  1. I’ve created a Facebook (non-official) discussion group, the Gathering Hall, for the Osprey RPG line – general chat and info. Anyone needing a specific game, I’ll also redirect to the appropriate FB group too. https://www.facebook.com/groups/602507410355068/
  2. No new Jackals info as yet, though it looks like 2021 and not then end of 2020 for the core book, but there is info from other RPGS in the fantastic Osprey RPG line - https://ospreypublishing.com/blog/ospreygames_gencon_day3/
  3. The British Museum are running a series of blogs called Historical City travel guides that may be of use for Jackals gamers. https://blog.britishmuseum.org/historical-city-travel-guide-thebes-egypt-13th-century-bc/ https://blog.britishmuseum.org/historical-city-travel-guide-athens-5th-century-bc/ https://blog.britishmuseum.org/historical-city-travel-guide-rome-1st-century-ad/ https://blog.britishmuseum.org/historical-city-travel-guide-nineveh-7th-century-bc/
  4. The Bloomsbury page for the games has updated with a cover image for the second Jackals book, "Jackals: The Fall of the Children of Bronze." Looks rather nice, very exciting https://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/jackals-the-fall-of-the-children-of-bronze-9781472837691/
  5. Hi all, Been meaning to post here for a while, not sure why I never got round to doing so. I've been keeping an eye on all things Osprey RPG since the line was announced and was lucky enough to pick up Paleomythic and Romance of the Perilous Realm at Dragonmeet 2019. Since then I've been gathering information on all the current and upcoming games. I've just done a post of all that on Enworld forums (and one at RPGNet) - here. Really looking forward to this game and was really happy to see there is a follow-on campaign book, which is a first so far for the Osprey RPG line. Also great to see John-Matthew here and all your feedback, amazing stuff Edit: And as a massive TOR/AiME fan/collector I applaud any book that does Darkening of Mirkwood style, because the C7 stuff is amazing, and that book was up there at the top. I am looking forward to where Fria Lagan take the franchise after C7 dropped it. I am UK-based so keep an eye on Amazon UK rather than the US one, unlike most posters here I think. The Amazon UK has just shifted the release date for the core book from 24 Sep 2020 to 11 Feb 2021 (link) and the campaign guide expected 23 Feb 2021 to 18 May 2021 (link). Bloomsbury UK site is currently unchanged. Is that right John-Matthew? Also, I hope it's not getting anyone in trouble, I found the following links in my search for Jackals info, since Osprey usually only release closer to the time. I found mention of a playtest here: https://skrifa.wordpress.com/category/game-recaps/zaharets/ And snippets of art here: https://kellybennett.art/jackals Really looking forward to this game!
