For MACE West 2018, Roaring Creek Games will be attending demoing their new game Sabatu.  See OGRe for their demos. Help us give them a warm MACE West  welcome.  You must be registered for MACE West 2018 to participate.

The company was started in 2013 by Richard and Dawn Savidge with the help of Michael and Elizabeth Smith.  Roaring Creek Games strives to produce games that build player relationships and are suitable for all ages. Roaring Creek Games first release is the beautifully laser engraved Deluxe Edition of Sabatu available in both leather and wood.

About Sabatu

Theme and Victory Conditions: Sabatu is a light strategy game of conquest set in Ancient Civilizations. There are two ways to win a game of Sabatu. You can employ a strategy of speed and be the first player to seize any 3 Capitals and to occupy all 3 of them at the same time. Or you can be the first player to build four Walls around one Capital. The first player to successfully implement either one of these strategies and is able to hold it until the beginning of their next turn is declared Conqueror of the Known World or as Sargon King of Akkad called himself Sarru-kinu, “The Rightful King”.

Gameplay:

  1. A player must begin their turn by drawing one Conquest card and immediately following the instructions on the card.
  2. The player then rolls 2 dice (3 if using all 9 regions), unless otherwise instructed by the Conquest card, or uses Spoils coins to move around the board toward their objectives.
  3. When landing on designated spaces such as “Spoils” or “Armory” draw one tile from the appropriate bag. If landing on a “Destiny” space draw one Destiny card and immediately follow the instructions.
  4. Position your troops, buy Walls, trade, do battle if you wish or build your forces and supplies. It’s up to you.
  5. When you are done pass the dice to the next player, signaling that your turn is done.

Battles: When attempting to occupy the same space already held by another player on the board or when attacking an opponent’s Capital, the 2 Armies must fight a battle. After each player decides which armor or weapons they will use the players each roll one die and the numbers on the Armory tiles are added to the roll of the die. The Army with the highest total amount is victorious. In the event of a tie, the attacker has the option of continuing the attack or retreat. If discretion is the better part of valor and retreat is the desired course of action then the attacker rolls 1 die and moves away from the defender the number of spaces indicated by the die. As long as a Capital has one or more walls any army within the walls has a 1 point advantage when fighting a battle, in addition to any Armory tile the defender may wish to play.

No player is eliminated from the game. If a player’s Armies have all been eliminated from the game, that player begins his/her next turn with a new Army at Home.

Grand Championship!


In I Drank What?, it is the party of the year, and all your worst enemies have been invited. You have brought along a bottle of poison to help spice the evening up. Funny, so did all the other guests. With all the witty banter and bumbling of the staff, you have lost track of which glasses of wine were poisoned.

The only thing certain is that someone is going to die, and the survivors will have a good laugh. It’s all in good fun, so long as you have the last one. So propose a toast, and drink as if there were no tomorrow, because, for you, tomorrow may never come.

I Drank What? is the fast and furiously funny card game of poison toasts and split-second treachery. It’s a wine tasting to die for…

Game Play
Each player has a card representing a glass of wine, face down in front of them; one of these glasses is poisoned. Eventually, everyone will have to take a drink, and someone will die. The last person left alive in the party wins.

MACE West 2018: The Monster Hunters’ Club RPG for Savage Worlds

A new RPG setting for Savage Worlds, The Monster Hunters’ Club, will premier at MACE West 2018.  Saturday and Sunday Morning, Brandi Greene will run a  series of adventures simpel called Scenario A and B.

The Monster Hunters’ Club is a licensed setting for the Savage Worlds Roleplaying Game set in the 1980s and inspired by kids’ adventure and horror films, television, and novels like E.T. The Extra-TerrestrialThe GooniesThe Monster SquadThe Lost BoysFright Night, ItSuper 8Stranger Things, and many more. Players take on the roles of children, growing up in the 80s, who become heroes. The Monster Hunters’ Club is an officially licensed Savage Worlds product, and requires the Savage Worlds Deluxe Core Rules to play.

A preview of The Monster Hunters’ Club is available on DriveThruRPG. Please click on the link in the text, or click on the Preview button above to download our FREE preview from DriveThruRPG.

The Game!

Something strange is happening in the town of Gulf Haven. Horrible creatures are coming to life. The adults seem blind to the entire thing. It’s up to you to find out what is happening, and stop it before it’s too late!

