We have some news to share about our translated game lines - Yggdrasill, Qin, Kuro and Keltia.
We’ll be ceasing sale of these games at the end of June. We wanted to let you know now, so that you have an opportunity to buy anything you’ve been thinking of picking up.
However, take heart! We’re delighted to say that once our time as custodians of these games comes to an end, we’ll be handing over to le 7eme Cercle, who created these fine titles. And so in future English language versions of Yggdrasill, Qin, Kuro and Keltia will be available through them, along with any future supplements they translate.
So what happened?
Fans of our translated lines will be aware that progress has been painfully slow. Getting these titles translated for the English language market, at the quality we demand, has consistently proved a big challenge. We love all of these games - which is why we licensed them in the first place - but we have really struggled to find a workable solution.
We’ve been quietly trying to find a workflow that provides a reliable production schedule at a cost that can be recouped by sales. Despite our best efforts, and the efforts of several different line developers and teams, nothing has stuck. We’ve spent some time talking with le 7eme Cercle to identify the best way forward, and have decided that these great games should return to their creators.
We’ll be doing everything we can to help le 7eme Cercle hit the ground running, and we’ll be handing over all the unpublished material we have in hand. We all feel that this is the best way to look after the many fans of these games.
Le 7eme Cercle is the proper home for all of these great titles, and we wish them the very best in their mission to bring them into the English language!
We had a busy week on the blog last week, not only asking “what do you do?” in World War Cthulhu: Cold War and taking a look at how the new setting relates to World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour, but also releasing Keltia in stores and the latest supplement for Yggdrasill, Uppsala, for pre-order.
This week is even more action packed, as we’ve got a new PDF supplement for The Laundry RPG coming out as well as unveiling the cover for the next supplement for Kuro. We’ll also be continuing our delve into the background for World War Cthulhu: Cold War and taking a look at the other supplements we've got planned for it.
But that’s all for later in the week – what’s going on today?
Voting for the 2015 ENnies closes tomorrow, Tuesday 14th July. Cubicle 7 are nominated for four products, as well as fan-favourite publisher, and we’d really appreciate your vote! We’re up for Best Family Game (for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space Limited Edition), Best RPG-related Product (for Doctor Who: The Card Game 2nd Edition), Best Supplement (for The Fourth Doctor Sourcebook) and Best Free Product (for Arrowdown, for the Doctor Who RPG).
If you’ve not voted for us yet – you’ve still got time to do so here!
The latest Bundle of Holding is the Fantasy Frontiers collection, a bundle of fantastic fantasy roleplay settings. Amongst the PDFs included for a bargain price in the bundle is the Yggdrasill Core Rulebook – great timing if your curiosity about Norse adventure was sparked by the release of Uppsala last week!
Finally, there are just 8 days left to go for our latest Kickstarter project, World War Cthulhu: Cold War, and we’re closing in on our next stretch goal for a PDF set of handouts for use in your games. World War Cthulhu line developer Scott Dorward has been doing the rounds on the podcasts at the weekend, recording a special episode with The Good Friends of Jackson Elias, wherein he talks at great length about what makes the Cold War such a fascinating setting for Call of Cthulhu. Check it out here, and remember you can still pledge here.
With the release of Uppsala this week, Gamemasters not only found themselves with a complete guide to the eponymous city, but also with the next thrilling instalment in the Yggdrasill campaign. Ever since the Core Rulebook, the Yggdrasill campaign has been unfolding piece by piece in each supplement we release for the game – so today we thought we’d take a closer look at it!
Uppsala is a guide to the famous city of Uppsala, not only containing background and history for the city itself, new traits and spells, and a new adventure, but also the continuation of the epic Yggdrasill campaign. It is available to preorder at our webstore, and to buy in PDF format now.
And don't forget that the Yggdrasill Core Rulebook is in the current Bundle of Holding!
Yesterday we released Uppsala, our latest supplement for Yggdrasill. Today we're pleased to announce that the PDF version is now available at DriveThruRPG. This supplement is a guide to the famous city of Uppsala, not only containing background and history for the city itself, new traits and spells, and a new adventure, but also the continuation of the epic Yggdrasill campaign.

Yesterday we revealed the cover for the next Yggdrasill supplement, Uppsala, which will be available to pre-order soon.
But what is Yggdrasill? Well, it's our roleplaying game of exciting adventure in a mythical Scandinavia where the gods, monsters and worlds of Norse mythology are real, and in today's blog we thought we'd take a closer look.

Last week we released a free PDF for The Laundry RPG, disclosed more details about The SOE Handbook (for World War Cthulhu: The Darkest Hour), took a look at the layout for The Lone Wolf Adventure Game and delighted in the fact that two of our products have been nominated for an Origins Award.
Oh, and we also revealed that Keltia will be up for pre-order this week (tomorrow, in fact!), which means that we’ve got another busy week ahead of us as we saddle up and ride for Mythic Britain.
If you’re interest has been piqued in Keltia, you might also be interested in its sister game, Yggdrasill, a roleplaying game of Norse adventure that uses the same system, and is set at roughly the same time. In today’s post we take a fresh look at it and how you might use both games together...
Hitting the shelves of US gaming stores this week – The Seventh Doctor Sourcebook, Makkura and Kings of the Sea!
The Seventh Doctor Sourcebook is the latest in our line of supplements for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space covering the adventures of each incarnation; Makkura is an epic campaign for Kuro; and Kings of the Sea takes your Yggdrasill games across the waves in search of adventure!
It’s been a busy old couple of months here at Cubicle 7, what with our latest Kickstarter wrapping up and a whole bevy of new releases, so we thought it a good point to take a look back at some of our recent products up for pre-order now.
You can find all of our pre-orders over at our webstore – don’t forget that each pre-order comes with a complementary PDF too. We're a proud supporter of Bits & Mortar so you can also pre-order at your local games store and get the complementary PDF there too. Read more.
