RPG Print News – SoulMuppet, Exalted Funeral, and More

Dungeons & Dragons Fifth Edition squeezes in this week with a screen, dice, and artbook. Ultraviolet Grasslands is back in a second edition and I ordered the six foot map. SoulMuppet Publishing has support for both Best Left Buried and Orbital Blues as well as a new RPG. Vampire: The Masquerade 5th Edition gets a supplement, there is an adventure for Mörk Borg and a new fantasy RPG as well. Finally, Free RPG Day 2023 RPGs are still available from Noble Knight while supplies last (some basic rules apply to getting copies).

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 only through kickstarter or as print on demand.

  • SYSTEM: unique
  • PRODUCT TYPE: hardcover core rulebook and setting/map/screen
  • RETAIL PRICE: $50/$12/$25
  • DESCRIPTION: In the Ultraviolet Grasslands and the Black City, the PCs journey on a strange trip through mythic steppes in search of lost time and broken space. Basically a psychedelic heavy metal quest. The second edition is bigger with streamlined character rules and an expanded array of caravan options, vehicles, and equipment. A brand-new bestiary section offers a menagerie of friends and foes, and revamped spells offer more magical tactics for PCs. There is also a table of 50 pets. Finally, there’s an expanded map featuring the whole Circle Sea region although I went ahead and bought the Grand Map 2 of the whole setting which is six feet long! The Referee Screen is also available for GMs who have something to hide.

In Calamity's Wake | The Lost and the Jammed | All That Glitters by SoulMuppet Publishing
  • SYSTEM: Best Left Buried/ unique/Orbital Blues
  • PRODUCT TYPE: softcover supplements
  • RETAIL PRICE: $20/$25/$18
  • OTHER RPG NEWS: Best Left Buried: An Interview with Zach Cox
  • DESCRIPTION: In Calamity's Wake, the PCs (Cryptdiggers) arrive in Ybalon just after an unexplained 'Calamity' consisting of a series of storms and volcanic eruptions. Forests were flattened, mountain ranges shattered, and a mysterious, perfectly conical volcano arose. The PCs explore the newly formed landscapes, take on terrifying monsters, venture into strange dungeons, and eventually face off against the mythic heroes of Ybalon's history. Inspired by the Epic of Ibálong and other tales of Filipino mythology. The Lost and the Jammed is a three stat, high lethality dungeon-crawling game filled with strange and esoteric firearms, wandering gunslinger-mystics and high-caliber monsters threatening to overwhelm the last strongholds of civilization. Players step into the waterlogged boots of the Flotsam, mercenaries and adventurers drawn to the Blighted Lands by the promise of plunder. After the cataclysm that broke the world, the Blighted Lands are all that remain, the last bastion of humanity clinging to survival in the skeletal remains of the Old Kingdom. PCs explore abandoned gun foundries, dilapidated war machines, and isolated settlements, encountering infernal demons, grotesque aberrations, and chanting cultists. In All That Glitters, the PC outlaws enter the Hagstrom System where a corporate cold war is about to turn hot, revolutionary workers are amassing arms to throw off their oppressive masters, and an ambitious pirate queen is looking to pull off an audacious bullion heist. A sandbox experience with a variety of Factions, NPCs, and jobs for crews to engage with.

The Nightfell Lunar Dice and Pouch Set contains seven Lunar Dice (d8 with moon phases engraved on each face) and two d20s with Nightfell's glyph on the 20 face along with a cotton pouch. I must admit that moon dice are pretty cool even if you don’t play in this setting.

The Cook at the Crossroads | Brave Zenith - Adventure After All by Exalted Funeral
  • SYSTEM: Mörk Borg/unique
  • PRODUCT TYPE: softcover adventure/softcover core rulebook
  • RETAIL PRICE: $10/$25
  • DESCRIPTION: In The Cook at the Crossroads, the PCs find themselves at a quaint and idyllic inn, but something is horribly wrong. Depending on playstyle this adventure should last anywhere from 2-3 hours. The PCs have a mystery to solve and a fate worse than death to consider. In Brave Zenith PCs explore the ruined world of past and present, meet colorful and deadly creatures, see the sights of the Second City, partake in delicious Monkey Oil, and become an adventurer: ambitious, indebted, and BRAVE. A post-fantasy tabletop RPG, set in a world inspired by Brazilian culture and long summer nights playing JRPGs on a pirated PS1. With a set of simple interpretative rules, that focus on player creativity and imagination. Origins include Humans ( depressed and responsible for ending the world), Catfolk, and Jellies who are wobbly and goofy, unburdened by tradition, possibly delicious. Six vocations: Freelancer (hit stuff, be strong, wear a cool jacket), Mixologist (make grog, get drunk, make friends), Thief, Magic User, Dancer (turn body into a weapon, and Hunter (get a cool pet). Unique creatures include the Capymera (half capybara, half jabberwocky) and Mermaids (kids turned into four armed sea creatures, ready to steal stuff).

I think I let out an involuntary (and very manly) squeak on Wednesday when I saw UVG 2e at my local game store. Could not dig my wallet out fast enough. A couple of years ago I bought the soft cover 1e after seeing it languish on the shelves for months, and I am so glad I picked it up. Both editions are really fantastic, and I've spent the last couple of nights after work with them side by side comparing what's new and what's the same. Next stop is ordering the maps online.
