Atlas Games has posted the Table of Contents preview for their upcoming Ars Magica supplement Transforming Mythic Europe [view our entry in the Roleplayers Chronicle Reference database here]. “This book describes the magic and activities necessary to transform Mythic Europe, whether by creating an island for magi to rule, integrating the Order of Hermes into wider society, or starting a technological revolution. None of the magic is particularly hard, nor does it rely on hidden secrets. Magi have not changed Europe because they have not yet chosen to. Your magi may choose differently.” View the preview here.
Cubicle 7 Entertainment has released their latest modern action horror sourcebook for The Laundry RPG for Basic Roleplaying – Cultists Under the Bed [view our entry in the Roleplayers Chronicle Reference database here]. “Our reality is ruled by monstrous gods, invisible horrors that hunger to consume us. Some deluded bastards worship these gods, trading obeisance for power or magic or the privilege of getting eaten last when the world ends. Cults are like cockroaches, breeding in the shadows, gnawing at the walls of society, fearful of the light… and bloody hard to kill.” Written by Andy Klosky, WJ MacGuffin, Paul L Mathews, Brian Nisbet, Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan, and John Snead, it’s available for purchase from DriveThruRPG: Cultists Under the Bed – CB71206.
AEther & Savage Worlds
The final Camp Wicakini adventure from Silver Gryphon Games [visit their website here] is now available for both AEther and Savage Worlds. “You weren’t expecting the head of the Kinzey Foundation to contact you for a job. Everyone knows they are into some heavy stuff, that the Foundation building parks is just their public face. After the meeting, you’re just as confused as you were before. It just doesn’t make any sense. You’re supposed to go up to some summer camp and kidnap some Native guy, but you’ve got some really nasty equipment that you’re taking with you; some sort of freeze gun and some suspicious device that is supposed to keep animals at bay.” Written by Kevin Rohan, both are available from DriveThruRPG:

Fantasy Flight Games has posted a designer’s diary and preview of their upcoming supplement for Only War – No Surrender. “No Surrender, the newest adventure supplement for Only War, is quickly approaching, bringing to light all the adventure and terror contained within the Lycurgos, a Ramilles-class star fort. This star fort is under the dominion of the Severan Dominate, a sect of traitors to the Imperium, and in this three-part adventure, you and your fellow Guardsmen must break the traitors’ back and claim Lycurgos for the glory of the Emperor. During your mission, you’ll encounter foes old and new. Nothing is as it seems onboard Lycurgos and before you can establish the Emperor’s dominion, you will need to uncover the secret lurking within the star fort. To introduce some of his own contributions to the adventure of No Surrender, here’s contributing writer, Tim Cox.” View the designer’s diary and download the preview here.
