Free Product of the Week
Lore of the Deceived is a free product that offers new content for Mummy: The Curse games.
Although it is a follow-up and companion piece to Book of the Deceived, the official supplement on the Lost Guild, some of the material it offers can be used independent of that sourcebook.
- Rules for discerning a being's true name, and thus gaining a measure of occult power over that soul.
- Over 20 new seba (Deceived relics), including a sampling of four- and five-dot seba.
- A host of new Nomenclature powers, including new Affinities and Utterances.
- A four-page interactive character sheet tailored expressly to the Deceived (separate download).
Come, scale the pyramid of names... and be deceived.

Notes from Scott's Desk
For all correspondence, feel free to contact me, Scott Holden, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You might have noticed we didn't send our usual Thursday newsletter last week, but that's only because we wanted to hold off on that for today. Why? you ask. (I hear you asking!)
Because today we launched our GM's Day sale, in celebration of GM's Day tomorrow, March 4th. This is our biggest sales event of the year. From now through till the end of this weekend, get thousands of titles, all for 30% off!
And if you want to do something really nice for your GM, then it's hard to go wrong with a gift certificate from DriveThruRPG!
But that's not the only cool news.

And finally, our friends at Bundle of Holding have some great, ongoing deals for you. When you buy either of these bundles, the titles are automatically added to your DriveThru Library.
Hillfolk, designed by Robin D. Laws (Feng Shui, GUMSHOE), lets you create your own character-driven episodic dramas that feel like prestige cable-TV series such as Game of Thrones or The Sopranos. The offer includes a big bunch of "series pitches" by many top RPG writers.
This Hillfolk offer runs through Thursday, March 12.
The IGDN Bundle is a collection of indie RPGs from the designers in the Indie Game Developer Network.
Cheers and good gaming! Happy GM's Day!

Pick of the Week
The Second Age of Man is a savage time of sorcery and bloodshed, where strong men and beautiful women battle with warlords, priests, magicians, and gladiators to carve a boody path to the Throne of Lemuria.
Barbarians of Lemuria is a heroic role-playing game set firmly in the sword-and-sorcery genre. Lemuria is a post-apocalyptic world set thousands of years in the future. The continent has returned to an almost prehistoric state—steaming jungles, vast untamed wildernesses, horror-filled swamplands, and sunbaked deserts. Massive man-eating beasts roam the unexplored regions of Lemuria and beyond, from island-sized sea serpents capable of sinking war galleys to the huge, jungle-dwelling dinosaurs that can swallow a man whole.
Included with this purchase are two versions of the main PDF, full color and printer friendly. Two covers are also included, one with artwork and one without.

Does your Crew have what it takes to fly the Good Shepherd’s Run?
SMUGGLER’S GUIDE TO THE RIM is a supplement for the FIREFLY RPG that is designed for both players and GMs. The third supplement in the line, this guide introduces Reputation rules for Crewmembers, 12 new archetypes, the Good Shepherd’s Run, more Chinese translations, more rules, new in-game aids, a pair of Episodes, and more!
We think you’ll appreciate the following:
- Reputation Rules: Find out how to earn your Reputation, how to lose it, and how to make it count.
- New Crewmember Archetypes and Boats: You’ll read about the suggested Reputation die ratings for the Serenity Crew and discover twelve, brand new archetypes along with new ships.
- Good Shepherd’s Run: Each location in the Blue Sun and Kalidasa Systems is presented like a brand new Episode for you to dive in and explore!
- "All in the Family": Written by Margaret Weis. Nothing’s more important than family, ’cept maybe a big ole strongbox of gold coins.
- "Circling the Wagons": Written by Greg Stolze. Folk in the Core think they can put a leash on damn near everyone else in the ’Verse, and one of their leashes is named Special Independent Investigator Garth Mandrake.
- Expanded Appendix: We’ve included a brand new FAQ, Chinese translations, more Distinctions, maps for the Kalidasa and Blue Sun Systems, and a set of brand new tools for players and GMs—an Advancement Sheet that includes Reputation die ratings and a GMC Sheet to take the guesswork out of building GMCs, too!

The near forgotten tribe of bones was crushed beneath the heel of the forming empire. The ponies that made it up were killed or scattered, but they were never entirely destroyed. Remnants of this once powerful tribe still lurk through the pony lands, and even beyond it, praying to the Soft Whisper and doing their small parts to tend to the deceased of ponykind.
Learn more about these shamans, with expanded historic information, stats to play your own, new spells and feats, as well as a tribe specific class archetype in this player-friendly expansion for Ponyfinder.
Compatible with Ponyfinder and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

SYSTEM: Tunnels & Trolls
This is a Game Master supplement intended for Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls (but it will work with any version of the rules).
Each of the kindred (Dwarves, Elves, Halflings, Fairies, Trolls, etc.) has its own spell book, and this is the second among them. Elven magic is the oldest wizardry on Trollworld.

Also of Note
In the West, there’s only one law that everyone understands, that guarantees a quick and decisive verdict, and that treats all people as equals... and that’s the Gunman’s Law!
Not since the inception of TSR’s classic Boot Hill has there been a game that captures the flavor and deadliness of the old West like Gunman’s Law. Carefully blending the historic with the cinematic, Gunman’s Law recreates the gunfights of the mid-to-late 1800s with an unprecedented mix of versatility and verisimilitude.
Gunman’s Law allows both solo player and multiple players (either competitively or cooperatively), to recreate everything from the classic one-on-one showdown in a town’s main street to deadly ambushes.
Part board game, part RPG, and great for use with miniatures, Gunman’s Law breaks new ground by using a multi-purpose Fast Action card deck to determine everything, from a shootist’s speed and accuracy to reaction time.
**THIS IS A BUNDLE PRODUCT. WHEN BUYING THIS ITEM YOU WILL RECEIVE A DOWNLOAD LINK FOR THE MAIN RULEBOOK, AND THREE (3) PRINT PRODUCTS WILL BE SHIPPED TO YOU IN A SINGLE PACKAGE: A 199-CARD DECK, SIX 6x6" TILES, and SIX 12x18" POSTERS. THE MAIN RULEBOOK IS AVAILABLE IN PRINT, BUT SHIPS SEPARATELY.**
