News & Stuff

I've been really behind on my RPG news updates, so going to throw a bunch into one big update . . . .




Fantasy Flight games announced Allies and Adversaries for the Genesys-system based Star Wars RPG. The book collects profiles and stat blocks for major characters throughout all eras of the Star Wars fiction, which makes this a great accessory for any of the Star Wars games. Over 130 NPCs are profiled in the book, including Emperor Palpatine, Boba Fett, Jyn Erso, Wicket, and more. The book goes beyond simple stat blocks and gives gamemasters full backgrounds, motivations, tips, and everything else needed to utilize these characters to their fullest potential. The book will be available in the second quarter of 2019 with a retail price of $39.95.

Which is kind of timely, as I've been considering covering the Genesys version of the rules on the site, but if they're publishing stuff like this, then there's no need.




Fantasy Flight games announced A new Dungeons & Dragons starter set was announced at the New York Toy Fair, a licensed tie-in with the Netflix television show Stranger Things. The set has similar features to the existing Starter Set (a set of polyhedral dice, streamlined D&D 5e rules for playing Levels 1-5, etc.), though this version will include two figures of the Demogorgon featured in the show, pre-generated characters based on the ones in Mike’s game, and an adventure “Hunt for the Thessalhydra” also written by Mike. What’s interesting about this box set in particular is that the publisher isn’t Wizards of the Coast, but Hasbro Gaming (though the Wizards logo is on the box). The set is available for pre-order now with a retail price of $24.99 and a release date of May 1, 2019, putting it on store shelves a couple months before the July 4, 2019, release of the third season of Stranger Things on Netflix.




Someone created the NASA Mars Rover Opportunity for D&D with is nice, but annoying they couldn't fit in the iconic "My battery is low and it's getting dark".




This the kind of stupid thing I spend time on, although I wish it was a random generator just to click on. The Royal Name Generator. Mine is "The Serene Viscount of ???, The Conqueror, Reaper of the 4 Seas. Which sounds as ridiculous as any real one.




Modiphius will develop and publish two tabletop RPG titles: the first expanding on the narrative wargame experience of Fallout: Wasteland Warfare, their licensed tabletop miniatures game, while a second more traditional tabletop RPG will follow using the company’s 2d20 System.

It'll be interesting to see how they utilise Special (Strength, Perception, Endurance, Charisma, Intelligence, Agility and Luck) in it, because if they don't, it's not worth publishing. Seems odd that a game based on GURPS, will now be published under a different set of rules.




RPG Encounters is a free web app designed to work with and sync between all your devices. It's kind of what we're trying to do with BeyondD6, so definitely worth a look.
