Pixelated posts: The Warrior

We’ve got a new project in the works, and for now, it’s top secret. But we aren’t complete monsters, so we’ll show you sneak peeks of it until the whole thing is ready to be revealed! And the first preview is the fearsome Warrior! He is the mighty protector and guard with a powerful shield, but don’t take that sharp sword for granted as the Warrior knows quite well how to use it.

Enchiridion Alchimia out now!

The Enchiridion Alchimia is finally out! It’s been a year in the making, and now it’s on DriveThruRPG for you to grab.

The Alchimia is the sequel to the great Enchiridion Sigillum, and follows in the footsteps of its older brother. the Sigillum gave you all the tools necessary to craft your very own unique spells, incantations and runic magic. The Alchimia does the very same, but with alchemy. Everything you need to know about alchemy is in this book: how to acquire and prepare your reagents, how to set up your lab, how to mix Alkahest and reagents to create concoctions, absolutely everything.

We’ve even got a section about astrology, so that you can use the planets, stars, phases of the moon, and even the seasons to your advantage to make the very best alchemical concoctions that you can.

There’s a hundred reagents in the book, and they can be combined in a near-infinite number of ways, meaning that you can literally create any alchemical potion, oil or poison that you can imagine. With another hundred recipes in the Alchimia, there is enough there to get you started and to get the creative juices flowing.

And to top it all off, we’ve got special recipes for creating a Chimaera, a Homunculus, and of course the Mangum Opus: the Philosopher’s Stone.

So if you want to be the very best alchemist like no one ever was, CLICK HERE to get your hands on the Enchiridion Alchimia.

Hunter Corps has been updated to v1.1 with a bunch of changes, additions and fixes to make it even a more awesome game than before.

To celebrate the new version, and the one month anniversary of Hunter Corps’ release, it’s on sale for 20% off for the next two weeks.

So get in while the sale lasts to get your hands on Hunter Corps. You can grab it HERE from DriveThruRPG, or HERE from itch.io.

Runed Age 1.5 now live!

The Runed Age grand update is finally complete and Runed Age 1.5 is now available from DriveThruRPG by clicking on the banner above.

There’s a lot of new things in the book, a few things removed, and quite a bit changed as well, so if you’ve already purchased it, have a good look through it to see what’s new.

What we’ve done is taken all the lessons we’ve learned from Z-LAND and the Sigil System and included it in Runed Age. The Runed Age was the first game we ever made, so it just seemed fitting to make sure it’s as up to date as possible. So you’ll find the new Perks and Quirks advancement system in there, new Downtime sub-system, more detail on gear and weaponry, a smoothed and cleaned up character creation, and new mechanics for how to use the runic magic system in game.

We’ve also made it into a hardcover book, and we are just waiting for the proof copy to come in from the printer before putting that on sale as well. And if you purchase the Runed Age digital version before that happens, we’ll sell you the hardcover at cost price because we’re just that nice.

Gates Public Beta Release

Good news everyone! Gates by Stormforge West is now in public beta on DrivethruRPG! Here’s James to tell you all about it.

For the last five years or so I have been working on this game. It is a cumulation of over 15 years of being immersed into roleplaying games, my ideas, things I love, the stories I dream of, and many hours of playtesting. It has been a struggle of lack of experience, school, work, and other factors. But, now I have the time to give Gates the love it needs. Finally, after far too long, I have decided to release the beta to the public. It is not perfect. The writing is still rough, art is not in its proper place (some of it is just sketches) and the cover and logo are not even final yet. But, it is playable, nearly complete, and immensely fun. And I want to share it with you.

This is very much a community game, and I urge playtesters to join the discord server to discuss your character builds, ideas, worlds, and adventures. With the help of the community, Gates will become a unique and personal experience that we can be proud of. In the multiverse of Gates, anything can and will happen. Your worlds and ideas could be used by others in a way that binds the worlds of Gates into a complex web of fan-made content.

Try out Gates now by clicking on the logo above or just CLICK HERE.

Enforcer out now!

Enforcer, our INQ28 game, is now available in Early Access on DriveThruRPG! Click the banner above to get your hands on it right now!

Enforcer is a miniature based narrative-wargame, or a war-roleplaying-game, in the style of the INQ28 games. It takes the best of wargaming and RPGs to create an experience of the early skirmish era miniature RPGs. Enforcer is as much about player skill as it is about character skill. Your characters and the dice will tell you if they succeed or fail at any given action, but it is about how your use your characters, about how you strategize and use your tactical skill that will determine if you win or lose any scenario.

