Original Adventures Reincarnated #1: Into the Borderlands
5th Edition Adventure
By Goodman Games

The Borderlands. An untamed wild region far flung from the comforts and protection of civilization.

A lone fortified Keep is the onlybastion of Good desperately striving to maintain the forces of Chaos at bay. But Evil is everywhere, lurking in dark caves, fetid swamps, and forlorn forests. Bands of cutthroat brigands and ruthless tribes of humanoids eager to clash with the forces of Good rove the region. The Borderlands hold many secret wondrous locations, and the opportunities for fame, prestige, and fortune are plentiful. But equally abundant are the perils, risks, and challenges to those brave enough to explore the wilds.

Sharpen your swords and axes. Purchase your iron rations and tinderboxes. And don’t forget at least one 10-foot pole. Adventure awaits those with the mettle to confront Chaos in the Borderlands!

This tome is an homage to the origins of Adventure that began decades ago with B1: In Search of the Unknown and B2: The Keep on the Borderlands. Herein you will find high-quality scans from multiple printings of the original first edition adventure modules, plus commentary by such gaming luminaries as Luke Gygax and Mike Mearls. Full fifth edition conversions of both adventures are included, as well as brand new additional adventure locations to further expand and develop the Borderlands. This is a fully playable mini-campaign to start off your new fifth edition adventures, with a distinct old-school vibe.

Infinity RPG
Core Rulebook
By Modiphius

In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity's armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity's fractious forces falter, then all may be lost...

But beyond the terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the human sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientists and adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchants guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercops struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.

For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli's hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science-fiction roleplaying game.

The Art of Symbaroum
Symbaroum RPG Art Book
By Jarnringen / Modiphius

Ever since the launch of the tabletop roleplaying game Symbaroum in Swedish (2014), players and fantasy art lovers have asked for a stand-alone art book; with the international translations into English, French, German and Italian (2015) the requests grew even more frequent. So here it is, The Art of Symbaroum.

The images showing the world and creatures of Symbaroum have been developed in chorus with the written descriptions – the images illustrate the texts as intimately as the texts support the art. This close relationship between art and text can probably be understood in light of the fact that we, the artist and the writers, have created and fantasized together for more than three decades. So, welcome to what is truly our vision; welcome to the world of Symbaroum.

The Art of Symbaroum is a cloth-dressed hardcover book printed on thick, premium quality paper to make the illustrations of Martin Grip justice. Aside from the artwork, the book includes short text excerpts meant to anchor the motifs and portraits in the world of Symbaroum.

Ravensberg
Pathfinder Setting / Adventure
By Christina Stiles Presents

Ravensberg is a horror-themed town setting suitable for 5th-level Pathfinder characters and above. It is generic enough to be placed in any ongoing campaign. The small town lies nestled near a forest of unmistakable evil, wherein lies an ancient structure known as the Black Keep. The fortress is now filled with necromancers and undead, and its darkness taints the surrounding area. Other horrors plague the townsfolk, as well: lycanthropes, a dullahan, a vampire, and a coven of witches.

The villains abound.

But where are the heroes? That’s where your players come in.

Explore this horrific town created by students in a Winthrop University writing class taught by Christina Stiles. By supporting this product, you are aiding the students and faculty of the English Department of Winthrop University, as all collected monies from this Pathfinder version will be donated to the department funds for scholarships and academic travel. The fund's name is the J. Spratt and Sandra Hagler White Endowment of Winthrop University's English Department.

On The Air
Core Rulebook
By Spectrum Games

The spirit of Old Time Radio lives again with On the Air, the storytelling RPG that faithfully emulates the action, excitement and mystery found in the radio programs of the 1930s and '40s. Construct a series, create a sponsor, whip up characters and you're ready to play. Once the series is created, very little prep time is required to play the game, thanks to the narrative structure of the Intention System.

Get ready to engage in an all-new way of narrating your character's actions... and don't forget to promote your sponsor's products to earn the potent Sponsorship Token! Each episode is allowed only a certain number of die rolls in order to depict the tight time restraints of those old programs, so you'd better make every action count!

