    The Blessed Lands Codex Geographica vol. I
    Arcanis 5E Supplement
    By Paradigm Concepts, Inc

    Birthplace of empires and the cradle of civilization, the Blessed Lands is the holiest of places upon Arcanis. Atop a thousand-foot-high mesa lies the First City. This once majestic metropolis served as the capital of no less than four great empires and laid abandoned for millennia. It is now being reclaimed, block by block, from the foul and malevolent creatures that made their lairs within. Half the city yet lies in ruin, its secrets awaiting discovery by the brave and foolhardy. Throngs of pilgrims journey to the region each year and caravans of exotic goods traverse the treacherous landscape in search of fortune. It is a land of danger and opportunity, of ancient curses and sacred temples.

    Explore the ancient Citadels of the Gods, journey across the Plain of Monuments, and hazard the Voei infested Fervidus Hills. Match wits with the canniest of merchants, thieves, and priests from across the Known Lands and the exotic empires and city-states to the west. Negotiate the tense détente between the legionnaires of the Coryani Empire and the soldiers from mysterious Khitan as they try to hold a fragile peace in this most volatile of cities.

    Within these pages you will find:

    • An in-depth history and survey of the Blessed Lands region
    • An exhaustive look at the people and locations within the First City
    • New Class Options, Divine Aspects, Fighter Archetypes, and Holy Champion Orders
    • New Backgrounds, Feats, and Spells
    • New Combat Schools
    • A Bestiary detailing some of the bizarre and dangerous creatures that inhabit the region

    Alien Breeds
    Traveller / Cepheus Engine Supplement
    By Zozer Games

    What would an ocean be without a monster lurking in the dark? It would be like sleep without dreams. [Werner Herzog]

    Alien Breeds is a roleplaying supplement for the Cepheus Engine and other classic 2D6 SF roleplaying games. It details a new species of hostile alien predator with both an unnerving and horrific lifecycle as well as an ability to mutate ad hoc to suit its current environment. Alien Breeds works well within Zozer Games’ own SF setting called Hostile, but it can be used in any Cepheus Engine game – as long as your players can handle this beast… and there is certainly no guarantee of that!

    Included with the book is a typical colony installation. It is a fairly small example, big enough to hold may be 50 or 60 people, enough for an extended science survey, a prospecting mission or the maintenance of some new equipment on planet – perhaps a powerplant, refinery, test mine or atmosphere processor.

    The colony layout is used in the included adventure – ‘Outbreak’.

THe pages of Forbidden Caverns are crammed full with new material, maps, amazing art (including special surprizes by former TSR artists), as well as an amazing colour cover art by Ex-TSR artist Erol Otus that matches Barrowmaze Complete 5E as a sister-book.

    As Louis Grunewald, a quiet linguistics professor from the Miskatonic University, you will confound the forces of darkness before time runs out—but should Professor Grunewald be eliminated for some reason, you can successively assume the identity of a new investigator. There are four ready-made investigators provided for this purpose, enabling you to take on differing roles as circumstances change in your search for the truth: Louis Grunewald, a linguistics professor from the Miskatonic University, Lydia Lau, a story-seeking reporter for the New York Sun, Devon Wilson, a sailor on leave from the US Navy, and Ernest Holt, a wealthy industrialist.

    This adventure is guaranteed dangerous. But, no matter how skillfully you avoid death or madness, your investigators will fail if they do not prevent the turning of the world and the freeing of the City of the Old Ones from the ice.

    Armed with a copy of the Call of Cthulhu Keepers Rulebook, a pencil, and some roleplaying dice you are all set for the twists and turns of this epic world spanning adventure. Sit back, get comfy, and prepare to be Alone Against The Dark!

