Star Saga Week Round-Up
All this week, we’ve been delving into Star Saga, our new Sci-Fi Dungeon Crawler. Six elite mercenaries are tasked with infiltrating a high-security research complex and retrieving the dangerous intel held within – plus escape with their lives!

Filled with awesome pre-assembled miniatures, 3D scenery, exciting missions and hours of fun gameplay, you can find out everything you ever wanted to know about the game below.

Just what kind of individuals are hired by the nefarious Blaine for his missions? Read here to meet the mercenaries of the Eiras Contract, from the blade-wielding Judwan, Wrath, to the ex-GCPS captain, Erika Dulinsky.
Star Saga: The Eiras Contract – Available Now!
If you’re eager to get a closer look at what’s in the Core Game, fear not. Our very own Rob and Martin are on the case, giving Star Saga a thorough unboxing!
Star Saga can be played by up to five players at once, but one of the cool aspects of the rules is that you can also play them solo or cooperatively, without the Nexus Player. Check out this blog for more info on solo/co-op play!
Alternatively, if you want to play as the Nexus Player, you’ll need every trick up your sleeve to use your minions and abilities to overwhelm the mercenaries. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with some great gameplay tips for budding Nexus overlords.
As your mercenaries progress through campaigns, they’ll earn experience for completing objectives and defeating enemies. This experience in turn unlocks powerful abilities that’ll will make your strike team even more dangerous. You can find out more about experience here.
Star Saga: The Eiras Contract Available NOW!

STAR SAGA: THE EIRAS CONTRACT – AVAILABLE NOW!

Wyrd Games – Friday Preview

Posted on December 15th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

A Wyrd Games Friday ‘The Other Side’ preview…
——————–
Happy Friday Wyrdos!  I’m not really sure how they snuck in here, but this week’s Friday Preview is of the Infiltrators!  Let’s take a quick look, before they sneak off again.  
Every nation on Earth makes use of diplomats and spies, but few do it as well as the King’s Empire. The Infiltrators are the Empire’s light combat stealth unit, trained in part by his Majesty’s spies and in part by the military. This grants them a tactical flexibility on the battlefield that many military forces lack.

Armed with simple pistols, mines, and camouflage, the Infiltrators do not shy away from any conflict. While they excel at distracting the enemy and controlling the battlefield, they are just as capable of charging into the heart of battle, guns blazing, to accomplish their objectives.

On the tabletop, Infiltrators can deploy ahead of the rest of the Company, giving them the ability to quickly claim objectives. Though their weapons are not potent, their Confuse and Place Mines Actions can keep the battlefield changing in unpredictable ways.
Thoughts and comments are (as usual) most welcome

