Character Folio - ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG

RPGNow - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 18:16
Character Folio - ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPGPublisher: Grim & Perilous Studios

Record your Character's grim & perilous tale using the official Character Folio for ZWEIHÄNDER Grim & Perilous RPG!

Beautifully illustrated by Dejan Mandic and gloriously lain out by Ken Duquet, this adventuring journal not only allows you to catalogue the exploits - and eventual death - of your Character, but also collects commonly-referenced tables you'll need as you play the game.

The Character Folio comes in at a relatively inexpensive price point for print-on-demand, so you can have a folio for every Character you play. Or, purchase one POD, remove the binding and photocopy it for your fellow players. If that doesn't suit your fancy, simply purchase the PDF alone and print out as many as needed. Best of all - the PDF is form-fillable for use with Roll20, Twitch gaming and other online mediums as you play ZWEIHÄNDER virtually with others around the world!

We also future-proofed the Character Folio by including all manner of awesomeness from our second hardback coming later this year - MAIN GAUCHE!

The 20-page Character Folio includes the following:

  • Page 1: a beautiful cover, illustrated by Jussi Alarauhio
  • Page 2: a literal gallery of villains, serfs and contrarians who contributed to both ZWEIHÄNDER and the Character Folio
  • Page 3: a helpful table of contents of the most commonly-referenced rules in ZWEIHÄNDER
  • Pages 4 to 5: a role-playing aid that breaks down all the helpful details about your Character
  • Pages 6 to 7: all the damn dirty details of your Character in mechanical format
  • Page 8: all the lucre and goods you've bought, lost and stolen during your adventures
  • Page 9: a place to record all your Magick spells
  • Pages 10 to 11: a place to record the people you've met (or killed), places you've been (or raided) and things you've stumbled across
  • Pages 12 to 14: every weapon, armor, shield and related Qualities found in both ZWEIHÄNDER and the upcoming MAIN GAUCHE supplement!
  • Page 15: a quick reference guide - and official sneak peak - at Vehicle Combat, an all-new subsystem meant to plug into normal combat found in MAIN GAUCHE!
  • Page 16: a combat reference guide for every Action In Combat, Condition Effect and Cone/Burst/Explosion Templates
  • Page 17: a quick guide to Fortune Points, Fate Points, casting Magick, Channeling Power and room to record Houserules
  • Pages 18 to 19: a place to record notes about your adventures that won't fit on the other pages
  • Page 20: a death certificate - a living record of how your Character perished during their grim & perilous adventures.

Grab your official ZWEIHÄNDER Character Folio today, and prepare yourself for a world of grim & perilous adventure!

Interview With An Artist: Cursed Court's Lee Moyer

Atlas Games - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 17:00
Ozma of Oz by John NeillDistinctive art and design are a major factor in a person's choice to pick a game off the shelf. Artist Lee Moyer created the compelling look of Atlas board game Cursed Court, so I talked with him about his choices and inspirations.

There's a lot of Art Nouveau influence on your Cursed Court art. Why did you choose that style?

"Art Nouveau combines richness and theatricality in a clear recognizable style. I grew up admiring John R. Neill's illustrations of the Royal Court of Oz, but it's the poster work of Alphonse Mucha that best defines the style."

Mucha poster
for LorenzaccioThe costumes don't conform to any one time period, but they each suit the character very well. How did you decide to focus on the look rather than historical accuracy of some kind?
Character image: The Merchant
"I think we ascribe a conformity to European courts and cultures that is drastically oversimplified. My goal with this court was to create characters that were archetypal, not specifically historical. This allowed me greater latitude than 'simple' Elizabethan or Venetian fashion. In this case, the Duke's costume is based on a real courtier (though radically different in color); the Jester is wearing motley that was sewn for me many years ago by the brilliant Yvonne Parham (though much toned-down); the Merchant's clothes come straight from a Mucha magazine cover. The rest are pretty much made up from whole cloth."

You feature a diverse group of races, ages, genders, and ability among your characters. Was that important to you?

"Absolutely. Games have a huge and diverse audience, and representation is crucial. And while this group of characters may seem atypical to some, history offers far more unusual examples, like Poland's female King Jadwiga and Pocahontas in London."
Period depiction of Pocahontas at the English Court

Do you have a favorite character? Do you bet on them more often when you play?

"So many of the models I chose for this game are friends. So asking me about favorites is asking whether I prefer Della over Baize, Kira over John, or Jay over Saamanta. I just love seeing them when I play, and imagining how they'll strike people I'll never meet."

Shadowrun: Im Herz der Dunkelheit

 Im Herz der DunkelheitPublisher: Pegasus Press

Ein Schrei in der Nacht!


Hast du den Schrei gehört? Es ist wichtig, dass du dich an ihn erinnerst. Manchmal hörst du etwas dort draußen, in den Straßen, das du nicht identifizieren kannst. Du denkst, es wäre etwas anderes, du redest es schön, du ergibst dich der Illusion einer heilen Welt.

