February 2017: View from the Pelgrane’s Nest

The TimeWatch and Dracula Dossier Kickstarters have reached new milestones. TimeWatch backers have received the PDF versions of the The TimeWatch GM Screen and Resource Guide and The Valkyrie Gambit, in advance of the pre-orderers for these. The Hawkins Papers are being assembled over the next week.

Today is new Pelgrane Alex Roberts’ first day! We welcome her to the nest. She has undergone the secret three-fold ritual, and learned the company song.

Cthulhu Confidential

We will be closing pre-orders for Cthulhu Confidential on 21st March. Fight the Mythos alone, in this noir-flavoured GUMSHOE One-2-One game for one player and one GM. It’s our best selling game since 13th Age! Next month will see the release of the first of the PDF adventures, for  House Up in the Hill.


coverA set of three adventures for TimeWatch, The Valkyrie Gambit and The TimeWatch GM Screen and Resource Book are on pre-order this month. Backers have the PDFs; pre-orderers will get them in a week or so’s time. They will be printed and shipped to backers first.

13th Age

13th Age has suffered from a log jam. We have a host of amazing products lined up and in development, but we’ve had problems clearing them through. Gen Con ends up being our target for these books, so we’ve had to do a lot of juggling and hard thinking. This is the tentative release order as it stand for the next three books at least The Bestiary 2Battle Scenes 3, The Book of Demons then Shards of the Broken Sky.

I’ve been running a weekly game of 13th Age, and testing out the new Bestiary 2 creatures, including the Hellmarsh Cultists, Gibbering Mouther and Salamander, in part to deal with a character with a very, very high AC. It did the trick!

Trail of Cthulhu

Steve Dempsey has been on a mammoth writing spree and Fearful Symmetries – in which you play a group of magicians in 1930s England – now stands at 80,000 words. We expect the first draft by the end of March.

Yellow Sign

It’s one month until the Yellow King RPG Kickstarter. Here is Robin’ sneak preview of what you can expect in actual play.
