About

These are the books that you've demanded. And we've assembled an all-star roster of talent to bring them to you. All we need now is a show of support to make these dreams (and nightmares) into reality.

This Kickstarter project will fund no fewer than four separate books. Three of these are long-form prose fiction books, that have been out-of-print for a long, long while. We'd also like to produce a new book that's been a fan request for quite a while: a book of strange creatures and bizarre flora that have never seen before. And that's just the beginning.

In the remote corners of wilderness, in the far islands of undiscovered country, the darkest and palest of the thickets... there be monsters. To date, IRONCLAW has told stories about the elite masters far removed from the squalid villages below, all fighting their petty battles over power and money. BOOK OF MONSTERS introduces far darker things that can't be reasoned with.

The Book of Monsters project is led by Tempe O'Kun (Nordguard, Sixes Wild, Windfall) and Ursula Vernon (Digger, It Made Sense At the Time, the Sumatran Biting Pear).

In the course of Ironclaw's bronze history, we were fortunate to publish three novels. These books have long since been out of print and unavailable.  But no more! Your pledges will let us bring these books back, and better than ever. Fully revised, newly-typeset, and formatted for both print media and digital versions.

The Book of Legend project is led by Tempe O'Kun (Nordguard, Sixes Wild, Windfall) and Norman Rafferty (Ironclaw, Myriad Song, Urban Jungle.)


 With your support, we'll be able to bring more people on board. Long-time favorites such as Jon Ascher (Ironclaw, Urban Jungle), Erin van Hiel (Dream-Carver), Trent Halvorsen (Scars) and the proverbial more. We also have the support of OneBookShelf.com, with their DriveThruRPG and DriveThruFIction networks for distribution.

Making these books has been a dream of ours, too. But it's been difficult assembling the talent to make it possible. Now, the stars are right, and we're lucky to have a dream team of award-winning authors, artists, and designers to bring it to you.

Risks and challenges

Sanguine Productions' history speaks for itself. Since 2003, we've worked with our supporters to bring them the best in alternative and independent games and fiction. We have a long history of taking your support and folding it back into the projects. We would've made these books sooner, but it wasn't until now that we could assemble the talent that will make these books to the standard of quality that you've come to expect from Sanguine. And it's all because of your support.
