Iron Edda Accelerated is a new game by Tracy Barnett being released on March 5th! Look for it this week!

MAMS Gaming comes to TRF to teach us how to play a new system! This week it's Iron Edda Accelerated!

It's the end of the world as we know it, and that world seems pretty metal! Our brave, and sometimes drunk, heroes must go on a quest to retrieve the steel needed to protect their holdfast from impending disaster. There's just one problem, the holdfast really could have used better heroes.

GM: Mike G.
Players: Aser, Matt, Megan, Mike D.
System: Iron Edda Accelerated

Special thanks to our Agent+ patrons: Ben, Bernie, Chris, Denise, Eric, Fandible, Jonn, LordTentacle, Nyssa, Patrick, Stuart, Terryann, and Tom.

Jonathan Tweet, designer behind such iconic titles as Ars Magica, D&D 3.0 and 13th Age talks to us about a game near and dear to his heart that's being reborn for a new generation and kickstarting now.

"With simple, story-forward rules and an intense, edgy setting, Over the Edge broke new ground in roleplaying games. When it was released over twenty-five years ago, it influenced a generation of game designers and spawned countless campaigns on Al Amarja.

Today, we’re bringing Over the Edge back with a new vision, new era, and new stories. We want you to be a part of that effort.

Return to the island you only think you remember."

In this interview at the very beginning of Gencon, when you could still find Starfinder for sale at their booth, James Sutter from Paizo answered some questions about how the rules in this new science fantasy role-playing game have been simplified to speed up play. He also explains how starships have been integrated into the game, the level of backwards compatibility designed into the system and some of the evolutionary developments that led from Pathfinder to Starfinder. Lastly, he also doesn't not announce something you might be able to look forward to in before too long by way of an iconic adventure path.
