New stuff at the Outpost : 10/14/2009

We have some exciting releases for RPG's and a magnificent looking board game in new at the store this week.


  • The Adventurers The Adventurers and the Temple of Chac is a new and exciting board game unlike any you’ve played before. From AEG and Dust Games, The Adventurers features a fast-paced thrilling run through the Temple of Chac, the Mayan rain god. As your intrepid adventurers delve through the ruins, they will face deadly traps guarding the ancient relics they prize.

    Featuring beautiful miniatures and exciting pieces to construct the traps of the temple, The Adventurers is one adventure you won’t want to miss!


  • Houses of the Blooded - Thousands of years ago, the ven ruled the world. They were a passionate people, obsessed with Romance and Revenge, opera and theater, and all the forbidden delights their decadent culture provided. In the end, that which made them beautiful was also the key to their own destruction. Houses of the Blooded is a game about tragic obsession. Set in the fantastic world of ven myth and legend, players take the roles of powerful characters bent on conquering their world, destroying their enemies and possessing all they desire.

  • Eclipse Phase RPG  - Eclipse Phase is an RPG set in Earth's far distant future, when humanity has achieved immortality by abandoning the need for physical bodies and transforming brain patterns into digital information. As a result, characters can change their bodies at will and always have a "backup copy" ready to deploy in case of "death." The game uses a percentile system and has no set classes, allowing customization based on skills, including psionic abilities.

  •  Starblazer Adventures - Gigantic fleets prowl the starlanes, mysterious aliens devise inexplicable fates for humankind, devilish scientists operate enormous engines of destruction and swashbuckling princes defend their world from ancient empires. 

  •  Secrets of New Orleans (Call of Cthulhu) - New Orleans is a city of many faces. The gaiety of Mardi Gras is juxtaposed with the rampant corruption that earned it the nickname "The City That Care Forgot." The genteel decline of the French Quarter, the location of the city's original settlement, stands in contrast to the rich opulence of the Garden District, where the Americans later built their mansions. Voodoo and Catholicism exist side by side. Behind it's shining mask the leering visage of the Mythos can be found.

  • The Tome of Secrets (Pathfinder) - The Tome of Secrets is a collection of advanced and optional rules for players and game masters of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
