Hunters Gathering: Dec. 2019
Late for a Reason! Hey everyone, we absolutely know this post is coming a little late this month, but there is admittedly some intention to that this time. Over the period this would have normally dropped the team was out and making some big announcements. We'll talk about that a bit more in the main section of the post. Keeping with tradition, however, here is a little reminder to come connect up with the team and community on our official social pages:
Werewolf: The Apocalypse!
If you happened to miss the news over the weekend, we announced that we've partnered with Paradox Interactive to bring Werewolf: The Apocalypse 5th Edition to gaming tables the world over with distribution by our partners at Renegade Game Studios! You can check out the official press release here, and we even put together a little teaser trailer for the announcement that you can check out right now:
If it wasn't immediately obvious, we at Hunters Entertainment are wildly excited to have the opportunity to bring such a beloved and deeply important property into the present day! We know just how profound this game is because the World of Darkness has made an impact on each of us through our lives and gaming careers. Even a few days after the announcement we were getting tons of messages of excitement and anticipation for the new edition, and we're quite humbled by your support and welcome you onto the path to save Gaia with us moving forward.
We know that you're all practically salivating and chomping at the bit for more information and details, and we promise you that they will be coming. For right now we're taking everything in and absorbing all that the community has to say about the announcement, and what expectations you all have of which there are many. Be sure to drop into our community Discord Server where we've setup a channel just for W5!
Outbreak: Undead.. 2nd Edition Annual Vol. 1!
With all of the spectacle of our big announcement at the show it is possible you might have missed that we also dropped the latest content for Outbreak: Undead.. - our very first Annual for the 2nd Edition. This collection features all of the releases from the Free Content Friday run for 2018-2019, adds in some new bits of art in a few places, and comes with the option to pick up in Print on Demand meaning you can have a physical copy to add to your gaming shelves (though you can also pick it up in PDF).
While the content included is the same content you will have been able to acquire for free over the course of out FCF run, once the new run kicks off in January this will become the only means to continue getting this content. In addition, proceeds raised from the sales of the Annual go to supporting future FCF content runs and helps us to keep the program running.
So don't delay, follow this link and pickup your copy of the Outbreak: Undead.. 2nd Edition Annual Vol. 1 today!
Icarus Back in Print!
We know there were many who were disappointed when Icarus was announced to be sold out, feeling like you had missed out on your opportunity. Well we're very pleased to share about a reprint of the line to get it back available once again! You'll have your chance to pick it up once more.
If you just can't wait to get your hands on it, you can swing over to DriveThruRPG now and grab a digital copy today! With details on how to use regular D6 and a standard deck of playing cards you can get to telling the tale of how your great civilization falls right away (you can even order a set of print on demand cards for the game).
PAX Unplugged 2019 Recap!
Now to close things out, since we just ran down some pretty big things, it seems appropriate to have a nice relaxing recap of this year's PAX Unplugged. We had such an amazing time once again this year, and it was so nice getting a chance to chat with so many of our fans over the weekend. Not only that, but our official game sessions were nearly always overbooked (we're super sorry if we weren't able to get you in to a session over the weekend - we did our best to accommodate and even had some of our GMs run extra pickup sessions as far as we were able). Product was rolling off the shelves in the booth, with a few items selling out over the course of the show and the rest being down to the last of the stock we had brought out.
It is hard to think that words can really do this all justice, so maybe take a moment to check out some of the great shots we gathered up at the convention, relive some of the experience, and help us say farewell to 2019 as only gamers can!
What an absolutely amazing year this has been! We know we said back in 2018 that there was a ton of cool stuff in store, and we certainly hope we haven't let you down on that mark. With that in mind, it seems already safe to say that things aren't going to be slowing down any time soon - quite the contrary, actually - and we're thrilled to have you keep on pressing forward with us. Your support means the world, and without all of you we wouldn't be doing the things we love so much today - thanks so much and we'll see you in 2020!