On the Air is best enjoyed by one Director and between one and three players. You'll need d4s, d6s and d8s.

Hearts in Glorantha 6
RuneQuest/HeroQuest Fanzine
By D101 Games

The long-awaited return of this Glorathan Fanzine, featuring 48 pages of Myths, Interviews, Articles, and Scenarios (systemless, HeroQuest and for RuneQuest 2) in softcover A4 format.

This issue:

The Awakening is a system-less adventure by Scott Crowder, in which the adventurers find themselves in a dream of the Brown Dragon of Dragon Pass. They get to experience first hand some of the dramatic events of the Dragonkill War and work towards the reconciliation of Dragons with the Orlanthi.

God Forgot, by Barry Blatt, gives setting information about these islands in Holy Country. It’s weird and odd, and none too comfortable. Go on, read the bit about the rather unsettling way the islanders use their ruler’s slightest movement as indications of his wishes. This piece reminds me how Glorantha gets wonderfully weird, yet has its own logic based on mythology and magic.

Light and Death. In this HeroQuest adventure, Neil Smith takes us into the murky world of mystic illumination and bridge building in the Lunar Empire.

Memories of RuneQuest 2. I never thought I’d see the day that RQ2 was re-published by Chaosium, but it’s here. In this article old hands shamelessly reminisce about the first Gloranthan RPG.

Ian Cooper Interview. A Q&A with HeroQuest’s Line Editor which goes into his early work with Issaries and The Unspoken Word, as well as his current role and the recently released Red Cow books: The Coming Storm and The Eleven Lights.

Why the Story is the Best is a whimsical yet poignant telling of an Orlanthi Myth by long time HiG contributor Stuart Mousir-Harrison.

The Lightbringers’ Quest is an introductory HeroQuest adventure by Matt Ryan designed to be run in one session with players unfamiliar with Glorantha and/or HeroQuest. And what a scenario it is, putting the players right in the centre of one of the major myths of Glorantha.

Duck Hill is my short old-school adventure for RuneQuest Classic. Don’t be put off by the fact it’s got ducks in it.

Children of the Apocalypse
Savage Worlds Setting
By Happy Monster Press

In the ruins of an ancient city, a band of treasure hunters seeks ancient artifacts to fuel the creations of a powerful Tinker Mage. Armies trade musket fire across rolling hills as pikemen brace to receive a charge of monstrous shock troops. An assassin in the service of the Goddess of Death and Disease sets a gunpowder charge beneath the foundations of a rival church. A wizard faces down a psion in an arcane duel for possession of a trove of ancient texts. All these adventures and more are daily occurrences in the world of Children of the Apocalypse, a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting for Savage Worlds.

Children of the Apocalypse is a high-fantasy, high-theology, early black-powder-era setting taking place five centuries after a modern technological civilization collapsed in a great plague. The plague itself was actually intended as a genetic enhancement to psychic ability, and a few children born in the years following the plague had near-godlike abilities as a result – these children eventually went to war and the nine survivors, now known as the Nine Gods, maintain an uneasy détente.

Lovecraft’s Revenge
Core Rulebook
By Rebel Minis

Are You Ready To Play A Game?

How about a game that'll scare you right out of your skin, a game right from the grave? How about a game that pits you against powers not of this world? Powers that watch from the shadows then slither towards you, from the darkest corners of your perception?

That's Not Fair!

You're right. Lovecraft's Revenge isn't fair. It puts you right into your own Story by horror writer HP Lovecraft. You could explore a deserted town where the doors and windows seem to open themselves. You could scour the university library for clues of a lost tome of Eldritch lore. You could find yourself in some wasteland, miles from home, and face-to-face with monsters that will rip your mind apart just by looking at you. So yes, it's not fair.

