RIP Joe Dever, 1956-2016

As reported first here on RPGGeek by dysjunct in this thread, Joe Dever, author of the Lone Wolf Gamebooks has died. According to a report in the Guardian, Dever had been hospitalized since the end of October, due to complications from surgery performed earlier this year.

Lone Wolf and Magnamund were some of my first introductions to the world of roleplaying, and the Lone Wolf books remain some of the finest gamebooks every produced. In addition to his most famous work, Dever was also the author of the Freeway Warrior and Grey Star books, and more recently had served as a consultant on the new (and excellent) Lone Wolf Adventure Game. His contributions to the gaming world will be sorely missed, and frankly, the year 2016 can fuck right the hell off.

Almost into the last month of the year! What RPG items does everybody want for their holiday of choice?

Product Spotlight

I skipped the product spotlight last week, so I'm going to cover something here that had releases hit stores both then and now: Weird War I. To the best of my knowledge, this latest entry into the Weird War series was funded by a kickstarter back in March of this year, and is now finding its way out into the wild. Like all of the Weird Wars entries, this setting takes a historical event (in this case, World War I) and adds all sorts of weird twists. As this is for Savage Worlds, you should expect action-packed adventures - this is more Achtung! Cthulhu (without so much mythos) than Dulce et Decorum Est - but if you're in the mood for some pulpy Great War horror adventuring, this is definitely for you. In addition to the core books, which hit stores last week, Pinnacle Entertainment Group has released Weird War I: Raid on Fort Douaumont, which I think is the first standalone adventure for this setting, and takes the players into the maelstrom of one of the Western Front's deadliest battles. And into the bargain, you get a GM screen! (Source: Leisure Games)

New at your FLGS

If your superhero games need a touch of deep-space cosmic fun, Green Ronin Publishing has released the Cosmic Handbook for Mutants & Masterminds (3rd Edition). (Source: Noble Knight)

A holiday tradition from Goodman Games: the latest DCC holiday adventure, Twilight of the Solstice is so hot it's not in the database yet! There's also a Kickstarter going, which is (hopefully, in this case) just an ordering mechanism, as the holidays are gonna be here soon! (Source: Impressions)

This is almost certainly Kickstarter backer product, as Cubicle 7 Entertainment is still projecting a Spring 2017 release, but there are some copies of Heroes of Magnamund for the Lone Wolf Adventure Game out in the wild. (Source: Noble Knight)

Another GM screen, this one for Storm King's Thunder, the latest official D&D 5th edition adventure (speaking of which, anyone have that and want to review it? I've heard some good things...). This is courtesy of Gale Force 9, who are doing a lot (most?) of the official accessories this time around. (Source: Leisure Games)

Need more monsters in your Pathfinder Roleplaying Game? Purple Duck Games is here with Monsters of Porphyra 2, which brings 120 monsters to the table. (Source: Noble Knight)

Troll Lord Games continues to convert their Castles & Crusades modules to Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition). The latest is The Rising Knight, which I believe was out as a PDF last year, but is just now hitting stores as a physical product (Source: Impressions)

New PDFs and POD

This one looks kind of neat: Saturday Morning Tabletop is a hack of Dungeons & Dragons (5th Edition) that turns the power level up and gets weird and fantastical. From Infinite Roleplay. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

Are your Dungeon Crawl Classics games not weird enough? Then check out Hubris: A World of Visceral Adventure, new from DIY RPG Productions. I didn't see a "mature players" warning anywhere, but it sort of seems like it might need one. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

Cyberpunk games powered by the Apocalypse are all the rage right now. The latest offering is The Veil from Samjoko Publishing. (Source: DriveThruRPG)

Classic Dungeons & Dragons PDFs from Wizards of the Coast are: Elminster's Ecologies: Appendix I, Elminster's Ecologies: Appendix II, MC03: Monstrous Compendium (Volume Three) Forgotten Realms Appendix, MC11: Monstrous Compendium, Forgotten Realms Appendix and How the Mighty Are Fallen.

No product spotlight this week, as I was a little short on time (and this post got delayed anyway by my holiday travel plans). Things will return to normal next week, though! If you're celebrating, have a happy Thanksgiving!

And, as always, if you saw something I missed, let everyone know in the comments!

New at your FLGS

Paizo Publishing have been busy bees, dropping not one, not two, not three but four new releases for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. First up, we have Villain Codex, which if it is anything like the excellent NPC Codex, promises to be close to a must-have for Pathfinder DMs. Secondly, we have Seers of the Drowned City, an adventure module for 6th level characters featuring storms and seamonsters (this was a winner of Paizo's "RPG Superstar" contest). Thirdly, we have Blood of the Beast, a supplement for players that gives both fluff and crunch on seven beastly player races, including the nagaji and ratfolk. And finally, we have Horror Realms, a new campaign setting that provides a grounding for horror-themed campaigns, including locations, character options and a whole host of nightmarish adversaries. (Source: Alliance)

And another Pathfinder release that popped at a retailer before I saw it through a distributor: the latest installment of the Strange Aeons Adventure Path is Pathfinder #111: Dreams of the Yellow King, in which the players explore the Dreamlands and learn of a threat looming over Golarion. (Source: Noble Knight)

On a different fantasy tack, Goodman Games has released DCC #090: The Dread God Al-Khazadar, for Dungeon Crawl Classics Role Playing Game. (Source: Noble Knight)

Lovecraftesque, from Black Armada Games is a neat-looking GM-less game of cosmic horror. This has been floating around for a bit, but it should be in a store near you soon. (Source: Leisure Games)

Gotta get that horror-themed, WWI-flavored Savage Worlds game on: Weird War I: War Master's Handbook and Weird War I: Player's Guide, both from Pinnacle Entertainment Group are out now. (Source: Alliance)

New PDFs and POD

Kind of a quiet week on the PDF front, except for...

A whole bunch of classic Dungeons & Dragons PDFs from Wizards of the Coast. Are you ready? We've got: FRM1: The Jungles of Chult, The North: Guide to The Savage Frontier, Heroes' Lorebook, Fane of the Drow, FMA2: Endless Armies, Hammerfast: A Dwarven Outpost Adventure Site, Four From Cormyr and last but not least, TM4: The City of Waterdeep Trail Map.

Okay, so if you wanted to participate in one of the RPG Geek exchanges, today is your last chance!

The Cthanta Exchange and the TOSSRR exchange already ended, but it's okay, you can still get in the always joyous 2016 Tavern Christmas Card Exchange.

I've participated in all of them and this one is often the most fun and creative.

Don't miss this last change for an RPG Geek-related Christmas exchange this year.
