Summer is almost Here

Summer is almost here so that means more time to work on games.

 

Here is a short list of what is planed for work this summer.

 

Working on the next 12 issues for Arcana Journal for release in 1017. Yep, we work that far ahead. We are also going to give each issue and realm book a real good proofing and correct some errors and stuff.

 

More Heroes Weekly on the way with vol 6 all done and ready to go. We also have some new character books coming out and a new power system to apply to your games.

 

Avalon Characters. A new Pathfinder series which will detail out five NPCs that you can use in your game. Each issue will cover a different class or race. Lots of fun in these little gems.

 

I will also be working on some new stuff for Counter Wars, a super hero version of the system, as well as a Robot / Droid battles and maybe something for the Fringe.

 

Speaking of the Fringe, some time back in the forums I had spoken about maybe working up a series of linked scenarios using the Fringe as the back drop, but using different games for our collections. Well I have the bare bones of it all layed out, and it’s a gem. The series will require that you have Nova Blast Star fighter, Zero-O and Future Wars, and if you like you can do some Role Playing using IF 2.0. Don’t worry thought, we will offer up the whole thing in a bundle for a great price if you don’t have all of these games. Should be a blast.

 

I want to work on some more Gadget Girl stories if I have the time, as well as don so more work on a Tarot deck for use in Arcana. We will see though.

 

Well as you can see, a full load of work to do, as well as hang out with friends and the kid, drink some beer and go see some good movies.

 

 

Comic Book Fun Is On The Way

Yep, it is almost here, Comic Book Adventures is getting ready to be released.  This June we are setting up four previews of the solo system for running a super hero game using Pathfinder and our own Heroes Wear Masks.  July will see the release of the core game and the first mission book.  So get ready, its going to be a hot, super summer.

New Stuff For April

There’s a lot of stuff coming out this month, which makes me happy. You know what else makes me happy? Reality TV shows involving ingredients to be cooked. Not every meal needs to be created in a tavern, so make sure to use food vendors and other “fast food” concepts in a variety of settings.

How to Spice Up Your Game

AVG2800-21

23 Pages $5.99

Writer: Tim Höregott

When you play games often, and especially when you play many different games, you may notice that over time the playing routine starts to get really similar and linear with each session. Player behavior, as well as your own behavior as a game master, can easily become all too uniform if you do not vary the game experience enough. This book covers suggestions for many different techniques that, though sometimes unconventional, might help spice up your game. They introduce new mechanics to your gameplay that can help catch your players’ attention better or help you all focus more on the experience of having a great time together and telling a good story rather than playing the game in strict routine.

The techniques in this book can be applied to almost any type of Role-Playing Game and can at any point be introduced or completely abandoned if you do not find them fitting your style of play. Most of these measures go unexplored by Game Masters, but can really help give your adventure that special touch that converts a good game into a perfect game. Some of them are troubleshooters for certain scenarios, others explore Meta-game areas that are untouched during regular play sessions, and some just help adding a different flavor to your story.

September’s Forthcomings!

Holy cow, what an awesome summer it’s been. I was wandering the countryside for a month, heading out to the Pennsic War for some medieval reenactment and GenCon to promo for one of my other companies. But now I’m back home and ready to start the long six month writing season.

Enough about me, though. While I’ve been carousing, Avalon Games has been hard at work putting out new products, and just in time for school to start. Get ready for a super September, starting with a three-day dollar sale on One Book’s site for Labor Day weekend.  From September 1 through 3, stock up on amazing products from Avalon Game Company.

Doctor Clockworks. Avalon Mini-Game #135

AVG1500-135

20 Plus Pages

$5.99

Writer: Steve Lopez

It is the year 1875, and the world’s great powers are playing “the game of nations.” They are expanding their colonial empires by means both fair and foul. Weblike networks of spies, soldiers, and operatives span the world, doing the bidding of their respective crowns.

A few clandestine groups, however, serve no crown nor any authority higher than themselves. Such an organization is the Clockwork Legion, a shadowy viper’s nest of anarchists and evildoers dedicated to toppling governments and sowing discord across the globe.

But there can be no shadow without light; while some secret cabals are dedicated to spreading terror, others work to uphold the common good. The Explorer Society is one of the latter, a confederation of scientists and adventurers pledged to stamp out evil and preserve the rule of law.

On the Continent, the Clockwork Legion, led by the sinister Baron von Sturm, has enlisted the aid of the brilliant, half-mad British scientist Dr. Phineas Cloughton (a.k.a. “Dr. Clockwork”) to create not only an army of clockwork automatons, but also a doomsday weapon of terrifying power: the Kinetic Nullifier, capable of stopping all physical motion down to the atomic level. If mounted on a seagoing vessel, the cannon-like Nullifier would be able to neutralize an entire opposing navy by turning their ship’s metal hulls to ice, which would then shatter as a result of their own weight. Von Sturm and the beautiful Eva Richter plan to turn the weapon against the most powerful navy on earth—that of Her Royal Highness, Queen Victoria of England.

In London, Sir James Wyngate, head of the Explorer Society, learns of the Clockwork Legion’s insidious plan. Wyngate enlists the aid of Britain’s Captain Etheridge, American operative Zebulon Manning, and others in a mission to thwart von Sturm’s plans and preserve the British Empire.

This is the story of their struggle, with the ultimate fates of Great Britain and the United States of America hanging in the balance….

A great new edition to the S&G line, this is a wonderful steampunk version of the system.

Arcana Journal #41

AVG2300-12-41

46 Pages

$2.99

The true wonders of Arcana are explored in the monthly journals. Each issue focuses on a hex within the game world, offering rumors, hidden lore, and detailed descriptions of all the important sites and people of that area. Full color maps (also offered in print-easy black and white) are provided on the hex itself, plus all sites of worthwhile note, such as towns and major adventure sites. Floor plans of castles and other location are also offered.

In addition to this detailed write-up of the hex, each issue will also focus on other aspects of the game world, such as its history, important people, the Magi and gaming classes. When you add it all up, these journals take the mundane and make it magical. It is through the journals that the Arcana game world will grow, expand, and become a living place of adventure.

This issue of the Journal will cover the following aspects of the game world.

Hex 45

Morlands and the Lake of Stars

Alchemy

It was a great summer, and I’m looking forward to a calmer, cooler fall.
