Solo concept art

A preview of the art of Solo, featuring a much more different early Millennium Falcon, a scruffy-looking Lando and... Highland cows?

Solo: A Star Wars Story

More in a week. In the meantime, Leverage would be a better game for it than Edge Of The Empire.

A botch I didn't even roll

Just had a Windows 10 update take half an hour, go from 51% to 45% on the timeline, require me to go into the command prompt to get the internet back online and I just had to remind it I have a UK keyboard.

Warhammer Adventures

Warhammer novels for the 8-12 bracket, for Age of Sigmar but also Warhammer 40,000, which seems more of a stretch to me because AoS has, you know, good guys in it.

Good to see non-white and female main characters in both series, and a disabled character in the 40K book.

And all of the 40K kids are heretics.

Thanks to Tumbleweed on RPG.net for the news.

More here, including writer Cavan Scott talking about starting the 40K line.

Drop-in settings

MMM suggests this:
Something I would love to see more of on #DMsGuild is locations that I can drop into a campaign. Local village, remote monastery, abandoned fortress, mining camp, farmers market, etc. Describe the location, add in half a dozen interesting NPCs, & a handful of story hooks, done.
I’ve been thinking about something similar for Storytellers Vault. D&D parties typically travel around more than Vampire: The Masquerade coteries, but there are plenty of classic locations like the dingy Rack nightclub, the police station, and the Tremere chantry.

Animated game maps

Dynamic Dungeons and other similar systems look fantastic if you have a screen on your table.

Stand By Me

That was a very nice touch, one of several in fact, like the sermon and the converted electric Jaguar.

Crusader Kings: The Boardgame

Paradox Interactive has announced a move into boardgames as well as RPGs, with Free League adapting Crusader Kings. It’s a big one - 70 miniatures, 306 tokens, 289 cards, 10 family and 5 dynasty boards as well as the main board. The Kickstarter page includes a link to the rules beta.

Best of luck
