Without much pre-launch hype, advertising or warning, we’ve released our second book in the Mutant Epoch line. The Mall of Doom adventure is available in print and PDF and already selling better than we hoped. What’s interesting is that some of the people buying it haven’t apparently bought the TME hub rules yet. Of course not all sales at RPGnow show the customers name, but still It makes me wonder if gamers collect stuff they don’t intend to play? I can see that with rule sets, as I bought the Pathfinder core rules but haven’t even rolled up a character yet, but to buy an adventure without owning the system to play it? That’s another thing.
At any rate, buyers of The Mall of Doom who are a
lso Society of Excavator members can go to the downloads by product page and grab a heap of free PDFs from the adventure including the 5 player handouts, six maps, new creature, new relics and two NPCs. But be warned, if you are not going to GM The Mall, then don’t spoil things for yourself by sneaking a peak a the important handouts and NPCs.
In other news, we are already well ahead of schedule on the full version of Pitford: Gateway to the Ruins, with the layout done. The 80 or so illustrations will be the next hurtle, as we are also aiming at ramping up to the release of Excavator Monthly magazine, to be release on the 15th of each month. Our current goal is to get issue 1 out for august 15th.
After the Pitford book is on the market in September,
we will commence work on the 200+ page Crossroads Region Gazetteer, and then get to the Mutant Beastiary One book.
Whew, there is a lot to do. I can’t tell you how much the fan support on the forums and here on the blog have helped motivate me and the rest of the recruits.
Oops. Website needs a tweak here and there, and t
he kids need supper.
