    Yes there will be a standard edition, but it can't be preordered yet. https://www.cubicle7games.com/the-enemy-within-campaign-2/ You can, and I have: https://www.gamenerdz.com/warhammer-fantasy-rpg-4th-edition-enemy-in-shadows-the-enemy-within-campaign-part-1-preorder https://www.gamenerdz.com/warhammer-fantasy-rpg-4th-edition-enemy-in-shadows-companion-preorder At least the first part anyway. Given the prices on online game retailers the value proposition for this collection is pretty lacking.

  • 09:08 PM - Wraith Form quoted crazy_cat in post Traveller 5th Edition Reprint Is Kickstarting
    I don't own any of the previous Traveller 5 stuff, and have never read any, but from what I hear (its an over complex, over wordy version of the rules with numerous unwieldy sub-systems) I'd say HELL NO it would be an appalling place to start. I'd recommend either the quick start recommended above, or Cepheus Engine (an OGL clone of 1e Mongoose Traveller), or Mongoose 2e Traveller - a quick DTRPG search will find both/either and probably some other optiosn as well. Sadly, I have to concur. The Cepheus or Mongoose editions are very newbie-friendly compared to other editions.

  • 05:46 AM - MNblockhead quoted crazy_cat in post Is The Expanse RPG becoming vaporware?
    Question for those who have got the PDF. Is it any good? It is based on the Adventure Game Engine (a/k/a AGE System). I was not familiar with AGE before playing the game but the mechanics are pretty easy to pick up. You roll three six-sided dice, two are the same color, the third is a different color and is the "drama" die. You are trying to meet a target number. Rolling high is better. You add the three dice together, your ability score, and if you are "focused" in that ability, you add 2 more. Some "tests" require focus to attempt them. If the degree of success is important, that the drama die tells you how well (or not) you succeeded (e.g., you succeed on your roll when doing a quick patch up job to your ship, but a drama die of 1 will mean that the repair may not even last the encounter, whereas a 6 makes it good as new). When two of the dice come up with the same number, you get "stunt points" equal to the value of the drama die. You can spend these on a stunt (there are tables with...

  • 12:36 AM - Oofta quoted crazy_cat in post Casting Begins Soon For D&D Movie?
    But a Drizzt cameo has so much potential (I don't like the character - although I have in the past read many of the books, but you can't say he isn't popular! Divisive I'll accept, disliked by some I'd agree, but he is popular by any measure!). His appearance is a plus for those who like the charater, and an Easter egg for those who remember the BG games; he's introduced as a character and if the movie flies a wider FRCU has been hinted at and is ready to go! He even has a massive origin story to call upon if you want (as trilogy worth at least, surely) - although the Drow as per the books are pretty problematic as movie fodder. Being one of the biggest Mary Marty Sues around is also a bit of an issue for some people.

    Baldurs Gate (1): Child of Candlekeep. Female lead (the 'child' exiled from Candlekeep). Vin Diesel as Minsc. Inset 2-4 other favourite BG party members to round out ensemble cast. Cover the first half of BG - leaves space for sequels. Cameo for Drizzt I was in agreement up until that last part. Now I hate it. BOOOOO!

    Or bait and switch us with an A list cast playing the party in episode 1. End with a TPK and then restart with cheaper unknowns as new PCs for episode 2 onwards...The original group would be led by Sean Bean, I assume?

  • 10:46 PM - TrickyUK quoted crazy_cat in post It’s LAUNCH DAY For The Pathfinder 2 Playtest!
    I'm in the UK and preordered the hardcopy 2e playtest from Leisure Games - my order is now showing as fulfilled which i think means it shipped today. Yay!! I ordered from Games Lore. They say that the Hard Cover Rulebook arrived, but not the adventure. As I ordered both, I am waiting on the latter to arrive before both are shipped. Seems odd that all playtest products didn't arrive together.

