Pirate Campaign Compendium (Pathfinder)

RPGNow - Fri, 05/25/2018 - 07:19
Pirate Campaign Compendium (Pathfinder)Publisher: Legendary Games

Set Sail for Adventure!

 

From the jeweled islands of the tropics to the ice-choked polar seas and everywhere across the bottomless briny blue, the Pirate Campaign Compendium from Legendary Games offers over 500 pages of amazing expansions for any nautical campaign. This beautiful book is perfect for embarking on an epic journey of exploration, a harrowing journey to a far-distant land, or a full-on pirate campaign of plunder and pillage! The oceans offer infinite possibilities for adventure beyond the horizon or beneath the waves, and it is small wonder that nearly every coastal culture has tales of golden voyages in search of fortune and glory, daring the mystery that reaches off the edge of the map to the place where all that anyone knows is Here There Be Monsters!

 

The Pirate Campaign Compendium brings you an incredible collection of rules for nautical characters of every kind, with nearly 70 archetypes, class features, feats, and traits, from the pearl knight paladin and privateer ranger to the sargasso siren kineticist and boarder cavalier, plus feats like Eel Strike, Hoist the Colors, Naval Commander, and Cetacean Smash! Maritime magic is here in plenty as well, with nearly 50 spells and almost 60 magic items drawn from traditional Caribbean pirate lore but also from the distant corners of the fantasy world, from Arabia to the Arctic, to the Far East and South Pacific! Pair your captain’s cutlass with a cannonball breastplate or unleash a marid’s curse in your aba of fair winds, with treasures and enchantments enough to delight the scurviest seadog that ever followed a treasure map!

 

You’ll find challenges aplenty within these pages with five complete pirate adventures for characters from 4th to 14th level! Plus, you can enhance your own aquatic adventures with over 40 savage sea monsters from CR 1 to CR 25, with friendly merfolk and seaweed leshies to the star-spawn of Cthluhu! Nautical campaigns have more than monsters, of course, and you’ll also find a spectacular assortment of cutthroats and crew for every level. Over 80 incredible NPC stat blocks include common pirates and officers of the line, as well as richly detailed and evocative heroes and villains ideal as recurring characters and playable pirate PCs!

 

In addition to traditional adventuring, the Pirate Campaign Compendium contains incredible resources for running a pirate-themed campaign, with simple and advanced ship-to-ship combat rules, a dynamic and exciting fleet battle system for running major naval engagements, and modular rules for shipbuilding and special modifications, so you can be as detailed as you like. You’ll also find tons of bonus material for navigation and storms at sea, fame and infamy, aquatic and underwater terrain, a complete plunder system, and all manner of nautical details like shipboard roles, punishments, grog, seasickness, sea shanties, a pirate glossary, and even peg legs and eyepatches!

 

The Pirate Campaign Compendium is your indispensable resource for any Pathfinder Roleplaying Game campaign that charts a course for adventure on the open sea! Grab this book and your compass and sextant; it’s time to leave the shore behind and Make Your Game Legendary!

Spreading Hope

Fantasy Flight Games - Fri, 05/25/2018 - 04:29
Published 24 May 2018 | Star Wars: Legion Spreading Hope

Two Rebel Alliance Expansions for Star Wars: Legion Are Available Now

    

"We have no time for sorrows, Commander."
   –Leia Organa, Star Wars: A New Hope

The Rebel Alliance is accustomed to being on the defensive on almost every front of the Galactic Civil War. In terms of pure numbers, they are no match for the vast legions of the Galactic Empire. Fortunately, help has arrived that should tip the scales in the Rebellion’s favor.

Order your own copy of these expansions at your local retailer or online through our website today!

The Leia Organa Commander Expansion and the Fleet Troopers Unit Expansion for Star Wars™: Legion are available now from your local retailer or online through our website. Fill out your Rebel forces and spark hope across the galaxy today!

An Inspiring Presence

Despite the long odds they face, the Rebellion does have a few advantages over the Empire. One of them is their cadre of leaders who inspire their troops to perform to the best of their abilities and no one is better at this than Leia Organa. While she may not be adept with a lightsaber like fellow Rebel commander Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa brings her own brand of leadership to the battlefields of Star Wars: Legion.

A former Imperial Senator, Leia Organa knows how lead people and she retains all of these abilities even in the heat of pitched battle. The Leia Organa Commander Expansion invites you to make the most of these skills. In addition to a beautifully detailed Leia Organa miniature, this expansion also features her three signature command cards that highlight her ability to get the best out of the troops under her command. You’ll also find three upgrade cards in this expansion that can be used to further customize Leia Organa or another unit in your army.