Aber in Wahrheit ist es der Schrei des blanken Terrors. Denn hinter der Fassade der Schatten lauern noch schwärzere Schrecken, als du dir vorstellen kannst. Insektengeister infiltrieren Megakonzerne. Shedim lassen Tote auferstehen und nutzen die Metamenschheit für ihre finsteren Zwecke. In den hintersten Winkeln des Astralraums und der Matrix lauern Kreaturen, die du dir nicht vorstellen solltest. Sonst zerfrisst dich der Wahnsinn.

Im Herz der Dunkelheit ist ein Katalog der versteckten Schrecken der Sechsten Welt. Es präsentiert grausige Geheimnisse, Plot-Updates, Critter-Werte und Kampagnenhintergründe für Shadowrun 5. Für den Spieltisch bietet es Informationen für den Kampf mit dunkelsten Mächten – doch aufgepasst: Der Schrei, den du hörst, könnte bald dein eigener sein.

Die Print Version könnt ihr hier im Pegasus Shop bestellen.

March 15, 2018: Dr. Stephen Hawking

Steve Jackson Games - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 13:09
Dr. Stephen Hawking has died.

It seems impossible that anyone reading this might not know who Dr. Hawking is and what he has meant to the world of science over the last half century. The number and scope of his discoveries cannot adequately be summarized in this space, but his work revolutionized the fields of cosmology and astrophysics, among others. Dr. Hawking was also a highly skilled writer and spokesperson; A Brief History of Time is still considered a classic book about science, making highly abstruse concepts accessible, even entertaining. Dr. Hawking also has the rare distinction of portraying himself on an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Perhaps most astonishingly, he did all this while enduring the extreme degeneration caused by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also called motor neuron disease. Dr. Hawking was diagnosed with ALS at age 21 and given two years to live. We're fortunate that this diagnosis was so very wrong. Stephen Hawking died Wednesday at age 76.

Return to the Stars! quickstart edition

RPGNow - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 12:42
Return to the Stars! quickstart editionPublisher: Festive Ninja

In dark times, games can fill us with joy and hope.

Return to the Stars, a tabletop science fiction role playing game, helps players create their own stories in an optimistic space opera setting.

Return to the Stars is designed to allow the creation of characters that evoke the best elements of geek culture. In the far future hyperspace travel gave easy access to countless worlds, and humanity sorted itself into like-minded communities.  One such society was the Convention Authority, founded to celebrate the now classical arts of science fiction, fantasy, and gaming.

One day, without warning, the stellar beacon that illuminated hyperspace went silent rendering galactic travel impossible. The systems of the Convention Authority stayed connected thanks to a replica fleet of early starships. Now, after more than a century of effort, a long-range exploration craft has been built. Its purpose: to return to the stars and reconnect with lost civilizations of humanity.

The characters of Return to the Stars are a new generation of geeks — makers, cosplayers, scientists, and pop culture enthusiasts setting out on an adventure of exploration and discovery. A complete introductory scenario, Bringing Fire, is included.

If you enjoy tales filled with optimism and hope, where players can paint a better future in bold primary colors, then you should prepare to Return to the Stars!

These creatures are the merest shadow of the Outer Dark’s denizens and give a glimpse at what those beings may resemble. The truth is, of course, far, far worse.

Some learned sages dedicate themselves to understanding the Outer Dark, hoping to be able to track the places where beings from beyond draw close - and watch them.

Fists and .45s!

RPGNow - Thu, 03/15/2018 - 12:10
Fists and .45s!Publisher: Paper Dragon Productions

Before there were Comic books there were the Pulps. Before Batman, Superman, and Captain America, there was Doc Savage, The Shadow, and Tarzan. Pulps in the literal sense are not a genre, but derived their moniker from the cheap “pulpy” paper the stories were printed upon. The stories found on those pages ranged from Sci-Fi and Fantasy to Mysteries, Romance and Westerns.

Over time, the term “Pulp Adventure” has evolved and narrowed its focus to the time between the great wars while still bearing the markings of the spectacular stories of the pulps, often where larger than life heroes would set forth to stop the sinister plot of a diabolic and mysterious villain in some exotic location.

Everything needed for those kind of adventures is located on the pages of Fists & .45s! just add dice!

Das Begräbnis einer alten Kameradin führt die Helden zurück in die Eisenlande, wo sie auf finsteres Hexenwerk, einen Spazierstock stoßen und das Geheimnis um die Die -Caliberi Briefe lüften müssen.

Ein Zufall verwickelt die Helden in Das Netz aus Intrigen zwischen vodaccischen Adligen, wo sie zwischen Spionen, Kurtisanen und illegalen Duellanten eine schwierige Entscheidung treffen müssen.

Das Netz und andere Abenteuer enthält vier Abenteuer für 7te See: Zweite Edition und bietet einer Gruppe von Helden viele Stunden Spielspaß.
