[Kickstarter] A not an Update

Last night for a friend's birthday everyone gathered at my house and a small get together was had. Nearing 2 am the few remaining friends were informed of the kickstarter and one asked what it was all about. I explained it and he asked for a sample of my kickstarter and a similar one.

I gave him my tablet with a doc copy of my manuscript as well as my print copy (hidden from the eyes of children) of  +Venger Satanis's "The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence".  In about 30 minutes he skimmed over the two and made his assessment. 

"The Islands of Purple-Haunted Putrescence" is like Event Horizon and Alien while "Pyramid of the Lost King" is Flash Gordon and Buck Rodgers. 

I was a bit taken aback at first until I realized that was a pretty good analogy and I don't mind being lumped with the "Geez-whiz!" serials of the 40s. 

Speaking of Venger! Revelry in Toth is now available in print over at drivethrurpg, hopefully my copy will be here by Friday.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!


Magic Item - Arcane Gauntlet

Arcane Gauntlets are small devices of leather and copper fitted to the wearer's primary hand and feature a small, thin gem imbued with pure arcane energies affixed to the palm. As a standard action the wearer of an Arcane Gauntlet may release its energies up to four times in a single encounter safely, and up to eight times if the wearer is willing to endure the burning residual heat from sustained use of the device.  If an Arcane Gauntlet is used to its maximum effect (eight times) it is inoperable until such a time as its wearer takes a long rest.
