This week D&D hired a new senior game designer, an army of monsters appeared on Humble Bundle, publishers backed New Gamemaster Month and a load more. It's time for a Routinely Itemised collection of RPG news.
Routinely Itemised takes a look back at the RPG news with the Origins Award restructuring after an RPG boom, D&D Beyond's top 10 sellers and plenty of new game announcements.
Monte Cook's Cypher System is growing again with a new "multi-fantasy" setting called Godforsaken.
The fantasy world of the Diamond Throne is ruled by giants, rich with ritual and magic crystals and with the tyranny of the draconic dramojh, the former overlords, not entirely lost to the past.
RPGs tend to grow by word of mouth. Perhaps Monte Cook needs some early Invisible Sun adopters on board to get those recommendations flowing.
There's a free preview on Beneath the Monolith already available on DriveThruRPG. Monte Cook's site has a pre-order page for the hardback, which is expected in July, and will cost $45.
Ptolus is a campaign setting full of mysteries, betrayal and the supernatural.
A weekly catch-up of RPG news. Follow the events of the D&D leak, the future of Fantasy Flight Games' RPGs and just how much money Games Workshop is making.
Ptolus: City by the Spire was a massive 672-page, premium and expensive book from D&D 3.0 designer Monte Cook.
There are nearly 50,000 titles in the discount list and at the time of writing Shadowrun, Changeling: the Lost (second edition) and Fate Space Toolkit Prototype Edition, Wrath and Glory and Warhammer Fantasy 4e are in the top five positions.
