November 28, 2012: A Shirt For Every Occasion!

Steve Jackson Games - Wed, 11/28/2012 - 06:52
Munchkin Polo ShirtA lot of you like to express your fandom of our games by wearing stuff, and we think that's awesome. But not all of our wearables are necessarily appropriate for all settings – that hot pink Chibithulhu T-shirt isn't exactly going to get rave reviews at that next business casual dinner, at the country club, or when you finally get to meet the parents. Sadly, in those situations, we're stuck with hiding our geekery.

Until now.

We're jazzed to announce our new, classy Munchkin Polo Shirt! It comes in black with the Munchkin head logo in gold, and is perfect for semi-formal occasions. And of course, it comes with a new rule.

Quantities are limited, so you'll want to get your shirt before these babies are gone! Find them at (and only at) Warehouse 23!

Warehouse 23 News: Great . . . Just, Great!

This isn't "the okay city." This isn't "the good city." This isn't even "the reasonably decent city you visit some weekends." This is The Great City: Backdrops – available on e23!

100 Travel Encounters - Tales for Dark Roads

RPGNow - Wed, 11/28/2012 - 03:23
100 Travel Encounters - Tales for Dark RoadsPublisher: Aetheric Dreams

Your players have set out on a long journey over the lawless land between cities and villages. During these times of war, petty rulers have their army stretched. They must defend their strongholds but also march out to contain their enemies. This has left the road to chaos. Bandits and worse take what they can, from those who are not swift enough to avoid them, or cannot hold their possessions through force of arms.

The road is a place where the curtain of civilisation is torn apart, and the stage is given to the beasts and killers amongst men. Yet there are those who take the gamble on barren paths; facing starvation, robbery and the elements, in the hope of gaining a reprieve from poverty or the confinement of besieged cities.

100 Travel Encounters - Tales for Dark Roads can be used as an idea-generator for whenever PCs begin a perilous overland journey. It also includes rules and new diseases for use within the Nights of the Crusades setting.

Toypocalypse Falls

RPGNow - Wed, 11/28/2012 - 01:52
Toypocalypse FallsPublisher: Top Rope Games

The Falls are remains of a small town in north-west section of the North American continent. Before the Great Dawning it was within the borders of the United State of Idaho, but now its only borders are the divides between the unsettled wastelands and the bastion of civilized toys that still live at its center. Unlike many cities in the Toypocalypse world this one enjoys the luxury of electricity thanks to a hydro-electric dam being maintained by the city’s oppressive government. 

The town is ruled by Centaur Alpha, a strange conglomeration of a toy, who rules with a quasi-deified plastic fist. His minions keep the dam powering the city functional and repress the toys who could someday oppose his rule. There are many other factions that make up the small community of The Falls, each of them opposing Centaur Alpha and his cruelty in their own ways. 

Where and how your PCs fit into the setting is up to you, as well as how they fit into the overall goals of each of the factions. Find the plot lines and hooks within the story that you find most interesting and decide how those plots will relate to the PCs. Let the PCs interact with those plots and adjust the responses of the factions accordingly.

Toypocalypse Falls is an introductory campaign and adventure setting for Toypocalypse. This PDF is intended to not only provide a campaign to play with your group but also to provide you an outline that you can use to create your own campaign settings. 

This campaign setting is a framework for you to create a chapter in a greater campaign for your players where this town and its factions continue their goals and your players become a major force in pioneering the freedom of the toys of The Falls. Contained within this book are the factions, motivations, locations, and plot hooks that should get you started.

RPGNow - Tue, 11/27/2012 - 23:46
New World Disorder ExpandedPublisher: Precis Intermedia
Note: this compiles the former PDF Collection into a single book (plus some new content), which is identical to the softcover version.

NEW WORLD DISORDER is an easy-to-learn, miniatures-based tabletop game that takes place in a very near and very dystopian future. This Expanded Edition includes the core rules, new options, and CyberZone and Zombie Apocalypse! add-ons.

Create deadly crews of vicious characters that improve as they accumulate experience from their firefights. Equip them using an extensive list of modern and near-future weapons that may just save their lives. Pit gangs of urban warriors against each other, as corporate mercenaries, mob-hitmen, cannibals, and who-knows-what-else fight for survival on the streets of this world gone wrong.

Enter the CyberZone, a prison for the hordes of illegally-mechanized citizens that once plagued the outside world. The residents take advantage of the power that their cybernetics provide -- from stronger limbs and better vision to mounted weapons and subdermal armor. Embrace the metal!

Instead of just facing off against competing crews, worry about a threat worse than simple death. Lose to flesh-eating zombies and characters rise to attack their own. Muster enough firepower to burn them to ashes, shred them to ribbons, or blast them to smithereens. Crews fight for survival among zombie swarms on the streets of this world gone wrong. Prepare for the apocalypse!

