Folks, we are still gathering art on the many creatures present in the Rogue Mage RPG Game Master's Guide. We have Rick Hershey and Scott Harshbarger on the job while Peter Bradley works on the interior art to accompany the text and vignettes. I'll have to post some pictures to give you a glimpse at what's inside soon. Rick did some amazing work on the creatures of light and darkness, and Scott's been working on some characters from the actual novels.
Meanwhile, I've launched a new kickstarter for a Pathfinder book on playing lycanthropes called Bite Me! The Gaming Guide to Lycanthropes to be published through Misfit Studios. I've always had a weak spot for the furry folks--you may, of course know that, if you are a fan of the SpirosBlaak setting I co-published with Green Ronin Publishing back in the days of D&D 3.5--and I want to offer player options for creating gaming characters for them. My co-author will be Dawson Kriska, who worked with me on Journeys to the West, a Kobold Press book about island adventures. My favorite editor, Spike Y Jones, has agreed to join us on the project. Yay! If you are familiar with tabletop RPGs, take note that Sean K Reynolds of Paizo and Wolfgang Baur of Kobold Press will be writing some bits for the book, as will many of my gaming-community friends from Open Design projects. SC's Fat Goblin Games' Jason Stoffa and Rick Hershey, in particular, will be involved. I love those guys!
And, I've gotten Dave Gross, were-king fiction writer for Paizo Publishing and Wizards of the Coast, to agree to write a short story set in SpirosBlaak for the book. Dave published my first gaming work when he was editor-in-chief for DUNGEON magazine back in the day. He's just downright awesome.
If you like Pathfinder, my work, or Dave Gross' work, consider pitching in at $10 to get a copy of the pdf. There are also opportunities to pitch for the book's contents if you want to sign in at much higher levels.
As we close out on the Rogue Mage RPG Game Master's Guide, Faith Hunter and I are also cooking up a Rogue Mage ebook of short stories. It will be a month or two before we set that up, but we wanted to give you a heads up! And, of course, Faith will be writing a new Rogue Mage novel this year! Wohoo!
Thanks for all your support. We are so happy you made this RPG possible. You guys ROCK!
