RPG Print News – Heward’s Handy Haversack, Modiphius, and More

This is my hundredth RPG Print News and everything is fantasy this week. That is both profound and really not related to anyone’s real life in any meaningful way. So I included a Heward’s Handy Haversack (only magical on Oerth) made of Silver Dragon scales. D&D falls in love, and Pathfinder 2nd Edition goes Special Edition with a previous title. Modiphius has more Conan - Adventures in an Age Undreamed Of support with two new books and Mork Borg gets a creepy crawly dungeon. Goblins get their own fantasy RPG. Finally, Fantasy Trip gets all the things: playmats, maps, journals, cards, and more.

  • DESCRIPTION: Poster Maps are the Duchy of Dran and the village of Bendwyn, the setting for the intro of Tollenkar's Lair. The Playmats are colorful 24” square playmat with hexes. The last one may be the lair of an octopus (not sure why that would be though). Rumors and Treasures contains 60 rumor cards with ready-to-use adventure ideas, as well as 100 treasure card. Decks of Destiny A contains: Player's Pack (cards, dry erase marker, and a character journal/expanded character sheet, Rumors and Treasures and a Treasures journal, Adversaries cards, 62 hex-shaped cards to quickly build labyrinths, a Labyrinth journal, 13 new sheets of double-sided dry-erase megahex tiles with a storage box, a new drop table printed on the inside lid of the box, 12 character sheet bookmarks, more cards, Octopus Lair Playmat C, Spiral Arena Playmat A, two metal D6, player tuckboxes, boxes of holding, and more. Decks of Destiny B is like A but with Playmat B. Oh, and one of the monsters is an octopus fighter which I assume lairs in the Octopus Lair. It makes more sense now.

That backpack is a winner!!! :-D
I have the earlier, regular non-faux-dragon leather version. It's very nice with lots of storage areas and pockets to carry everything around conveniently. The main section fits four books (the core rulebooks plus an adventure) and a DM screen with no problems, while I put dice in the side compartment, and pencils and notebook in the front compartment. Since another person in the group handles minis, I use the top compartment for snacks.

Legend
The Bog Octopus is a classic monster of TFT; it's a skin-breathing amphibious octopus, with at least prootwaddle level intelligence¹, and capable of rising up upon 3 or more of its tentacles, and wielding weapons with the others. ISTR that one of the adventures has an octopus in a cave lair, and that map would make for a really great fight with it...

1: Prootwaddles were a playable species that couldn't learn talents other than farming; a more extreme example of "joke species" than the DragonLance Aghar (Gully Dwarves).
