Black Friday/Cyber Monday

For anyone who might not have noticed, I'm having a bit of a Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend sale over at RPGNow etc.

During this time you can pick up all three sets of the Colony 19 range for the price of one (when purchased as a bundle).

That's just $3.99 for them all.

HERE is the link to the bundle page.

East Eyrie map-pack progress report

I'm still hard at work on this, and I'm still aiming for a December release (hopefully early December) - but in the meantime I thought I'd post a quick picture of the overall layout of the fortress as it currently stands:

When finished, the booklet will contain around forty maps (examples of which are shown in THIS post), and a couple of extra pages that'll give a brief history of the fortress itself (for use with the AoS setting) - though this is going to be system neutral 'fluff' (for want of a better word) that can be used or ignored as folks see fit.

So I'm hoping that the book will prove useful to folks who are just interested in getting their hands on a bunch of fortress maps, as well as those interested in the AoS campaign setting.

Anyway, that's it for this little update back to work!

Xmas give-away!

It's hard to believe that this blog has been going for almost a year now, and during that time has amassed around 10,000 views.

So, in the weeks leading up to the one year anniversary (and coincidentally, the weeks leading up to Christmas) I'm planning to select a 'follower' at random (probably by making a list and then using a online die roller - such as the one over at invisible castle) and giving that person the choice of any one product from the RPGNow store for free (excluding any bundles).

The first draw will be on December 1st, the second draw will be on the 8th, the third draw will be on the 15th, and the final draw will be on the anniversary itself - the 22nd.

The only catch is that you have to use a registered account (i.e. 'guest' posts are not allowed for obvious reasons), and that you post a simple 'count me in' message in the comments section of this post so that I know that you would like to be included.

Good luck!

Age of Shadow Character Sheets

Since printer ink is possibly the most expensive liquid in the known world, I've made THESE available through lulu for folks who don't want the hassle of printing their own.

However, please note that the sheets themselves are exactly the same as those found in the core rulebook - so if you're happy printing your own there is nothing new to see here.

Price-wise I've kept the booklet as inexpensive as possible (as I'm only really offering these for convenience sake - rather than for any real profit), but it does mean that you can now get everything needed to play the game (apart from dice) at the click of a mouse button.

Cafe press store now open!

I've taken a look around the cafe press website - mainly to see if any of the products they produce can be used for gaming purposes, but also to see if I can get a (roughly A3 sized) poster map of the Age of Shadow world printed out and available for purchase (as lulu etc. doesn't seem to be able to do this). So if you check out the sidebar to the right you'll see that I've opened a cafe press store as a little experiment.

Admittedly there's not a lot on offer at the moment, but this will be amended in due time.

November Update

I had been hoping to release my latest map-pack today, but since its only about half finished, it probably won't see the light of day until the beginning of next month (fingers crossed). However it is a rather ambitious project (and one I've been wanting to do for quite some time), and features multi-level maps of all the major building/towers within a large fantasy castle/fortress.

The fortress itself is that of East Eyrie (from the Age Of Shadow setting), but it can of course be used to represent any major fortification in most fantasy settings ...and if you are interested to see my progress thus far, here's a quick look at the pages that are pretty much finished:

As I say, I think I'll be releasing this as just a map-pack to begin with ...with the possibility of a companion booklet to go along with it in the future (that looks at East Eyrie in a little more detail).

* * * * *

I'd also like to thank everyone that took advantage in the Halloween sale - and I hope you all enjoy using the Colony 19 tiles (or at least find a good use for them).

* * * * *

And finally, today sees the release of Purple Mountain I: Temple of the Locust Lord ...the first part of a (Pathfinder compatible) mega-dungeon by Purple Duck Games - and the reason that I'm particularly exited about this project is because I have been asked to provide all of the dungeon maps for the series.

And to accompany this 20 part mega-dungeon CSP will also be offering all of these layouts as separate battlemat scale maps so that the entire dungeon can be represented at a scale of 1 square = 1 inch.

So if that sounds like something you might be interested in, you can get the first level of the pathfinder adventure from Purple Duck Games' DriveThruRPG and RPGNow storefronts, and the Battle-Map version of the dungeon can be found HERE (via RPGNow) or HERE (via DriveThruRPG).
