Much Ado About EUPublisher: Jon Paget Roleplay

This single player adventure requires a pencil a piece of paper and 2 x d6 dice.

Celebrate the words of Shakespeare and indulge in some topical UK politics.  Can you influence the politicians politicians behind BREXIT to unite and see sense?  With Shakespeare on your side, anything is possible!

 Veteran Martial ArchetypesPublisher: Necromancers of the Northwest

Master the Art of War!

 

Now on its fifth edition, the world’s oldest roleplaying game presents a number of exciting options to allow players to customize their characters. It seems like just about every class in the game gives players a major choice that can heavily alter the way their character operates, such as a barbarian’s primal path, a paladin’s oath, or a warlock’s pact. While the core rules give every class a handful of these options to choose from, and additional supplements from Wizards of the Coast have provided a few more here and there, there’s no doubt that there’s plenty of room for more of these options to provide you with exciting new approaches to each class, which can give you a some new tricks, allow you to represent flavorful ideas and concepts that had no support previously, or completely turn the class’s basic role on its head. The Advanced Options series is here to give you those new options.

 

This installment focuses on providing new options for fighter characters, in the form of six new martial archetypes. Become a bodyguard and gain the ability to block attacks made against your allies. Blend divine magic and martial prowess to as a holy knight. Become an inspired knight and draw inspiration from legends of heroic deeds, pushing yourself and your allies to achieve feats otherwise beyond your means. Specialize in combating spellcasters and combating magic as a spell slayer. This book contains all of these archetypes, and more.

 

Take your game up to the next level with our advanced options for fifth edition today!

The Cursed Issue

If Dice Could Fly – Måns Danneman’s book casts dice in a high wire stunt show
When I got my review copy of Måns Danneman’s Dice: Rendezvous with Randomness, I was skeptical. I wanted more words, more historical lore on the dice I saw. I didn’t get it at first, but I don’t go to a concert to read about the bands. Danneman’s Dice is a collection of performances captured on camera.

Bloodthirsty Blades – Graeme Davis on Cursed Weapons
Cursed weapons have been a part of fantasy roleplaying games since the earliest days of Dungeons & Dragons. Mostly, their effects are quite mechanistic and dull: -1 to hit and damage may work well with the game system, but it hardly captures the grand scale of curses found in myth and folklore. Here are some thoughts about a common class of cursed weapon: the bloodthirsty blade.

The Doom that Came to Meeros – The First in a 3-part Mini Campaign to Mythras
Several months after suffering an earthquake, the city of Meeros has slowly recovered. Its patron god Myceras has been grudgingly placated after the cult heroine Anathaym of the Scarlet Spears, was cleared of betraying the city to an army of minotaurs. Though the man behind the machinations to depose Queen Herathos was crushed to death, the ghost of Misogynistes does not lie quietly in his mausoleum ... nor those who supported him in his attempted coup.

Live Free or Die – Freedom Fighters & Resistance in Mythras
This issue the theme is resistance. A ubiquitous term in the English language, the word resistance has a wide range of interpretations. Yet for this issue we shall take it as a chance to portray a group of freedom fighters, who can be inserted into almost any campaign due to their tactical pliancy and ability to adopt strange techno-logies. Although written for the Luther Arkwright setting, it should be easy to convert them to less flamboyant games.

The Crime & Punishment Issue

CSI Fantasy
This article takes a systemless look at “forensic magic” from British and European folklore, dating from the Middle Ages up to the 19th and early 20th centuries. In a low-magic fantasy game, some of them might actually work, and any of them can be used to provide interesting bits of colour to an investigative adventure. In a high-magic game, player characters will probably have access to more powerful magic that can achieve the same ends more reliably, but techniques like those described here might be used in rural communities and in the poorer quarters of a city, where “proper magic” is a luxury beyond the reach of ordinary folk.


