RPG Print News – Mongoose Publishing, Legendary Games, and More

Dungeons & Dragons has reached the point where you can now have Hellboy fight ringwraiths using one RPG system and actually arrive at an empirical answer of who would actually win. My inner child rejoices. And on top of that is more mundane rule support of new class options, magic items, spells, monsters, and more. Plus fey adventures and support and epic level play for all those campaigns out there that have hit 20th level and just can’t stop. I have to admit that the moon dog on the cover of The Dragon's Hoard - Issue #16 looks pretty cool and should totally team up with Hellboy before he takes on the Witch-King. The moon dog can bite the ankle and Hellboy can punch the face.

If all of that awesome isn’t enough, other RPGs get support this week as well. Both Traveller and The Witcher get additional support with a setting as well as PC and subsector sheets and details on magic respectively.

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.

Horns of the Hunted | Faerie Mysteries by Legendary Games
  • SYSTEM: Pathfinder 2nd Edition
  • PRODUCT TYPE: softcover adventure/softcover supplement
  • RETAIL PRICE: $12.99/$13.99
  • DESCRIPTION: Horns of the Hunted is designed for 6th level characters that features the fey. The PCs, taming the wilderness and forging their kingdom, hear disturbing tales from woodsmen and trappers of a strange and ferocious hunting party ranging far and wide beneath the leaves of the Gnarled Forest. The PCs are called upon by Myvenwy, a unicorn warden of the wood, to defeat this peril. Faerie Mysteries explores the influence of fey creatures and the faerie realms on PCs’ campaign world. It is not so much about monsters and magic as it is about how the influence of the fey can change the feel and flow of a campaign. It balances game rules with explorations of fey creatures' mythological origins and role in real-life history and legends to make the fey different, to make them strange, unpredictable, and menacing in turn. This supplement complements Horns of the Hunted well.
