Atlas Games releases Fiasco Playbooks set in Ars Magica
Ars Magica line editor recently retired from that position, but it certainly doesn’t appear that Atlas Games’ tabletop RPG set in a mythical European setting where myths and magic are real is going anywhere any time soon. In fact, just last week Atlas Games released Fiasco Playbooks (for free, no less) set in Ars Magica’s world. There are two playbooks, both designed by Will Hindmarch and one features grogs (warriors tasked with dealing with mundane threats to the wizards) and one centered around a group of magi. Having looked through them, I will say that some knowledge of Ars Magica would probably be helpful. But, good news, there is a Bundle of Holding going on right now featuring Ars Magica 5th Edition or you can actually get the 4th Edition for free.
Post-Apocalyptic Adventure Dustbowl Released on Steam
I have heard nothing of Dustbowl before I saw it as a new release on Steam. I haven’t played it, but it certainly looks like something that I will grab at some point. A post-apocalyptic adventure game, Dustbowl requires the player to find supplies to survive as they explore the game’s world made up of more than 50 locations. Dustbowl does feature random encounters, but it also promises “[a] huge main quest line that takes the player across the blistering wastelands.” Dustbowl is available now on Steam for $8.09 and is regularly priced at $8.99. It’s clearly doing something different, and that piques my interest.
