OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD!!!

For the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to enjoy James S. A.  Corey’s (aka Ty Frank and Daniel Abraham) epic science fiction series The Expanse in both print and TV formats. Earlier this year, I had heard that Green Ronin Publishing was going to create a RPG set in this action-packed universe, and they were going to run a Kickstarter for it sometime this year. Well, according to a recent post on Twitter, it looks like “sometime”is going to be this upcoming Monday!

From what Green Ronin has promised, the game will use a modified version of their AGE engine modified for the action-packed, hard sci-fi of The Expanse. So pump up the Juice, and fire up your Epstein Drives, beltalowdas.  Whatever you do, though, DON’T touch any brown goo.

Lovecraft E-Zine Interviews Joe Salvador

Last year I had the opportunity to help playtest Joe Salvador's Eldritch Tales, an upcoming White Box take on Lovecraftian horror role-playing published by Raven God Games. I can't really say much beyond that Joe has put a lot of work into this game and it promises to be hit in and out of the OSR community! Today, Acep Hale with The Lovecraft ezine, a blog dedicated to all things squamous and cyclopean, published an in-depth interview with Salvador about ET, it's inspirations, and what the future holds for his awesome new game.

Could a certain Lovecraftian Sword & Sorcery campaign setting originally intended for Sword & Wizardy find a landing pad for this game? Only the Great Old Ones know.
