I'd still like to get Megan Robertson's Book of Shadows unlocked. This is a player-focused book to help bring the storytelling element of the trappings of witches of folklore or historical tradition. There will be room for a player to customize the book. This is also a great place for backers pledging to contribute to make their mark.
Sorry that you do not like the art. I am a huge fan of Jacob Blackmon's work. I've actually had more people say they do not like the Peter Bradley cover.
As to my open projects, Bite Me! Will be completed in a few weeks. I have 2 PDFs from that project out now. The Medusa project grew tremendously with people wanting to contribute to the book, so I still have pieces coming in. I will be releasing chunks of that in small PDFs.
If you look at the projects, you will note that I've maintained communication and have not abandoned them. Some life upheavals slowed down Bite Me! But it is moving forward. I hope that answered your concerns.
We need just 1 more person to hit the 125 marker to unlock the "Direlock."
Also, the Lord Rogue Genius has offered to step in with a slew of witch-related PDFs to add to our project to increase backer numbers. Those at $25+ can get some very cool things. I'll reveal latter tonight just what those are.
We are nearing 110 backers! Better get writing.
I'm away at ConCarolinas as the Gaming Guest of Honor this weekend, though, so I'm not sure how much time I'll be spending checking email and the Internet with all the cool events going on.
Wereblooded and Playing Lycanthropes are two different PDFs. The former introduces palatable race who have the blood of lycanthropes in their veins, but who are not channelled. The latter provides a way to include lycanthrope characters in your game without upsetting character balance. This includes playing natural misanthrope. These particular Bite Me! PUFfs are pieces of the book that will be Bite Me: The Gaming Guide to Lycanthropes that was its own Kickstarter and is being offered on the Strange Brew one for those who missed out. The advanced races that will be released over the next few months are not part of that book, but they will eventually be collected into a book of their own.
Hope that helps.
I have a 9.99 bundle of creatures valued at $56 up on RPGnow/Drivethru. Like Rick Hershey, I have an ill spouse whom I must provide for, and I could use a little help in paying for his doctor trips and 17 medicines. The bundle includes creatures for Pathfinder, Castles & Crusades, Mutants & Masterminds, and Savage Worlds. These are from Christina Stiles, Presents,Rogue Genius Games, Misfit Studios, and Louis Porter Jr. Design. It is a good deal, and I hope you will support it and/or spread the word. Thank you.
Legal issues would prevent someone from writing it, I would imagine. Erica Balsley runs this Savage Worlds game at various NC cons. It is a blast!
I've made the post. We add in Forest Guardian Press's generous offer when we reach 125 backers. The Direlock Base Class received Endzeitgeist's rare Seal of Approval, so this is an excellent addition to the rewards.
I'll have a post from Morgan Boehringer and Christos Gurd about their inspirations for their piece of this project--which yet remains out of reach. Don't you want some War Witches and Hexmavens? I LOVE that title!
Spread the word. Let's get the backer count up!
Sounds great to me!
I've got to get a post out today on the project!
Right. It will be OGL, using Pathfinder rules. Most people get that saying 3.75 is saying Pathfinder, so we just created a logo with that on it. We used it for Bite Me! Playing Lycanthropes recently, as I included a little risqué picture of a were mantis eating after mating. The art and subject matter will be something that Paizo will want removed from their name, and I totally respect that.
Yes, we'd have to make sure whatever we include with the compatibility logo on it will have to meet its standards. That may mean putting material in a different PDF--or changing the logo.
He will be working on an archetype he is calling ravaged vessel for the warlock. I'll have some more information on this posted to our KS soon, and then I'll release more information about it here. I'm happy to have him on board!
I generally play one character for a long length of time, so I haven't gotten to play the 3PP classes, let alone most of the core ones. I thought many of the things Marc Radle did for Kobold Press looked totally interesting, though.
Btw, not to derail the thread, but Misfit Studios is doing a witch/warlock kickstarter--in case you are interested. We just got Alex Augunas to work with us, since he's a Master of Pact Magic. Marc Radle will be working on something, as well, for the book, and we'll have Owen Stephens' The Talented Witch to offer backers in June or July.
Here's what I posted on the KS update:
Margherita Tramontano, better known as Bardess on the Paizo Messageboards, has agreed to contribute something to Strange Brew if we reach 100 backers today. We need 7 (now 5) to make that happen. What you may not know is that Margherita, along with Will Wells, is working on the Book of Passion for me, a Pathfinder book that will tackle the issues discussed in The Book of Erotic Fantasy done for D20 back in the day. They have over 100 pages at the moment, and they both believe there are tie-in possibilities with Strange Brew. I'm curious to see what those would be, myself.
I you are interested in finding out what they might be, reach out to several friends to join the Strange Brew kickstarter. I think it will be quite intriguing!
Also, she and Will think their book might make a very excellent stretch goal book. Let us know what you think about that.
Added here: For obvious reasons, Bardess's book will not bear the compatibility logo. It will have a 3.75 logo on it.

