This is sad news in many ways, but I hope you go on to greater things. Best wishes, lady!

Looks like an interesting and great product!

Slightly off-topic: shouldn't Paris be mentioned as an editor of WayFINDER?

Ruyan.

Ack! You are correct! I had something else on the brain when I wrote that.

That is not just a "gamer girl" problem.

It isn't. The book was initially targeted at women gamers. This is a section of what is to come. We are working on a gender-neutral cover, as well.

Thanks, Liz!

Intriguing. Is there any limit to the number of participants? And do we get college credit? :)

First, congrats to Nick for doing this! My university is just now looking into Continuing Ed, so this is an idea I might steal.

Second, I am just about to complete running a course for college credit at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC. It is called WRIT311X: Writing Narrative for Tabletop Role-Playing Games. My students built a 64-page gaming supplement over the course of the class. I'm going to see about publishing it.

It may be something I move to an online platform at some point. Winthrop is accredited through SACS.

Happiest of birthdays, Kobold Overlord! May your day be beyond wonderful. :)

Yay, Dan!

We appreciate the reviews, guys!

I concur with Steve Geddess! Wes did a wonderful job on this.I very much enjoyed the characters and their situations, and I do hope we get to read more of their continuing adventures.

Face it, RPGs are a tough market. Whenever companies upgrade to a new edition, they risk splintering their fan base. The fact that Paizo has managed to successfully grow in this market is a testament to Lisa Stevens's business savvy, the skills and knowledge of the company's other leaders, and the staff's ability to make interesting, quality product. With great customer service added to the mix, a phenomenal company has been built. Why risk losing that? There is plenty more to explore with the system as it is, so I don't see them changing things up at this time with a 2.0. If there comes a time when it makes business sense, it will happen.

I've been editing for many years in the RPG industry, and .01/word is about average, especially for large projects. RPGs are very niche, so they don't pay what professionals get paid in other industries. Writing for PDF projects generally pays .01/word, as well, as you are very lucky if you sell 100 copies of something, so it is difficult to recoup your money. Some companies pay more, of course.

As for art, try to use stock art when possible. Many game companies and individuals sell rights to use those rather cheaply. See Purple Duck Games, Misfit Studios, Rogue Genius Games, and Fat Goblin Games for folks who have things available--I even have a few things under Christina Stiles Presents. If you pay for created items, that is where your main cost will be.

Layout prices vary from $1-$5 per page in my experience. Of course, if you do the writing and layout, you save money. I have yet to learn the layout process myself. One day.

Hope that helps.

Mike, I think your wererats should be ready by the New Year. I'm happy to supply 6 winners with a copy when it becomes available.

Sounds very interesting! Congrats on making this, Alexander. I'll put this on my to-buy list.

Thanks for the review!

Yay, finally glad to see a review on this. Glad you liked "Truth Sunders." As you know, this project suffered Cthulhu's curse, so I am happy with the results. I think it is one of the more thought-provoking entries in the Freeport line.

Is there any sort of werewasp, here or in any of your other products?

Also - longshot, I know, but do you offer any Hero Lab support?

We don't currently have a werewasp, but I love the idea! I will see if Robert is up for that. I will check on Hero Lab support.

Personally, I'm most looking forward to weretigers. XD I actually built up a weretiger monk once (sadly, never got to play them), so I have a special fondness for that particular variant.

I will make sure we have such a character in the PDF!

Contributor

Thanks for the reviews, guys! I'm glad you enjoyed the book. We are working on releasing advanced races for the lycanthropes at this time. We have weremantises and werewolves out. Werebats is going into layout. Wererats and weretigers will be next. I have plenty of material in the works!

Thank you!

Bite Me! Werewolves by Robert H. Hudson, Jr. is here! Play a werewolf character for Halloween.

Bite Me! Werewolves is Howling to be Unleashed in Your Game

The original weres!

Known to all as rampant killers, their uncontrollable appetites tied to the waxing and waning of an accursed moon--but maybe a werewolf can be something else, something more.

Bite Me! Werewolves is a 19 page supplement describing a race of natural shapechangers fighting tooth and claw against their bad rep.
Bite Me! Werewolves Contains:

Rules for creating werewolf characters using the Bite Me! lycanthrope system, including new racial traits, archetypes, and feats
New werewolf spells (from call of the wild to wolf guardian), magic items (from grit of deadly bites to the wolf-calling totem), and equipment (from man feet to wolf whistle)
Details of werewolf life and society
Two completely statted (in both human and wolf forms) ready-to-use NPCs.

Both a color and print-friendly version of the product is included.

Contributor

Ping me if you would like to review: Bite Me! The Gaming Guide to Lycanthropes.

Contributor

Plus, I had to put on the backburner to get Bite Me! Out the door.

Thanks for the review! I'm obviously a fan of Spike's work. :)

Contributor

Hmm,interesting,but it does not sound like something I could input into my gaming easily--meaning, it would not get played.

