Our first supplement of new material to use at your table is now available in digital. What’s more, we just sent THINGS DON’T GO SMOOTH off to the printer. Want to know more about it? Read on!

Life’s not easy. Don’t matter whether you’re flying a leaky boat along the Rim or dodging Alliance cruisers in the Core, there’s always something or somebody getting in the way of a Crew’s honest day’s work.

THINGS DON’T GO SMOOTH presents a baker’s dozen of shady crews, crime bosses, megalomaniacs, and unexplainable phenomena designed to get in the way of your Crew. Each includes a wealth of story hooks, supporting characters, locations, ships, and background material to help you bring the ‘Verse to your table. GM’s will also find over 50 new Distinctions and Signature Assets, new enemy boats, rules for scene Traits and triggers, plus the Episodes “Merciless” and “Thieves in Heaven” to bring these characters to life! The Firefly RPG corebook is required to use this supplement.

We think you’ll appreciate the following:

  • Find 4 types of Antagonists ranging from crime bosses to the unexplained.
  • Offers advice on how to handle Reavers using Cortex Plus.
  • New rules introduce scene Triggers—giving GMs more dice to roll!
  • Use our fancy Episode Generator. Never get stuck for ideas again!

THINGS DON’T GO SMOOTH is a softcover supplement for the FIREFLY RPG and uses a freewheelin’ version of the award-winning Cortex Plus System. You can pre-order the print edition directly from Margaret Weis Productions or buy it in PDF via DriveThruRPG.com.

Go Read Dread Names Red List Chapter One!

Did you know I was writing again for Vampire the Masquerade? Well, now you do! Matt M McElroy is developing this book, and he recently announced that:

Originally this book was going to be a small stretch goal PDF featuring a bit of an update and some fresh new material regarding the Red List, sort of an homage to the classic Kindred Most Wanted from 1st edition Vampire. It has greatly expanded in scope and depth as to the content and its place in the V20 line since its inception. This first chapter alone eats up almost half of the originally planned word count. SOURCE: Dread Names, Red List Chapter One

Let me give you a teeny tiny hint. Per my usual M.O., there are easter eggs for long-time Vampire fans scattered throughout this chapter. Plus, there will be more. So don’t be afraid to comment!

You can find Dread Names, Red List Chapter One on the Onyx Path website.

[New Release] Echoes of War: Thrillin’ Heroics

Echoes of War Thrillin' Heroics

Howdy Browncoats!

I’m very happy to announce that we will have a new Firefly RPG release coming off press this coming Friday, August 8th, and available for you to order today. Printed copies will be available at Gen Con and then hitting retailers everywhere shortly thereafter. Order from us or your Friendly Local Game Store today and receive the PDF from us for free … TODAY. Just want the PDF? No problem. It’s available now on DriveThruRPG.com. It’s called Echoes of War: Thrillin’ Heroics and I’m here to tell you all about it!

If you’ve been following our Firefly RPG releases, you might be familiar with our Echoes of War line of individual adventures. To date, we’ve released several individual titles in digital beginning with the Wedding Planners Cortex Classic bundle last summer and ending with Bucking the Tiger this past Spring.

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re releasing our first collection of these Episodes. Echoes of War: Thrillin’ Heroics combines a rundown of our Cortex Plus rules, the first four Episodes, and the Serenity Crew into a shiny new tome. For quality assurance purposes, we did take a gander at the rules that were previously provided, and made a few tweaks to our earlier Episodes.

Here’s what you get in Echoes of War: Thrillin’ Heroics:

  • Basic Rules: Get a condensed overview of the Cortex Plus rules—perfect for first-timers who want to give our system a try!
  • Serenity Crew: Background and rules for the main cast, 12 archetypes, and basic rules for your boat.
  • Wedding Planners: Written by Margaret Weis, this Episode first appeared in the GenCon 2013 Exclusive. Transport Liliana Fairchild to a boat called the Rim’s Dream. Easy enough, right?
  • Shooting Fish: Written by Andrew Peregrine, this Episode first appeared in the GenCon 2013 Exclusive. Get your heartstrings tugged when you try to save an orphanage from a lowdown good-for-nothin’ varmint in a boat race.
  • Friends in Low Places: Written by Monica Valentinelli (that’s me!), you’ll be revisiting Serenity Valley, meeting up with good ole Monty, and turn every which way to uncover a terrible plot.
  • Freedom Flyer: Written by Nicole Wakelin, you’ll be flying high…er…low under the radar when you conduct some thrillin’ heroics to help out Maggie Miller, a mechanic who’s down on her luck.
  • Serenity Schematic: We’ve had so many compliments on Ben Mund’s illustration of the Serenity ship, we decided to include it here for new fans, too!

Excited yet? I didn’t tell you the best part. This collection will be the first Echoes of War release we’re offering in print. The books are being shipped to us as we speak and, with a little luck and few Complications, we’ll have copies available for sale at Gen Con 2014, too.

The print edition of Echoes of War: Thrillin’ Heroics is now available for you to purchase direct from us, through your Friendly Local Game Store, or wherever you buy roleplaying games. As always, we’re excited to honor the MWP PDF guarantee. So if you’re itchin’ to get your hands on a full color, softcover copy of this book? You’ll get the PDF for free today by ordering here or from your Friendly Local Game Store and dropping Margaret Weis Productions a line.

If that ain’t shiny, then I don’t know what is. S-s-s-s-s-surprise! And thanks for being awesome. See you at GenCon!
