May 27, 2018: Illuminated Site of the Week: The Best Offense Is A Psychic Defense

Steve Jackson Games - 3 hours 6 min ago
 Popular opinion has it when he died, Nicola Tesla was sitting on plans for a death ray. These were subsequently picked up when his hotel room was raided by secret government forces. MuckRock claims it was even worse than this, though. According to Tom Bearden – you may recall he champions the existence and use of free energy from "the vacuum" – not only did the Russians gain control of some of Tesla's offensive secrets, they had the best defense against them: Tesla shield technology. The famed engineer's energy howitzers could knock our missiles out of the sky, but any that got through would simply impact on the force field surrounding the offending silos and cities. And these cannons weren't limited to hitting us with electricity – they could also throw time at us. Yes, actual time, used as a payload to age or obliterate whatever it hit.

How do we all know this? Through the CIA's psychic research project, of course. This is one page that just keeps giving.

Races of Obsidian Apocalypse (5E)Publisher: LPJ Design

A dark star fell from the sky bringing with it the end of all things! The sanctity of the world known as Abaddon was shattered when a global apocalyptic event of a meteor impacting the planet causing a destructive ecological and eldritch change. Now there is no day or night, just never ending Apocalypse.  Races of Obsidian Apocalypse: Flesh and Iron adds four new races to the Obsidian Apocalypse campaign setting making the world even more interesting and just as dangerous. Are you willing to take up the fight?

Inside this book you will find you will find updates to the standard races (Dwarves, Elves, Gnomes, Halflings, and Humans), in addition, seven all-new races for Races of Obsidian Apocalypse include:

  • Exalted: The exalted are the direct offspring of angelic outsiders mated with the humans of Abaddon.

  • Genesai: Genesai are the result of demonic outsiders mating with angelic outsiders, defying all that both sides of the eternal conflict between good and evil consider inviolate.

  • Harrowed: The harrowed are one of the most despised and feared races of Abaddon. They are no less than the result of the unholy and abominable union between mortal humanoids and the foul undead.

  • Infernal: Infernals are the offspring of demonic outsiders and humanity upon Abaddon or the result of a tainted bloodline throwing up a child bearing the mark of past transgressions of natural law.

  • Khymer: The khymer are a people reduced to a pool of alien blood. They have been infused with powerful psionic energy, but depend upon corpses as vessels to travel in. Without host corpses, they are vulnerable, exposed to extremes of heat and cold and unable to hold weapons or wear armor.

  • Lykian: Abaddon’s werewolf lycanthropes, most commonly called lykians, are one of the most unusual residents of the world. Unlike standard lycanthropes, lykians are born as lycanthropes.

  • Osirian: According to ancient lore, the osirians were the first intelligent species to emerge on Abaddon, chosen by the gods to be their first creation on this world.

 City of Glasya-LabolasPublisher: Spellbook Games

Spellbook Games announces the release of Inferno: City of Glasya-Labolas, a title in the Inferno line of adventure products. City of Glasya-Labolas describes in detail an evil city on the edge of the continent of Gehenna on the Plane of Devils, between the Apophis Mountains and the endless Orobus Marsh. It is the city of the Telchine Devils, supreme craftsmen and crafters of enchanted items. Devils share part of the city with mortals, which is described in detail. The adventure also describes areas around the city, from a nearby village to several islands located out in the marsh.


City of Glasya-Labolas is a sandbox for high level Adventurers, particularly neutral and evil persons, although it pleases the Devils to tolerate a few good persons. Information is provided on most aspects of interacting with the city while providing Games Masters many opportunities to customize and adapt the city for their campaign. The mortal-occupied areas of the city are divided into neighborhoods, each with a described Boss, local map, lists of prominent locations, and lists of prominent persons who may be encountered. Many persons are mentioned but few described, to maximize flexibility for the Games Master.


City of Glasya-Labolas uses the Portal to Adventures RPG rules, but can easily be used by Games Masters using OD&D, 1E and 2E Dungeons and Dragons rules, and any similar rule sets.  Games Masters using 3E and later rules, or any similar rule set, may have additional work.  Games Masters should also refer to Diabolic Denizens by Spellbook Games (free download).  The following may also be useful: Gehenna Primer, Inferno: Journey through Malebolge, Inferno: Bestiary.  Glasya-Labolas consists of a two-book bundle, the city description and a companion volume with statistics and information on * denizens found in the city. Adventure 157 pages, Denizens 47 pages.

This is the Adventure module ONLY, and does not include the companion Denizens book.

May 26, 2018: Munchkin Collectible Card Game Starters Back In The Warehouse!

Steve Jackson Games - 15 hours 7 min ago
Munchkin CCG When we launched the Munchkin Collectible Card Game earlier this year, we were painfully short on the game's three Starter Sets, leaving some of our larger distributors without any games for retailers. While the game's starters never quite reached "impossible to find" status over the last quarter, there were more friendly local game stores without access to the starters than we were expecting. Fortunately, we can now report that the reprint of all three sets has arrived and we've started shipping the games to our distributors.

There is one significant difference between this latest wave and the game's first printing. As we mentioned back in February, the first-printing starters included a bonus Munchkin Collectible Card Game booster pack. This latest printing, however, does not include that bonus. Those of you who can find the first printing – look for the seal on the front of the box stating there's a booster inside – will want to buy one to take advantage of the extra value that we packed into the first run.

The starters are back in the warehouse just in time for the release of the game's first expansion, The Desolation of Blarg, which is set to reach stores later this month. You can get a look at the upcoming expansion in this Facebook Live video, where Rhea pops open a few packs and shows off some of the expansion cards.

Fortified Trading Post Map Set

By Rob Lusk (Jade Tower Studio)

The fortified trading post map set consists of a two-dimensional, top-down map of four buildings surrounded by a log palisade with a walkway. It can be used with 28mm figures in fantasy, late medieval, or early American frontier roleplaying or miniatures games. A weapons shop with blacksmith, fur trader & leather worker, dry goods shop, & bunkhouse are included. The map can be printed on six 8.5 by 11-inch (U.S. standard) pieces of paper (cardstock is recommended), or as a 24" by 24" complete map with a grass border. The buildings contain detailed interiors and can greatly increase the atmosphere of your game when your characters go shopping or want to make some trades.

In our experience, the 24" by 24" maps allow for easy use in the middle of a typical gaming table. Both ungridded and one-inch gridded versions of the complete maps are provided, as well as a version with empty buildings if you want to use your own furniture. All of these can be printed as 24" by 24" JPGs, & are suitable for use with VTTs.

A PDF is included with a labeled version of the map for easy reference; a description of each business and its owner(s) (generic, for easy use with different game systems); three adventure seeds; and advice on printing the maps.

Map Credits: Some of the images are by DarkByDezign & Avalon Games (used with permission).