Text: Graeme Davis, Art: Anders Larsson


As God is my Witness - The Judicium Dei in Medieval Europe
The Judicium Dei, or trial by ordeal, was perhaps one of the most colourful aspects of the medieval legal system, as well as one of the most misunderstood. The later use of various types of ordeal in witch-trials has led to the widespread impression that trial by ordeal was no more than a means of tormenting a prisoner whose fate was already sealed. While this may way have been the case in the 16th and 17th centuries, the original Judicium Dei of Anglo-Saxon law formed a coherent body of legislation revolving around the certainty of divine intervention on behalf of an innocent party.

Crime & Punishment – Why it Matters & Magical Items in Mythras
Death should be savoured, like a fine wine, from the perspective of the players themselves. There are many more ways to die than just a sword in the guts, and the dread of impending death is often overlooked. In this article you find a couple of examples of how to instill that fear of ultimate demise, drawn from literary sources that begin at the very dawn of history ...

An issue on mirrors and portals

Count Magnus Mythos – M. R. James Stories as a Backdrop for Roleplaying
Despite being “gifted with an almost diabolic power of calling horror by gentle steps from the midst of prosaic daily life,” as H.P. Lovecraft put it, the tales of M.R. James (1862-1936) have not received their due obeisance in the roleplaying game ecosystem. Partially this is because they make difficult models for games: the standard Jamesian antiquary hero makes Lovecraft’s protagonists look like Conan, and the slow build of James’ world-detail is if anything even more placid and innocent than Lovecraft’s witch-haunted or crumbling towns. Also unlike Lovecraft, James does not interweave his tales with a common mythology, aside from the common mythology of North European folklore, Old Testament and Apocryphal creepiness, and Anglican antiquarianism.


However, difficult is not impossible. With the right (ahem) spirit, a GM can adapt the stories of M.R. James into the backdrop of a horrific one-shot, or even an ongoing campaign. The Count Magnus Mythos, to name it after its most famous (and tentacle-adjacent) inhabitant, encompasses a wide variety of monstrous apparitions, black magic, and nefarious churchmen. Knitting it together is our job.

Mirrors & Portals - Mythras on Monster Island
Game masters can easily incorporate the following mini-adventure into any fantasy campaign by simply changing the appearance of the portal. For example, it could be an ornately framed silver mirror, covered by a sheet in the attic of a manor house, a ripple-free pool of water at the back of a cave, or even a dancing pillar of flame in a tomb. Such gateways can be found in classic stories such as The City of the Singing Flame by Clark Ashton Smith, or the wood between the worlds in the Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis.

I know we told you that we closed out the convention scenarios for 2017 but we were wrong! One of our favorite conventions (CafCon) is named differently and therefore overlooked! Problems at Vanessa’s Point is a nice little urban adventure that was made for six, 4th level players. The party hits town during a big celebration and is presented with a business opportunity. The local militia is out seeking a group of problems and the celebration needs some extra security.

This sandbox style scenario is filled with strange encounters for your own campaign or play it straight through! The scenario was at several 2017 Convention offerings and was always a big hit. The original characters are published under HOF4 (free).

 AberrationsPublisher: Dancing Lights Press
Use strange beings and alien creatures in character development, worldbuilding, and adventures!

People frequently want to add Lovecraftian horrors to their fantasy games, but they’ve been there since the beginning. Thing that are beyond the day-to-day existence of a standard high fantasy setting. Creatures so strange that their aims and desires are unfathomable. Beings that are so unlike humans, elves, and dwarves that they surely must originate in some alien world. These are our aberrations. Their appearance is bizarre, their abilities frightening, and their motives utterly utterly alien. These are things that should not exist anywhere outside of a nightmare.

It’s tempting to suggest that aberrations shouldn’t be part of your worldbuilding. In many ways they ought to defy explanation. They simply don’t belong, so just throwing them into your setting haphazardly feel appropriate. The thing is, once they’ve appeared they are part of the world. Their existence will lead people to question their beliefs about reality, cosmology, and even the nature of good and evil. Beyond being a quick scare, an aberration can shatter assumptions about everything, from historical facts to the nature of magic itself.

In this book, we’ll show you how to utilize these dreaded oddities in your worldbuilding endeavors. You’ll see how they can influence character, setting, and story elements. By the end, you’ll understand how to make aberrations into an essential, useful, and entertaining part of your campaign.
