TRAPDOOR TECHNOLOGIES RELEASES OFFICIALLY LICENSED DIGITAL TOOLSET FOR THE PATHFINDER ROLEPLAYING GAME

Playbook For Pathfinder Now Available in the iOS App Store

Free Download and One Month Free Trial for New Users

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON (June 13, 2016): Trapdoor Technologies announces today the launch of Playbook For Pathfinder, their first officially licensed toolset for the award-winning roleplaying game. Playbook For Pathfinder is now available in the iOS App Store with a free download and one month free trial for new users.

Playbook For Pathfinder allows players to roll-up and manage characters, while Game Masters can purchase and prep adventures and campaigns for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The app features quick rules look-up, information sharing, stat tracking for monsters and PCs, and more.

The app will include the game’s complete rules set, artwork, connection with Pathfinder Society Organized Play events, and an extensive library of Pathfinder adventures. New content releases will be made each Tuesday, with additional adventures and rulebooks being added throughout the year.

At PaizoCon last week, Paizo announced the Starfinder Roleplaying Game—a new science fantasy RPG based on the Pathfinder universe and rules. Trapdoor will be working closely with Paizo to create a sister app for the new RPG system launching in 2017.

“We are really looking forward to the continued integration of the Pathfinder world in Playbook,” said Lisa Stevens, CEO of Paizo. “We believe it has the potential to streamline prep time and become an invaluable tool for both players and Game Masters.”

SYRINSCAPE RELEASES DRAGON’S DEMAND SOUNDPACK FOR THE PATHFINDER RPG, PLUS ALIEN, EARTH ELEMENTAL, AND CRYOGENIC FACILITY

Syrinscape Also Announces Hell’s Rebels as Next Pathfinder Adventure Path in the Works for Syrinscape Treatment

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (July 3, 2015) – Syrinscape, the award-winning app that puts the power of custom, movie-like sound effects, soundscapes, and music, into the hands of the gamer, announces today the release of the Syrinscape SoundPack: Dragon’s Demand, to accompany the popular Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Module: Dragon’s Demand.

The Dragon’s Demand SoundSet includes all of the sounds needed to bring the module to life, with a spectacular Green Dragon, complete with a violently hissing acid breath weapon, a complete Kobold lair with a divine and an arcane spellcasting Kobold leader, a Clockwork Guardian, a small Lightning Elemental, Ghouls, bears, Grioths, and a Flame Drake. The Dragon’s Demand SoundPack includes samples recorded by Pathfinder fans at both PaizoCon 2015 and UK Games Expo 2015.

In further news, Syrinscape is thrilled to announce the next Pathfinder Adventure Path in production for its own SoundPack is Hell’s Rebels, and is expected to release August 2015, in conjunction with the release of the Pathfinder Adventure Path.

Syrinscape also releases today three new Sci-Fi SoundSets for the Syrinscape Sci-Fi Player:

Alien from Alien SoundSet: Yes, that alien. The one with the teeth and the acid and the really gross way of reproducing. With a selection of OneShot sounds such as airlock operations, flame throwers, detonators, and lots of things blowing up and trying to eat you, the Alien from Alien SoundSet has everything you need to scare your players, though it’s probably best to just abandon ship and set it to self destruct.

Earth Elemental SoundSet: Along with some usefull basic ambiances, and the earth-shattering fury of the Earth Elemental, this SoundSet is perfect for a Shadowrun summoning, and is replete with guns, missiles, lasers, and spells, and wreaking havoc in the city or the country.

Cryogenic Facility SoundSet: There’s nothing quite so useful on those deep space missions as a smooth-running cryo facility, and when it’s time for chaos with the click of a button, cryo tubes explode, alarms ring, cold steam bursts, and the staff screams in horror as the smooth running cryo facility goes horribly wrong.

The award-winning Syrinscape app Fantasy Player and Sci-Fi Player bring fantastic, realistic sound to tabletop gaming. Each is available to try for free, and can be completely unlocked for free for 30 days at syrinscape.com/freetrial, and includes 2 free SoundSets to keep after the trial. The Syrinscape app is compatible with a wide range of devices, including PC, Mac, Android Phones and Tablets, iPads, and coming soon for iPhone. To download the free Sci-Fi Player, or Syrinscape Fantasy Player, with an extensive library of sounds for fantasy gaming, including the official sounds for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, visit Syrinscape.

“There is a cancer eating at the Imperium. With each decade it advances deeper, leaving drained, dead worlds in its wake. This horror, this abomination, has thought and purpose which function on an unimaginable, galactic scale, and all we can do is try to stop the swarms of bio-engineered monsters it unleashes upon us. We have given the horror a name to salve our fears; we call it the Tyranid race, but if it is aware of us at all, it must know us only as Prey.”

–Inquisitor Czevak at the Conclave of Har

 

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce The Great Devourer, the first deluxe expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Conquest!

 

A new horror approaches – a ravenous species, sweeping through space and filled with an insatiable hunger. This horror is known by many names: the Great Devourer, the Doom of All Things, the Penance of the Elder Gods. To the Imperium, they are the Tyranids – biologically engineered super-predators perfectly adapted to slaughter and harvest new biomass from conquered worlds. Their numbers are legion. Their hunger is as boundless as space itself. Their only goal is to devour and destroy until the galaxy is lifeless and dead. Now, they have come to the Traxis sector.

 

Two Tyranids warlords lead these horrific creatures into battle, each offering a very different play style. In addition to these warlords and their signature squads, you’ll find a host of new units, supports, events, and attachments to support the Tyranids, including an entirely new type of unit, the synapse unit. The Tyranids aren’t the only ones to benefit from this expansion, however. Every other faction must make its stand against the Great Devourer in the Traxis sector, and brand-new unique characters help them to battle the Tyranid threat.
