Modiphius has announced the release of the second edition of Star Trek Adventures, a tabletop roleplaying game originally launched in 2017. The new edition, set to launch at Gen Con 2024, includes a core rulebook and expansions. It remains compatible with first edition supplements. The game allows players to explore the Star Trek universe across different eras, featuring original characters and starships. The second edition introduces diversity with playable non-Federation species and expands gameplay possibilities. Modiphius, in collaboration with Paramount Consumer Products, adds content from Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and Star Trek: Prodigy. The updated 2d20 System rules maintain authenticity and compatibility with previous supplements.

Ultra PRO plans to release Dungeons & Dragons 50th Anniversary accessories, including Heavy Metal Dice, a Dice Tower, and more, celebrating D&D’s milestone year. The accessories feature a golden color theme and will be available in the summer of 2024. 

Paranoia 25th Anniversary Mega Bundle is available through Humble Bundle, offering a comprehensive collection of rulebooks, sourcebooks, and adventures for the darkly comic sci-fi TTRPG. The bundle supports the charity One Tree Planted.

Renowned board game designer Eric Lang, known for titles like Blood Rage and Rising Sun, has collaborated on a new board game called Life in Reterra. Described as a meatier version of Carcassonne, it is set in a post-apocalyptic world where players lead communities in a greener Earth. The tile-laying game supports 2-4 players, with each playthrough taking around 35 minutes. Players acquire and place tiles and buildings within their communities, earning points based on placement and fulfilling specific requirements. The game introduces environmentally sustainable living, reusing discarded items for new infrastructure. Life in Reterra is set to release in the US on June 15th at a retail price of $30, with a European release date pending.

In a groundbreaking move, China’s Guangzhou Internet Court issued the world’s first legally binding verdict on copyright infringement by an AI-generated service. The court ruled against an AI company for infringing on Ultraman’s copyright and adaptation rights during generative AI services, holding it liable for civil damages. The defendant’s AI-generated images substantially copied the original Ultraman work without permission. The judgment emphasized the duty of care for generative AI service providers and specified the need for clear user awareness of copyright risks. The court aimed for a balance between rights protection and industry development, ruling that the defendant compensate the plaintiff 10,000 yuan ($1,389).

Intro song is “Chips” by KokoroNoMe

This week we discuss the Tales From the Loop Amazon series and the well-timed Free League boardgame on Kickstarter. Idle Red Hands is producing The Complete Mutant Chronicles, a video lore series about the Mutant Chronicles and Warzone setting. The Professional Nerd, @BryanCPSteele , announced that Res Nova has the license to produce a new edition of Warzone. The Man of Steel, Henry Cavill confirms his love for Warhammer 40k on Instagram. CMON ceases trading on the Hong Kong stock exchange because of “auditing issues”. They also launched a Kickstarter for Ankh: Gods of Egypt, which is third in the series of games by Eric M. Lang, including Blood Rage and Rising Sun. Fantasy Grounds reports a 150% boost in online sessions on their platform. Now maybe the time to see what a virtual tabletop is all about. The sequel to Gloomhaven is also live on Kickstarter. Frosthaven looks to be an equally impressive game and the designer, Isaac Childes, couldn’t deserve another big success more. He runs a great crowdfunding campaign. Here’s hoping things get back to normal soon and these projects go well.

Apologies for the sound quality this week. We recorded remotely for the first time since the shutdown in Japan. We will get the bugs worked out for next week.
