We are excited to bring you URBAN JUNGLE, a tabletop role-playing game set in early 20th century America. Inspired by lighter fare like Cats Don’t Dance and Scrooge McDuck, and the darker stories of Blacksad and Lackadaisy. this game makes you a player in a world of pulp-adventure, hard-boiled crime, and film noir. You’ll tangle with hardened gangsters, with jaded debutantes, with world-wear war veterans, and with all kinds of shady characters. Don’t let the long whiskers and the wagging tails fool you. A smile is just another way of baring teeth.
The continuing story of Rhys and Naril, two adventurers caught up in a mystery from the fringes of forgotten space. After destroying a cache of Syndic hardware, Rhys has been on the run with naught but remorse for abandoning Naril. But when galactic terrorists start using what certainly seems to be Syndic technology, Rhys finds himself thrown into a wild hunt to track down these villains before they can cause more mayhem. His adventure is packed with surprises, like alien drive-bys, suns going nova, and a film crew shooting a very peculiar documentary.
From the pen of Matt Howarth (Those Annoying Post Prothers, Konny & Czu, Transmetropolitan) comes another strange story from the Ten-Thousand Worlds. There’s still time to get exclusive rewards such as experimental music, obscure graphic novels, and custom artwork from Matt Howarth himself.

Based on Stan Sakai’s Eisner-award winning comic-book series, USAGI YOJIMBO: Fantasy Role-Play is a stand-alone game set in a fantastic version of Tokugawa-era Japan. While the warring states have been brought to peace under the watchful eyes of the Shogunate, danger still abounds in the form of greedy bandits, scheming warlords, and even the supernatural. But a house that heaps evil upon evil cannot stand …
Players take on the roles of brave samurai warriors, clever schemers, wise priests, and other heroes as they battle against the forces of corruption, despair, and evil in Sakai’s fantastic blend of historical and fantastical Japan. More that a source-book for the Usagi characters and stories, this game stands apart as a combination of story-telling and role-playing — where players work together to craft tales of heroism and drama. A unique system combines simple rules for complex results — even allowing characters to trade old abilities for new ones as the world changes with them. Play along side Usagi, Tomoe, Gennosuke as they fight Lord Hikiji and his minions … or create whole new stories of your own.
All profits from sales of this game go directly to Stan Sakai, creator and artist of USAGI YOJIMBO.
Our top-tier chronological scientists have been working round the clock to … round out the clock, as it were. While these discrepancies in the calendar are mostly undetectable to lay-persons, factors such as the rotation in the earth and variations in the chip-sets of smart watches have made it necessary to alter the fabric of time itself, and to pass the savings onto you.
Secondly, our scientists have determined that even though the record sales of Ironclaw merchandise at Anthrocon this month might look like good news … the growing demand started a “butterfly chain” that will cause an “eschatonic apocalypse” which has “levels of alarmism beyond all comprehension.” We urge you to not travel back in time to shoot your own grandfather. Don’t get mad at him, things were different then. Instead, you can click on this link to order the Ironclaw Omnibus at reduced pricing, just like those salad days of yore.
These sales will only last until July 31st, so act quickly. With your help, we can make a better tomorrow before it even happens. Thank you.

Myriad Song is Sanguine’s game of role-play in the far-off vistas of an unknowable universe. The mysterious Syndics plucked thousands of species from their homes, raised them for some untold purpose, and then abandoned them to the ten-thousand planets of the void. What secrets were left behind, and what is to happen to these orphans of the stars?
Our Aliens book will get even stranger! Meet the multi-limbed, horned Drozan, who would rather live free and alone in the fallen worlds than serve any master or state. Or consider their opposite, the aggressive Serkai, whose snaky, chitinous bodies house a keen and planning mind, as they ruthlessly work to take the Myriad, by negotiation or by force. Deep in the lightless caves underneath many a planet’s surface, the Moceri creep about, thriving in the dark where other blind aliens would fear to go . And what of the Ghen’ti, who are gradually evolving into a xenharmonic strangeness that only the Syndics could know?
