The Marvel Multiverse Role-Playing Game announced a release date for its upcoming tabletop RPG. The officially licensed RPG will release a core rulebook in June 2023, followed by an adventure supplement in July. Both books written by Matt Forbeck and artwork by Iban Coello. The core rulebook will package everything a group needs to create their own superheroes and learn the rules. Marvel Multiverse RPG uses three six-sided dice for its s616 system that is both a nod to the prime Marvel universe and Forbeck’s answer to heroic combat where power levels between characters can vary wildly. There is a free playtest still available before the release.

Moonbreaker, a miniature skirmish game on PC, by Unknown Worlds, the developer of Subnautica, wants to make the ‘world’s best digital miniatures game’. Videogames owe a lot to their tabletop counterparts, especially when it comes to turn-based strategy and tactics, but one of the best parts of fielding armies, gets overlooked in the digital realm: model painting. Moonbreaker is trying to do something that more like real tabletop, but for PC gamers. Following the reveal of the One D&D VTT are digital miniatures going to become a thing?

The Settlers of Catan will become a holographic AR board game. Jeri Ellsworth’s intriguing AR headset will create a new version of Catan, one of the most critically acclaimed board games ever made and one that averages over a million copies sold per year. The boardgame will leap off tabletop thanks to a unique augmented reality gaming system that’s been in development for over a decade now. Tilt Five, a startup founded by a former Valve engineer. The company has already had two Kickstarters and has developed 21 AR games.

eBay is acquiring TCGplayer, one of the largest trading card marketplaces. The online auction website continues its push into collectible trading cards. The deal, worth up to $295 million, marks eBay’s latest push into the growing trading card market, which experienced a huge boom during the pandemic. eBay has already invested a lot into trading cards recently including a sports card valuation service and a temperature controlled vault for buyers and sellers to store their cards. Finally, news NOT about things going digital.

Goodman Games have their flagship range in the Bundle of Holding, but only until September 12th. Dungeon Crawl Classics RPG rulebook is back on offer along with introductory modules and expansions. There’s also a new DCC Chaos Rising offer. Both bundles give you fifty Dungeons of amazing Goodman Games RPG value.

Roll20 and OneBookShelf have announced a joint venture that will involve some management shuffling and give you access to all PDFs in the Roll20 VTT… eventually. Not as earth-chattering as some people are making it out to be. It feels more like an excuse to bully smaller publishers that want access to customers and tart yourself up for your eventual buyout by Wizards of the Coast. Good luck with that. This adds convenience but at what cost to the employees, designers and customers of these games. Oh, and did I mention it will also kill the now redundant Astral VTT? It’s just the beginning of a much bigger mess. Roll20 took 10 years to add basic quality of life features to their platform and OBS has the worst backend of any online sales platform. A match made in heaven.

The latest official adventure for Troika! is now on Kickstarter. The Big Squirm is a hard-boiled mystery about speculative worm trading. Players are private detectives and in an open sandbox adventure with a series of clues to uncover by any means necessary. Written by Luke Gearing, previously of Acid Death Fantasy, it will be a 100-page hardcover book with over 40 pieces of art by Andrew Walter and of course published by the Melsonion Arts Council.

Miss White Boy Summer? Well now we have the Summer of 2d20. Modiphius is promoting the release of their 2d20 SRD with a sale of all of their published 2d20 systems in both physical and digital form. The sale is 20% off and includes games like Dune: Adventures in the Imperium, Star Trek Adventures, Fallout the Roleplaying Game, Dishonored, Infinity, Conan, John Carter of Mars, Mutant Chronicles, and Achtung! It runs for 48 hours starting July 20th which they have officially named 2d20 Day. In addition to all that, there will a collaboration with Mōdiphiüs xStartplaying.Games, the group finding platform for VTTs All participating Gamemasters who run a 2d20 game with at least two verified players during this period will be entered into a random draw to win one prize of $1,000 USD to spend on the Modiphius webstore, and three players can win one of three $100 USD Did you notice the theme with the number twenty in all that? Marketing!

And finally, proof that Stockholm Kartell’s hit TTPRG isn’t just and art project that escaped to your tabletop. Mork Borg: Barebones Edition is now available for FREE. It is all the text of the original yellow book with the art and much of the graphic design removed. The PDF is available on Johan Nohr’s Itch.io page as Pay what you want. Hopefully, he had the task of dismantling his beautiful doom metal art masterpiece himself so that it maintained some of the wonderful feel of the full volume edition.

Mantic Games has announced that they will launch a new Boardgames Division. This will focus on family-friendly and licensed-IP games. They want to be able to create projects that will be crowd-funded on Gamefound and will be one and done including expansions that are funded. The idea is to free them from one the wargaming space and also to make games that will lead players to the existing Mantic IPs.

