Roll20 has acquired Demiplane, a character management and creation toolset, to enhance its virtual tabletop (VTT) platform. This acquisition aims to create a seamless user experience for tabletop RPG players, allowing them to buy RPG content, manage characters, and play games in one place. Roll20 CEO Ankit Lal emphasized the goal of connecting gamers and providing a comprehensive digital toolkit for various game systems. Demiplane’s integration will support new game systems and Kickstarter campaigns with digital options. Demiplane CEO Peter Romenesko mentioned efforts to merge the two platforms’ features. The acquisition won’t immediately impact users, but Demiplane’s development team, minus executive Adam Bradford, will stay intact. Bradford has joined SmiteWorks, the owner of Fantasy Grounds, as Chief Development Officer.

Steamforged Games has acquired the Iron Kingdoms universe, including the Warmachine wargame, Formula P3 paints, and the Iron Kingdoms RPG series, from Privateer Press. This acquisition aims to enhance the gaming experience for players through a collaboration between Steamforged and Privateer Press on design and development. Steamforged, known for its successful game development, plans to transition the range to its website, ensuring a smooth changeover while honoring existing orders. The acquisition is expected to strengthen the miniature gaming community, with continued support for related events and upcoming releases, including a Kickstarter for the Iron Kingdoms RPG.

Meta has confirmed that it uses public Instagram images to train its AI image generator, sparking outrage among users, especially artists. Many are considering leaving Instagram due to this and the platform’s declining reach. Despite the backlash, opting out is complicated and mainly available to EU users. Superstar artist J. Scott Campbell advised artists to remain on major platforms like Instagram for business growth, though he has joined the artist-friendly platform Cara. Cara promises to filter out AI-generated content and offers an alternative for those concerned about AI’s ethical issues. Campbell also suggests artists build direct connections with their audience through mailing lists.

SmiteWorks, the developer behind the virtual tabletop software Fantasy Grounds, has hired Adam Bradford as its Chief Development Officer. Bradford, known for founding D&D Beyond and leading Demiplane, brings significant experience to his new role. At SmiteWorks, he will focus on expanding Fantasy Grounds’ market presence, enhancing user engagement, and improving user experience. Doug Davison, President of SmiteWorks, expressed confidence in Bradford’s ability to drive growth and innovation. Bradford is enthusiastic about contributing to the success of Fantasy Grounds and aims to modernize its visual identity.

Publisher Free League Publishing introduces “Replicant Rebellion,” a new expansion for Blade Runner: The Roleplaying Game. Based on the films and Philip K. Dick’s novel, the game usually casts players as Blade Runners. This expansion, however, recruits them into the Replicant Underground, a group fighting for Replicant freedom. Players will perform various missions, grappling with ethical dilemmas reminiscent of the original 1982 film and its sequel. The expansion, funded via Kickstarter from May 28th, maintains the franchise’s themes of corporate exploitation and empathy for Replicants.

The tactical sci-fi franchise BattleTech celebrates its 40th anniversary with a new edition of the original board game. Set to release on June 12, it features updated box art, eight miniatures, and various game materials. Preorders are available for $60, with discounts on other BattleTech products. The franchise, which began in 1984, has expanded into various media but remains rooted in its tabletop origins.

The American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) criticized Adobe’s “skip the photoshoot” ad campaign, accusing it of undermining photographers’ work. In an open letter, ASMP Chair Gabriella Marks emphasized the irreplaceable skill and creativity of photographers, urging Adobe to support the industry rather than diminish it. The letter reflects growing tensions between traditional artistry and AI advancements in digital media.

Outgunned Adventure by 2 Little Mice is inspired by classic pulp adventures like Indiana Jones, is the first Genre Book in the Outgunned Line. Players become adventurers seeking treasures, using the Director’s Cut system with six-sided dice. Following the success of the original Outgunned game, this expansion introduces new “Action Flicks” and supplements, enhancing the cinematic roleplaying experience. The upcoming crowdfunding campaign promises additional content and surprises.

