RPG Print News – Cubicle 7, Mongoose, EN Publishing and More

This week involves travel back to the 70s, 80s, and 90s for inspiration. There are adventures for the world’s oldest roleplaying game and its various versions. So two adventures for D&D, Pathfinder, and Swords & Wizardry. Middenheim is back again, this time for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 4E. Traveller has a new book about classic Traveller aliens, Vampire the Masquerade is back for a fifth edition complete with sourcebooks, and the Awfully Cheerful Engine! has 80s goodness with the core rules and four supplements covering ghosts, tomb raiding, strange things, and space the final frontier. Most excellent.

Lots of blood, swearing, and sex in all these Vampire books. The Camarilla sourcebook contains information on the faction, as well as rules and lore for clan Banu Haqim. Once the mightiest faction of vampires in the world, now it retreats into a maze of neo-feudal conspiracies to protect itself against the deadly threat of the Second Inquisition, struggling to enforce the Masquerade in the face of modern technology. In the Anarch sourcebook, the uneasy truce between Camarillan and Anarch has ended. Claiming the nighttime streets as their own, the Anarchs seek independence from the despotic Elders, by any means necessary. Only the toughest and smartest of self-made vampires will survive. Contains stories and metaplot of the Anarch Movement in modern times, as well as rules and lore for clan Ministry.