Inside Lovecraft's Revenge, you'll find:
* Over a dozen Professions and Attributes making your terror-seeker truly unique.
* A system that rewards or penalizes your characters for their performance.
* Easy to learn game mechanics that compliments the Story, not distract from it.
* Light bookkeeping Campaign system that lets you tie your adventures together.
* Insanity rules that are quick and easy to use, but that will mess with your character's head, and maybe your own!
* Multiple locations that step right out of Lovecraft's stories; cities, haunted towns, colleges, waterfronts, and even graveyeards.
* Face over 30 different Creatures and Deities, from Deep Ones to Ghouls to Shoggoths, and of course, Cthulhu in all his tentacled greatness!
* The Book, a sample adventure to through right into the game.
* All this and much more!

Deadly Dreams
Lovecraft’s Revenge Supplement
By Rebel Minis

Dare To Dream
It takes on a whole new meaning!

Welcome to Deadly Dreams, the first supplement to Lovecraft's Revenge, and gateway to the Dreamlands.

The Dreamlands is a world in of itself, created by countless dreamers over millennia. Within this realm, you'll find reality takes a back seat, offering new and unexpected possibilities.
Inside, you’ll find:​


  • [*=center]· New Attributes, including the ability to use Creature Attributes.
    [*=center]· New Locations, like Ulthar, The Underworld, and The Moon.
    [*=center]· New Creatures and Deities, such as Zoogs, Moon-Beasts, Nightguants, and a particular Deity that enjoys toying with puny humans!
    [*=center]· Three complete Scenarios to play through:

    Pickman's Masterpiece: The famous (or infamous, depending on whom you ask) artist Richard Upton Pickman asks you to track down a recently stolen piece of artwork, fearing any who gaze upon it in the waking world will go insane. Did we mention Pickman is not what he used to be?

    The Lost Cats of Ulthar: A search for a town's missing felines leads to a battle with an ancient enemy from the cosmos.

    Quest for Kadath: Relive Randolph Carter's epic search for the fabled city. Journey in his footsteps, and discover some new ones!

    In addition, you can use these rules to run games outside of the Scenarios, building your own, and allowing you to explore all over the Dreamland.

Welcome to the world of Deadly Dreams…

Rise to Nobility
1-6 players, ages 13+, 50-100+ minutes
By Final Frontier Games

Five years after the events of Cavern Tavern, where a fragile peace was brokered between The Five Realms, the High Queen Tabita Orestes has ordered a new city to be built. The city of Caveborn will be the capital of the Five Realms, a place where all the races will learn to live together in harmony, with the main purpose being to bring them closer and prevent another war.

The Queen needs to keep the alliance between the races and ensure that Caveborn is peaceful and prosperous. To that end, a Settlers Council has been formed with Berk the Town Clerk as its chairman — but Berk is getting old and needs a successor. Are you that person?

Rise to Nobility is a worker (dice) placement game set in the same fantasy world as Cavern Tavern. You each own a small piece of land in the newly built city, and your job is to rise from anonymity, make your way to the title of lord, and take over the head seat at the Stone Council.

You can achieve this by upgrading your land and increasing its value, satisfying the demands of the settlers' council, attracting and housing as many settlers as you can, accommodating their needs, finding them jobs, and helping them develop from apprentices to guild masters, thus insuring you have people in high places all around the city of Caveborn.

John Company
1-6 players, ages 14+, 90-180+ minutes
By Sierra Madre Games

Over its 250-year history, the British East India Company grew to become one of the most influential commercial and political organizations in the world. Its profits catapulted the British Empire to global dominance and shaped the fate of some of the world's great nations, but its ascent was anything but easy. The Company was filled with diverging interests and struggled constantly at home and abroad.

John Company attempts to tell the story of the British East India Company from the inside out. Players will steer their dynasties through the company's history, vying for position, power, and prestige. The goal of the game is simple: Use the Company and the Company's trade to secure your place in society back home. To this end, you guide your scions through their careers, exchanging favors for positions in London or plush colonial posts. Players collectively control the Company, facing tough budgetary decisions and conflicting interests. Should a Governor conduct a campaign to expand company holdings or invest in his region's infrastructure? Perhaps the honest tax revenues would be better diverted to expand his summer estate back home...

