WFRP: Graeme Davis is back with WFRP

Just a short note to … erm … note that the author for the upcoming WFRP adventure The Edge of Night is none other than Graeme Davis!

It will be very interesting to see what he will make out of the current WFRP rules and setting, and I have high hopes that it will harken back to the early WFRP pieces penned by the esteemed mr Davis.

FAL News: Deathwatch RPG announced

In a surprise move FFG yesterday announced the Deathwatch RPG, the third installment of the WH40kRP line.

The reason I am surprised is that the timing seems odd. I was expecting it a bit later, after Rogue Trade picked up steam and got a few more supplements added to the lineup. But maybe this was needed after those pictures from GW revealed a bit more than they should last week.

Still, I think it is tremendously exciting, and I’m hoping that I can find some energy to run a Dark Heresy/Rogue Trader/Deathwatch crossover some time next summer. Given I get some interest from my players for such a setup of course.


FAL News: One Ring to Rule them All

Today Cubicle 7 and Sophisticated Games announced that they have picked up the license for an RPG set in Middle-Earth. So we will have yet another version of this epic fantasy license, with lots of market speak in the press release.

Read the press release here!

It looks like it’ll use a new system, but apart from that there’s not much to be gleaned from the press release. Apart from the name, which is The One Ring: The Lord of the Rings® Role-playing Game, complete with an awkward ® screwing things up.

Still, I’m looking forward learning more about the game, and the inevitable discussions about whether a LOTR RPG will have the power to wrest customers from the almighty juggernaut that is D&D:

One Game to rule them all
One Game to find them
One Game to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them
In the land of Renton where the shadows lie.

Nah, kidding. I play D&D4e, and it’s great fun. I hope The One Ring: The Lord of the Rings® Role-playing Game can be great fun as well.
