Tequendria: Fantastical Roleplaying Available Now

Tequendria

April 23rd, 2017

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.

April 21st, 2017

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.

It didn’t take long for Hobcastle Ruins to get a new set of owners. After it fell in a siege and was abandoned, it wasn’t long before travellers reported campfires burning in the ruins at night, and sound of hammering and construction during the day. It has now become the stronghold of the Ullfrag’uk tribe of orcs.

 Hobcastle Ruins – Orc Fort is a printable battemap from Heroic Maps that is compatible with any RPG game. It can be used as a standalone game board, or combined with any same-scale tile set.
Hobcastle Ruins is a day & night set, comprising of 2 30×30 battlemaps. The daytime map features the ruins of a castle that have been turned into an orc camp. Palisade fences, decorated with skulls, have been built to block the gaps in the wall, and the courtyard is filled with tents, fires and rubbish. The chieftain has taken over the remains of a small hall within the castle, whilst her minions make camp in the open air.  The other version depicts the castle at night, with more torches and braziers lit to prevent sneak attacks.
The pack includes an A4 pdf document with 300dpi gridded versions of each map. Also included is a set of gridded and gridless 300dpi full size jpgs, for poster printing or VTT.
