Broken Token fires half of their staff as “necessary changes” after a string of contract withdrawals based on accusations of power abuse by former employees against the CEO. He has also stepped away from his position. Duncan Rhodes, the former face of Warhammer painting tutorials, has moved out on his own and along with a YouTube channel is now releasing a new line of paints, named for his recurring advice of “Two Thin Coats”. Ed Greenwood, the creator of the Forgotten Realms, is releasing a new setting for 5E called Tanares. Avatar Legends has a massively successful Kickstarter that has now reached around $10million. Is this a huge success for Magpie Games or have they bitten of more then they can chew? The expectations of backers and the realities of production need to be balanced, but has this project already gotten away from them? #brokentoken #duncanrhodes #magpiegames #tanares #avatarlegends

Dungeons and Dragons clarifies what is canon and apparently it ain’t Dragonlance. From now on all our new favorite iconic D&D characters will be created live on Twitch. The R. A. Salvatore, creator of Drizzt, admits to being guilty of the fantasy genre’s original sin. The outgoing head of Fantasy Flight Games admits to blindly supporting games with weak expansions and with no plans for a complete experience. Can they do better? Games Workshop Clarifies their intellectual property rules and is doing to their fan animators what we suspected all along. And finally, something heartwarming from the Chinese about the future of tabletop gaming. #Gamesworkshop #dnd #wotc #ffg

We discuss the Lake Geneva Dugeon Hobby Shop museum set to open, or at least get a new parking lot and curator. Also, the list of professionals and events that are distancing themselves from the new TSR grows. Cargo shipping rates are up 300 to 400 percent currently. This is putting pressure on board game companies to shoulder that expense if it is temporary or pass it on to the customers. Probably the likely move. The solution would be stop printing boardgames in China, but why would anyone do that? Finally, for an escape for the ugliness we take a look at Dukk Borg by Gem Room Games and Nerdy Paper Games. A Mork Borg compatible game that combines dark metal and DuckTales. Anything that celebrates death metal aesthetics and Carl Barks influenced duck characters is worth a look.

G4, that gaming network that no one knew still existed, is teaming up with Dungeons and Dragons to broadcast D&D Live, an update to the annual campaign storyline. They are also threatening to get involved with Warhammer Live and Magic: The Gathering. Should be fun. Games Workshop is holding a live event to promote the progress of their animation projects. No details ahead of the event. That’s it. Hope we can see more than another set of trailers. The designer of Frosthaven, the stand-alone sequel to the successful Gloomhaven, posts a response to accussations of racial/cultural insensitivity and hires a cultural consultant. #frosthaven #G4 #warhammeranimation #dnd

Another solo livestream, because these are times we live in. Chris will be back soon. In the meantime, I discuss the Quests of Yore TTRPG starter set based on the Disney/Pixar film, Onward. Quests of Yore: Barley’s Edition is a boxed set that contains everything you need to play this original game as seen in the movie. Jeff Goldblum is playing an elf sorcerer in an actual play series called, Dark Dice. The production values seem high, but will this celebrity voice add to the experience? Writers and Artists guilds untie to #MakeDisneyPay following the settlement with Alan Dean Foster and his missing royalty payments. And finally, the Dungeons and Dragons movie reboot begins filming, aiming for a spring 2023 release. We have heard the cast, but have no idea about the script. Can Hugh Grant chew the scenery as well as Jeremy Irons? Find out in a few years.

Chris was not available making this week a solo show. First, I discuss the rebranding and name change from Idle Red Hands to Upturned Table. Mantic releases second edition public playtest rules for Firefight. Broken Tales by The World Anvil now has an English language quickstart in advance of their May Kickstarter campaign. The Ruins of Symbaroum for 5E is now on Kickstarter bringing the dark fantasy setting by Free League to the world’S greatest roleplaying game. Will it be a good thing for the game by broadening its audience?

This is the live broadcast of our discussion of all things tabletop.

We discuss the cancellation of the Frame RPG by Spencer Campbell on Kickstarter after the fanbase attacks. The first release by former Blizzard execs, Warchief Gaming, is Auroboros for 5E. Also on Kickstarter to celebrate the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, Acheron Books is releasing Dante’s Inferno for 5E. It will include two books, Dante’s Guide to Hell essentially the Player’s Handbook and Virgilio’s Untold Tales which functions as the GM’s Guide and Monster Manual of the setting.

Latest Nibiru Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/xanadunibiru/xanadu-a-nibiru-roleplaying-game-expansion

Nibiru is a science fiction tabletop role playing game set in an ominous space station. It’s focused around the themes of memory, nature and artificiality, and features a rich world (inspired by Ancient Mesopotamia) as well as a quick-to-learn system that builds each player’s persona based on the retelling of their pasts. Nibiru is a space station submerged in the ocean of debris orbiting the Star of Fomalhaut. A monstrous, steel-clad vulture feeding off of a collection of unborn planets, Nibiru’s purpose is unknown—at least, for those that reside in it. Near the Core of this skyless world, a group of enclosed city-states harbors the majority of the human population. The characters portrayed by the players are different from the rest of the peoples of Nibiru. They come from strange places called Habitats, each functioning as an archetype that changes not just the backdrop of your memories, but the mechanics of how you recall them. From Dreamlanders—people that only seem to remember the lives of other individuals—to Vagabonds of the Machine—who share the memories prompted by a sentience-inducing computer virus—each of the five habitats holds mysteries of their own, as well as unique mechanics that make them all the more exciting to play. #nibiru #ttprg #federicosohns #modiphius

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.
