Star Wars Skirmish is a new Star Wars miniatures skirmish game coming next year. Atomic Mass Games, the Asmodee Studio that currently produces the Star Wars: Legion and Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures tabletop games, have announced this new skirmish game featuring iconic characters from the Star Wars universe. The game will be released in June 2023 and will be released alongside existing Star Wars products. Players will build a strike team of characters, such as Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan Kryze or Lord Maul, and have them compete in battles with evolving mission objectives.

Regency Cthulhu by Chaosium is a new sourcebook for the popular Call of Cthulhu RPG. And it does exactly what it says on the tin. The world of Regency England—and specifically here, Jane Austen’s England, which was society through a bitingly satirical lens—is about to be full of monsters from the mythos.Call it Shoggoths and Sensibility. Or Persuasion (by elder powers to hasten the destruction of all you know and hold dear). But maybe buckle a brace of pistols over your waistcoat, because Regency England is beset by horrors.

Heroscape’s return is in doubt. Its Hasbro Pulse campaign captured a burst of backers thanks to the dedicated community that has sustained itself over Heroscape’s nearly twelve-year hiatus, but the momentum died almost immediately. Only 3,400 backers have pledged Age of Annihilation’s $250 box.The project needs to surpass 8,000 purchases, or $2 million in promised funding, by November 15th to convince Hasbro it deserves to exist. Their current focus on their big cash cows of Magic: the Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons means Heroscape will not be coming back any time soon. 

A new starter set allows you to play Edgerunners from the popular Netflix series in Cyberpunk RED. The Cyberpunk Edgerunners Mission Kit runs on the Cyberpunk RED rpg ruleset. Cyberpunk RED is the latest iteration of the original Cyberpunk RPG, going all the way back to the days of 1988. Now, the new starter box has an updated look for even the days of the RED. This feels like the “bridge” between the Night City of 2045 (the time of the Red) and the “now” of Night City in 2077. The set will include lore and rules to bring the setting and game up to the timeline from the anime by Trigger Studios and the console/PC game by CD Project Red.

Paizo will be raising its PDF prices following an increase in labor to produce them. Previously they just priced PDFs at flat percentage of the print books MSRP. The price increase seems modest and for some things, like flip mats, the price is actually going down in some cases.  With the new found popularity of VTTs and nicer displays on tablets to read PDFs it seems inevitable to try to make more profit from the easier to produce digital products. We will see who else follows suit.

 

CMON is producing an Assassin’s Creed TTRPG based on the 15 year old video game. The game will involve playing both Descendants, the modern day characters and Ancestors, the assassins of the Brotherhood from various historical periods. This is done by using a virtual reality technology called the ANIMUS that taps into the genetic information in your DNA to access your Ancestors lives. It was a cool concept for a game and if done right may be really fun on the tabletop. The development is being overseen by the talented Francesco Nepitello for Guillotine Press, the CMON RPG studio.

 

Heroquest is getting a Hero Collection Expansion. The Rogue Heir of Elethorn, a nimble elf skirmisher. This set includes two miniatures (possibly a single character gender swapped) and cards. It retails for a hefty US$17 and I would call that overpriced just based on the quality of the Heroquest base game. At least they are supporting the game with new expansions.

 

Magic: the Gathering Universes Beyond is a “success” but annoying series for many serious MtG players. It involves reskinning cards using various popular IPs. The first of these being the Walking Dead television series. The series relies on FOMO, but has offered reprints. The main attraction to players seems to be the desirable cards and not the IPs themselves. Look forward to Warhammer 40k, Age of Sigmar, Lord of the Rings and other odd fits into the collectible card game system. 

 

Free League is releasing a miniatures skirmish game based on the Mutant Year Zero TTRPG called Zone Wars. Games Workshop designer Andy Chambers, known for Warhammer Fantasy Battles, Necromunda and Battlefleet Gothic and Tomas Härenstam, designer for Mutant: Year Zero and the studio’s Alien: The RPG. You can use your characters from the TTRPG in the skirmish game and also play out the aftermath of the skirmish game in the TTRPG. Brilliant! Really looking forward to this.

Games Workshop’s classic Judge Dredd board game is getting a remake. First released in 1982, Judge Dredd: The Game of Crime Fighting in Mega-City One was designed by Sir Ian Livingstone – co-founder of the Warhammer maker – and put players in the jackboots of Dredd’s fellow judges as they patrolled the streets of Mega-City One in search of perps to arrest. Nice to see something new from Rebellion Unplugged!

Hasbro has named Dan Rawson as its new Senior Vice President for the Dungeons & Dragons brand. Rawson was announced as the new head of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise, filling a role that was posted four months ago. Rawson comes from the tech sector, having worked for Microsoft Dynamics 365 as COO. Oh good. Another Microsoft exec to make D&D more of a subscription service.

To celebrate 30 years of Magic: The Gathering, we knew we had to go big. We had to create an experience for fans new and old that would be worthy of three decades of the original trading card game. We wanted a collectible, commemorative, jaw-dropping, mind-blowing thing that would cement itself in our collective memories as we look toward the next 30 years of Magic. The price tag is $999. Happy frickin’ anniversary.

Beloved miniatures wargame Heroscape is back with a HazLabs crowdfunding project. The $249.99 boxed set called Heroscape: Age of Annihilation, which includes loads of customizable scenery and five playable factions. It will only be produced if the campaign receives 8,000 pre-orders, but if it’s successful, Hasbro’s Avalon Hill imprint plans to bring the franchise back to life with additional releases. If the quality of the Heroquest release is anything to go by, save your money and wait for the tile packs.

LEGO is celebrating 50 years of Dungeons & Dragons. Fans can submit designs inspired by Dungeons & Dragons using LEGO bricks, elements and pieces. The designs will be voted on by both fans and judges from LEGO. The winners will get their designs officially released and receive a little piece of the profits. Keep under the 3,000 piece limit and you are good to go.
