Throne Report – February 17, 2018

Throne Report is Mystical Throne Entertainment’s online newsletter to discuss all things related to Mystical Throne Entertainment. This includes all projects being published or sponsored by Mystical Throne Entertainment and highlights of projects being developed by our development studios.

Greetings one and all and welcome to the latest Throne Report, Mystical Throne Entertainment’s online newsletter posted around the middle of every month. This online newsletter is meant to keep all our fans informed about what we’re working on, what’s been released, important announcements, and a look at what’s coming up.

General Update

Lots of catalog updates have been happening in the past month. The good news is the simple updates are almost done. There are a couple products that will be expanded and released as new editions, but the simple revised versions are almost done. Just note that some of them have changed names, but are still the same product.

No New Updates

There are currently no new updates regarding Licensed Settings, Third Party Products, Mythos, and Ancient World. Although these product lines have books in the “title brainstorming” category, there are no announcements to be shared at this time. When one of those books enters the planning queue, you’ll find out about it in our Throne Report.

Ultimate Guides

This month’s updates include the Knights Templar book, which will be updated to the new title Ultimate Medieval Guide: Knights Templar. After this will be the revised versions of Ultimate Iron Age Guide: Celts, Ultimate Settings Guide: Fey Realm, and Ultimate Age of Discovery Guide: Renaissance France for Savage Worlds. Ultimate Medieval Guide: Mongol Empire will actually be expanded to include new content before being released as a revised version.

Additionally, we have new books in development, but their official announcements will not occur until the content is sent in for editing. That way I have a better idea of the schedules.

Shadowed Earth

Cryptozoology #02: Otherworldly Beings is available for both Savage Worlds and Entropic Gaming System. The PDFs are available for only $3 and this book will be included in the Compendium print edition that will include books 1-5. Cryptozoology #03 will focus on heretics (in the eyes of the Inquisition) – these are the deadly humans of Shadowed Earth.

The first Powered by the Apocalypse (PbtA) book is in development – The Fallen. This book is part of Shadowed Earth and marks the opposite end of the scale that follows Beyond the Firelight and Judgment Day. Beyond the Firelight is survival horror where no one is really a hero; Judgment Day contains heroic characters that fight the horrors of Earth; and The Fallen places supernatural characters in the fight to save all of humanity. So why PbtA? Because it fits the character-driven, storytelling design of the game perfectly. The playbooks are in the hands of two very trusted RPG designers for feedback.

Additionally, I’ve wrapped-up initial research for the next Veiled PDF – Veiled Supplements #03: Pinkertons. This PDF will feature a delve into the history of the Pinkertons along with how you can incorporate them or one of their many investigations into Judgment Day or even use them as a baseline for your own Shadowed Earth setting.

Don’t forget to visit the Shadowed Earth Online content and the Encyclopedia Chaotica:

Little Heroes

A new quick Scenario playable in about an hour in in the works. This is another storyline written by my daughter Harper. We actually sat down today to outline it and will put it together and do a playtest of it tomorow. If your child has written a Scenario, send it to me and I can get it published and available to everyone!

Savage Insider

Savage Insider Issue #7: End of Days was released on January 1 to mark its 5th anniversary. Savage Insider Issue #8: Technology at the Table is pending release on April 1.

Mercenary Breed

All Mercenary Breed revisions are completed and released in PDF and POD. These new versions are available in the full-color 7×10 format and include a hardcover core setting guide that includes the content for Mercenary’s Handbook and Galaxy Guide. Additionally, Xenopedia is now available in a full-color hardcover to complete the suite of hardcover books.

Powered by the Apocalypse

Oh the plans I have here… The Fallen will only be the first with more to follow. But I don’t want to spoil anything… I’ll just say that after a month, even more ideas have popped into my head!
