I am still wrapping my head around the D&D Rules Expansion Gift Set.

Three books, Xanathar’s Guide to Everything, Tasha's Caldron of Everything and Monsters of the Multiverse, in a slipcase. Makes sense so far.

Then, price tag 170 US dollars!! wth

I wouldn't be surprised if there are price hikes across the industry. I back a lot of RPG Kickstarters and I've been getting bombarded with messages about how fulfilment and pricing are being affected by a global paper and cardboard shortage, such that there might be rationing.

Odd to imagine a cardboard shortage given how much of the stuff Amazon sends me.

I recycle a 'container' (mostly) full of cardboard every 2 weeks. The 'boss' gets a lot of 'mail order' stuff <sigh>

I find it ... 'worrisome' ... that these sorts of problems are starting to 'manifest' :-/

Power Rangers RPG!?

I would love to have a flick through that! How do you convey Power Rangers combat in a tabletop RPG?

I miss having a local, well stocked FLGS. sad

Did anyone watch the 2017 Power Rangers movie? I was actually startled by how grown-up and well, good it was.

Thanks Argus! Huh, blank turns out it's a surprisingly generic system for a licenced Power Rangers RPG. You'd think it'd be more gimmicky, I guess.

Wizards of the Coast are owned by Hasbro. Hasbro also owns GI Joe. But they licence out the GI Joe RPG to Renegade Studios, instead of getting Wizards to make it. Bit weird.

I hope the GI Joe RPG doesn't use the same system as Renegade's Power Rangers. That was remarkably generic, no unique flavour, which makes me suspect they'll use it for all their RPGs.

I =suspect= that the problem is that Hasbro was working with Renegade before Hasbro purchased WOTC.

A good theory, MikeD, so I looked into it. Turns out Wizards was bought by Hasbro in 1999, whereas Renegade was founded in 2014. So Wizards came first, as it were.

Maybe Hasbro just wanted Wizards to focus on its core properties, D&D and Magic the Gathering?

WOW!! It was =THAT= long ago?? For some reason I was thinking it was a recent acquisition. But maybe that is more proof that my brain is going <sigh>

Oh and thanks for the info.




I might remember it for a day, maybe two <gd&r lmao>

Man, I saw the thing that said Deluxe Dice Bag: Skeletal Warrior from Steve Jackson Games and I thought for a moment that it was akin to the old Lost Worlds Fantasy Combat books.

Good times... loved that Skeleton with Scimitar and Shield.

It's actually... just a dice bag with a picture on it.

True. Though it is pretty sweet for a dice bag! Mine's really boring, navy blue. Only bought it recently too. Don't know what I was thinking. wha

Years ago I bought a chain mail dice bag with my initial on it in copper links. While it was very cool it was a bit of weight to lug around and didn't hold a ton of dice. So says the reformed dice hoarder. blush

I get the 'dice hording'. I bet I still have 100+ sets that 'looked good' in the dealers area <weg> But when I went 'to play' I seldom had more than 2 sets. Didn't want them thinking I didn't trust 'em <chuckle>

Whenever I see a new fantasy campaign setting I ask myself what its USP is, what sets it apart from the competition. So seeing Blue Rose, Green Ronin's campaign setting for D&D 5e, I delved deeper for all our sakes! jk

I found this handy primer on the setting.

https://greenronin.com/blog/2020/09/21/welcome-to-aldea/

And after reading it I can say I still don't know what Blue Rose's USP is. sad The primer makes it out to be an utterly generic, D&D fantasy world. Weird. Nice artwork though!

I don't know, Nem. The races sound like a departure of more traditional D&D worlds and a bit more leading towards self-actualization kind of storytelling. A bit less tethered to Earth/human assumptions of reality. More like an Ursula K. Le Guin campaign vs a Glen Cook campaign.

I have a hard time picturing a group "all meeting in a tavern" and "going off to fight goblins." grin
