Happy New Year!

We ring in the new year with our third volume of Arsenal Cards. Volume 3 features Rifles, thosse iconic and classic weapons from the American Wild West and countless battlefields around the world. This volume features over 130 different rifles, from the Winchester Model 1873 (The Gun that Won the West!), to classic infantry weapons such as the Mauser Gewehr 98 and the Springfield Model 1903. These weapons have had long staying power, even when newer semi-automatic and assault rifles came on the scene these weapons are still popular with militaries and hunters.

This volume features weapons made from the late 18th century to modern versions of this versitile and iconic weapon. As with the other volumes in the Arsenal Card series this set features full color images of the weapon on one side of the card and detailed information about the rifle on the other, from years of manufacture, cartridge type, action, and number of rounds carried. We used actual ballistic data calculated for each weapon to determine each rifles relative Power and Recoil so you can add a touch of realism to you game. The set is designed to allow players and GMs to visualize the weapons in their game and to give you more variety and detail to make your game come alive.

New review of The Divine Order: Jute - Faith of Creation.
Shane O'Connor, staff reviewer at RPGNow has a new review of The Divine Order: Jute - Faith of Creation posted at RPGNow. Shane says, "The Divine Order: Jute does a truly excellent job of portraying a fantasy d20 religion. No punches are pulled in how this product presents the religious faith here (the Jutian love of life means that they run hospices and soup kitchens, for example, but viciously come down on abortion or homosexuality), and the crunch is solid, backing up the fluff material. Even considering that this is campaign specific, this is easily adapted to any campaign world." Read Shane's entire review here.
