Episode 51 – D&D starter Set

Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks episode! So we recorded this last weekend and it went in a direction none of us expected. I have to say, we where all really impressed with the basic rules and I’m looking forward to receiving my copy of the players handbook on the 15th.

If you are interested in picking up a copy of the Basic starter set, it is available now and the Players hand book is available in select stores now, but the official release date is August 15th. I would recommend ordering a copy from, pre-order cost is $20 off list($49.95). If you have tried out 5th edition let us know what you think of it.

Episode 34 – RPG Corner: Supernatural


On this episode of RPG Corner we go thru character creation featuring Edward Slowski our intrepid new hunter. Click on the following link to download the PDF character sheet: Edward Slowski




The guide to the hunted and Adventures books are a great addition to the core rules book. Although we have found it rather hard to find copies of these books at a reasonable price. Your best bet would be a used book store or ebay. Let us know if you have played the Supernatural RPG of used the CORTEX system in a game.
