OgreCave's Christmas Gift Guide 2006, part 4

It's panic time, and our OgreCave Christmas Gift Guide 2006 is here one more time to help. Time has run out to ship products to friends, so we suggest getting electronic with An Aetheric Guide for Christmas, our quick list of a few standout downloadable products you can have emailed to friends or burn to a disc to stick in someone's stocking (paying for each copy, naturally). Have a look, good luck, and happy holidays from the OgreCave staff.

Margaret Weis to launch Battlestar Galactica RPG

Though leaked a while ago, the announcement finally came down from Margaret Weis Productions, Ltd., and just in time for Christmas: yes, Virginia, there is a Battlestar Galactica RPG in the works. A quickstart guide is planned for early 2007, and the main game should be a spring release. The new roleplaying game will use the same rule system as the Serenity RPG. See the official press release below.

OgreCave's Christmas Gift Guide 2006, part 3

Okay, let's face it: at this point, the only gift shopping left to provide suggestions for is the last week of panic shopping. Or post-holiday gift certificate spending! Either way, OgreCave's Christmas Gift Guide 2006 has more great gift ideas for gamers, in Twelve Games Around the d20. Oddly enough, this third list focuses on gift ideas from the d20 System and its offshoots. We'll have more for you soon, but don't wait for us - fly, you fools! Get those gifts under wraps, lest friends and relatives regard you as they would a glass of sour egg nog.

Let the BattleLore modding begin!

A bunch of dudes in Antwerp have taken BattleLore, kept the cards and the hexes, and wound up with a compellingly different game anyway. Warning: not for those who fear PDFs. Or tables (like, the kind you look stuff up on).

OgreCave's Christmas Gift Guide 2006, part 2

Through rain and snow (or jury duty and computer issues, in my case), the OgreCave Christmas Gift Guide 2006 continues. Our sixth annual guide to what should bedeck your Christmas haul gets into the meat of the matter in 12 Games Under the Tree - our picks for your larger value game items (over $20) this holiday. But we'll have even more sugestions as our annual guide delves into d20 goodies in the days ahead. We'll finish this gift guide yet! (Gods willing and the computer viruses don't rise...)

This is not a drill: Monte Cook's World of Darkness announced

Um? This certainly has potential to be interesting - like the celebrity WoD remixes in the Requiem Chronicler's Guide but on a much grander scale - but as a final project before retirement? To follow Ptolus? Monte Cook's WtF is more like it. Timeframe is next summer.

Mongoose looks ahead to 2007

With the Thanksgiving holiday tearing through your schedule recently, you may have missed the highlights of Mongoose Publishing's State of the Mongoose 2006 for RPGs, for miniatures, and other projects. Mongoose's Matthew Sprange was kind enough to reveal the tidbit that sales in the USA are down 20-25%, while they've sharply increased in the UK. He went on to mention general plans for the company's many product lines, which included the following:
