Book of Heroic Races: Player Races 1Hey 5e Fans. Like we said yesterday with Pathfinder, today starts the annual Christmas in July Sale at DriveThruRPG/RPGNow. It started earlier today and will be running until July 29. We have three excellent products for Fifth Edition on sale now.

  • Those that want to play a new race should check out the 5-STAR rated Book of Heroic Races: Player Races 1. These fun races will give your players exciting options for some time to come.
  • A great way to start off your campaign is the 4-Star rated Deadly Delves: Along Came a Spider. This 1st-level adventure is a great way to start off a creepy campaign for your players. Those that hate spiders, like me, will remember this adventure for a long time to come.
  • Continue your campaign with the 5-STAR rated Deadly Delves: Rescue from Tyrkaven. This 2nd-level adventure starts the players off with hunting down murdrous hobgoblin and ends up having the players take on the servants of a long-forgotten deity. Even though the Pathfinder version of this adventure came out first, it was written for Fifth Edition.

Foreven Worlds: The Army of Unity

July 11, 2016 1 comment

Foreven Worlds Prelude to War The Rose of DeathWith the 1st issue of the the Foreven Worlds Adventure Path, Prelude to War: The Rose of Death coming together, I thought I would talk a bit about what is inside. The center of the adventure is the adventure, of course, but what else is inside. One of things I am putting the final touches on now is details on a group called the Army of Unity.
Who exactly are the Army of Unity you ask and what bearing do they have to do with the adventure. The Army of Unity are a group the players are being sent to interact with, and possibly strike a blow to them. So we are including an article about the organization, telling about what the group actually stands for, what is their history, how wide spread are they. That last one is important since we all know player characters have a nasty habit of blowing things up far more than any game master can foresee. By talking about how widespread the group is means that even if the characters make an enormous kaboom, the could still encounter members of the Army of Unity that want a little payback.
The Army of Unity started off as a peaceful group in the Cornathian Empire having illegal narcotic-fueled orgies known as psisight. Not only is this drug illegal for its addictive properties that are a detriment to the user’s long term health, it grants minor psionic powers to its users for a limited time. Since all psionic activities are illegal in the Cornathian Empire, the police force were far from gentle when arresting members of this group, and they choose to fight back, becoming an army.
The adventure itself is written to not require a map of the station, but since some gamers love using maps and even more love looking at and studying maps, I created the map of their secret asteroid base. Below is the (nearly completed) floor plan of Decks 1 and 2. Check it out. I hope you like it.

Starfinder: Aliens In Spaaaaaaace

About 2 years ago, I walked out of Guardians of the Galaxy and said, “I want a raccoon race in my sci-fi games.” I liked Rocket, but I would rather him be a race rather than a one of a kind creature. So I asked my favorite artist to do a few drawings, and that is where this image came from. Man, do I love it!

Aliens are going to be a cornerstone to any Starfinder game in the way that fantasy races are to Pathfinder. So for the next installment in my ongoing series about what kind of Starfinder setting would I make, I would like to talk about some of the alien races in it. Of course there will be humans, androids, lashunta, and ratfolk in there, as well as any other race in the core rulebook, but I just have to add my own (if it is not already in there). First one will be a raccoon race. A nice scrappy race that is all about nocturnal life. That’s them. So they should be a crazy, go in guns blazing little guys. I also need to add seedlings in there. You know where I am going with this so I am just going to stop here.

But what else should I do with races: change the flavor of the core races. As I have said many, many places, I always prefer Dark Sun to the Forgotten Realms. Give me a cannibal halfling any day. So how would I change the core races: during the great war that plunged the once great StarRealm into darkness and ruin, the lashunta saw their world bombarded by asteroids by the Cycrom Collective (the cybernetic undead). The lashunta, as a result are scarce in numbers and many of the older generation have gone insane with grief. The younger generation tend to be either exceptionally practical, having grown up taking care of their parents all throughout their childhood, or are angry extremists, wanting revenge on Cycroms for robbing them of a life they can only dream of now.

That is as far as I have created at the moment. If you enjoy this series, please let us know, tell a friend, and sign up for our Starfinder newsletter to stay up on all our latest articles.

Traveller: Rosy Artwork

June 30, 2016 Leave a comment

Foreven Worlds Prelude to War The Rose of DeathComing later this summer is The Rose of Death, our first adventure in the Prelude to War adventure path. Earlier this week, we got in some of the artwork for this adventure and I wanted to show it off to you.

Each of these four characters play an important part in the adventure. Exactly what that part is, you will have to wait and find out. *evil grin*

This adventure is a good introduction of what life is like beyond the safety of the Imperium. The characters get to see first hand how things can quickly go from a normal average day to a terrible day when there is no massive over-government keeping major criminals in check and and the law enforcement (mostly) honest.

Beyond the adventure itself, we give you an indepth look into the planet Cornath. This is really helpful when the characters want to go sightseeing on a different continent. Alternatively, if you want to have your character originally from here, this will help you see what life you can expect on this superearth, letting you talk in game like you really are from the planet.

BoB Monsters of the Forbidden Woods

Danger and Death Await in the Forbidden Woods

Deep in the heart of the Forbidden Woods lies a group of monsters that is too terrifying for most adventurers to face. Animals of enormous size, creatures part spider and bear, terrifying crocodile beavers—and things much, much worse. Only the bravest heroes dare to stand up to these foul abominations of murderous intent and save the people from a fate far worse than death.

These monsters are designed to frighten characters and leave your players recounting their tales of heroism time and again. Inside this volume, you’ll find:

  • 18 new monsters, ranging from challenge 1/4 to 7
  • Items found in the monsters’ lairs, giving you ready ideas for a treasure hoard
  • In-game descriptions of each monster, ranging from random NPC quotes to other names given to the monster
  • Adventure hooks for using these monsters in unique and exciting ways
  • Battle suggestions, with advice on how to build an encounter using each monster
