Drabin City Sewars Released by Heroic Maps

232295

Jan 26, 2018

The sewers beneath a city may seem to be places that would be avoided, but to the citizens of the city that appreciate the value of such environments the sewer is perfect. What better way to avoid the authorities than by operating beneath their feet?

 Drabin City Sewars is a printable battlemap from Heroic Maps that is compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset.
Contents: A 30 x 30 map depicting the sewer system beneath a city. Sewer tunnels and channels criss-cross the area, linked to the surface by ladders and gratings. The sewer passes near cellars, basements, and hideouts, and even cuts through the crypt of an old church. In fact, the sewer has passed dangerously close to some ancient catacombs, making the living dead at risk of being disturbed.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce Realms of Terrinoth, a new sourcebook for the Genesys Roleplaying System!

Terrinoth is a land of forgotten greatness and lost legacies. Once ruled by the Elder Kings who called upon mighty magics to perform great deeds and work marvels, the land has suffered greatly at the hands of its three great foes: the undead armies of Waiqar the Betrayer, the demon-possessed hordes of the bloodthirsty Uthuk Y’llan, and the terrifying dragons of the Molten Heath. Many of its great cities have been cast down into ruins, and many wondrous secrets and powerful artifacts have been lost.

For hundreds of years, Terrinoth slipped into gloom and decay. But heroes arise just when their lands need them the most. Courageous adventurers brave the ruins of past ages and the foul creatures within to uncover the treasures of their ancestors. The Daqan Barons, inheritors of the ancient kingdoms, rebuild their walls and muster their armies, while the wizards of Greyhaven gather runes of power to awaken guardians of stone and steel. These preparations come none too soon, for the ancient enemies of the lawful races are stirring again, and Terrinoth needs champions of courage and cunning to stand against the rising darkness.

Realms of Terrinoth explores the world of Mennara featured in Runewars Miniatures GameLegacy of DragonholtDescent: Journeys in the Dark, and Runebound. As a fantasy campaign setting for your games of GenesysRealms of Terrinoth also features many races, weapons, gear, careers, and more—all of which can be found in the world of Terrinoth and expanded to any fantasy setting you create as the Game Master.

Fantasy Flight Games Announces Dawn of the Rebellion Sourcebook for Star Wars RPG’s

Jan 10, 2018

Dawn of Rebellion, the first ever sourcebook of its kind, brings you to the era of the Galactic Civil War before the events of Rogue One™ and A New Hope, focusing on the tension, strife, and fear encouraged by the Galactic Empire at the height of its power. This is an era where despair is prevalent and the future dark, except for a few unique individuals who carry hope like a torch against the darkness, a torch that would become the spark that ultimately lights the flames of rebellion, war, and freedom.

This book provides players with a wealth of new equipment, specializations, and races to paint this vibrant and dangerous galaxy in stark and stunning detail. But where Dawn of Rebellion truly shines as an era sourcebook is in its service of setting the stage for encounters, sessions, and entire campaigns in a time when the Empire is at its strongest. That is not to mean every campaign that makes use of this book will have the fall of the Emperor as its goal; instead, we can see how Star Wars™: Edge of the EmpireStar Wars™: Age of Rebellion, and Star Wars™: Force and Destiny might approach the same story element from unique angles, and how Game Masters can present these angles to their players.

Corporation Core Rules Offered for FREE from Brutal Games

Corporation-768x1068

Jan 2, 2018

Brutal Games have decided to make the Corporation Core Rules FREE! Now nobody has an excuse not to immerse themselves in brutal, cinematic cyberpunky goodness.

There will come a time when the nations of the world will cease to exist. When the anachronisms of state and country are finally crushed by the inexorable juggernaut of total corporate domination. When five monolithic Corporations are the new world powers. When the lives of billions are the sole property of the companies that employ them.

There will come a time when the tools of war and politics alike are not armies or diplomats but Agents: the eyes, the hands, and sometimes the knives of the Corporations, individuals elevated to new peaks of physical and mental potential by unthinkable training and unimaginable technologies.

There will come a time when you will be recruited as an Agent, ordered to operate outside any remaining semblance of law and augmented beyond what you once considered human. When you will negotiate, bargain, spy, sabotage, kill and perhaps die in the service of your Corporation – and when you will be well rewarded, as long as you survive.

The time is 2500 AD, and it is now.
