And, it’s got 30 levels across three caverns that come after the core game, plus some corrected items to replace misprints in the original.

Check out my Relics of Rajavihara playlist for an idea of how cool the core games is, and now it’s even better!

Um, well, at least, as soon as I *cough* finish all the puzzles in the core set.

Dawn of the Archmage

Crowdfunding for Dawn of the Archmage by Dave Killingsworth and SolarFlare Games has started. They created Nightmare Forest: Dead Run and stand-alone sequel Nightmare Forest: Alien Invasion, among others, you may have heard me mention.

Summon Your Power!

Dawn of the Archmage is small unit (miniatures) skirmish game for 2 to 4 players. Each mage will represent a school of magic, summoning powerful monsters to the battlefield. Pitting their fearsome creatures in gladiatorial battle, one mage will reign victorious, ascending to the title of Archmage.

Do you have the strength and strategy to defeat your enemies? Will you become the Archmage?

John Carter tabletop gaming

Modiphius, who recently have launched Star Trek Adventures, sent out an email with details about their upcoming crowdfunding effort for a John Carter tabletop gaming line. This will include an RPG, miniatures, and a board game. They’ve been working with the Edgar Rice Burroughs Estate and they seem to be serious about trying to do it right.

In the email, which you should go read now, they shared some pictures of suggested page layouts and miniatures, and there’s some gorgeous stuff happening, so I’d say sign up and stay in the loop for when the crowdfunding campaign starts up, they say in just a month or two!

The roleplaying game will be a gorgeous deluxe edition landscape book with stunning long artworks taking you across Barsoom whilst the miniatures will bring your favourite characters, villains and brave crews of their ships to life. Beyond that a board game will let you explore the adventures of John Carter and friends in new ways!

We’re making a final push now before aiming to get the project live at the end of August but our goal is to be able to ship the book and miniatures soon after the project so this date will shift to ensure we’re fully ready. Please bear with us, it’s going to be worth your wait.

I wonder if there’s going to be the equivalent of the Borg Cube Collector’s Edition for STA, which is awesomely out of my price range? Maybe a Martian airship? Also, this will use the same 2d20 system, so I’ll hope to hear about some riotous crossovers.
