RPG News for December 4th 2009

I found a few newsworthy items I want to share with you guys:

  • Diaspora discount
    Perhaps you remember my post about Diaspora, the FATE-powered Hard-SF game. Fred Hicks now posted on his blog Deadly Fredly, that the game is finally back on Lulu and that every customer gets a 10% discount on Diaspora until end of December!
    So, what are your waiting for? The coupon code for the 10% discount is DIASPORA. Check out Fred’s blog or the publisher’s site for more details.
  • Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition support material
    Yesterday I read on Purple Pawn about FFG removing all support material for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay 2nd Edition as of today. I still could download everything (aside from the designer diaries and two preview PDFs, that didn’t interest me), and if you are still playing the 2nd edition, you should consider doing so, too, before the files are gone. I try to contact FFG and ask if they allow me to mirror the files on my site. If they give me permission, I will let you know.
  • Diaspora SRD
    Ok, this is actually not news, but I just found out about it: The authors of Diaspora have made their version of the FATE rules available as a System Reference Document. This allows you to create derivative material based on the Hard-SF game Diaspora that is powered by FATE. Alas the SRD is available in HTML only, but I am sure someone will create a more printer-friendly SRD in PDF sooner or later.
    You can access the SRD here.
