Allies and Enemies of The Imperial Throne

Fantasy Flight Games - Tue, 02/14/2012 - 16:16
A Warhammer: Invasion The Card Game spotlight

Man does not stand alone in his war against the darkness. The proud warhosts of the elder races stride out from their ancient realms, resplendent and majestic.
    –Warhammer, “War Unending”

Even as the Empire of Man strengthens its borders with the upcoming release of The Imperial Throne, new allies arrive to lend their aid for the coming battles, and messengers arrive from the threatened lands to the north, offering reports of terrible Daemons who have joined the ranks of the Chaos marauders. War is coming. War will shake the very foundations of the Old World, and no one can remain secluded, isolated, and hope to emerge unscathed.

Warhosts of the elder races

Nearly half of the cards from The Imperial Throne lend strength to the mighty Empire’s cause in the face of daunting opposition. However, each of the factions gains new strength from this final Battle Pack in The Capital Cycle, and the High Elves gain the services of a truly potent Mage. The Mage of the White Tower (The Imperial Throne, 113) lends tremendous focus to a deck that incorporates the High Elves’ many useful Attachment support cards.

The Mage’s loyalty cost means he’ll rarely see action before the second turn, and his one power and two hit points are unremarkable for three resources. However, the Mage’s true strength is in finding the potential within each Attachment you play. Not only do Attachments played upon the Mage of the White Tower provide their normal bonuses, they each provide the Mage an additional power. Furthermore, each time you play an Attachment on the Mage, you gain a free card draw. Thus, in a deck with a good ratio of Attachment cards, the Mage can quickly ramp up to immense power.

What support cards should you consider? In short, any Attachment gains triple purpose when you control the Mage of the White Tower, but you can cycle through your deck with zero-cost Attachments like Dragon Mage Wakening (Assault on Ulthuan, 12), Isha’s Gaze (The Deathmaster’s Dance, 68), and Blessing of Isha (Core Set, 53), gaining additional card draw and power by playing them.

Dragon Mage Wakening is especially strong, helping to protect your Mage from your enemies, and the card also makes an excellent combination with the Dreamer of Dragons (Redemption of a Mage, 68). With these cards and a quiver full of Ithilmar Arrows (Realm of the Phoenix King, 29), the High Elves stand poised on the precipice of greatness, looking forward to the exciting future before them in The Bloodquest Cycle.

Blood rituals

How would you like to crush the forces of Order with a unit that grants you four power for zero resources? Well, you might not be able to summon a Daemon Prince (The Imperial Throne, 114) entirely free, but if you demonstrate sufficient loyalty to the Ruinous Powers and offer a few blood sacrifices, the Daemon Prince will help you carve a path through the Empire’s cavalry and skewer their footmen.

Of course, the fact you must sacrifice three units appears a significant drawback, but it becomes less and less of one as you consider fulfilling it with cards that grant other boons as they leave play. Crypt Ghouls (March of the Damned, 43) feed you two resources when they leave play, making them effectively cost neutral after you no longer need their power. A Doombull (Chaos Moon, 32) wreaks havoc upon your opponent’s units with its dying breaths, Ungor Raiders (Omens of Ruin, 12) wreck your opponent’s developments as they depart, and Blue Horrors (Tooth and Claw, 51) can respawn in unending waves (if you have ways of getting them from your discard pile back into your hand). Often these effects that are triggered when these units leave play are more important than the power and hit points the units add to their respective zones, making them excellent fodder for blood rituals that gain you even greater power.

War is coming

Armies on all sides move through the Empire of Man, anticipating bloody battle as The Imperial Throne braces for war. This climactic final Battle Pack in The Capital Cycle for Warhammer: Invasion is due to shake the foundations of the Old World by next week, when it becomes available at retailers everywhere!

Wicked Fantasy: Orks: Children of Pain

RPGNow - Tue, 02/14/2012 - 15:58
 Children of PainPublisher: John Wick Presents

Come closer to the fire, child. Come closer, listen and I will tell
you how we murdered the gods...

Wicked Fantasy began as a series of articles in Kobold Quarterly
Magazine reinventing the "standard races" in fantasy roleplaying. Now,
those same articles have been expanded and revised (five times their
original size!) and fit with the PATHFINDER Roleplaying Game.

The second in the series--Children of Pain--tackles the most set upon, abused and misunderstood race in all of fantasy literature: the orks.

Created for lives of evil, orks rose up and overthrew their gods. Now,
they battle against what they were so they may forge their own
destinies.

No longer the "standard evil race," orks have become something more.
Taught that all life was pain and that only pain makes an ork great,
they have embraced that philosophy, while at the same time, turning it
into something greater. They are no longer the slaves of dark gods.
They are orks. Free to choose. Free to make the world into a better
place... or rend it to shreds with their bloodlust and rage.

Wicked Fantasy: Children of Pain includes:

  • FULL COLOR AND FULLY ILLUSTRATED!
  • New Ork Racial Traits
  • New Feats including Masochistic Feats and Reputation Feats
  • New Oracle Archetype: The Oracle of Blood
  • New Barbarian Archetype: The Gahthrak (God Eater)
  • New Bard Archetype: The Fala
  • Ork Blooding Rituals
  • And More!
Price: $5.00

Informational Rescue

Pelgrane Press Ltd - Tue, 02/14/2012 - 15:29

A Ripped From the Headlines Scenario Premise for Ashen Stars

As this article reveals, the conversion of mortgages into complex financial instruments did more than provoke the 2008 global financial meltdown. The data-tracking process used to spin fragments of mortgages off into a tradeable derivative—creating a sort of mortgage slurry, if you will—now makes it impossible to determine whether homeowners, banks, investors, or anyone at all really owns certain real-world property. A nebulously owned property can’t be used as collateral, undermining a key value of everyday finance.

