Given the changes in my life with the upcoming kid (very soon now!) I’m looking at how I’ll be working some gaming into my schedule. At the moment I don’t really see myself running long campaigns just yet, which makes me more than a little sad. However, it does open up the possibility of running all sorts of one-shot using game systems that I’ve not really had the opportunity to try.

Foremost among these would be Kuro and Numenera, two games that I’ve been very impressed with but have not had time to run. Also on this list is Fantasy Craft, and once I’ve read up on the novels again, the Mistborn Adventure Game. I’ve a few other games in mind as well, with an eye towards supers gaming (so AMP: Year One might see some time in my gaming table as well!)

That’s it for now, I can’t pin things down with specifics just yet, but I’m honestly a little glad to have been given a bit of a break from running games every weekend. I can almost feel my brain decompressing and soaking up new stuff to inspire games in the future. I really ought to take longer breaks more often.

CFG07003-Terris_Wrought_of_Copper-Sales_Page

I’m one of those guys who had it backwards. I’d purchased a copy of the Mistborn Adventure Game from Crafty Games even before I got to read the Novels, and I enjoyed it even before I came to appreciate the full extent of Brandon Sanderson’s unique fantasy setting. Thankfully I’d gone and bought the entire series and read them like a man possessed.

It’s with great excitement that I bring up the fact that the Mistborn Adventure Game’s first supplement, Terris: Wrought of Copper is now available for purchase. Here’s the description from Crafty Games:

The remote lands of the Terris Dominance are the oldest and most mysterious region of Scadrial, predating the Final Empire itself. For over a thousand years, the proud Terris people have endured brutal systematic oppression by the Lord Ruler, guided and counseled by the shadowy Keepers and protected by their unique power of Feruchemy. But why have they survived, and what is their plan? There’s always another secret…
Terris: Wrought of Copper is an essential supplement for the Mistborn Adventure Game, designed for players, Narrators, and fans of the Mistborn novels. Developed in cooperation with Brandon Sanderson, this guide expands the canon of the novels, providing a detailed look at the history of the Terris Dominance and its people. Inside you’ll find a guide to the city of Tathingdwen, the heart of Terris society, as well as an exploration of both the secretive Terris Synod and the nascent Terris Resistance, plus all-new insights into the awesome power of Feruchemy.
For players of the Mistborn Adventure Game, there’s a bevy of new rules for creating and playing your own Terris Hero, including new Stunts, equipment, metalminds, and a new ability: Networks!
Also included is an epic adventureJustice, like Ash, which sweeps your Crew into events that shake the Final Empire to its very foundations! A powerful Obligator has been murdered, a Terrisman stands accused as the killer, and it’s up to you to uncover the truth. Your hunt will take you from the paved streets of Luthadel to the ancient cobblestones of Tathingdwen and the farthest reaches of the Terris Dominance. Can you catch the culprit before the Lord Ruler’s wrath is unleashed across Terris? The fate of an entire people rests on your shoulders…
Both PDF and Physical books are available in the Crafty Games sale page at a reasonable $12.95 for PDF and $24.95 for Print, as well as a bundle including both for $29.95

 


Today we’re looking at the best games you ought to have with a focus on the excellent RPGs from Crafty Games. Crafty Games have been hard at work churning out some of the most well designed work in the industry. While they may fall on the crunchier side of rules complexity, reading their games is like looking into the inner workings of a wristwatch. Even the tiniest of parts contributes to the greater whole.

Spycraft 2.0, Second Printing

Spycraft was the game that put Crafty Games on the map. If you’re looking for a ruleset that can run any modern-day action / espionage game then your search stops here. Excellent mechanics with an eye towards simulating your favorite techno-thriller / espionage tales make this a solid addition to any GM’s collection of games.

Mistborn Adventure Game

Based on the best-selling novels by Brandon Sanderson, the Mistborn Adventure Game shows that Crafty Games can do “rules light” without losing their touch. Weighing in at an impressive 585 pages, the Mistborn Adventure Game is full of information for fans of the novel and has all the rules you need to run a crew in the ash-covered world of Scadrial.

Fantasy Craft Adventure Companion

If you haven’t checked out Fantasy Craft by now, you have no idea what you’ve been missing. More than a D&D clone, Fantasy Craft offers a toolkit approach to heroic fantasy that can go from swords & sorcery to wuxia in one book. The Adventure companion expands the already formidable corebook with three new settings and a ton of new character options to make Fantasy Craft even broader.


For all of us who are eagerly awaiting our copies, Patrick Kapera of Crafty-Games has put up an unboxing video being done by Alex Flagg of the softcover version of the Misborn Adventure Game for us to see. The books definitely look good, can’t wait to get my hardcover copy! Check out the video below!
