Voting for the 2014 ENnies Awards is now open, and we’re delighted to have been nominated for three awards – as well as best publisher:

We’re also over the moon to have received a Judges’ Spotlight Award for the Rocket Age Roleplaying Game: thank you to Stacy Muth for picking us for it!

Today we're casting a little light on one of the nominated products: The Third Doctor Sourcebook for Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space.

The Third Doctor Sourcebook

3rd-doctor-sourcebook-cover

Celebrating the 50th anniversary year of Doctor Who, this Sourcebook explores the Third Doctor’s adventures on Earth and beyond. Written by Walt Ciechanowski and Graeme Walmsley, it contains detailed information on all the allies, enemies, aliens and gadgets that he encounters, as well as examining each of his adventures, the book contains a wealth of material for the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space RPG, and is also a fact-packed resource for fans of the show!

Exiled to Earth and prevented from travelling in time, the Doctor became UNIT’s scientific adviser and defended Earth against all manner of sinister threats! Face the plastic horror of the Autons, stop hordes of alien spiders and thwart the machinations of dangerous conspiracies! We’re running out of time, so quick - reverse the polarity of the neutron flow!

And above all, beware the Doctor’s ultimate nemesis - beware the Master!

The Third Doctor Sourcebook starts off with full backgrounds and character sheets for the Third Doctor and all of his companions, from Sarah Jane Smith to Jo Grant and Mike Smith. It also has a detailed look at how to make a Third Doctor adventure, examining the themes and tropes of this era.

The real meat of the book is in the detailed episode write-ups, each giving a thorough synopsis of what happened and then a lengthy discussion on how you might run it as an adventure in your own game, with stats for both the monsters and the major NPCs. There's loads of plot hooks too, so if your players have watched just as many episodes as you, you can still surprise them with new adventures!

You can check out a free sample of the episode write-up for The Day of the Daleks here, which gives you a flavour of how each of the episodes is handled.

GeekNative reviewed The Third Doctor Sourcebook here, so you don't just have to take our word for it!

We’re also over the moon to have received a Judges’ Spotlight Award for the Rocket Age Roleplaying Game: thank you to Stacy Muth for picking us for it!

Today we're casting a little light on two products: Lost City of the Ancients and the Rocket Age Core Rulebook.

Rocket Age

RocketAgeFontCoverweb

At this year's ENnies, Rocket Age received a Judges' Spotlight Award - and we couldn't be more delighted!

Rocket Age is set in a universe where, in 1931 Einstein, Tesla and Ray Armstrong, rode the first rocket ship to Mars, discovering that the solar system is populated by strange and wondrous alien peoples and adventure is never far away!

Discovering that they’re not alone in the galaxy, the nations of Earth race one another for the stars, sending out expeditions, embassies and invading armies to far-off worlds. There they discover all manner of alien life, from the stratified caste system of the Martians to the primitive, ape-like Venusians, from the degenerate Ioites and plant-like Ganymedians to the scheming of the Europans. The solar system is teeming with life – and danger!

Players take the role of whatever sort of heroes they want. There are thirteen playable intelligent species and sub-species in the Rocket Age Core Rulebook. What sort of game you play is up to you. Characters might be archaeologists on Mars, scientists exploring Venus, small time merchants running between the planets, or even members of the elite Rocket Rangers blasting off from one hot spot to another.

The Rocket Age Core Rulebook is the best place to start your adventures in the solar system. This book contains everything you need to blast off into a world of interplanetary adventure. The Rocket Age Core Rulebook is available in all good hobby stores now! If you don't have access to a hobby store you can order it on the Cubicle 7 webstore here.

Lost City of the Ancients

the-lost-city-of-the-ancients-cover400

The Lost City of the Ancients is a free introductory scenario for Rocket Age and is up for Best Free Product at the ENnies this year. Follow this link to download it now!

The discovery of an apparently intact Ancient Martian ruin deep in the Western Highlands has set potentially deadly events in motion. Such a find would draw treasure seekers and archaeologists from across Mars, but this one is even more of an attraction. It lies in territory unclaimed by any faction or nation. This makes it free for the taking and, despite the harshness of the Western Highlands, the need to travel through territory held by the Blue Chanari and the stiff competition, three other expeditions are already kitting out in the French held city-state of Kolpith.

The Lost City of the Ancients is a 30-page scenario with an additional PDF of pregenerated characters so you can blast off on your own Rocket Age adventure right away!
