RPG Print News – Goodman, Legendary, CMON, Son of Oak, and More

So much d20 fantasy this week including a new world and kingdom event cards for D&D, spell cards for Pathfinder, and Lankhmar and adventures for DCC/MCC RPG. Also, Stargate SG-1 RPG is out and uses the OGL derived from D&D. Deadlands gets a cattle drive from hell adventure and City of Mist and Zombicide Chronicles get supplements. And there is a new world and a new city to explore via new RPGs. The secrets in City of Mist Shadows & Showdowns are especially intriguing and I can’t wait to dive into that supplement.

Nothing speaks to me this week. The SG-1 cover is a turn off for me.


In other news The Modern AGE Mastery Guide by Green Ronin just went up for pre-order. It's a book I'm really looking forward to. Offers alternate ways to play. One of them is diceless which is very intriguing since AGE uses dice to trigger stunts.

Wanderhome is an absolutely delightful storytelling experience, with lovely art to boot. Our group loved it, and I wrote about our session here if you want to learn more about it. It is quite different than most RPGs and so could take some getting used to and not everyone's cup of tea, but delving in to it was very rewarding for us for a session and we will definitively play it again. :)

Shadows & Showdowns by Son of Oak
This is a GM's toolkit book. It contains 312 pages of goodness:
6 new themebooks.
Support material for developing characters further (alternatives, tropes).
Overlooked attractions - some incredible stuff to spice a game.
More movers and shakers - the weird folk on the par with good old antagonist of the corebook.
Alternative campaign concept - you played the mages, now have fun playing witchhunters.

I backed the SG-1 Kickstarter also . . . I don't have an opinion on the game itself yet, as I haven't played or tried to absorb the rules . . . but ALL of the art on the project is awful, cover and interior. It's actually sapped my desire to really dive into the game itself, the art is such a turn-off.

The previous SG-1 RPG, which was based on D&D 3E, used photos from the tv series . . . . and the books were beautiful. Again, not familiar enough with the game itself to judge, but . . . . I wonder why this incarnation didn't go with series photos or some half-decent artwork.

Using actual IP pictures must far more expensive. Also, maybe they weren't simply allowed for some undisclosed reason. There is talk of a reboot.