Privateer Press – December Releases

Posted on December 14th, 2017 under , , , , , , , , , , , , , , . Posted by

The latest releases from Privateer Press…

DECEMBER NEW RELEASES
LIEUTENANT BASTION FALK – CYGNAR SOLO
A battle-hardened gun mage of the Order of the Arcane Tempest, Lieutenant Bastian Falk takes on special assignments in support of the Cygnaran Army. He has mastered several unique tactics over the years and is particularly notable for the rare ability to use his gun mage powers through a scattergun, allowing him to unleash a devastating barrage to tear through enemy ranks.
PIP 31128
MSRP: $11.99
CHAMPION OF THE ORDER OF THE WALL – PROTECTORATE SOLO
Champions of the Order of the Wall inspire their fellow paladins to push past their limits even as they ride down enemies of the faith. Hails of gunfire rebound harmlessly off the heavy shields of these master horsemen as they charge across the field, utterly decimating anything unlucky enough to be caught on the wrong end of their blazing lances.
PIP 32128
MSRP: $39.99
KAPITAN SOFIA SKIROVA – KHADOR SOLO
Kapitan Sofia Skirova has earned a place of prestige among the officers of the Black Dragons, the elite of the elite, veteran Iron Fangs who have vowed never to retire from active duty. She ably demonstrates why their emblem is feared, intercepting blows intended for her soldiers while refusing death itself so long as her brothers and sisters in arms are threatened.
PIP 33126
MSRP: $14.99
AGRIMONY, CRONE OF THE DYING STRANDS – CRYX SOLO
The terrifying and ghostly witch Agrimony, more often whispered of as the Crone of the Dying Strands, is herself enslaved to Captain Rengrave, the first citizen of Cryx. She is nearly as old as her master, once having ruled her own island and standing apart from the pirate kings of old, who feared her curses.
PIP 34138
MSRP: $13.99
HARPY – RETRIBUTION LIGHT WARJACK
Representing an expansion of House Vyre’s myrmidon production in support of the Retribution of Scyrah, the Harpy is a formidable machine that generates deadly blasts of wind designed to hurl adversaries back, if they are not immediately torn apart. It is a sleek engine of death favored by the more tactically minded warcasters of Ios.
PIP 35088
MSRP: $22.99
SIREN – RETRIBUTION LIGHT WARJACK
House Vyre was once noted for its sinister weapons of war, and the Siren harkens back to those morally dubious inventions. Capable of mystically seizing control of those it slays to turn them against their former allies, the Siren makes use of terrifying technology. Only the dire nature of the Retribution’s cause justifies its use, employed only against those who would harm the gods.
PIP 35089
MSRP: $22.99
EMINENT CONFIGURATOR ORION – CONVERGENCE WARCASTER
The vast energies controlled by the Convergence of Cyriss are focused and harnessed by machinery tuned to the alignment of the stars and other celestial bodies, an art perfected by Eminent Configurator Orion. He cares little for the lives of lesser beings. Directing potent blasts of geomantic energy to scythe through his enemies, Orion can calculate an array of trajectories using higher mathematics in fractions of a second.
PIP 36031
MSRP: $19.99
LIEUTENANT CROSSE, RESISTANCE FIGHTER – MERCENARY WARCASTER
Under the mentorship of Marshal Ashlynn d’Elyse, Gastone Crosse has begun to reach his potential and fights alongside the other determined warriors of the Llaelese Resistance. Yet he struggles to control the weapon that first unlocked his warcaster ability. A survivor with a proven knack for battlefield improvisation, few who fight alongside him know of the darkness weighing on his conscience, as the soul of every foe he kills is consumed to strengthen him.
PIP 41135
MSRP: $14.99
DIRE TROLL BRAWLER – TROLLBLOOD HEAVY WARBEAST
Dire Troll Brawlers go to battle wielding oversized flails made from stout iron chain and scavenged scrap metal. Bellowing primitive war cries, brawlers hurl themselves at any opponent, swinging these chains in sweeping, unpredictable arcs. What these trolls lack in intelligence they compensate for with raw delight in brutal combat and laying their opponents low.
PIP 71118
MSRP: $34.99
WOLD WIGHT – CIRCLE LIGHT WARBEAST
The Wold Wight is a fiercely aggressive construct fabricated amid older rituals of the Circle Orboros; it is an entity that hungers to destroy. While its blazing lanterns are fearsome weapons, their true purpose is to set the wight ablaze. While afire, the wight closes with an enemy to devour it in a sacrificial pyre that consumes everything but the wight’s stone heart, which can be salvaged.
PIP 72103
MSRP: $11.99
ICE WITCHES – LEGION UNIT
Sorcery has long been a valued talent among the Nyss, now doubly so among the Legion of Everblight. Before the coming of the dragon, the Ice Witches were the brutal sorceresses of isolated and feral shards of the deep mountains who now use the blight to augment their power. They are among the Nyss most eager for battle, reveling in unleashing their powers.
PIP 73100
MSRP: $24.99
PRIMUS JALAAM – SKORNE WARLOCK
The northern reaches of the Skorne Empire are a wild untamed place where beasts like the hydra and mammoth roam—only the fiercest of skorne prosper here. Among them is Primus Jalaam, one of the greatest hunters of his people, a cunning warlock who feels no shame killing his enemies at a distance. He is as effective stalking intelligent prey as are the beasts of his homeland.
PIP 74105
MSRP: $17.99
FARROW VALKYRIES – MINION UNIT
Determined, steadfast, and loyal, the farrow Valkyries make up the honor guard of the independent farrow warlock Helga the Conqueror. With hammer and cannon they beat back the Conqueror’s enemies, and with their shields and flesh they protect her from harm. When it serves Helga’s purposes, she has also been known to loan these prized warriors to her allies.

