Back This: The Night Companion for Night Shift: Veterans of the Supernatural Wars


Jason Vey and Timothy Brannan are two talented people who I've been fans of for years and their Night Shift: Veterans of the Supernatural Wars was a high point for me last year when it was fulfilled. Who doesn't want to play Buffy/Angel/Hellboy using, essentially, ADnD 1E? And as a fan of Eden Studios' RPG products I loved that the format they chose was a callback to Unisystem books.

The Night Companion is on Kickstarter right now and only has 4 days to go. I've been swamped or I'd have been drawing attention to it sooner but you still have time.

The Night Companions has tons of options and settings and I can't wait to get my grubby hands on it.

I really can't recommend their stuff more and I think you will love Night Shift if you give it a try.

DriveThruRPG's Deal of the Day: BX Ascending RPG

For the next 22 Hours you may purchase my very own BX Ascending retroclone of B/X Dungeons & Dragons at DriveThruRPG as the Deal of the Day for 80¢ right here.



BX Ascending offers a resolution mechanic based off of B/X DnD's Saving Throw mechanic and adds Trained Skill and Untrainted Skill as new "Saving Throws". The Dungeon Master doesn't set a Difficulty and you have to exceed as in later editions of DnD.
