 Jim Zub’s SKULLKICKERS: Caster Bastards and the Great Grotesque is now available!
Posted: Sat, 04 Jun 00:09:34
Category: Features, drivethrucomics, dungeons & dragons
When the Skullkickers take on a mission at the Academy of Serious Sorcery and Holistic Occult Learning, it'll take every ounce of courage they possess to find their target while steering clear of warped wizardry, whimsical wands and wicked witchcraft wielded by weeping wimps or woeful waifs. This book is both a celebration of sword & sorcery adventure and a cunning cash grab built around the staggering ever-increasing popularity of that damned nostalgic RPG we all know and love despite its endless flaws.

 Hunter The Vigil Second Edition Now Available!
Posted: Wed, 02 Mar 22:27:55
Category: Features, modern-horror, onyx path
In Hunter: The Vigil, you choose between three tiers of gameplay. At tier one, your characters will fight monsters with little to no support. They may find allies along the way, but they're on their own. At tier two, you play hunters backed by a compact that typically operates on a regional level. Your hunters have more guns and gear to fight the darkness. At tier three, you play cogs in a global conspiracy that has plenty of resources — and politics to boot. Conspiracies have more information about the supernatural than they let on, but even then...it's unclear if the lore they've acquired is accurate or not.
