Routinely Itemised is an RPG news summary column, and this week we look at TSR Games (3) threatening OSR communities, new RPGs hitting digital and physical shelves, RPG reviews and discoveries.
Blood Sword is a 5e campaign setting that's funded on Kickstarter and will close in days. Blood Sword was also a grimdark choose-your-own-adventure gamebook from the 80s, and that's what the 5e setting is based on.
The Blood Sword 5e Handbook will contain approximately 250 richly illustrated and colored pages with maps, characters, opponents, monsters and other evocative images of Legend, a land of adventurers threatened by unspeakable horrors.
It feels like a spicy week, with plenty of news and a noticeable uptick in Kickstarter activity. Oh, and the powerhouse Marvel returning to roleplaying games.
Blood Sword is the sword of life, the only weapon capable of opposing the power of the evil Wizards of Krarth who threaten the Lands of Legend.
