Whirlwinds at Shinobi 27 Games

Well this is the first chance I've had to post an updates on what's been going on at Shinobi 27 since 2016. So here goes:

Four books are underway at the moment with the hopes that two will be released in the first half of this year. Two are written or partially written by Daniel Bishop.

The first is the print version of The Revelation of Mulmo (ROM). Like AD&BB, this will only be available in print but also like AD&BB: EOE, ROM has been expanded with new art and new patron information.

In fact, there is a completely new patron, Gloriana, Faerie Godmother included. ROM, was originally conceived as a companion adventure to AD&BB, so once again I will be reaching out to the original backers to see if they want the adventure at cost. More news on this to come.

Next we have the long awaited (by me) sequel to The Trolls of Mistwood. Curse of Mistwood has been slowly gestating for over two years now and it is a BIG adventure. At present it sits at around 30,000 words and is still being completed. But it is close to completion and I will be sending out a call soon for playtesters. As a reward, I will be offering a free final print copy to each playtesting Judge.

With a huge menagerie of new monsters and a story that expands and builds on The Trolls of Mistwood, Curse of Mistwood pits the adventurers against the Methuselah of Wartaren, who threatens not only the village of Mistwood but the adventurer's entire world.

Co-authored by Daniel Bishop and myself, I am very proud of what this adventure is becoming. A lot of art and ideas are still flowing to make this the best it can be.

Also on the horizon is a new Patrons book - a supplement to go along with AD&BB. I can't say too much about this one but author, James Pozenel has been pouring his heart and soul into this book - I hope we don't need to venture into the Abyss to retrieve those...

The final book this year is a new adventure designed to introduce players to the campaign city of Claeridge Pass. I have some new writers working on this setting. The timetable for this is not yet set but hopefully by the close of 2017.

Lastly, make sure you grab yourself a copy of Mystic Bull's print release of DAMN magazine - it's full of OSR, DCC, RPG, meaty goodness - new content and art aplenty. It will be coming soon and editor, Paul Wolfe, is looking for contributors for issues 2 and beyond!

Cheers till next time,
David Fisher.
