Exclamation New Product News & Discussion

Both the Black Madonna adventure module and the Hostile Waters expansion for 4e are now available for pre-order. Physical copies are currently scheduled to ship in June. Those who pre-order either product immediately receive access to the PDF version.

Kickstarter backers gained access to The Black Madonna beta PDF several months ago. The final version was released yesterday.

I haven't had a chance to look closely at the Hostile Waters beta yet, but its overall production quality is in line with previous Free League 4e products. It includes a reboot of the v1 Pirates of the Vistula adventure module, albeit somewhat abridged. Like most previous FL 4e material, it's written so that it can be played out in either Poland or Sweden* (with the Gota Canal substituting for the Vistula in the Swedish version). It also includes some material for Boomer and Going Home reboots.

Hostile Waters also includes riverine combat rules and a pretty neat collection of fully stat'ed vessels, with illustrations. Cutaway diagrams of both the Wisla Krolowa river tug and an Ohio class SSBN are provided. My only gripe with the vessel selection is that no hovercraft were included.

As Hostile Waters currently exists in beta form, FL is collecting errata on its 4e discussion forum until March 10, IIRC.

*This is not true of the Black Madonna. It's exclusively set in Poland.

I was pretty impressed with BM a couple of months ago when I saw the BETA version, and I imagine it's only gotten better since.

I haven't had a chance to fully dig into Hostile Waters yet, but i skimmed through it. Production quality is great as always. I love the art style that FL has been using throughout the line so far, and HW is no exception. New weapons list is short. New vehicles is actually more comprehensive than I was expecting in terms of what craft are being showcased. I also noted one or two rules to use for fighting aircraft in the book as well, which was welcome. Excited to dig more into the supplement over the next few months.

>Is there a way to order ONLY the PDF version? Not feeling the urge to spend $40 on a new box set every time there's an expansion.

Not ATM, but when it officially releases in June, you should be able to order a PDF-only version on DTRPG.

This assumption is based on the fact that DTPRG is currently selling PDF-only copies of the core rules and Urban Operations module. The latter is going for $19.99, as opposed to around $40 for the physical/digital available thru Free League's website.

Default Baltic Boats: A Supplemental Vehicle Guide for T2k 4e's 'Hostile Waters' Module

I thought folks might like a little something to tide them over until Hostile Waters drops this June.

https://preview.drivethrurpg.com/en/...6/baltic-boats

Although 'Baltic' features prominently in the title, the US and Soviet vessels (including hovercraft) contained therein could be encountered anywhere in the world that either navy operated during WWIII. And although the stats provided are for the 4e rules, there's very little in the book that ties it closely to the 4e timeline; all of the vessels included could appear in any of the canonical T2k timelines.
