Savage Characters and New Projects

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)

Savage Characters updates…

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!

Savage Characters, Volume 1 now on sale

After much hard work and the contributions of friends new and old, Dragonlaird Gaming is pleased to announce publication of my first solo project, Savage Characters Volume 1. The journey began with a conversation with a new neighbor who turned out to be a very cool artist. It took many turns along the way from the high of getting license permission from Shane Hensley on the floor of the Origins convention to the grind of orchestrating all the pieces to the finish line.

Heather Miller has gotten pretty far with the layout of Savage Characters Volume One. Hoping to publish it to DriveThruRPG in August.

Savage Characters project update

Greetings Dragonlaird Gaming Fans!

Just a quick update on the Savage Characters Volume 1 project.  We’ve had to switch layout designers but are pleased to welcome Heather Miller to our team.  We’re already looking at drafts of covers and layouts.  My new target is to have Savage Characters Volume 1 published to before GenCon in August.

Once this project is up on that site, I can turn my attentions to supporting materials for the settings established in that product.  My primary focus will be Dark Ages and Dragon Gods with the potential to run a series of games in the setting at Origins 2015.

Watch here for sneak peeks of the covers and inside layouts before we unleash these Savage Characters on the world! :)

Soul Crimes: What happens when gangsters running a thoroughly corrupt New York City start facing true Evil from Beyond?

Theta Ships and Iron Men: The Brits discovered our way to the stars and the Royal Stellar Navy now deal handle diplomacy and trade with beautiful and ugly alien races, protecting human colonies, and fighting across the stars.
