We’re exploring bringing Fiber to Dallas. This means working with city leaders to understand local requirements and challenges – from roads and infrastructure to permits and utility paths.

It will take time to make sure we can build this network. And we’d love to keep you updated on our progress. Check your address to be among the first to know when we have more to share:

Three recent issues of The Fate Codex magazine are new in our Bundle of Fate +3. The Fate Codex is a mostly-monthly Fate magazine, funded by Mark Diaz Truman's Patreon crowdfunding campaign, that features new fiction, quick starts, systems, and art for Fate Core. In past offers we've presented all seven issues of Volume 1. On to Volume 2 now, with features about converting The Dresden Files RPG to Atomic Robo, using corruption in Fate Accelerated, and new ways to use the Stealth skills. These issues also include the quick-start adventures "Primal World" (bringing Dungeon World's Chaos Worlds to Fate Core); "Forged By Fates" (a Greek-inspired world of monsters and warlords); and "Camp X" (a World War II thriller).

If you've already purchased this Bundle of Fate +3 offer, you get these new issues of The Fate Codex automatically. When you buy a Bundle of Holding early, you never worry about missing a title added later. Just visit your Wizard's Cabinet download page on the Bundle site, so our system can add the new issues to your DriveThruRPG Library.

Anyone need the core, Sunward, Transhuman, Panopticon, or several adventures and character packs - the extended bundle is (was, as of 12/31, anyway) under $20 to pick up. 
Through Wednesday, January 7, we're reviving our June 2014 Eclipse Phase Bundle, a comprehensive tabletop RPG collection from Posthuman Studios that gives you everything you need to start an Eclipse Phase campaign of transhumanist science fiction, conspiracy, and post-apocalypse horror. For just US$8.95 you get all four titles in our starter collection (retail value $40) as DRM-free, non-watermarked .PDF ebooks:

- Eclipse Phase (retail price $20): Join the secret organization Firewall to defend transhumanity from terrorists, nanoswarms, rogue AIs, and more.
- NPC File Volume 1 - Prime (retail $5): Over 30 original characters with descriptions and full stats, ready for any campaign.
- Sunward - The Inner System (retail $15): The inner worlds of the Solar System, from the Solarians who dive into the Sun's corona to an upswelling of Barsoomian patriotism on Mars.
- Eclipse Phase Sample Characters (free): As a convenience to our customers, we include this gorgeous collection of 16 characters from the rulebook, reformatted for 8x10" cardstock.

And if you pay more than the threshold price, which starts at $15.95, you'll level up and get our complete collection of four bonus titles (retail value $40):

- Transhuman (retail $15): This essential player's guide includes a random lifepath generator, expanded rules for infomorphs and flexbots, and over 30 new morphs ready to be sleeved.
- Panopticon (retail $15): How to live in a "transparent" society; the inner workings of space habitats and how to hack them; and new gear, rules, and morphs for uplifted characters.
- Continuity (retail $5): A one-shot scenario or a campaign kickoff. You awaken in a new morph with two weeks of your life missing, and only limited time to deal with a looming threat.
- The Devotees (retail $5): Pit your Firewall team against Nine Lives, the most ruthless syndicate of soul thieves in the system.

Join the fight to rescue Transhumanity from extinction -- but join soon! This Eclipse Phase Bundle revival ends Wednesday, January 7.

Did you love Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, or are Bruce Lee movies more your speed? Either way, Jack Norris's Tianxia will win you over. Until November 27th, Tianxia: Blood, Silk, & Jade is a bonus title in the Bundle of Holding's Bundle of Fate +2.

Tianxia (Vigilance Press) is a Fate -powered tabletop fantasy roleplaying game based on the wuxia sub-genre of martial arts adventure. (Norris's cited inspirations include Chinese classics like Outlaws of the Water Margin, the manhua comic series Fung Wan (Storm Riders), a long list of Hong Kong films, and video games such as BioWare's Jade Empire.) In wuxia (Chinese, "wandering warrior") the main characters aren't just master fighters. They're nearly superhuman, able to carve mountains with their fists and, with a good running start, leap canyons. Tianxia combines wuxia and elements of more down-to-earth kung fu stories, playing to one of Fate's strengths: taking heroes with unbelievable powers and grounding them in mundane life.

The Tianxia rulebook assumes you've already read Fate Core (also included in this offer), so it spends most of its 192 pages on setting, a long list of antagonists, and the martial styles characters can master. The setting is Shenzhou, a fantasy land with the timeless trappings of mythic China. The campaign's default area is the wide and well-populated province of Jiangzhou. Much action takes place in the capital city of Bao Jiang, with its restaurants, markets, and playhouses that boast great Aspects like "Out of the Way Corners" and "Strong Plum Wine." Characters like Fish-Eye Cheng, leader of the Blue Carp Brotherhood, and Heartless Ai, the brokenhearted ex-assassin, are sure to make an impression -- maybe a fist-shaped impression. Antagonists include Evil Eunuchs and White Widow Enforcers, as well as eight varieties of Dangerous Mobs. The Fierce Creatures bestiary presents rules for animals as player characters.

Martial artists can choose from 36 unique styles or create their own. Each style has an associated Form with strengths and weaknesses that can be invoked or compelled. Besides the techniques associated with Forms, there are also "Lost Techniques" like Drunken Immortal, Feast of the Golden Vampire, and Mountain-Shattering Shout. Obtaining such a powerful technique can be a quest in itself.

Tianxia makes a few minor rules adjustments to out-of-the-box Fate. It adds one new skill, Chi, the mastery of internal energies. Use Chi to enhance focus, become more resilient against attacks or heal faster, or power kung fu moves. The Jianghu scale ranks characters based on how much kung fu they know; each rank represents a significant rise in power. For instance, higher-ranked characters can move faster and can't be the target of Teamwork from lower-level opponents.

Like any Fate game, Tianxia is meant to be customized. Norris provides many ideas, from bonuses at character creation to Shén attitudes towards gender and sexuality. The GM's section in particular contains Campaign Aspects and other play options that let you distinguish your own Tianxia campaign from any other. Get started with any of four promising campaign/adventure seeds and an "adventure menu" of mix-and-match story ideas.

Tianxia: Blood, Silk, & Jade will please Hong Kong film buffs, Chinese history lovers, fans of the Dynasty Warriors video games, and anyone hungry for out-of-control Fate action. Get it before November 27th in the Bundle of Fate +2!
