It’s a solo cast this week! Chris is out sick, but through the miracle of modern technology we have a virtual co-host (visit our Twitch or YouTube for the visual). Moon Design Publications, the majority owner, and Black Monk Games form The Chaosium Group. Paizo changes terminology because of connection to real world religious custom. Warhammer 40k holiday candles. And finally, the paper shortage continues to hinder both comics and tabletop.

Rumors that Asmodee wants to sell itself amidst the global cargo and raw materials and production cost increases. CMON Buys Two Little Mice RPG studio makers of Broken Compass. Does this mean more licensed IP RPGs to come? TTRPG Designers from the Global South express frustration reaching the Northern English-speaking markets. Finally a 50th anniversary for Dungeons and Dragons arrives in 2024 and an announcement of “the next Evolution” to celebrate. Does this mean 5.5E or something far darker and alienating for older players? Plus some discussion of running an Enemy Within campaign using Warlock! by Fire Ruby Designs #asmodee #cmon #dnd5e #warlockrpg

Kobold Press collects all of their 5E material into Tome of Heroes. This will give players the choice of 10 new races and 50 subclasses. The new hardcover book is currently on Kickstarter and includes both new and previously published material. Omnichromatic Pirate Unicorn Games has published a guide to Intellectual Property in RPGs. It is currently pay-what-you-want on DriveThruPRG. This is a useful overview of what can be protected and what cannot in the world of RPG design and development. Tiny Library is also currently on Kickstarter. It is an anthology of TTRPGs that can be printed on a single standard size playing card (both sides) and all 50 games can be yours for US$10. John Harper, the creator of the Blades in the Dark RPG, recently tweeted that Warp Films is currently developing a TV series based his RPG setting. Evil Hat Publishes the RPG and no further details have been released regarding dates or platform. There have also been rumors of an Exalted TV series in development based on the RPG of the same name. Is this a new trend in mining ideas for the creatively bankrupt entertainment industry? Are comic books yesterday’s bananas? Remember the Fox TV series based on White Wolf’s Kindred: The Embraced?

We look at all the games currently available for the Mysthea universe by Tabula Games. This includes the original boardgame from their first Kickstarter, Mysthea, the follow-up, Icaion and the card game, Volfyirion. All sharing a very compelling scifi fantasy setting with amazing artwork by Travis Anderson. First, we look at the art book from the original game that contains the setting lore and illustrations. We also have a quick look at Shattered City, a TTRPG set in Mysthea, by UFO Press, that uses the PbtA ruleset. #mysthea #icaion #volfyirion #tabulagames

The three sliders that adjust the revenue split for Humble Bundle disappears. Charities can now only receive a maximum of 15% Ironsworn: Starforged, the scifi stand-alone sequel to Ironsworn, appears on Kickstarter. Jerry Beck, an animation historian, let slip that Warner Bros. appears to be moving away from physical media starting in 2022. That means no more DVD or Blu-ray discs and a pivot toward streaming platforms like their own HBO Max. Is this just for animation or is this the future? What if tabletop RPGs moved away from physical media? Fobidden Psalm is a tabletop 28mm miniatures game inspired and compatible with MÖRK BORG. It is miniatures agnostic and all of the content can also be used in the MÖRK BORG TTRPG. We also discuss the Monster Hunter boardgame by Steamforged Games that just ended on Kickstarter.

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.

After some technical difficulties, we discuss San Diego Comic-Con 2021 being inevitably cancelled following the cancellation of their WonderCon. They will hold  Comic-Con@Home on July 23rd-25th and also announced Comic-Con Special Edition. Special Edition is a scaled-down version of the live event scheduled for Thanksgiving weekend. Should be interesting. Marvel Comics announced they will be ending their 27 year-old exclusive relationship with Diamond Distributors. They signed a new exclusive world-wide deal with Penguin Random House. Later on the day of this announcement Diamond Distributors sent a letter to comic retailers telling them that they will still be carrying Marvel books. A non-exclusive exclusive deal? Your guess is as good as ours. Also, after fallout of the cancellation of the Perfect RPG Kickstarter, Luke Crane will be departing his position at Kickstarter as community head. Finally, we discuss the evolution of the GM from their tribal beginnings to the more recent role of another kind of player, inspired by the article at Cannibal Halfling Gaming.

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.

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.
