GM’s Day Sale on DriveThruRPG!

GM's Day Sale 2017 DriveThruRPG

The GM. We call them by many names: Gamemaster; Dungeon Master; Dragonmaster; Loremaster; MC; Navigator; friend; enemy; frenemy. They keep the games moving, usually downwards along with our HP, oversee the rules, and generally plot our demise. They are, at once, cruise director, narrator, evil mastermind, and the nucleus of our gaming atom. On March 4th each year, we honor these special individuals with GM’s Day, and the IGDN is helping the festivities by offering some of our favorite games at a nice, tidy discount. But you don’t need to be a GM to enjoy the savings! Here are just a few of our offerings this year.

GM's Day Sale 2017TAG Sessions has numerous games for sale and Tobie Abad’s excellent A Single Moment is right at the top of that list. This innovative RPG is about the flashing moment of a samurai duel, and is for two players.

Eloy Lasanta and Third Eye Games’ entire catalog is participating in the sale! Sins of the Father is one of his newest creations. It’s a game about “spiritual debt”, magic, and evil and uses an especially cool playing card-based resolution mechanic. Give it a look, along with all the other favorites like the AMP series and Ninja Crusade.

Have a look at Todd Crapper’s many games, including ScreenPlay. In this unique story game, you star as writers creating a great work together, developing characters, and telling tales. Based on this ruleset is the Ironbound setting, a dark fantasy game where you tell the story of magick hunters in an original world. Continue reading

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.
