#RPG – Postmortem Studios July Update

Gz4cc1530536253

It is entirely too goddamn hot.

Way too hot.

It’s hotter than a round-bottomed girl in short-short that someone’s set fire to.

New meds and (finally) some financial assistance with my mental issues have made things a lot easier and less stressful here. You can’t honestly measure the positive effect a little better financial security can have. I’m back to being somewhat productive every day and that’s a start.

Of course, the aim is to use this boost to get to a point where I don’t need the help any longer, which means continuing to work hard and investing that little extra bit of financial security in the future.

Gor products will continue to come out – The Cave of Gold came out last month and Brad continues to churn out the stock art, I’m also in talks with Toby for more Tobyart and am still uploading donated and commissioned art for the Zelart Scholarship. Towards that ‘investment’ end though, I’m still going to be looking to commission new art specifically for stock art. If you want to be considered hit me up.

I’m also looking to partner with cosplayers, still, something I’ve wanted to try and do since… two-thousand-and-frigging-six. This whole idea is a somewhat crazy experiment, but if you’re a photogenic cosplayer/LARPer with an original character in the fantasy, horror, science fiction or post-apocalyptic genres let me know. This would be a smallish upfront payment and a 50/50 profit split plus promotion of social media, sites, photosets etc. Again, hit me up at the same link above if you have any interest.

Right now I’m working on the next Gor adventure, 05 Black Daggers, and the first book in the survival trilogy of games, The Green.

This month is Grimdark D&D month on the blog, teasers and portions of these articles will be available for free at postmortemstudios.wordpress.com and steemit.com/@grimjim while those who sub on Patreon for as little as a buck a month or at Minds.com for a token a month will get full access to these articles, which will be early brainstorming for a future crowdfunded project.

Patrons and Minds donors (Mentalists?) also get discounts on apparel from our Teespring store and from PDFs. So mosey on over there and give me your cash!

Also please, please, please sub to my Youtube channel and also Inappropriate Characters, the talk show I do with The RPGPundit and Venger Satanis.

Right, time to try and cool off and get some work done!

Zang!

 

#RPG The Cave of Gold Released!

CaveOfGoldFrontThumbIn this adventure for the Tales of Gor roleplaying game, the characters are charged with investigating peculiar tales of a golden cave on the fringes of the Northern Forest.

Jailbreaks, bandits, panther girls and strange monsters all stand in their way, before they finally uncover a plot that has been unfurling for almost fifty years.

This book also contains Games Master tips for portraying alien mindsets and using smell in your games, especially with reference to the Priest Kings.

Print on Demand

gor_slavegirl_alphaFor the next couple of days you can use the check-out code FIFTEEN to get a discount on the PoD.

Gor Tshirts are coming!

#RPG #200WordRPG – 4 x 200 Word RPGs

243690I compiled my 200 Word RPGs into a little booklet.

I hope you actually play them and enjoy them 🙂

560Check it out, we have a new shirt for sale!

You’ll also find posters of our mosaic map of Gor there.

If you backed me, on Minds.com or on Patreon you’d get discounts on these that would more than pay you back for supporting me!

Don’t forget to also check out my Youtube channel, and our new group vodcast, Inappropriate Characters.

#RPG #TTRPG – Postmortem Studios May Update

240931The art on the left is by Brad McDevitt, who sells a ton of stock art through us. Perfect if you’re starting out making your own games or need something cool for a handout. This art isn’t only for use in RPGs, you can use it in any of your personal or professional projects, subject to the license.

First things first! If you don’t already follow me everywhere, please make sure you do! It’s the only way to ensure you get all our updates and information. You can find me on Youtube, Twitter, Gab, Minds, Instagram, Steemit, Facebook, Bookface, FookBace, GooglePlus and Bitchute. If you’re looking for new social media or blogging support, I can highly recommend Minds and Steemit. It’s well worth setting up a Bitchute account if you have a Youtube account, as it can be set to automagically back up your videos from Youtube and publish them on there. A useful safeguard in this censorious age!

You can support me by buying products at RPGNOW, Lulu.com, Amazon and TheGamecrafter, or go one better and subscribe to support me on Patreon.

MakerSupport has been having some issues of late, but those who follow and support me for $1 a month on Patreon or 1 token a month on Minds.com will get discounts, articles, exclusive access and more.

If you’ve got no money, you can still follow on all these platforms and provide support by upvoting and especially resharing content as algorithms on Facebook and Youtube are choking creators’ exposure.