Growing up in the 1980s…

You’ve got Saturday morning cartoons, a tree fort, a boombox, a fast bike, and oh…

Monsters are real.

You heard me.

Don’t bother telling your parents. Grown-ups can’t see ‘em. When something gets smashed up, they blame us. When somebody goes missing, they blame someone from out of town, or maybe the Russians. The monsters are real though, and it’s up to us to do something about it.

That’s right, between babysitting your little sister, dodging bullies like Scotty Mangrum, and surviving middle school, you also have to figure out how to fix the monster problem.

You can’t phone home, and there’s nobody you can call. It’s up to you to save the town, and maybe even the world!

About Star Wars: X-Wing

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game is a tactical ship-to-ship combat game in which players take control of powerful Rebel X-wings and nimble Imperial TIE fighters, facing them against each other in fast-paced space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, the X-Wing Miniatures Game recreates exciting Star Wars space combat throughout its several included scenarios. Select your crew, plan your maneuvers, and complete your mission!  Whatever your chosen vessel, the rules of X-Wing facilitate fast and visceral gameplay that puts you in the middle of Star Wars fiercest firefights. Each ship type has its own unique piloting dial, which is used to secretly select a speed and maneuver each turn. After planning maneuvers, each ship`s dial is revealed and executed (starting with the lowest skilled pilot). So whether you rush headlong toward your enemy showering his forward deflectors in laser fire, or dance away from him as you attempt to acquire a targeting lock, you`ll be in total control throughout all the tense dogfighting action.  Star Wars: X-Wing features a number of unique missions, and each has its own set of victory conditions; with such a broad selection of missions, only clever and versatile pilots employing a range of tactics will emerge victorious. What`s more, no mission will ever play the same way twice, thanks to a range of customization options, varied maneuvers, and possible combat outcomes. Damage, for example, is determined through dice and applied in the form of a shuffled Damage Deck. Each time your fighter sustains a hit, you`ll draw a card that assigns a special handicap. Was your targeting computer damaged, affecting your ability to acquire a lock on the enemy? Perhaps an ill-timed weapon malfunction will limit your offensive capabilities. Or worse yet, your pilot could be injured, compromising his ability to focus on the life-and-death struggle in which he is engaged…  The Star Wars: X-Wing starter set includes everything you need to begin your battles, such as scenarios, cards, and fully assembled and painted ships. What`s more, Star Wars: X-Wing`s quick-to-learn ruleset establishes the foundation for a system that can be expanded with your favorite ships and characters from the Star Wars universe.

MACE West 2018: Savage Kingdoms, Reforged, with game creator Mike Yow

Mike Yow will be joining us at MACE West 2018 to run his fantasy RPG, Savage Kingdoms.  Hew will be running not only his new Savage Kingdoms, Reforged (recently Kickstarted)  but also his D&D 5th edition version.

Friday 8 pm 

Savage Kingdoms: Reforged

The Blood Crown

In the winter-kingdom of Mulovia, life and death are separated by the thinnest of veils and the acquisition of power is only secondary to survival. Noble houses squabble with each other, often openly, while King Vortimir grins darkly from his throne. But rumors now surface that the once-hidden tomb of the First King of Mulovia has been discovered, along with the possible burial-place of his most prized possession – the Blood Crown. “Through water, stone, and iron one must pass” say the gypsy-seers. The Blood Crown uses the ‘Savage Kingdoms: Reforged’ heroic sword-and-sorcery RPG system and its grim and gritty setting, which utilizes by a single d20 roll for all narrative action resolutions. Local Asheville actor and dabbling game designer, Mike Yow, is the game’s author and will serve as Game Master for the event.

Saturday 2 pm

D&D 5e: Savage Kingdoms

Shadows In The Sand

In the deep desert, no one can hear you scream. Zaramahd, the great Eastern empire, is predominated by the Sea of Sand. Here, desert tribes loyal and non-loyal to Emperor Al-Shadar’s vast realm dwell, and worse still, endless dunes and a siroccos plague the expansive wastes separating the great bejeweled cities. It is somewhere in this no-man’s land where you awakne, hearing little more than the trotting of sand-muffled feet and the terrible jangle of chains. In your blurred vision, a masked face glances at you, but you are unsure as to just who – or what – it is. Or how many. Shadows In The Sand uses the Savage Kingdoms grim and gritty setting, but via the D&D 5e rules system. This is a playtest of some of the new races, classes, and other materials that might see publication at some future date. It is designed by Mike Yow, local Asheville actor and author of the ‘Savage Kingdoms: Reforged’ heroic sword-and-sorcery RPG.

