The Cthulhu Britannica: London boxed set is the ultimate guide to running games of Call of Cthulhu set in London.
The One Ring Roleplaying Game™ is based on The Hobbit™ and The Lord of the Rings™ by J.R.R. Tolkien. Chock full of incredible artwork by leading artists, including John Howe and Jon Hodgson, and with rules designed by award-winning games designer Francesco Nepitello, there has never been a game based on Lord of the Rings more evocative of Tolkien’s unique vision. Along with rich and detailed background information, character types unique to the world, and a setting that changes as the Tale of Years progresses, when you play The One Ring Roleplaying Game™ you really feel like you are playing in Middle-earth™.
In Hobbit Tales players are Hobbits telling tales in front of a mug of beer at their favourite inn in the Shire. Silent woods and remote mountains, Elves, Goblins and Giants populate their stories.
During the game, players take turns as the Narrator and improvise a story using a hand of illustrated cards. The other players try to twist the tale, playing hazards and fearsome monsters. Drinks are served, smoke-rings are blown, and the best narrator is cheered by everyone present.
Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space is a roleplaying game set in the universe of the world’s longest-running science fiction show on TV: the BBC’s Doctor Who.
Take on the role of the Doctor (any one of his twelve incarnations!) and his companions (any one of them too – or you might make up your own one) and embark on your own adventures across time and space.
Or you might decide to make up your own Time Lord and their own companions too, and see what happens when they set off in their own TARDIS, or create a rag-tag bunch of time agents lost in time, or a UNIT base tasked with protecting their corner of the Earth.
With the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space roleplaying game, the power is in your hands! You can go anywhere or anywhen in the universe. It’s not going to be easy. It’ll probably be dangerous. The universe is a hostile place, full of Daleks, Zygons, Sontarans, Weeping Angels, Cybermen, Silence, Silurians and worse. There will be fear, heartbreak and excitement, but above all, it’ll be the trip of a lifetime.
In The Lone Wolf Adventure Game you are Kai Lords – brave and noble warrior-monks sworn to protect the realm of Sommerlund from the evil of the Darklords – adventuring across the world of Magnamund.

The game is playable right out of the box – you can be setting off on your first adventure within minutes of opening the box. The game is easy to learn too, the first adventure teaching you how to play.
As you grow in experience, additional features can be added in to give the game additional depth. There are a bunch of these included in the boxed set, and more will be included in forthcoming supplements. Experienced gamers can dive right in with all the options included, while new gamers can tailor the learning curve to their group.