As the Rebel Alliance’s second commander, Leia Organa gives you more options when filling out your ranks. At only 90 points, you can easily slot her into your army alongside Luke Skywalker and still have plenty of points left over for other units. But on the other hand, Leia Organa might work better on her own, with the points that you save by removing Luke from your army being used to surround Leia with even more troops. 

Luke’s combat prowess might be missed, but Leia Organa can help keep these extra soldiers in the fight by granting them additional dodge tokens thanks to her Take Cover 2 ability while also removing their suppression tokens with her inspiring presence.

For a full preview of the Leia Organa Commander Expansion, including an in-depth look at her command cards, click here!

Protecting the Fleet

Rebel troops are prepared to defend freedom on almost any world, and even on the ships that fly between them. One such unit is available to you with the Fleet Troopers Unit Expansion. With seven unpainted, easily assembled Fleet Trooper miniatures and all the cards and tokens you need to integrate a unit of Fleet Troopers into your army, you have a new option for filling out the corps of your army.

Accustomed to fighting in the tight confines of naval starships, the Fleet Troopers work best up close to the enemy. Their DH-17 blaster pistols have a shorter range than other Rebel infantry units, but they do allow each miniature in the unit to contribute two white dice to every attack. At just 44 points, this added firepower is only marginally more expensive than a unit of Rebel Troopers and adding another Fleet Trooper $(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 309, innerWidth: 200 }; $('#15586').colorbox(opts); }); mini can make the Fleet Troopers even more potent.

In addition to the standard Fleet Trooper, your unit can be further enhanced by troopers carry a variety of heavy weapons. An MPL-57 Barrage Trooper, $(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 309, innerWidth: 200 }; $('#962D').colorbox(opts); });  for example, has a bit more range and is an ideal choice for attacking enemy vehicles or infantry hunkering behind cover. Alternatively, the Scatter Gun Trooper $(document).ready(function() { var opts = { iframe: true, innerHeight: 309, innerWidth: 200 }; $('#7B15').colorbox(opts); }); shares the Fleet Troopers’ affinity for close-quarters combat, but adds even more lethality with the two red dice it contributes to the attack pool.

No matter how you choose to deploy your Fleet Troopers, they are excellent at holding their position and daring the enemy to move on them. Their Ready 1 grants them an aim token after they perform a standby action, putting them in perfect position to launch a counterattack if an enemy unit moves too close.

Be the Spark

The Rebel Alliance may be outnumbered, but they are resilient. Recruit new troops to push back against the weight of the Empire with these two expansions for Star Wars: Legion! 

Inspire rebellion with the Leia Organa Commander Expansion (SWL12) and the Fleet Troopers Unit Expansion (SWL13) for Star Wars: Legion, available now from your local retailer or our website!

THE DEVIL’S SAND BOX - D&D 5e & Pathfinder

RPGNow - Fri, 05/25/2018 - 03:40
THE DEVIL’S SAND BOX - D&D 5e & PathfinderPublisher: DARK BY DEZIGN

THE DEVIL’S SAND BOX - D&D 5e & Pathfinder

THE DEVIL’S SAND BOX is the first completed short adventure for the ongoing project:
THE BOOK OF DARK SECRETS, which is still active on IGG under:

THE BOOK OF DARK SECRETS D&D5e & Pathfinder

This is a 17 page (actual content, not including credits + covers) short adventure that is in the book THE BOOK OF DARK SECRETS. This book is on its way to become a 240+ page book that will be available in digital PDF, SOFTCOVER and HARDCOVER formats. THE LOST TOMES Volume 1 is another book in this project and there will be a sample adventure coming out for that as well very soon.

The idea behind this project is to have a resource of 36 short adventures ranging from 5 pages to 17+ that are dual-statted for both D&D 5e and Pathfinder. All 36 adventures can also be enjoyed by player levels 1-20. This is done through a simple shortened, 4-tier, color-coded stat block system using very similar monsters that exist in both RPG worlds. Nothing magic, just a slightly different idea….

If you are Uber-retentive, that is cool, and I can respect that, but this might not be for you. IF, however, you are truly open to a new concept withOUT preconceived notions, I am sure that you will find this book/books to be fun, memorable and have a long service life, even after Pathfinder comes out with a new version. I have had some really great personal responses and encouraging remarks and enthusiasm generated from many of the 198 + 9 supporters! I think if you give this a chance, you might very well find yourself AND YOUR PLAYERS enjoying it. Again, this entire project is still active after a successfully-funded KS campaign, but is now on IGG, which you can find under this name.

