Beyond the Gates of Antares created by Tim and Rick Priestley and published by Warlord Games is being discontinued. The miniatures will continue to be produced by Skytrex. The game will get a free second edition from the original creators and a new website to support the game separate from Warlord. So players of the game are not being abandoned and thankfully the games remains in the hands of its creators.

Hasbro buys D&D Beyond from Fandom for almost $150 million. This will create more of an ecosystem for Wizards of the Coast to offer digital materials for the game and also collect valuable data from its players. Both the president of Hasbro and Wizards are former Microsoft executives, so this first major purchase of a digital platform is not surprising. D&D Beyond will retain its original management and continue as usual with the only change being the oversight of Hasbro. The only missing piece of the puzzle is a virtual tabletop. Will Roll20 be next?

A quick side note. We missed the news a few weeks back that Paizo will be converting one of their Pathfinder Adventure Paths, Abomination Vaults, for Dungeons and Dragons 5E. Is this just an attempt by Paizo to reach a wider audience and boost the sales of their adventures or does this mean the beginning of the end for Pathfinder? According to Roll20 session data Pathfinder has slipped considerably in recent years with D&D accounting more than 50% of online game sessions.

Fearsome Wilderness is an RPG using the Year Zero Engine about a prison ship that crashes on a densely wooded planet inhabited by unnatural fearsome critters of American lumberjack folklore. The horror is compounded by the fact that waking up from such an extended period of hibernation can do strange things to the mind. A free trial version of the game is available on DriveThruRPG.

Tainted Grail, the boardgame by Awaken Realms, is getting a sequel called Kings of Ruin. The sequel will be crowdfunded on Gamefound, their tabletop funding platform that launched earlier this year. The original game that was released in 2018 the biggest Kickstarter of that year, raising over $6.4 million and is now getting a second edition as part of this release. The new edition of the game promises more refined mechanics and gameplay with additional storylines. Hopefully this will help them establish Gamefound as a legitimate alternative to Kickstarter.

And finally, Games Workshop is partnering with Moon Pig to bring us licensed Warhammer 40k custom birthday cards. Emperor Preserve Us!

An English edition of the Household TTRPG design by Italian studio 2LM Press is being released by CMON who recently purchased the studio. The setting involves playing Littlings, small creatures like Faeries and Boggarts that originated in European folklore.

Some disturbing information has come out concerning the creator of the Empire of the Petal Throne and the Tekumel setting, one of the earliest roleplaying settings that wasn’t Dungeons and Dragons. It was discovered that Professor M.A.R. Barker wrote Serpent’s Walk , an anti-Semitic novel that was published under a pseudonym in 1991. What does the mean for the future of the setting and the Tekumel Foundation?

Late to the game as they were with the popularity of X-wing, WhizKids is producing a skirmish boardgame based on Dungeons and Dragons. The game designer, Nicholas Yu, revealed on Twitter that he is working on D&D: Onslaught. The game was shown off at GAMA and will feature a Combat Dial system to track stats.

The Dark Souls TTRPG will use 5E of the world’s greatest roleplaying game. It will attempt to simulate the stamina mechanic in the videogame with what they are calling Position. Orc Borg will soon be crowdfunded by Rowan, Rook and Decard. In this Mork Borg based expansion players are orcs trapped on a spaceship flying towards a crash landing on some unfortunate planet. New mechanics should make it convincingly Orcish…Orcesque? Orcy? Paizo will work with Gale Force Nine to produce three boardgames based on their Pathfinder and Starfinder settings. The makers of Forbidden Psalm, the miniature skirmish game for the Mork Borg RPG setting, will be releasing a new expansion called Forbidden Psalm: The Final War. It will be a small-scale Skirmish game, you play with a crew of 5 miniatures per player, against AI controlled monsters in scenarios that take you across the wastes of the Last War. You will be able to play as enemies, cooperatively or play solo mode.

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.
