RPG Print News – Cubicle 7, Mongoose, Modiphius, and More

The winner this week has to be a tricorder that is also a box set for Star Trek Adventures. So you can play pretend as a Starfleet officer and either cosplay as one or sling dice or both. Very meta. That one is a bit pricy, so a few deals at Miniature Market are covered at the end. In between is a book of GM advice and lots from Modiphius: that tricorder box set, metal Vikings in cyborg space along with a variant d20 game both from Runehammer, and an adventure for Black Void. Warhammer FRPG and Sea of Thieves RPG also get adventures. Finally, Shadowrun - Sixth World is back in a sixth edition and BattleTech gets new alien maps.

The box contains: a digest edition core rulebook, eight Original Series characters to play (and game stats for the USS Enterprise herself), rules reference sheets on the reverse of the Enterprise crew detailing tasks for the various roles on a starship, five original player character sheets for the crew of the USS Lexington NCC-1709 and the starship herself, five twenty-sided dice with a custom captain's tunic design, 10 six-sided Challenge Dice, six Momentum tokens and 26 Threat tokens, and a booklet of three interlinked missions set during the time of Kirk’s five year mission. Viking Death Squad is a world, RPG system, and play resource inspired by the heavy metal 'War Pigs' by Black Sabbath. PCs are Vikings, mortal or immortal, fighting cybernetic horrors and demonic legions. I linked to a review above. The Index Card RPG Master Edition has slowly built a die-hard following of DIY RPG creators and players over the past five years. This newest edition, includes numerous worlds, streamlined D20 rules, and GM know-how, all revised and updated with its latest playtest data, gathered from players all over the world. An article on how to kick off a campaign is linked above. Into the Oblivious Depths is suited for four to six characters, each in the 65-75 character points range and explores the wonders and horrors beyond the Eternal City. The adventure sees the protagonists explore multiple new, exotic, and uncharted worlds. The PCs face challenges and horrors undreamed of, encounter new outlandish, sentient species, and discover what lies beyond the horizon. The PCs are hired by the Tadh Consortium as part of an expeditionary crew to travel the Void aboard the Void Vessel "The Sentinel" and investigate uncharted worlds to find a prospective home for humankind. The rewards of this venture and the change to bring hope to humanity are certain to be worth the risk. Includes four brand new Cosmic worlds as well as new monsters and sentient species with full stats and artwork.
