoying a former supervillain trying to enjoy a return to regular life. The game world is built through play, starting off in small sessions set in your home and neighborhood before it expands into the wider world. From nosy neighbors and chores around the house which get out of hand to former rivals and alien invasions, your retirement isn’t going to be just puttering around the garden…

This includes My, Ahem, Former Dark Lord, an add-on to Retired where you are a (former) Dark Lord in a fantasy realm vanquished by the forces of Good and now just trying to get by…
