Funding Achieved! Stretch Goals in Progress

We've made great progress in just a few days, and we're now crested the $4000 mark. The first stretch goal – Science and the Sea, featuring Manreia and the Discordian Sea – is firmly in our sights. We appreciate your contributions to date, but we're going to need continued help spreading the word about the project. Don't forget, as we hit stretch goals, your pledges become more valuable.

Accursed World of Morden Kickstarter Now Live

Since we first started blogging about Accursed in 2013, the setting has enjoyed tremendous support from its fans. The game's initial publication depended upon a crowdfunding campaign. Without your help, it never could have come to fruition. Two years later, we're reaching out for your support once more. We want to create a companion volume to Accursed that explores the World of Morden, and we need your help to realize that.

Upcoming Crowdfunding Campaign and Minor Release

We've previously mentioned that we have a series of World of Morden books in development. Next week, we'll be launching the crowdfunding campaign to help fund the additional artwork that they require. The initial goal will fund Frost and Fang, a book focusing on Steppengrad and Valkenholm. Notably, that book is already written, and backers will receive a draft of it as soon as they pledge.

Savage Lairs Fantasy Forests

“You want to go where?!”

Players are an unpredictable lot. You spend hours planning the perfect
adventures, then they ignore your carefully staged clues to head off
in a direction you had not prepared. Savage Lairs is here to help.

This book presents a range of sixty encounters all tailored to fit
within a typical fantasy forest. Each page presents a new scene that
offers a way to occupy the players while you try to figure out how to
adapt your masterwork to their unexpected actions. Some could lead to
a side quest or an unrelated adventure, but this is not necessary.
These encounters help you to occupy the heroes for a bit, while you
hurriedly readjust your main focus.

Savage Lairs Fantasy Forests is for use with any fantasy setting. It
makes use of the Savage Worlds game system and requires the Savage
Worlds Core Rules for use.

Savage Lairs Fantasy Forests is now available from DriveThruRPG for $10 in PDF.

Bundle of Nerves +3

Bundle of Holding asked us to participate in their Halloween promotions, and when we saw what they were including, we just had to jump on board. Starting with the most important aspect, 10% of the money raised goes to the National Center forMissing & Exploited Children. This is an organization dedicated to fighting some of our world's most horrifying monsters.
After that, customers can buy in at two different levels. At the base level ($9.95), buyers receive PDFs of Savage Worlds Deluxe Explorer's Edition as well as The Horror Companion. (Conveniently, the two books required to play Accursed!) They also receive Silent Legions from Sine Nomine Publishing, a modern Cthulhu game with mechanics in keeping with the OSR movement.
Buyers who buy at more than the threshold price (initially $19.95) receive a whole bunch more. First off, they receive Accursed. We're guessing you already know about that since you're viewing our site. They also receive Rippers and the Rippers Companion from Pinnacle, a brilliant setting that focuses on Victorian Monster Hunters. Finally, they receive Shadows of Esteren Book 1 Universe. This is a lavishly illustrated game setting of medieval gothic horror.
The folks at Bundle of Holding tell me that there's still more coming, and I'm excited to see it. Buyers who join in now get anything that might be added to the bundle later as well. However, that threshold price for bonus books does go up over time, so if you want in, it's better to buy early. The base offer is $40 in books for $10. The bonus offer is $100 in books for $20. I don't think you can go wrong with either, even if you already have some of those books.
Thanks for your attention, and please help us to spread the word about this great deal.

Old School Blue - Geomorphic Dungeon Tiles

We've just launched a new set of print-on-demand products, as part of Melior Via's Maps and Tools line.
There are currently four sets available:
Each tile is a six-inch square, with the grid marked out in the classic blue from old adventure maps. They are otherwise undetailed, so that they can be used for dungeons, space ships, office buildings, or any other combat map that your game needs. The back of each tile is a blank 6-inch grid, useful for quickly expanding any of the maps into a larger area.

Tiles do have a matte coating, which works well with dry-erase markers. It's easy quickly indicate room features like doors or traps, and then wipe it away when the encounter is complete.

Because of their small size and stack-ability, the tiles are quick to pack up and easy to lay down as the battlefield grows on your next game night.

Old School Blue Geomorphic Tiles are compatible with Blue Dungeon Tiles from Red Kobold Games.

I shot a quick video to give a brief overview of the tiles.
