    The Weekly 077: Metal Gear Solid: The Boardgame Cancelled, New Never Going Home and Legend of the Five Rings LCG Ends

    The Weekly 077: Metal Gear Solid: The Boardgame Cancelled, New Never Going Home and Legend of the Five Rings LCG Ends

    IDW Games will no longer publish the Metal Gear Solid boardgame. This means the designer also loses the license for the IP from Konami. This leaves more than 2,000 pre-orders on BackerKit and Amazon in limbo. The Legend of the Five Rings Living Card Game by Fantasy Flight is coming to an end. This doesn’t affect the RPG or novels they will continue to support. Wet Ink Games has released three new dossiers for their weird World War I game, Never Going Home.

    The Weekly 076: Gale Forge Nine Lawsuit Settled, One Ring 2nd Edition and LotR Licensed RPGs

    The Weekly 076: Gale Forge Nine Lawsuit Settled, One Ring 2nd Edition and LotR Licensed RPGs

    The lawsuit for nonpayment is settled by Wizards of the Coast with Gale Force Nine following another settlement of the Dragonlance lawsuit. Is the conspiracy over or just beginning? The 2nd Edition of the One Ring by Free League, previously produced by Cubicle 7, is now on Kickstarter. For context, we take a look at the history of licensed Lord of the Rings TTRPGs.

    The Weekly 075: Stuff of Legend Puppet Actual Play, Muppetborn for 5E and Zinequest 3 on Kickstarter

    The Weekly 075: Stuff of Legend Puppet Actual Play, Muppetborn for 5E and Zinequest 3 on Kickstarter

    We talk about the new actual play series, Stuff of Legend, that uses puppets to play out the action of their roleplay session. Is the future of AP felt-based? In the same spirit, we take a look at the Muppetborn race for 5E by BJ Hypes. It is a well made and very charming way to play Kermit the Assassin. Finally, this month will bring us 470 indie zine RPG projects on Kickstarter as part of Zinequest 3. It is a chance for game designers to create a physical version of their projects that may have only been available digitally in the past.

    The Weekly 074: The Weekly 074: The Symbaroum RPG Starter Set, Pathfinder Meets Savage Worlds, and the D&D Singularity

    Free League is releasing a starter set for their 2015 RPG Symbaroum. Will this bring new players to this dark nature fantasy setting beautifully illustrated by Martin Grip? The official conversion for Pathfinder to the Savage Worlds system is now available on Kickstarter. We also discuss what D&D 6th edition may look like and the Dungeons and Dragons Singularity prophecized in Tasha’s Cauldron.

    The Weekly 073: 2020 in Review The Good and the Bad (mostly bad) of Last Year

    The Weekly 073: 2020 in Review The Good and the Bad (mostly bad) of Last Year

    We look back at 2020 and all the things that could have been great but had to suffer from our global condition. The Witcher and Tales From the Loop hit TV. Mork Borg and Ironsworn caught our attention as outstanding RPGs. Warcaster: Neo Mechanical by Privateer Press came and went. GenCon 2020 was cancelled along with everything else. The Dead Milkmen released the Lost Tomb of the Bitchin Chimera for 5E. Heroquest was update and released on HasLab. The Quest RPG still has us curious. Cyberpunk Red on the tabletop preceded the unfinished and buggy Cyberpunk 2077 for PC and consoles. This was not the Year of Dune as we previously predicted. Games Workshop releases the 9th edition of Warhammer 40k and really screwed anybody trying to sell their games, but their webstore. Alan Dean Foster was not paid by Disney and thinks Rey should have been a droid. And finally, the KFConsole is the joke that won’t go away.

    The Weekly 072: Cyberpunk Red Miniatures Game, Bestselling RPGs of 2020 and the Baggage of Cyberpunk

    The Weekly 072: Cyberpunk Red Miniatures Game, Bestselling RPGs of 2020 and the Baggage of Cyberpunk

    Cyberpunk Red will have a skirmish miniatures game called Combat Zone produced by Monster Fight Club. This is the same company that produced the miniatures for the Cyberpunk Red tabletop game previously. We review the list of best selling “other” (non-5E) TTPRG titles on DriveThruRPG in 2020. The results may surprise you. Finally, we discuss the baggage of the Cyberpunk genre, more specifically the portrayal of Asian culture and stereotypes. There is also a Cyberpunk by Asians Game Jam currently running on Itch.io that may also bring new perspectives to the genre. “Western cyberpunk media borrows heavily from Asian visuals and fetishizes Asian culture, without the involvement of actual Asians. This game jam is for Asian creators who want to make our own cyberpunk games.”