Speaking of slicing and dicing, this springboards a scenario that perfectly fits the Ashen Stars setting, where information loss has been one of the prices paid by a former stellar utopia torn at the seams by recent warfare.

Unlike most planets of the Combine, the synthculture planet Trump’s World practiced 20th century capitalism –albeit in idealized, tourist-park form—even before the Mohilar War. Private ownership of property underpinned this historical reenactment economy. Now info-saboteurs have struck at the heart of the system, scrambling the worldwide property database. The PCs are hired to track down the McGuffin on which the entire economy rests—the single accurate copy of the pre-disaster real estate registry. Complicating the mission: plenty of Trump’s World moguls want the database back up—after they get a chance to fiddle with it, just a little…

6d6 Core + Outbreak! + Starter Pack

RPGNow - Tue, 02/14/2012 - 06:02
6d6 Core + Outbreak! + Starter PackPublisher: 6d6 Fireball
6d6 Core - A Game for the 21st Century

"This is a really tight little rules set that is very detailed. I’ve played and enjoyed card-based systems before and I’m impressed with the innovation for play and the interplay of cards and flow that go into making up actions. It changes the dynamic from a typical tabletop RPG and even from the other card-based RPGs I’ve played. The freedom to design an action from all your cards is compelling."  - The Rhetorical Gamer, review of 6d6 Core

"The game scenario will work brilliantly and you’ll probably never get the same exact results twice. 6d6 RPG and Outbreak! definitely seems like a winning combination to me. It’s not your average RPG, and that makes it very intriguing." - Game Knight Reviews, review of Oubreak!

Chris Tregenza running 6d6 at Indiecon 2010

Hello, I'm Chris Tregenza

I wrote 6d6 because I did not have the time to read a 300 page rule book. I wrote it because I was frustrated by players' turns taking 10 minutes as they worked out the modifiers to their attack roll for each the seven different spell effects currently running. I wrote it because I wanted game mechanics that supported my role-playing and characterisation.

I released it under the Creative Commons because I want people to share and pass round my PDFs. I made everything available free-to-read online because buying an RPG product should never be a leap in the dark and I created the Living Document Promise because I believe you should only need to buy a game once.

What is the 6d6 Core?

6d6 CoreThe 6d6 Core explains how to play the 6d6 RPG from first principles right up to expanding the game. The table of contents and everything else in the book can all be read online. As the core rule set, the book does not come with any details about a setting or pages of monster stats and character types. These the GM will have to create, or they can us the growing library of adventures and settings.

What is Outbreak!?

Outbreak!Outbreak! is an adventure set during a zombie apocalypse and is designed to be played over one or two sessions. It has been 6d6's staple demonstration game for the last eighteen months and has been polished into a great introductory adventure.

What is in the Starter Pack?

The stater pack contains the designs for 240 cards suitable for use in a modern-day setting, and is an ideal starting point for the GM interested in developing their own settings or adventures. For ease and speed of printing the cards are formated 10 per A4 page and laid out to fit the Avery C32011 'print-your-own' business card range. 

The Living Document, What Is That All About?

6d6 believe you should only have to buy a game once and that you should not need to spend more money just because the publisher decides to release a new edition. After buying any 6d6 product, if you register it with us we make this promise -- No matter how many versions, editions and updates of the 6d6 Core or Outbreak! we do in the future, you will always be able to download the latest version.

Anything Else I Should Know?

6d6 is an open company. All our plans are discussed in public and our financial situation can be read about on our blog. We are building a company for long-term success which means we have to support and reward our writers. Instead of paying them royalties, we pay them one third of the sales price (excluding the reseller's cut). So whatever you pay for this PDF, after RPG Now take their 35% cut, two thirds cover the company's overhead and one third of that goes to the writer.

Any More Questions?

If you have any questions about 6d6, the core rules, Outbreak! or the business, or if you are interested in writing for 6d6, please just ask. We can be found on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

The Genius Guide to What's in my Pocket?

RPGNow - Tue, 02/14/2012 - 06:02
The Genius Guide to What's in my Pocket?Publisher: Super Genius Games

It’s fairly common for randomly generated treasure to include a few mundane or low-value items. While these may be appreciated and hoarded for the few coins they can raise at low-levels, fairly early in most campaigns players stop caring much about items taken from the standard equipment tables (players only appreciate so many sunrods). However, sometimes a GM wants to spark some interest and mystery without handing out a major magic item, or at least make a world seem more in-depth by providing some colorful items that suggest they have a backstory behind them. To assist in such efforts, this product provides 110 odd little items, none of which will be of great use to players, but all of which might pique their interest.

To be on the list, an item had to be small enough to fit in a pocket, belt pouch, or backpack. Its weight had to be negligible, and its value low. None of these items give bonuses to rolls or checks. Rather, the items were designed to encourage players to ask questions and to act as starting points for GMs who wanted to introduce some new story hooks. These are creative motes and ideas rather than specific story elements, and they are best used by GMs who like creating stories and rumors on the fly. Even if one of these items didn’t encourage further investigation when found, it may provide another great opportunity for a GM to create a colorful background when characters attempt to sell it.

Unless an item gives a specific value, these items are worthless (or if the GM prefers worth 1 cp) or valued at 10 gp. While in most cases it should be obvious whether an item is a minor valuable or essentially junk, ultimately it’s left as an exercise for the GM to decide which is which – while mithral shards may be valuable in one campaign and a rat jawbone worthless, it would not be difficult to conceive of an economy that reverses those valuations.
