Hey John, thanks for the compliments on the art/layout. We strive to make all our books visually appealing in those departments. We weren't able to include all the creatures we had dreamed up in the initial setting book, but expect to see support for the setting as either pdf or posted content on our recently launched website www.fatgoblingames.com - we will have an assortment of posts with snippets for the setting, and short 1-2 page free pdf's for the setting in the future.
Can't wait Axel! I like the Eldritch Conjuror as well. I think the base classes for the book are all really cool and we were very happy with how they turned out and how they came together for the book.
It was an ambitious attempt to create a full book in 24 hours that didn't work out as you planned, but I think this is a much better product. I picked up my copy and so far I like what I see. Of course I want look further in to it but so far I like what I see plus there are some monsters that I can use in my home campaign.
Thanks Louis, yeah it was ambitious- and we totally agree we are a lot happier with this final then we would of been with the 24 hour version. And the response we've gotten so far has been great. Enjoy those monsters :)
Shadows over Vathak
Shadows over Vathak is a full setting created as part of Fat Goblins 24 Hour RPG Project. The goal of the 24 Hour RPG Project was to create a full 96 page book in color for a setting that was determined by popular vote tallied at the start of the 24 hour launch. The 24 hour deadline was missed, but with the support of our fans, in the following weeks we poured our creativity and talent into this setting.
Shadows over Vathak is a dark fantasy, survival, lovecraftian setting full of eldritch horrors. In this book you will find 6 playable races, 4 new classes, detailed equipment, overview of the setting (including details on specific regions, cities, landmarks, etc.) and new creatures to throw at your players.
For the next 24 hours, you can download Shadows over Vathak for $1 - after that it goes back to it's full price!

Again, we followed the suggestions of the people who were actively discussing the event with us on facebook.
And to clear things up- $15-$20 donation would of been more then we received total in donations- and almost all people gave a $5. We were doing it for fun not money.
If anyone feels we were taking advantage of them, I'll send a copy of the pdf as is right now.
Sorry for not checking in over here, we had been giving updates over at facebook. We actually got very close to the goal, however, art and layout slowed a lot of the process down, which cost us the deadline. Most everyone over at facebook suggested we take the week off and start back up the next weekend, or stick with the high quality of production and slow things down a bit.
So, that's what happened. ShadowcatX, sorry for the obviously huge disappointment we caused you. The general opinion of the majority of people following the event was to take the route we did, sorry if you do not agree.
And before you make comments on the quality of our products and schedule, do you even own any of our books?
yeah, it's not going to happen, but it's almost done. new art and layout slowed us down too much. We wanted to keep the quality up through out. so, we are taking a forced break by our wives, and should be able to finish it up in a few hours tomorrow. Even though we missed the deadline, it proved tome it can be done- and wait till you see it.
Nope, not our first book. Artist/designer Rick Hershey has been working in the industry for over 10 years for just about everyone, from wotc,to green ronin, to open design. He also owns Empty Room Studios.
Jason Stoffa has been a DM for close to 15 years and has published books of various sizes through Empty Room Studios and Fat Goblin Games.
Anyways, things are moving along, updating all the time at Facebook. not too late to donate and get a copy!
Just to answer 2 quick questions.
1- paypal. You can support this product by donating to our paypal (firstname.lastname@example.org) any amount you donate, no matter how big or small will get you a pdf copy of the book.
The look and quality of the book (from a design/art perspective) will look much like our recent Racial Ecologies pdf's that have been in the top 10 at drivethru/rpgnow the last week or so.
2- If we get a large amount of donations we will be giving to charity. Most likely either the Crohn's foundation (Rick's wife suffers from the disease) or to a children's charity (as Rick and his wife also lost thir son this past thanksgiving.
Thursday night Fat Goblin Games will take on the challenge of creating a 96 page setting book for the Pathfinder Roleplaying game. with a team of one writer and one artist, they will challenge the odds and produce a complete setting, with classes, races, equipment, monsters, and a detailed description of the setting.
This will be a full color book and available for sale as a pdf upon completion. You, as a viewer will be able to see our periodic updates here as we work feverishly to produce the setting. But there is more!
In addition, to gear up for the event, we are asking you to choose the theme of the setting. This can be simply done by attending this event and before the event date posting what theme you would like to see. The night we launch the event we will choose the one with the most mentions. Now, when suggesting a theme, keep it simple. We want to see suggestions like jungle setting, horror setting, etc. No modern, just fantasy.
You can further support this event by donating ANY AMOUNT of money to the project through paypal. This money, whether a $1 or $5 will get you a free copy of the setting pdf the night the event ends. This money will go to fuel the creators in the challenge by providing pizza, energy drinks, and other essentials to rise to these monumental adventure. And if enough money is raised, the creators will choose a well deserving charity and donate the rest of the money for a good cause.
So, attend this event. Spread the word. Donate to the event. Choose a theme. Tune in as we create true awesomeness.

Racial Ecologies: Guide to Ratfolk
"It is an ugly thing to watch people poking sticks at a caged rat.
They can be found anywhere. Dwelling in the crumbling ruins of an ancient keep, the labyrinthine maze of a city sewer, and buildings long abandoned; this is where the Ratfolk call home. They reside beneath the earth in sprawling tunnels, waiting for the call of night. Waiting for the time to once again claim that which they believe to be rightful theirs....

Hey Dark Mistress. . . um, thanks? We are excited to see the book as well, and this new line will explore character races that have shown up in Pathfinder books before, along with new races down the line.
We might eventually sell on paizo, just not a big fan of how they pay out royalties (meaning waiting for a check).
