Hey DLG Fans,
A design diary I wrote about the Savage Characters, Volume 1 has been published in a great e-zine, Savage Insider. I’d appreciate it if you took a look.
Many thanks to Chris at Frugal GM for the detailed review and 5 Stars! Couple items to clean up that he caught in the product so should be a new version soon.
Just a quick update. I’ve been spitting my time between three Dragonlaird Gaming projects:
1. Dark Ages and Dragon Gods I – I’ve been working on the setting and preparing for a major one-shot adventure in mid-July. I’m working up pre-gens using Will Herrmann’s Wild Card Creator with the intention that they express some of the good crunch and flavor of the setting. This process has enabled me to review the setting rules and generate some additional background content.
2. Dark Ages and Dragon Gods II – I’ve also been running an on-going play-by-post game in the DADG setting. As always the pace of the game is far slower than I’d like but we’re having fun and I’m using it to flesh out the setting further.
3. 2015 Dragonlaird Gaming Gamemasters Anthology – This is intended to be a cheap or even free book I’ll provide through DriveThruRPG full of Gamemaster advice from myself and other authors. Working through how to make it happen on a limited budget and this is back-burner until the #1 game is over with.
Participate in DriveThruRPG’s GM’s Day sale by picking up a copy of Savage Characters Volume 1 for yourself, your GM, or your friends.
Greetings Dragonlaird Gaming Fans,
After the successful launch of my product line with Savage Characters Volume 1, I’ve been focusing on promoting the product and planning follow-on activities. I’d appreciate any additional buzz that can be generated or leads I can follow up with to obtain more exposure for the product. It is very high quality and great value for the price.
As follow-ups I’m working on some concepts (short fiction or adventures) in support of the four settings which got their first glimpses in SCV1.
“A Touch of Frost” – an enigmatic patron sends our heroes to the ruins of Greece in search of a key to destroying the Dragon God in Rome. (Dark Ages and Dragon Gods)
“Death Comes to Black Water” – Southern Veterans and survivors of the Civil War brave the hostile and mystical West to hunt down the Union raiders who ruined their lives. The trail leads to the boom town of Black Water which has many secrets of its own. (Ghost Lands and Sixguns)
“Loose Cannons” – New York City is going to Hell, literally. A handful of made men are trying to stop it and now they have to hunt down rogue cops attacking the Families across the city.
“Last Flight Out” – A colony planet is being abandoned. Will a free trader crew with a broken ship be left behind when the Royal Stellar Navy carrier leaves for the last time? (Theta Ships and Iron Men)
DLG Artist Gordon Napier has a trailer out for a motion comic he’s created. Looks like a ton of genre-bending goodness!
Nothing is perfect in this world and we’ve found a few minor items to update in Savage Characters, Volume 1. We’ll be posting a new version to the file to DriveThruRPG very soon.
Currently in development is a story set in the Theta Ships and Iron Men universe which ties in some of the characters from Volume 1.
The wheels keep turning at Dragonlaird Gaming!
