The Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game announced a release date for its upcoming tabletop RPG. The officially licensed RPG will release a core rulebook in June 2023, followed by an adventure supplement in July. Both books written by Matt Forbeck and artwork by Iban Coello. The core rulebook will package everything a group needs to create their own superheroes and learn the rules. Marvel Multiverse RPG uses three six-sided dice for its s616 system that is both a nod to the prime Marvel universe and Forbeck’s answer to heroic combat where power levels between characters can vary wildly. There is a free playtest still available before the release.

Moonbreaker, a miniature skirmish game on PC, by Unknown Worlds, the developer of Subnautica, wants to make the ‘world’s best digital miniatures game’. Videogames owe a lot to their tabletop counterparts, especially when it comes to turn-based strategy and tactics, but one of the best parts of fielding armies, gets overlooked in the digital realm: model painting. Moonbreaker is trying to do something that more like real tabletop, but for PC gamers. Following the reveal of the One D&D VTT are digital miniatures going to become a thing?

The Settlers of Catan will become a holographic AR board game. Jeri Ellsworth’s intriguing AR headset will create a new version of Catan, one of the most critically acclaimed board games ever made and one that averages over a million copies sold per year. The boardgame will leap off tabletop thanks to a unique augmented reality gaming system that’s been in development for over a decade now. Tilt Five, a startup founded by a former Valve engineer. The company has already had two Kickstarters and has developed 21 AR games.

eBay is acquiring TCGplayer, one of the largest trading card marketplaces. The online auction website continues its push into collectible trading cards. The deal, worth up to $295 million, marks eBay’s latest push into the growing trading card market, which experienced a huge boom during the pandemic. eBay has already invested a lot into trading cards recently including a sports card valuation service and a temperature controlled vault for buyers and sellers to store their cards. Finally, news NOT about things going digital.

There’s also a new DCC Chaos Rising offer. Both bundles give you fifty Dungeons of amazing Goodman Games RPG value.

A Redditor posted his results from an experiment with the OpenAI’s GPT-3 software. It was an attempt to get the AI to act as a player character. The test was not completely successful, but yielded some interesting results. The AI played a Wizard and was fond of the 5E spell, Magic Missile. Soon virtual tabletops may no longer need human beings to run fantasy roleplay games. The future is very bright.

A surprise for the TTRPG gamers of Japan happened this week. Wizards of the Coast created an official Twitter account. They tweeted a message saying more information about the future will be announced later in July. This comes after the legal dispute with Gale Force 9 that lead to WotC taking direct control over their localization in Europe and, now apparently, in Japan.

Yesterday, as of this writing, the penalties for online insults and bullying have become more severe in Japan. This follows a high profile case of a Japanese professional female wrestler and reality star committing suicide due to online harrassment. The main perpetrators received a tiny fine of 9,000yen (US$75) each. The mother of the late wrestler held a press conference celebrating the toughening of punishment which now stands at a fine of 300,000yen (US$2,200).

There is a new Bundle of Holding for the Fading Suns 4E Kickstarter by Ulisses Spiele delivered about mid-2020. This 2021 edition of the game is also getting ready to return to Kickstarter with a new expansion, Fading Suns: Lost Worlds. This is your chance to catch up on the latest version if you missed it and also donate to a good cause.

TSR is back! Again? Which one? They have started an IndieGoGo campaign to assist them in suing Wizards of the Coast for libel and slander, mostly concerning the disclaimer that has been added to legacy products. Cortex Prime, owned by Fandom has released the license details for fans interested in developing mods, etc. for the game. The fans are not happy. The agreement appears to give ownership of all free materials developed to Fandom. New expansion for Vaesen by Free League lets players leave the Nordic setting and explore folklore monsters in Britain and Ireland. EN Publishing loses the 200AD license and holds an enormous flash sale of all remaining stock. Forged in the Dark Bundle of Holding give you 4 RPGs using the system, including the original Blades in the Dark designed by John Harper and published by Evil Hat Productions , for only $10. Quite a deal if you have never tried the system and setting.

Some of the most recent cancellations in the tabletop industry. Will GenCon be next? Adam J. Rose is the new head of Grim and Perilous, makers of Zweihander RPG. A list of virtual tabletop software to try in these self-isolating times. Most are offering free access to premium features or a discount for a license. Critical Role played a sponsored one-shot of the Bethesda Softworks videogame, Doom. We are still trying to figure out how they did it.  Bundle of Holding is offering a Solo Games Bundle, including the excellent Ironsworn RPG in the Starter Collection. The Farflung RPG may be our next scifi after dark tabletop session. Is it the only system capable of running the TV series, LEXX? With the future of the human species up in the air, we may or may not be back next week. Keep safe and stay tuned!