    A Lion in the Ropes
    5th Edition Adventure
    By Troll Lord Games

    Boots wet from crossing the small river, you tramp onto the remnants of an old road. A small village lies before you. Its mostly wooden cottages stand arrayed in neat order along either side of the road. The dinner hour is only just passed and the town is muted and dark. Shutters and doors are tightly closed, and the gentle clanking of your armor and equipment echoes in the still quiet. No dogs bark. There is no sound but the ragged breaths of your tired band.

    Lord Galveston's lands are plagued by murders. For the past several months people have been disappearing. Some bodies have turned up, their corpses found along the banks of the river. Strange tracks of a cat-like creature have been found around the villages, and rumors abound that a charon fiend, a dreaded beast of chaos, has come from the nearby wood and settled in the area. The latest victim is the Deacon of the Four Saints Church in Capendu. His body, found in the river, sent the alarmed villagers in search of aid.

    The adventure unfolds in the lands of the aged Lord Galveston and plunges everyone into a twisted tale of wild beasts and the restless dead. Solve the riddle and discover the truth behind A Lion in the Ropes.
    A low-level adventure for a party of 4-8 characters. Play as stand-alone or part of a larger series.



    By Shadow of Night
    Castles & Crusades Adventure
    By Troll Lord Games

    In By Shadow of Night you’ll find a complete detailed description of Bergholt, a rich cast of NPCs who all have their own plots and plans, over 20 encounter areas, including a small dungeon and a large fold-out map of the city.

    The Crossings of Poros Adventure Pack
    Lord of the Rings LCG Expansion
    By Fantasy Flight Games

    The Crossings of Poros is the sixth and final Adventure Pack in the Haradrim cycle for The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game.

    For several of Middle-earth's heroes, the end to a long and difficult journey through Harad is nearly within sight. These heroes have survived a shipwreck and a desert crossing. They have tamed Mûmakil and allied themselves to a tribe of good-willed Haradrim. They have battled Orcs and Wargs. They have confronted Giant Spiders and wicked Southrons. And they have freed their friends from one of the Dark Lord's dungeons.

    But now the friends they have freed are slowing them down. The heroes know the Orcs and Wargs will soon return—and in greater numbers. The Southrons will want their revenge. And there are still many miles to cross before they reach the safety of Gondor.

    With its sixty cards (including a new hero and three copies of each new player card), The Crossings of Poros challenges you and your heroes to find your way through the final stretches of Harad. Will you lead your company through the desert? Or will you ask them to weave their way through the rocky hills of the Ephel Dúath? Both paths bring their own dangers, and it falls to you to safeguard your heroes, their allies, and their hope for freedom.

    Mansions of Madness 2nd Edition Expansion
    By Fantasy Flight Games

    Sanctum of Twilight is an expansion for Mansions of Madness Second Edition that unites two new investigators against the Order of the Silver Twilight in two thrilling scenarios. With new spells, items, mechanics, and a new monster, this expansion immerses players in the Arkham Files universe as they confront the dangers threatening Arkham from within.



    Leviathan
    Abyss Expansion
    By Bombyx

    News from the outpost is worrying. The Leviathans, these terrifying sea monsters, are converging towards the border and threatening the Kingdom. Will the Allies and the conscripts, mandated by each of the Guilds, contain them? Exploring is now dangerous: fighting is not easy, and fleeing can be even more dangerous — but the opportunity is unique to prove your worth and use this influence to gain access to the throne.

    In Abyss: Leviathan, the threat track is replaced by the border board on which Leviathan cards will be placed. When you explore the depths, if the revealed card is a monster, you can fight a Leviathan on the border. Some new lords and some allies will help you fight, using their power. The player who has killed the greatest number of sea monsters takes the statue and wins 5 extra points at the end of the game — and if you do not fight, you may get injured...

    Endangered Orphans of Condyle Cove
    1-4 players, ages 14+, 10-30+ minutes
    By Certifiable Games

    A deplorable tabletop game devoid of joy, hope, or humor; which, regrettably, is also far more awesome than it has any right to be.

