Rite This Way

Rite Publishing buffs their Pathfinder RPG–Compatible line!

We haven't talked about Rite Publishing in the store blog since February, but they've been introducing new products at a prodigious rate this year—over two dozen PDFs in the intervening months, most of them compatible with the Pathfinder RPG. That's so many that it makes more sense to spotlight entire categories instead of single products!

Looking at the Pathfinder RPG–Compatible offerings first, they've got the 101 Series, which each provide you with 101 new spells, feats, or other mechanics. Evocative City Sites continue to bring you fantasy locations that include maps and a handful of new critters to populate your world. They've enlisted Ashton Sperry to do a couple of Paper Minis for them, and those PDFs come complete with Pathfinder RPG mechanical material. They've also introduced several new Races & Classes, and a couple of other products. It's probably best to just browse through their whole Pathfinder RPG–compatible line!

They've also expanded their system-independent Fantastic Maps and added a couple of new Arcana Evolved products to their line!

This isn't the last you'll be hearing about Rite Publishing this year—they're going to be releasing a couple of interesting print products for use with the Pathfinder RPG: Coliseum Morpheuon, by Clinton J. Boomer and Jonathan McAnulty; and their Book of Monster Templates. Both are available for preorder now, and the Book of Monster Templates has a couple of FREE previe PDFs (#1 and #2) for you to check out!

RP Storeblog, the Rite way to blog! :)


I can see cartwheels being done in Dayton all the way here from the east side of Columbus.


Hold on. I've seen the cover artwork for a number of these Rite products inside some of the Super Genius Guide PDFs I've purchased... While I hate to throw around the "P" word, I can't help but wonder if there's some blatant plagarisin' goin' on here. :(

Or have Rite Publishing and SGG come to some sort of mutually beneficial agreement regarding each other's commissioned art pieces?


I know that from my limited exposure to SGG work that they do use art from a stock art package from time to time.


Ahh, that would explain it.

This. :)

We do use stock art and when you do, you run the risk of other great publishers using the same pieces.

Hyrum.

Darn stock art! With all those cheap and decent artists running around trying to snatch some work... :)

For his lower priced PDFs, Steve does use stock art. For his patronage projects, however, he commissions new art for each project.


Stock art. My favorite two words when trying to save money on a project.

I suppose you could always just put together a portfolio of stock art for yourself and sell it to as many publishers as possible. :)

Or offer to work for a percentage of profits for a year as opposed to an upfront fee.


This makes a very nice birthday present for me!!!!

Thanks Lisa.

Yes cartwheels, and back flips!

@Graylight: That is Decade of Fantasy by Joe Calkins stock art pack and Shaman Stock Art as well.

I however never use stock art in a patronage project, like Coliseum Morepheuon. Hugo Solis has done a number of amazing pieces for us including the Covers to Litorians and the Book of Monster Templates.

Yup, this blog just got me thinking about it... Maybe I'll have to poke LPJ about that...

I can't plug Coliseum Morpheuon enough. It's a great high level adventure for PFRPG. It's a great planar supplement as well. It has fantastic art and maps. I can't wait for my print copy. Not only is it great to read, but it's actually the next adventure I'm going to run for my players.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

@Hugo Clearly you need to find a way to auction off the rights to your art so you can get Rite, SGG, and LPJ to outbid each other.

Ok, maybe that's a bad idea.

@Hyrum Savage: Thank you for stating it was a stock art pack that was very professional of you to defend a competitor. Your a Gentleman of a Scholar.

I've seen a proofing copy of Coliseum Morpheuon (benefits of doing some work for Rite Publishing) and it's amazing. I'm absolutely head over heels in love with it. I think it's going to blow a lot of people away when it comes out.


@Tarren Dei; The final for Coliseum Morpheuon has gotten alot of respones like that. Its something I am very proud of as a publisher.

~grins~ I for one am looking forward to getting my signed copy. HOWEVER, I also plan on buying a non-signed copy to use.

"Coliseum Morpheuon" looks great.

