With the return of Doctor Who to our TV screens last Saturday and the recent release of the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space Limited Edition Rulebook, it's likely that many of you will be starting up new games or resuming existing campaigns.

There's all manner of free resources available to you on our website, from character sheets for both time travellers and TARDIS' alike (available here), to free samples from various sourcebooks (which you can find here).

The latest addition is a printer-friendly version of the character and reference sheet, as the last thing you want to be doing while battling Daleks is changing the ink toner. Click on the image below to download it!

And if you're not worried about depleting your ink, a new version of the character sheet (as seen in the Limited Edition Rulebook), also with the reference sheet on the back, can be found here:

Of course, the black and white look is also appropriate for campaigns set in the First and Second Doctor eras, while the full-colour character sheet is great for more modern campaigns!

You can still become a subscriber for a very limited time with the Later Years Doctors Subscription deal at our webstore.

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.

The Deal – the Later Years

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 September, 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.

Hitting the shelves of US gaming stores today – The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space and The Darkening of Mirkwood for The One Ring Roleplaying Game.

4th doc mirkwood banner

Stores elsewhere in the world should be receiving their copies soon. We’re also pleased to confirm that all UK pre-orders of The Darkening of Mirkwood and The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook have now been dispatched, with pre-orders to the rest of the world well on their way too.

About The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook

The-Fourth-Doctor-Pyramids-of-Mars-Cover-400

Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, this Sourcebook explores the Fourth 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!

Freed from his exile on Earth, the Doctor returned to his wandering ways, drawn to some of the great battles of the cosmos. Team up with a fellow Time Lord and a robot dog, explore E-Space, search for the Key to Time and return to Gallifrey as its saviour. Uncover the secrets of the Pyramids of Mars, change the destiny of the Daleks and thwart the machinations of the Master’s final incarnation.

But first things first... would you like a jelly baby?

This 256-page book contains:

  • Character sheets for the Fourth Doctor and his companions, including Sarah Jane Smith and both incarnations of Romana.
  • How to run games that feel like they belong in the Fourth Doctor’s era.
  • New character traits and gadgets.

About The Darkening of Mirkwood

Darkening of Mirkwood

The Necromancer may have been cast out of Dol Guldur, but a lingering darkness remains over Mirkwood, a shadow that will grow ever longer as the years draw on – unless a fellowship of heroes step forward and hold back the gloom.

The Darkening of Mirkwood is a complete campaign for The One Ring, set in Mirkwood over the course of three decades. It allows you to tell your own epic saga, following your heroes in their quest as the tale of years unfolds before them.

This supplement includes enough adventure material to keep you playing for months or even years, as well as new rules that give your heroes a real stake in what happens to the world around them. Rules for Holdings allow them to carve out their own corner of Middle-earth, whilst new options for the Fellowship Phase and Undertakings to achieve allow them to chart their own path.

Visit the Parliament of Spiders, do battle with the Nazgûl, meddle in the affairs of Wizards and enter the Halls of King Thranduil. Stand firm against the Shadow and maybe the Darkening of Mirkwood can be averted. Falter for even a moment and all that you know and love will be lost.

This 144-page supplement includes:

  • A campaign spanning 30 years worth of game time, including complete adventures and plot hooks in abundance.
  • Stats for the Nazgûl for the first time.
  • New Fellowship phase undertakings.
  • Rules for Holdings, allowing heroes to carve out their own corner of Middle-earth.

144 pages, hardcover, full-colour interior.

The Darkening of Mirkwood – also available in PDF now!

Voting for the 2014 ENnies Awards is now open, and we’re delighted to have been nominated for three awards – as well as best publisher:

We’re also over the moon to have received a Judges’ Spotlight Award for the Rocket Age Roleplaying Game: thank you to Stacy Muth for picking us for it!

Today we're casting a little light on one of the nominated products: The Third Doctor Sourcebook for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space.

The Third Doctor Sourcebook

3rd-doctor-sourcebook-cover

Celebrating the 50th anniversary year of Doctor Who, this Sourcebook explores the Third Doctor’s adventures on Earth and beyond. Written by Walt Ciechanowski and Graeme Walmsley, it contains 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!

Exiled to Earth and prevented from travelling in time, the Doctor became UNIT’s scientific adviser and defended Earth against all manner of sinister threats! Face the plastic horror of the Autons, stop hordes of alien spiders and thwart the machinations of dangerous conspiracies! We’re running out of time, so quick - reverse the polarity of the neutron flow!

And above all, beware the Doctor’s ultimate nemesis - beware the Master!

The Third Doctor Sourcebook starts off with full backgrounds and character sheets for the Third Doctor and all of his companions, from Sarah Jane Smith to Jo Grant and Mike Smith. It also has a detailed look at how to make a Third Doctor adventure, examining the themes and tropes of this era.

The real meat of the book is in the detailed episode write-ups, each giving a thorough synopsis of what happened and then a lengthy discussion on how you might run it as an adventure in your own game, with stats for both the monsters and the major NPCs. There's loads of plot hooks too, so if your players have watched just as many episodes as you, you can still surprise them with new adventures!

You can check out a free sample of the episode write-up for The Day of the Daleks here, which gives you a flavour of how each of the episodes is handled.

GeekNative reviewed The Third Doctor Sourcebook here, so you don't just have to take our word for it!

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.
