    Tabletop Playground Free Beta: New Rival to Tabletop Simulator

    Yes, you can do that. In fact, it is possible to assign lone-of-sight values to objects, like player tokens, for instance, and have FOW revealed automatically. There is also a game master mode where you can see everything that is going on and control who sees what. However, my personal opinion...

    Critical Role Critical Role Suspends Broadcasts

    It looks like those expecting one-shots or something similar are on the right path. There was a tweet yesterday from CR, saying they have "some fun stuff planned for the future". It will be probably not an RPG play (or just a simple one-shot), maybe some online video or board game fun - these...

    Critical Role Critical Role Suspends Broadcasts

    Production quality is important, but not as much as actual content, which is what drew me to Critical Role in the first place. After all, the first campaign started pretty low on production quality, but it didn’t prevent them from creating a compelling story. It is a good time to show that...

    Critical Role Wildemount: Most Pre-orders Since D&D Core Rulebooks

    You can already use Critical Role characters in Pillars of Eternity II - they are even voiced by the actors themselves :)

    Critical Role Wildemount: Most Pre-orders Since D&D Core Rulebooks

    So here are a few words why I believe Critical Role is so popular. Mostly, because it is a group of people who are genuine friends and who enjoy playing with each other. It also helps that they are an extremely welcoming group, and you will never see any negativity from them, which tends to draw...

    Shadowrun Cutting Black Sourcebook Review

    It is not technically a metatype, and it is a relatively big spoiler, so you've been warned.

    Shadowrun Cutting Black Sourcebook Review

    The Shadowrun universe has always had countries that never recognised the BRAs - the NAN come to mind, as well as Manchuria and Amazonia, among others. As far as the UCAS and the BRAs are concerned, the story is not disruptive to lore at all and is a (relatively) logical reaction to events in...

    Critical Role Matt Mercer Speaks About The Wildemount Book

    They have already published two books with fan art already and a third one is under way. All have sold well and they are hardly cheap (the standard edition of the latest book is £60 at the moment), so there is obviously demand for this. They also display fan art during their show and have a...

    Shadowrun Cutting Black Sourcebook Review

    I guess Seattle will have to do on its own, though this particular development was heavily hinted in various 5e books, and it was a matter of time before Seattle seceded. I suppose they will rely on heavy corporate presence as counter balance to the surrounding NAN states, something similar to...

    Werewolf: the Apocalypse 5th Edition Trailer

    Well, the very premise of the World of Darkness is that it is a world that resembles ours but much darker. No one claims the World of Darkness is our world, it is just an imaginary version of it. Regarding the different point of view - you can't expect everyone to have your point of view, we are...

    Werewolf: the Apocalypse 5th Edition Trailer

    20th Anniversary Editions are not separate lines but a kind of a revisited edition for each main line (Vampire, Werewolf, Mage, Changeling, Wraith, Dark Ages). Rules and storylines have been cleaned up, the books offer plenty of options which version of the end-gaming events for each line...

    Werewolf: the Apocalypse 5th Edition Trailer

    You are most probably right, it will be a real hassle to co-ordinate across different developers. Still, I’d love to see them try. One of the big advantages I find in Chronicles of Darkness is the option for crossover play, which you could never do in World of Darkness due to balance issues (the...

    Werewolf: the Apocalypse 5th Edition Trailer

    This an interesting point, though. If I remember correctly, and I believe I do, when Paradox acquired the White Wolf IPs from CCP, they said they wanted to do a One World of Darkness, in other words a single shared universe. Since we have only Vampire books released so far, we don’t know if this...

    Werewolf: the Apocalypse 5th Edition Trailer

    It's funny that you mention that, because it was the very idea Chronicles of Darkness (back then named "New World of Darkness") was built on back in 2004. The first edition of Chronicles of Darkness had a separate rule book and everything else simply built upon it, adding rules only when...

    Werewolf: the Apocalypse 5th Edition Trailer

    One quick note here - the very reason why Paradox handed off development of of future Vampire 5e books to Modiphius was the lacklustre books that were initially published. We haven't seen anything come out of Modiphius for Vampire yet, so there isn't really any ground to judge whether quality...
