Take a Break in June to try New Products

Ancestral gaming is something that’s fascinating. It’s when your character dies and your descendant takes over your quest, allowing for multi-generational campaigns that span hundreds of years. The descendant gets some of your dead character’s fame and fortune to start and is not as inexperienced as a beginning character. Try it; it’s fun. Here are this month’s releases. *** Arcana Journal...

[Avalon Games] We Got Eggs-actly What You’re Looking for This April!

I got eggs on the brain. Eggs can be really useful in a gaming adventure, as well. Have you ever seen caterpillar or insect eggs? They’d be hard to identify in a, say, overly large species of centipede found in a cave or space installation. What if they’re a delicacy on a certain planet, causing the entire colony’s population to become victim to angry insectoid parents? Or that priceless bejeweled...

Avalon Games has Gone Mad Here with New Products in March

Insanity is a tricky subject; you don’t want to undermine someone’s very real personal experiences with mental illness. On the other hand, insanity is a common trope used to explain villains’ behavior, or even the behavior of some good guy gone wrong. I mean, not every king that does some incredibly stupid stuff can blame their actions on being ensorcelled. So, what is one to do? Well, for...

Avalon Games – First Look at February’s Products!

Sometimes the characters owe money; it’s how we get them into half of the scenarios we put them through. Most jobs the characters take on seem to focus on some sort of killing, kidnapping, or transporting. However, most jobs that people would rather see done almost always involve hard labor—so don’t forget to have your characters work off a debt by tilling a field, cleaning up a big mess, or...

Avalon Games – New Year, New Products, Same Dedication

Bring money into the house at midnight; leave food at a crossroads; anything you do the first minute of the New Year will be sure to repeat for the rest of 2017.Such little traditions can be found anywhere, and can offer local color to any campaign. Likewise, a campaign can take a simple superstition and build a plotline around it. So spit in your hat, walk around it three times, and make a wish… Or...

Avalon Games Parties like it’s 2017 in December!

It’s that time again, the time where we all sit back and think about how thankful we are. Thankful for customers and our legions of game writers, editors, and artists. Thankful for our families who let us do this and our daily existences at “normal” jobs that get us through the dry periods. Some of us are thankful we can still create—that we haven’t lost our senses or our capabilities despite...

Avalon Games is Flying High for November!

Having worked for a company that dealt almost exclusively with mountaineering books, I can safely tell you that there are a lot of issues with climbing a mountain. Aside from exposure to cold, dryness, and blistering sun, there’s also a definitive risk of altitude sickness, which is a reaction to changes in the oxygen percentage of the air. In addition, everyone responds differently to these issues....

[Avalon Games] September’s Here and We’ve got Great New Stuff!

How far will you go for your players? Sometimes we go too far: spending upward of 20 hours creating an authentic-looking map for the characters to “find”; developing an entire 6-hour music track just to get them “in the mood”. It’s all good and they do appreciate you! One of my favorite items to design for my players is cyphers, whether I’m using a traditional Roman scytale, creating an...

Check out the Hottest Products from Avalon Games this August!

I am off on my yearly pilgrimage to the Pennsic War, indeed, in one of the biggest heatwaves of the year. When operating your campaign, don’t forget that your party is often made up of characters out of their native element; in other words, likely not used to the climate in which they are currently traveling. All it takes is a few degrees—a cold snap or a heat wave—to physically and mentally...

[Avalon Games] Prepare for Battle with New Products in June!

Battle Maneuvers. I’ve been in a medieval reenactment society that does heavy weapons combat and I have to say that everyone has their favorite melee and tournament maneuvers.    So should the GM, whether it’s in hand-to-hand or ship-to-ship. Come up with about a half-dozen flying maneuvers or strikes for each of your major NPCs and keep them on file. Come up with another half-dozen counters...

[Avalon Games] May is the Month to Enjoy new Products!

May Day! Dance among the tulips! Roll in the buttercups! Roll for damage! Well, you never know when an allergy will show up. Besides, buttercups were once used by clever beggars who wanted to add more sores on themselves—they cause pustules and blisters. They would do it to themselves or, more often, to the children they were exploiting. In any event, springtime is when the sap is rising, trees are...

Avalon Games’ Releases for April

I was thinking about tricky places I’ve visited. One of the most awesome had a semi-extra floor on the second floor. It was a candy-packaging factory and the second floor was mostly storage but they put the breakroom there on a platform of sorts with a small set of stairs to enter. The other side opened directly into the full building-height staircase. In other words, the building’s staircase...
