Idle Red Hands 047: FFG Saves RPGs, Plaid Hat Games Reacquired, Free RPG Day 2020, Tales From the Loop Starter Set and Warcaster: Neo-Mechanika

Fantasy Flight Games is moving the production of their RPGs to Edge Entertainment. Plaid Hat Games founder, Colby Dauch, is reacquiring the company from Fantasy Flight Games. They will lose Dead of Winter, Mice and Mystics and Stuffed Fables in the deal. Free RPG Day 2020 will be on June 13th. It is now run by Gaming Days LLC and offers plenty of alternatives to the World’s Greatest Roleplaying Game. To celebrate the release of their Amazon series based on their RPG “Tales From the Loop” Free League Publishing will be release a boxed starter set for the game which included pre-generated characters, a rulebook, an original adventure, map, and 10 custom dice. Warcaster: Neo Machanika by Privateer Press finished a successful Kickstarter campaign. This is their first new wargame IP produced for Kickstarter. It raises a few questions about their motives.

Monolith Games cancels the Kickstarter campaign for their new concept, Beyond the Monolith. CMON is working on a new interactive hybrid of technology and physical boardgames called Teburu. Riot Games launches Riot Tabletop, hoping to create a real-life toxic tabletop fanbase modeled on their League of Legends success and paid for with Chinese money. Games Workshop puts Space Marines Adventures in Target stores and Barnes and Noble makes exclusive expansions for it. Fantasy flight shutters their Interactive division. The TTRPG department is also laid off. We still don’t know what this means for their RPG systems and settings.
