The Black Caste has waxed and waned significantly in its fortunes over the last fifty years. From honourable instruments of death to creatures of scorn and ridicule hiding – rather than lurking – in the shadows, only to slowly grow in importance again. It can be hard to think of the caste as honourable, but they have their own codes, restrictions and way of life. They’re a society hidden within a society, and once they take coin, they will take a life or die trying. Save in the most exceptional of circumstances.
Most Goreans reason that a person who is marked for death by an assassin must be deserving to some degree. Paying the – usually exorbitant – fee to have someone killed, all but guarantees their involvement in criminality, espionage or some other skullduggery and the presence of assassins used to help keep people honest.
Diminished in number, but not in skill, the Caste of Assassins is rebuilding its reputation as dealers of death without equal – even amongst the Scarlet Caste. Now they have set their sights on Tyrtaeus the Slaver, a friend and ally to the agents of the Priest-Kings whose death would be a significant blow.
It’s October, every gamer’s favourite month. It’s also the lead-up to Clipart Critter 500!
To celebrate, Postmortem Studios and Brad McDevitt are running a special sale from now until Halloween. Each day we’re going to post up a piece of monstrous stock-art at the low price of $1 (a 75% saving!)
Each sale will be active from its day of posting until the end of the month, so that busy shoppers can just go through the list and grab everything that they want on October 31st!
But why wait when you can get a dose of Halloween, every day!
We do a lot of stock art at Postmortem Studios, it’s a great way to expand our art library and to support artists. We also do a scholarship every year, paid for by proceeds from the preceding year’s art.
We’ve just hit 100 (at least in terms of stock number) and that seems like a good time to throw out a MEGABUNDLE!
This is over 100 pieces of art, of various genres and types, and makes a great starter-kit for a new RPG publisher or for someone who likes a lot of handouts and props for their games.
If this sounds like you, and you want to help support genre artists through school or times of hardship, head on over and hit that buy button!
If you are an artist and would like to donate art to be sold in support of this effort, please contact me at: grim AT postmort DOT demon DOT co DOT uk.
If you would like to use our established sales-front to sell your own stock art, contact me at the above email address as well.
Good news everyone! Not only have Teespring allowed the B&D t-shirt back, with a couple more adjustments, but we now also have caste shirts for players of Tales of Gor!
You can find these lovely vestments at our Teespring store and can hide your shame. They absolutely should not be torn, cut or otherwise altered to resemble slave rags or a ta-teera. Especially not the red one.
Head on over and pick yourself out something nice.