“Darkness at the Brink of Ohio” is a new solo tabletop roleplaying game designed by Banana Chan. The game follows the transformation of a late-night radio DJ into something horrific and otherworldly. Set in Akron, Ohio, players choose one of three characters (a clinical lab tech, a gas station attendant, or a security guard) as they listen to a horrific event involving DJ Mike from 106.6: The Brink. The game includes a soundtrack released for free on YouTube. Themes in this solo RPG include parasocial relationships and hypervisibility within a small fanbase. The book will be approximately 100-125 pages with a cover illustrated by Michael Croteau.

One More Multiverse, a virtual tabletop app, is closing down after four years. It offered pixel-art sprites and a user-friendly interface for playing RPGs online. The app supported games like Blades in the Dark and Yazeba’s Bed and Breakfast. Despite efforts, sustainability became an issue. Assets and verses created by players will remain accessible for 90 days. The closure announcement precedes the official release date for Yazeba’s. Players have 90 days to download or screenshot their creations. A well-crafted alternative to platforms like Roll20 and D&D Beyond, it’s unfortunate to see it go.

The 2024 edition of Dungeons & Dragons will feature Greyhawk as a sample setting in the Dungeon Master’s Guide. Greyhawk, one of the original D&D campaign settings created by Gary Gygax, will be showcased with a double-sided poster map including the City of Greyhawk and the Flanaess. The setting is presented as a template for Dungeon Masters to create their own worlds, with enough detail to bring Greyhawk to life but also leaving room for customization. The release is part of D&D’s 50th-anniversary celebration, highlighting Greyhawk’s classic fantasy elements and its potential for new adventures. The Dungeon Master’s Guide is set to release on November 12, 2024.

The Savage World of Solomon Kane RPG is based on the works of Robert E. Howard and allows players to embark on adventures as Solomon Kane, a hero battling evil in the 17th century. The game emphasizes themes of good versus evil and encourages gamemasters to create a grim setting where players can fight against darkness. The Savage Worlds Adventure Edition (SWADE) system is used for its simplicity and ease of play. The content for this RPG is Kickstarter Exclusive and will not be available through retail.

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.

CMON Limited has acquired Japon Brand, known for representing Japanese game designers and licensing their games internationally. Japon Brand’s president, Akio Nomura, aims to continue supporting Japanese game designers with CMON’s backing. Kadokawa Group has acquired Arclight, a major board game publisher in Japan, to expand its analog game development business. 

Wizards of the Coast has announced a collaboration with Hatsune Miku, the Vocaloid virtual idol for a Secret Lair drop. The set will initially be published in English and Japanese. When will this licensing madness end?

Hasbro is investing over $1 billion in internal game development, focusing on original IP like the upcoming game Exodus. This is motivated by the licensing deals of Baldur’s Gate 3 and Monopoly GO that have proven very lucrative. Just like their Haslab crowdfunding platform, their greed has motivated them to bring it all in-house thinking they will have the same success. 

GOBLINKO! has introduced Dungeon Degenerates: The Battle For Brüttelburg, a dark fantasy RPG. This 8-bit retro inspired action RPG will include mini games and a digital card game all set in the Dungeon Degenerates world setting.

Star Trek Adventures – Second Edition is available for pre-order, featuring streamlined rules, eliminating d6 challenge dice and adding expanded content. Additionally, First Edition products are on sale at a 50% discount. The first edition content will be “broadly compatible” with the new edition.

MEKBORG and STEEL PSALM are two books that take the raw, old-school, d20-friendly rules of MÖRKBORG and dip them headfirst into post-apocalyptic, mechanical, MEK-KNIGHT mayhem, drawing inspiration from robot-on-robot combat, doom metal aesthetics, and more. Fight over the scraps of what little remains in an easy-to-learn campaign setting that puts aesthetics and mood before rules and crunch.

The companies that previously made Embracer’s games portfolio are also tasked with paying off its $1.5 billion debt. The company announced it is splitting into three separate entities: Asmodee, Coffee Stain & Friends, and Middle-earth Enterprises & Friends. Now, CEO Lars Wingefors claims it’s all part of a plan to eventually make good games and make money from them.

