Four new lifepath sets: Roden, Great Spiders, Trolls and Great Wolves, complete with new skills, spells and traits.

Dozens of illustrated monsters! Some classic, like the Giant and the Dragon, and some unique, like the Chiropteran and Hsigo, but all steeped in that distinctive Burning Wheel flavor!

Plenty of suggestions for integrating monsters into your existing campaign and for starting new ones rife with creatures.

The Monster Burner builds on the foundation provided in the Burning Wheel and the Character Burner. Familiarity with the Burning Wheel Fantasy Roleplaying System is suggested for full enjoyment.

The Monster Burner is now in its second printing. This printing incorporates all of the current errata and makes the book completely compatible with Burning Wheel Revised.

Back Cover Blurb: The Burning Wheel is an award winning fantasy roleplaying game in which players take on the roles of vibrant, dynamic characters whose very beliefs drive the story forward.

Starting with a simple d6 die pool mechanic, this game intuitively builds on its core concepts, evoking a pitch and tenor in play uncommon in roleplaying games. This book details solid, dramatic systems for task resolution, advancement, trials of belief, tests of nerve, searing social conflict, dangerous sorcery, miraculous faith, and brutal, gut-wrenching martial combat. Behind the dice, player decisions drive the game's systems. The choices tangibly affect every outcome, from glorious victory to ignominious defeat.

The mechanics are presented in an easy-to-read writing style, with plenty of insight and advice from the designer. If you¡¦re not careful, Burning Wheel will change the way you play roleplaying games.

Ken Hite named The Burning Wheel the Best New RPG in 2003. Reviewers on Gaming Report.com, RPG.net, Silven.com, Realms.org and have hailed it as 'excellent', 'impressive', 'innovative', and, most importantly, 'fun'.

Try it, be tested and judge for yourself.

Back Cover Blurb: The time has come: Choose your side or be swept into oblivion. Will you fight for the Mahdi-Emperor with his fanatical jihadi warriors as they seek to remake the galaxy in their own image? Will you help them burn out the hives of these ancestor worshippers who claim that the entirety of a man’s worth is written in his genetic heritage—infidels who claim that a fortunate, select few are bred to wealth and power and the rest are born only to servitude and slavery in their cause? Will you fight against such oppression? God has ordained the struggle holy! Will you raise your sword in the defense of the ancient and glorious nobility who have ruled mankind since before Terra was lost? Will you fight for the nobility who claim the blood of heroes and the mandate of the ancestors? Will you spend your life to defeat the tyrannical spread of savage religious oppression and a merciless theocracy? Or will you heed the words of the Matriarchs, play both sides against the middle, and salvage what genetic material you can from this disastrous war caused by a man too willful to obey the precepts of the Sisterhood that made him what he is? Choose now, be burned and forever changed. Best Supplement of the Year “This captures Frank Herbert’s Dune perfectly, with the serial names only lightly colored over (not even filed off).” —2005 Indie RPG Awards. It’s as clear-eyed as anything Luke does, and it adds Vehicles, Propaganda, and (brilliant) Ancestry rules to the basic Burning Wheel system. —Ken Hite, September 2005

Production Notes: Printed at Lightning Source in Tennessee. Originally conceived as a small handout for Burning Wheel by Richard Soto.
Back Cover Blurb: It was an age of peace and tranquility that crashed to a close with a war so violent it shattered the foundations of Japan. It toppled the old imperial order and gave rise to the Shogun. An era containing the zenith of art and culture, but the nadir of strife and suffering. It was the twilight of one epoch and the dawn of another. It was the Heian era, and Japan would never be the same.

In this new supplement from Burning Wheel Headquarters, you play fearsome bushi trapped between honor and shame, wise Shinto priests who seek to placate the spirits who protect Nihon, powerful Buddhist monks who pray for the souls of the dead while plying strong influence at court, and powerful courtiers battling for control of the failing state. Whichever role you choose to undertake, you will determine the fate of the era: Will Nihon walk her doomed path or will history be changed? Will the state survive or will it descend into anarchy? Will the emperor retain his rule or will the samurai rise and claim his power? You are at the center of this maelstrom and you will decide!

This 212-page book contains a Clan Burner to help your group design a campaign for this setting, five new lifepath settings, four new emotional attributes, 100 new traits, more than 30 new skills, ten new Japanese monsters, six new forms of natural magic, Feats of Valor, challenges of honor, rules of etiquette and the poetic Duel of Verse. Plus dozens of new illustrations, and fiction by Robin D. Laws!
