“Enter the next thrilling cosm for Torg Eternity! Tharkold has been a mess since Day One, and the situation only devolved as the war moved into its first year. With the death of High Lord Kranod, his Darkness Device and the entire cosm are now up for grabs. Rather than improve the circumstances for Core Earth resistance, this turn has made the situation even more dire and desperate. Kranod’s lethargic advance after the failures of the initial invasion limited the pressure on Russia and fostered a tentative alliance that did much to limit potential counter-offensives from the Delphi Council. Between the Blasted Land, the Mayhem Bloc, and the Wolflands… this ain't Hell, but it might as well be. Explore the unique Psionic and Magic abilities of Tharkold. Scavenge for high tech gear and hope that it works. Support a human resistance against literal demons. Navigate the violent repercussions of a three-way war between Jezrael, Thratchen, and President Volkov (who might be on your side). Survive - if you can - a cruel and ruthless wasteland. Welcome to Tharkold, Storm Knights. It is a reality of Domination, Ferocity, and Pain, and that's just the start...”

Adventure Presents: Tartarus Gate from Rebellion Unplugged
Adventure Presents is a new RPG series from 2000 AD and Judge Dredd publishers Rebellion. Each issue is a stand-alone magazine with a unique story and characters, from some of the most exciting RPG designers and artists in the industry. For our grand opener Adventure is proud to present Tartarus Gate, a game of sci-fi horror written by Grant Howitt & Chris Taylor, and illustrated by Pye Parr. It’s the year 2130. You are an unpaid intern aboard the transport ship Charon, entrusted with shepherding cargo from Earth to the Tartarus Gate Waystation. You spend most of your time in suspended animation and are occasionally awoken by Assisti, the ship’s AI, to solve problems – replacing fuses, mopping up spills, unplugging things and plugging them in again, the usual. Things could be worse. Things could be much worse. Set on an isolated ship in deep space, Tartarus Gate is The Office meets cosmic horror, from the designers of Spire and Honey Heist. Visual feeds with the lower decks have gone down. Something is moving. You’re six months’ travel from the nearest help. And you really need to impress your employer if you want to be made permanent.”

The Legends of Omeria Starter Set is interesting. I would have never thought of a 3PP starter set for D&D 5e. Not likely to get it, but I'm interested in what it has to offer.
I'm in the same boat, I'd never thought of it. Thinking on it I could see doing starter sets. To that end, doing a starter set for some of the larger 3PP settings makes sense to me.

I'll blame it on not having finished my coffee yet, but I can't for the life of me parse what "3PP" means?

Edit: Read back over it above and still don't get the context. Also wanted to agree that it's a good looking starter set.

Sorry. 3PP is a Third Party Publisher. In RPG, it's generally a publisher of OGL content.

Thanks, I just couldn't figure it out. I now feel a bit dense. :) I'll blame it on age, and having been a gamer since the spring of 1978 tied to having to learn way to many military and government related acronyms over the decades. I think I'm just totally saturated mentally anymore when it comes to acronyms. :) I've heard the term many times of course.

I've backed the Journal d'Indochine. A CoC campaign in which all of the male characters are members of the French Foreign Legion certainly would be interesting. It would also provide a great explanation as to why the characters come from all over the globe.

I really liked the publisher's last CoC project, so I backed this one (and I'm glad they've made enough to do an offset print run this time).
