Whispers of the ForgottenPublisher: gannet games

When Lord Dell killed the great black wolf with a single arrow he knew it was a sign from the gods. He decided to build his new hunting lodge on the site of his triumph, deep in the woods and far from civilisation. But from the very beginning the construction was beset with problems, the workers believing the site to be haunted or cursed.

The PCs have been hired to investigate what is happening and find themselves face to face with the remnants of an evil so terrible that all mention of it has been wiped from history.

The module includes new monsters, new templates and new magic items.

Whispers of the Forgotten is compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and can be easily adaped to any campaign. It is designed for four characters of 4th level who should attain 5th level at completion.

Fiasco: The Dungeon Delve

 The Dungeon DelvePublisher: Brouhaha Games

This playset is an accessory for the Fiasco role-playing game.

Rumors of fabulous treasures and power beyond imagining drew us to this small village. Sure the tavern has a decent selection of ale and the inn is relatively free of bedbugs, but that’s not what we’re here for and we’re not sticking around once we clean out the dungeon. We might not be friends, heck, we might not even like each other. We do have one thing in common though: you want to win fame and for-tune, whatever the costs. What could go wrong?


The Dungeon Delve is a kid-friendly Fiasco playset - it’s designed for ages 12 and up and is meant to evoke the feeling and style of “old school” dungeon exploration.

Self-Healing in 13th Age

Pelgrane Press Ltd - Tue, 08/14/2012 - 14:11

D&D 4E caused a lot of controversy with its self-healing rules. Thirteenth Age has its own self-healing rules. Here’s my take on the topic.

My first self-healing rules were in 1992, in Over the Edge. It’s a modern-day RPG with no built-in healer class, so the characters needed to be able to heal up some on their own. My rule was that after every fight you’d get back half the damage you took in that fight. The rule reflected both real life and fiction, in which people who get beat up in a fight can  bounce back without magic.

Unlike Over the Edge, D&D 3E didn’t need self-healing. Instead, it had amped-up cleric healing. Spontaneous healing and wands of cure light wounds meant there was always plenty of healing available. But in 2002, when I wrote Omega World, player-characters again needed some self-healing capability. The characters were postapocalyptic mutants, and there were no healing spells. I thought about re-using the Over the Edge “half-damage” rules, but I instead came up with a mathematically similar system, called reserves. With reserves, you have a number of self-healing points equal to your hit points, and you can use them up on a one-to-one basis to heal hit points. Since Omega World was under the OGL, Mike Mearls picked up reserves in his Iron Heroes book, published by Monte Cook. Self-healing was later a major new feature of D&D 4E. I’m happy to include our own version of hit-point-recovery in 13th Age. PCs in 13th Age are heroes, the very sort of people who can pick themselves up after getting beaten down, with or without magic.

One virtue of self-healing is that it takes a load off the cleric. The traditional d20 cleric is inherently too powerful because it provides the party’s ability to heal up. In 3E, a party of four clerics kicks ass in a way that no other single-class party can. The spontaneous healing rules gave clerics more options, but they also made an already powerful class even more powerful. In 13th Age, clerics still heal their allies, but the PCs are in some sense responsible for most of their own hit point recovery. Recovery rules distribute the party’s ability to heal up among the party members, rather than concentrating it in one class’s portfolio. The party isn’t dependent on a cleric, and the cleric is free from the task for measuring out the party’s healing.

It’s Quiet… Too Quiet…

AEG - Tue, 08/14/2012 - 12:00

You may have noticed that the Tempest blog has been very quiet over the last two months. You may also have noticed that we are launching Smash Up at Gen Con. The two are related; we have a lot to say about Tempest, but we also wanted to ensure that Smash Up had its day in the sun. 

The next few months are all about Tempest. If you don’t know what Tempest really is, click here and find out.

Gen Con will be the first road test for the line. For the past few months, we have been having game designers and would-be game designers signing up to access our Tempest Developer’s Toolbox, which is chock full of background, art, and other items of interest to game designers. 

We are actively searching for more fun games for Tempest’s 2013 releases, and I expect that we—that is to say, fellow AEGis Jeremy Holcomb and myself—will be seeing many prototypes at Gen Con this year. 

And some of them have already been themed up for Tempest. How do I know? We’ve seen them

In addition, I will have fun stuff to show to the fine members of the gaming press. 

Sadly, we will not be showing (let alone selling) Tempest at Gen Con. But in the meantime, you can check out an interview with Philip duBarry, designer of the forthcoming Tempest game Courtier, here. His interview starts at 147:11.

And next week we’ll take a look at the origins of the games.

So comment below and let me know: which of the Tempest games are you most looking forward to?

Leagues of Adventure - Globetrotters' Guide to Unusual Places

Leagues of Adventure - Globetrotters' Guide to Unusual PlacesPublisher: Triple Ace Games

The world is vast and wondrous place. An entire ice-sheathed continent and the fathomless depths of the ocean floor have yet to be explored beyond cursory expeditions, and miles of dark, dank caverns have never echoed with the footsteps of man. While explorers prepare to penetrate these last truly unexplored regions, others cast their eyes to the heavens, wondering what might be found on the Moon, or even Mars, the planet of war, and cloud-swathed Venus, the planet of love.

This supplement focuses on some of the more unusual places globetrotters might end up exploring on their journeys of adventure and derring-do, and provides stats for their inhabitants. It introduces new Leagues, weird science devices, and Flaws, and provides two sample character and a page of henchmen ideal for aiding in expeditions to the unusual realms.

Although written for Leagues of Adventure, this produce is fully compatible with the Hollow Earth Expedition RPG.

Castles & Crusades Golden Shingles

RPGNow - Tue, 08/14/2012 - 06:05
Castles & Crusades Golden ShinglesPublisher: Troll Lord Games

The House of Anduel stood for many years. Here men of the old gods gathered to make feast and sacrifice to the Og Aust; Nunt the River King and Anduel the Eagle. The house beckoned for within it stood a magical stair, the Eagle’s Walk. To climb its heights proved a challenge but to succeed gained one the blessings of the gods.

But time is a harsh master, and the house fell to ruin. A few walls, and flagstones remain; and the stair. It rises through the ruins, breaching the forest canopy to climb into the sky, a beacon to all. But few climb it now and those few who have tried have died. Tis said a haunt of the old world holds the stair its own, but if any could overcome it then they too would be blessed by the Golden Shingle.

Golden Shingles is part of an ongoing series of encounter areas, Adventures on the Powder River. Golden Shingles is a follow on to the To the Damenheit Bridge (part 1), Thorns for Beer (part 2) and River Walk (part 3) encounter areas, picking up the Cobbled Way. The encounter itself is portable to any locale but is designed for use in the Darkenfold Forest in the world of Aihrde. The encounter area serves as a good base of operations for the Adventures on the Powder River series, or as a plug and play for one night’s use.

Designed for use with Castles & Crusades, though portable to any standard RGP system.
