  • What's O.L.D. is N.E.W.


    THIS IS THE LAST DAY FOR THIS BUNDLE! If you've been curious about the What's OLD is NEW system, the games that I write, and the fantasy, modern, and science-fiction games it contains, Bundle of Holding is featuring a fantastic deal right now! You can pick up all three, as well as several expansions, for as little as $9.95. And even better, part of that goes straight to Doctors Without Borders!

    The mechanisms (legal, financial, and production-wise) WotC crafted with DriveThruRPG for the Dungeon Masters Guild launched a whole new concept in our hobby and industry. Community created content has always been a part of gaming (see the Perrin Conventions of 1976), but never has the concept been so well-supported - encouraged, even - to include the capacity for fans to actually earn money for the things they create in support of their favorite systems and settings. This week was a celebration of that rather powerful set of tools.

    Those who enjoyed WOIN's recent Starship Recognition Manual will love this upcoming add-on -- a deck of 6"x6" glossy tiles, each featuring a starship with art and vital information on the front, and the full stat block on the back. Below, you can see the Drake Class VIII Frigate, and also some of the hex counters which come included in the tile deck. These Starship Tiles are due out in the next couple of weeks!

    Hello everyone, Darryl here with this week’s gaming news! The National Museum of Play gets a massive donation of games from Mayfair founders, Harry Potter and Choose Your Own Adventure coming to a tabletop near you, Dresden Files coming to your digital devices, a lot of segues, and more!

    Out now in PDF (with softcover coming soon) is the WOIN Starship Recognition Manual! Over 70 starships with full stats, illustrations, and (for five of them) deckplans! This is probably my favourite WOIN book so far, and almost certainly one of the best looking. Check out the gorgeous previews below!

    The second in the series of alien race sourcebooks is out for What's OLD is NEW fans. The Holds of Vendalyr delves into the mysteries of the (colloquially named) Venetian race, who have colonized the Beehive Cluster, about 180 parsecs from Sol. The PDF is out now, with the softcover coming to DTRPG and Amazon very soon.

    The WOIN Starship Construction Manual, which provides detailed rules for building a wide variety of ship for use with the starship combat rules found in NEW and other WOIN games, has just received an update to Version 1.1.

    This week's WOIN update isn't a PDF - it's something much, much bigger! We have 83 starships for you, fully statted and illustrated! Need to grab an appropriate vessel for your PCs or a suitable foe for an epic space battle? Need the stats of that pirate ship, Spartan destroyer, or nimble freighter? You'll find civilian ships, plus ships from the United Space Force, Venetians, Borians, Ogrons, and Spartans!

    WOIN fans are in for a treat over on EONS, the official What's OLD is NEW Patreon, with the latest article SolSpace: A Brief Timeline. The first "official" look at the core science fiction setting, including a timeline and maps of known space.

    Just in time for Christmas, you can pick up a digest-sized black-and-white paperback copy of N.E.W. The Science Fiction Roleplaying Game for under $10! on Amazon! This is the errata-ed, updated v.1.2 printing of the book.

    Last week, Patreon - a service used by a lot of RPG creators - announced a policy change out of the blue. They emailed creators and patrons alike, unilaterally telling them that they were essentially passing some costs on to the patrons, and thus increasing the amount of their pledges. Creators - including us here at EN World - watched in horror as our hard-won patron bases, which we've built up over months and years, cancelled their pledges; and we could hardly blame them. Fortunately, the outcry was heard - Patreon is NOT implementing that disastrous change!

    The crew of Turn Order: Warped, the official live stream of the WOIN roleplaying game system, interrupted their normal space opera campaign for a one-off "Holosim" episode this last weekend for their 1-year anniversary. It's an awesome mishmash of genres, combining the Wild West, Xenomorphs, and Back to the Future... "In a special episode of Warped, the crew visits the Holosimulator for some R&R. The visit the wild west to try out a program from Ambassador Keith when Betty realizes that someone else should probably handle the holosim repairs from now on."