As the game continues, the Company may face open rebellion in India or outright failure as it grapples with increasingly bold attempts at regulation from the British government. It's even possible that the Company's trade monopoly will be revoked, leaving the players to form and operate their own trading firms. Each game offers a huge range of possibilities, informed chiefly by the decisions the players make. In addition, players can tailor their experience by using one of the three tournament scenarios that cover the Early, Mid, and Late Company that can be played in about 90 minutes. The game also offers a full campaign game that will take players from 1720 to 1857 in an evening.

Taking its inspiration from Phil Eklund's seminal Lords games, John Company offers Greed Incorporated by way of Republic of Rome — and with only sixty cards and multiple scenarios, John Company is one of the most accessible SMG offerings to date.

Bios Megafauna (Second Edition)
1-4 players, ages 12+, 90-180+ minutes
By Sierra Madre Games

Bios: Megafauna starts where the predecessor game Bios: Genesis left off, with the invasion of the land on the daybreak of the Phanerozoic eon. Starting as either a plant, mollusk, insect, or vertebral skeletal type, your flapping, paddling, and squawking carnivores and herbivores make a beachhead on one of the drifting continental plates in the Cambrian, Their struggle for terrestrial dominance may eventually include language-based consciousness. Although this achievement elevated a certain mammal species to notoriety, in your game things may occur differently.

This second edition of Bios: Megafauna is an evolutionary descendant of American Megafauna but as a part of the Bios series of games it is linked to the game Bios: Genesis. It plays well independently but if you have both games you can let the end state of a game of Bios: Genesis affect the starting state of a game of Bios: Megafauna. A successor game, called Bios: Origins (which would be a descendant of Origin), is planned to cover the events of the Quaternary period including the rise of ideas and technology.

Each player, playing as 1 of 7 unique goblins, takes turns visiting and building various locations in and around their dungeon. From flame throwing turrets, to sharkodile moats, to poison traps, players must work semi-cooperatively to build each location to perfection before the King's royal guard shows up.

If all three primary defenses are constructed before the King's Royal Guard arrives, the Loyal goblin players win the game. If the Royal Guard reaches the dungeon before that happens, the hidden Spy will win.

Get The MacGuffin
2-11 players, ages 8+, 5-10 minutes
By Looney Labs

As popularized by Alfred Hitchcock, the "MacGuffin" is the thing that everyone wants and is trying to get. Examples include the Holy Grail, the Maltese Falcon, and the briefcase in the movie Pulp Fiction.

The game Get the MacGuffin is a quick and humorous deduction game involving hand management and player elimination. The goal is to be the last player with cards. The player with the MacGuffin card will frequently win the game, but holding onto that card can prove quite difficult! Also, because there are 23 cards in the deck and players are always dealt an equal number of cards, there will always be some cards that are not in play. Figuring out which cards are missing is part of the strategy!

Who has the MacGuffin? Will the Assassin take out The Crown? What did the Garbage Collector find in the trash? What will The Thief steal, and from whom? To the shrewd, all may become known, but sometimes all you can do is Shrug.

Anatomy Fluxx
2-6 players, ages 12+, 5-30+ minutes
By Looney Labs

Fluxx is a card game in which the cards themselves determine the current rules of the game. By playing cards, you change numerous aspects of the game: how to draw cards, how to play cards, and even how to win.

At the start of the game, each player holds three cards and on a turn a player draws one card, then plays one card. By playing cards, you can put new rules into play that change numerous aspects of the game: how many cards to draw or play, how many cards you can hold in hand or keep on the table in front of you, and (most importantly) how to win the game.

Anatomy Fluxx takes players deep into the human body, and from "Bones" to "Blood Vessels", the game is packed with all the body bits that keep you ticking. Be on the lookout for Virus, Mutation, and Bacteria Creepers that can send you to your knees! The game also includes two learning rules to get your brain in gear with anatomical trivia. Anatomy Fluxx is for external use only!

