Free Product of the Week
Cats understand the magical power of names.
A decapitated mouse left on the doorstep or pillow is a powerful ward, and a spell wailed by the cat chorus confers even greater protection. When evil is on the rise and the safety of the neighbourhood is at stake, the Parliament of Cats is there to stand firm against the darkness.
Take Silver Ford, for example—a sleepy tourist town near a played-out silver mine. When kids messing around in the mine accidentally rouse an ancient evil on All Hallows’ Eve, the secret and magical cats of the neighbourhood are the only thing protecting their special people from the things that go bump in the night.
This 50-page Fate Core adventure provides everything you need to play, from character generation to plot and setting ideas, including a new feline magic system based on true names and sacrifices made to protect your human Burdens.
Sharpen your claws and prepare to defend your territory!

Pick of the Week
The samurai of Rokugan are both warriors and diplomats, serving their clans on the battlefields and in the courts. No true samurai can afford to neglect either field, lest they be found wanting at the critical moment. The Empire’s most famous works of strategy—the Book of Sun Tao and Otomo Madoka’s Subtlety of the Court—are studied by countless samurai who seek the crucial edge that will mean victory.
Sword and Fan, the latest supplement for the Legend of the Five Rings 4th Edition RPG, explores every aspect of the samurai’s two most important activities: war and politics. Viewed through the prism of two of the Emerald Empire’s greatest works of strategy, this book explores military strategy and tactics, cavalry warfare, the world of the winter court, the art and practice of etiquette, the religious role of the Emperor, and many more aspects to these vital elements of the samurai’s life!
- Nine chapters covering every aspect of both war and politics in Rokugan!
- Histories and game stats for the Empire’s most famous generals and courtiers!
- New game mechanics including the Yasuki Taskmasters, the Children of Doji, the Mantis Orochi Riders, and the Ikoma Tacticians!
- And much, much more!

Evil Reigns in the Elven Ruins
Where elves once built the shining city of Myth Drannor, demons and devils now prowl in search of prey. Ancient evil slumbers beneath mossy stones, waiting for those foolish enough to venture within its grasp. Bold swordsmen, stealthy rogues, and skillful wizards have all met their end within the walls of Myth Drannor. But the lure of the city's magical treasures still draws heroes and villains alike to tempt death—or worse.
Drawn by the dream of limitless magical power, the Cult of the Dragon has carved out a secret stronghold in the heart of the ruins. Using the power of a corrupted pool of radiance, the Cultists stand poised to attain their goal of subjugating all of Faerûn... unless a group of brave heroes can stop them first.
This adventure can be played as a stand-alone or as a tie-in with the Pool of Radiance: Ruins of Myth Drannor computer game.
