Rough magic update

As our weekly game progresses, I have made a few tweaks to the game system in Rough Magic, particularly magic, as that’s a central focus of the game. I’ve also fleshed out the rules for what happens when magic goes wrong, which I personally find really funny.

The setting still needs a lot of documentation. Most of it is in my head, but of course that’s of no use to anyone unless I write it down. Not that I think anyone other than me will play it even if I do write it down, but these are the little lies we tell ourselves to cope with our meaningless existence in a vast, uncaring universe.

I’m still not entirely happy with the title/logo.

Black Orchid

This is a commission by artist John Zeleznik: “Black Orchid”. Nightshade guards the Kalos Universe from threats some consider to be… unnatural. Folks who supported our Bulletproof Blues Second Edition Kickstarter will get a high-resolution copy of Nightshade along with her write-up (look in your Backer Rewards vault!). This was not a stretch goal: it’s a bonus, to thank our supporters for their patience and generosity. Nightshade is also available on DriveThruRPG as a special “One-Shot” Character Art Pack, with her character write-up using the Bulletproof Blues Character Sheet Helper.

Bulletproof Blues Second Edition print books shipping soon

The proof for the print version of Bulletproof Blues Second Edition arrived today, and it looks great! We will be sending out the print books to people who backed us at the National Icon ($45) level and above over the next couple of days. Once we have sent the book to all of our Kickstarter backers, we will make the printed book available for purchase on DriveThruRPG.

Kalos Comics mugs?

I was playing around today with creating custom coffee mugs through Cafe Press. From top to bottom, these are the GORGON, Kalos Comics, and Aegis logos. They’d be expensive, as coffee mugs go — $18 each, plus shipping. Is there any demand for these? I would sell them at my cost.