    In Endangered Orphans of Condyle Cove, players take turns choosing to move around the board, playing options to either help their orphan survive, or make their opponent's orphan suffer.

    When an orphan either runs out of options, or in an act of desperation, reveals the boogeyman, the boogeyman takes the orphan.

    When all but one orphan are taken by the boogeyman, the game ends, and the last orphan to survive is the winner.



    The Hunter’s Nightmare
    Bloodborne: The Card Game Expansion
    By CMON Ltd

    Rising 5: Runes of Asteros
    1-5 players, ages 12+, 15-25+ minutes
    By Grey Fox Games

    Find the lost runes and save the planet Asteros!

    A long, long time ago, the ancient King of Asteros confined the brutal monsters in the Rune Gate and sealed it with four divine runes. But five days ago, a mysterious evil power opened the gate and changed the code. Asteros is haunted by fear and disasters again! The wise leader ORAKL asked the Council of United Planets and they sent four famous agents: EKHO, HAL, ELLI and NOVA. ORAKL the wise and the four brave agents begin to fight against the evil powers to save Asteros. They must find the Code to reset the Gate and confine the monsters again. People call them "Rising 5", hoping they will be able to restore peace on the planet.

    Rising 5: Runes of Asteros is a co-operative deduction and adventure game with a mobile phone application or a game master. Players must find the answer Code with the four Runes in the right arrangement before the evil power devours the planet. Players can explore the planet to collect energy or clues and to fight against evil monsters. When players try to unlock the code, the App or the game master will give signs that lead to right code.

    If players successfully find the code, they win; if the Darkness Level reaches the Red Moon because of the evil monsters or if the Character card deck is exhausted, the players lose the game.



    Feudum
    2-5 players, ages 12+, 80-180+ minutes
    By Odd Bird Games

    Blimey! You and your blokes have been banished and stripped of everything but a few shillings and table scraps. Undaunted, you journey to a strange land to reinvent yourself and reclaim your honor. Will you farm the earth, fight as knights or finagle your own feudums?

    Feudum (latin for fiefdom) is an economic medieval game of hand and resource management for 2-5 players. With many strategies at their disposal, players optimize four actions per turn in attempt to score the most victory points over five epochs.

    Each player controls several medieval characters that roam the countryside tending farms, taxing towns and taking outposts in effort to rise in power.

    But that’s only the tip of the behemoth's horn! You will also compete to acquire coveted feudums, which increase your membership status in one of six guilds. But beware! Feudum owners must pay homage to the king through military service or face the charge of disloyalty.

    Once a guild member, you will dutifully play your part in a progressive economic cycle, whereby the farmer ships goods to the merchant who equips the alchemist, who invents black powder, which arms the knight, and so on.

    If you run your guilds wisely, maintain control of key locations and adapt best to changing events, you will be victorious. Unless, of course, you starve, get sidetracked by sea serpents or develop an unhealthy interest in fermented grapes. Long live the King!



    Windmills & Catapults
    Feudum Expansion
    By Odd Bird Games

    Bull spit and horse feathers! More strange folk have migrated to your neck of the woods, leaving you with little elbow room. To make matters worse, windmills and catapults are popping up like dandelions. That takes the biscuit! You’re not about to lick someone’s boots without a fight.

    Feudum: Windmills & Catapults is a riveting and rambunctious region tile expansion. The game adds new region tiles, royal writs, a wooden windmill, and the ability to play with a 6th, pewter-colored player!



    Seals & Sirens
    Feudum Expansion
    By Odd Bird Games

    Feudum: Seals & Sirens is a surreal seafaring expansion of Feudum. This expansion adds 6 whirlpool discs, 1 royal writs and a wooden siren.

    Squirrels & Conifers
    Feudum Expansion
    By Odd Bird Games

    Feudum: Squirrels & Conifers is a "mini-expansion" featuring 50 tasty squirrels and 6 wooden conifer trees that bring the board's topography to life!
