RPG Print News – Free League and More

The Blade Runner RPG is here for deep roleplaying and facing difficult choices. D&D gets an adventure. Vast Grimm using the Mörk Borg system is dark and grim in an 80s metal kind of way and the core rulebook is supported with a screen and a book of adventures. There are also lots of dice options, including four Vast Grimm themed sets with spellbook boxes and lore cards. Sundial Games has a space dice set and an unusual calendar/solo adventure played daily throughout the year.

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.

Not a beer and pretzels RPG but it isn't meant to be. PCs increase in ability withs a push and pull dual mechanism: Promotion Points and Humanity Points. Promotion Points net LAPD training, specialized gear, and possible pay raises. They make life better and the job easier. Humanity Points raise skills.

Did Gale Force Nine lose their license to create and sell D&D products? Their landing page doesn’t have the D&D banner anymore and the store doesn’t lost any products now.

They had been in a legal tussle....I think GF9 sued WotC, but I thought it was settled out of court. Not sure where they are at today (searching reveals nothing new).


Herr Doktor
So, those minis aren't actually new. They've been around for a long time. Are you saying they issued a new run (since the original batches were limited)?
