Tequendria: Fantastical Roleplaying is a brand new RPG inspired by the works of fantasy master Lord Dunsany and is available now as a pay what you want PDF from DriveThruRPG.
Tequendria is a rules-lite roleplaying game by Trollish Delver Games that puts players in the shoes of everything but the usual fantasy roles. The game boasts twenty archetypes, including Gravekeeper of Zum, who defends against the undead, a construct called the Doomgaunt, and the aethership pilot.
Locations are all inspired by Dunsanian stories, where adventurers can do battle against the god-spider Hlo-hlo in his underground network, or discover Babbulkund, the City of Marvel; and even assault the Tower Unvanquishable. Travel the wilds of Yann where the winter will bite as fiercely as the wolves, or delve in to the ancient Pits of Snood and face the demons within. Magic coarses through the veins of Tequendria, meaning every creature is somewhat capable of casting spells. Above the clouds of the world adventurers can take to their aether in mighty vessels, visiting strange alien worlds like Dim Carcosa and the Snurk Pits of the Bounds of Leng.
Tequendria is powered by Unbelievably Simple Roleplaying (USR), which is a quick, flexible system designed for beginners and veterans alike.
Creator Scott Malthouse said: “I was surprised that nobody has created a game inspired by Dunsany’s works. His works and worlds are so evocative that they make for rich game fodder. His stories don’t necessarily take place in the same world, which is why I wanted to bring everything together under one roof and put my own spin on his cities and countries.”
The book contains several works by Dunsany to allow new readers to experience his poetic writings first hand.

There is no single path to peace, but the Galactic Empire has ensured that all such routes are fraught with danger. The Consular works with the Force to bring peace wherever they go, and the all-new Disciples of Harmony sourcebook expands players’ options in the Star Wars: Force and Destiny role playing game, including three new specializations and adding on three new species.
Although all it takes to be a successful Consular is a desire to see justice done, some species are more inclined to seek balance and peace in a way that lines up with the ways of the Consular. The Arkanian, Cosian, and Pau’an species are presented in Disciples of Harmony, opening your campaign to cultures focused on Jedi lore, negotiating, and medicine, each having a unique view of the Force.
This preview provides a look at each of these three species and how they play into the role of the Consular.

The Sentinel is a hero apart from her peers. It’s not that they are perpetually willing to face insurmountable odds in the defense of pure ideals, helpless innocents, or hard justice, it’s that they are morally obligated to do that which others are unwilling to do in the name of righteousness. There is no duty too heavy, no threat too great that the Sentinel will not rise to meet. It is this implacable will that sets the Sentinel apart, that rises them above the rest.
Manage your talent choices more easily with the Sentinel Specialization Decks available now for the Star Wars™: Force and Destiny™ Roleplaying Game from Fantasy Flight Games.
These decks bring the new specializations introduced in the Endless Vigil source book right to your fingertips!
Each of the four decks, corresponding to one specialization and the Sentinel signature abilities, features full-color artwork and rules text for all of the talents available in each specialization. These handy cards make tracking and referencing your character’s talent options quick and easy for players and game masters alike.

Ninja Division Publishing LLC. and Paizo Inc. are proud to announce the Starfinder Miniatures collection – the first officially licensed miniatures for the epic campaigns and adventures that players, worldwide, will start experiencing with the launch of the Starfinder® RPG.
Set thousands of years in Pathfinder’s future, the Starfinder RPG is a stand-alone science fantasy game evolved from the Pathfinder RPG rules in which players take on the role of a ragtag starship crew exploring the countless mysteries of a weird galaxy. Starfinder is also designed to integrate easily with the Pathfinder RPG, allowing players of either game to port over monsters, items, and adventures with a minimal conversion effort.
Ninja Division is proud to announce a partnership with Paizo Inc. to bring fans of Starfinder an exciting range of pre-painted miniatures to accompany players on their Starfinder adventures. With painstaking detail and coloring, these pre-painted miniatures bring the heroic crews and explorers from Starfinder to life. The range of pre-painted miniatures will include both adventurers and the ships they use to traverse space, both scaled appropriately to use as gameplay pieces for their unique roles in the Starfinder game system.
Ninja Division Creative Director John Cadice comments: “Ninja Division has been working hard with Paizo to create a line of pre-painted miniatures for gamers. We are all fans of miniatures here, and lovers of Paizo’s fantastic RPG worlds. Starfinder has not disappointed in the richness of the races and designs we get to help bring to life for players.”
Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, announces today the initial product line-up for the highly anticipated Starfinder Roleplaying Game, the new science fantasy RPG set in the world of Pathfinder, ready for blast-off at Gen Con Indy August 2017.
Starfinder Creative Director James L. Sutter says: “The sculpts that Ninja Division have been creating for both characters and starships have been blowing our minds with their artistry and obvious love of the genre. I’m especially excited about the ships—I can’t wait to see the looks on my players’ faces the first time I pull out a bunch of the starship miniatures for a space battle!”
