Greetings one and all and welcome to the latest Throne Report, Mystical Throne Entertainment’s online newsletter posted around the middle of every month. This online newsletter is meant to keep all our fans informed about what we’re working on, what’s been released, important announcements, and a look at what’s coming up.

You may have noticed some changes to the home page. The banners have been switched out to reflect our new product catalog focus going forward, highlighting Shadowed Earth, Multi-System Supplements, and Family Gaming. All categories have been updated as well and some new quick links are available in banner form on the right column (EGS, Savage Worlds, and Legend).
SWADE conversion guides have been slowly created and added to all downloads on DriveThruRPG and this website. Ancient World, Judgment Day, and Mythos are done; Mercenary Breed is half done. These are not comprehensive revisions to the settings but rather simple conversion guides allowing you to use the existing content with SWADE without having to sift through the book and identify the changes yourself. They are all in printer-friendly format and easy to follow with all changes highlighted in red.
The next release will end up being Tabletop Gaming Guide to: Five Points. The Psionics book requires a lot of writing with the new outline I’ve created and thus I’m going to move it to after Five Points. This new iteration will include EGS, SWADE, and Shadowed Earth How to Guides.
Judgment Day 3rd edition is in development. This SWADE-compatible edition will be a complete redesign of the character mechanics (such as Inquisitional Edges) and setting presentation to take full advantage of SWADE and narrow the focus of the setting within the core setting guide. The 2nd edition book was still too much like a toolkit and not a fully fleshed out setting; that will not be the case on this next edition. This does mean that previous books will not be compatible without significant changes to the content.
Don’t forget to visit the Shadowed Earth Online content and the Encyclopedia Chaotica:
There are no updates to our family gaming products.
Entropic Gaming System
Entropic Science Fiction has been sent off for editing. I am very happy with how this finished and excited to see the finished product. This new, standalone core rulebook will become the framework for all future standalone core rulebooks. Going forward, the SRD provides the mechanics, but is no longer necessary to play each game. The core mechanics, tweaked to match the material, will be provided in each core rulebook; GMs will still want to download the SRD to take advantage of the additional information it provides, but it’s not necessary. Additionally, the EGS 2.0 version of Judgment Day will be a complete standalone game built using the updates being made for the SWADE edition and the core rulebook framework from Entropic Science Fiction. This includes minor updates to the mechanics to match the source material.
Entropic Guides: Warfare has been released in PDF format and the paperback proofing copy has been ordered. While the root of the mechanics is the same, this EGS 2.0 version completely changes the formatting and presentation of the mechanics to match the new SRD. Additionally, some of them have been simplified and better explained to make them more user-friendly. Finally, all worksheets have been updated to the new EGS 2.0 design.
