A summary of RPGs news from the week Cynthia Williams becomes the boss of D&D and Wizards of the Coast, Zine Month launches, and the One Ring RPG gets a release date.

RPG news in the week that Chaosium’s Steve Perrin passed away and Geek Native moved HQ.
Sarah Newton’s Mindjammer RPG is one of the most popular transhuman games out there. That’s a sci-fi set so far into the future the concept of ‘human’ has changed (and that’s a description so simplified it’s almost criminal). What’s post-historic then?
