Modern Fantasy . . . Noir?

Posted: May 13, 2005

Normal fantasy has elves and dwarves. Modern fantasy has elves and dwarves with guns. But what of noir fantasy? The spell-slinging, cigarette-smoking, black and white world of D6 Bloodshadows is just what all you undead Bogarts, shapeshifting femme fatales, and mystic private dicks have been waiting for. Here's lookin' at you, daemon.

Monstrous Plush

Posted: May 12, 2005

Studies show that children who have stuffed monsters grow up with the super powers required to defeat evil creatures. Godzilla Origins: Plush Gigan is scientifically proven to stimulate the latent monster-killing abilities in babies. Okay, that's a complete lie, but it is a neat plush for Godzilla fans.

Buy Low, Sell High, Own Everything

Featuring the art of Phil & Kaja Foglio, Empyrean Inc. is the interstellar card game of monopolizing markets, grabbing goods, deciding deals, and otherwise conquering the galaxy with the might of your economic fist!

Fewer Calories, Same Insane Taste

With all the same nightmare-inducing horrors, all the sanity-bending rules, all the Lovecraftian darkness as the hardcover, it's the Call of Cthulhu Softcover. We'd tell you more about it, but even second-hand arcane knowledge will cost you 2d4 sanity, and we wouldn't want that, would we?

Half-Drow, Half-Lich, All Evil

Posted: May 06, 2005

Designed to test the very limits of a player's skill and cunning, Crypt of the Devil Lich was the module used at the Dungeon Crawl Classics Open at Gen Indy '04. It even includes the rules for tournament scoring. Try Dungeon Interludes for something a bit less intense: six adventures that can be played apart or as a grand campaign.

The Plushy Goth

Posted: May 05, 2005

She's dressed in black, she hangs out with "vampires," and she's anything but mopey. She's Gilly, the perky goth of Dork Tower fame. Take your days from "black" to "slightly less black" with this Gilly Plush. Glee!

Big Barbarians Come In Small Packages

Posted: May 04, 2005

Now you can take everyone's favorite barbarian wherever you go! Conan Pocket Edition has everything the full-sized rule book contains, only much smaller. On the other end of the spectrum is Aquilonia - Flower of the West, with a page count as mighty as the nation itself.

And So It Ends . . .

Season 5 was the last of the Babylon seasons. There would never be another. Which is why it's a good thing we have the Babylon 5 RPG, with books like Babylon 5: Wheel of Fire. This sourcebook covers every episode of the final season, providing everything you need to run your B5 campaign in the year 2263.

Because One Variant Is Never Enough

Posted: May 01, 2005

Your choice of player's handbook may be good, but is it good enough? Bring your d20 game to a higher level of consciousness with Arcana Evolved. Use it as a game unto itself or with another rulebook to add a little spice to a current campaign.

Mosquitoes And Man-Cows

Posted: April 30, 2005

A Swarm of Stirges is everything there is to know about stirges; where they come from, what they do, and (most importantly) how to kill them. Maze of the Minotaur gives much the same treatment to another classic monster, as well as introducing the yin to the minotaur's yang: the minotrice.

Who Says Being Single-Celled Is Boring?

Posted: April 29, 2005

Just because you're an amoeba doesn't mean you don't have much to do. On the contrary, there's eating, dividing, and . . . did we mention eating? Okay, so it is pretty boring. Thankfully, there's Primordial Soup, the surprisingly exciting game of amazingly dull organisms.