I can't wait to have a look at "Breaking of Fostor Nagar".

Every Patron project by Rite Publishing has been a hit.

RPG Superstar 2009 Top 16

That's right! Coliseum Morpheuon is soon to arrive, and Pathfinder fans should rejoice because not only is it absolutely gorgeous, it is an adventure setting for 16th-20th level characters. My contacts in the industry tell me that this is a bit of an under-served niche with not a lot of published adventure materials out there.

And let's be honest - who better to set the stage for epic high-level daring-do across the Plane of Dreams than Clinton J. Boomer and Jonathan McAnulty?!

So DMs - be a little generous with that XP and drop some choice magic items. There's going to be a fantastic adventure coming out in a few months for your 16th level party...

It is good that RP gets some additional exposure, because they have been producing high-quality PRPG products for a while now.

Keep up the great work!

This group love all feels so Rite.

Qadira RPG Superstar 2009 Top 8

We've got the Rite stuff ...

They've got some talented Riters on staff ...

If it feels Rite, do it ...

I could go on all day.


Love working with RITE Publishing. Great products, great systems in place for putting out the products, and Steve treats everyone with respect. Couldn't ask for anything more. :)


I'm excited to see what folks think of both Coliseum and Breaking, as well. And to see what ends up in the web supplement for Coliseum. :) Rite's a great place to design and a wonderful community for collaboration.

(and yes, the artwork for Breaking of Forstor Nagar? Gorgeous.)

All sound cool but I am personally especially interested in the Garden of Evil.


I've enjoyed almost everything Rite has put out so far and they have a great community.

I'm looking forward to patronage projects to come (I've been a part of several) and look forward to writing more reviews of the stuff you put out. ^^

Plus: I think it's great that Rite gets some exposure. As previously said, a great company, open to feedback and friendly.

Cheers,

I was busy riding rocks in the Ocoee rapids (not the recommended way to do it by the way), so I missed this, but I hope I'm not too late to say: Congratulations!

I've enjoyed Rite Publishing's products, and I've had a great time working with Steve on my humble submission to the Book of Monster Templates.

Steve has a been a great publisher. If it wasn't for him, who knows when Jade Oath would have seen the light of day. Also, he has been very patient with an eccentric writer like me who often has... irregularities... crop up in his schedule frequently from his other jobs.

Also, he was cool enough to not say, "No." rite away to a pathfinder "conversion" proposal of mine that I think has a demand out there and would be very cool to write. We'll have to wait and see if we can still do it now that I have cleared some room from my schedule for the next couple of months.

Regarding art, Steve has been pretty cool about getting original art for the patronage project, Jade Oath. We have gotten some really good pieces that will be going into the omega version and he has recently commissioned more. It is awesome to see all of it coming together. I have seen lots of excellent art on the other Rite Publishing projects, as well.

Steve definitely is fun to work with, that's for sure. While I enjoy designing and writing, I can definitely say that Steve helped me discover my love of development and editing, which probably wouldn't have happened without Rite Publishing.

The Book of Monster Templates has been a blast editing, too.


I wanted to say thank you to everyone for their kind words.

Secondly I wanted to let folks know that Coliseum has been released to patrons. And I am going to be working with Vic to make the PDF available to all preorder customers as a bundle deal.

re. patrons, you are referring to the proofing copy, correct?

No, I think this is the real deal, but he's hitting some uploading issues.

-Ben.


Yeah I am on vocation and trying to upload a 100 mb file (all of Jonathan Roberts 5 map packs, with maptool files, and high resolution jpgs, with and without grids) that will probably take me two hours to upload and then my connection drops.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Got it!!! Total awesomeness. The inclusion of the full map packs and paper minis is brilliant.

Thanks!


Such is the benefit of patronage.

Don't forget we have the Questhaven patronage project looking for patrons as we are at 22%

I haven't gone through the whole thing yet; I think the link needs to be fixed off of your webpage (is what I was trying to communicate). I'll mention that in the e-mail as well. Thanks! =)


It should be completely fixed now. Thanks for the heads up.
