Reiview Bestiary 6 for Pathfinder from Paizo

Thu, 05/18/2017 - 11:32

Bestiary 6

Book of Monsters

pages

Published by Paizo

Bestiary 6 is full of new monsters and potential player races.  Many of which are inspired by myth, lore Lovecraft and more! It’s a large collection of monsters that might make you wonder what they’re thinking.  I mean it’s their sixth book of monsters, seventh if you count the Monster Codex. As you might expect the book is well organized and it is just full of new art, plus it also includes appendixes and updated universal monster rules.

Bestiary 6 contains all kinds of goodies

Blight

Horsemen of the Apocalypse

Devils/demons/daemons

clockworks

dragons

empyreal

Kaiju

Player Races 5

Entothropes

New familiars

 

Specific Monsters that stand out to me

Alter Ego

Animous Shade

elder Wyrm

fallen

troop

When I first found out about Bestiary 6 I was like really?  Can they pull it off? Well, I think they did just that! While many of the monsters in this book are CR heavy there are still a lot of lower level gems in this book. As a GM I will be happy using the information here to design my own corner or alternate reality of Golaria.  As a player I am extremely worried about what my GM will be plotting to do to me.

CUBICLE 7 PARTNERS WITH MAKE BELIEVE GAMES ON CTHULHU MYTHOS RPG

Tue, 04/04/2017 - 19:58
CUBICLE 7 PARTNERS WITH MAKE BELIEVE GAMES ON CTHULHU MYTHOS RPG COMPANY TO PUBLISH NEW TAKE ON HORROR GAMING UK games publisher Cubicle 7 Entertainment has forged a partnership agreement with Make Believe Games, the company of legendary Vampire: The Masquerade creator Mark Rein-Hagen. They have announced their intention to release a tabletop roleplaying game inspired by the cosmic horror of writers like H.P. Lovecraft and August Derleth. In Unspeakable: Sigil & Sign expectations are flipped on their heads, and players take the role of cultists, members of an apparently evil organization, dedicated to the destruction of mundane reality. The game explores the multifaceted themes of what it means to be monsters, looking out on a world that is as disturbing and maddening to them as they are to it.

Dominic McDowall, CEO of Cubicle 7 Entertainment, had this to say: “As a life-long fan of Mark Rein Hagen’s work I am insanely excited about this partnership between our companies and what it enables us to bring to gamers. Cubicle 7 has some really strong experience with Mythos games, and Mark’s company brings some really brilliant creative talent, like C.A. Suleiman, to the table. We’re creating something truly fresh with Unspeakable: Sigil & Sign. New situations, new play experiences, and a whole new way to explore the Mythos.” “For me, the entire concept of The Unspeakable setting is like a final exam of game design,” added creator-developer Suleiman. “Without abandoning what’s central to it, nor even leaving its classic pulp era, we get to pull back the veil on some of the deeper mysteries of the Cthulhu Mythos, in the process rendering a game environment as rich and compelling as that of any tabletop game setting.” “I can’t remember a time before I loved the Mythos,” said Mark Rein-Hagen, founder of Make Believe Games and creator of Vampire: The Masquerade and the World of Darkness. “It was my introduction to horror. Real horror. Words cannot express how excited I am to finally be involved in a truly Lovecraftian RPG.” Work is now underway on the core set for Sigil & Sign, which introduces the characters and setting as it establishes core rules and themes. It launches on Kickstarter in April. All products in the series will run on the Axiom System, first launched in MBG’s “Toxploitation” RPG, I Am Zombie. About Cubicle 7 Cubicle 7 Entertainment Ltd is the creative team behind such popular games as The One Ring Roleplaying Game, Adventures in Middle-earth, Doctor Who Roleplaying Game, Cthulhu Tales, World War Cthulhu, Cthulhu Britannica, Doctor Who Time Clash, Dalek Dice, The Laundry RPG, and many more. Contact Cubicle 7 About Make Believe Games Make Believe Games is a U.S.-based company committed to making innovative games across multiple platforms. Founded by Vampire: The Masquerade and World of Darkness creator Mark Rein-Hagen, it is the publisher of President Cthulhu, the Democracy board game, and the I Am Zombie RPG, which introduced the tabletop gaming world to its card-based in-house game engine, the Axiom System.

President’s 2005 Tax Returns

Sun, 04/02/2017 - 19:48

 

 

Cheapass Games Releases President’s 2005 Tax Returns

 

Seattle, WA—April 1, 2017. Cheapass Games have come into possession of shocking and revelatory documents concerning their own president’s financial dealings as well as possible ties to domestic powers.

These documents are coming to light during what can only be described as a tumultuous and scandal-ridden period, James Ernest’s first 100 days of his twenty-second year as president of Cheapass Games.

Before linking to these documents, we want to let you know that what they contain is groundbreaking and shocking. And you are not going to see them anywhere else. Just here.

