Skirmisher Publishing Releases “100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest”

100-Oddities-e1499266634937

July 14, 2017

Welcome to “100 Oddities for an Enchanted Forest,” the eighth entry in Skirmisher Publishing’s popular “Oddities” series!

This publication includes 100 unique things characters might encounter in a sylvan setting and includes guidelines for introducing the Wild Hunt into your game sessions or stories.

Your characters are traveling from one region to another, such as from the keep they call home to a distant ruin, a frontier outpost, a battlefield, or the like. Making their way through the forest that lies between their point of origin and destination can be a simple matter of a couple of nights camping out and an encounter with a wandering monster … or it could be so much more.

Oddities are intended to aid storyteller creativity, turning possibly bland areas or gaming episodes into something more, and the goal of this publication is to make things more fun and to take your imagination in directions it might not otherwise have gone. They fill in the corners of a bookshelf, a room, a level, a story or scenario, with all the sorts of things that add interest but take loads of time to come up with.

HC SVNT DRACONES Launches First RPG Miniatures Expansion

June 25, 2017

HC SVNT DRACONES is a tabletop RPG created by Pierce Fraser, who has, through the help of Kickstarter supporters, launched the first expansion for the HC SVNT DRACONES anthro miniature line.

With the collaboration of Imagine 3D Miniatures, this line provides usable models for the tabletop RPG and also a massive line of modular anthro miniatures for use in any roughly 30mm scale tabletop game set in modern or future time.

Now HSD expands the initial miniature line by nearly 4 times. The expansion includes tauric characters, non-morphic animal heroes (called Laterals in HSD), nagas, new arms, casual poses, and more. Thanks to the stretch goals unlocked in the Kickstarter campaign, the line has also introduced nude sculpts for those who are adept at modeling their own armors, and also the possibility to combine genders. With the addition of the expansion, this makes the HSD miniature line the largest anthropomorphic modular miniatures option in the world, and it’s still growing.

All these updates have been possible thanks to all the backers who supported the Kickstarter campaign. The next HSD miniatures expansion will tackle challenges like head hair, new heads, variant body builds and unique enemies from the HSD line that could stand in nicely in other scifi games too.

The Duke’s Stronghold Released by Heroic Maps

June 21, 2017

The Duke’s Stronghold is the newest battle map from Heroic Maps.

Duke Gorham is known throughout the region as a brutal but coldly efficient military commander. After his castle and family home was destroyed in a war, he took his loyal troops and excavated a stronghold in a cliff, ensuring that it was strongly defended. From this position of power, he led sorties that destroyed his enemies and left him the ruler of huge swathes of land. He never returned to his ancestral home though, preferring the claustrophobic corridors where the ancient stone soaks up the screams of his prisoners.

The Duke’s Stronghold is a printable battle map compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone game board, or combine with any same-scale tile set.
Contents: A 30 x 30 map depicting a a fort or stronghold dug into a cliff or cave. The fortress has a strong central entrance, and rooms and quarters for the garrison, including a mess hall, dormitories, officers quarters and kitchens. There is also an extensive area of prison cells and torture rooms. The Duke lives in luxurious rooms, with a banqueting hall, library and solar.

Disciples of Harmony, an all-new sourcebook focused on the Consular career path in the Star Wars: Force and Destiny role playing game, is on sale now in the Fantasy Flight Games online store and your local gaming store.

The rising Galactic Empire and the disbanded Jedi Order have caused Jedi Knights to become the stuff of legend throughout the galaxy, but a select few guard the truth and protect the ways of the Jedi. Players were first introduced to the Consular career in the Star Wars: Force and Destiny Core Rulebook, and Disciples of Harmony expands your options for these galactic peacemakers with new specializations, races, Force powers, and gear. This new sourcebook also includes suggestions and adventure hooks for Game Masters to better incorporate the Consular into a campaign.

In addition to the player character, Disciples of Harmony introduces the idea of the mentor in the form of a Consular NPC: a Yoda, a Qui-Gon, or even a Palpatine who can play a significant role in the past and future of a character.
