Coming soon to the website will be the very first open play-test of our new roleplaying system. It will not be the final version, as any and all notes garnered during the play-test will be considered during the next phase. We will post a link as soon as it is available. Once the game is out of play-testing, expect it to be available on Drive Thru RPG and several other websites, as well as this one. So keep an watch this space for more information.
"A new Roleplaying Game set in Bryan Donihue's World of Incursion. No classes. No levels. No limits."
While we were broadcasting live from InConJunction 39, we ran across a small game that was actually launching at the convention. Based in writer Bryan Donihue's fictional setting that his books are based in, the game is an interesting look at a d20 mechanic that seems fairly simple to play. During the demo, we navigated the world pretty easy. On the GM side of things however, that is where you need to get out of your own way. We found that it took some time to get rid of habits that we found ourselves with from decades of running games on other systems. The initiative system is good, and can allow you several actions in a round, but keeping track requires a little work on the GMs side. You only use one d20, and roll a limited number of times during the game.

After discussions with Paradox, Modiphius has agreed to oversee all publishing and licensing for V5 tabletop roleplaying games.
Modiphius will be responsible for guiding the plot development running throughout V5 tabletop roleplaying products and ensuring each product is fully approved by both the White Wolf brand team within Paradox, and also with Modiphius own team of V5 experts.
Modiphius is committed to delivering a truly exceptional range for V5 that maintains the high standard of editing, production, and development seen in their other lines. Working with existing White Wolf partners Onyx Path Publishing, Elderwood Academy, Dogmight Games, Nosolorol, Arkhane Asylum, Need for Games, Studio 101, By Night Studios, and many more to be announced soon, the team will continue to expand on the diverse product range as well as available languages.

As August 2nd nears, we are looking forward to getting our grubby little hands on the Pathfinder 2.0 playtest. In case you haven't heard, or have been living under a rock... They are coming out with a new version. Hence the name Pathfinder 2.0. You can listen to us talk about it, or you can listen to the guys that are responsible for bringing this into our lives. Like I said before, we are looking forward to seeing the new edition and participating in the playtest. So without anymore adu, here are the guys that know more than we do.
Small update on the GPR live show at GenCon 2018. We will be talking to a representative from White Wolf about their newest edition of Vampire the Masquerade. V5 is quickly becoming a favorite as we worked through the playtest bundles provided by White Wolf on their WorldofDarkness.com domain, and we hope to get our hands on the full copy to see all the changes and updates to the setting. Join us Saturday night at 7pm in the Lucas Oil meeting room 1. Also joining us will be Bret Robinson, creator of the Submerged: Echo 51 card game, talking about his game and the film that inspired it.
