 That Feeling When Oracle Deck is on Kickstarter
Posted: Wed, 01 Sep 17:59:37
Category: News, kickstarter, tarot
That feeling when you discover a word in another language that so perfectly captures a familiar experience is a joyful, exciting feeling in itself. Think hygge (a Danish concept for the quality of being warm and comfortable that gives a feeling of happiness) or shinrin-yoku (a Japanese word for the healing act of forest bathing). Inspired by these hard-to-name but universal feelings, those liminal spaces between Big Emotions, That Feeling When is a 44-card oracle deck crafted from evocative, inclusive, and community-sourced collage imagery. The 2.5"x3.5" cards sport a satin-matte finish and glittery turquoise edge and are packed in a two-piece box with a full-color guide book.

 Squeaks in the Deep, a new Pugmire sourcebook from Onyx Path Publishing
Posted: Fri, 16 Jul 14:29:57
Category: Features, dark-fantasy, onyx path
Venture into the Realms of Pugmire one more time... Rats and mice live in the margins of the empires of dogs and cats, with homes that connect to the Underneath — a vast collection of warrens, tunnels, caves, and other hidden places. It is a dangerous place full of unexplained phenomena and terrifying creatures. But it is also full of wonders of ages past and the thrill of discovery. For the rodents believe Man was part of something called Science, a way to learn power through study, observation, and experimentation. Perhaps through the exploration of the Underneath, they can rediscover what Man has left behind. It’s time to listen to the squeaks in the deep. Squeaks in the Deep is a chronicle sourcebook for both Pugmire and Monarchies of Mau. It’s usable with either game, or as part of a joint experience.

Developed by Wizards of the Coast and Tuque Games, DARK ALLIANCE is the first Dungeons & Dragons video game published by Wizards of the Coast; a new CGI trailer was released to celebrate the launch. "Whenever I'm at the table playing Dungeons & Dragons with my friends, I always anxiously await that moment in a scenario when the Dungeon Master says, 'Roll for initiative'. That's when you know things are about to get intense and dangerous,” said Jeff Hattem, Studio Head at Tuque Games and Creative Director for DARK ALLIANCE. "We designed DARK ALLIANCE from those moments in D&D campaigns; our game puts combat at the center of the experience and we can’t wait for players to feel what it’s like to battle a Frost Giant up close and personal."

 New Edition of Blood Sword for 5th Edition Live on Kickstarter
Posted: Fri, 18 Jun 16:18:03
Category: News, Promotions, dnd5e
When it was first released, Blood Sword was the first series of interactive novels that allowed you to play singly or in a group. Part-gamebook, part-RPG, it allowed its readers to imagine themselves in a fantastic and dark world, full of dangerous magic and populated by powerful sorcerers and frightening beasts. That revolutionary epic, a five-volume masterpiece, was an overwhelming international success, and went on to thrill generations of adventurers. Even today, after numerous reprints, it remains a bestseller. "Blood Sword is the sword of life, the only weapon capable of opposing the evil power of the Wizards of Krarth who threaten the Lands of Legend. Your mission is to retrieve the fragments of the sword and thus bring an end to the impending doom, but to do so, you will have to face the grim and harsh Kingdom of Wyrd, with its trap-ridden labyrinths, fearful beasts, and enemies of all kinds and shapes.
