Lore Gaming, the future publisher of the Lore line of thematically-related role-playing games, has been rebuilding its website for quite some time now, but the redesigned pages are nearly done. By late afternoon tomorrow, the site should have a new look and contain lots of information on several forthcoming releases: Lore: Uprising (a science-fantasy game), Lore: Origins (a pure-fantasy prequel to Lore: Uprising) and Lore: Hunters (a modern-day horror RPG). Just remember that if you follow any of the links in this article before Sunday afternoon, it’s entirely possible that they won’t be completely done yet!
Mythrole: Merchants Ready for Business
Mythrole Games, the publisher of several downloadable, printable board games (including Night of the Ill-Tempered Squirrel and Rally), has just released a new product — Mythrole: Merchants. This fantasy board game allows between two and six players to take on the roles of merchants and strategically trade goods with each other, using either friendly or brutally competitive tactics. The game costs $7.00 to download and requires that you print and assemble your own set. If you want to know what you’re getting into before actually doing all that work, a free instruction manual is available.
