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!

New Release: Bucking the Tiger

Bucking the Tiger

Out in the black, a friend who pays back what they owe is as rare as a fresh strawberry. The Crew arrives on Renao just in time to witness the life drain out of Annie Foy’s body before she could settle up her debt. Sheriff Leonard Cao suspects the murderer is taking part in a high-stakes game of cards at the Shenandoah Rush casino and needs the Crew’s help to crack the case. Was it Sharklip Shen, the Triad gangster who controls the casino? Was Big Cassie Sagira, the Companion with a secret, responsible? Butch Guying, a known killer and Browncoat raider? Or perhaps Annie ran afoul of the mysterious Alliance officer known only as The Colonel?

New today, Bucking the Tiger is a brand new Echoes of War Episode for your gaming table. I developed this adventure, and Rob Wieland wrote it. Shiny!

New Release: Mortal Remains for Hunter the Vigil

Mortal Remains Cover

As the Prey Evolves…

Everywhere you turn, a vampire eats some poor factory worker. Werewolves shred cars. Witches curse the innocent. Serial killers devastate communities.

But what about the stranger aspects of the World of Darkness?

Mortal Remains picks up where we left off with Night Stalkers, Spirit Slayers, Witch Finders, and Slashers. In Mortal Remains, we explore the Vigil as it pertains to mummies, changelings, prometheans, demons, and sin-eaters.

So Too Must the Hunter…

Inside Mortal Remains, you’ll find:

  • Fiction and ideas for bringing these strange monsters into your Hunter: The Vigil chronicle.
  • New Dread Powers to represent their fearsome arsenals.
  • New Compacts and Conspiracies.
  • Conversions to adapt Hunter: The Vigil’s rules to be compliant with The God-Machine Chronicle’s rules updates.

Mortal Remains is available in digital at DriveThruRPG.com. The print edition will be released soon! I got the chance to edit this supplement and write/design the interstitial fiction for it. WOO!
