A new TTRPG based on the new A24 film, directed by David Lowery, “The Green Knight” starring Dev Patel as Gawain. The Green Knight: A Quest for Honor RPG will include a Game Master’s Guide (with Rules of Play, Official Encounters, and A24 Bonus Quests), Map of the Realm, 5 character sheets, and a 20-sided die. NBCUniversal is entering the comic book industry at possibly the worst (or best?) time with the talents of Grant Morrison. Their fist title penned by Morrison will be Proctor Valley Road, the story of a group of girls that are suspected in the murders of teen boys. Hasbro is flexing its IP muscles by combining My Little Pony and Dungeons and Dragons. They will release a set of 5 4 1/2 inch ponies themed on the Rogue, Barbarian, Druid, and Wizard character classes. The set will also include a d20 and a pony-themed GM’s screen. Hasbro is also producing a new board game named “Dungeons and Dragons Adventure Begins”. This game is one of the only D&D items to be branded Hasbro as opposed to Wizards of the Coast. It includes 4 plastic miniatures, 4 20-sided dice, game tiles, and cards. The game is cooperative and made for 2-4 players ages 10 and up. Another D&D gateway product that will probably not find the same young audiences as the amazing Dungeon! or Heroquest games.

Everything you always wanted to know about pen-and-paper role-playing games but were afraid (or couldn’t be bothered) to ask.
The Idle Red Hands are blessed with some great friends who, despite having no clue about RPGs, listen to our podcast. One recommended that we record an episode that explains some of the basic concepts to help him follow along, so we did. This is for him and all those who have ever wondered why some people choose to spend their Saturday nights rolling dice.

This was originally supposed to be episode 1, but there were concerns about the sound quality. As a compromise, we decided to make this episode 0, which apparently makes all the difference in the world.
In this episode, we look at how Japan is treated in roleplaying games, and we offer some recommendations on how Japan can be used to spice up your gaming experience. Yes, someone mentions school girls. I hope this isn’t a sign of things to come.
At some point during the recording, Wayne started to think that the topic was “Things I’ve Seen at Toys ‘R’ Us”. We opted to cut out that part out, but you can still hear Lyal referring to it. Apologies for any confusion this may cause.