  • 12:20 PM - William Mize quoted crazy_cat in post The Delays Of Cthulhu
    Cthulhu Britannica: London by Cubicle 7 was due for delivery August 2014. It was late but we got (most of) it - and it was very good; but the final stretch goals are still outstanding. World War Cthulhu: Cold War - again Cubicle 7 is also running long, the main book is delivered but stretch goal books are coming along rather slowly. This was due for delivery April 2016. This leads me to my thoughts on stretch goals: I think they are somewhat useless, and can actually detract from, delay, and in some instances torpedo an otherwise great Kickstarter. The CoC 7th Edition is Patient Zero for this disease. The number of stretch goals were ridiculous, and even Chaosium admitted as such, and just said "We've given you X, but we can't deliver Y and Z, and we're not going to." If you're going to include stretch goals, I would recommend one or two at the most, lean toward the digital (extra scenarios), and even have them somewhat completed before the Kickstarter even begins. I'll also add a Cth...

    You do know you are quoting a post from January 2016 don't you? LOL. I didn't bother to look past January. My bad!
  • 08:02 PM - BrockBallingdark quoted crazy_cat in post Your most anticipated games of 2016?
    The Conan RPG by Modiphius hasn't been KS'd yet - it is in open testing at the moment. I think you are getting it confused with various boardgame Conan things (with/without minis) which have funded and are underway, and a Conan pre-painted minis line which cancelled without funding. Actually I was part of the Conan RPG KS by Modiphius last March. :) The physical books haven't gone out yet but they have released PDF of the Core book (for revisions and error checking) to the backers. I'm crossing my fingers the physical books start going out in March. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/modiphius/robert-e-howards-conan-roleplaying-game?ref=discovery

  • 11:30 PM - Grimstaff quoted crazy_cat in post Your Move? Kickstarter and the Evolution of Game Crowdfunding
    Worth noting that Dwimmermount did actually deliver in the end, albeit very late - James M just went quiet and gave up (for whatever reasons) but Autarch (the publishers) soldiered on and eventually got it out the door. Autarch got *something* out (and this is no knock against them, they by all rights could have just walked away), but it was not exactly what pledgers paid for, it when they expected it. To me, Dwimmermount is a classic example of a Kickstarter that never should have happened. James M. gave us an awesome blog - it was his passion, and varied enough in subject to keep him coming back with near-ridiculous amounts of great content. Then the Kickstarter comes in, and the *hobby* becomes a *job*. So the money gets spent but the work doesn't get done - you can't just walk away from it when you feel like it, like a hobby. In the end, backers got a door prize, a great blog went silent, and James M is likely too embarrassed to show his face in the gaming community again, which is ...
  • 09:38 PM - Desh-Rae-Halra quoted crazy_cat in post Your Move? Kickstarter and the Evolution of Game Crowdfunding
    Chaosiums Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition is my latest running RPG Kickstarter - due in October 2013, somewhat optimistically, and still nothing physical actually delivered, although we do now have some PDFs after Chaosium nearly went bust and were bought out! Also piss poor is the Timewatch Kickstarter - by Kevin Kulp (Piratecat on ENWorld) in partnership with Pelgrane Press! Due in November 2014 and 'The game is designed, playtested, and over 80% written' when seeking funding this has yet to see even a first draft handed over to Pelgrane; and Pelgrane have stepped in on comms (which still aren't exactly brilliant) as things had just gone quiet from KK in the face of backer questions about (the lack of) progress. I really do think companies/people need to think lomg and hard before using Kickstater to fund their projects - because it requires you to engage regularly and honestly with consumers in a way which old traditional 'publicise and sell it when its ready' publishing didn't; and the dam...

    Worth noting that Dwimmermount did actually deliver in the end, albeit very late - James M just went quiet and gave up (for whatever reasons) but Autarch (the publishers) soldiered on and eventually got it out the door. Same thing with Space 1889 (Angus Abranson/Chronicle City) wasnt doing anything, so Cublicle stepped in (German publisher) and things have been working out. Cubicle has been respectful and transparent. Other companies like Conquistador Games who did the "Best Damn Metal Gaming Coins Ever!" delivered last coins in April 2015 (estimated delivery Nov 2013), then changed their name to Artana LLC, but are still using Game Salute (who apparently changed their name to Ship Naked). I wouldnt trust projects coming out of ether of these companies

  • 05:24 PM - Morrus quoted crazy_cat in post CONAN LIVES! Info on the new Conan RPG
    Mongoose D20 can't be licenced as Mongoose no longer hold any licence to make or distribute the game. You wouldn't need to. You have access to the d20 rules and OGC content already. The Conan element has been public domain since 2006 (at least in the UK).
