Here’s a look at today’s new, third party, and diversion releases.
- Minotaur Games [visit their website here] has released their latest Rule Zero supplement for Pathfinder, looking at Gem Magic. “Gemstones are more than just valuable treasure. Used to cast powerful spells or create mighty magic items, these precious stones are worth far more than a pile of gold. With Rule Zero: Gem Magic, gemstones can become an integral part of any adventurer’s arsenal. Once attached to an existing magic item, these jewels grant new abilities and powerful spells allowing heroes to get more out of their magic items.” Written by Jason Bulmahn, it’s available for purchase from DriveThruRPG: Rule Zero: Gem Magic.
- Paizo Publishing is getting ready to release Bestiary 4 for Pathfinder this month [view our entry in the Roleplayers Chronicle Reference database here], with the continuation of their previews, this time taking a look at the tooth fairy. “Any day now, Bestiary 4 will be arriving at game tables, ready to unleash a terrifying horde of beasts, demons, psychopomps, dragons, and mythic foes. Last week, we took a look at one of the cutest, cuddliest monsters in the book, the pipefox. But all that sweetness can lead to an upset stomach and tooth decay. Fortunately, the tooth fairy is here to help you with that, by forcefully yanking out your teeth! These obnoxious fey are sure to keep you up at night. Just don’t expect them to leave a gold piece under your pillow when they’re done with their grisly work.” View the preview here.

- Occult Moon [visit their website here] has released their latest Toys for the Sandbox universal fantasy supplement – The Unmarked Grave. “She’s a ghost, but she still looks for her lost love. If the Dark Lady sees you, she’ll make you help, maybe even send you to search the other side for her. So be warned, if you see the Dark Lady, it’s curtains for you. She’s even got her own cemetery. But, you’re brave, you say? You can handle this? Then help Jainis, an out-of-his-depth ghost buster and free the Dark Lady from her own murderous grief. There’s a Bu’Idu Ikul you can probably use. Vivian’s seen the Dark Lady and her clock is ticking. Maybe you can even save her with that ghost-eating blade. And, watch your own back – October is bringing out storms of ghosts. Even if you get this job done right, you just might have to banish a few resurrected foes of your own that got revived in the process.” Written by Quinn Conklin, it’s available for purchase from DriveThruRPG: Toys for the Sandbox 93: The Unmarked Grave.
