It has been a pretty productive week for me at the Purple Duck Games cave.

Review
We have two new reviews from Endzeitgeist this week.

  1. Kineticists of Porphyra III by N. Jolly
  2. Adventure Avenue: The Still Grotto by Perry Fehr

Releases
This has been a big week for releases because I wanted to get a number of things up for sale prior to the Christmas in July Sale kicked off.

  1. We added 22 new pieces of stock art. This brings our total stock art offerings up to 900+ items. I think that makes Purple Duck Games one of the largest stock art providers on the site.
  2. Nathan Reinecke's first product with us: Samurai of Porphyra was also released.
  3. The Tulgorth has been added to the MoP patreon.

Development

  • 4Saken - currently on the hunt for the right cartographer.
  • Death Slaves of Eternity (DCC) - art will be ordered this coming week.
  • Dispatches of the Raven Crowking (DCC) - print form in process.
  • Drow of Prophyra IV - arrive in my inbox this morning.
  • Gedak's Ethnology: Vultaris - outline
  • Giants of Porphyra - currently in limbo
  • Heroes of the Haunted Seas - in queue behind Kesh
  • Heroes of the Hinterlands of Kesh - waiting on art
  • Maiden Voyage of the Colossus (DCC) - back in edits
  • Overlord (Psychic Class) - waiting on a piece of art.
  • Paths of Power II - additional writing, final touches
  • Purple Duck Storeroom - Familiar Finery - in edits
  • Psionic Prestige Archetypes: War Mind - additional text
  • Saurians of Porphyra - commissioned today
  • Secret Hybrid Class - new writer.
  • Secret Compilation I & II - existing writers
  • Vigilantees of Porphyra - art has been ordered.

A lot of forward progress this week. I plan to make even greater strides next week.

Bad Ideas - 18 Jul 2016 18:42

Tags:

It is the 18th of July so my internet has been reset and I have bandwidth yet again. Which is great because I have a lot of things to work on and bandwidth certainly helps with that project.

So what has been happening?

Things Being Worked On

  • Death Slaves of Eternity (DCC) - Maps are in process, then art, then print form.
  • Dispatches of the Raven Crowking (DCC) - print form in process.
  • Gunslingers of Porphyra - waiting on a piece of art.
  • Vigilantees of Porphyra - waiting on additional text and art. (I need to pay this author when they get back to me with payment details)
  • Overlord (Psychic Class) - additional writing
  • Paths of Power II - introduction, additional writing, final touches
  • 4Saken - on hold until maps from DSoE are done.
  • Gedak's Ethnology: Vultaris - outline
  • Giants of Porphyra - currently in limbo
  • Heroes of the Hinterlands of Kesh - waiting on art
  • Heroes of the Haunted Seas - in queue behind Kesh
  • PDS - Familiar Finery - in edits
  • Maiden Voyage of the Colossus (DCC) - back in edits
  • PsPA: War Mind - additional text
  • Secret Hybrid Class - new writer.
  • Secret Compilation I & II - existing writers

There is quite a lot on the plate but that is good. At no time should I be able to sit around with nothing to do.

When I have nothing to do I work on bad idea projects like my secret alligatomancer.

The Great Abaci - 05 Jul 2016 01:39

Tags:

In my home campaign set in Azag-Ithiel, I introduced a new minor god called The Great Abaci. He is worshipped by a taddol named Salso/Ember who runs an alchemy shop called Mercurial Elixirs. The parties helped clear out a catacomb dungeon beneath the town of Nicnfoot and more important Mercurial Elixirs itself.

The Great Abaci
God of Numeracy, Organization, and Trade
Worshippers: mathematicians, the obsessive compulsive, merchants
Alignment: LN
Domains: Knowledge, Law, Travel
Subdomains: Education, Legislation, Trade
Favored Weapon: wushu dart
Favored Animal: khuzdan jackal
Symbol: A silver counting frame with topazes for beads

Treasures and Minions - 03 Jul 2016 13:41

So it has been a day so naturally things have moved around a bit.

New Content

Things to Do

  • Updates to make to Legendary Classes: Eternal Mage based on user feedback
  • Write the contemplative angel and the jelly bears for MoP3
  • Write the Psionic Prestige Archetype: War Mind (1st draft done)
  • Rework Maiden Voyage of the Colossus (DCC) to tighten it up.
  • Layout on Dispatches from the Raven Crowking II (DCC), Death Slaves of Eternity (DCC), Paths of Power II, 4Saken, Heroes of the Hinterlands of Kesh, Heroes of the Haunted Seas, Legendary Classes: Overlord, PDS: Familiar Finery
  • Fix a bunch of wanted pages over on the Porphyra wiki.

Things in Editing

  • Samurai of Porphyra
  • Vigilantes of Porphyra
  • Purple Mountain VIII
  • Tyranny and Manipulation
  • Drow of Porphyra IV?

Nice Things

  • As of yesterday Monsters of Porphyra 2 has now sold at least 1 copy at all three sales venues. It is selling best at Rpgnow right now, but it has a long way to go. A monster book of this size is going to need almost 300 copies in PDF to break even.

If I am going to get things off my to-do list I better get to work.

It is officially July, I know because I just flipped over my calendar and I'm no longer at school. So it is definitely time to get back to work at Purple Duck Games. Here is what is happening right now:

New Content

Things to Do

  • Monster Treasure Hoard book that needs layout.
  • Updates to make to Legendary Classes: Eternal Mage based on user feedback
  • Write the contemplative angel and the jelly bears for MoP3
  • Write the Psionic Prestige Archetype: War Mind (1st draft done)
  • Rework Maiden Voyage of the Colossus (DCC) to tighten it up.
  • Layout on Dispatches from the Raven Crowking II (DCC), Death Slaves of Eternity (DCC), Paths of Power II, 4Saken, Heroes of the Hinterlands of Kesh, Heroes of the Haunted Seas, Legendary Classes: Overlord, PDS: Familiar Finery
  • Fix a bunch of wanted pages over on the Porphyra wiki.

Things in Editing

  • Gunslingers of Porphyra
  • Samurai of Porphyra
  • Vigilantes of Porphyra
  • Purple Mountain VIII
  • Tyranny and Manipulation

Nice Things

  • KOP I, II, and III all made it on the Paizo Top Downloads list from other companies. They have been on that list every week since they were launched. Visibility on that list and N. Jolly's communication on the boards has been a huge help to those books.
  • An anonymous customer on Rpgnow had this to say about the Lands of Porphyra campaign setting:
    • Beautiful work. They aren't kidding when they call this a patchwork planet. There are a lot of fantasy tropes supported by this world. It can handle traditional fantasy, science fantasy, horror, and there are even a couple of locations made specifically for fans of the Lovecraft universe. This world is very inclusive, and delivers on more than I asked of it. It promises to be a lot of fun, I can hardly wait to introduce my players to Porphyra!
  • Here is what Endzeitgeist said.

If I am going to get things off my to-do list I better get to work.
