Idle Red Hands Weekly 062: Twilight 2000, Green Ronin’s Sword Chronicle, Thousand Suns RPG, Visigoths vs. Mall Goths and DTRPG medals

Free League is developing a new version of Twilight 2000 that was funded on Kickstarter. It will be a boxed set and was developed in collaboration with Game Designer’s Workshop. The Chronicle system that powered Green Ronin’s A Song of Ice and Fire RPG will now be available as a setting neutral ruleset called Sword Chronicle. There were some minor to armor and intrigue, but it will play very similar to the first incarnation. Thousand Suns RPG by Grognardia Games and designed by James Maliszewski is worth a look if you are looking for a scfi system that was inspired by the “imperial” science fiction of the 1950s and 60s. It uses a 2d12 system called the 12 Degree system. Chris will play in a session of Visigoths vs. Mall Goths by Lucius Kahn @oh_theogony. Plus a quick explanation of what the medals awarded to DriveThru RPG sellers mean.

Idle Red Hands Weekly 049: Tales From the Loop Boardgame and Series, Warzone is Back, Superman Plays 40k, CMON suspended, Ankh and Frosthaven on Kickstarter

This week we discuss the Tales From the Loop Amazon series and the well-timed Free League boardgame on Kickstarter. Idle Red Hands is producing The Complete Mutant Chronicles, a video lore series about the Mutant Chronicles and Warzone setting. The Professional Nerd, @BryanCPSteele , announced that Res Nova has the license to produce a new edition of Warzone. The Man of Steel, Henry Cavill confirms his love for Warhammer 40k on Instagram. CMON ceases trading on the Hong Kong stock exchange because of “auditing issues”. They also launched a Kickstarter for Ankh: Gods of Egypt, which is third in the series of games by Eric M. Lang, including Blood Rage and Rising Sun. Fantasy Grounds reports a 150% boost in online sessions on their platform. Now maybe the time to see what a virtual tabletop is all about. The sequel to Gloomhaven is also live on Kickstarter. Frosthaven looks to be an equally impressive game and the designer, Isaac Childes, couldn’t deserve another big success more. He runs a great crowdfunding campaign. Here’s hoping things get back to normal soon and these projects go well.

Apologies for the sound quality this week. We recorded remotely for the first time since the shutdown in Japan. We will get the bugs worked out for next week.

Idle Red Hands Weekly 044; Altered Carbon RPG, Mörk Borg, Cleric Love Domain, Ironsworn Solo RPG

Altered Carbon is getting an RPG setting and a second season on Netflix. Hot Topic now has Critical Role gear. Mörk Borg by Stockholm Kartell, is being released by Free League’s new boutique imprint. The Love Domain for Clerics in 5E fails miserably and is being retooled. Ironsworn is a FREE TTRPG with co-op, solo and campaign modes. Foreign television dramas with subtitles help immerse you and give you great campaign setting ideas. We have some recommendations.
