Imminent Releases For Majus RPG And Gygax Magazine Issue 2

A few new products are on the horizon that I'm pretty excited about (not Mutant Future-related...sorry). Thought I'd toss up a few shout-outs tonight:

Goblinoid Games has released a new Pacesetter RPG! Written by Michael Curtis, Majus is described as magic noir adventures of supernatural intrigue." Since the dawn of time, various factions have been vying for power in a battle known as the Mehen, and each has its own goals and drives: immortality, ultimate knowledge, power over reality, domination over mankind. It is into this global conflict that the players are thrust. Those who have played WW's Mage, read the exploits of Harry Dresden, or can imagine magic playing a role in a classic film noir have a good idea of the "feel" of Majus. Now then, I was a Kickstarter backer for the game which had a release date of August 2013. And my book arrived in the mail this week. (THAT'S how it's supposed to work, "Other Kickstarters Who Are Weeks, Months, Years Late.")

UPDATE: Majus is now available in PDF format! (Print version available after the Kickstarter backers get their copies.) Click here to go to the Goblinoid Games online shop to get your copy!
