Freebie Spotlight: General Equipment Reference

This week's Freebie Spotlight highlights the last of the equipment references planned for release, providing useful descriptions for all of the general equipment lacking descriptive blocks in the Saga Machine core rulebook--clothing, food and travel--as well as rearranging all items into alphabetical order for their category. Just click on the following link (General Equipment Reference) to get this freebie. And next week, look forward to either another useful reference sheet, or our first spotlight on alternate and optional rules. Wait and see....

Freebie Spotlight: Saga Machine SRD

As has been mentioned before (although maybe not on the TabBlog itself), Saga Machine is an open role-playing system, released under the popular Open Game License. That means anyone can take and use most of Saga Machine (those parts designed "Open Game Content") in their own games and publications, so long as they both give us credit and include the Open Game License themselves. To aid in the ability to do so (and to have a handy online reference for Saga Machine's rules), this week we present the Saga Machine System Reference Document. Just click the appropriate link to the section in question, and read it all right on our website....

Freebie Spotlight: Encounter Worksheet

This week's Freebie Spotlight puts aside the equipment references for a bit, and instead provides a useful aid to game masters designing combat encounters. It is the Encounter Worksheet, a handy sheet to have when planning or running a party through such an encounter, as it provides an organized way to track the antagonists' stats, health, composure, etc.--as well as providing a place for other notes concerning the initiative order, terrain obstacles, and so on....

Freebie Spotlight: Low-Tech Armor & Accessories

Following in the spirit of our last freebie spotlight, the Low-Tech Weapons Descriptions Sheet, this week we present our next freebie: the Low-Tech Armor & Accessories Descriptions Sheet, providing fully organized tables of the low-tech armor and accessories listed in the Saga Machine core rulebook, as well as full descriptions for each entry. Useful for any sort of low-tech campaign, or even if you simply don't know off the top of your head what splintmail is! Check it out....

First Quarter 2009 Tab Update

It's a brand new year and things are looking good for the Tab Creations Collective. This last year was marked by the release of Tab-System Classic, a revision of our legacy card-based system dating back to the originalSwords & Arrows Role-Playing Game, and the rest of the year was mostly spend in the development of our brand new house system Saga Machine, which was released on schedule in late November. With these two systems out of the way, it clears up our schedule for working on what has always been the fun part--settings. Finally, we have begun our ongoing online support of Saga Machine, with weekly "Freebie Spotlights," presenting tidbits of Saga Machine bonus content, appearing during any week there is not otherwise an important Tab announcement (such as this week's quarterly Tab Update)....
