RPG Print News – Exalted Funeral, Accidental Cyclops, and More

If you like sea adventuring, there are two RPGs of sea exploring and pirating on the high seas. A hex-crawl about smugglers and adventures for Old-School Essentials and the OSR are available. There are also turtlefolk. Mothership gets an arena based space station. Unique RPGs include a roaring 20s comedy, a dark and gritty setting based on the band Faith No More, and an RPG about playing kids working at a mall. What a great hobby we have.

Note: RPG Print News covers new RPG releases and some classics, reprints, and sales available from retailers. It does not cover products that are only available directly to customers through kickstarter or as print on demand.

The combat rules produce fast and potentially deadly encounters that scale as lone sailors join a crew, that crew acquires a ship, and that ship joins an armada. Rules for hiring retainers and building a business and trade, lots and lots of random tables, and five example adventure sites.

The Ommadonian Ossuary: Deep into the dark depths, an ancient death cult built a cathedral from bones of men and monsters. The cult is gone, but some of the treasures they gathered remain. PCs need to go in, grab some treasure, and get out in time to live. The Cursed Abbey: A small abbey belonging to an order of demon-slaying knights far up in the mountains has been cut off from the world by a most unnatural storm for over thirty years. Two months ago, the storm lifted. A few days ago, every single soul in the nearby village of Griert went missing. Local authorities call on the PCs to investigate.