Take a long slow minute to think about that. Take another. That’s good. Breathe it in.

Linked here are the actual 2005 tax returns of James Ernest and family, then a jointly-owned sole proprietorship in Washington state. Using the pragmanym “John Miller,” James Ernest and his beautiful first wife Carol Monahan, according to these documents being made available for the first time today, have clearly paid no federal income taxes, a triumph which by today’s standards shows that he is a genius and is eminently qualified to be president, if only of a small tabletop game company in the Pacific Northwest.

Unreachable for comment, James Ernest nevertheless had this to say about these astounding revelations this morning, tweeting:

Although this 2005 tax return is absurdly out of date and tells us nothing of the current financial health of Cheapass Games, we hope it will nevertheless serve as a stirring reminder of the greatness of our president, and his willingness to abide by the letter of the law in order to suck hundreds of dollars in taxpayer money from the federal government.

About Cheapass Games

Cheapass Games is a small tabletop game company in the Pacific Northwest. They make small tabletop games and continue to abide by the letter of the tax code. James Ernest has been their unelected president since 1996, and vows one day to repeal and replace every game the company has ever published. So far he is 0 for 174.

PATHFINDER RPG: BOOK OF THE DAMNED EXPLORES THE WORKINGS OF THE POWERFUL FORCES OF EVIL

Now Available for Pre-Order, Book of the Damned Takes Players from the Darkest Depths of the Demon-Haunted Abyss, to the Apocalyptic Realm of Abaddon and the Infernal Layers of Hell Itself
REDMOND, WA (March 23, 2017): Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, announces today the forthcoming Pathfinder RPG: Book of the Damned hardcover rulebook will be released September 2017 and is now available for pre-order (MSRP $44.99).

The denizens of the evil planes of existence have long tempted, tormented, and tortured mortal life. From the lowliest imp to the mightiest demon lord, these realms are ripe with horrors and festering with threats to body, mind, and soul, and the routes to knowing these blasphemous secrets are held within the infamous pages of the Book of the Damned.

With details on demon lords and arch devils, information on the realms of Hell, Abaddon, and the Abyss, and rules for incorporating fiendish influences into the game—be they in the form of foes for heroic parties to face, or temptations for less scrupulous adventurers to consider—Pathfinder RPG: Book of the Damned explores the workings of these powerful forces of evil, focusing on the numerous demigods that influence mortal life and the countless fiends who prey upon the living and dead alike. Pathfinder RPG Book of the Damned includes:

  • Information on the sinister boons granted to worshipers of dozens of fiendish demigods drawn from the planes of Abaddon, the Abyss, and Hell, including Archdevils, Demon Lords, and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
  • An exploration of the infernal realms of Hell, the sinister reaches of Abaddon, and the bottomless rifts of the Abyss.
  • New feats, spells, magic items, and prestige classes for use by characters who both fight against and serve the forces of darkness.
  • Rules for infernal contracts and sinister rituals.
  • Statistics for several never-before revealed fiends and lavishly-illustrated in-world excerpts from the pages of the notorious Book of the Damned itself.

Book of the Damned fills my dark soul with devilish delight,” says Paizo Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Erik Mona. “Demons, devils, and darkness are always popular topics around the Pathfinder game table, and Book of the Damned arms players with tools to fight against (or alongside) these paragons of evil, adding a demoniacal twist to any Pathfinder campaign. Are your players taking a trip to Hell? Don’t Satanic Panic! Book of the Damned has all the infernal answers you’re looking for!”

Book of the Damned is a dark and beautiful new hardcover tome for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. For additional information, visit Paizo.

Each of these Army Boxes contains a ready-to-play 50-point army, designed by the Privateer Press Development team to provide a solid foundation for new players or for veterans interested in diving into a new Faction. While the last couple of Army Box pairs have each contained a similar theme in composition, this month we present two very different takes on the art of WARMACHINE.

Choose Your Path in Season 3 of the Crossroads of Courage League!
Crossroads of Courage: Season 3 began 3/1/2017! This year’s narrative league has been a rollercoaster thus far, with your reports directly influencing the fate of the league’s central protagonist (antagonist?), Holden. If you haven’t heard, the Crossroads league is culminating in a huge narrative event at Lock & Load® GameFest 2017, in which Holden’s final fate (and rules) will be decided. Why does that matter? Because Holden is going to get released as a full model for WARMACHINE & HORDES sometime after Lock & Load 2017!

Ever since the release of Zachary C. Parker’s action-packed novella Wrath of the Dragonfather in 2016, readers have clamored for a print edition of this climactic battle between dragons to add to their Skull Island eXpeditions’ library. But up to now, the printing costs of a book under 200 pages have presented a challenge….

…but not anymore! Amazon.com now has a special print-on-demand service that allows us to offer shorter novels to you at a solid price, and we are starting with Wrath of the Dragonfather because we know it’s one you’re waiting for.
