Heavy Metal Thunder Mouse
Core Rulebook (FATE)
By Shoreless Skies Publishing

Heavy Metal Thunder Mouse is the tabletop roleplaying game of mice and their motorcycle clubs!

You and your friends make your mice, found your club, and hit the streets. These are mice with the gusto to build their own motorcycles and set off into an intimidating world where they are outsized, but never outclassed.

HMTM uses the rules of Fate to tell stories about the drama of city mice and their motorcycle clubs. It's an RPG that works best with 2-5 players (plus the GM). It's fit for episodic play (sessions last about 3-4 hours) and epic campaigns!

Your stories are set in Thunder City, USA. For small creatures existing in a place which doesn’t belong to them, these stories will be filled with the drama of their lives, and the trouble, both inside and outside, of a biker gang. Will your gang be Robin Hood-like doers of good, springing cheese from unwatched refrigerators and delivering it to needy widows, or will you be thugs and thieves exploiting the weak? Your mouse, your bike, and your gang all belong to you and the stories you tell at your table.

Throw on your cut, have a nibble of cheese, and fire up the engines.

In a world full of magic, what spells and powers have these beings uncovered and how might your characters make use of that power?

Entirely compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, 101 Desert Spells expands the spell lists of casters in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Advanced Class Guide, the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Advanced Player’s Guide and Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Ultimate Magic.

The World of Greyhawk (1e)
Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition Setting
By Wizards of the Coast

So the players have been complaining that the campaign is too dull, eh? Not enough detail? Why is this country at war with its neighbors? How can trade routes exist with all those wandering monsters? Most importantly, why do all of those unsacked, unlooted dungeons and ruins stand so close to the one big city all of the adventurers in the world hail from?

Rejoice, Dungeon Masters, and relax! All of these questions can be answered by following the example of the volume in your hands. The World of Greyhawk is here, and is suitable for use as the backdrop of a new campaign without changes; or, as an alternative, city, country or geographical descriptions can be used to fill in details for existing campaigns.

The World of Greyhawk is in the form of a gazetteer written by a historian native to the region, and as such includes the calendar systems used by the peoples of Oerth, a history of the major nations over the last thousand years, a discussion of climate in the different regions of the world, and even an appendix listing many runes and symbols (and their meanings) which are found in ancient and magical writings.

The Journey to Norumbega
Colonial Gothic Adventure
By Rogue Games

1559: a time of discovery and exploration.

In the New World, an ancient power sleeps, awaiting the stars to align in order to rise again.

Are you Ready?

It has been 500 years since the Old World last had contact with Norumbega. Is it a city of magic and gold, or of terror and death? The time has come, the stars have aligned, and a new cycle begins.

THAT WHICH HAS SLEPT STIRS.

Almost 50 years before the founding of Popham, and 30 years before Roanoke, the New World remains a vast place of mystery. No one knows what this land hides, or who—or what—waits in the shadows watching and hunting. There is a dark power that sleeps here, and its awakening will set great and terrible events in motion.

What you learn there may be something you wish you never knew.

Assuming, that is, you survive your journey to the New World to discover it…

Michael LaMonica, author of French Revolutions for Beginners and The Ultimate Age of Discovery Guide: Renaissance France, brings the young New World to life in a time and place not usually depicted in roleplaying games. Focusing on early modern French Atlantic history, well before the American Revolution, this mega-adventure focuses on locations and legends you are not likely to have ever experienced.

Norumbega.

The Journey to Norumbega includes everything you will need to run this pulse-pounding epic adventure. The action does not stop here, however, as plenty of material is provided for you to continue adventuring in the pre-colonial period of Colonial Gothic, and to create your own mysteries in the New World.

Dark Souls The Card Game
1-4 players, ages 12+, 45-60+ minutes
By Steamforged Games

Dark Souls: The Card Game is a cooperative deck evolution card game for 1-4 players. Players must explore the Encounters around them, defeating a myriad of enemies to gain Souls and Treasure.

They must use these to evolve and adapt their deck to better fight their enemies. When the players are ready, they must challenge the powerful bosses that lie within.

The players must walk a narrow path, however, since their decks allow them to attack their enemies, but also represent their health. Decks are only refreshed when the players rest at the bonfire, so players must defeat their enemies while husbanding their strength for the greater challenges ahead.

Thinking quickly and adapting to the enemy’s attacks is key for survival. A misstep can be fatal, but the rewards of success are great. Adapt your deck, evolve your strategy, and prepare to die.

But even with your mind fractured and broken, your investigation does not end here. In Dim Carcosa, you are not defeated when you have horror equal to or greater than your sanity.

Gangster City
1-6 players, ages 10+,
By Huch!

Can you solve the cases presented to you in Gangster City, preferably before the other detectives do so and show you up? The game includes a deck of 54 case cards, and each case card identifies elements about the case that you must discover; specifically, each case card indicates the suspect's profession (entertainer, scientist, thug), choice of weapon (revolver, knife, syringe), scene of the crime (theater, street, hotel room), and motive (money, love).

At the start of the game, each player takes a card at random and faces it away from themselves in a plastic stand. Three cards are revealed face up. On a turn, you can either take a face-up card or the top card from the deck, or you can attempt to guess your suspect's characteristics. When you take a card, you hold it up next to your case card, then the other players tell you how many characteristics they have in common. You then place this card in front of you, rotating it so that the number on the outer edge of the card shows how many characteristics they share (0-3).

When you guess, if you're correct, you discard the case card and place a new one in the stand; if you're wrong, you continue the game as normal next turn. The first player to correctly solve two cases wins!

The player who fishes fabulously and secures the most valuable haul prevails over the other players and wins the game.

