January 30, 2023: GreedQuest Back In Print This Year!
Long out-of-print, we have an updated edition of GreedQuest scheduled for release this summer. We've updated the components, switching to heavier stocks and a mounted gameboard.
What is GreedQuest? We'll let the game's cover text tell us all about it!
We have not yet officially set a release date, but we are . . . [more]Share this post!
January 29, 2023: Now Available On Demand: Man To Man
Originally published in 1985, this is a complete rule system of hand-to-hand pre-modern combat . . . and it's also the first release for GURPS! Design heroes (or scoundrels), take up arms, and wander through a venue of your own design as you exercise your martial might.
This new print-on-demand version is based on a scan of the original edition, cleaned up digitally. It's not as sharp as if it were from a pure-digital source, but it's eminently readable while retaining its old-school feel. Note that the original version had a "pull out" section that took advantage of its stapled form; those same tables and maps are put in the back of the volume or convenience's sake. Please feel free to copy them for personal use. (The original version also included Cardboard Heroes that we couldn't . . . [more]Share this post!
January 28, 2023: Incoming Container!
As you may have heard, the last few years have been rough when it comes to international shipping. Between expenses and delays, bringing new games into the warehouse was a challenge and caused some of us intense stress. Fortunately, the situation has improved a lot and it appears things are returning to a more stable place. This is good news, because shipping headaches bring with them frustration . . . and none of us need that.
Our latest container is close to landing, and as we were reviewing the contents and release schedule, we thought it might be fun to share a quick list of what's on this particular container.

January 27, 2023: Kobolds Ate My Baby! The Orange Book On BackerKit
The Kobolds are back! 9th Level Games is currently funding Kobolds Ate My Baby! The Orange Book over on BackerKit. It's a totally new edition of KAMB! powered by their award-winning polymorph™ system.
We love the game, and we also love its artist, a cool guy named John Kovalic! When the last edition was funded, we collaborated on a stretch goal on the project: Munchkin Kobolds Ate My Baby! (that's still available, by the way, and would pair deliciously with Munchkin Babies . . .)
Some awesome stuff on this BackerKit:
And if you want more adorably menacing kobold content, check out 9th Level's TikTok page! Their charming spokeskobold, Yeet, makes regular appearances.

January 26, 2023: In Praise Of PDFs
I recently wrote about our efforts at "uplifting" our print-on-demand reprints to color with full errata as part of our On Demand program. This had another side effect – which is one of my favorite aspects of the digital era. Namely, we updated all those volumes in folks' Warehouse 23 digital libraries.
This was nontrivial! We're still in the process of breaking in the new Warehouse 23, so we needed to redo the files on all our digital stores. In addition, I took the opportunity to refresh the preview files, since I want folks to see extracts of the exact files they're getting if they buy the PDFs.
If you purchased these items previously through an account with our online store, simply log into that account, check out your downloadable library (on the new or old site), and grab the new versions today!
