If you haven't seen it then here is the Autumn update from Pete & Ken. Hi folks, Had a lovely review of OneDice Supers from the Pits Perilous RPG blog this week, which warmed the cockles of our hearts. To celebrate, we've released an alternative Supers character sheet, including an interactive version for free here! There's also going to be more material for Supers in the next issue of the fanzine Rolling Thunder, which will be out when the Stars are Right. The current issue of Rolling Thunder should be available in print in the next week or so, for the princely sum of $5 plus postage, keep a watch on our DriveThruRPG page. In other news, some of you have been asking what happened to Michael Scott Rohan's Winter of the World RPG. Due to a plethora of problems beyond our control, it's all got rather delayed, but will be out this winter. Also in the pipeline are Gin & Hellfire (a book of adventures for Dark Streets 2nd Edition), Tales of Tortuga (an adventure/sourcebook for Pirates & Dragons), Adventures in Kerys (A sourcebook forWinter of the World), Clockwork of Orange (a campaign for Clockwork & Chivalry),OneDice Spies: Martinis and Masterminds, and OneDice Robin Hood, with several more OneDice books in the offing. And as if that's not enough, Mystical Throne Entertainment will be bringing outDark Streets: Five Points (Cthulhu role-playing in 19th century New York for Dark Streets 2nd Edition). In other other news, our back catalog is slowly being released back in to friendly local game stores in the USA via Studio 2 Publishing, and will soon be appearing in UK games stores too, courtesy of Esdevium. The nights are fair drawing in, what better time to huddle indoors with your friends, away from the cold winds of autumn and play a new RPG? May all your rolls be high!

Five Points is a game of urban horror in America’s first melting pot, the Five Points neighborhood of New York City. Set in the 1840's and 50's against a backdrop of the Cthulhu Mythos, Five Points is powered by Dark Streets from Cakebread & Walton. Players take on the roles of runners or advisors for the Bowery Street Runners, an homage to the Bow Street Runners from London’s past, fighting against the terrors of the night. Can you stop them before the stars are right? Five Points includes: A detailed historical look at New York City’s Five Points neighborhood during the 19th century. Organizations straight from history. Character creation for Bowery Runners. Setting information for running Five Points games. A collection of adventure frames. … and more! Five Points is not a standalone book. It requires use of the Dark Streets core rulebook available from Cakebread & Walton. http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/195092/Five-Points-Dark-Streets
Has anyone played through this adventure, or read any reviews of it? Any good? I've got a copy of Hellfire, which is quite a brutal adventure - and I'm curious how the Missing Prof compares to it. Would it make a good start to Dark Streets campaign? From its DTRPG page, I see that it's part 1 of the "Terror of the Toad" campaign. Have any other parts been released, or are there any release dates for when the followups are expected?
