Pre-order now - The Silurian Age for Doctor Who RPG!  Also available in PDF! 
The Doctor and his companions often venture forwards in time, into the far future of humanity, where spaceships ply the stars and adventure can be found on even the smallest moon. But what about… backwards? To a time before there was any humanity, to a time when the Earth was roamed by dinosaurs and another species laid claim to it: the Silurians. 
This supplement for the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game contains rules and background for visiting prehistoric Earth, including stats for all manner of different dinosaurs. For the convenience of the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game gamesmaster, the dinosaur bestiary gathers together creatures that have appeared in other Vortex System titles, which now appear together in one volume for the first time. It also contains an in-depth look at the Silurian race, including a ready-made Silurian city to visit.

11th Doctor Sourcebook cover

When Amelia Pond was seven-years old, she had an imaginary friend – the raggedy Doctor who crashed into her garden in his blue box. When she grew up, on the night before her wedding, her imaginary friend came back to take her on the adventure of a lifetime. Travel to Venice, into the heart of a crashed spaceship, visit the White House and Area 51 and journey to the centre of the TARDIS. Save the world, get married, meet the TARDIS in human form and team up with past incarnations to save Gallifrey… but what doom awaits on the Fields of Trenzalore?
Celebrating the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, this Sourcebook explores the Eleventh Doctor’s adventures on Earth and beyond. With detailed information on all the allies, enemies, aliens and gadgets that he encounters, as well as examining each of his adventures, the book contains a wealth of material for the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game, and is also a fact-packed resource for fans of the show!
Just remember – bow ties are cool.

The Lure of Venus

Venus. The Emerald Planet. A planet of unimaginable wealth, power, freedom, fame, adventure, immortality. Can you escape its lure or will you fall victim to its dangers?
We’re pleased to announce the next supplement for the Rocket Age Roleplaying GameThe Lure of Venus – and to show off Jon Hodgson’s striking cover. Rocket Age is our fast-paced retro sci-fi roleplaying game of adventure among the stars.

The steamy jungles of Venus hide all manner of mysteries – and dangers – beneath their thick canopies, from ancient cities to deadly flora and fauna. Explorers look to penetrate their shady depths while corporations seek to exploit the bounty of the Ishtar Range, something the natives Venusians will savagely resist.
The Lure of Venus contains a complete gazetteer of the alien world, including an in-depth look at Venusian Concordats as well as the planet’s many colonies. There’s also a look at the savage Venusians’ high-tech forebears, the Erisians, and all manner of nasty wildlife, new equipment, occupations and more besides.
Can our heroes survive Venus, or will they be lost forever in its jungles?

DoctorWhoRPG Howtofly
Is this the same game as Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space?
It is the same great game! Because we’ve got all sorts of exciting plans for our range of Doctor Who games, we've updated the name to make it as clear as possible what it is when it's on a shelf next to some of the exciting new things we have coming up.
I already have the Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space boxed set – do I need to buy this rulebook to continue playing?
Not at all! While we’ve fully updated the new rulebook with imagery from the latest series of Doctor Who, as well as new monsters, characters and gadgets, the game that you know and love remains the same as it always has done!
What happened to the Limited Edition Core Rulebook?
It was printed in limited numbers and quickly sold out! If you have a copy of the Limited Edition – well done, they’re exceedingly rare nowadays so hold onto it! We've heard a whisper that there's a slim chance we might unearth some unsold copies, but they'll be in short supply.
Is the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game still compatible with all the supplements?
Yes! There’s already a fantastic range of supplements for the Doctor Who Roleplaying Game, so we made sure that the new core rulebook works perfectly with all of them.
Is there a way for me to get the new material without buying the rulebook?
Just like we did with previous regenerations of the game we’re working on a free update PDF that will provide you with the new rules material – including the new characters and monsters – without you having to buy the whole rulebook again.  But we think you'll want the standalone hardcover.
"So all of time and all of space is sitting out there. A big blue box. Please don't even argue."

#RPGaDay2015 Day 23: Perfect Game for You

The Doctor Who: Adventures in Time and Space RPG is pretty much perfect for me.

  The Third Doctor Fourth Doctor Sourcebook

First of all I love the setting. Who doesn't love Doctor Who?! Second, by the nature of the setting, one can have pretty much anything happen any time and anywhere.

The other major reason is because of the game mechanics. I find the Vortex system quite suitable for my gaming needs and likes.
