Idle Red Hands Weekly 039: Best of 2019 Part 2 – Call of Cthulhu, Battletech, Starter Sets, Ragnarok, Star Wars and Solo TTRPGs

Part two of our look back at 2019 and some looking ahead at 2020. This time with Lyal. We talk about Call of Cthulhu Starter Set, solo adventures and our upcoming series reviewing starter boxes for TTPRG systems new and old. The Ragnarok miniatures skirmish game gives us a use for all of those Blood Rage Vikings and monsters. Getting your kids into Star Wars and if the property is still kid-friendly as well as the future of the franchise resting on The Mandalorian. Delivery of Battletech, Trudvang Chronicles and Siege of the Citadel Kickstarters in 2020 (hopefully). Our missed chance to play War Room by Larry Harris over the holidays. #callofcthulhu #chaosium #battletech #ragnarok

Idle Red Hands Weekly 029: Homeworld TTRPG by Modiphius, Grim Dynasty for Village Attacks, Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes by Flying Buffaloe, Solo Adventures and Character Backstories

Lyal subs in for the now toothless Chris. Okinawa Comic-con happened. Modiphius is working on the Homeworld Revelations RPG based on the classic PC RTS game. Grimlord Games has a Kickstarter for Grim Dynasty, a Chinese-themed expansion for their Village Attacks boardgame. The new edition of Mercenaries, Spies and Private Eyes by Flying Buffaloe arrived and Lyal talks about solo adventures and the use of backstory for TTRPGs. We look to Good Bad Flicks on YouTube for RPG inspiration.

Idle Red Hands Weekly 028: Reclaimer RPG, Warhammer and Marvel, Swordsfall and Okinawa Comic-con

Feast of Legend appeared in physical form at the New York Comic-con. Critical Role gives the money away from their sponsored livestream to a farmer charity. No apology. Feeling guilty? Reclaimer RPG by Chad Walker Kickstarter apologizes for pitting their creative departments against eachother in their pledge levels. Swordsfall by Brandon Dixon moves to IndieGoGo to support new artwork with Art Booster 1. Games Workshop will make Warhammer comics with Marvel. Okinawa Comic-con dodges the biggest typhoon of the season. Tokyo was not so lucky. #reclaimer #reclaimerrpg #swordsfall

Idle Red Hands Weekly 024: Consent in Gaming, The Lost Mines of Phandelver, Virtue Signaling for Fun and Profit and Trophy RPG

The first session of D&D 5E playing the Lost Mines of Phandelver and the excellent utility of the 5E Essentials rulebook. Consent in Gaming by Monty Cooke Games (which is FREE but requires you create an account) and suspicions of their motives as well as the actual good a document like this can do. Bitter Reach is the expansion for the Forbidden Lands RPG by Free League (not Bitterlands as was mysteriously reported previously) along with a reprint of the core set. Alien is not Star Trek and other GMing mistakes in the comments.
