Fulfillment on New Books

Fulfillment on New Books is slightly delayed. We had a problem with some of the new books that came in this week so book orders did not go out this weekend as planned. We apologize for the delay. The replacement books should be here this week and we will get them out to you as soon as possible.

Where we stand: Rappan Athuk

Orcus is pleased with the show of support. However being the pig god that he is, he is hungry for more adventures to come down the well.

For those of you just joining, here is a brief update. We hit SEVERAL bonus goals and have added a lot to the base pledges. You can find a full listing of the goodies on the FAQ section.

Also we have added a subscription for 6 more levels throughout the year to any pledge. For the subscription numbers we are at 239. When we hit 250 or more the book of additional levels will be a hardcover book.

We have offered some products for you to add onto your pledge at special kickstarter prices only such as Tome of Horrors (S&W), The Slumbering Tsar (PF), The Black Monastery (Either Version).

We still have dice bags left. Add $10 to your pledge. First 200 who do receive the exclusive FGG lotus dice bag.

We are only 160 more from 1000 backers which will allow for the $20 pledge and up to receive a set of dice, so keep spreading the word. We have only 2 days left!

Papa Frog and Blonde Frog continue to speak with stores and distributors about backing the project so we can win that title back.  But every dollar and backer helps. We have commissioned an artist to work on some artwork involving aliens and frogs. The question remains, what will the artwork reveal? In just a few days you'll have your answer. So keep spreading the word and getting your friends involved.

Dice Bags

Because we exceeded $215,000 on the Rappan Athuk Kickstarter we are offering EXCLUSIVE Frog God Games dice bags. 

This is the way it will work: All Pledges of $1000 or more will receive 1 free dice bag. Then the first 200 people who up their pledge $10 will receive a dice bag. When we are out we are out. We can track this on the backend but we will also be confirming it on the survey. 

The bags are the lotus bag that sits flat on the table when opened. They hold 12 standard dice. The bags are made of a green speckled fabric with a high quality black satin interior. They have a black draw string with two green translucent beads. The interior canvas label is sewn in and marked by us and the makers of the bag. The exterior label can be removed.

Kickerstarter Backers Get Even More...

We beat Vampire's Record and thus promised artwork in celebration. THIS IS ONLY A DRAFT but we wanted to share what we have so far. The final copy will be sent out as a PDF in color. Orcus Eats Vampires.

In our friendly competition for the Highest Funded RPG on Kickstarter, you, the fans win out. We are offering you even more at fantastic prices via this project only.

Add $100 to receive The Slumbering Tsar Saga. (Retail $149.95). Clocking in at 950 pages, The Slumbering Tsar Saga is the largest adventure ever written. It is only available in the Pathfinder Games System.

Add $75 to receive Tome of Horrors Complete for Swords & Wizardry only. (Retail $99.95). Monsters of all types! The Pathfinder Games System version is regrettably sold out.

A pledge of $150 plus an added $100 for The Slumbering Tsar Saga would not qualify. These items are determined by the actual pledge level and not the dollar amount pledged.

NTRPG Con Recap



Do you feel the love?


Matt's Game, Day 1



 P.S. Can you spot the frog... That's Matt's - we all have one now.

I was excited to play in Matt's game, however that lasted only a few minutes before I was whisked away. So, this part of the story will need to be told by someone who was there... um, Matt? 


Bill's Game Day 2

I was basically ordered to stop working so I could play in Bill's game. It was fun and very different. Lots of riddles and traps - but I won't say much more than that. As much as I tried to stay in the back this particular level was right up my alley and well, some Rogue had to take the lead, so why not this one! 

 I believe this picture is right before Greg and Skeeter plotted to have us all killed. Which then quickly resulted in both their deaths!

Yes, this is one of the hotel workers bringing us loads of beer in a garbage bag...

Matt's Game Day 3

I missed out AGAIN on Matt's game as I had to man the booth with our Art Director Chuck!


Bill's Game Day 3

This game completely cracked me up as our characters played "round, and round the mulberry bush" with monsters in chase. That would be my rogue sliding beneath it's legs (although it appears as though I'm surfing) in a quick attempt to get away. 

  The next part of the castle was not so nice...

At this moment we realized we were in for some deep doo-doo, literally...

That character all the way up there in front... alone, yeah that's me... apparently searching the castle on your own does not yield good results. But luckily for me Jillian had my back (once they found me) and I was able to be brought back to the flesh. Resulting sadly in no gold and no experience, but I did manage to make enemies of both the wizards in the group!

Greg's Game Day 4

I missed out on the 2 sessions of Pathfinder that Greg ran on Saturday so I was able to convince him to run a game on Sunday - yes during Matt's session which meant I miss out AGAIN on his game. Next year, Matt, I promise!

Any way, Skeeter, Dawn, Reg, and myself started the adventure out and in round 2 Skeeter died. That's 0 for 2 (at least with the times I've played with Skeet - I'm thinking he's not so good at this, but shhhh, don't tell him I said that). James jumped in to help and we needed it. I'm feeling a little sea sick... Was that before or after I swung down on the monster's back??? Hard to recall now.



For those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about, join us next year for some amazing fun and find out for yourselves! See you at the North Texas RPG Con in Dallas June 2013!

Press Release:

Frog God Games
Poulsbo, WA 98370
Bill Webb, CEO

Dallas, TX, (June 7th 2012) – FROG GOD GAMES, the makers of roleplaying games and books, today announced that they are acquiring Necromancer Games, the award-winning publishing house known for Necropolis, Rappan Athuk, City of Brass, Tomb of Abysthor, Crucible of Freya, Tome of Horrors, and many other famous titles. 

The purchase of Necromancer Games considerably increases Frog God Games’ influence in the tabletop gaming industry. “The merging of the companies made sense,” said Bill Webb, CEO of Frog God Games. “As primary developer of the Necromancer line of products, I created Frog God Games with the same aesthetics and design principles in mind. We are all about capturing that hard-edged Retro feel in both our Pathfinder Roleplaying Games and our Swords & Wizardry product lines.”  The acquisition will provide Frog God Games with the use of Necromancer Games extensive intellectual property, allowing re-imagination and expansion of existing work, as well as new products under both labels. Frog God Games will maintain a separate product line of Necromancer Games products, which so far has included the Tome of Horrors Complete and will soon include Rappan Athuk.  

Frog God Games will re-animate several of Necromancer Games’ products in the future to provide its customers with revised and expanded products for a variety of tabletop editions. “The integration of both companies will take place over the next few months. Our customers will continue to receive the same high quality books which they have come to expect” stated Webb. 

Necromancer Games, which will continue to operate under that name, is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Frog God Games. The company has not published new material since 2007, although it produced nearly 100 titles from 1999-2007.  The Company’s other founder, Clark Peterson will remain involved in an advisory capacity, and will continue to contribute to the company’s success. 

About Frog God Games
Founded in April 2010, Frog God Games publishes resources for the tabletop roleplaying games Pathfinder Roleplaying Games and Swords & Wizardry. Its products are known for their grand adventure settings and high quality production values. “If our hardcovers won’t last you a lifetime of use, we have not made a high enough quality product”, said Webb. Frog God Games currently serves over 2500 customers in USA, Canada, Brazil, Europe, South America, China, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, and has produced over 70 books for Pathfinder Roleplaying Games and Swords & Wizardry in the past two years. The writers of Frog God Games have won numerous ENnie Awards. For more information about Frog God Games visit its website at
