The Years Between is an alternate method for PCs to level up. The leveling process is accelerated in order to serve the judge’s needs or make a higher level module survivable.

I'm not sure I understand the animated effects of the spell cards? I went to the web site and it didn't really clear up what they mean. Anyone have a link to a actual picture of these things?

My guess was like those old 1980's cards from cracker jacks or something where the image changes based on the angle you view it from. So to see the animation, you'd kind of tilt the card side to side.

Yes - I found their Kickstarter and that's exactly what it is. It's called "lenticular lenses" or "lenticular printing" where you have a different group of images on the card interlaced on a sheet of plastic and then depending on how you tilt the card you see different images. An analog version of an animated GIF.

I backed the kickstarter for the Studio Agate books, for digital copies. Even though my bookshelf is full, I'm regretting not getting the physical books . . . the artwork is AMAZING and worth the price alone. Worldbuilding is fun too, and is presented from a slightly different perspective for American audiences, and the publisher is European (Italian if I remember correctly).

French. Pretty certain they're French. My physical books are due to arrive next week. Can't wait to see them in physical form.
 


It is not news of something in print, but rather of a new video game released that is set in a ttrpg world. The RPG Tormenta has gotten a video game made for it called Reverie Knights Tactics and is out on PC, XB1, PS4, and Switch. As rare as quality representation for game setting to video game products has been, I hope this one is good. @LuisCarlos17f aren't you in Brazil and can say anything about this system?

I've been becoming more and more of a fan of the Euro RPG world. A lot of the work seems to be unfettered of the Edition Wars, and have a more organic albeit complex system that works far better than almost anything American published in the last 20 years.
