SEAN’S GM PICK OF THE DAY: So you’re running something like Achtung! Cthulhu or a Golden Age pulp supers set in the days of WWII. You could pull out your old toy soldiers, but they’re just too damn big when you put them next to your superheroes or your investigators.

DramaScape has you covered with their WWII Soldiers Germans & Americans.

Delta Green is one of the most respected properties in gaming, and it’s also a fantastic source of Lovecraftian-inspired fiction. One of the creators of this concept – award-winning author/designer Dennis Detwiller – brings you “tales of cosmic terror and personal horror” that “span the life of Delta Green.” Get Delta Green: Tales from Failed Anatomies on your tablet and start reading.

From Rogue Games

Lawlessness reigns and nowhere is this more apparent than in the small settlement of Lynn. Located north of Boston, local bandits have taken advantage of the current conflict with England, and now terrorize the village.

All have been touched by this lawlessness, especially Jacob Newhall, proprietor of the Lynn Tavern. His daughter, Tabitha, has fallen victim to these rogues. Found wandering the streets of Lynn, covered in filth, with her clothes tattered, the poor girl seems to have suffered greatly.

Can you get to the bottom of Tabitha’s disappearance, and learn what malady besets the young lady? Be careful with your search because you do not know what dangers lurk within the shadows.

Written by William Butler (Servants of Gaius) and Brendan Davis (Servants of Gaius), The Landlord’s Daughter is a tale of mystery, secret societies, pirates, betrayal, and witchcraft set in the towns of Marblehead and Lynn in Esex County, Massachusetts.

Beware of the secrets hidden in a small town.

Welcome to the Big Irish Vlog of 05/18/2014

* Gen Con Event Reg

Holy wow! Just… woah. Gone in sixty seconds doesn’t even scratch the surface. I am both amazed and distressed, the latter due to how many people wanted to play and couldn’t get into a game.

So pay attention, `cause here’s what I’m going to do…

* The New Map

We’ve begun working in earnest on the new map for Shaintar, which will incorporate all the user-created content. Backers will see their kingdoms and other contributions on this, and many GMs will also find towns they’ve created on the map. There’s a working version (my Paint-driven scrawlings on a much older iteration) on the site.

* Campaign Collaboration

Howard Brandon has seriously stepped up and started making this even more of a reality than it was before. If you’re registered as a Grey Lantern on the forums, get in there and see what we mean. Campaigns are undergoing all kinds of awesome crossovers. If you’re running Shaintar and you’re not a Grey Lantern, let us know and we will hook you up.

* Savage Praxis

OK, friends, I want to talk to you about Nova Praxis, the Savage Worlds Edition…

 

Sean Patrick Fannon, creator of Shaintar, RPG industry veteran, and Chief Everything of Evil Beagle Games, expounds regularly about stuff he is into and stuff he feels like sharing… which could be pretty much anything.

d20 Players and GMs have enjoyed years of support oriented towards “making characters more awesome.” Mystical Throne Entertainment brings that awesomeness to Savage fans with this latest product, the Ultimate Characters Guide (Savage Worlds). Racial and Background templates, new Hindrances and Edges, and a ton more stuff to expand and enhance character building.