Free League announced a new tabletop miniatures game of skirmish combat today. Titled Mutant Year Zero: Zone Wars, and set in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Mutant Year Zero, the game joins its lofty brethren Fallout: Wasteland Warfare and Fallout Factions in giving everyone, everywhere some kind of post-apocalyptic skirmish game to play.

This is Free Trader Beowulf is a history of the Traveller RPG. Traveller is the first science fiction role-playing game ever published, and its history is fascinating. If you have ever wondered where Traveller came from and how it has evolved over its many editions, this is the PDF for you.

Coordinating your online tabletop group for a game night is going to get a little bit easier. Popular virtual tabletop tool Roll20 is coming to Discord, integrating right into the chat and voice platform. So, instead of running Roll20 separately in a browser with some other voice client, you can start the activity from right inside Discord itself.

Maggot Machine is a new RPG from Nightfall Games, featuring a rules-light system called V6, set in a world of lost technology and mutated monsters.

The game is available as a hardback book with 128 full-color pages.

Monolith gains the intellectual property rights of Rackham, potentially reviving old games like Confrontation and AT-43. This decision was made by the Paris Commercial Court and clarifies ownership of the Rackham IPs. Previously, Monolith gained the rights to the Conan The Barbarian RPG. 

Kickstarter introduces a new feature allowing creators to collect money indefinitely after their campaigns end, similar to Indiegogo’s “forever funding” model. This is similar to what companies have been doing off-site or in pledge manager with late pledges.

Cynthia Williams, President of Wizards of the Coast, resigns, leaving the company to search for her successor. Is this the Chance Kyle Brink has been waiting for?

Adventure Time’s official tabletop RPG is launching with a 5E version first, with plans for a later release of the original ‘Yes And’ system developed by Forever Stoked. The campaign is live on Kickstarter and we will have to wait and see if both systems will be published.

BlackMilk, an Australian clothing brand, has revealed a new collection in collaboration with Dungeons & Dragons to celebrate the franchise’s 50th anniversary. The collection, featuring a variety of clothing items adorned with D&D icons, will be available for order next week. Previous collaborations by BlackMilk with franchises like Star Wars and Pokemon have been well-received for their stylish and functional designs. The collection includes items such as dresses, robes, jackets, knit sweaters, blazers, and pants, showcasing designs ranging from subtle D&D logos to portraits of iconic characters. To ensure availability, BlackMilk advises subscribing to their newsletter and creating an account on their website. Social media reactions suggest high anticipation for the collection, which is set to release on April 8th at 5pm EST.

An expansion titled “Sundered Isles” for the sci-fi RPG “Ironsworn: Starforged” has been announced, offering seafaring adventures in a fantasy Age of Sail setting. The expansion includes new gameplay options, character choices, and tools for worldbuilding, promising swashbuckling adventures amidst mariners, rebels, and empires. Developed by Shawn Tomkin, this expansion originated as a digital stretch goal in the Starforged Kickstarter campaign and is now nearing completion.

A product called “Doppel” is introduced, offering a digital miniature for tabletop RPGs. Doppel features LED screens, custom audio effects, motion detection, and compatibility with popular RPG games. It aims to enhance gaming experiences by bringing characters to life with dynamic visuals and immersive sounds. The device also includes an app for character management and customization, fostering a deeper connection with gaming personas and facilitating shared narratives among players. Doppel’s compact design and multimedia integration provide a modern alternative to traditional miniatures, while promoting social interaction among players.

Troika!, a surreal and strange tabletop RPG series, is offering a charity bundle with a 20% discount on several books, with proceeds benefiting Doctors Without Borders. The bundle, available through independent bookstore Iglootree, includes five physical sourcebooks at a reduced price, supporting humanitarian aid efforts. 

The comics community mourns the loss of acclaimed comics creator Ed Piskor, known for works like “Hip-Hop Family Tree” and “X-Men: Grand Design.” Piskor’s passing follows recent allegations of misconduct, and his death has prompted an outpouring of condolences from fans and colleagues.
