March Updates

We're still struggling a little bit with the time change here, but we've had a few different things happen, and we wanted to share them with you.  

Science and Sea
Our second World of Morden Kickstarter ebook has now been released. Backers should already have a coupon in their inboxes, and the PDF is now available for everyone on DriveThruRPG.

Manreia did not suffer any battles within its borders during the Bane War, but the nation still suffered grievous losses. She sent many soldiers and vast stories of supplies to aid the Army of Light in its battles. Since the war ended and Manreia surrendered, she has had to struggle under the Witches' tyranny, living in a turmoil that even Manreian ingenuity cannot overcome.

Refugees who left Manreian camps often boarded ships that carried them to the islands of the Discordian Sea. Most met with disaster, but a few have managed to survive on one of the many islands. Their lives are little easier than the ones they left behind, but at least they are less likely to directly encounter banes.

Science and Sea provides additional information about the nation of Manreia and life on the Discordian Sea within Accursed's setting of Morden. It includes a broad range of different adventure hooks for GMs and players looking to explore these specific regions. It also introduces new banes as well as Hindrances and Edges specific to these cultures.

For anyone who didn't back the Kickstarter, the ebook is now available for $6 in PDF from DriveThruRPG.

Melior Via is currently participating in the DriveThru GM's day sale as well. All of our older products (IE, before Frost and Fang) are now 30% off.

The Dark Queen's Gambit

The Witchmarked heroes discover a village in the Outlands destroyed by banes harboring a lone survivor. They must uncover the cause of the damage, rescue any other survivors, and try to put a stop to the banes responsible. In the process, they may uncover a new plot that the Dark Queen, Hecate, has already put into motion.

Dark Queen's Gambit is a 1-Sheet style scenario that focuses on the adventures of a band of Witchmarked heroes in the Accursed game setting. The adventure may be played as a standalone, or it may be used with the Plot Point Campaign included in Accursed. The adventure features brief scene descriptionss, with necessary game mechanics and opportunity for tasks that can be resolved in a variety of ways. 
This ebook is now available for $1.25 in PDF from DriveThruRPG. It was written by Richard Woolcock of Savage-Stuff!

Luck Points

John recently started dabbling in the 5th edition of the world's oldest RPG. He wasn't entirely satisfied with one of the mechanics, and decided to provided an alternative to the Inspiration system. Luck points aren't anything revolutionary, but they're a different approach that offers a little more narrative control for both the the PCs and the GM. A brief PDF is freely available and all of the game content is available through the OGL for re-use.
