Once again, I’ve reinvested some of the earnings into stock art. These are three pieces from Fat Goblin Games – I discovered last night that they were in the last few hours of a sale (must have missed the original email) and that, after the sale, the artwork was going to go up – substantially.
So, I purchased another three pieces of Lovecraftian stock art for the Tomes book that is (still) being worked on. These were Hound of Tindalos, Byakhee and Rat Thing. I suppose I could have purchased the other artwork in the series, but I had no immediate, or even planned, use for it. Hopefully, this won’t be regretted at a future date when it costs many times more than it did.
I’ve reinvested some of the money in buying three things from Fat Goblin Games. Two of these are pieces of stock art, both Lovecraftian in theme, a picture of an Elder Thing and one of a Deep One. Both of these are intended for a new Tomes supplement that is being written.
I also got the modern cover and page backgrounds set. All the other templates purchased so far have been from Lord Zsezse Works, but they don’t have a modern design as yet. I may not use this new template set much, and I may switch should Lord Zsezse come up with a modern set, but it was bought at the discounted price of only $1, so it’s not a huge expense even if it only gets limited use.
Now, I don’t have any immediate plans – or even any future plans – for these, but the purchase came about because they were part of a charity bundle product I purchased from Fat Goblin Games, which included a variety of other items, including some horror stock art portraits – something else I don’t yet have a use for.
These two template packs have the normal four sets of covers and papers seen in the other packs, but these also have four sets of matching backs as well.
I’m sure they will prove useful at some point and, like the others purchased, they are really very nice.
Now, this supplement isn’t published by Azukail Games, but by Guild Companion Publications, so it might seem a bit odd to be promoting it. However, I do have a credit in this book, which is why I’m doing it.
The city is unusual in that part of it – Eidolon – is floating, and part of the city-state’s fleet sails through the sky. This edition has been expanded substantially from the previous one. It is located in the Rolemaster Shadow World setting, but it should be adaptable to other worlds and game systems.
With the Christmas in July sale going on on RPGNow (in which Azukail Games is also participating), I’ve picked up another two template sets using reinvested publisher earnings. Unlike the Sci-fi set, these are two that I had planned to purchase.
