RPG Print News – Chaosium, Cubicle 7, Free League, and More

These new RPG products are available in print in October 2020. Ask your favorite local game store to order a copy or order online. The Call of Cthulhu and the Delta Green adventures are perfect for Halloween and the Alien RPG Starter Set can kick off an entire campaign of terror. This week all of the offerings except Alien (but as a franchise also goes back a long way) are from RPGs with long history, some in new rule versions and others harkening all the way back to 1981. Options include core rules and adventures. Hard cover core rulebooks, adventures, and a boxed set await.

Alien RPG Starter Set
  • SYSTEM: Year Zero
  • PRODUCT TYPE: boxed set core rules
  • RETAIL PRICE: $49.99
  • DESCRIPTION: In space, no one can hear you scheme. You can play a cinematic one-shot and in a horrific spray of blood have your PC’s throat cut by a xeno. Or you can go for the long game, setting up campaign play and trying to survive in a blue collar world set in a universe not just indifferent to whether you live or die but perhaps actively hostile. Your fellow humans may be worse monsters than the xenos in the Alien RPG.

Old-School Essentials - Rules Tome (2nd Printing) by Necrotic Gnome
  • SYSTEM: Moldvay and Cook Basic & Expert D&D 1981
  • PRODUCT TYPE: digest-sized hardcover core rulebook
  • RETAIL PRICE: $40.00
  • DESCRIPTION: If you want to play D&D like it’s 1981 but with modern layout and the option for ascending AC, grab a 10 foot pole and a copy of the Old-School Essentials Rules Tome from Necrotic Gnome. Everything needed to play fantasy d20 and it even rhymes. I highly recommend this system and you can read a review as well as read a review of the scenario The Hole in the Oak. Roleplay like it’s 1981.
