Glimmering Crypt of the Ioun King by Planet X Games
  • SYSTEM: Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition
  • PRODUCT TYPE: softcover adventure
  • RETAIL PRICE: $23
  • DESCRIPTION: Designed for a group of 5th-7th level characters with equal opportunities for roleplaying, problem solving and hack-n-slash. Classic role-playing adventure with 5E roleplaying style and a healthy dose of world-building and support material. One half adventure and one-half weird gazetteer, this module is jam packed with faceless ooze priests and bubbling gelatinous horrors. Carnivorous sentient fungi grown to monstrous size in massive corpse gardens no human eye has ever seen. Eldritch stone plinths jutting from impossible depths and mold-eating albino prophets. Ossuaries turned oracles and scabrous undead things scrambling around in the dark. Psychedelic mists hanging over ooze farms and ancient things sleeping deep within flooded causeways.

Scritch Scratch by Chaosium
  • SYSTEM: Call of Cthulhu
  • PRODUCT TYPE: module
  • RETAIL PRICE: $9.99
  • DESCRIPTION: Terror lurks within the gloomy woodlands surrounding a sleepy English Village. For two to six players and can be played in one or two sessions. Set in the modern-day, in a quiet valley somewhere in the north of England, this adventure concerns the demise of an age-old tradition in the quaint village of Muscoby—and the consequences of forgetting the Old Ways. Includes six pre-generated investigators. Works as an introduction to Call of Cthulhu while also being a suitably mysterious and horrific evening of fun for more experienced players.
46 static protocol.JPG

STATIC Protocol by Arc Dream Publishing
  • SYSTEM: Delta Green RPG
  • PRODUCT TYPE: module supplement
  • RETAIL PRICE: $19.99
  • DESCRIPTION: Enhances Impossible Landscapes, a campaign adventure series, by collecting even deeper research from its sprawling timeline. Agents can piece together these fragments as they pursue secrets they may regret about the King in Yellow. It first touched the stage in the dying light of the 19th century and has arisen again and again to bring to human souls the bitter satisfaction of despair. Delta Green, a conspiracy dedicated to stopping unnatural terrors, enacted the STATIC Protocol as a ruthless response to the threat of The King in Yellow. Gathered together are secrets of otherworldly power. Of murder and memory that lengthen like the shadows cast by sinking suns. Of an invitation to a masquerade that never ends and is the end of all things. Of the bitter truths of Carcosa, The King in Yellow, and the Yellow Sign.
46 sigil & shadow.JPG

Sigil & Shadow by Osprey Publishing
  • SYSTEM: d00Lite system
  • PRODUCT TYPE: digest sized hardcover rulebook
  • RETAIL PRICE: $35
  • DESCRIPTION: Set in a mirror of the modern world, this game of urban fantasy and occult horror sees PCs take on the roles of illuminated heroes and shadowed monsters to face the rising tide of supernatural forces. Ancient nightmares lurk behind the closed doors of board rooms, entities from beyond time prowl the city streets, forgotten rituals are reborn as viral memes. Focuses squarely on the story rather than the mechanics - who the characters are and what they do, not how they do it. Easy to adopt to any mythos, campaigns can be built around a wide range of plots, with PCs taking the role of anything from paranormal investigators and monster hunters to members of occult cabals or secret societies.
46 cocaine & alligators.JPG

Cocaine & Alligators by Exalted Funeral
  • SYSTEM: Troika! Numinous Edition
  • PRODUCT TYPE: softcover supplement
  • RETAIL PRICE: $15
  • DESCRIPTION: 36 Backgrounds, a short adventure, and a bunch of wild stuff based on actual Florida Man headlines and the author's experience living in Florida. This may be the greatest supplement for RPGs ever produced. Maybe. At the very least you can bring this to your next game and ask your GM if you can use one of the backgrounds as inspiration. If your GM asks why, just say that every game needs Cocaine & Alligators.

Works 60% of the time, every time
Just as a general heads up for people: The Delta Green single adventures, like the one above, seem to get collected into compilation hardcovers once 4-6 get published. So, if you're interested in more than one, it kinda makes more sense to wait for a nice big hardback book (plus it's cheaper than buying them all separately).

Damnit. They got me. Bought Sigil & Shadow. This will be the fifth product from Osprey in about a year that I have been lured into purchasing with no ability to play and Seventh product overall in the last four years. Whatever they are doing over there it is working on me.

I can't disagree. Their digest sized goodness just works for me. They are great looking books so you can always browse and enjoy the art I suppose.

I play a bit of skirmish miniatures games and they just have the best mix of quality and price on those products. Their plan is clear, make simple rules for miniatures agnostic games. They have a game for every type of miniature you already own. Brilliant.

Osprey has had a very good selection in the past 5 years. I've bought several of their games. Frostgrave, Broken Legions, Gaslands, Romance of the Perilous Lands and Reality's Edge.
Romance of the Perilous Lands is very cool. The author has a great blog and has made a ton of fun rules lite games. Trollish Delver I love Burrows & Badgers. The miniatures are fantastic and the game rules are very unique with a setting that is just strait up Redwall.
