D&D Beyond, the official digital service for Dungeons & Dragons 5e, recently underwent a major redesign. However, the removal of the option to purchase individual content has sparked outrage among players. Previously, players could buy specific elements from official sourcebooks at a cheaper price than buying the entire book. But with the recent update, players must now purchase the full book to access its content, leading to increased costs and restrictions on customization. This change has drawn criticism from the community, with players expressing concerns about limited character options and higher prices, potentially discouraging new players and increasing costs for existing ones. Some players speculate that these changes are motivated by financial gain, but it’s uncertain how they will ultimately impact the game and its community. 

The 13th Age Second Edition Kickstarter campaign aims to refresh and modernize the popular tabletop RPG. Key features include revamped class powers and revitalized monsters, providing players with a wide array of options for effective gameplay. Character backstory plays a significant role, shaping the game’s narrative and providing bonuses to skill checks. Additionally, the game strengthens storytelling mechanics through icon connections, offering both narrative advantages and consequences. The second edition will consist of two reasonably-sized books: the Player’s Handbook and the Gamemaster’s Guide. These books will include updated rules, monsters, and setting materials. The campaign offers various pledge tiers, including options for digital and physical rewards, as well as limited edition items. Overall, the goal is to enhance the gaming experience while maintaining compatibility with previous editions and supplements.

Talsorian Games is releasing a Cyberpunk: Edgerunners Mission Kit for Cyberpunk Red, inspired by the anime and the Cyberpunk 2077 game. Priced at $35, the kit includes three books totaling 120 pages, providing instructions for new players, lore from Cyberpunk 2077, and backgrounds for characters from the anime. The set also contains a full-length mission titled “The Jacket” set after the events of the anime. The kit features themed dice, standees, tokens, and maps, along with artwork by the anime’s director, Hiroyuki Imaishi. The release is slated for mid-to-late June, available in physical and digital formats.

The Sons of the Singularity are launching a Kickstarter campaign for “The Sassoon Files, 2nd Edition,” a horror campaign for the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game set in 1920s Shanghai. Victor Sassoon leads a diverse team in defending the city against Mythos influence. The new edition doubles the content of the original, featuring expanded scenarios, campaign settings, and improved production. It explores Shanghai’s history and factions like Communists, Nationalists, Triads, and the Japanese, along with the secret Mythos history. The campaign will offer PDF and hardcover versions with scenarios, lore sheets, pre-generated characters, maps, and handouts. The development team includes writers, artists, and a cultural consultant. The Kickstarter launches on May 11th.

Intro song is “Chips” by KokoroNoMe

Hasbro has revealed their plans to “reprint” Heroquest through their HasLab crowd-funding-like website. Honey & Hot Wax is an anthology of sex-positive roleplaying games. The collection of games varies from 2-player to games needing 6 to 12 players along with a facilitator or two. It is published by Pelgrane Press and was edited by Lucian Kahn and Sharang Biswas with a foreword by Naomi Clark of Consentacle. An open license for creating content for Mork Borg, the award-winning game published by Free League. The latest Adventurer’s League Guide contains new custom racial ability score rules. This gives us a preview of the new rules that Wizards of the Coast will be adding to 5E in the release of Tasha’s Cauldron of Everything coming soon. We lament the failure of 2020 as the year of Dune, with only the boardgame reprint being released while the Denis Villeneuve feature film and Modiphius 2d20 system will not be released until next year.
