    Things from the Flood: A Review

    Sequels can be a tricky thing to handle, especially when they promise a darker, edgier tone. Despite its much gloomier tone, however, Things from the Flood manages to avoid difficult-second-album...

    Bree-Land Region Guide: A Review

    In the Lord of the Rings the quaint little town of Bree marked the place where a dangerous journey grew into a true adventure. Now, with the Bree-Land Region Guide it can easily play the same role...

    They did, but apparently the RPG side of things is a little different so they get to keep it going? Games Workshop is an inscrutable beast...

    C7 are also working on an Age of Sigmar game too,...
  4. I agree that the corebook can be a little dense,...

    I agree that the corebook can be a little dense, but I was quite pleased that they manged to get the main rules down to a couple of reference sheets for this starter set.

    Like any mid-ish weight...
  5. WFRPG Starter Set Review: Nailing the Fundamentals

    There are a few fairly simple elements needed to make a solid RPG starter set, and while Warhammer Fantasy RPG 4E’s attempt won’t blow any minds it absolutely nails the fundamentals that new players...

    Seems like the Basic Rules have also been updated to match the latest round of errata. Lots of references to "your spells" changed to "your [CLASS] spells", for example.

    Not wildly significant,...
  7. What's the Best Holiday to Game? Global Edition

    Last week Mike Tresca took an American perspective on the best holidays for dropping fireballs on your friends and family, but how do things fare for those of us living beyond the reach of...

    I was umm-ing and ahh-ing over a big ol' post, but I think this is a better summary than I could come up with.

    In any case, I'm real disappointed in the WW team. I was one of the folks who was...

    Unless they were 12 hours long apiece, just 14 sessions is a pretty stellar pace for rocking through MoN, even the original version.

    Unmasking Masks of Nyarlathotep

    The twisted horrors and blood-crazed cultists of Masks of Nyarlathotep helped define the feel of Lovecraftian roleplaying more than three decades ago, and while this sprawling update weighs heavily...

    I would love this so very much.

    Actually, I've always thought that a tweaked version of D&D 4E could make a great grid-based XCOM-style game.
  12. "Exploding With Excitement": Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000AD Kickstarter

    “When we approached Darren Pearce to write on the core rulebook, he exploded with excitement,” says Russ Morrisey, designer of Judge Dredd & The Worlds of 2000AD and founder of EN World. “I mean...

    I spend a decent amount of time on it last night and this morning. I'm enjoying it for the most part, but I must admit that I'm getting reeaaaalllllly tempted to dial the combat difficulty down to...

    I was super-sick a couple of weeks ago and binged my way through a decent lump of Adventure Time over about three days. Before that I'd only watched a bit of the first series.

    Goddamn, but that...
  15. Delving Beneath the Surface of Runequest: Glorantha

    At first glance it would be easy to dismiss Runequest: Glorantha as just another addition to the pile of fantasy RPGs clogging up the shelves of your local store, but if you delve beneath the surface...
  16. Too Angry to Die: Building a Tanky Barbarian

    This article is the first in a series of guides to building characters in D&D 5E. The plan is to get into some wackier character concepts further down the line, but we’re going to start with...

    Welcome to The Witcher RPG

    There are plenty of interesting ideas and novel approaches to adapting parts of the videogame to the tabletop, but The Witcher is tough as dragonhide and as intimidating as any wraith. But if you...
  18. Open Up New Worlds Of Gaming With The Open Legend RPG

    Many RPGs promise to let us do exactly what we want, but few of them achieve this goal quite as well as Open Legend. With a bit of effort this setting-free system can allow you to build everything...

    Same here.

    It would certainly feel a little weird if the shield had an arbitrary limit on how often it can be used. Perhaps there is an implication that you take some of your downtime in the...

    I also got a chance to play through the demo over the weekend - actually went through it twice with different groups.

    Gut response is that it still feels like Pathfinder.

    It's been streamlined,...

    I wouldn’t expect it to be particularly controversial to say that different systems work better with different types of campaign.

    The core concept of CoC is that the party are investigators -...

    There are some that work best with fairly tight stories, and others that are better when people can freely roam.

    Off the top of my head, mystery games like Tales From the Loop and ​Call of Cthulhu...
  23. Getting Dangerous With The Elite: Dangerous Role-Playing Game

    Some RPGs are suited to telling a tight story, and some work best in a sandbox where players can explore and adventure as they please. The Elite: Dangerous RPG definitely falls into the latter...
  24. Go To Infinity And Beyond With Infinity RPG From Modiphius

    There are some role-playing games that aim to strip out complexity wherever possible - in the rules, in character creation, even in the setting itself. And then there are those like the Infinity RPG...

    Luckily, two of the cons where they'll be showing it off are within about 25 minutes of my house.

    How very convenient.

    PF2 Looking at their FAQ...

    Looking at their FAQ they're still going to be using the OGL, so it's going to be interesting how much this changes.

    EDIT: Just realised that D&D 5E also used the term OGL. Maybe they'll switch...
  27. Looking At Genesys From Fantasy Flight Games

    The quest for a truly universal RPG system has been bubbling away for decades, and while Genesys won't be to everybody's taste it certainly carves out its own niche in the middle-ground between...

    Some of the results here are a little unexpected, though when I think about it they may some sense. I loved XG2E, but I've seen a lot of negative reviews from people annoyed about reprinted material...

    I must admit, I'm not really familiar with VtM and it's setting, so when I was skimming the PDFs the ISIS stuff in the playtest scenario kind of made me do a double-take. I get that some people want...

    I would say there are a few things that separate even a grid-based RPG from a boardgame. The biggest, perhaps, is that RPGs give you much bigger scope for non-obvious solutions - dropping a...

    Warhammer is/was (probably?) the most popular fantasy wargame out there. Like it's sci-fi sister, Warhammer 40k, it differs from other fantasy settings by having a focus on over-the-top, semi-ironic...

    I got to play a few hours of the Discworld RPG with the author at a UK convention, and it worked out pretty well.

    I'm not hugely familiar with GURPS, but it seemed like they stripped out some of...
