Since last I wrote, Russia has invaded Ukraine. We join with the international community in condemning this action, and we support the Ukrainian people’s defiant stand in the face of this oppression. To that end, we’ll be donating 50% of all our sales for the next week to the International Red Cross’s Ukraine fund. And to encourage you to contribute, we’re extending our March Fo(u)rth GM’s Day sale until next Friday, March 11th – get 50% off all PDFs in our webstore with the code GMsDay2022.
NEW RELEASE: A Cigarette, A Blindfold, and You
Many of you have asked for sample adventures for The Yellow King RPG. We’ve already got one for the Paris setting (Sarah Saltiel’s elegant The Doors to Heaven, which you can pick up along with our other PWYW adventures here), so Gareth Ryder-Hanrahan’s been hard at work on one-shots for the other three settings. A Cigarette, A Blindfold, and You is the first of these – an adventure no less creepy and unnerving for its simplicity and ease of running. In this adventure (which includes pre-generated characters), PCs play guards assigned to firing squad duty in the Continental War of the 1940s, but over the days, the Carcosan influence seeps into their daily work. If you’ve been looking for some The Wars inspiration, grab this PDF.
Work in progress update: Swords of the Serpentine
The ink issues have been resolved with updated files, and the printers have gone back to work on the print book. They’ve got some backlogs at the moment, and their expected ship date is mid-May. We’ll send out an email before they ship out to confirm pre-orderers addresses. If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet, you may be interested to know that, due to increases in the print costs, we’ve had to push up the MSRP of the print book to $59.95/£49.95; however, it will remain at its existing $49.95/£39.95 for pre-orderers.
