The Twilight Accord

The guards shifted nervously, coughing a bit, breath fogging in the chill night air. They were all a bit uneasy, and with good reason.

Neon Shadows

TL;DR – So can I use Cyberpunk Slice with Modern AGE to (ahem) run an urban fantasy cyberpunk game? YES! Grab both books (and maybe Modern AGE Companion while you’re at it) and you’ll rock it! With the release of Cyberpunk Slice for Modern AGE, AGE System players have a new resource for creating campaigns […]

Blue Rose Meets Cthulhu Awakens!

What does Cthulhu Awakens have to offer players and Narrators of Blue Rose? A great deal, as it turns out, even if you don’t want Outer Gods and Great Old Ones threatening the world of Aldea.

Gen Con Report 2021

Another Gen Con is in the books, and what an unusual Gen Con it was, in many regards.
