#RPG – Postmortem Studios 2018 Catalogs

We’ve released two catalogues of our all (current) products from across all sales sites.

The first catalogue is of all our products and has everyone in mind. Here you can find every game, every book, every RPG with easy links to take you right to them.

The second catalogue is made with fellow publishers in mind. We have a huge amount of stock art by various artists which can be difficult to navigate on the websites. Here you’ll find it all laid out, with links, so that you can easily flip through, find the pieces you need and add them to your checkout without wrangling around in a search engine.

Where to find me

25024554_146590269453529_6640429029172183040_nI’ve had a bit of a spring clean and a re-brand of all my sites. So it seems like a good time to show you where you can find me, contact me, talk to me, bother me with questions and so on.

This is just my social media/website presence, but from this site – at least – you should be able to find everywhere that you can buy something of mine – should you be so inclined.

 

  • My main ‘hub’ website is this one, where you can find most of my links, stores and so on as well as the most regular updates.ch as
  • Community support is necessary to make things viable for creators such as myself these days and as such, please consider donating a buck a month to my Patreon.
  • My writing/stories website can be found here. Here I talk about stories, writing and issues around it such as censorship.
  • I have a Youtube channel where I provide game reviews and discussion, social and political commentary, humour, stories, ‘choose your own adventure’ poll games and more.
  • On Facebook I can be found at Postmortem Studios, JGDGames and JDWriter as well as, as myself.
  • G+ is still surprisingly active in a lot of ways, you can still find me there.
  • There’s a Machinations of the Space Princess group over on G+ as well.
  • Of the New Media alternatives, I find Minds.com to be the better one, you can find me there.
  • I also run a roleplaying oriented group on Minds which you’re welcome to join.
  • If you want to send me questions and queries, I have an Ask.fm.
  • If you like random pictures of cats, countryside and me, then Instagram is here.
  • My Twitter remains active and can be found here.

#RPG – Postmortem Studios January Update

230704Belated happy new year everyone!

Apologies for the delay in updates but on top of long-term illness before Christmas, I was VERY sick over Christmas and into the new year. Since the start of the year, I’ve been working on planning, plotting and making updates to my various sites, logos and so on.

So far we have a new logo (see previous posts) and both the Youtube channel and Patreon have been updated – with more spring cleaning to come on this site and on the various social media channels I have elsewhere in the coming weeks.

There’s more and more stock art coming both from our regular, Brad and from a whole bunch of artists donating or being paid to contribute to the Darkzel scholarship project, so keep an eye out for that. You can find our stock art catalogue here.

We’re also working on PDF catalogues of EVERYTHING we’ve done, which can be a lot easier than directly browsing various websites to find it. This should be especially useful when it comes to clipart. We’re also bundling chunks of clipart into downloadable multi-piece bundles, again to try and make things easier for you.

More Gor material should be coming, plus we’re in talks to extend the license so you can look forward to more Gor adventures and supplementary material moving forward.

Preparation is in process for a crowdfunded project later in the year, but I am trying to keep my ambitions relatively small given the continued health issues. That said, I’m considering finishing the Machinations of the Space Princess companion, producing MotSP oriented material and optional rules for Starfinder, producing a ‘choose your own adventure’ book and releasing the start of a new mini-series of survival games I’ve been working on – on and off – for some time.

Then there’s the post apocalyptic diary-novel I need to finish…

To let you know about some policy changes around here…

  1. Discounts will now ONLY be available to Patrons at my Patreon page – even just at the $1 tier. So if you want to continue to get discounted material, consider supporting me over there.
  2. Opportunities for playtesting and rough drafts will also initially be offered over on Patreon, so if you want to get in on some of that, please be my guest.
  3. I’m continuing to shift into video, even producing a poll-based ‘choose your own adventure’ over there, so you really should subscribe to my Youtube channel. I’m also happy to answer your game/indie related questions on the channel, live or in the comments. If you want to keep up with me, I make Youtube content almost daily. If you can’t stand Youtube you can also find my videos at Bitchute.
  4. Social media is having a lot of issues of late and so I’ve sought to diversify a bit. Vidme went under and Gab, despite being independent has developed a ‘hard-right’ reputation, but I can recommend Minds.com which is developing into a nice little site. You can find me there, and I also run an RPG group there which I invite you to join and contribute to.

Now, you tell me! What do you want to see here, and how can I entice you to support me on Patreon? 🙂

#RPG #Art #Cosplay – ZelArt Scholarship Commissions

000564-Free-logomaker-Pencil-Tree-Logo-01The ZelArt Scholarship fundraiser has paid out and combined with the private donations there’s about $600 to play with. As I’ve covered, this year we’ve done things a little differently. To increase the sustainability of the project and the scholarship, this year the money will be going to as many art commissions as possible to be sold as stock art to support the scholarship into the future.

To that end, I am now looking for artists to commission.

I would prefer, still, to hire artists who are at school, college or university or who need the money due to some hardship or necessity. I’d still like to help people, even doing things this way around, as much as possible.

  • Obviously, the cheaper people can provide work the better, as we can get more work to sell. That said here’s what we’re looking for…
  • Original content – you can provide suggestions or we can.
  • Fantasy, science fiction, horror, post apocalypse, steampunk, modern cop/spy/soldier, occult and other genre material.
  • Characters, weapons, ships, vehicles, anything that fits. Spot-art for pages would also be good, several smaller pieces (like spot art) on a page would also be acceptable.
  • Quarter, half or full page at 300-600 dpi, colour or black and white (B&W sells better).
  • We’re opening up to cosplayers too, the same sorts of requirements apply and your content must be original. There isn’t the money to commission costumes or shoots, but you would be helping a good cause and making a little bit of cash!

Commissioned art will be paid on completion and your contact details and portfolio link will be included as part of the stock license. This means that any company or individual using your art will be given your information and must include it in any products that they produce. ‘Exposure’ has a bad rep, with good reason, but on top of being paid it can’t hurt!

If any artists want to DONATE art, they can also do that and it would be greatly appreciated. We’re open to that all year round.

Contact HERE for more details or to put yourself forward.

#RPG – Postmortem Studios New Logo

And this is the (almost certainly) finalised version.

So on to rebranding the sites and pages, some of them using this logo!

#RPG – Postmortem Rebrand/Logo Round 2

I’d appreciate any feedback again.

You can see an optional bevel on one of the images on the dark background.

The red background I’m not sold on, but it was suggested.

The quill has been moved and given a dark surround against the red.

Font choice has been narrowed.

#RPG – New Logo/Font Feedback

Trying to get back to the ol’ gothic roots, and I like the ‘worn’ aesthetic. I do a redesign and rebrand every few years and it felt like it was time. The design’s derived from funerary heraldry.

What do you think? Which designs and which fonts do you like best?

NewLogo3

Sometimes the simplest option is the best…

NewLogoMarble

A marble background is a little more visually interesting, but at print size could look ‘grubby’.

NewLogo2

The written word is common to almost all my enterprises.

NewLogo1

Dice are important, but I feel like it throws the design off balance.

NewLogo4

Or there’s always overkill…
