Paizo Inc. and Ninja Division Publishing announces pre-painted miniatures for Starfinder RPG

Boise, ID (March 10, 2017) – Ninja Division Publishing LLC. and Paizo Inc. are proud to announce the Starfinder Miniatures collection – the first officially licensed miniatures for the epic campaigns and adventures that players, worldwide, will start experiencing with the launch of the Starfinder® RPG.
Set thousands of years in Pathfinder’s future, the Starfinder RPG is a stand-alone science fantasy game evolved from the Pathfinder RPG rules in which players take on the role of a ragtag starship crew exploring the countless mysteries of a weird galaxy. Starfinder is also designed to integrate easily with the Pathfinder RPG, allowing players of either game to port over monsters, items, and adventures with a minimal conversion effort.

Ninja Division is proud to announce a partnership with Paizo Inc. to bring fans of Starfinder an exciting range of pre-painted miniatures to accompany players on their Starfinder adventures. With painstaking detail and coloring, these pre-painted miniatures bring the heroic crews and explorers from Starfinder to life. The range of pre-painted miniatures will include both adventurers and the ships they use to traverse space, both scaled appropriately to use as gameplay pieces for their unique roles in the Starfinder game system.

HILARITY ENSUES WITH CRAZY GNOMES AND A VERY ANGRY CHIMERA IN NEW GNOMELAND SECURITY SOUNDSET FROM SYRINSCAPE
SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (March 30, 2017) – More than three years in the making, Syrinscape, creator of the award-winning apps that bring tabletop games to life with movie-like sound, announces today the release of the Gnomeland Security SoundSet.

The Gnomeland Security SoundSet features the voice work of Ryan Costello of the Know Direction podcast with his iconic chimera and gnomes from the show. With the most-ridiculous solutions to a raid from a most-vicious beast, with flying attacks, fireworks, flamethrowers, chainsaws and more, Gnomeland Security is already a fan favorite in the SuperSyrin community.
“Gnomeland Security is hands-down the funniest darn SoundSet you’ve come out with. I listen to it just to bathe my ears in the hilarious images it forms in my imagination.”  – SuperSyrin Subscriber
Gnomeland Security is bar-none the most chaotic Syrinscape SoundSet I’ve ever heard,” says Costello. “Even if you’ve run a million encounters about a chimera attacking a gnome village, none will compare to running that encounter with the Gnomeland Security SoundSet.”

Syrinscape creator Benjamin Loomes gives pro-tips for incorporating the Gnomeland Security SoundSet into tabletop gaming in this new video.

Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide
Campaign Sourcebook
Retail 39.95
160 pp.
Published by Wizards of the Coast
Get it here http://www.amazon.com/dp/0786965800/?tag= throgamegogg-20

Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide is 160 pages of material that can be broken down into three sections: the history and geography of Forgotten Realms, a tour of Sword Coast, and descriptions of what characters are like in the Realms with some game mechanics. As a whole the book is not up to par with its price tag, but that doesn’t mean it’s worthless – I have found more than a few morsels in this book, but the “morsels” are the exception in this book. I feel it struggles with being an adventurer’s guide while trying to become a campaign book.
