Idle Red Hands Weekly 059: Orion Black Quits, Open Letter to GW, D&D Legacy Disclaimer, Critical Role Controversy and Quest Adventure Game

Orion Black quits their position at Wizards of the Coast and releases a long statement explaining why. An open letter to Games Workshop is posted as a response to their “Warhammer is for everyone” inclusivity statement and especially the ending ” You will not be missed.” Critical Role responds to a claim fo unpaid employment. Dungeons and Dragons now prints a legacy disclaimer on all of their digital publications prior to 2014. Quest, an adventure game, not an RPG, by The Adventure Guild has been released with ambitions to also create a publishing platform. Will the tabletop hobby see its own “Epic Gamestore” muscle in on DriveThruRPG?

The Complete Mutant Chronicles Part Three – The First Corporate Wars

Greed, violence, war…
Thus has it always been,
Thus shall it always be…
Corporation against Corporation,
Humanity against the Dark Powers…
The Dark Legion, the Brotherhood…
Our technology turned against us…
War without end…
Amen.

In Part Three: The First Corporate Wars, the release of the Dark Symmetry has crippled the Inner Worlds by infecting “thinking machines”. Humanity is pushed to the brink of collapse by the loss of technology and the paranoia and violence that grows in its absence. Alternative technology is discovered allowing for space travel and secrets that were once thought buried surface with deadly results.

The Complete Mutant Chronicles is a new lore series covering the dark history of humanity. Starting with the death of Old Earth and the rise of the Megacorporations, the first Corporate Wars and the unleashing of the Dark Powers, then through the Dark Symmetry, Dark Legion, and finally the Dark Eden eras. If you are a long time fan of the Mutant Chronicles or just know it from the Warzone miniatures game, this gives you the complete story of our conquered solar system that will bring back old memories or inspire you to make new ones.

Cast members from the HBO A Game of Thrones series play Dungeons and Dragons for charity. The new boxed set for 9th edition Warhammer 40k, Indomitus, revealed. It is not a starter set but does include the new 9E core rulebook. Wizards of the Coast bans Magic the Gathering cards and not for gameplay or balance reasons. Legends of Vox Machina Series delayed due to pandemic and localization reasons with no new release date announced. Kentucky Fried Chicken announces the “release” of their KFConsole, opportunistically timed to take advantage of the Sony Playstation 5 and new Microsoft Xbox announcements.

Episode 227: How To Play Star Wars

If you played Star Wars as a kid on the playground or with the almost endless number of Kenner toys, you probably wanted to try it on the tabletop as a role-playing game. What is the best way to do it? What system would you use? Of the licensed game out there from West End Games or Fantasy Flight Games and also the fan homebrews, which system would you choose? Are there better systems that have never been adapted? We try to cover the topic including what makes a game feel like Star Wars and how you explore the universe without the rules getting in the way. This discussion could equally apply to all games based on popular intellectual properties and how to make a successful translation to the tabletop. Session zero and understanding player expectations as well as what are the limitations of the setting are also covered.

So sharpen those lightsabers and swaddle those HVTs as we dive deep into playing Star Wars as a roleplaying game from three different perspectives.
