Nightfall (high school supernatural drama with the cypher system)

RPGNow - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 23:01
Nightfall (high school supernatural drama with the cypher system)Publisher: Monte Cook Games

Dark forces are descending on a small rural town. Unnatural creatures prowl the woods. Things stir about in the graveyard. In the heart of town, a wicked witch conspires to become Homecoming Queen. And you have a test in the morning.

Meanwhile, you and your friends are in the woods trying to catch a dead body. It runs surprisingly fast. As you start to catch up with it, you hope that noise you hear behind you is your buddies finally catching up. You need to get this over with -- you've got a history test in the morning. Then the real horror begins.

Nightfall is an attempt to utilize the Cypher System to create gameplay experiences in the tradition of television shows like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Teen Wolf, and Smallville.  You play nosy teenagers in a small town overcome with supernatural troubles.

While the basic Cypher System character types of Warrior, Explorer, Adept, and Speaker are fine for adventure and high-thrill heroics, the four new character types in this book were made with teenage investigators in mind, and contain abilities more oriented toward unique roleplaying experiences rather than just excelling in combat.

The heart of this product is the four new character types introduced:

- The Contender, who inspires confidence and competency in others, excels in physical endeavors, and benefits from competition with other contenders

- The Charmer, who utilizes a new mechanic of influence to harness the power of his social network. It's not just about what you can do, its about who you know.

- The Scholar, who gains confidence and capabilities through extensive research done beforehand. He manages a pool of secret information, which he can spend during the game to give himself (and the group) key advantages.

- The Sleuth, who speciqalizes in getting in and out of trouble on his own, with expertise in both deceptiuon and stealth as well as uncovering secrets and exposing the hidden.

Also included is over a dozen pages of bonus material including tips & tricks for running a campaign in a high school setting and utilizing the static nature of recurring characters and locations to enhance your game.

 Upper Lockgold StreetPublisher: Heroic Maps

Upper Lockgold Street


They say that Upper Lockgold Street is paved with gold, but whilst that's clearly a metaphor, it's small wonder that people recognise the area as a wealthy one. Home to the city Law Courts, a powerful bank and a renowned library, people pay a fortune to live on the same street. But, like the cheap wood revealed behind peeling gold leaf, strip away the wealth of the street and find the cellars and sewers beneath.

  A set of printable battlemaps compatible with any RPG/Dungeon-Crawl game. Use as a standalone gameboard, or combine with any same-scale tileset.
Contents: A set of three 20 x 20 maps depicting a wealthy city street. The ground level features a law court, bank, library, restaurant, fine-shop and several houses. Each of these buildings has an upper floor, with bedrooms and offices. Below the streets are sewers, basements and cellars, with laundry rooms, vaults, jails, archives, counterfeiter workshops and much more. Your party may need to venture below the street when planning their bank heist!
Also included are 300dpi full size jpgs, for poster printing or VTT. (n.b. gridless version only available as jpeg)   - -  Price: $7.50

Starfinder Cheat Sheet!

Starfinder Cheat Sheet!

Friday, August 18, 2017

Starfinder just launched! We know that a lot of you are excited to start playing. We also know that the Starfinder Core Rulebook is 528 pages long. That's a lot to digest in a day.

Fortunately, you don't have to! While Starfinder has a ton of differences from Pathfinder, both glaring and subtle, one of the things we shot for in the design was making sure that if you know how to play Pathfinder, it's a fairly easy switch over to Starfinder. Toward that end, Starfinder Design Lead Owen K.C. Stephens has crafted this handy one-page "cheat sheet" to help you jump straight into the action. While these notes on key rules and differences between the two games is by no means exhaustive, and no substitute for actually reading the Core Rulebook, it should provide some helpful reminders and make it easier for your gaming group to dive in and start adventuring right away.

You might twist them into a rampaging monster, or destroy the culture's relationship with the garment. What right do you have to power?  

Weave is a diceless storytelling game for two or more players. To play, you'll just need some paper, character sheets, some crayons/pens, and a few hours to play through an episode of your journey.

Unable to sate its undead appetite for the flesh of the living, what little mind it has left is driven mad by hunger. It will viciously attack any living creature who crosses its path. Even its creators must tread carefully in its presence, for its rotting brain can’t distinguish between friend and foe.

Gregorius21778: Welcome to Junkbeach

RPGNow - Fri, 08/18/2017 - 15:07
 Welcome to JunkbeachPublisher: Kai Pütz a.k.a Gregorius21778

Now, what do we have here...?

A lot of time has passed since the heights of mankind. While humanity marked its time in bunkers and cryostasis, or slowly came to terms with the radioactive lands of tomorrow, the ocean had have enough time return most of the trash that civilization dumped into it “back to sender”, and right onto the coasts wherever the streams and currents allowed for it.

The result is a Junkbeach, a place where down-on-their-luck scavengers and looters shift through what has been washed ashore, in hope of finding ANYTHING useful or trade-worthy. And sometimes, there even is some useful stuff: whole automated container ships sunk in the aftermath of that day, others ended up on sand banks and reefs as satellite navigation began to fail. The ocean is not careful with the things it gets, but it is not a hoarder: sooner or later, things that drift and float are spilled back onto the coast.

The preview shows you the whole of the title: read first and make up your mind about payment later.
