  News for January 2008

We've released The Fields of Silver - a new Turjan-level campaign from Lynne Hardy.  Read more in this article.

News for August 2007
Fear Itself is released. Fear Itself plunges ordinary people into a disturbing contemporary world of madness and violence. Players take the roles of regular folks much like themselves, who are inexorably drawn into confrontation with the creatures of the Outer Black, an unearthly realm of alien menace. With or without its distinctive mythology, GMs can use it to replicate the shudders and shocks of the horror genre in both film and literature.
The limited edition Compendium of Universal Knowledge for the Dying Earth is being printed this week. There are fifty copies in total, and about twenty remain unreserved. If you'd like to reserve a copy, please email me. It will be $49.95.
The GUMSHOE book of Unremitting Horror is being printed, and includes everything from the d20 Book of Unremitting Horror, as well as new creatures, Esoterrorist background material, and lots of adventures.
All these books will be available at GenCon Indy, where there will also be demos of Esoterrorists and Fear Itself. We'll also be producing a limited edition of Robin's comic The Birds. Robin will be on the stand for signings.
"The Lords of Cil" is the third pdf release in Ian Thomson's epic Cugel-Level campaign for DERPG.

News for July 2007
Fear Itself , the next GUMSHOE publication, is now at the printers. It should be out next week.
I received proof copies of The Compendium of Universal Knowledge, but I'm not happy with the hardback, so that will be delayed a little until I have seen further samples.
GUMSHOE Unremitting Horror is awaiting an index.  Albion's Ransom (fomerly Little Girl Lost), the first big Esoterrorist adventure has been playtested and is receiving its final edit.
We've done a reprint of XPS 4/5 available from the webstore. If you have purchased a PDF, please email me and I'll send you a voucher for the difference.

News for April 2007 - More PDF versions of our products are available from our webstore, including the Esoterrorists. If you've bought the print version, you can download the PDF from your existing order page. Robin gives us part II of his article on structure in GUMSHOE adventures. Finally, more Dying Earth goodness from Ian Thomson with spells and cantraps of forest and field in Violet Cusps.

News for February 2007 - The GUMSHOE system has been launched with The Esoterrorists, a game of investigation and occult horror. You can get it at the webstore. The Forum now has GUMSHOE and Esoterrorist areas.

Forthcoming GUMSHOE releases include:

Fear Itself, the GUMSHOE Horror game. (Already written and in layout.)
Trail of Cthulhu, by Kenneth Hite, licensed from Chaosium, Inc. (Underway)
The Book of Unremitting Horror, based on Dave Allsop and Adrian Bott's excellent d20 version with a new adventure and new material for The Esoterrorists. (Due to be completed mid-March.)
Little Girl Lost - an epic Esoterrorist campaign by Ian Sturrock.

News for June 2006 - The Pelgrane is flapping forward with so much vigor this month that we've had to create a separate page for all the details.

The 'Footsteps of Fools' series - An interlocking series of Cugel-Level adventures. The first ones are for sale via the products page and at RPG NOW. These are "The Day of the Quelo" (a Cugel-Level adventure that can stand alone or be incorporated into the second FoF release - "Strangers in Saskervoy"), and "All's Fair At Azenomei" (the first adventure in the new FoF series).
