General Update

Good afternoon everyone who still follows the blog in any fashion.  It has been a very long time since I updated, and it seems as if I keep planning to relaunch and failed to start ...

First: The Projects.

Pyramid of the Lost King was a roller coaster ride here at GLG, we were two years late in delivering the product and failed to drum up any press when the title was actually released.  So while the end of May 2017 was a good month with the title making nearly $200.00 it has since died.  Between June and July we have sold all of two copies.

I was also supposed to do a demo game at a local game store in August ... however, lack of demand and sign-ups means I must likely will be sitting alone in the corner of a gaming store for a few hours.

New project-wise I am working on two things.  First is a shorter, more traditional Swords and Wizardry adventure called Mera that my playtesting group calls "kind of gothic" and is a refinement and expansion of the Patreon release of two-years ago of the same name.  The second project is actually a fiction project.  I am currently outlining a LitRPG novel that I hope to have released within the year.

Second: Life

As some may know I went back to college last August to get a degree in I.T..  I am just about to finish my first year of courses and while its going steady (I hate databases) it is eating up a lot of my time.  This is the major reason I have been missing from the blog, social media, and my online presence has pretty much dropped out.

On top of that with it being summer there are family trips, entertaining my kids, etc. 

So that's the general update.  Right now, I don't know where GLG will be in the next few months.  The failure of PotLK has been a huge blow and honestly as an organization I don't know if we'll recover.

  1. I'm no expert, but a bad month hardly seems like a reason to throw in the towel. If it's lack of advertisement, try plugging it some more on various blogs, namely relational topics, or giving a few copies out and asking about the pros and cons. If the adventure needs fine tuning, as far as I recall, PDFs get updates all the time. Crowdsourcing some ideas is what blogs and fan bases are made for. What about the fans you already have writing some free follow up encounters, new monsters, and magic items in Usarm based on PotLK? Could I write one? You're very busy, and someone else is helping out, plus they get to contribute, get a credit, and you get a few fresh perspectives. As I said, I'm no expert, and these are take or leave suggestions. You may be too busy, but it's something. Good luck on your new adventure. Peace.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

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.
Arcane Gauntlet- Rare Magical Item - Requires Atunement - Ranged Magical Weapon - Range 60/120ft - One Target, Hit 6 (1d6 + 2) Arcane Damage - Special After 4 uses the Gauntlet inflicts 2 Arcane damage on its wearer during every use in an encounter, on the 8th such use the wearer incurs 1d6 damage from the gauntlet's use.
