Massive $5 Advanced Adventures Sale! All December 2012.

I've decided to do our first $5 module sale at the Expeditious Retreat website. Every Advanced Adventure Module is now on sale for only $5 for the printed adventure. I've done 50% off sales before, so this is the lowest price on any of the AA's since we started making them in 2006. As a special bonus, Advanced Adventures #2: The Red Mausoleum, and Advanced Adventures #3: The Curse of the Witch Head are being sold for only $2! Two bucks for an adventure simply cannot be beat.

Also on the OSR front, I now have the Advanced Adventures Compendium One and Compendium Two hardcovers available through our website as well as the hardcover version of Malevolent & Benign (our OSR monster book - you should pick it up, it's cool). These three books are also on sale for 50% off.

Additionally, all the remaining Sorcery & Super Science printed books are on sale for 75% off! I don't have any of the core-rulebooks anymore, but at $3 a pop, the supplements are quite the deal for those interested in the game. For those who like general post-apoc craziness, the ZZZ Quick Guide to North America is pretty-much systemless and could easily serve as a good setting for any post-apoc game, IMO.

On the Pathfinder front, our 1 on 1 Adventures #12-#15 are also on sale for only $5. Malevolent & Benign (Pathfinder version) is on sale for 50% off and even though we've only got one copy of the 1 on 1 Compendium left it's also at half-off.

Finally, the first book we ever published (back in March, 2003) A Magical Medieval Society: Western Europe is also on sale for 50% off. It's the second edition of the text and, in my not so humble opinion, a great resource for running a pseudo or quasi-medieval campaign.

So that's quite a long commerical-oriented post. I've been publishing now for almost 10 years, and my birthday is in December, so help me fund some goodies for myself.... :-)

Merry Ho-Ho and have a happy version of whatever you choose to celebrate!

EDIT: ON SHIPPING: Shipping may become expensive for non-US customers who order many products as our system doesn't calculate shipping very well on such orders, unfortunately. If shipping comes out more than a few bucks different than the actual shipping price, I'll refund the excess to you. I'll treat you right.

The Undead Leviathan

Here's two pics of an undead whale creature that eventually transforms into a giant floating undead whale that uses its entrails as grasping tentacles...

Advanced Adventure #28: Redtooth Ridge Art Order Out

Just sent off the art order for Advanced Adventure #28: Redtooth Ridge to John and Daisy Bingham. I'm glad that one's done and now, on to the next AA in the queue - AA#29: The Doom of Red Rauthim. After that, AA#30: To End the Rising,and then to AA#31: Aerie of the Cloud Giant Strategos. I'm writing #31 and I don't even have a manuscript for it - but I do have some maps and a general plan of attack. It's supposed to be a continuation to Against the Giants. Gonna be fun!

Busy busy....

(Ever notice how there's just a ridiculous number of vowels in "queue?" I mean, you've got two "ue" in a row for no good reason...  Might as well go with queueueueueueue... now I'm thinking about the lady in Kung Pow)

This sign language acts as a universal language for over 15 distinct tribes that share little with each other in terms of native tongue. Winfalas also gives a brief account of how he was captured, enslaved, freed, and finally requested to lead the Hinawak tribe.

Today I Am Unwriting and Witch Mounds Cover Preview

I've gotten in some art from John & Daisy Bingham for AA#26: The Witch Mounds and that's pretty much done, AA#27: Bitterroot Briar's art order is out, and now I'm doing a second round of editing AA#28: Redtooth Ridge. As I'm author of Redtooth Ridge, I find a second round of editing helps significantly - mostly by cutting repetitive word count - I tend to be a bit wordy.

So, today I am unwriting.

Here's the cover of The Witch Mounds... enjoy!

A work found in every library concerning the plant world, The Iraline Herbal is an ancient work filled with the foundation of today’s modern herbalistic beliefs. The main drawback of the work is the lack of color illustrations, and such as lead to the preference of other herbals over this one.

Tome of Tomes

Now that all the election hoopla is over, here's a Tome of Tomes for your pleasure...

The Fecund Races
Author: Aleria Featherbow
Race: Elf
Dimensions: 8x8x1
Weight: 4lbs.
Materials: Leather-bound, stoneboard, parchment
Rarity: Common
Fields of Study: Humankind, humanoids & giantkind
Special Knowledge Categories: Demography
Value: 35 gp

Featherbow’s analysis of the fecund races (human, orc, goblin, hobgoblin, and kobold) is considered the “go to” work for this type of information. Compiled throughout her long life, the work provides birth/death rates for the various races based upon geographic locations and climate variance. Some have challenged the veracity of the work regarding its analysis of the non-humans, but as of yet there are no other more convincing arguments available.
