New arrivals for Monday April 11th, 2016

Its been a month since our last new arrivals post. No-one tell Gord! He’ll break my legs faster than Paul Newman will beat a recalcitrant corn farmer. Lets not dwell on the potential threat to my mobility and instead look at all the new-pretty we have in the store.

Lands of Porphyra Campaign Setting by Purple Duck Games

Lands of Porphyra, the culmination of years of work by many talented artists and writers, whose vision has come together to create a campaign world of dazzling complexity and awesome potential for your Pathfinder campaigns.

Porphyra is a world that grew up without gods, dominated by the followers of the Elemental Lords who oppressed those who would not bow down…until a brave coalition of elves and orcs performed The Calling, and brought an amazing pantheon of gods and the myriad strange lands they loved, to merge with the young world, and start a world-spanning war!

Now, it is eight centuries since the NewGod Wars, and the 50-odd nations and regions of the Patchwork Planet of Porphyra seethe in uneasy truce, the more than 80 races that call it home dreaming of peace- or war anew…

Dungeon Scroll by Game Salute

Welcome to Dungeon Scroll! Your journey into the Dungeon will be both dangerous and perplexing as only those with the quickest wit and largest vocabulary can survive.

Pretense by AEG

Pretense is a game night social metagame. Players are dealt roles and have the entire night to complete their secret objectives. By the end of the night, the truth will come out.

The goal of Pretense is to obtain the most role cards over the course of the night and to avoid being caught and removed from the game. This is played during the entire game night. There are no rounds, no turns and there is no time limit!

Project Dreamscape by Undine Studios

Project Dreamscape is a game for 1-4 players and takes about 30 minutes. Your turn starts by choosing whether or not to take a facedown card, called a Z card–these Z cards are currency in the game, but also count against you when it comes time to tally up the scores. Z cards are used to purchase cards from the Dreamscape, which are then placed in your REM stack. You must choose one of the two abilities on a card to activate when you collect it, but the real fun of the game comes from chaining these abilities together.

Any one of the eight dream abilities in Project Dreamscape, by itself, produces only a minor effect–take a card, flip a card, rearrange some cards, and so on. But with some clever card play, one dream ability can lead to another until you’ve collected several cards or even cleared the entire Dreamscape. This continues until there are not enough cards to fully refill the Dreamscape after a player’s turn. At that point, the game is over and it’s time to score.

In Keyflower: The Farmers, players develop the agricultural side of their economy by acquiring new farm buildings, growing wheat, and collecting and breeding farm animals (cows, pigs, and sheep). Animals are kept in the fields created by the layout of the roads, adding a new dimension and considerations to the base game. Points can now be scored through the acquisition and breeding of the animals, by harvesting wheat, and from the layout of the fields.

Sangoku by Game Salute

In a mythic oriental universe, great powers battle for control of Three Realms: The Heavens, The Earth and The Hells. Sangoku (meaning “three realms”) is an elegant and thematic card game by Thunderstone designer Mike Elliott. Players recruit warriors: Dogs, Samurais, Oni and Dragons to their armies by playing poker hands to each of the Three Realms. The best hand in each realm wins and a Warrior is summoned from the winning cards… but the weakest cards also summon the most powerful Warriors, with the 2 card in each suite (Fire, Metal, Earth, Water, Wood) summoning a mighty Dragon. With these recruited Warrior Tokens players advance on their opponents to gain ascendancy in the Realms. They can also wager and collect Legend cards, which when combined into sets can be used to powerful effect, including bringing forth uniquely damaging Warriors.

In the card game, players will play as either members of the Corleone crime family, or undercover cops trying to end their reign.

Force and Destiny Specialization Decks by Fantasy Flight Games

Your ability to sense the Force doesn’t just grant you extraordinary abilities beyond those of most sentient beings. It also offers you incredible knowledge about the world around you in the present—and the future. As a Consular or Mystic, you spend your life immersed in that knowledge, but that doesn’t mean you abandon practical concerns. Instead, you use what you know to advise politicians, diplomats, and community leaders, or simply to counsel individuals through difficult times. You may not always wield a lightsaber or occupy the front lines in battle, but you never stop fighting to create a more harmonious galaxy.

Six new Specialization Decks for the Star Wars®: Force and Destiny™ roleplaying system help Consulars and Mystics put their profound wisdom into constructive practice. Featuring full-color thematic art on every card, these decks allow players and Game Masters to quickly and easily reference every talent within the three Consular and three Mystic specializations introduced in the Force and Destiny Core Rulebook. With these cards in hand, you’ll be able to focus on taking the right action in the present to create the best possible future.
