Right now on Kickstarter is a campaign by Studio Agate, the producers of my favorite grimdark RPG Shadows of Esteren, is a new D&D 5e setting called Fateforge. To say that the 5e marked is overcrowded is an understatement, but the folks at Studio Agate have produced some great games and settings. What will they do with this system? Let’s find out together.

Crossovers in Star Trek Adventures

One thing that I’ve really enjoyed creating for Star Trek Adventures is writing options for non-Starfleet campaigns. It’s a big ask, though, to start a brand new campaign just to try playing Klingons, Cardassians, or Romulans. There’s another option, though: a crossover!

Fast, Furious, and Fairytales: Part 1

Arkadia Review

Greco-Roman mythology is a rich vein and this setting promised a setting built from the ground up with this theme in mind instead of tacked on the top of D&D 5e. Now that the PDF is available I thought I’d give you all a look at what’s included!
