The merchant, who was very cunning, made the Troll a proposal…Welcome to Trade & Troll!

Journey To Ragnarok, a brand new project for 5th Edition (5e) about Norse Mythology is now live on kickstarter and over achieveing day by day.
The idea behind Journey To Ragnarok was to merge our biggest passions: the 5th Edition of the most famous role playing game of all time and, of course, Norse Mythology.
Every single event, NPC or encounter that will cross Adventurers’ path is the result of more than 15 years of love and research, readings and travels.
Our intent is to let the Adventurers discover and explore the true origins of Norse Mythology, that has deeply influenced Fantasy literature, games,comics and movies.
The author is Michele Paroli, an architect and a graphic designer but first of all a role-playing gamer and Dungeon Master. Then there’s Antonio dell’Aquila, in charge of marketing and comunication activities, a product manager in the everyday life, but also a roleplaying gamer and dungeon master since 1999.
The core team counts many veteran DMs and adventures designers and we’re proud to tell that we were part of the organization and DMs of the first ever D&D Adventurers League Epics Event in Italy @Lucca Comics&Games 2016 and @Play Modena 2017.

Mike Gnade, creator of the Kickstarter hit Brass Empire: a Steampunk Deckbuilding game, is returning to Kickstarter to seek funding for their new game, Maximum Apocalypse.
Maximum Apocalypse has been in development for over 2 years, and will launch on Kickstarter with the full art and design complete. The Kickstarter campaign will feature the game at $40.
In Maximum Apocalypse, civilization has already fallen. The players are survivors of the apocalypse whose mission is to survive the hostile landscape. The game map is randomly generated and different every time that you play. On each turn, a player can use up to four actions to explore the map, play cards, equip weapons, scavenge for resources, draw cards or battle off monsters.
Picking a unique survivor class within the group, players must plan their strategy and work together while leaning on their survivor’s strengths in order to defeat monsters and avoid starvation. For example, the Fireman is deadly up close with his ax and can easily chop down monsters; meanwhile the stealthy Hunter is great at scouting the map and avoiding traps — but roaming monsters are gathering quickly and time is running out. If you are overwhelmed by monsters or die of starvation, the players lose. If they can find enough gas and get it back to their van to escape, they all win and live to play another scenario.
Do you have what it takes to survive the apocalypse? Find out in Maximum Apocalypse: a cooperative roguelike adventure.
