Catalogue 9 (plus freebies) out now   Leave a comment

Ok, so after two years I have finally produced a new catalogue, and it’s now available from wargamevault and drivethruRPG (and hopefully from wargamedownloads soon as well). As ever, all our game products are described in detail, with some insights from the author (ie me!) and quotes from customer reviews.

I am also maintaining the tradition of including a free game with each catalogue – or rather two free games in this case. Just like Catalogue 8, the new one features a mini-RPG scenario written for Argor FRPG followed by a linked mini-wargame. Together they’re called Escape from the Trow. You can play either as stand-alone games if you like.

To download your FREE copy just go here!

PLATINUM!   Leave a comment

popular_platinum

What’s even better than gold? Platinum of course! So, if I was pleased that The GM’s Planet-Building Handbook reached Gold seller status at drivethruRPG.com, you can imagine how I felt when, little more than a week later, it moved on to Platinum! This is the top level, currently attained by only 0.93% of the products that drivethruRPG offer.

If I may boast just a little, a lot of work went into researching this product and finding ways to make it as accessible and usable as possible while keeping it grounded in science. I’m really pleased so many customers have enjoyed it.

If you’re curious, you can find out more about it here.

GOLD!   Leave a comment

popular_gold

I’m VERY pleased to announce our first ever title going Gold at drivethrurpg.com. Yes, The GM’s Planet-Building Handbook has reached the Gold seller award level. That puts it in the top 2.81% of all drivethrurpg.com titles in terms of sales (yes, that’s a very precise percentage and no, I don’t know why that’s the criterion!).

Obviously I’m very proud to have a product reach this milestone! If you’re interested in a resource that helps you quickly and easily design a believable inhabited planet (for a mere $3.95, I might add), then why not do what many have done before you and check it out? Just click on the image below!

This week sees the guys and gals at drivethrupg/RPGnow run their annual GM’s Day Sale, with discounts on all GM aids and resources. All our RPG resources are discounted, so this is a good week to check them out!

But more than that, our sci-fi resource The GM’s Planet-Building Handbook has been selected for a special ‘world building bundle’. This bundle features three world-building resources, all yours for just $5.95.  That’s a discount of 80% on non-sale prices! In effect, you’ll be getting The GM’s Planet-Building Handbook for just 81 US cents (which I think is 59p or 66 Euro cents).

Update   Leave a comment

It has been a long time coming, but I’m starting early play tests of a new free mini-game to include in Catalogue 9. Same format as Catalogue 8: an RPG mini-scenario written for Argor rules, followed by a mini-wargame. The wargame can either follow-on from the events of the scenario or be played as stand-alone. More news when the catalogue nears completion!

Freebie reminder!   Leave a comment

Don’t forget, if you download our utterly free catalogue you get two free games with it: an Argor FRPG mini-scenario AND a mini-wargame. You can either play them in combination (with the scenario outcome affecting the battle) or as stand-alone games. You need to have the rules for Argor to play the scenario, but the wargame comes complete with its own rules.

Get Catalogue 8 while you can: I’m working on the freebie for Catalogue 9, and once that’s done Catalogue 8 – and its free games – will be withdrawn.

Just click on the image below to go to our store at drivethruRPG, where you can download the catalogue for free.

Announcing ‘Further Vistas: Stars & Systems’   Leave a comment

Yes, finally, we have a new product out! As mentioned in the last update, it’s a follow-up to 2011’s Distant Vistas (2011? Where did the time go!). Distant Vistas is a sci-fi RPG resource that gives a GM a broad introduction to a sector of space: as the name suggests, Further Vistas: Stars & Systems (hereafter FV:S&S to save typing!) builds on the star systems introduced in Distant Vistas. While Distant Vistas mentioned 25 star systems, full details were only given for four of them. FV:S&S completes that work, giving full details of all 25 stars and their planetary systems. Details of each planet are given, with information on any intelligent inhabitants and any significant military hardware they may have. There’s also a bit of history given to put the whole sector in context.

As with Distant Vistas, we hope FV:S&S will be of some help for GMs seeking that bit of inspiration for their next sci-fi campaign setting. And it’s all yours for just $2.95!

Click on the image below to have a look at the product at drivethrurpg.com, where you can see a free preview of the first few pages if you want.