Enforcer is a physical tabletop game meant for 28mm models. It uses a simple d100 system that keeps the game flowing and the action front and centre. The dice aren’t the be-all and end-all of Enforcer, however, and your strategies in playing the game will determine your success or failure. Each character is a mixture of stats, traits, weapons, armours and items, giving you the flexibility to kit out your character and your team to meet the demands of the mission. Enforcer is a lethal game, so make sure they are kitted out well or they won’t survive for very long. Those that survive will be better off for it, and by the end of a campaign you will have a hardy bunch of soldiers ready to take on anything.

Go get Enforcer right now by CLICKING HERE!

Enforcer is still in Early Access. This means that everything you need to play Enforcer is here, but it is not 100% finished. The main reason for the Early Access is to get funding for the art. Every dollar you spend on Enforcer is a dollar we give to an artist to make Enforcer look better. While the art is being worked on, we’ll keep polishing up the rules and increasing the lore. Everyone who gets Enforcer in the Early Access stage will get the full digital release for free, and we will also give you the final printed version at cost price.

If you want to know more about Enforcer, then come chat with other players and the developers on our Discord server!

Z-LAND is DrivethruRPG’s Deal of the Day

As the title says, today Z-LAND is DriveThruRPG’s Deal of the Day, so if you haven’t gotten your hands on Z-LAND yet, there is no better time for it. Until tomorrow 9am (US Central Time) you can grab Z-LAND for only $6. So click on the banner above, or simply here, to get Z-LAND now before the time runs out.

Z-LAND is where humanity is no longer the top of the food chain, where every day could be your last. Hunger, Thirst, Sleep and Exposure all wear down on you in a battle of attrition with the unstoppable Dead. Find the answer to the question “just how long would I survive” as you and your friends attempt to do just that. What makes Z-LAND unique is we take the survival aspect of survival-horror very seriously. You will see your character weaken as sleep deprivation, hunger & thirst slowly whittle them down. But that is where the choice comes in, will you just take it? Or will you do anything & everything necessary to survive? How much of yourself can you retain in your battle to survive?

New Year, New Runed Age

We hope you all have a very happy new year, and a prosperous 2019 ahead.

Now that Brotherhood is on DriveThruRPG, it’s time to start work on the next project. You voted on what we should work on next, and as you can see by the colourful pie-chart above, you want us to update The Runed Age to the Sigil 1.2 rules.

We’re already hard at work on updating The Runed Age, and making it look clean and pretty for its 1.2 version (and if you join our Discord server, you’ll already see a few sneak peeks), but it’s not just about the looks with this update. When we are finished with it, you will finally be able to get your hands on a Runed Age hardcover version. If you’ve already bought the Runed Age, then when the time comes, we’ll give you a coupon to get the hardcover version at cost price.

And while we start on updating The Runed Age, you can already start having your say about what we should work on afterwards.

Brotherhood is now on sale

The Brotherhood faction mod for the Sigil System is now available for PWYW on DriveThruRPG. Click the banner above or CLICK HERE to get your hands on it!

Brotherhood is all about getting your characters some friends, family and a home to call their own. It’s about making factions, playing in and against them, and working towards something larger than yourself.

Inside the mod you’ll find:

  • A full generator for building your faction’s history alongside its skills and attributes
  • Rules for creating a base for your faction and how to upgrade and expand it during play
  • A system for recruiting prospects that subtly change your faction the more members you get
  • A mission system for sending your faction out on assignments
  • Random events that can destabilise your faction if not managed
  • Sample factions to start your campaign with

Turn yourself into a Sigil character

For the Sigil System as well as the next supplement for Z-LAND, we are working on creating a character generator that will model your character after you (the real life you) in the most faithful way possible. In essence, we want to turn your into a Sigil character.

To build that generator, we need to know one thing: how the 20 Sigil Skills fit together. We need to know which ones go with which, what Skills are contrasted, and if there are groups of Skills that naturally flow together.

That’s where you come in. We made a survey just for you. It has the 20 Sigil Skills in it and you just have to say how good you think you are at each Skill in real life. We’ll then take all the responses, do some fancy data analysis on it, and see what pops out. After all that, we will build the character generator and publish it.

So if you’ve ever wanted to really play as yourself in a tabletop RPG, here is the survey: https://goo.gl/forms/9mdYvxTv7IxzVSiV2

Haunt Silver Seller

We are absolutely stoked to announce that Haunt has reached Silver Seller Rank on DriveThruRPG!

And the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Right as Halloween was coming to a close, Haunt got over the mark to hit the Silver rank. What better time for this amazing horror game to level up.

Coincidence? Maybe. Or maybe the dark forces of the great beyond knew it was the right time.

Whatever the case may be, give Stormforge West a round of applause and check out Haunt at DriveThruRPG!
