Reports from GenCon 2022 of harassment of PoC and LGBTQ+ attendees lead people to think that personal info had been leaked by organizers. The harassing messages were in the form of text messages and phone calls. GenCon stated that they only contact attendees by e-mail. This is an unfortunate situation after having the convention canceled two years in a row due to the pandemic.

SpiceDAO, the crypto fan group that purchased a copy of the Jodorowsky’s Dune production bible for a ridiculous amount of money, is no more. Spice Club is the new and much poorer iteration. They are looking for a buyer for the book and are making NFTs with Frank Miller. None of this makes any damn sense.

Dragons and Demons (Drakar och Demoner) is finally being released in English by Free League. This is just in time for the 40th anniversary of its first appearance in Sweden. It will be called Dragonbane and the project will be on Kickstarter. The announcement also hinted at an updated version of the rules. Now we know what happened to the rights with the IP sale that RiotMinds recently announced. Better late than never?

Privateer Press is bringing us a new version of Warmachine. Warmachine MkIV will also fold in the Hordes setting as well. It will feature and streamlining of the rules set and new miniatures. The miniatures will be 3D printed in-house, possibly SioCast, which may help the international market. If and when they set up foreign production. Are you excited for a miniatures game that only existed because Games Workshop was so incompetent? Or will is all forgiven for their distribution problems with MkIII? And last, but not least,

Wicked Ones is returning to Kickstarter for an off-set printed edition and new standalone expansion called Undead Awakening. The game uses the Forged in the Dark system and features excellent artwork. We hope to soon get an interview with Ben Nielson from Bandit Camp about the project and the origin of this popular game. And for once we will be in the same time zone, because Bandit Camp is also based in Japan! #gencon #wickedones #warmachine #dragonbane

Astral Virtual Tabletop has suspended active development, but is exploring ways for it to continue into the future. In the meantime, Astral will remain open as long as they are able to maintain their server costs. This is sad news and hopefully there will be some company interested in keeping it going. The platform had the support of DriveThruRPG so the visibility should have helped it. The quality of their “official” content was not amazing but the software itself was quite usable. Let’s hope for the best.

Following the successful 2021 Kickstarter of Pathfinder for Savage Worlds the second oldest adventure path is now being adapted to the Savage Worlds system. Curse of the Crimson Throne is now available along with the Advanced Player’s Guide adapted to Savage Worlds. All of the releases from the previous Kickstarter are also available. The website also encourages you to order directly from their website if you want the older boxed sets right away.

Free RPG Day 2022 will be held on June 25th in North America and July 23rd for the rest of the world outside of North America. Many of the usual companies will be offering adventures and accessories to get new players and old ones to enjoy their hobby together. Physical items are available at your local games store and most companies offer the same content on their website in PDF form for the next month.

MyMiniFactory acquires 3DC, owner of only-games.co , a leading on demand manufacturer of assets for gaming. Their vision to enable a MetaReverse for Indie 3D Creators and Makers is advancing with this acquisition. Indie Creators will soon be empowered to monetize their creations in digital & physical formats. A very exciting next step for the 3D printing space.

We look back at 2020 and all the things that could have been great but had to suffer from our global condition. The Witcher and Tales From the Loop hit TV. Mork Borg and Ironsworn caught our attention as outstanding RPGs. Warcaster: Neo Mechanical by Privateer Press came and went. GenCon 2020 was cancelled along with everything else. The Dead Milkmen released the Lost Tomb of the Bitchin Chimera for 5E. Heroquest was update and released on HasLab. The Quest RPG still has us curious. Cyberpunk Red on the tabletop preceded the unfinished and buggy Cyberpunk 2077 for PC and consoles. This was not the Year of Dune as we previously predicted. Games Workshop releases the 9th edition of Warhammer 40k and really screwed anybody trying to sell their games, but their webstore. Alan Dean Foster was not paid by Disney and thinks Rey should have been a droid. And finally, the KFConsole is the joke that won’t go away.

Fantasy Flight Games is moving the production of their RPGs to Edge Entertainment. Plaid Hat Games founder, Colby Dauch, is reacquiring the company from Fantasy Flight Games. They will lose Dead of Winter, Mice and Mystics and Stuffed Fables in the deal. Free RPG Day 2020 will be on June 13th. It is now run by Gaming Days LLC and offers plenty of alternatives to the World’s Greatest Roleplaying Game. To celebrate the release of their Amazon series based on their RPG “Tales From the Loop” Free League Publishing will be release a boxed starter set for the game which included pre-generated characters, a rulebook, an original adventure, map, and 10 custom dice. Warcaster: Neo Machanika by Privateer Press finished a successful Kickstarter campaign. This is their first new wargame IP produced for Kickstarter. It raises a few questions about their motives.
