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.

Free League is developing a new version of Twilight 2000 that was funded on Kickstarter. It will be a boxed set and was developed in collaboration with Game Designer’s Workshop. The Chronicle system that powered Green Ronin’s A Song of Ice and Fire RPG will now be available as a setting neutral ruleset called Sword Chronicle. There were some minor to armor and intrigue, but it will play very similar to the first incarnation. Thousand Suns RPG by Grognardia Games and designed by James Maliszewski is worth a look if you are looking for a scfi system that was inspired by the “imperial” science fiction of the 1950s and 60s. It uses a 2d12 system called the 12 Degree system. Chris will play in a session of Visigoths vs. Mall Goths by Lucius Kahn @oh_theogony. Plus a quick explanation of what the medals awarded to DriveThru RPG sellers mean. #indiegames #greenronin #twilight2000
