Kickstarter Cover

OGH is a complete, new game from Green Fairy Games, makers of Fae Noir.

Of Gods & Heroes is inspired by mythology – the action movies of the ancient world. We’ve created a system that encourages stories with the same over-the-top coolness and creativity that is embodied in the most ancient storytelling traditions. The focus is on empowering GMs and players to build their own epic – a story unique to their larger-than-life characters, whether your campaign is set in ancient Greece, Viking-era Norway, the height of the Aztec empire, or in a post-apocalypse where the gods have returned.

arm-wrestlingExciting combat is backed by a robust social conflict system and flexible magic.

The system is “rules-medium” with a core d6 dice pool mechanic and consistent, modular sub-mechanics that all support exciting stories and an emphasis on player agency and fun.

The OGH Kickstarter will run through May 18th, but some rewards are limited, so check it out today!

THE TENTACLE CAT RETURNS…

Announcing the release of

Call of Catthulhu Deluxe, Book I: THE NEKONOMIKON.

CoCAT-I-Cover

At GENCON 2013, veteran gamesmith Joel Sparks introduced a five-dollar, 24-page booklet titled CALL OF CATTHULHU. The featherweight RPG allows players to become ordinary cats who must oppose the Lovecraftian plots of chaotic Animal Cults bent on destroying the comforts of human civilization. A surprise hit, Catthulhu sold out at Gencon, then again at Baltimore Comic-Con, NecronomiCON Providence, and Spiel Essen in Germany.

In November, Sparks ran a Kickstarter to develop a greatly expanded “deluxe” edition, and the project funded at over $40,000: 2,000% of the original budget. Stretch goals unlocked include a Boxed Set crammed with extras and the appearance of backers’ real-life pets as illustrated heroes and monsters in the Deluxe rule books.

Months of work later, the first element of Call of Catthulhu Deluxe is unveiled this weekend at AwesomeCon DC: THE NEKONOMIKON (The Book of Cats). This full-color volume contains everything needed to play Call of Catthulhu, from 30 different types of cat characters to Dire Challenges, Scrapping, and Brushes with Death.

Book II: UNAUSSPRECHLICHEN KATZEN (The Cat Herder’s Guide) will appear in May, with more about gods, cults, adventures, and Things Cats Were Not Meant to Know. The complete CALL OF CATTHULHU DELUXE ships first to Kickstarter backers, and will be available to everyone at Origins 2014, June 11-15. Learn more at Catthulhu.com.
