50thanniversary

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, we’ve been releasing a series of Doctor Sourcebooks for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space roleplaying game, releasing a new book every couple of months.

Each book takes an in-depth look at an incarnation of the Doctor, featuring his companions, enemies, allies, gadgets and more. Each presents each of the Doctor’s adventures, giving an overview of the action and themes, exploring how you can use them in your games. We’ll also give you suggestions for further adventures based on the events depicted. As well as being packed with information for use in your games, the books are full of images from that Doctor’s incarnation, and are a wonderful fan resource for the show’s history.

The books are US letter-size (standard RPG size, 8.5”x11”), hardcover, full colour and each is between 160 and 256 pages long. We have commissioned a montage of the eleven Doctors, which will run across the spines of the Sourcebooks when they are on the shelf. The montage is also designed to sit on the shelf next to the Limited Edition Rulebook too!

So far we’ve released the First, Second and Third Doctor Sourcebooks in print, with The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook en route as we speak. The Fifth Doctor Sourcebook is at the printers, and The Sixth Doctor Sourcebook has just been released in PDF format.

The Subscription Deal Returns

When we first announced the series, we offered a time-limited subscription deal for fans to be sent each of the books as they were released. We were blown away by both the uptake of this deal, and by those of you who missed out asking if we’ll do another subscription.

As we’re over half way through the series, we thought the time was right to launch a new subscription deal to give fans of the game who missed out first time round a way to get themselves a great deal on the second half of the series, have them sent as soon as they are available, and to support us in the creation of this series. Note that this is a time-limited offer (no pun intended!).

The Deal – the Later Years

Seventh-Doctor-cover-sml

This includes:

  • Five titles: The Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctor Sourcebooks (the first three books in the deal are 160 pages long, the last two 240 pages).
  • Both physical copies and PDFs.

The MSRP for these books will be $185/£126 plus shipping – the subscription deal is $165/£110 plus shipping, a saving of $20/£16.

Shipping

The shipping rate depends on where the books are delivered to – 10% of the total order for UK/USA, 20% for Canada/Europe and 35% for everywhere else.

Timescale

The Seventh Doctor Book is due to be delivered in October, with the PDF being available in August. The Eighth Doctor Book is almost complete, with the Ninth, Tenth and Eleventh Doctor Books well underway too. As originally announced, we aim to carry on releasing a book every other month. Of course, unanticipated delays can crop up, and in this case we will communicate with you on progress. In any case, subscribers will receive both the books as soon as they are available, and also get exclusive access to the PDFs before they go on sale anywhere else.

Cancellation and Refunds

If, for whatever reason, you need to cancel your subscription, we will refund your subscription fee minus the full cost and shipping of the books you’ve had already.

We’ll be starting the pre-order for Rivendell, the latest supplement for The One Ring Roleplaying Game, in a few weeks. In the intervening weeks, we’ll be taking a much closer look at all aspects of the supplement, starting off with a detailed look at its contents.

TOR_Rivendell_cover400

Firstly, designer of The One Ring, Francesco Nepitello, explains his vision behind Rivendell:

“Rivendell is a true ‘companion’ to the core rules of The One Ring. It contains very important rules, things that can be considered to be outside the scope of the very focused design goal of the original game, but that will certainly be very welcomed by all fans, everywhere… ”

So, with that in mind, let's take a look at what you can expect to find inside Rivendell:

The Last Homely House – As you might have deduced from its title, Rivendell contains a detailed description of the House of Elrond and the famous characters who dwell within it. As well as Imladris itself, there are rules for all many of unique Fellowship undertakings that characters who have discovered Rivendell can attempt. Rivendell makes for a rightly fabled sanctuary, but not one you can just wander into…

The Lands of EriadorRivendell is a setting guide for far more than just the Vale of Imladris, as it also contains a region guide for the whole of Eastern Eriador, from the Midgewater Marshes and the Barrow-downs in the west to the foothills of the Misty Mountains in the east; from Tharbad in the south to Angmar in the north. As with Heart of the Wild, each of the regions is described in-depth, along with a selection of locations and characters to use in your own games. There’s also a detailed look at the history of the region, including the rise and fall of Arnor and Angmar.

A Bestiary of New Monsters – Despite the efforts of the Rangers of the North, the lands of Eriador are home to many dangerous creatures, from the Hobbit-hating Orcs of Mount Gram to the meanest Troll of them all, the Queen of Castle Hill. But monsters of flesh and blood are the least of a company’s worries, for the dead do not rest easily in these lands, and so the Undead are described in more detail than ever before. Finally, for companies who find even these foes no match, a set of rules for Powerful Adversaries are included, to make any monster a deadly threat. And last but not least, rules for the Witch-king himself.

Rules for Magical Treasure – The shining jewel (or glittering crown, perhaps) of the new rules found in Rivendell are those for adding magical treasure to your games, not only including expansive rules that a Loremaster might use to create his own fabled artefacts, but also a selection of ready-made treasures, both famous and new. Some whisper that we have been mad enough to provide rules for the One Ring itself, but surely none would be so bold, or foolish…

Rules for the Eye of Mordor – The Shadow grows long upon these lands, and it said that a baleful eye now looks out from Mordor itself. The troubling attention of the Enemy is represented by a new set of optional rules, allowing the Loremaster to track how much attention a company draws, and the terrible consequences should they be noticed by the Eye itself…

New Heroic Cultures – Last but by no means least, Rivendell also includes rules for two new playable cultures, the Rangers of the North and the High Elves of Rivendell. Both are unique, in their own ways, as they are more powerful than any of those presented in The One Ring so far, and yet present a player with their own set of challenges.

