Highlight author: John Watson – Fiends of Ft Worth

Tangents! Fiends at Ft Worth

Author Freelance module John Watson

I came to work for D3 Adventures by playing in a game that Joseph Davis was running at OwlCon in Houston, TX. I really enjoyed the game and spoke with Joe after. He told me that Jason Yarnell, the owner of D3 Adventures, was downstairs in the registration area. I found Jason and struck up a conversation with him. He was very easy to talk to. He gave me a business card and asked me to send him an idea. I sent him the proposal for my adventure for his Tangents! line, which eventually became Fiends at Ft. Worth, and he sent me back a contract.

Weekly Ramble: Comicpalooza Aftermath, New Product Lines, and John Watson

Hi Everybody!

D3 had a fantastic time at Comicpalooza over the weekend, and we showcased the Universal Pool System for a lot of interested people, including some luminaries of the RPG publishing industry (whom we’re really hoping to get feedback from). I’d like to thank our awesome team of GMs (Joseph Davis, Sheena Colbath, Tom Olson, and John Watson) for all their hard work this weekend. Keep reading to see some pictures of our team at the con.

In honor of our attendance at Comicpalooza, Joseph Davis created this little bit of pathfindery goodness:

Con Crud
Type disease, inhaled; Save Fortitude DC20
Onset 1 day; Frequency 1/day
Effect 2 Str damage and 2 Con damage, Exhaustion
Typically attributed to fatigue from long gatherings at educational or arcane conventions, the ‘Con Crud’ as it’s been referred to is the bane of the hard-working entertainer and enthusiast. Easy to catch, and terrible to have, getting rid of the Con Crud typically involves copious amounts of rest. Each day you have the crud after onset, the DC to get rid of it is reduced by 1, and if you rest the full day, you receive a special +4 Circumstance bonus on the Fortitude check to get rid of the disease. While you are afflicted with the Con Crud, you are exhausted, and no effect short of magic can remove it.

In other news: Over the weekend, we also hired a new Line Developer, Jim Cook. Jim is starting up our new Superheroes line, Quantum Collapse, which will be built on the Mutants and Masterminds v3 system. We’re really excited about his plans for the line and I’ll be talking about them more in other rambles.

Curtis Baum is also working hard on expanding his Adventures! line with some new products that you’re sure to enjoy.  More on those in later rambles as well.

This week’s Contributor Spotlight falls on the ever-humble John Watson:

John F. Watson has been involved in tabletop role-playing games since the mid-90s. From traditional fantasy to hard science fiction, he has played and run games from nearly every genre.

John was first published in 2015 by D3 Adventures, with  Tangents!: Fiends at Ft. Worth – a modern day fantasy adventure. He published other things the same year and is currently working on other projects that he hopes will be published soon.

A native Texan, he currently resides in Pennsylvania with his fiancée Erin, dog Ragnar, and three ferrets – Hope, Oscar and Sepia.

John really is selling himself short here. He’s working as a co-developer on a very big project with me, which we’re hoping we should be able to start talking about in a few months.

And now, it’s picture time!

Quarterlies

Hello all,

Looks like we had a 29% increase in sales from Q2 to Q3. This is very good news.

Here Be Dragons‘ (by Michael Surbrook) and the ‘Barrow Mound’ tangent (by Paul Caughell) remain the top sellers with ‘USA-50: West‘ (Elliott Davis and Bob Greenwade) making some serious gains over this quarter.

With more sales comes the ability to release more products. Next out the door will be the fourth Tangent; ‘Ragnarok’ by Curtis Baum as a special convention focused adventure in honor of Aethercon. Following that will be the fifth Tangent;  ‘Fiends in Fort Worth‘ by John Watson. Both of these break away from the tradition of fantasy adventures in the Tangent line and begin to explore the cyberpunk and urban fantasy genre’s.

The Infinite Dungeon will be hot on the heels of these last two titles and we cannot tell you how happy we will be to get that monster finished and ready to roll. Ashcans for the ID will be released in November for the backers. These will be primarily art-less and with minimal layout, but they will contain all of the finished text.
