A note from Greg Stolze


Greetings, “Better Angels” backers. Greg Stolze here. By now you’ve gotten your copies of “Better Angels” and are, I hope, enjoying the hell out of them. If you thought the game was clever, well-written, witty or otherwise amusing, I’d like to direct your attention to a different project that’s running right now. It’s called “A Softer Apocalypse."

Instead of a game about comics, I’m going in the opposite direction and making a comic about a game. Specifically my post-apocalypse superhero biopunk game “eCollapse,” which explores, undermines and reinvents ideas form all three of its source genres. I’m hoping to turn it into an ongoing web comic, with help from the curious and the generous. Hopefully, that’s you.

Cilck on the project, look at Nick Butler’s art, maybe read some of my fiction if you haven’t (there’s a giant heap of it at ) and decide if you want to see where I go with a story of desperation, revenge, and Tacoma.



NO SOUL LEFT BEHIND -- A Huge New Campaign for Better Angels

We are thrilled and a little afraid to announce NO SOUL LEFT BEHIND, a full-size campaign of 10 scenarios for Better AngelsNo Soul Left Behind is written by Caleb Stokes, who playtested the whole thing with Role Playing Public Radio and put every episode online for your enjoyment. 

It's at Kickstarter for the next 30 days. Succumb to temptation and back it now.

And the One Roll Bundle 

For the next seven days, Arc Dream Publishing's superhero games are at the Bundle of Holding. That means gamers can get some of our best work at a fraction of the usual cost. This is a great way to get our games in the hands of new players, so please help us spread the word about the Bundle and what makes it worthwhile.

And the Ennie Awards

You have just seven days left to vote in the Ennies. Our Dreamlands Call of Cthulhu campaign The Sense of the Sleight-of-Hand Man is up for Best Adventure. Please vote for it!

Thank you.

We're working on the Better Angels GM Screen. I'm about to send the text and layout to our graphic designer. Thanks to your feedback it will be a four-panel screen, each panel 8.5" tall by 11" wide.

A million thanks to gamers who helped us playtest No Soul Left Behind, the full-length Better Angels campaign by Caleb Stokes. Watch for its Kickstarter campaign very soon.

Yours in villainy,
