The Foreword Series

Foreword is a new series I am putting together.  These supplements will address alternatives to “YAMIAB” also known as “You All Meet In a Bar.” Yes, it’s traditional. Yes, many fantasy RPG players don’t require more than that. But I am offering this as a means of making your characters fit together more cohesively, giving each other a common thread of experience. It also helps the GM to create a framework upon which to structure stories that you play. The first book is Foreword: Mercenaries, and will be available exclusively through DriveThruRPG, on the Sam Chupp Media page. Mercenaries will … Continue reading The Foreword Series

Coming in May: The Book of the Kiss (Libro Suavium)

I am 90% done with this book. I need a few more editing passes, and to start layout. We are currently at 52,000 words! I have been wanting to write a romance sourcebook for fantasy for some time now. This is partly because I love a good romance story, partly because I have had a lot of very wonderful roleplaying conducting romance stories, and partly because I haven’t seen a book quite like it out there. Once again the goal is to make it system agnostic: you should be able to pick this book up and use it no matter … Continue reading Coming in May: The Book of the Kiss (Libro Suavium)

More is Merrier: House of Bards

Another entry in the burgeoning Fantasy Espionage sub-genre! Evil Hat has released, “Pay What you Want”, the following supplement for Fate Core:–A-World-of-Adventure-for-Fate-Core House of Bards focuses on the political side of intrigue and espionage. If you are interested in focusing on the shadowy world of Espionage in your House of Bards campaign, Encryptopedia will be an excellent supplement for House of Bards.

Inclusivity? You’re soaking in it…

                    My books are inclusive. I take some extra effort to make them so. Are they perfect? No. Are they going to hit you over the head with how inclusive they are? No. But they are. Take for example, the characters in the latest book “The Forever Diamonds,” which came out yesterday. Of the 15 characters, 7 are female, 7 male, 1 is non-gendered. 9 are People of Color, 5 are White, and 1 is a reptile (very pretty color reptile though). Two of the men are lovers. A woman has … Continue reading Inclusivity? You’re soaking in it…

Update on New Project: Forever Diamonds

I am at 5K on Forever Diamonds, yay! Still have a fair piece to go – I think this one will be from 20K to 32K words.  Forever Diamonds is my campaign-length adventure sourcebook for Encryptopedia. So far I have covered bits about: The Heralds of the Queen, a faction that originated in the main Encryptopedia soucebook. The information presented in Forever Diamonds will be in addition to, not to replace, the information in Encryptopedia. So those of you who already own Encryptopedia will be safe. The Shadowhood, a new faction representing a new type of espionage organization called the … Continue reading Update on New Project: Forever Diamonds
