Heroic Maps Release Rooftops of Ditchbury

June 5, 2018

Rooftops of Ditchbury are available now from Heroic Maps as a printable map for your fantasy RPG settings.

A busy and prosperous city, Ditchbury began life as a small trading village near a river. As the city grew and the river became a canal, it attracted wealthy merchants and traders, but with them came criminals and dangerous people. Those who don’t wish to be seen are adept at using the rooftops to get around, avoiding the streets or using them to find their next target.

Rooftops of Ditchbury is a printable battemap compatible with any RPG game. It can be used as a standalone gameboard, or combined with any same-scale tileset.
Rooftops of Ditchbury is a day & night set, comprising of 2 30×30 battlemaps. The city has a variety of buildings, with churches, warehouses and grander residences alongside houses, and the rooftops pose various obstacles and opportunities – from dormer windows and planks for access, to broken tiles, steep rooftops and lose tiles. At night lamplight spills into the streets, but there are still dark alleys. Ideal for chases, espionage, assasinations, heists and other adventures of intrigue!
The pack includes an A4 pdf document with 300dpi versions of each map. Also included is a set of gridded and gridless 300dpi full size jpgs for poster printing and 72dpi VTT-ready files.

Aerineya: Sky Temple Ruins Available from Heroic Maps

June 3, 2018

Heroic Maps have released Aerineya: Sky Temple Ruins for your fantasy RPG Tabletop.

The Realm of Aerineya was not always so lofty. Elevated to such heights following a great cataclysm, the place is seldom visited, except by those that are able, and willing, to risk such dangers. The ruins of the Sky Temple are an important site, and may even hold the clue to the tragedy that befell Aerineya.

Aerineya: Sky Temple Ruins is a printable battle map compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone game board, or combine with any same-scale tileset.
A 30 x 30 map depicting the overgrown ruins of a Sky Temple, on a cluster of floating islands high in the sky. A distant land and clouds provide a dangerous backdrop to these islands, which still have the crumbling ruins of a once grand temple. Perfect for visiting if you have an airship, or can fly. Otherwise, not so perfect..
Included:
  • A pdf with 300dpi gridded tiles ready for A4 printing
  • A set of 300dpi full size jpeg files, for poster printing
  • A set of 72dpi (140x140px) jpeg for Roll20 & other VTTs

Unlimited Power Brings New Adventure to the Star Wars Force and Destiny RPG

May 23, 2018

The galaxy is filled with people who believe hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, but the Mystic knows better. They can feel the power that lies beneath the surface of every planet, every star, every object in the galaxy. They understand the greatest weapon ever built is no match for the power of the Force.

Unlimited Power is the next sourcebook for the Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game, and it can significantly expand on the role of the Mystic in your campaign.

In addition to three new Mystic specializations, Unlimited Power includes new species, new equipment and weapons, and instructions for how to best integrate a Mystic character or NPC into an adventure.

Unlimited Power also features the tools a Game Master can use to highlight the talents of a Mystic character searching for direction or how to introduce a new Mystic into an existing campaign. The Living Force, crafting via alchemy, and the perils of falling to the dark side are discussed in depth so your player characters can live up to their full potential and discover the truly unlimited power that flows through them when they become an ally to the Force.

You can pre-order your copy of Unlimited Power at your local retailer or from Fantasy Flight Games.

Modiphius Releases Space 1889: Mercury Sourcebook

May 12, 2018

The alien and fascinating world of Mercury awaits you  with Space 1889: Mercury released by Modiphius.

Once, no man on Earth thought that life on Mercury was possible since the planet is locked with one side perpetually facing the Sun. Scorching heat on one side and eternal darkness on the other seemed to guarantee that Mercury must be uninhabitable. But when the inhabitants of Earth first started to voyage through the Ether, some daring explorers also turned towards Mercury—and discovered how wrong the previous assumptions about the planet had been.

Because even if the one side of Mercury is dominated by vast hot deserts with lakes filled with molten metals and the other side is a seemingly lifeless waste with its giant glaciers of ice and ammonia, there is still a small strip of land between these two extremes that thrives with life. This zone where the cold and hot sides meet always stays in the same twilight and at the same temperature—this is the realm of the mighty World River, which spans the whole planet and is a lifeline for the primeval fauna and flora on both river banks.

While the few human settlements and bases were all established along the World River, the main focus of the great powers and trading com­panies remains on the hostile areas of Mercury—because that is where the true riches of the innermost planet of the Solar System lie. Lakes of molten metal await their exploitation on the Hot Side, if only there were a way to mine them. Frozen gases on the Dark Side also promise great profits, despite all risks to life and limb. It is no wonder then that it’s not just scientists that come to Mercury, but also salesmen and prospectors, just as some inventors try to construct machines that would function in environ­ments more life-threatening and hostile than anything known on Earth.

This supplement describes everything you need to know to have thrilling adventures on Mercury. Detailed descriptions of the three very different regions, infor­mation on inhabitants and visitors of Mercury, inter­esting locations, or alien (and not always animal) life—this sourcebook offers you a comprehensive survey of the planet.

To help you dive into this exciting world more easily, this book also includes an adventure concerning a race along the World River which lets you and your players explore large parts of Mercury during its course.

 

White Wolf Launch Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition

May 3, 2018

White Wolf Entertainment and distributor Modiphius are sinking their fangs into the celebrations with the official launch of pre-orders for Vampire: The Masquerade Fifth Edition! V5 boldly moves this undying roleplaying series into the 21st century.

Vampire: The Masquerade V5 features a new set of modern rules and continues the dark and sexy tale started with the original 1991 Vampire: The Masquerade. Rooted in the exploration of evil and morality, the Vampire series challenges players to confront or channel their inner monster and exploit the weaknesses of society to satiate their own hunger for power — and thirst for blood. This new edition honors the deep, enthralling lore of the original while advancing the metaplot from where it last left off and redesigns the rules for a new era.

The long-anticipated V5 launch will feature three main full-color hardback books, starting with the V5 corebook shipping in August. The Anarch and Camarilla source books will release later this Fall. Pre-order options include a high-quality slipcase, a Collector’s Edition of the corebook and bundles including the V5 dice set, V5 storyteller screen and V5 notebook.
