Just wanted to let you know that the Torchbearer PDF has been updated on the Burning Store and DriveThruRPG. Bits & Mortar also has the updated PDF.
If you bought the PDF through the Burning Store, or received it via the Torchbearer or Middarmark Kickstarter:
- Go to the Burning Store
- Log in
- Go to the My Account tab
- Click the My Downloadable Products link in the dashboard on the side
- Click the Torchbearer PDF link
The latest version of the PDF, TB_layout_r27_2ndprint_scrn brings the PDF in line with the second printing of Torchbearer. Most of the updates are fairly minor:
- We fixed some punctuation and typos and cleaned up a few sentences to make them clearer.
- We added Laborer as suggested help for Alchemist, Armorer, Healer, Hunter, Survivalist and Weaver.
- We removed Lore Master as suggested help for Hunter and replaced it with Survivalist.
The only “big” change is that Level 2 traits now grant +1D to two rolls per session, rather than to all rolls to which they apply during the session. (See Trait Levels, page 22)
I know many of you that missed the Kickstarter have been eagerly awaiting the release of Middarmark. Well the time has come. The Middarmark book+PDF ($20) and PDF ($10) are now available on the Burning Store, as is the new and improved Torchbearer GM Screen ($15).
For those of you who may have missed it, Middarmark is a setting supplement for Torchbearer inspired by Scandinavian myth and folktales. It’s chock full of adventure ideas to give you a jumping off point for your campaigns, along with new settlements, legends of infamous lairs and harrowing places, details on the more popular Hero Cults of the Young Lords, and, of course, new spells, magic items, monsters and more!
Contend with the slave-taking pirates of the Skera Strait and the Kraken that preys upon those waters. Explore the Trollfjells for signs of the chaos cultists of the Jotunn Hrym and the terrifying Temple of Black Skulls dedicated to him. Follow the legends of Sigrun, Lady of Battles, to the fog-shrouded barrow downs in hope of winning her war-magic. Aid the elves who quest ceaselessly for the Tower of Seven Dreams where the Erlking holds the key to ending their long exile. Seek the fate of the fabled dwarven kingdom Nidavellir, near the gates of Hel. Adventure awaits!
Middarmark opens new vistas of possibility for Torchbearer. Within you’ll find nature descriptors and questions for six human tribes, a new class in the form of the human skald, rules for steadings (a new form of town), rules for how various weather conditions affect your adventurers and much more.
