When we previewed some art from Bestiary 5 a few weeks ago, it merely looked like a cool book of monsters. Now that we’ve got our hands on it, we’re convinced that even the most jaded, been-there-done-that gamer is going to need a copy. This is a killer creature collection.
I can never, ever get enough monsters for my RPGs. Never. I will fill entire bookshelves, binders, and hard drives with nothing but monsters. I suspect I’m not alone, so check out this gallery of creatures from the upcoming Pathfinder Bestiary 5.
Two major RPG sourcebooks, Wizards of the Coast’s D&D Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide and Paizo’s Inner Sea Races for Pathfinder, both came out in the last few weeks! Here’s why you should skip them both, no matter what RPG system you’re using.
Space wizards casting spells through the ship’s turrets, enraged barbarians teleporting onto the enemy bridge, perilous occult mysteries that span planets, bizarre alien creatures lurking in the interplanetary void—Aethera is not your typical Pathfinder campaign setting.
Awaken is a tabletop RPG that puts players in the role of Vasalli—superpowered heroes who are destined to battle the monstrous Vargans. Dark times, epic deeds, and a handful of six-sided dice.
Do you want 300 more monsters for your 5E D&D campaign? That’s a rhetorical question, of course you do. We’ve got a cosmic space dragon and an empire of ghouls from the upcoming Tome of Beasts to show you, because monsters are awesome.
To truly and properly enjoy a role-playing game, you need a group to play with. Finding a group—especially the right group—can be a major hurdle to participating in this really excellent hobby. This guide will help you find fellow gamers no matter your location or age.
Can 45 layers of bulletproof glass—45 layers that combine to make a 16-inch thick bullet stopping wall, mind you—survive against a RPG-7 rocket launcher? The idea is to find out if it’s possible to use bulletproof glass to armor a tank against anti-tank weapons such as a RPG.
Every gamer has their gamer origin story. Here’s mine.
If the science-fantasy world of RPG Numenera wasn’t weird enough for you (with its Aeon Priests and forgotten technologies and invisible ziggurats), its creators are planning to take it into space, beneath the oceans, and into other dimensions with Into the Ninth World.
When the first edition of Blue Rose was published 10 years ago, it found a core audience of gamers that loved its unique take on romantic fantasy—and a few who pushed back against the game’s progressive push for inclusiveness. Now Blue Rose is back, and it’s found a better system and a wider audience.
You might use GURPS to play a fantasy campaign, then try a cyberpunk campaign, then switch to superheroes next. Or you might just have a wizard with a machine gun alongside a psi-mutant cyborg on a Sherman tank. That’s the power of GURPS.
The 1980s Marvel Super Heroes RPG was well-designed and was supported by a ton of supplements and adventures. But the greatest thing about it was the FASERIP chart, the one chart that could tell you once and for all who would win in a fight, Thor or the Hulk.
Occult Adventures looks like the perfect guidebook to take your Pathfinder adventures in a much weirder direction. It includes new classes, spells, guides on occult rituals and psychic powers... let’s be honest, we probably had some of you at “occult.” For the rest, enjoy this preview!

Now there are more ways to enjoy the revised and expanded 5th-anniversary collection, with integrated encounters for Hero Lab and a custom sound effects set, so you can experience these…
Here's footage from Vickers Tactical showing what firing a RPG-7 looks like in slow motion. It's like a rocket launch, only turned horizontal. The back blast off is so huge that it might be just as bad to stand directly behind the RPG as it would be to stand it front of it. Okay, maybe not. But still.
No swords. No wizards. Just regular humans, in way over their heads as they work to uncover the mind-shattering horrors of the Lovecraftian mythos. That's the promise of the Call of Cthulhu RPG, and over 30 years later we're still coming back for more.
