Some of the new favorite games to play (that are not our own) this year has been the great games by Games Workshop under the banner of Warhammer. We like them all, from Warhammer Underworlds, to the Age of Sigmar, to 40K and Kill Team. Of course, you don't enter that hobby without it changing you some. Here's what Warhammer has done to AnSR Games.
In 2009, we released our first RPG: -U- the Game of Stories. That started A'n'SR -entertainments (now AnSR Games). As we gear up to launch a line of U 3rd Edition (U3) RPGs, we are retiring the Classic -U- books. Celebrate a great game with a new 10 Years bundle and a look back.
Each year we set goals to accomplish for AnSR Games. Each year, we report on how we did before we release our next goals. We had a lot of plans for 2018. So... how did we do? Read on.
One of the things we did earlier this year was make ConEx RPG into a U 3rd edition (or U3) version of the game. That was the first U3 game, and now we are getting ready to release the second one: U3 Fantasy RPG.
U3 Fantasy RPG
So, what is U3 Fantasy? Quite simply, it is a generic fantasy version of the U3 system. It uses different PC Details than ConEx, uses d20s instead of six-sided dice, and adds in Story Features (like NPCs and Locations) instead of a group of Story Details. In a nutshell, it is a completely different experience from ConEx, but still wrapped in a portable, rules-lite game that anyone can play. Playtests have gone well, and the art is done. We are, honestly, just waiting for the right time to release it.
What Else is Coming Up?
We are working on doing an Angels RPG using the U3 RPG system and a new small, generic version of the RPG system called U3niversal. 2019 will be a really good year if you like light RPGs... or things that begin with U.
If you have ever wanted to play super-villains doing good deeds under duress, then welcome to U3 ConEx RPG. THis is a great game for 1-shots, a 10-12 game campaign, or to introduce some adult friends into the hobby of story-telling games.
3 Ways to Join the Inmates
ConEx is the first game powered by our new game engine U3, or U 3rd edition. This was formerly called Details and Dots. U3 is light, fun, easy to get, and offers a myriad of ways for us to make game experiences using some of the basic rule sets. Be on the lookout for more U3 games (we have more done and another on its way).
This month, we release The Siege of Tyler City. Here's a quick shot of what the game looks like set-up. Since it is a 2-player game that fits in a small box, it doesn't take up a lot of space, and you are far less likely to flip the table when you lose. In fact... you can just play again.
This month, The Siege of Tyler City releases. Here's a little artwork we did for one of the locations the players battle over in this quick 2-player strategy game set in the wild west. If the Townsfolk can control this and 4 other blue Sherrif's badge locations, the Outlaws lose!
