    Courtesy of WotC is this preview from the upcoming adventure, Out of the Abyss. This preview features Zuggtmoy, the Lady of Rot, and the Demon Queen of Fungi. Out of the Abyss is only a month away now (or even earlier for preferred stores which get an 11-day head start). "Zuggtmoy, Demoness Lady of Fungi, dread and fell ruler of the 222nd ghastly plane of the Abyss, made her first full appearance in T1-4 The Temple of Elemental Evil. In her natural form, she appeared as a puffball mushroom with a toadstool growing on top. Four elephantine legs with suckers on the bottoms supported her spherical body. Truly disgusting to smell, and just as revolting to behold, Zuggtmoy is capable of summoning legions of hostile fungi to do her bidding, and may control all manner of plant life within her sphere of influence."

    Here's another preview of the Primeval Thule campaign setting for D&D 5th Edition coming from Sasquatch Games. I already showed you the table of contents and the beastman warrior. This time it's one of the nineteen character narratives from the setting. "In 5e, narratives can be taken as an alternative to backgrounds. Narratives provide a small list of benefits thematically linked to the story and flavor of the specific narrative. At first level these features include skill training and usually a signature ability that provides a small combat benefit. As the character increases in level, additional benefits become available, reflecting a rise in stature or notoriety. At higher levels a narrative might grant an income, a title, or even followers!" (thanks to Fabrício for the scoop!)

    The upcoming Pathfinder Battles miniatures set is called The Rusty Dragon Inn. The tavern-themed set includes not just bartenders and NPCs, but a number of monsters and fighty humanoids. This preview looks at the Guard, the Frost Giant Ice Mage (it's a tightly themed set, clearly!), and the Mounted Orc Rider on Dire Wolf. It's a big tavern!

    Over the last few days, a couple of Titansgrave snippets have snuck out onto the web.

    There's a new Occult Adventures preview, this time over at iO9. This one takes a look at the concept of auras - alignment, emotion, health, and magic auras. As designer Jason Bulmahn says, "Take auras for example. With these rules at your disposal, you can grant your player characters a new way to interact with the characters and monsters around them. Is the wolf giving off a bright red aura, then it is best to leave it alone or prepare for a fight. Is the merchant radiating an oily green aura, then it might be a good idea to reconsider the value of that sword you were about to buy."  ...READ MORE

    Paizo Publishing has very kindly sent over a super-secret super-exclusive two-page preview of the upcoming Occult Adventures hardcover book due for release later this year. Lead designer Jason Bulmahn also had a short message -- "We are really excited to unveil the secrets of our game with Occult Adventures. Releasing in time for Gen Con, this hardcover book includes our take on rules for psionic magic, including six new character classes ready to uncover the truth and unlock the powers of the mind! In addition, Occult Adventures includes a wide variety of archetypes for the new classes and many of the existing Pathfinder character classes as well. This spread shows off one of my favorites: the Cult Master. This vile character is just begging to be the villain in your next campaign. Finally, this meaty book also includes a huge list of new spells, magic items, and other rules to help players and GMs make the occult a part of their game!"

    Today, I have another preview from the (now recently released) Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventurer Kit from Privateer Press. The Iron Kingdoms Unleashed Adventure Kit introduces the harnesser arcane tradition through the nefarious (and probably mentally unhinged) Warlord Morrg. The ability to command his two warbeasts gives Morrg the authority he needs to keep his warband of farrow in line—and that ability is entirely thanks to the harnesser tradition.
