To kick off the year, we wanted to share with you all a first look at two hot new roleplaying games we have coming in the second half of 2024...

A fantasy roleplaying game of hope and heroism in which gifted mortals and Fay creatures fight across time in an eternal battle for the soul of the countryside.

Through the Hedgerow is a fantasy roleplaying game of time travel and supernatural adventure set in the hidden world of the countryside. As Knights of the Briar Company, you are Champions of the Light, charged with protecting the soul and magic of the land against the agents of the Dark, who seek only destruction and chaos. This eternal battle is fought throughout history, from the war-torn Dark Ages and 17th Century to the upheaval of the Industrial Revolution and World War Two.
As one of the Fay – sorcerous birds, animated scarecrows, intelligent spiders, and other beings –
you may be sworn to defend humanity. Or, as a mortal marked by destiny and plucked from your own time, you might be caught up in this struggle. One way or another,
you must step through the hedgerow to face the Darkness…

Through the Hedgerow uses an innovative Checks & Challenges system that encourages players
to contribute to the unfolding narrative, and which makes wits, imagination, charm, and mysticism
as important to overcoming problems as combat. Seek out powerful magical treasures,
safeguard legendary locations, and outwit and outfight the servants of the Dark – wicked Fay lords,
fanatical witch hunters, scheming hags, and the brooding Raven Margrave
whose undead hordes bring death to the land…

An investigative roleplaying game of horrors both ancient and modern, inspired by the works of Arthur Machen and powered by the GUMSHOE system.

Britain at the dawn of the 20th century. In the depths of the countryside, cults celebrate ancient rites in hidden clearings and caverns, beasts of legend emerge from their lairs to prey upon the unwary, and powerful beings of folklore and myth stir once more. In the urban sprawl of London and other cities, secret societies struggle for power and dominance, rogue alchemists pursue occult ambitions, and scientists fuse modern technology with ancient mysticism to create new horrors.

This is the world of The Terror Beneath, an investigative roleplaying game inspired by the works
of the master of horror, Arthur Machen. It is into this world that players will step as unwitting investigators, plucked from amongst an oblivious populace by fate, malice, or blind fortune
and set against the machinations of hidden cults, the creations of mad scientists,
or the unknowable motives of ancient terrors.

The Terror Beneath is powered by the GUMSHOE roleplaying system, designed specifically
to tell stories of mystery and investigation. With less emphasis on finding clues and more
on interpreting them correctly, an investigation never stalls due to a critical clue being missed,
but gives the heroes all the information they need to keep moving inexorably towards
the horrors at the heart of the plot...