Contributor

Marc Radle always does amazing production work!!!!

Contributor

After a LONG time, I've finally gotten this book on track to be printed. It is in layout now. The project has already released several PDFs in the Bite Me! line:

Playing Lycanthropes
Wereblooded
Skindancers
Archetypes
Meat-That-Screams
Weremantises

Contributor

Just a note to let everyone know these have come in, and my crew is busy developing and editing them. The main weres are covered, plus I have a few unusual ones. I am up for some more pitches, though they would not be needed until late December--have to get the first batch published.

Contributor

Thanks so much for the review! I'm glad the book proved useful. The Bite Me! main book is in layout now. I've got Werewolves up next by Robert H. Hudson, Jr. Meanwhile, there is a book on new lycanthropes and lycanthropes in published campaigns in editing. Then, there are more releases by particular were by various authors, including Mike Welham and Jeff Lee!

Great, great stuff, Misfit Studios. Props to Robert Hudson, Jeff, Rich, Christina and crew on a gaming supplement that's gonna get increased traction in my campaign world.

So glad you are enjoying it!

Contributor

Yes, I would likely support.

I will be reviewing this lycanthrope supplement in the coming week. I'm very excited about the entire premise of having more tabletop-friendly & streamlined lycanthrope PCs. Plus, I like the idea of being able to integrate more exotic "were-animal" types into your game.

My players will provide some assistance in play-test and feedback.

Looking forward to your comments!

Thank you, Christina! I recently purchased Dark Deed in Freeport and I'll be officially looking it over today in conjunction with my Freeport: City of Adventure UUCS book.

Having just peeked a quick look through ... and I see Dark Deeds looking insanely awesome. I especially like the ambiance and vibe of your 'Truth Sunders' section.

Thank you much! :)

Bite Me! Weremantises is Guaranteed to Bug Your Players

Bite Me! Weremantises
Not all lycanthropes are soft, furry, and oh so romantic. Some are covered in spiky natural armor, with insectile mandibles capable of biting a head off—and with a temperament that makes the head-biting thing a genuine concern.

Bite Me! Weremantises is an 18-page supplement describing a race of shapechangers who transform from graceful, cultured people into giant, deadly, cannibalistic insects.

Bite Me! Weremantises Contains:

•Rules for creating weremantis characters using the Bite Me! lycanthrope system, including new racial traits, archetypes, and feats

•New weremantis spells (from bleeding strikes to ten-thousand bites), magic items (from abduction gloves to the mask of divine right), and equipment (from beetle powder to slaver's darts)

•Details of weremantis society, a lycanthrope nation that can be incorporated into any campaign

•Two completely statted (in both human and giant mantis forms) ready-to-use NPCs.

Looking for reviewers for Endzeitgeist's Bite Me! Meat-That-Screams and Adam Meyers' Bite Me! Weremantises. Ping me with your rpgnow.com email addy if you are interested. These are products I published via Misfit Studios.

Quote in Product Above:

"To run it, the GM needs access to Pirate’s Guide to Freeport and the Freeport Companion: Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Edition. (You’ll definitely want the Freeport Companion's optional Insanity Point rules for this one!)"

I currently have the Freeport: City of Adventure - Ultimate Urban Campaign Setting book (the big book - which came out fairly recent, I believe). Is that sufficient to fulfill the requirements listed above? I'm playing Pathfinder rules, by the way.

Most definitely! The new book was just not out at the time we were finishing up the adventure. Let me know if you have any issues.

Hi, all:

Thilo Graf, aka Endzeitgeist, has out a PDF with our Bite Me! line of lycanthrope supplements: Bite Me! Meat-That-Screams. Check out what our favorite reviewer has created to bring some movie-madness to your game.

Bite Me! Meat-That-Screams will sate Your Appetite for Lycanthropes

"... and lead us not into temptation..."

A lycanthrope is a being of raw power--and for some, "raw" is the key word. Warm blood dripping from its jaws, a were seems to grow in size, strength and menace. And always there's the ultimate temptation--release his grasp on sanity and give in completely to his animal nature to gain even more power and be free from the pitiful restraints of "civilized behavior."

Bite Me! Meat-That-Screams is a 12-page supplement to the Bite Me! line of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game lycanthrope products available from Misfit Studios.

Bite Me! Meat-That-Screams Contains:
•Sustenance Pool rules, giving lycanthropes a new source or strength to draw on
•Meat-That-Screams rules, improving on the Sustenance Pool powers, but at a great price to the lycanthrope
•Over a dozen new feats tailored to the Sustenance and Meat-That-Screams rules

Both a color and print-friendly version of the product are included. We've also added an intractable, tablet-friendly landscape version.

Contributor

I have not had chance to clean out my email. How about just crediting my account the difference on the book and the bundle on the second one, since I won't get the PDF for it?

Contributor

I'm sold!

Contributor

Great thread! I'm planning on getting caught up on the releases soon. Thanks for talking about your experiences.

Contributor

Ok. Will do.