Yes, I'm vaguely aware of that book. I think it tried to take a comical approach to the topic. We are dead serious. :)
Misfit Studios: Misfit takes an in-depth look at topics and classes in greater depth. For instance, the Bite Me! line looks at lycanthropes and their kin for use in your PF games. The upcoming Strange Brew: The Ultimate Witch & Warlock delves into those classes, expanding the possibilities at your gaming table. We have one in the works for shamans, as well. We also do some smaller PDFs on Forces of Darkness. We'll be revamping SpirosBlaak for Pathfinder, as well.
Rogue Genius Games: There is more than just crunch from RGG. Check out the Waysides line. Plus, I'll be releasing an adventure by Mike Welham in the near future.

Thanks for your post.
Yep, I've shown up at many a table as the only woman there. My most unusual game was where there was one guy, the 5 other women player, and a woman GM. It was a Savage Worlds game of Ponyville Horror.
Btw, the book has a 5-star review over at RPGNow.com. Congrats to Rob and Rich and Jeff!
If you are on the fence about this product, the review just may sway you--we hope so!
Also, if you haven't checked out Ben McFarland's Bite Me! Wereblooded, you will want that PDF as well. Bite Me! More Wereblooded by Mike Welham is on deck after Bite Me! Skindancers.
Unleash the Inner Beast with Bite Me! Playing Lycanthropes.
Bite Me! Playing Lycanthropes presents rules and advice for playing natural and afflicted lycanthropes in the Pathfinder system, as well as a new and customizable natural shapeshifting race balanced against other advanced races, all written and designed by two-time Ennie-nominee, Robert H. Hudson, Jr.
Everyone knows the story about the character that failed their saving throw and contracted lycanthropy, messing the whole game up. That’s because they didn’t have this book to help them! Written for players and GMs alike, this is the definitive work on the issues involved in playing and GM'ing for someone who howls at the moon, and how to work with them to create characters and storylines that mean when you tell your story about the guy that contracted lycanthropy.
The response will be “Cool!” instead of “Oh man, I’m so sorry!”
A new race for your Pathfinder RPG campaign, natural lycanthropes offer players and GMs a way to bring lycanthropes into their campaigns from the start without overshadowing other races, and the extensive discussion of potential issues and ways to handle them will help make games involving lycanthropes easy to run and play.
What You get with Bite Me! Playing Lycanthropes
Within the pages of Bite Me! Playing Lycanthropes you'll find:
Pick up a copy of Bite Me! Playing Lycanthropes, and get your shift together!
Timothy Brannan has provided me a preview copy of The Witch, a book that is added in at the $25 tier and above on the Strange Brew Kickstarter.
Take a look at The Witch.
The $25 tier and above currently includes:
The Talented Witch PDF by Owen K.C. Stephens
I'll be adding something else to the bundle soon!

Wow! Not only tons of responses from the Pathfinder community, but several from the actual authors and publishers as well. I'm very happy to have discovered this little community and the wonderful realm that is known as 3pp.
You'll find that we 3PPs are generally very excited about our work, and we LOVE to talk about it. :) Additionally, many of us are fans of each other's works. You can't go wrong with any of the companies mentioned in this thread. While I'm with Rogue Genius Games, Misfit Studios, and Christina Stiles Presents, I've had the pleasure to work with Kobold Press for several years, and I'll be doing some work for LPJ in the upcoming months. I missed out on working with Frog God (due to timing issues), unfortunately--I hope they approach me again one day,as I am an absolute fan of theirs. Don't forget Purple Duck Games while you are out there looking about.
Also, I've got Owen K.C. Stephens looking over what we have on the warlock so far. He'll offer up some suggestions on it. I'm hoping that if he likes it a great deal, I can talk him into writing the Talented Warlock as a stretch goal. Fingers crossed.
