River Horse Reveals The Dark Crystal Adventure Game

The Dark Crystal Adventure Game

Fans of The Dark Crystal should get excited for 2021 as River Horse has announced that they are working on a new Dark Crystal roleplaying game. The release is part of their line of easy to play roleplaying games.

Once again, expect high production values in a book that will please both collectors and players alike. Stuffed full of adventure in the world of Jim Henson’s Dark Crystal – both the original film and the Age of Resistance series!

The adventure is being written by Janet Forbes of World Anvil and River Horse’s own Jack Caesar, who worked on both the Labyrinth Adventure Game and Tails of Equestria. Like the Labyrinth Adventure Game, The Dark Crystal Adventure Game will include a simple rules system and GM toolkit and a 100-scenes adventure, which can be played either with River Horse’s rules, or any other rule-set. 

The book is going to be full of illustrations by Brian Froud, Johnny Frazer-Allen, Chris Caesar, and others, and enriched with as many cool features like transparent pages, maps, foldouts, etc, as we can squeeze in…  

Coming to tables in 2021!

ALC Studios and Lynnvander have launched Terminator Genisys: Rise of the Resistance on Kickstarter.

Terminator Genisys: Rise of the Resistance is a cooperative tactical board game for 1-4 players where you play as the leaders of the Resistance, liberating humankind from the clutches of the machines.

Gipsy Danger Comes to Pacific Rim: Extinction

River Horse has announced that Gipsy Danger is being added for free to all “Extinction” pledge levels for Pacific Rim: Exctinction. The game currently has a Kickstarter campaign running and has already been funded.

Gipsy Danger stands at over 75mm tall and marks the first expansion to come from the first Pacific Rim film – and now you get her included in your pledge at no extra cost! She is included as a complete expansion, including Conn-Pod profile sheet, ranger cards and upgrades, so you’ve got everything to use her in game.

This means that the Extinction (£65) pledge level now includes the Core Set, complete with an array of stretch goal additions that include bonus 3D buildings, terrain tiles, and scenario/quick-play cards – Saber Athena Expansion Set and Hakuja Expansion Set plus free Gipsy Avenger Expansion Set. Bought separately this would cost £95.

The campaign ends April 4.

River Horse Brings Jaeger vs. Kaiju Action to Tabletops with Pacific Rim: Extinction

River Horse and Legendary Entertainment bring epic Jaeger vs. Kaiju action to your tabletop with an exciting miniatures game inspired by the upcoming film, Pacific Rim Uprising.

Pacific Rim: Extinction is a scenario driven, tabletop miniatures strategy game of city-wide destruction and chaos of epic proportions. The game features detailed and painted 75mm scale miniatures of the iconic Jaegers – mechanical guardians of humanity – and Kaiju – monsters the size of mountains sent from beyond our world – it captures the conflict of the Pacific Rim bringing epic battles to the table.

River Horse has also revealed two miniatures for the game, Gipsy Avenger and Shrikethorn.

Gipsy Avenger honors the heroic legacy of her namesake as the flagship leader of the Mark VI fleet. More than just a Jaeger, she is a symbol of hope to millions.

Erupting from the depths of the Pacific, the Kaiju have returned, and are more dangerous than ever. A category IV Kaiju, Shrikethorn can tear apart unwary opponents with its deadly tail spikes.

In Pacific Rim: Extinction, two or more players will be able to jump right into the action playing either a PPDC Jaeger or a monstrous Kaiju, in a quick play match of intense combat, or a more constructed battle with both Jaegers and Kaiju using all of their skills and abilities to achieve a challenging objective.

Pacific Rim: Extinction launches on Kickstarter at 1:00pm GMT / 8:00am ET / 05:00am PT on Monday March 12 2018.