BONUS: Accessory pages included with download (area-effect templates and Disposable Heroes® Paper Miniatures); note that counters are no longer required for play.Price: $9.95

 Take on Establishments
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.00

"Take On Establishments" is a collection of physical establishments and locations, brief descriptions (sights, sounds, smells), an NPC, and corresponding moves for Dungeon World. Drop one or more establishments into an existing city or village, they are independently designed.

"Take On Establishments" contains 11 establishments: Basilica of the Sun, The Butcher Bound Pig, Buzzard Hockenpock's Furs and Trappings, Chamber of the Master, the Gated Entrance, In the Lavendar, Necropolis of the Fallen, The Ravens Rookery, The Skittering Warrens, The Tethered Titan, and the Wharf.

My take on establishments is that they should be occupied by interesting people, be a possible launch point for adventures, and be just as much a part of play as a dungeon.



 Take on Magic Items
 Regular price: $1.49
 Bundle price: $1.00

"Take On Magic Items" is a collection of magic items for Dungeon World, though a clever game master could easily translate these items into the fantasy system of choice, especially systems that encourage rulings not rules. 

"Take On Magic Items" contains 24 magic items including the Bearded Shield, Chains of the Drowned, Hairbrush of Fallen Locks, Miser's Amulet, Porcerlain Pig of Prosperity, Sanguine Mask, and more.

My take on magic items is that they should be interesting, have a cost, and be useful in interesting ways.

Some men learn to master a weapon.  Some men learn to command the laws of reality. Some men learn to call on the will of the gods themselves.You do not need such things: you have mastered yourself.You have learned the secret of fighting with nothing.  Perhaps you were part of a secret tradition, or a grand fighting school.  Perhaps you cobbled your skill together from a ‘school’ of hard knocks and a ‘master’ of pain and battle.  Whatever the case, you understand your body in a way that few others can even consider.You know how it moves, how it breaks, how it strikes. It is your greatest tool and your strongest defense. You are never unarmed, and never afraid, for you know the greatest secret there has ever been: with the proper skill, the body...


 The Warlock - A Dungeon World compatible class

Power is a difficult thing. Mortal men and women struggle daily to hold what few scraps they can obtain. Even the king upon his throne must safeguard his power with armies, decrees, policies. It is a long, hard road to travel.But not for you.Not you, no. You’ve found a shortcut, an easier way to gain everything you’ve ever wanted. Hard work is for people who can’t make the tough decisions you did, who aren’t meant for greater things. While your allies train and study, while your enemies prepare, you act. This is your world, your life, and you’re going to get everything you deserve.A shame you had to sell your soul to get it.

    Meet Agent Scott Baker

    Fantasy Flight Games - Tue, 11/27/2012 - 20:40
    Preview the First Chapter of Ritual of Fire, the Upcoming Fireborn Novel

    In September, we announced Ritual of Fire, an upcoming novel written by Jordan Ellinger. In the world of Fireborn, powerful scions walk the streets of modern London, oblivious to their true nature. Unknowingly, they carry within them the spirits of reincarnated dragons from an age of high fantasy. As magic begins to emerge once more in the 21st century, long-dormant memories begin to flood the minds of these scions, reminding them of their mystical heritage.

    Now, MI5 agent Scott Baker has begun to suspect a terrifying truth. Something seems to be taking control of London’s most influential leaders, and that shocking discovery has thrust Baker into a fight for his life. What mystical force is behind this apparent takeover? How does it relate to Baker’s increasingly disturbing visions?

    An Explosive Start

    In this first chapter of Ritual of Fire, the reader is introduced to Agent Baker as he attempts to escape a burning department store in the aftermath of an incendiary explosion. Baker is trying desperately to navigate the blaze in order to locate and save Elsa Green, the politician he’s been assigned to protect.

    Pathfinder Online Kickstarter Now Live!

    Paizo - Tue, 11/27/2012 - 20:24

    Pathfinder Online Kickstarter Now Live!

    Tuesday, November 27, 2012

    This is an exciting time at Goblinworks, and we wanted you to know about our latest development! As our biggest fans and customers, it is important to us that you are in the loop right away. Your support for Paizo and Pathfinder has allowed us to make Pathfinder the top RPG in the world! That success has lead us to license the MMORPG rights to our sister company, Goblinworks, so they can make a next generation fantasy sandbox MMO called Pathfinder Online. Last May, we launched a Kickstarter to fund a Technology Demo, and many of you supported us there. In turn, that Demo allowed us to get the funding we needed to put Pathfinder Online into production. Right now, a small team of very cool professionals are working very hard on building Pathfinder Online, and we have you to thank for that!

