Teens in Space from Renegade Game Studios, Hunters Entertainment and Infectious Play Publishing

 Teens in Space

Renegade Game Studios has partnered with Hunters Entertainment and Infectious Play Publishing for a new roleplaying game. Teens In Space is landing everywhere in August 2019!

The game is designed and developed by Jonathan Gilmour and Doug Levandowski. The roleplaying game sets the stage as you and your group of friends venture into the cosmos for adventure and profit. Along the way, your crew’s bonds will be tested, your ship will malfunction, and you’ll probably get shot a few times. But that’s all in a day’s work for Teens in Space!

Player characters will take on the roles of adolescents of a variety of species at the age of nearly full maturity. Closing near their full physical and intellectual potential they lack experience and wisdom. You’ll travel the stars in a customized starship of your own design. Through your adventures, you may discover many things about the galaxy you inhabit. You’ll also discover more about yourself at this formative stage just before adulthood.

Teens in Space is an all-in-one 122-page full-colored book. It features art by Heather Vaughn and with sections for both players and GMs. The game is powered by the Kids on Bikes system. That creates a streamlined world-building and storytelling experience. This game is optimized for crews of 2-6 players aged 8+ with a dedicated storyteller at the helm.

Build Your Chain in Sovereign’s Chain. Coming Soon from WizKids

Sovereign’s Chain

WizKids has announced the upcoming release of Sovereign’s Chaina new, futuristic hand management card game!

In this 2-4 player game, players will seek to achieve the highest score by placing Class cards in their chain—a row of cards in front of them with a variety of abilities and numbered values. Each card is one of two suits, designated by either a Star or a Planet symbol in the upper left-hand corner. Players must end the game with the greatest difference between the total values of each of the suits in their chain.

Each turn, players must play a Class card from their hand into either their chain or the chain of an opponent. Class cards must always be played faceup (unless otherwise indicated) and adjacent right to the last card in the target chain. After resolving the card’s ability, they draw a new card and end their turn. There is no minimum or maximum hand size.

If a Class card’s ability results in a card being removed from a player’s chain, all remaining cards immediately shift to the left, reforming the chain and filling in the gap. When a card is discarded, it is placed facedown. If the draw pile is empty, the discard pile is shuffled and becomes the new draw pile. Certain Class cards allow players to take a Shield or Modifier token. These tokens can either modify the score of a target card (adding or subtracting 1 point to/from its value) or prevent a card from being targeted by another card’s abilities. The game also includes Suit tokens, which can alter the suit of the card they are placed on.

The game immediately ends when any player’s chain reaches 7 Class cards at the end of their turn. Players will then reveal 1 facedown card in their chain, and activate its abilities. This process continues with each player revealing 1 card until all facedown cards have been revealed. Scoring then begins, and players will calculate the difference between the total points granted by each suit, respectively. The player with the greatest difference wins the game! Sovereign’s Chain is coming soon!

During the game, you will be stacking dice to represent the construction of this monument, drawing cards from a story deck to create the escalating events in the city, and influencing the outcome of those events through actions driven by your characters’ motives. And when the dice tower finally falls, your civilization falls with it and the game comes to an end.

Free League’s Alien RPG is Up for Pre-Order with a Debut of the First Cinematic Module

The ALIEN Roleplaying Game Pre-Order Bundle

On May 25, 1979, Alien first graced the silver screen. Forty years after the Alien franchise first inspired and shocked the world, Free League Publishing has a xenomorphic surprise of their own in store. Quite literally.

For fans eager to explore that universe for themselves, they don’t need to wait any longer and can pre-order the Alien RPG Core Rulebook starting today!

In celebration of the official 40th Anniversary, Free League is offering a meaty 168-page Cinematic Starter Kit for their highly-anticipated Alien RPG – debuting their first Cinematic module Chariot of the Gods written by Alien RPG setting writer and sci-fi novelist Andrew E.C. Gaska – as a complimentary bonus gift for anyone who pre-orders the Alien RPG Core Rulebook. The Cinematic Starter Kit will be available for downloadas soon as the pre-order purchase is confirmed.

Based upon Free League’s award-winning Year Zero game engine, the full Alien RPG Core Rulebook contains 300+ pages of mythology, artwork, and custom mechanics for open-world campaigns and deep, diverse space explorations on the Frontier. While Campaign Mode provides the tools for long-term gameplay, Cinematic Mode challenges players to start and complete an accessible, authentic tabletop RPG experience in one game session with no prior preparation necessary. A streamlined version of the Year Zero engine, Cinematics deliver only the most crucial game rules for each scenario with pre-generated characters, stories, and challenges – capturing the intense drama of an Alien film.

Free League has big plans for Alien and their new Cinematic mode, which is why they’re sharing the Starter Kit months ahead of the Core Rulebook.

The Starter Kit isn’t the last Cinematic module that fans can expect from Free League. This is the first in a trilogy of Cinematic modules from Gaska.

Each Cinematic in the trilogy will explore a different style of gameplay, introducing a different perspective in the Alien universe and a different source of antagonism. Yet while each Cinematic module is designed as a stand-alone experience with new characters, settings, and challenges, the overarching narrative of the trilogy is connected – telling one complete, canonical story by the end.

As all characters aren’t likely to survive, Cinematics are engineered with death and replay value in mind, providing an ensemble cast of playable characters and branching narratives with multiple story paths and possible endings.

Free League will accept pre-orders for the Alien tabletop RPG Core Rulebook and a variety of limited-edition 40th Anniversary goodies and gear exclusively at the game’s site:

  • STANDARD EDITION includes the Alien RPG Core Rulebook in a hardcover format with approximately 300 full-color pages of beautiful artwork and complete game rules for both the Cinematic and long-term Campaign game modes. A PDF of the book is included. Price: $49.99

A PDF of the book is included. Price: $99.99 ($50 discount on the total retail price)
  • 40th ANNIVERSARY LIMITED-EDITION offers the Alien RPG Core Rulebook with a special commemorative book cover. Exclusive to this pre-order campaign, the 40th Anniversary Limited-Edition will never be printed again. A PDF of the book is included. Price: $89.99

  • THE COMPANY SPECIAL EDITION includes everything from the 40th Anniversary Limited-Edition Bundle, as well as signatures from the Free League team on both the commemorative cover and a Limited-Edition 27” X 40” poster of the Alien RPG cover art by Martin Grip. Price: $249.99

Fans can also customize their own package with individually priced add-ons.
