TO for short, is a project which has been hit with problems, delays, and clicked for the Brexit, Shipping, COVID, and more. It’s a project that asked for £15,000 and managed to pull in over £182,000 at the time of closing.
We love Kickstarters here at Exiled News, in fact, we adore any third party funded projects in RPG a lot. Me, I am a big fan of magic, hence my latest build on Elden Ring playing with sorcery! Talking of magic though, this is a new project that could do with your help and a boost. There’s 14 days to go and the creators are looking for £4,287 to bring it to life. They have just raised (so far) £1,611 of the goal and really could do with a boost to that amount.
You can’t go more than a few books in the RPG industry without finding some amazing art, it’s true, these days many of the books have production values that various companies can only aspire to. I remember being blown away by the art in Cubicle 7’s previous edition of The One Ring RPG and this turned my attention to the work of Jonny Hodgson.
MP:MotM is the third and more interesting book of the three. There’s a huge buzz around D&D 5th at the moment, and honestly, when is there ever not? In that the system is due for some tweaks, changes, and a potential new but not new edition sometime in 2024…
Strixhaven: A Curriculum of Chaos is in the news again, and it’s not hard to see why. A lot of the talk around the book is hugely positive, but if you’re looking for a good eyes and hands onto the latest release coming in from the D&D WotC team, then EN World’s own Beth Rimmels has got you covered. Beth’s review is weighty and hits on all the major ups and down of the book in a clear and concise manner.

As we zero in on Friday, today is the day that I was thinking about a spotlight. What product, Kickstarter or thing could I shine a light on for Exiled News. I was having a conversation with a friend about various roleplaying games, and she suggested that I talk about three of them that I have been having fun with over the last few years.
Shotguns & Sorcery is a heady mix of high fantasy, and Mike Hammer style hardboiled noir. It’s packed with freelancers, and wizards, who skulk through the streets of the game’s setting – Dragon City – and explore the dangerous dungeons. They hang out in glowglobe illuminated speakeasies and swap tall tales of their exploits. The use pistols and wands, as well as other magic items.