Saturday 8 pm

Savage Kingdoms OR D&D 5e

Sea of Ghosts

Just north of Tyrius, great city of the southern-most province of the Lorinthian Empire, an ancient temple has been unearthed. Several local noble families claim this area as ancestral land, but none know for certain. After further excavation and political scheming, a band of heroes are hired to explore the subterranean structure and report on what it is discovered. But mysterious and ancient sorceries may lie in waiting, and what was once an underground quest could soon lead to an epic voyage across the sea. Sea of Ghosts will utilize either the Savage Kingdoms: Reforged heroic sword-and-sorcery RPG rules OR the D&D 5e rules set, depending on majority player vote. Local Asheville actor Mike Yow is the creator and author of the Savage Kingdoms game system and setting (this setting will also be used if the 5e rules are elected).


About Savage Kingdoms

Savage Kingdoms is the brain child of Mike Yow, a long-time RPGer, dabbling game designer, and professional actor. First published in 2014, Savage Kingdoms: Reforged – this current project – is a full-color reimagining of not only the core rulebook, but the entire game line to come. In addition to full interior color and more artwork, the rules system has been tweaked and tightened up a bit, though perhaps not quite enough to warrant the moniker of “2nd Edition”.

-Duchess Lytena of Filbar, IR 487 (A quote from the Royal Book of Filbarian History)

Hi, welcome to Adventures in Filbar! We are a small, independent company that makes adventures and settings from our various homebrew campaigns. Our mission is to provide you with inexpensive and enjoyable options for your own campaign. While we certainly invite you to try our campaigns, we have made them general enough to pop into your own campaigns.

Our adventures are primarily written under 1st/2nd edition and 5th edition rules. We have tried to categorize our offerings by lettering as well as color (recently). The original ruleset are listed under the F, FN, FP, FQ, FD, FO, FA, and FS series. The others are made for the most recent (5th) style. Minor modifications can be done to convert the adventures to either edition for your enjoyment! The color scheme is new but we have been trying to set them as follows:

Grey-free offering
Yellow-lower level (1st-3rd)
Red-mid level (4th-6th)
Blue/Green-higher levels
Purple-very high levels
We appreciate your feedback and reviews as we actively seek to improve our products. Feel free to reach out to us at Twitter @FilbarRPG and get advanced notice on sales and special offers!

 

 

MACE West 2018: Asheville Historical Wargamers!

The Ashville Historical Wargamers will be running a wide array of miniature war games.  They are on the OGRe where you can register for them.  You must be registered for MACE West to participate.  The games they are running include the following…

 

Friday 2:00-6:00pm

Command Decision: Test of Battle

Battle of Sened Station

January 1943. A U.S. attack on an Italian-German position goes slightly wrong when one of the American infantry units gets lost getting into position.

Friday 8:00-12:00am

Star Wars Armada

Live Fire Exercise

At a small, secluded base the Imperial Navy is testing its newest and deadliest Starfighter – the TIE Defender. Intended by Sienar Fleet Systems to be the top-end of a HI-LO mix of the TIE series, the TIE Defender is being put through its paces by Imperial pilots prior to authorizing full series production.

Rebel spies have determined that the Imperials are testing a new Starfighter and an Alliance task force jumps in to disrupt the tests and gain intelligence regarding the rumored fighter. A small Imperial carrier force responds to the base commander’s cries for support as the TIE Defender pilots don their flight suits for more realistic testing than they had expected.

Saturday 9:00-1:00

Fierce Tempest (Homebrew)

Operation Sealion 1940.

First week of Operation Sealion. German recon units reach Woking south west of London. Waiting for them are Dad’s Army (home guard), a bunch of locals, and some Dunkirk returnees. A tactical game with a bit of humor…” Sir, I told you we should have closed the pub.”

Saturday 2:00-6:00

Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures

Wolfpack Against a Bear

A small rebel task force has raided an Imperial base that is running trials of the Empire’s new TIE Defender Starfighter.  A Rebel CR-90 Corvette from the task force and its escorts attempt to flee the battle, but they are stalked by the new Starfighters as the Imperial pilots look to test their TIE Defenders in combat.

Saturday 8:00-12:00

Actions Stations, Captains!
