    Wil Wheaton's new RPG web show, Titansgrave, has launched. Based on Green Ronin's upcoming Fantasy AGE roleplaying game, it features Wil Wheaton as the GM running a group of celebrity players (Hank Green, Alison Haislip, Yuri Lowenthal, and Laura Bailey) through an adventure set in his own created setting, Titansgrave: Ashes of Valkana. The show will be running every Tuesday up until Gen Con (late July).

    Wil Wheaton has announced that the RPG show Titansgrave, which was originally due to launch yesterday, will instead be launching next week on June 9th. After reviewing the episodes, he feels that they're not quite ready, and that an extra week of post-production is needed. He explains more in the video below. Titansgrave, as you may know, will be a weekly show depicting an RPG campaign using Green Ronin's upcoming Fantasy AGE rules and Wheaton's own Titansgrave setting.

    Geek & Sundry has revealed the full artwork piece from Wil Wheaton's Titansgrave RPG show that I've been showing you parts of recently. The full image clearly shows the blend of sci-fi and fantasy. "Valkana is a broken and wounded world, a post-apocalyptic land of science fantasy that is so much fun to create and explore. I’m having a fantastic time imagining it, and I’m really excited for you all to come and visit, later this summer." The show premiers Tuesday, June 9th and will be shareable at places like here on EN World later that week.

    So, with Wil Wheaton's statement that the game being played in his new Tabletop RPG show is NOT Green Ronin's Dragon Age, it's time to start putting together the clues. Here's everything we know so far. I figured that if I've spent 15 years doing this exact thing to compile information about D&D books, hopefully the process work for a web show, too! Note: I think I've fixed the issue preventing Chrome users from reading the article.

    Green Ronin's Chris Pramas has offered some cryptic clues as to a product slated for Gen Con this year. "Our goal is to release Fantasy AGE in May. Then at the end of July we will release the game’s first setting book. This is our big GenCon release and part of something super exciting … that I can’t talk about yet. This will be the focus of our GenCon presence this year and perhaps the biggest RPG story of the year. Watch for an announcement in a few months." What could it be?

    Over the Gen Con period, a couple of other D&D 5E Monster Manual previews found their way into the wild. Check them out below! The Monster Manual was floating around at Gen Con (along with the PHB and Hoard of the Dragon Queen). I'm sure more than one gamer considered a smash and grab...

    Wil Wheaton's show usually features boardgames -- it's awesome that he's covering an RPG in this episode! It's only a quick look - it's hard to fit an entire RPG into a 30-minute format - but I think they pull it off!

    TV's Wil Wheaton has an Indiegogo campaign for his Tabletop show. One of the stretch goals - at $1,000,000! - is an RPG version of the show. "Yes, you heard right, the show you've all been asking for! Geek & Sundry will create a new show, in the TableTop style, featuring Wil and a group of his friends playing a season-long campaign in an RPG. Unlike the one-shot we did for Dragon Age, which was just a couple hours in one adventure, this series will follow a group of players and their characters through multiple levels, challenges, and possible character deaths as an entire campaign is played out over the course of a year."

    Wil Wheaton and guests Ed Brubaker (Writer—Captain America, Criminal, Angel of Death), Robert Gifford (Founder—Geek Chic), and Morgan Webb (Host—X-Play) play Pandemic over on Geek & Sundry's latest episode of Tabletop. Pandemic is a cooperative board game designed by Matt Leacock and published by Z-Man Games in 2008, based on the premise that four diseases have broken out in the world, each threatening to wipe out a region. The game accommodates 2 to 4 players, each playing one of five possible specialists: (dispatcher, medic, scientist, researcher or operations expert). The game is unlike most boardgames as the gameplay is cooperative, rather than competitive. Through the combined effort of all the players, the goal is to discover all four cures before any of several game-losing conditions are reached.
