by Wednesday 23 November 2016
worldsinperil In November 2016 we presented the all-new Indie Cornucopia +4, the fourth annual installment in our Thanksgiving series of offers featuring recent top-quality small-press tabletop RPGs. This time out we had major new games like Worlds in Peril, Baker Street, and the new edition of The Ninja Crusade; Kickstarter successes like Fellowship and Goblin Quest; and Jonathan Green’s stupendous coffee-table book about the Fighting Fantasy gamebook series, You Are the Hero.
