As you may have noticed, this month was pretty crunch-heavy – but fret not, fans of Raging Swan Press and adventures in general, for in August, I’ll have some seriously cool adventures…which brings me to a personal failure of mine: My plan was to get the latest 4$D review done this month, which I unfortunately didn’t manage – rest assured, it is a top-priority right now and should hit site very soon. Similarly, I didn’t manage to complete my review of Monsters of Porphyra II in time, a book that should hit site soon as well.
For my plans in August: I want to catch up with EN Publishing’s Zeitgeist AP. My print-pile is officially DONE as well – unless the reader who has gifted me several LotFP-books steps forward and tells me to review them, that is. August will see more excursions into OSR-territory and also…the review of the current Wayfinder.
Beyond this, there currently are two worthwhile kickstarters to take a look at:
Strange Magic II for PFRPG and 5e by Interjection Games:
The sequel to the exceedingly awesome first Strange Magic book is already funded and there’s a high potential for me to be a contributing author. Plant chaos-magic, deck-building card magic and onmyōdo await! You can take a look here!
Veranthea Codex Expansion Booky by Rogue Genius Games/Mike Myler:
The unique setting of Veranthea gets more material! New print options, new books – all available here!
All righty…that out of the way: There’ll be no reviews next week. Why? Because I’ll be at gencon due to your generosity and the success of the “Bring Endy to Indy” bundle. For the first time in my life. I’m giddy like it’s my first day of school! If you’re also there, please say high, drop me a line so we can meet up and talk and just have a good time!
All right – as always, I’d like to thank all of you for your kindness and generosity – without you, there’d be no endzeitgeist. I take a bow and certainly hope I’ll be capable of personally thanking some of you next week!
