Terra Nova is one of the last remaining free planets, a world split by ideologies, politics, and the fight for resources, and is now the front line of a war for control of all known space. Earth abandoned Terra Nova when the Human Concordat, the united government of Earth, collapsed almost 500 years ago.
Now Earth's Military Forces have again returned to reclaim their wayward colony.
You are the commander of a force tasked with holding back the invaders and their mighty armies of clone GREL infantry, hovertanks, the frightening FLAIL Battle Frames combat vehicles. Fighting with Earth are allies from the Caprician Corporations, with their insectoid Combat Mounts; the high tech Utopians with their swarms of N-KIDU drones; and the feudal Edenite Golems.
The "Living Rulebook Beta" contains all the rules for combat during the second invasion of Terra Nova by the Colonial Expeditionary Forces of Earth.
These rules are a refinement of the previously available Heavy Gear Blitz Beta rules. The Living Rulebook will be a perpetual online resource, and will be updated regularly with new scenarios, new models, and new forces for you to command.

Sharpen your blade. It’s time to hit the mean and dusty streets of Rome.
Experience Roman noir firsthand in Eagle Eyes, the latest Fate World of Adventure from Pete Woodworth. Battle cynicism, corruption and murder in the shadow of the Coliseum. Play Eagles, the Senate's private investigators, and use every means at your disposal to get at the truth behind everything from "ordinary" murders and robberies to high treason, noble intrigue, military coup attempts, and perhaps even the strange and terrible excesses of the Emperors.
Life is cheap and the dust of Rome soaks up a lot of blood, but the rewards for those that survive are beyond the dreams of lesser men.
Eagle Eyes requires Fate Accelerated or Fate Core to play. This 43-page supplement contains:
An in-depth look at the setting of ancient Rome in Fate
A twist on Fate Accelerated approaches that allows characters to invoke Roman deities
GM advice on dealing with characters of different social classes and group dynamics
System constructs for conspiracies and mysteries in Fate
Adventure seeds to get you started gaming
Eagle Eyes. Some things cannot be left unseen…
The Fate Adventures & Worlds line provides compact, rich, affordable, gorgeous settings with a ready-to-go adventure for GMs in a pinch. Buy one this afternoon, be ready to run this evening.
Children kidnapped in the night, unusually cunning Trolls, a mysterious caravan, the fate of a company of Hobbits, the legacy of the Dúnedain, and an evil awakening beneath the barrows—six new stories set in the ancient land of Eriador... six adventures that need a company of heroes to undertake them.
Ruins of the North contains six ready-to-play adventures, complete scenarios that can be played separately or as an epic series spanning a number of years. All adventurers are set in the years prior to 2977, and take place in the lands surrounding Rivendell.
Ruins of the North complements the background and rules material contained in Rivendell, the latest supplement for The One Ring Roleplaying Game based upon The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
Delve into the ruins of overgrown Fornost, walk amidst the cairns of the Barrow-downs and venture to the lair of the Witch-king of Angmar himself, the ancient city of Carn Dûm—if you have the courage!
The Player’s Guide to Freeport gives you everything you need to create and master a character in a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game campaign set in the City of Adventure.
Lead designer Owen K.C. Stephens used his system mastery to craft new rules and options perfect for Freeport or any other swashbuckling/nautical campaign setting. You’ll find three new character classes—freebooter, monster slayer, and noble—and many new archetypes like corsair, musketeer, and witch hunter.
It also features new feats, race options, equipment, spells, and magic items, and includes an overview of Freeport itself, so you can learn something about the city before your campaign begins. As a primer on the City of Adventure or a rules supplement for any Pathfinder Roleplaying Game campaign, the Player’s Guide to Freeport is a sourcebook fit for a Sea Lord!
Note: The content of the Player’s Guide to Freeport comes from Freeport: The City of Adventure. It has been broken out separately to give players easy access to the material in a book that contains no setting spoilers.
The number of ways you can step wrong in Cheyenne are higher than a lot of shadowrunners can count. There are political, ethnic, tribal, and racial divides, and stepping on the wrong side of them can not only end your job prospects, but it can put you in a hastily dug hole in the ground. Move quickly and be agile, though, and you can slip through the snares that trip up lesser runners, accumulating the street rep and nuyen that will put you at the top of the runner heap.
Cheyenne is the second book in the "Shadows in Focus: Sioux Nation" series, providing details about a Sixth World location steeped in tradition, conflict, and both technological and Awakened dangers. With location details, information on power players, and more, Cheyenne will help flesh out the Shadowrun setting for players and build adventures and campaigns for gamemasters.
Cheyenne is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.
