Weekly Ramble: 2016 Winter Preview for D3 Adventures

Paul CaughellHi Everybody, and welcome to the D3 Adventures 2016 Winter Preview! We have some great products coming out this quarter.

From Curtis Baum’s lines, we have the recently released Extras! product Mythic Giants. In concert with that, Curtis is releasing a giant-themed Tangent! mini-adventure, Temple of the Titan Lord, and Let Sleeping Giants Lie, a full-length giant-themed adventure for Pathfinder. Later in the quarter, Curtis is shifting gears with Extras! Cosmic Criminals, a Mutants and Masterminds collection of villains. This quarter should also see the first release in a new line, Rcane’s Guide to Fantastic Races.

Campaign Toybox has some new releases by Joe Davis being released this quarter to add options for your Pathfinder campaigns.  Look for Encore Performance in February, featuring more masterpieces and spells for Bards including a collection of themed spells for the Lightning Seeker Bard. In March, we’ll have Weaponmaster’s Chakram, a themed collection of fighter-subclass archetypes that uses Chakrams as their primary weapons.

For those that are fans of Mutants & Masterminds, releasing under the Super-Powered by M&M license, Jim Cook is working feverishly to finish the art and layout of our Quantum Collapse setting for the Mutants & Masterminds system, with an eye toward release this quarter.

And finally, the Universal Pool System Players Guide and Campaign Companion books are both being edited and revised.  We’re hopeful they will be ready for release this spring.

Weekly Ramble: SCIENCE!

Hi Everybody!

This week, I’d like to introduce our newest product line, SCIENCE!

“Science tells us the world is round and billions of years old.  Of course, science is lying.  It always lies.  The truth is, the world is flat.  And hollow.  And young.  And filled with glue.

Oh, science didn’t tell you about the glue?  Typical.  You should forget about science, and you should join us at SCIENCE! All of us at the Secret Committee to Investigate and Expose Non-Credible Explanations! make it our job to tell the Sheeple how it really is.  Think the continents are drifting? Ridiculous; it’s the oceans that are moving around. Think the moon landings were real?  How is that possible when the moon is fake?!  Think the dinosaurs are extinct?  Tell that to Phil the Allosaur; he’s right behind you.  What’s up, Phil.  Nice tie.

We’re not looking for people who believe what everybody else believes.  The world’s full of suckers like that.  We want the people who are different in their heads.  We want the hacktivists, the bloggers, and the militiamen.  We want the slackers, the wingnuts and the believers in the power of Woo.   If THEY say it’s crazy, it’s probably because it’s TRUE, and if it’s NOT then it OUGHT TO BE.  Join us, and we’ll show the Normals what’s what!”

SCIENCE! is a funny, fast-paced role-playing game set in a world where only the conspiracy theorists are sane.  Players use the MURICA! system of task resolution to rapidly create multiple characters who will stick their noses where they don’t belong, fight the Powers that Be and die hilarious deaths.  Learn what THEY don’t want you to know – for SCIENCE!

SCIENCE! is being developed by Andy Solberg, and should be available for purchase in 2016.

Weekly Ramble: Sage’s Story

Hi Everybody!

This week, we’re unveiling a secondary blog on the D3 site that will follow the story of what will be one of the signature characters of an upcoming Universal Pool System setting. The blog is written as an in-universe story told in the character’s own voice.  Check it out: Sage’s Story

Sage’s Story should be updated at least once a week, sometimes more often. We hope you all enjoy following along and learning a bit about the setting.

Weekly Ramble: Yet more Universal Pool System news, and upcoming cons

Hi Everybody,

Thanks to the efforts of one of our brilliant editors, the Universal Pool System Campaign Companion is almost through its first editing pass. In another couple of weeks, I should be starting the art order for that book, while she works on editing the Player’s Guide.

We have a special, ongoing side project related to one of the future Universal Pool settings, which we’ll be debuting for you soon (like, next week, probably).  We think you’ll enjoy it.

In other news, D3 Adventures will have a presence at Aethercon this November.  Aethercon is a virtual convention, where we will be running some online sessions of UPS and other games, holding a Q&A session for our products, and I’ll be on a panel talking about how to get started in the RPG publishing industry.

See you next week!
