A little while back we showed off the cover to the new edition of the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game, featuring the Twelfth Doctor and his adventures for the first time. Much like the Doctor himself, the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game has had a few different faces in its time. However, just like the Doctor, beneath the covers is the same game we’ve always known and loved.
In today’s blog, let’s take a look at them all!
We had a busy week on the blog last week, not only asking “what do you do?” in World War Cthulhu: Cold War and taking a look at how the new setting relates to World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, but also releasing Keltia in stores and the latest supplement for Yggdrasill, Uppsala, for pre-order.
This week is even more action packed, as we’ve got a new PDF supplement for The Laundry RPG coming out as well as unveiling the cover for the next supplement for Kuro. We’ll also be continuing our delve into the background for World War Cthulhu: Cold War and taking a look at the other supplements we've got planned for it.
But that’s all for later in the week – what’s going on today?
Voting for the 2015 ENnies closes tomorrow, Tuesday 14th July. Cubicle 7 are nominated for four products, as well as fan-favourite publisher, and we’d really appreciate your vote! We’re up for Best Family Game (for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space Limited Edition), Best RPG-related Product (for Doctor Who: The Card Game 2nd Edition), Best Supplement (for The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook) and Best Free Product (for Arrowdown, for the Doctor Who RPG).
If you’ve not voted for us yet – you’ve still got time to do so here!
The latest Bundle of Holding is the Fantasy Frontiers collection, a bundle of fantastic fantasy roleplay settings. Amongst the PDFs included for a bargain price in the bundle is the Yggdrasill Core Rulebook – great timing if your curiosity about Norse adventure was sparked by the release of Uppsala last week!
Finally, there are just 8 days left to go for our latest Kickstarter project, World War Cthulhu: Cold War, and we’re closing in on our next stretch goal for a PDF set of handouts for use in your games. World War Cthulhu line developer Scott Dorward has been doing the rounds on the podcasts at the weekend, recording a special episode with The Good Friends of Jackson Elias, wherein he talks at great length about what makes the Cold War such a fascinating setting for Call of Cthulhu. Check it out here, and remember you can still pledge here.
There's just one day left to take of our massive summer blockbuster sale on all physical items over at our webstore.
But with so much great stuff on offer, how do you know what to pick? To help, we asked some of the Cubicle 7 team to pick their favourite books. Today, Andrew Kenrick picks his favourite book: The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook.
What a way to kick off a new week! Not only is our World War Cthulhu: Cold War Kickstarter continuing to break stretch goals (more on that later), but the 2015 ENnie Awards nominations are up!
We’re delighted to have been nominated for four awards – as well as to be nominated for best publisher:
Best Family Game: Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space Limited Edition Rulebook
Best RPG-related Product: Doctor Who: The Card Game 2nd Edition
Best Supplement: The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook, for the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game
Best Free Product: Arrowdown, for the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game
The ENnies are an annual set of awards voted on by you, the gaming public. You can vote from the 4th July and it runs until 14th July - and we’d really appreciate both your vote and your help spreading the word! The results will be announced at GenCon in July.
On the shelves of US gaming stores this week – The Ninth Doctor Sourcebook and Ruins of the North! They will be available to buy in stores in the rest of the world soon.
The Ninth Doctor Sourcebook is the latest in our line of supplements for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space covering the adventures of each incarnation; and Ruins of the North is new anthology of six adventures for The One Ring Roleplaying Game.
Last weekend the Cubicle 7 team were at the Origins Game Fair. We were one of the sponsors of the show this year, which was super exciting for us – Origins is one of our favourite conventions and it was thrilling to keep seeing our posters and banners around the venue.
We had a great show, so asked asked some of the team to write about their Origins experience.
We’re pleased to be able to update on the progress of Ruins of the North, our forthcoming adventure anthology for The One Ring Roleplaying Game; it has left the printers and is en route to our warehouses both in the US and the UK. If you’ve not pre-ordered it yet, then you still have a little bit of time left to do so!
We’re also over the moon to have been nominated for two Origins Awards! Both our card game, Hobbit Tales, and The Darkening of Mirkwood campaign for The One Ring are up for Best RPG Supplement. Our first card game, Doctor Who: The Card Game, won an Origins Award when it was first released, so let’s see if we can scoop a second one with our second card game; and Shadows over Scotland won an Origins Award for Best RPG Supplement, so let's see if we can add another trophy from that category to our cabinet!
On the shelves of US gaming stores now – The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space.
Each of the Doctor Sourcebooks is a must for fans of the show and gamers alike, as they're a complete guide to the televised adventures of each of the Doctor's incarnations, presenting detailed information about each episode alongside material for use in the game, from NPCs and gadgets to aliens and creatures!
But The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook is more than just a guide to the show – it also contains a complete, 12-part campaign too, the Doom of the Daleks.
Hitting the shelves of US gaming stores this week –The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook!
The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook is the latest in our line of supplements for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space covering the adventures of each incarnation. It also contains an epic twelve-part campaign – Doom of the Daleks – that sees the Doctor’s companions journeying back through his timeline to save him from the Daleks’ most insidious weapon.
Welcome back! We’ve all been away over Easter taking a well-earned break, but are back at our respective desks and raring to go!
We’ve got all sorts of news and new products for you over the coming weeks, from Keltia and The SOE Handbook for World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, to covers for forthcoming One Ring supplements, our next Kickstarter and more besides – as always, keep an eye on the website! The Eighth Doctor Sourcebook is also in US stores this week, and we’ll be taking another look at that tomorrow.
