Greetings one and all and welcome to the latest Throne Report, Mystical Throne Entertainment’s online newsletter posted periodically on Fridays. 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.

Mercenary Breed: Hastilion Expanse
I am happy to say that writing for the Hastilion Expanse setting and campaign book is completed! The fiction hasn’t been finished, but that will be released as a separate book. Why? Because the setting and campaign book page count exceeds 325. Yikes! I’m working on lining up an editor, although I don’t expect editing to be finished for almost a year. This is a lot of editing! I will also note that this is the Savage Worlds edition. I haven’t decided on whether or not I will produce a Legend edition of this book.
Colonial Gothic: Portsmouth 1745
I’ve started back up with Portsmouth 1745 now that writing for the Hastilion Expanse is completed! This too will be a fairly large book, so I don’t expect it to be written, edited, and laid out for at least a year. However, I’m pretty excited to get back to it as I’ve had a lot of ideas brewing.
The Ultimate Knights Templar book is still in progress. I’m giving Charles White as much time as he needs to complete it so that it’s another awesome Ultimate Guide!
Entropic Gaming System
If you haven’t seen the news, the Entropic Gaming System is in the Open Beta Playtest right now. There’s an illustration on the right of the front page that you can use to guide you in the right direction if you’re interested in participating. Otherwise you can download the packet over to RPGNow or DriveThruRPG. I’m still debating on what setting to publish first using the Entropic Gaming System, but I’m pretty sure it will be Judgment Day. This is going to be a slightly different release method as the bestiary will be an EGS bestiary usable with Judgment Day. I’m doing it this way because I want all bestiaries to be universal and usable for non-official settings and multiple official settings. I also plan to do a Judgment Day 2.0 for Savage Worlds shortly after the EGS edition is released. That bestiary will also be universal for non-Judgment Day use.
The Shadowed Earth Anthology, Volume I is still in process. Two stories have been received and a third and possibly fourth are in the works. Although this is taking longer than I had originally hoped, these are turning out to be good stories and are worth the wait!
Don’t forget to visit the Shadowed Earth Online website for the Encyclopedia Chaotica:
Clean-up has resumed on the database. All battlemap and accessory entries are complete and I’ll be kicking off the RPGs shortly. Although I’ve done a lot of them previously, I’m going back through to make sure I like the results.