BackerKit posts a surprise announcement that they are in beta as a full-fledged crowdfunding platform. They will officially launch in 2023 and already have over 30 companies committed to the platform. This includes Cephalofair Games, creator of the popular Gloomhaven and Frosthaven games. Isaac Childres, owner of Cephalofair, stated concerns over the announcement by Kickstarter to embrace blockchain technology that precipitated the move. BackerKit tools will still be available to Kickstarter campaigns.

We were contacted by Louis Simspon, managing director of Troll Trader, telling us that our discussion of the circumstances of the closure of Secret Weapon Miniatures was completely incorrect. He referred us to a statement posted by his company and the details when compared to the Secret Weapon Kickstarter update posted by Justin McCoy, nothing matches up. The truth lies somewhere in between. We under no circumstances want to damage the reputation of Troll Trader by our discussion. They are a company I have personally bought from in the past. The details are quite interesting so we will discuss them.

Following up on last week’s announcement, we get a statement from the CEO of Embracer Group explaining why Saudi Arabia is a good business partner and how they discussed difficult topics prior to this investment. So we have nothing to worry about and money is money so keep feeding that machine. Just remember to wipe off the blood and human rights abuses!

Secret Weapon Miniatures announced they will be closing back in August 2021. Now we have more details. It seems Trolltrader/TT Combat (TTC) has claimed claimed IP on their HD Bases Kickstarter Campaign, making it impossible for them to get the project sent out. SWM say the claims are false. This has caused the company to default on their lons with USBank who no owns their IP. Justin McCoy posted an update on the Kickstarter page regarding the status of the company. This is a sad end to a company that mande some great looking bases, paints and dungeon tiles.

Teberu by the Italian company Xplored had a successful Kickstarter that is still working on hitting its fulfillment date of April 2023. There is also still the option to pledge late. IT still looks like the success of the technology will rely on partnerships with board game publishers and tabletop companies to get players to give it a shot. The system relies on an interactive tablet, bases for miniatures wirth sensors and LEDs and wireless dice. Because rolling dice with wires usually breaks the immersion.

Monte Cook Games has announced plans to release an open licence for the company’s popular Cypher System that will allow independent artists to create their own titles within its rule set. The Kansas-based publisher, which handles the fantastical Numenera and Invisible Sun setting along with The Strange and kids-focused No Thank You, Evil! Series, outlined its plans in a June 7th blog post to its website. The Cypher System Open Licence will launch sometime this summer and allow designers to “freely create and market tabletop roleplaying games compatible with” the Cypher System, according to the post.

The kingdom of Saudi Arabia has made another major investment in the videogame industry, investing more than $1 billion to acquire an 8.1% stake in Swedish gaming behemoth Embracer Group. The shares will be issued to Savvy Gaming Group, a games and esports-focused subsidiary of the country’s Public Investment Fund. Saudi Arabia has made a number of major moves into the game space in 2022, through both the Public Investment Fund and the Electronic Gaming Development Company, which between them have made significant investments in Capcom(opens in new tab), Nexon, Nintendo, ESL Gaming, and SNK prior to the Embracer deal.

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!

Free League and Titans Books will collaborate to publish three original novels that are tied into the AlienRPG campaign storylines. This project will be supervised by Andrew EC Gaska the writer of the Alien RPG campaigns. The original Dungeons and Dragons Gold Box games from the 1980s are returning to PC. Relive these classic early PCRPG adventures and their old school settings originally by SSI. Emanoel Melo’s Cyberpunk TTRPG uses a minimalist version of the acclaimed Forged In The Dark system to encourage cinematic action and a spiraling series of consequences and is now on Kickstarter to produce a physical edition. Kickstarter sets a new record for tabletop projects funded in 2021. Plus they are hiring for their community advisory council.

Modiphius announces the end of their license to produce the Mutant Chronicles TTRPG third edition. All of their current stock of MC material will be half price until June when it will be discontinued. This will also include the remaining stock of their Siege of the Citadel. Did that delayed Kickstarter have anything to do with the end of their license? WizKids will collaborate with Kid Robot to produce a series of 3-inch vinyl figures based on the Dungeons and Dragons first edition Monster Manual. This set will include 14 blind boxes of the miniatures with a slightly chibi design thanks to Kid Robot. It is an odd translation of the original 1E illustrations. Critical Role ran a one shot of an Elden Ring RPG sponsored by Bandai Namco. Will it be a modified 5E or something closer to the upcoming Dark Souls TTRPG? Critical Role also announced another theatrical event partnered with Cinemark to bring their season three campaign to theaters. $40 gets you a ticket and a t-shirt. Round up the Critters and find a cinema near you! Oh, and Cursed City returns. No reasons given.