 Sky Temple RuinsPublisher: Heroic Maps

Aerineya: Sky Temple Ruins

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.

  A printable battlemap 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 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..

A pdf with 300dpi gridded tiles ready for A4 printing

Torg Eternity Using Fudge/Fate Dice

Torg Eternity Using Fudge/Fate DicePublisher: Ulisses Spiele

Not with the intention of plugging my own work but you might have purchased the Alternative Dice Systems that I wrote for Torg Eternity, I am still searching for that sweet spot that provides the simplest gaming experience without losing the feel of Torg and that allows you to pick up and play all the great stuff from Torg Eternity. I don’t want the game mechanics to break player immersion in the game if I can help it.


With that goal still in mind, I have another variation that you might like. In the Positive and Negative Descriptors booklet, I suggested ways of using something very like Fate Aspects in Torg Eternity and that led me to looking at whether Fudge/Fate dice could fit into Torg at my table. As it turned out, they fit quite elegantly.

So get out your 4DF and roll some bones with me!

Arcane Theory

RPGNow - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 19:35
Arcane TheoryPublisher: Dancing Lights Press
Characters, Worldbuilding, and Adventures

Arcane magic is a foundational element of tabletop fantasy. Whether you’re drawing upon the concepts of Vancian magic as interpreted by Gygax and Arneson, or embracing pseudo-historical tradition of Hermeticism, the ability to manipulate supernatural energy and cast spells is an important part of the genre. With no arcane magic we’d have no wizards, no enchanted arms and armor, and no magic items.

Sure, there might still be divine magic to make those things possible, that implies a whole different set of worldbuilding elements. Divine magic requires supernatural beings and deities willing to share their power in exchange for worship, sacrifices, and some degree of proselytizing. Arcane magic represents the ability of mortal beings to claim that power for themselves, and use it for their own purposes. It’s not merely a form of science and technology. It’s a form of agency.

Because the arcane is so essential to tabletop fantasy, we often take it for granted. It’s just there, like fresh aid and sunshine on a summer day. We don’t spend enough time thinking about why it’s there, who uses it, and how it has shaped the setting. This book will dive into ways that you can use arcane magic for character development, worldbuilding efforts, and adventure design. Hopefully you’ll come out of it with a greater appreciation of this ever-present force in your fantasy universe, and new ways to utilize it to make your campaign stand out.

Because the Foragers Guild Guide supplements are system-agnostic, this volume will delve more into the perceptions and archetypal racial capabilities of the arcane rather than their specific abilities. In places, some broad generalizations will be made. You should adapt the concepts to what best fits the mechanics, setting, and character that you’re working with inside the context of your campaign.

Helheim Unbound: Core Rulebook Sample

RPGNow - Thu, 05/24/2018 - 17:32
 Core Rulebook SamplePublisher: Skylark Studios

NOTE: This is a free sample of the first 2 chapters of the Core Rulebook.

Helheim Unbound is a roleplaying game designed with quick resolutions and narrative play in mind.  We have created a framework that translates a player's vision for a character into a playable champion. The end result is a system that allows a group to play in a matter of minutes, with minimal complexities to tie down the narrative.

Helheim Unbound can be used as a generic system for practically any setting, but included is an example setting at the dawn of the Viking Age. Whether players embark on daring raids with the Vikings or enlist with King Charles on his crusade to spread the boundaries of Christendom, there is a world filled with conflict and adventure.

WHAT'S INSIDE:

  • Introduction: The Basics.  A little bit of background, what you need to play, and player roles.

  • Chapter 1: Core Rules.  The Core Rules cover everything from dice mechanics, how actions work, how your champion is developed, wealth, and a quick guide to magic.

  • Chapter 2: Champion Creation.  All about how you create your champion, including their desires, skills, benefits and hindrances, starting resources, and how to measure success when the champion dies or retires.
  • Chapter 3: The Gamemaster.  Tips and tricks for Gamemasters, including when to test and setting test difficulties, how to create creatures, and guidance on managing a rules-lite system like Helheim Unbound.

  • Chapter 4: Examples.  Norse / Dark Age themed examples to help inspire players, including all aspects of champion creation, ideas for encounters, and sample creatures for the champions to face.  We also have included some examples for other settings as well!

  • Chapter 5: Magic.  Magic was the number one area our playtesters wanted more information on, so we dedicated a chapter to it!  We include a framework for creating your own magic system, as well as two complete magic systems:  One based on the 18 Runes from the Havamal and 18 Miracles from the Bible.
