RPG Print News – Troll Lord, Mongoose, and More

The Dark Lord won; Midnight is back for Dungeons & Dragons. The jabberwock is also available and works in many fantasy RPGs including D&D and Pathfinder. It is cool because it is the jabberwock not because it is a mini. Just to be extra clear. There are also a graph paper pad and a journal with the D&D logo and art as added bling. Pathfinder 2E gets a deluxe book for the Abomination Vaults. Castles & Crusades has two new hardcovers for spells and NPCs respectively and Traveller (2E Mongoose 2E) gets a double adventure and a setting supplement. There are also two RPG core rulebooks, one for Kids on Bikes and the other about losing your memories (which I had to pick up).

  • DESCRIPTION:
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.
