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.

Games Workshop has announced with a switcheroo April Fools joke that Squats will be returning to the Warhammer 40k setting. Now called the very trademarkable Leagues Of Votann, these space dwarf miniatures look a bit more generic than their original incarnation. This crosses off another longtime fan request following plastic Sisters of Battle from a fews years back.

Mongoose Publishing will be Kickstarting a new tabletop RPG called Shield Maidens. This original setting will combine Norse mythology with Cyberpunk elements. Players take the role of high technology cyberpunk armor and weaponry equipped women warriors as the Fenrir empire spread, the supply of Ymir’s Blood begins to dwindle and the Ragnarok approaches. The most difficult question to answer is will you play Viking Metal or Synthwave during your gaming session? Maybe both?

Disappointingly, the official Blade Runner TTRPG by Free League will be crowdfunding on Kickstarter this May. This contradicts their approach with the Alien RPG releasing the game directly to retail preorder. We are sure they have their reasons and hopefully the campaign will lead to a larger release than direct to retail would allow. Following The One Ring Second Edition, it is yet another IP that should have a built-in audience that would support it without crowdfunding. Let’s hope it is the best decision and not the beginning of a good publisher starting to lean too heavily on licensed IPs.

Finally, we want to bring your attention to a few free RPG goodies. They may be available for a limited time so have a look before the promotion ends. #wh40kSquats #shieldmaidens #bladerunner #DCC

We take a look at RPG Kitchen, a try before you buy online stoerfront for RPGs. Will this help indie developers get more exposure for their projects? Goodman Games is Kick-starting a setting for Jack Vance’s Dying Earth, one of the major influences for early D&D. Three main sourcebooks are being produced as well as 6 adventures in a boxed set. The books and illustrations are full of old school goodness. Chaosium is celebrating the 40th anniversary of Call of Cthulhu by Kick-starting a reprint of the 1st edition in both a 1 inch and 2 inch boxed set. The 1 inch includes the original contents of the game and the 2 inch includes 5 additional early supplements. There is no longer any company named TSR. The publisher of the Top Secret RPG has changed their name to Solarian Games and the controversial most recent interaction of TSR that included Ernie Gygax is now going by name Wonderfilled Inc. We previously questioned whether a new TSR could compete in the current OSR market, but this may just simply be proof that you can’t go home again. #rpgkitchen #tsr #chaosium #callofcthulhu #dcc #dyingearth #goodmangames #keepgamingfantasy
