running out on Tome orders! I will extend the order period through July
4 (I am not sending to the printer on the holiday), but that is all.
June 23, 2011
with the printer yesterday, and Splinters 7-8 will be here next week. I
expect several bnooks to arrive in the next 10 days, and apologize for
shipping delays, but its coming soon.
In other news, most of you
will notice that I have put up hundreds of books from my personal stash
of Necromancer Games books. All of these are in limited supply, and will
NEVER be reprinted in their original form. Not everything is available
(Rappan Athuk 3, Tome 1 and Abysthor), but most are available below
MSRP. The rares (like Reloaded, Judges Guild, and a few others) are set
at market price (well above MSRP). This is probably the last stash of
old NG books in the world (I bought out the remainder of the
warehouses), so buy up, when they are gone they are gone!

7 and 8 got lost in the printer process, and are going to be delayed a
bit. Don't panic, its all set now, just a week or two delay.
IMPORTANT!!! Tome of Horrors Complete is only for sale for 16 more days.
I will only print this monster once, so order now, to get this
tremendous piece of RPG history. This will be the LARGEST monster book
ever made to date, weighing in at over 800 pages, and once its gone, its
gone. I am pretty sure you could resell it on Ebay in 2 years for much
more than it costs (not that you would want to), but since I have to
arange printing, I am cutting it off as soon as it goes to press
(estimated as the first week in July), and I am not printing extras. To
Never before have all three volumes been updated to the
Pathfinder Roleplaying Game in their entirety and released as a single,
hardbound tome. Monsters from the aberrant to the yellow musk zombie
appear in this book, and everything in between—that’s over 700 monsters.
But that’s not all; the appendices bring just as much to the table from
templates to hazards to a treatise on poison variations in nearly 50
types of venomous snakes. There are also new feats, planes of existence,
strange beings beyond mortal ken, and plenty of charts dividing the
compiled monsters by CR, type, and terrain.
But it’s more than
just that, because the entire compilation has also been updated to the
Swords & Wizardry rules for release as another version of the
volume. And in this version, the space freed up by the smaller stat
blocks is filled by sample monster lairs and encounters with the
hundreds of different monster types featured in the tome. Never before
has this massive selection of monsters been updated and brought with
these resources all together in one place for use in your own game. And
before any Pathfinder players cry foul over the monster lair additions
in the Swords & Wizardry version of The Tome of Horrors Complete,
this lair information will be available as a free download at the Frog
God Games website talesofthefroggod.com for you to use as well.
you’ve got the monsters—both from the original edition of the game and
new,—the templates, the multiple appendices on rules, planes, and the
n’gathau, and a truckload of sample encounters and lairs to throw at
your players, all together in one easy-to-use book. That’s why we call
it The Tome of Horrors Complete!
The Tome of Horrors Complete sample lairs will
be included in the Swords and Wizardry volume and as a free download
for the Pathfinder volume! This will be comprised of hex-style lairs by a
writing team led by John Stater!

home late last night from PaizoCon, after a great weekend. Special
thanks to the Reaper Miniatures folks, who not only taught my 6-year old
to paint, but helped him paint 15 miniatures over a 14 hour period. I
kept trying to take him back, but they insisted on keeping him. We had a
great time running SW games all weekend, and a number of the staff
played some Pathfinder as well. Lisa and Erik were gracious hosts as
always, they are a total class act, and we all owe them a lot for
keeping "real D&D" alive. I got to hang out some with Clark Peterson
as well, it wqas great to see my old buddy, and I'll be plugging his
stuff soon (you know it will be good).
I was able to pack up
everything I could tonite and will ship tomorow. Those of you who
ordered Splinters 7-9 will have to wait a bit longer, as the books are
still at press. Rest assured I will ship them as soon as they arrive.
Two cons in 10 days has me fried, but I am recovering well, and should
feel healthy as a horse in no time flat.
June 7, 2011
got back from Dallas after a very successful North Texas RPG Con. Doug
Rhea and the boyz should be congratulated on one of the best cons I have
ever attended. Matt and I got to play all weekend with the likes of
Dennis Sustare, Erol Otus and many other celebrities. Lots of you guys
were there too, and the Mythus Tower room was rockin' with people all
weekend. I am a litle behind on shipping again, but will try to get
everything out this Friday that was ordered while I was away. Special
thanks to Jon Hershberger and Alan Grohe for helping us out selling
books at the show (BlackBlade), and to all the folks who put the Con
together. We will be back for sure. If you ever want to hit a Con where
old school gamers just play all day and night for 4 days, this is your
show. We even had a few younger folks to complement the grognard patrol,
including one very special little 11 year old girl who handled herself
quite well (we had to cut off her doughnut supply to avoid the sugar
high though). I played with 4 kids under the age of 15 at the show, and
all were engaged, polite and quite intelligent. I am pretty tired, I
have to admit--I DM'ed 3 8-10 hour sessions for as many as 15 players at
a time; Matt did 4 sessions with as many as 18 at a time. It was crazy,
but believe it or not, we stayed on task and got some very productive
exploration done. Dennis Sustare got the "Saturday Night Special" magic
item from me (a magic axe, +1/+4 vs undead, allows turning ability as a
4th level cleric) and John January got the big prize from Matt (+2 cloak
of protection). Mythus Tower is the ongoing campaign run for 3 years
now at the Con (and only at the Con), so folks character sheets were
saved by Matt and we will take up where we left off next year!
up is PaizoCon, where Dawn, Skeeter and I will all be in attendance.
Clark will be joining us this year to showcase his new material in
preparation for release in 2012. Oh yeah, everyone welcome Dawn Fischer
to the FGG team. Dawn will be making sure that all of us use correct
grammar and spelling (we are not always the best at that), and helping
improve quality of all the FGG products.
Ok, off to school camp, I
shall return Friday and start packing books. Thanks again everyone for
your patronage, patience, and making this a fun job. Its people like
those I played with this weekend that are the reason I do this stuff.