Lost Colossus
Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago Supplement
By Osprey

Long ago, the great Colossus of Argantheon stood upon one of the outer islands, its vast, outstretched arm pointing the way to the Crystal Pool, or so the ancient texts claim. Then, during some forgotten war, the Colossus was shattered, and its parts flung across the Archipelago, to lie in forgotten ruin.

In this expansion for Frostgrave: Ghost Archipelago, players lead their warbands through a series of interlinked scenarios in a race to discover the secrets of the Colossus. Along the way, they will encounter new monsters, discover new treasures, and even recruit a few new specialist warriors to their cause. Perhaps, if they are successful, the knowledge they obtain will help point them towards the ultimate treasure!

Battle Hymn Vol 1: Gettysburg and Pea Ridge
1-2 players, 45-480+ minutes
By Compass Games

Battle Hymn Vol. One includes two games: Gettysburg: The Tide Turns and Pea Ridge: The Struggle for Missouri.

Battle Hymn is a new brigade-level game system that simulates the chaos of the America Civil War using a simple activation system combined with a detailed combat system. The system’s designer, Eric Lee Smith, originated the “chit-pull” activation system in his game “Panzer Command” and later used it in “Across Five Aprils,” Battle Hymn’s forerunner, both published by Victory Games. Units are organized by command, usually divisions, and activate for movement when the command’s activation marker is picked from the cup. The system uses traditional mechanics for movement, with units differentiated by type, but adds a level of detail to combat that feels almost miniatures like. In fact, the system is designed for easy conversion to miniatures. When one side has the initiative they decide when their combat phase occurs, without it, you don’t know when it will happen.

Patton’s Vanguard: The Battle of Arracourt, 1944
1-2 players, 120-240+ minutes
By Revolution Games

As the summer of 1944 drew to a close and Combat Command A of the American 4th Armored Division passed through the French town of Arracourt the war seemed all but over. It seemed as if nothing could stop the Americans from forcing their way across the German border and reaching the Rhine River. The weather, however, was rapidly deteriorating and Allied air reconnaissance failed to detect a counteroffensive by the German 5th Panzer Army. The stage was set for the largest clash of armor on the western front until the Battle of the Bulge.

Patton’s Vanguard consists of two quick-playing four turn scenarios depicting the German attempt to drive the Americans from the German border. The first scenario pits two inexperienced German panzer brigades against a confident and veteran Combat Command A. The German side has more armor, including the superior Panther tank, and the poor weather generally favors them, but the American side has more artillery as well as better tactics and leadership. The second scenario pits the experienced German 11th Panzer Division against Combat Command A and the newly arrived Combat Command B, now hampered by restricted fuel supplies. In each scenario both players will be challenged to determine whether it is better to simply attack, or spend valuable time attempting to maneuver in continually changing weather conditions before attacking. Fast, furious, and chess-like, this is a game for players who love concentrated action!

Into the Borderlands is a solid book, I'm glad I bought it and plan to run the 5E versions included in it very soon. Art was on point, but Goodman Games is pretty good about that so it was expected.

Pretty much, they are 'newer' but don't do anything different than the originals do. They did add some things that were not in the original adventures, but those are more 'side areas' that were never covered and don't affect it if you want to use the originals as they were back then. The side areas are extra maps, not really additions onto the originals.

The layout is nice, though it will be nice if they put out just the redone 5E versions in pdf, but not sure if/when that will happen. The interviews at the front are interesting and informative.

My hope is they do the palace of the silver princess eventually, could be a great addition like these are.

The palace would be awesom! Especially if they include the redacted version and or the orinmgjnal authors version.

Certainly hitting stores in the UK this week and I saw a couple of friends talking about getting a copy in a US store over the weekend, so yes. Drop the place you pre-ordered from a line and chase it up!

Ack... I ordered it directly from Goodman. Oh well, guess I'll just wait. I think it's a little deceptive on their part though to call it a pre-order. It kind of comes with the expectation that it will be shipped out to me and others who pre-ordered at the same time, or even ahead of the ship to store date. Minor gripe I guess if it is worth waiting for.
