This past month has been quite busy. I have been able to release a few Quick Start Guides that have been on my to do list for several months. The Ancient World: Quick Start Guide for both EGS and Savage Worlds was released, the Judgment Day: Quick Start Guide for both EGS and Savage Worlds was released, and finally the Mythos: Quick Start Guide for Savage Worlds has been revised. Continuing on with our current Quick Start Guide model, they will all be available for Pay What You Want in PDF and POD. The Print-on-Demand versions are available over at DriveThruRPG / RPGNow. What’s even better is that now that the cost of 70# standard color has become more affordable, the PWYW POD versions will be in color! This will be incorporated into the catalog refresh as well.
Layout on Five Points (Dark Streets) has been completed. Carlos Torreblanca, who did the amazing character portraits of the Pregenerated Characters in the Judgment Day: Quick Start Guide, has been commissioned for the last two interior pieces and the cover. The cover is an homage to Harper’s Weekly from the 19th century, a magazine/newspaper that saw much circulation in 19th century New York City. I’m very excited for what Carlos is going to put together. Considering how well he captured the Victorian supernatural hunter theme in Judgment Day, this should be awesome!
I’m waste-deep in research for the Ultimate Vikings Guide for Savage Worlds. There’s a lot of fact vs. fiction vs. embellishment vs. theory out there to sift through. I want to get as much fact and theory in to the book as I can and ignore as much fiction and embellishment as possible. This means lots of research, which I actually love! History is one of my passions.
From here, we have a number of books in development or pending development: Ultimate Renaissance France Guide, Ultimate Feudal Japan Guide, Ultimate Undead Guide, Ultimate Villainy Guide, Ultimate Psionics Guide, and possibly Ultimate Anglo-Saxon Guide.
Yep, lots more stuff coming for these Ultimate Guides sourcebooks.
Entropic Gaming System
Entropic Heroes: Fantasy is diligently being worked on. This book will be a toolkit much like the Science Fiction book, so there’s lots of content to add. A lot of development has been completed on this book lately and I’m quite pleased with the results so far.
Judgment Day: Quick Start Guide for EGS and Savage Worlds is available in PDF and POD. The PDF is full color, the POD is color with no background. Both are available for Pay What You Want. This book includes Pregenerated Characters and an adventure.
Don’t forget to visit the Shadowed Earth Online content and the Encyclopedia Chaotica:
Ancient World: Quick Start Guide for EGS and Savage Worlds is available in PDF and POD (the POD proofing copy of the EGS version is in transit). The PDF is full color, the POD is color with no background. Both are available for Pay What You Want. This book includes Pregenerated Characters and an adventure.
Mythos: Quick Start Guide – revised edition for Savage Worlds is available in PDF. The POD proofing copy is in transit and I expect to see it soon. The PDF is full color, the POD is color with no background. Both are available for Pay What You Want.
Broken Ruler Games
Broken Ruler Games has been quite busy as of late with the recent release of ScreenPlay Presents: Ironbound and the ScreenPlay core rulebook. There’s more coming down the pipeline, such as High Plains Samurai, in the upcoming months, so stay tuned for new ScreenPlay content!

New additions to the database have been put on hold while I clean up some recently changed links. I have to scrub the entire database again, but this one won’t take nearly as long.
