What’s New @ 3EG: April 2019 Edition

Hello, Third Eye Games fans, and welcome to something new we’re trying out. Rather than send out updates and announcements every single time we release something new and shiny, we’re going to start posting a monthly update. Less clutter, more games, right? 

First, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Todd Crapper, the Marketing & Design Manager for Third Eye Games. While Eloy’s off herding all the cats he’s unleashed into the world, it’s my job to make a big fuss about… well, everything. 2019 has already proven to be a very productive year for us as we started fulfilling our two incredibly successful Kickstarters from last year… and there’s still more to come.

Second, Third Eye Games is now on Discord. With the demise of Google+ and the fluctuations that can occur with social media’s waning popularity, we decided to set up something closer to a forum that we can control and populate with our fans. We’re already looking at close to 40 people on our Discord and it’s only days old at the time of this writing, so why not stop on by and join in the fun?

Now, let’s get down to what we’ve released this past month, shall we?

Pip System Primer #5 – Animals

Humans have always had a fascination with the animal world. We’ve seen animals represented in cave drawings, ancient sculptures, classic stories, and modern cartoons. Now it’s time to bring them into your Pip System game. The Pip System Primer #5makes it easy to create and share animal-themed stories and animal magic with this collection of articles, archetypes, extras, and an original adventure from the publisher of the Pip System Corebook

Includes:

  • “The Amazing World of Animals” by Jacob Wood
  • “Animal Magic in the Pip System” by Jessica Karels
  • Animal Archetypes by Jacob Wood
  • A Brand New Adventure: “Wild Rescue” by Martin John Manco
  • New animal-themed pre-generated characters and extras

This is the fifth of our Quarterly Releases from Third Eye Games, through our Patreon, and each issue will cover a new genre or topic.

H. P. Lovecraft Preparatory Academy

As a student at the prestigious H.P. Lovecraft Preparatory Academy, you’ll uncover conspiracies, deal with bullies and uncaring professors, explore dangerous steam tunnels, study for exams, escape from horrible monstrosities that humanity was never meant to see, and try to avoid an extended stay at Arkham Sanitarium. And that’s just orientation week!

  • A semi-humorous RPG in the tradition of Saturday morning cartoons featuring mystery-busting kids…only the monsters are real. 
  • Features a detailed sandbox environment on the campus of a haunted New England boarding school. 
  • Six different Student Types to choose from, including Witches, Summoners, or Mad Scientists. 
  • A simple task resolution derived from the PDQ System: roll 2d6 + skill modifier against a target number. 
  • Design your own faculty! Want Dr. Frankenstein to be the new Biology professor? No problem! 
  • Thanks to the medical breakthroughs developed by Dr. West in the school infirmary, your character can’t die…but sanity is another matter entirely. 
  • Tons of optional rules to customize your individual game.

What’s Coming Up Next?

Our next product will be a hybrid of H.P. Lovecraft Preparatory Academy (which we just call HPL Prep to spare our fingers all that extra typing) and the Pip System. Thank to our backers, we’re putting the finishing touches on our Lovecraftian game using the popular Pip System rules. You can stay up to date on all our new and upcoming releases by finding us on Discord or following us on Twitter.

Until next time, thanks for reading all the way to the bottom.