Warhammer Community – The Regimental Standard

Posted on December 13th, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

A new Regimental Standard post courtesy of Warhammer Community…

New post on The Regimental Standard

Top Tips for Winter Warfare

by The Warhammer Community Team

Attention, Guardsman!
You are about to be stationed on an ice world. Once the initial excitement of such an exotic locale* has worn off, you will need to accommodate for the adversity of your conditions. While your faith in the Emperor should burn with the heat and force of a neutron star in your breast at all times, alas, thermodynamics pays little respect to even the faithful man. There are other, more physical means that should suffice in preventing your early expiration due to cold,** and thankfully, Private Vladek Wroclaw of the Valhallan978th has volunteered to provide some from his long career with the Guard:
SnowPhoto

Greetings, fellow Guardsman. On ice worlds, cold is like the Archenemy – it doesn’t fight fair, it doesn’t sleep and if you don’t watch out for it, it’ll make your toes fall off. I’ve served with the Guard for nearly a decade now, and while I’ll never get my toes back***, I can at least help protect yours.
I’ve been told by my superiors that my original advice wasn’t acceptable, but was “offensive to both common decency and Adeptus Munitorum guidelines”. I realise now the error of my ways, and I’m happy to offer some things you should DEFINITELY NOT DO in cold conditions.
DO NOT hotwire the input ports on your spare lasgun ammo packs. This will damage the pack permanently and will not create a handy warmer that can also be used to cook a standard reconstituted egg ration.
DO NOT leave your carbohydrate ration inside a spare water canteen for two months with 2 millilitres of distilled promethium. Rather than preserve the ration, it’ll merely ferment into a strongly alcoholic beverage, which will need to be strained through a sock to be anywhere close to drinkable!
DO NOT “forget” to wear your hobnailed parade boots when on drill. While the cold will seep in through the steel toes and nails, and while the synthetic calfskin is about as protective against the weather as a line of conscripts against anything bigger than a grot,**** your faith in the Emperor will be certain to protect you against frostbite!
DO NOT offer your lho sticks ration for trade with Valhallan privates. The only useful information they have to offer you is better ways to praise the God-Emperor, and rumours of a “black-market” are obvious falsehoods designed to impugn the good name of our regiment!

Seems simple enough to follow, Guardsman! You would do well to emulate the faith and fortitude of your Valhallan brethren on the battlefield and off it.
* For further guidance, please consult Uplifting Pamphlet 7548//b “Why is the ceiling raining corpse ash and why are my fellow Guardsmen making morbid effigies out of it?” and 97 Other Common Questions Asked By Hive-born Guardsmen Assigned To Cold Temperature Biomes.
** And thus allowing you the glory of martyrdom later in the campaign.
*** Upon qualifying to officer rank, select regiments may appeal to the local Biologis Munitorum for bionic artificial phalanges and metatarsal replacements provided said toes were lost in suitably heroic endeavour.

The latest.’Call of Cthulhu’ RPG news from Chaosium…

#61 the straight scoop from the well of chaos…

Introducing the Miskatonic Repository

 

A new way for creators to publish and distribute their own original Call of Cthulhu content including scenarios, settings, spells and more!

Here’s how the Miskatonic Repository works – you create content, format it to our design template, and then upload the PDF to the site. Your work becomes part of the Miskatonic Repository content on DriveThruRPG – able to be accessed by the community and, optionally, providing a financial return to you.

Easy creation process

Chaosium has created easy-to-use style templates (in both MS Word and Adobe InDesign) and free Art Packs specifically created for the Miskatonic Repository to help you create your own content. You can create or source your own art and graphics as well.

Selling your work

Creators can make money from their published community content, or make it freely available – it is entirely up to you. (If you’re familiar with the existing community content for D&D, the Miskatonic Repository follows the same model in terms of revenue split and general rules).

A launching site for new talent

Todd Gardiner, Chaosium’s director of organized play said, “The Miskatonic Repository is an excellent way for budding Call of Cthulhu writers to unleash the terrors that lurk within them. As Organized Play grows in the Chaosium player community we’re really looking forward to seeing what products people self-start and release through the Community Content Program. It will be a launching site for writing talent we can use for collaboration in our ongoing OP efforts, and place we’ll be watching keenly for potential writers in our Call of Cthulhu line.”
We’ll be launching the Miskatonic Repository very soon, so keep your eyes out for the release and start creating!