Sonar
2-4 players, ages 8+, 30+ minutes
By Matagot

Time for an underwater game of cat-and-mouse, with each of the two teams in Sonar competing to be the first to deal two points of damage to the other. Do that, and you win the game instantly.

In detail, Sonar includes four pairs of maps, and each team takes the same maps in their color. A team can be one or two players, and with two players on a team, each player takes a different role: Captain or Radio Operator. (A one--person team handles both roles.) A divider separates the teams, and each Captain marks their starting location on the map.

On a turn, the Captain calls out an action, typically moving their sub one space north, south, east, or west. When they do this, they call out a direction, mark their new location, and add one energy to their ship's register. The Radio Operator on the other team notes the movement of this sub on a plastic sheet, and through deduction and trial-and-error tries to determine exactly where the opposing sub might be on the map.

Instead of a moving, a Captain can also:​


  • [*=center]Use sonar: Erase two energy from your register; the opposing team must reveal their row or column.
    [*=center]Go silent: Erase three energy from your register; move your sub, but don't gain energy and don't tell the opponents which direction you're moving.
    [*=center]Fire a torpedo: Erase four energy from your register; call out coordinates in your quadrant (e.g., F6); if the opponents are on that space, they take a point of damage.
    [*=center]Surface: Announce your location to the opposing team, then erase your previous path on your map; you can't cross your own path during the game, so sometimes you need to surface in order not to box yourself in.

You can have at most four energy in reserve, so you need to manage movement and the other actions carefully so that you'll be able to fire at the opponents once you know where they are — ideally without being torpedoed in response!

Entropy: Worlds Collide
2-4 players, ages 12+, 10-40+ minutes
By Rule & Make

Entropy: Worlds Collide is a competitive card game of risk, deception and action management for 2 to 4 players.

The game is a remake of its predecessor, Entropy.

Multiple parallel worlds have collided and you play as one of six characters jettisoned from their world into a place called the Nexus. Each character's world has been shattered into four separate shards that when pieced together forms a complete panoramic vista of their world.

Through the use of unique character abilities and special actions, players must find shards of their reality and be the first to piece them back together in order to save their world and return home.

Each turn, players select a single action from the six they have available, keeping it hidden from their opponents. All players then reveal their chosen action at the same time.

Playing the best action at the right time won't be easy. Should two or more players select the same action, a "Clash" occurs and none of those players will be able to perform their action.

Take risks, deceive and outwit your opponents to save your world, and earn your right to return home.

Empires & Alliances – World War One Across Europe
1-4 players
By Compass Games

Empires and Alliances is a strategic level simulation of the First World War. Players command the Central Powers and Allied forces that fought in Europe from 1914 to 1918. The map runs from the French Atlantic ports to Moscow and Rostov in the east. It includes St. Petersburg in the north and Italy and Greece (and the portion of the Ottoman Empire that encompasses modern day Turkey) in the south. There are off-board Boxes for the Caucasus and the Middle East.

The basic unit is the corps with a few divisions. The armies set up in their historical mobilization sectors.

There is a 1914 scenario which is played on all fronts. The Germans have to contend with a Russian advance as well as concentrating on the French. There is a nine-turn 1918 scenario where the Germans need to try to win quickly before American reinforcements overwhelm them. This scenario introduces tanks, stosstruppen, and air units. Then there is the four-year Campaign Game. Barring a quick victory in 1914, both players settle in for a war of attrition to exhaust their opponent.

Chariots of Rome
2-8 players, ages 13+, 45-120+ minutes
By Victory Point Games

Rome, 10 BC: Caesar Augustus has erected a mighty obelisk in the center of the Circus Maximus in tribute to his conquest of Egypt. Banners of the Red, White, Green, and Blue factions wave in the stands as the fans cheer on their favorite drivers and teams. Soon, the thunder of numerous quadriga, four-horse-drawn chariots, will roar as they race at breakneck speeds. Only the whims of the gods and the skill of the drivers, or aurigae, will determine the victor.

Chariots of Rome is a competitive, chariot-racing board game for 2 to 8 cunning drivers set in ancient Rome's grand stadium, the Circus Maximus. Each player controls a unique charioteer competing on the giant track for two or more laps. You can also play with up to four teams of two chariots, each representing a different Roman faction.

But there is more to winning the laurel wreath of victory than just handling dangerous corners! Charioteers can whip and ram their opponents to hinder them during the race (to the crowd’s delight). The gods are watching, too, along with the tens of thousands in the crowd, and they may be inclined to influence the race in their favor!

So strap yourself into your chariot, ready your whip, and pay tribute to Caesar in Chariots of Rome!

I will have to look into Starfarer 2250, as I thought nothing new was being released for the BRP system once the latest CoC edition was released.

I purchased the first couple of book from Cubicle 7 for 5e Middle-earth and after seeing the link above, ordered the 4 I missed and preorder the other 2. Thanks for the reminder!

Out of curiosity, does anyone know the stats for the high elves of Rivendell?
+2 wis, +1 to two others. They get most typical elf things plus a few more things: can see invisible creatures, proficiency to corruption, immune to frightened from undead, they always convert a point of temporary shadow to permanent shadow when healing corruption (before the normal stuff), weapon profs, prof in artisan tool.

I haven't seen my local game store carry much middle-earth stuff other than the first 2 books. Impulse Amazon buy from my hotel room when I ordered after seeing the weekly post on new stuff. Probably could have waited when I got home in 3 weeks since I won't be there when it arrive anyway.

Physical copies of Rivendell for AiME won't be out for a while anyway. It was just put up for pre-order by C7 last week. It is in this article because the pdf for it is available now with your pre-order. If you ordered from Amazon, you may want to make sure it was not the TOR version of the book that you bought.

Thanks for the heads up! It was the 5e version for 2 of the books with releases later this year. The others were books already released that Amazon shipped today.