I also recently added a Teespring store, where you can currently purchase two different T-shirt designs. Check it out! This will be replacing the old Cafepress store, which just can’t compete on quality or exposure.

If you’re a Gor fan, there are now communities for Gor on Facebook, Minds and Googleplus.

Personal Update

I am doing a hell of a lot better, having had my cocktail of brain drugs adjusted. Now, if I could only also get a prescription for Modafinil, I think I might become a Delphi Juicer (RIFTS). This means my output has gone up a lot – as you may have noticed – in terms of blogs, Youtube videos and, behind the scenes, work. I’m slowly getting back into routine and becoming more productive. I’m by no means ‘better’, just more capable. I have a tendency to run myself into the ground with work the moment I’m capable of it, so I’m watching for that.

Youtube and Facebook make raising awareness of product so very difficult it sometimes barely seems worth trying. Recent changes have also led to videos being suppressed on Youtube and followers and subscribers not seeing posts on Facebook, or people leaving Facebook due to privacy concerns. All social media is suffering in this way, save the Alt Tech platforms (like Minds and Gab) which have their own problems since, being free expression havens, their first ‘settlers’ have often been politically or socially unsavoury.

I think we’ve turned a corner on this socially, but the wheels of government and corporatocracy move much slower so it is now Terms of Service and regulation that we now find ourselves battling and when it comes to companies there’s a balance between the rights of the consumer and the rights of the owner that needs to be struck. The public square is in private hands and that presents all sorts of problems for our social and political institutions and our understanding of the right to free speech. The Count Dankula trial is probably the best example of how bad this can get and how important it is.

This is the environment in which I find myself working on more Gor material. Making a rod for my own back I suppose! I don’t intend to self-censor at all. We’ll see how bad things get I guess.

560I’m currently working on regular blogs and other content, trying to drive people to subscribe and support on Patreon to help push up a regular income, as well as a fantasy setting for Machinations of the Space Princess (odd, I know) and more Gorean supplements.

I massively appreciate your feedback, even if you don’t like something. So please don’t forget to rate, review, share and if you would like me on a podcast or stream to chat or be interviewed/interrogated, let me know. Questions and suggestions are always welcome any format, any where.

ZANG!

#RPG – Roll Up! Roll Up! Welcome to The Carnival of Grimness!

Carnival1.png

Genties, Ladymen and children of all genders!

Cast your functioning sensory organs in something approximating this direction and gaze in awe and wonder at the cavalcade of entertainment and dysfunction on show!

Step this way, and for the low, low fee of your attention you will find diversions most deviant, entertainments most exciting and writings most wicked. We practically (but not actually) guarantee your satisfaction and amusement!

Carnival2.png

Behold, the hall of Social Media! What distractions and horrors may lie inside these darkened halls?

Perhaps you seek the cheap thrill of voyeurism to be found in the unblinking gaze of Madam Narcissist!

Will you test your mettle and your patience in the Blue Bird Arena?

Perhaps one of our fabulous freaks, Bookface will entertain you with his mind reading tricks, targeted advertising and most diverting groups?

There are new attractions too, wild and untamed creatures from the furthest reaches of the internet, untouched by Amazon or Google. Dare you risk the Tent of Bulbs, it’s burlesque titillations or its house of games?

Try your luck against the Honest Interlocutor to see if you have the gift of the Gab, win yourself a stuffed frog.

Away from the hoi polloi are the caravans, offering delectations to our more discerning visitors.

If you are of a more cerebral nature, our players will entertain you with dice-based diversions or play out stories for your entertainment. There are books too, but the odds are you already Reddit…

Perhaps marvellous mechanisms will better meet your motivation, in which case sign up for a ride on our Steem-powered rollercoaster? It rises and falls with the speed and terror of a cryptocurrency’s value!

Finally, at the centre of our little circus, you will find the Astounding Arena of Audiovisual Announcement, where your eyes and ears will be tickled by recordings from The Great Beardini!

Don’t forget to visit our concession stands on your way out.

Here you can buy your own versions of our games and books.

Apparel to clad your fragile bodies and protect them from the elements.

Boards, cards, dice and devices to distract you from your imminent mortality.

Not to mention other, miscellaneous junk and tat we’re trying to get shot of.

Finally, can I perhaps tempt you with a season ticket?

For as little as a single of your Earth dollars, you can gain access to the carnival and the ringmaster as much as you may care to spend your time here, not to mention getting plenty of discounts on our other diversions.

We accept Many, Forms of Currency.

Failing that, please leave a tip in the jar on your way out.

And failing that… well… the trolls always need to be fed.