Our Holiday Season Family Pack is R’lyeh Awesome!

This is our R’lyeh Awesome Holiday Season Family Pack – $39.90, with shipping only $4.70 anywhere in the United States.
Call of Cthulhu for Beginning ReadersKhan of Khans and Call of Cthulhu – The Coloring Book. A trio of Chaosium family fun these holidays… A great way to introduce your kids to the Mythos (and to Greg Stafford’s legendary universe Glorantha) – or perhaps your nieces and nephews: go on, be that beloved, exceedingly strange relative!
BTW – our fulfilment warehouse has advised that orders received earlier than December 14 should arrive by Christmas Day!

Lynne Hardy joins the Chaosium team as Call of Cthulhu assistant editor

Chaosium welcomes British RPG writer and editor Lynne Hardy as Assistant Editor for the Call of Cthulhu line. 
Lynne has extensive experience in the game industry, having worked as an editor and writer for Nightfall Games, Cubicle 7, Pelgrane Press, Green Ronin, and Modiphius Entertainment where she was line editor for the Achtung! Cthulhu line. She is also the designer of her own ENnie-nominated steampunk game: Cogs, Cakes & Swordsticks.
“I’m very pleased to have Lynne working with me on the Call of Cthulhu line”, said Call of Cthulhu line editor Mike Mason.“I’ve worked with Lynne on a number of projects, including the Masks of Nyarlathotep revision, and she brings an impressive array of skills and knowledge to bear, as well as a wealth of experience. All of which will stand her in good stead in supporting the development of our games and books.”
Alongside her editorial work, Lynne is putting the final touches to her new Call of Cthulhu campaign – The Children of Fear.

Chaosium Releases Art Submissions Guidelines

Chaosium releases are notable for their high quality art and cartography. At the 2017 ENnies, Chaosium releases won awards for Best Cover Art (gold), Best Interior Art (silver), Best Cartography (gold) and Best Production Values (gold), among others. 
We strive to maintain this award-winning standard across our product lines, working with artists from around the world. 
Artists interested in working on Chaosium projects can enquire through our new Art Submissions page:

Licensee Focus:

 

The new Kickstarter from our talented friend, the artist Delphes Desvoivres, is a beauty: an RPG sequel to HPL’s classic story The Call of Cthulhu.
It features a licensed Call of Cthulhu scenario by Matt Sanderson (Pulp Cthulhu, Two Headed Serpent, Grand Grimoire etc), deluxe paper hand outs, multimedia files by none other than the H.P. Lovecraft Historical Society, a bas relief, and a sculpture by Delphes that has a mini-speaker hidden inside to give the impression the creepy sounds come from the idol itself!
The campaign is already over 200% funded and has 15 days to go. Check it out

Licensee Focus:

 

If you missed their Kickstarter, our friends at Darker Hue Studios now have their HARLEM UNBOUND licensed sourcebook available for purchase in hardcover and digital from their online shop.
HARLEM UNBOUND takes Call of Cthulhu players into the exciting world of 1920’s NYC’s Harlem Renaissance at its height, to face terrifying horrors from the Lovecraftian Mythos. This groundbreaking tome gives Keepers and players everything they need to bring this unique place and time to life, and engage with the people who gave it its soul.
What is Ab Chaos?
(…from Ab Chaos #7, May 31 1992)

Ab – Latin “from”
Chaos – (1) Any condition or place of total disorder (modern vernacular); (2) the disordered state of unformed matter which preceded creation (since Milton, Paradise Lost); (3) the dark, empty space which preceded creation (Greek Mythology); (4) the [formerly] Californian roleplaying game company.

Ab Chaos is an informal newsletter for Chaosium fans. Through our history we have tried to serve the players and gamemasters through craft and art as well as (and sometimes at the expense of) marketing and moneymaking. We appreciate your loyalty, and offer this communication to those who are curious about us, beyond the mere “product”.

It is planned to be informal and irregular. We are, after all, not the Orderium.
