Nibiru: A Science Fiction Game of Lost Memories – Readthrough Review and Core Book Flip Through

Check out the last few days of the new Nibiru Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/xanadunibiru/xanadu-a-nibiru-roleplaying-game-expansion

Nibiru is a science fiction tabletop role playing game set in an ominous space station. It’s focused around the themes of memory, nature and artificiality, and features a rich world (inspired by Ancient Mesopotamia) as well as a quick-to-learn system that builds each player’s persona based on the retelling of their pasts. Nibiru is a space station submerged in the ocean of debris orbiting the Star of Fomalhaut. A monstrous, steel-clad vulture feeding off of a collection of unborn planets, Nibiru’s purpose is unknown—at least, for those that reside in it. Near the Core of this skyless world, a group of enclosed city-states harbors the majority of the human population. The characters portrayed by the players are different from the rest of the peoples of Nibiru. They come from strange places called Habitats, each functioning as an archetype that changes not just the backdrop of your memories, but the mechanics of how you recall them. From Dreamlanders—people that only seem to remember the lives of other individuals—to Vagabonds of the Machine—who share the memories prompted by a sentience-inducing computer virus—each of the five habitats holds mysteries of their own, as well as unique mechanics that make them all the more exciting to play. #nibiru #ttprg #federicosohns #modiphius

The Weekly 075: Stuff of Legend Puppet Actual Play, Muppetborn for 5E and Zinequest 3 on Kickstarter

We talk about the new actual play series, Stuff of Legend, that uses puppets to play out the action of their roleplay session. Is the future of AP felt-based? In the same spirit, we take a look at the Muppetborn race for 5E by BJ Hypes. It is a well made and very charming way to play Kermit the Assassin. Finally, this month will bring us 470 indie zine RPG projects on Kickstarter as part of Zinequest 3. It is a chance for game designers to create a physical version of their projects that may have only been available digitally in the past.

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?

Idle Red Hands 056: Game of Thrones Play D&D, Indomitus 40k 9E Box, Magic Cards Banned, Legend of Vox Machina Delayed and KFConsole

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.

Video: Blackmoor Interview: Cut out of History

The third part of our interview with one of the filmmakers for Secrets of Blackmoor: The Secret History of Dungeons & Dragons.

In this excerpt, we learn the story of a group of friends who all contributed to the story of D&D and creatively played off each other to have fun. However, for many, they’ve been cut out of history and the goal of Secrets of Blackmoor is to correct that.