RivendellFinally, we asked Francesco what he thought would excite fans of The One Ring the most:

The rules for Magical Treasure and the Rangers of the North will probably be what will excite them the most. The fans have been very vocal in saying that they want to see official rules for those. The biggest surprise, however, might be the rules for the High Elves of Rivendell. The way we handle them is special, something that will really surprise everyone!”

Rivendell is written by Francesco Nepitello, with additional contributions from Amado Angulo, Shane Ivey, Andrew Kenrick, Marco Maggi, Thomas Morwinsky and James M. Spahn. It is lavishly illustrated by Jon Hodgson, Jan Pospíšil and Jeremy McHugh, with fantastic maps of Eastern Eriador created by Paul Bourne. We’ll be showcasing just some of their art over the coming weeks too.

The Sixth Doctor Sourcebook

Sixth-doctor-cover-600
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, this sourcebook explores the Sixth Doctor’s adventures on Earth and beyond. With detailed information on all the allies, enemies, aliens and gadgets that he encounters, as well as examining each of his adventures, the book contains a wealth of material for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space RPG, and is also a fact-packed resource for fans of the show!

After sacrificing his life to save Peri in the Caves of Androzani, the Doctor regenerated into his most flamboyant, arrogant and frightening incarnation yet. Save Earth from Halley’s Comet, do battle with the alien mastermind Sil, twice, and face not just the Master – but the Rani too! Return to past adventures, battle terrible foes old and new and face the ultimate trial – the trial of a Time Lord.

It’s time for a change my dear, and not a moment too soon.

primeval-evolution-cover-400When we released the Primeval Roleplaying Game, the book explicitly set out to cover series 1-3 of the show, with advice, rules and campaign frameworks for running games set in that period. At the time, we promised that we’d cover series 4-5 in a later supplement, and with the game’s latest supplement, Primeval Evolution, hitting gaming stores this week, we’ve done just that.

Not only does Primeval Evolution give you all the tools you’ll need to play games set during series 4 and 5 – including updated character profiles, new characters and locations, as well as campaign frameworks to fit the style of series 4 and 5 – but it also provides a guide to every episode in the last two series too.

This makes it both interesting and informative as a reference guide to fans of the show, as well as indispensable to Gamemasters. Each episode guide is accompanied by a selection of ‘further adventures’, plot hooks and adventure seeds inspired by the episode that a Gamemaster can use in their own games.

PrimevalEvolution4
Couple this with the vast array of monsters previously introduced in Primeval's first supplement, Primeval Companion, and it’s going to be a while before a Gamemaster runs out of plots and dinosaurs to throw at his players!

And, because Primeval is powered by the Vortex System – the same system used by Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space and Rocket Age – Gamemasters of those games will find the information, rules and monster stats in all the Primeval books useful too, for when the TARDIS winds up in the Jurassic era or a rocket ship crashes onto some primordial world populated with prehistoric monsters!

Primeval Evolution is available in stores now, as well as on our own webstore. You can also get the PDF here.

About Primeval Evolution

More time travelling, more conspiracies, more danger.

It’s Primeval…evolved.

The ARC has been gutted, with the core of the team dead or lost in time. Now, under new leadership and with the aid of the shadowy Prospero Industries, it must rebuild, for the stakes are higher than ever.

Primeval Evolution expands your game by introducing the climactic events of Series 4 and 5, adding more options and adventures for your team to face. From the dangers posed by the artificial anomaly, the New Dawn Prototype, to getting lost in time or fighting carnivorous future beetles, you’re going to need to be sharper than ever to survive this time.

PrimevalEvolutionChangingHistory

This 164-page book contains:

  • A complete guide for Series 4 and 5, including all the webisodes.
  • Ideas for running campaigns set during Series 4 and 5.
  • New technology, including the HMS Gartside, new locations and new threats.
  • New non-ARC campaign frameworks, including For Queen and Country and the Time Tribe.
  • Rules for characters lost in time and space, temporal damage and new rules for Anomalies.
  • Three new adventures.

164 pages, softcover, black and white interior.

About Heroes of the Solar System

Freebooters rampage across Mars, Nazis plot new atrocities, savage beasts prey on colonists and above all the sinister Europans loom. The solar system needs heroes – heroes like you!

Heroes of the Solar System, the second sourcebook for Rocket Age, offers you a look at the heroes of the rocket set. The focus of Heroes of the Solar System is on the player characters, though Gamemasters will still find plot hooks and episode ideas galore.

This book is just filled with new ideas for familiar species, new organizations for your heroes to fight for (and sometimes against), new equipment to use in their explorations and adventures, new character traits, and new species.

HotSS-05-10

Heroes of the Solar System contains:

  • 4 new types of sophont for you to play: the beloved Lizard Monkeys of Venus, the ancient Robomen of Mars, the winged Jovians of the skies of Jupiter and the utterly bizarre Metisians, cephalopodian soldiers of the Europans.
  • Expanded background for each of the 13 sophonts from the Rocket Age rulebook. How long does a Maduri live? What sort of material culture do the Venusians have? Are all Martians lactose intolerant? The answers to these questions and more besides are in here!
  • 10 new heroic organizations for your heroes to join up with – or for the Gamemaster to use as antagonists – from the Europan Emissary Corps to the International Comintern and the Rocket Rangers themselves. The structure, history and operations of each organization is fully detailed, along with a typical NPC, a selection of plot hooks and character packages for playing an agent of the organization.
  • Over 50 new Traits for your characters to pick from, from Don’t Die on Me! and Percussive Maintenance to Space Sick and Wanted Man, and more esoteric options besides.

120 pages, softcover, black and white interior.

Heroes of the Solar System is also available in PDF from RPGNow and DriveThruRPG!
