    Orbi-City-Station
    Starfinder Compatible Setting
    By Straight Path Games

    Sitting on a disk dozens of miles across is a city of metal and glass. Yet, for as intimidating as it appears from a distance the streets are a riot of warm colors and filled the soft sounds of laughter and good cheer. This is the city of Orbi: home to the exotic Nomi and galactic hub of entertainment.

    Orbi isn't a normal city, however, but a city-sized ship and space-station that serves as home to more than half a million aliens from across the galaxy, most of who were picked up in their home systems, as Orbi touched down on their planets to sample their culture.

    Landing on these worlds isn't an exception, but rather the rule. Thanks to the city-station's incredible Bend Engine, Orbi is more than capable of landing on nearly any planet they can reach.

    Also included in this book are rules for the Nomi, the excitable six-limbed explorers of the universe. Gregarious and curious to a fault, this small race excels in the use of alien technology, using their excellent problem-solving skills and short term memories to break down alien cultures or mechanical problems with equal ease.

    Orbi is a perfect fit in any science-fiction setting, such as the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, but already contains rules to be instantly adapted to a fantasy setting instead, such as the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. And the mobile nature of the station says it doesn't need to only show up once - it can appear in different times and places throughout a campaign, no matter how far the party might travel.

    And one last thing - this PDF brings you into the future as much as the setting does: this PDF is available in screen-focused landscape designed just for your desktop or mobile devices. No more scrolling back and forth and up and down just to read one page!

    By Rule & Make

    Skyward is a strategy card drafting game of control versus opportunity for 2-4 players.
    After generations of turmoil, the four factions have finally put their differences aside to work together for a better tomorrow. As a commitment to this alliance, the world’s first airborne city, named Skyward, is to be built above the intersecting borders of the four realms. Tasked with building this new city, you and other cultural luminaries vie for control by becoming the Warden, and ultimately declared “Founder of Skyward”.

    In Skyward, the Warden deals cards from the central deck and splits them into piles however they see fit. Each player chooses a pile, providing them with buildings and resources. However, being the Warden is a double edged sword. While you wield the power of the split, everyone else gets to choose first, leaving you with the remaining pile.

    Skyward is played over several rounds. Each round starts with The Split, followed by individual player turns. The goal of the game is to launch a combination of buildings that yield the most Victory Points. The end game is triggered when any player launches their 6th building or the central deck is emptied. Complete the current round as you would normally, then complete one final split. The player with the most Victory Points wins the game.

    Ah, what’s hatching over there? Four small cheeky chicks are beginning to poke through their shells and immediately they have an enormous appetite. Only one thing will help – food! But watch out. The roll of the die will decide what the chicks can be fed and how quickly they will grow. Which of them will be the first to grow into a stately little bird?

    The Curse of Dead Man’s Hand
    Dead Man’s Hand Supplement
    By Great Escape Games

    The curse has finally come to Dead Man's Hand. Get together anybody you can, time to put petty rivalries aside and stand together against an enemy who shows no mercy, who will take it all, and leave you with nothing, not even your soul. The Curse of Dead Man's Hand and it's contents can be used in several ways. The gangs contained within can be added to the normal roster of gangs in the usual way to play games of DMH. Each gang comes with all the information that you need to use it in a standard Legend of Dead Man's Hand campaign. The Baron's gang has to be used in a slightly different way as he is not interested in the petty rivalries of men, he is only interested in one thing, the destruction of mankind and the swelling of his host.

    The other option that the book contains is a two player narrative campaign between the Baron and whichever gang feels that it is brave enough to try to stop him. The campaign follows a story line with the combatants trying to wrestle control of DMH from the other. Each game leads to another and the result of each game has consequences and directs future game play.

    The Curse of Dead Man’s Hand contains rules for running multi-player campaigns, 10 new scenes and four new gang types: The Baron, The Seven, Mountain Men and The Malevolent Seven. The book comes with a deck of 16 special cards for the four new gang types plus an extra 8 optional cards for fighting The Baron.
