Our 100th episode! WizKids is creating a Dungeons and Dragons line of paints and miniatures on sprues, supposedly system agnostic. They are targeted at beginners, but will they cannibalize their pre-painted offerings? Unearthed Arcana is now officially off D&D Beyond. This previously served to circulate playtest materials, but it may have created more controversy for WotC than it was worth. Finally, we discuss the odd offering that is Warhammer+ It is a costly venture that Games Workshop has zero experience in doing well. Their previous apps and video content would not command a subscription price. So what is the motive? Leaving physical products to license an IP or making yourself appealing to Hasbro for sale? Only the heretical forces of the immaterium know!

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

Cubicle 7 is releasing Victoriana, one of their first RPGs for 5E. With Games Workshop preferring eBay to your FLGS, exit that queue and back the new expansion for Forbidden Psalm, a miniatures skirmish game using the setting of the Mork Borg TTRPG. WotC is playtesting Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos, based on the Magic: The Gathering cars set and stinking of Hogwarts. Finally, comicbook publisher, Magnetic Press, is getting into game publishing. They are planning releases to support their comics series, starting with Carbon Grey. They will also license Chaosum’s Call of Cthulhu to publish a series of expansions. #forbiddenpsalm #strixhaven #magneticpress #victoriana5e

Five Parsecs from Home is a solo adventure wargame. by Ivan Sorensen. Modiphius is publishing a physical copy of the third edition. Reign in Hell is fast, brutal demonic themed tabletop wargame by Adam Loper and Vince Venturella at Snarling Badger Games. Similar to Warcry and Kill Team even down to using the same size playmats. Both games are minitures agnostic rulesets to play with miniatures and terrain you probably already have. And finally the Star Wars sequel trilogy is sited as an example in a current legal decision, proving the with legal precedence those films do suck.

Games Workshop announced the platform for their eleven animated series. Warhammer Plus. No further details given until next month, neither price nor additional content. Netflix is actively looking into developing games and has approached veteran game designs. After the failure of Amazon, owner of Twitch, to become a game developer, it doesn’t make much sense. Finally, Asmodee and Paizo announced they will not attend the physical event in Indianapolis, but will provide virtual supports with online gaming sessions and Livestreams. There will also be PopUp GenCon support at local game stores.

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

In the lawsuit between Apple and Epic the Itch.io app for PC that is accessible on the Epic Store was used to attack Epic and the Unspeakable Games that can be downloaded. Games Workshop still thinks a pandemic is a good time to release a new version of their tabletop wargames. Following last years 9th edition of Warhammer 40k, they announced the 3rd edition of Warhammer Age of Sigmar at their online Warhammer Fest. In other Games Workshop news they appear to be abandoning Japan and we have the evidence. Will the physical stores remain? What will happen to all the translation and localization? And finally, a product of the lockdowns and the desire to game in the Warhammer Fantasy Battles Old World has led to the discovery of a great community of Warmaster gaming.

Games Workshop licensing is now open to proposals for merchandise using the Warhammer IP. This includes crowdfunding those projects on Kickstarter. The authors of the Dragonlance novels, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, are suing Wizards of the Coast due to the breakdown of the revision process for the first draft of the first book of the, now in doubt, next trilogy of novels. Our topic this week is about using horror in your tabletop games. What are the considerations and how should you pace a one-shot or campaign?

Orion Black quits their position at Wizards of the Coast and releases a long statement explaining why. An open letter to Games Workshop is posted as a response to their “Warhammer is for everyone” inclusivity statement and especially the ending ” You will not be missed.” Critical Role responds to a claim fo unpaid employment. Dungeons and Dragons now prints a legacy disclaimer on all of their digital publications prior to 2014. Quest, an adventure game, not an RPG, by The Adventure Guild has been released with ambitions to also create a publishing platform. Will the tabletop hobby see its own “Epic Gamestore” muscle in on DriveThruRPG?
