[Postmortem Studios] November Round Up



It’s been an extremely busy month here at Postmortem Studios, two conventions in one month will take it out of the best of us and Indiecon and Dragonmeet were no exceptions. Both events were bedevilled by problems beyond anyone’s control. Indiecon was located next to some of the hardest hit areas in the heaviest rain and worst flooding seen in many years in the UK but somehow survived – though we all got very wet and the third day of the con was held in Oz. Dragonmeet was similarly assaulted by weather issues as well as the vagueries of trainline maintenance and stoppages on the underground. Luckily I sold a boatload of stuff and didn’t have to carry so much all the way home. All things considered a great success and – yet again – money and time willing I do hope to make more conventions in the coming years.

Indiecon saw successful playtesting of the FATE powered Agents of SWING as well as some new adventures for Blood! and ’45 which should be appearing on RPGNOW in PDF form before too long.



Because I’ve been doing so much freelancing for other companies there hasn’t been a lot of activity with new products this month. However we do have a good selection of new Clipart Critters by the inestimable Brad McDevitt, including some new bundles so that you can pick up some very decent art on the cheap as props for your game table or for you to use in your own gaming publications. Don’t forget to check out the work of our other artists as well.



Over on our journal/website there’s an ongoing poll game, like a choose your own adventure game with multiple participants, this one based around a zombie apocalypse using the Blood! system and with you playing a British teenager caught up in the events as they unfold. Participate there and also keep an eye on news, events, sales information, reviews, publishing partnerships and so on.

Preview from the next TobyArt

A click should take you to the big version.
You can purchase the earlier set HERE.


Today I have:

  • Started reading through STARBLAZER ADVENTURES (my preferred implementation of FATE) with an eye to simplifying things a little, slimming it down and using it as the rules for Agents of S.W.I.N.G. (The 60s – 70s mash-up action game).
  • Uploaded more Clipart Critters which will be coming out over the rest of the month. If you want  to get some very good, and very chea, art to support your games or for your gaming projects, be sure and check it out HERE.
  • Half finished writing up the zombie apocalypse demo scenario for Blood! which I wrote for Indiecon last year.
  • Proofread the next installment in The Life of Angst, Chav: The Knifing, and commissioned the art.

Praise for TobyArt

“Most clip art products aren’t even worth the time to look at, much less the money to buy, and at 15 dollars, War Priests seems like an expensive purchase. However, the art within is spectacular, nothing that would look out of place in any professionally published product. The art has character and poise, and grabs the reader instantly. At 10 pieces of art, each picture itself costs only 1.50, making it a steal compared to the average Postmortem clip art product. If you’re an independent publisher, or just a guy like me who likes to spruce up the products he puts online, this item is definitely worth your consideration. I look forward to seeing more of Toby’s fine work.”

Obviously I think all our art is a steal considering how little it costs! Still, you can buy TobyArt…