    But right now our team is limited in size. There are nine people working on Pathfinder Online—enough to get us to launch in a few years, but not enough to do it with the speed and scope we really want. So we are launching a new Kickstarter for the Pathfinder Online Fantasy Sandbox MMO. The purpose of this second Kickstarter is to get the money we need to make Pathfinder Online bigger, faster and better than we can with our current level of funding. It will let us hire more people and dedicate more resources to Pathfinder Online, potentially cutting the time to launch in half, and massively expanding the content and features available on release.

    Could we have gone out and got investment capital to do this? Sure, but with that investment comes costs and entanglements that could very well derail the vision that we have for Pathfinder Online. Investors don't like to push boundaries, color outside the lines, or think outside the box. Instead, they want you to do things only in ways already proven successful for other companies. It is their money, after all.

    Our vision for Pathfinder Online doesn't fit those boundaries. It doesn't color within the lines. It doesn't want to exist inside of a box. You already get that—you have believed in Paizo from the beginning and helped us to create a unique community around the Pathfinder RPG. We would rather report to you than to a group of investors who are only interested in making the biggest pile of money and having an early exit strategy. You are with us for the long haul. You believe in our vision for Pathfinder. We would prefer never to sacrifice this vision in pursuit of bigger profits. With you, we can make an MMO that we can all be proud of, and it can happen if we are successful with this Kickstarter. We can do this if enough folks want to become our "bosses" and work with us to make Pathfinder Online.

    Another cool aspect of this Kickstarter is that we are finally revealing how YOU can become an Early Enrollee and get involved with the Pathfinder Online Beta. As you probably already know, during the Beta, we are going to limit the number of folks who can enter the world of Pathfinder Online each month, so that we can slowly begin building the society that is going to make Pathfinder Online so successful. The new Kickstarter offers a limited number of slots for each month on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you back this Kickstarter, the earlier you will be able to get into the Beta. After the Beta, we'll open the game to everyone, and as part of this Kickstarter, you can preorder your copy of the game at a discounted price.

    Because our customers are so important to us, we're contacting you right away. We hope you take advantage of this early notice to become the first to join us as we crowdforge Pathfinder Online. Crowdforge? Glad you asked. Crowdforging is the word that we've come up with to represent the intense process we will use to work with you, our customers, to make Pathfinder Online the best MMO it can be. When you get into the Pathfinder Online Beta, you will become intimately involved with the decisions that go into making a game of this size. If you have helped Paizo playtest our various RPG projects, you understand what we are aiming for here. No other game will give you this type of access and input into its creation. But there are only a limited number of folks who will be able to get into the early stages of crowdforging this game, so make sure you back our Kickstarter soon!

    In closing, we would like to thank all of you for helping us make our dream a reality. We wouldn't be here without you, and we very much appreciate your ongoing support. For this Kickstarter to be a huge success, we're going to need your help getting the word out to the MMO and RPG communities. Please tell your friends on Facebook, Twitter, various messageboards, and anywhere gamers congregate. Together, we can grow the legions of fans interested in building our next generation fantasy sandbox MMO. With enough support, we can all make Pathfinder Online faster, bigger and better.

    The journey is just beginning!

    Houserule Footnotes: Spell Point Feats

    RPGNow - Tue, 11/27/2012 - 19:40
     Spell Point FeatsPublisher: Super Genius Games

    Welcome to the Houserule Footnotes: Spell Point Feats, the first in a planned series of short, concise products designed to support material presented in the Houserule Handbooks line of products. This product adds a series of feats for use with Houserule Handbooks: Spell Points, and requires that product to be useful.

    The 10 feats included here are designed to both give spell-point spellcasters access to the same kind of mechanical, numeric bonuses characters that use other limited-resource powers enjoy, and to showcase how the flexibility of the spell point system can be used to add interesting options to a campaign and its traditions of magic.

    The feats are:

    • Cooperative Casting: You can help other spellcasters fuel their spells.

    Shadowrun: Parageology

    Awakened Lands

    When you’re a shadowrunner, you look for every ally you can get, any advantage you can grab. Which means that if the ground beneath your feet can either help you or hurt the other guy, you’re going to find a way to make that happen.

    The earth is full of magic. Mana lines wriggle and writhe in different locales, and strange elements bubble up from the core of the planet. Some areas boost magic to seemingly impossible heights, while others drain it away, sucking mana into nothingness. There are powers out there, just waiting for you to call on—powers that may also be waiting to swallow you whole.

    Parageology is an essential guide to the magical powers that imbue the ground of the Sixth World. From the location and effects of mana lines across the globe to the powers of strange minerals unearthed since the Awakening, Parageologyprovides resources, plot hooks, and game rules to fuel adventures and campaigns tapping into the magic springing up from the earth.

    Parageology is for use with Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition.
