Thanks to Tim and Salome at Ghostwoods, the DH:LoF Anthology is now available on Kindle stores both in the UK and the US. Follow the link to find the details.
Over on Eric Franklin’s site Talking Game, there’s a chance to meet a new character to perhaps introduce to your own campaign.
Eric’s wife, Stephanie, is a huge fan of all things Frankenstein. This drew her to DH:LoF, and to writing one of her semi regular Character Generation Project entries. The results are on the blog for all to see and to borrow.
We’re hoping to convince Stephanie to write more of her thoughts on Promethea but, in the meantime, do visit Talking Game and have a poke around.
The interviews that various contributors to Tales of Promethea were kind enough to do a little while before Christmas of last year are now available on this site.
Wait! There’s more!
You’ll find a bunch more goodies have been added to the Interviews section of the site. We’ve included an exclusive excerpt from the ToP work of the writers who were interviewed; that’s Matt Gibbs, Kate Harrad, and Stuart Boon. In the interview with Jan Pospisil, you’ll see the initial sketch and finished image for the cover.
Wait! There’s even more!
In the Dark Texts section of the site, you’ll find a download of one of the stories from the anthology – Way Out. That’s right; a complete tale from the book in PDF form.
Happy… ummm… February? Yeah, we’ll call it a late Valentine’s prezzie.
Over on the games site Life and Times of a Philippine Gamer, Jay has said nice things about Tales of Promethea. Go for the review, stay for the rest of the site.
Over on the Cubicle 7 Entertainment website are interviews with Tales of Promethea contributors Kate Harrad and Stuart Boon. They’re terribly nice and terribly talented and their stories are deeply disturbing. Read the interviews, then go buy a copy of the anthology.
Update! The interviews with editor and story contributor Matt Gibbs and cover artist Jan Pospíšil have also been posted. You can read those here.
Monday morning, and our first review of short fiction anthology ‘Tales of Promethea’ is in. As part of the Nearly Enough Dice Podcast, the indomitable Liz reviews the book. Go have a listen.
Just in time for Christmas, the short fiction anthology ebook ‘Tales of Promethea’ is available for purchase!
Thirteen stories from ten authors equals a load of Promethean goodness, available for all types of ebook reader at an impulse-buy price. Head over to the Cubicle 7 Entertainment site for further details, and from there follow the link to DriveThru Fiction to download your copy.
There will be a bunch of interviews and excerpts appearing on the Cubicle 7 site over the coming days, and we’ll link to them (and eventually archive them) here on this site. Watch this space, as ever!
As many of you read over on our Facebook page, we had a meeting in Aberdeen over the weekend.
This was to discuss a supplement that draws material from the fiction written for the DH:LoF core book, the Resistance supplement, and the upcoming anthology Tales of Promethea. In attendance were Iain Lowson, Magz and Neil Wiseman, Steve Ironside, and a whole lot of tea. Many biscuits died to bring you the information that will appear in the supplement. And some Chinese food.
The supplement is tentatively called ‘Tales of Promethea – Unbound’. It’s still very much in the early stages, but the plan is to look at each story and from them draw a whole bunch of material that you can use in your games. We’ll stat-up NPCs of all the major characters, for example. Neil and Steve will come up with rules and gaming suggestions based on things in the stories for GMs to pick and choose to suit their campaigns. Magz and myself, with major input from Neil and Steve, will produce additional details of the new information the stories give on life inside Promethea at a variety of times in its history. Of course, there will also be scenario ideas and other such gaming goodness that will help GMs to spread the love to their players.
We’ll keep you informed of the progress of the supplement here and on the Facebook page, and of when you can pick up a copy of the anthology too.
Here’s a shout-out for our American chums!
Fancy going to an excellent gaming con on your side of the pond? Of course you do! Fancy going to said con and playing DH:LoF? Of course you do! Your friend and ours, David Crowell, is running a DH:LoF game at this year’s Carnage Con
Here’s the details David passed on: “Every year in November, Carnage hosts a weekend of tabletop gaming at the Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT. This year, the fifteenth such occasion, from the afternoon of Friday, November 2nd to the afternoon of Sunday the 4th, three days are dedicated to playing the best and newest in games, including board games, card games, miniatures, and role-playing games.”
The scenario is as follows: “R67 Roll Up! Roll Up! (GM: David Crowell Room: W) It’s 1910, and Victor Frankenstein got it right. From the ashes of the former Romania, he has created the brave new world of Promethea, a utopia where the bodies of the dead are harvested to provide health and long life for the living. Unfortunately, this silver cloud has a dark lining. On his way to building his dream, Frankenstein had to make a deal with the devil—several devils, actually. A ruthless and corrupt totalitarian state has grown up. The country is in a cold civil war between the Promethean Domestic Security Agency and the Resistance. Just now, a group of circus performers traveling through Brasov County has been captured by the infamous Brasov Hunting Club. With only their exceptional training and each other to rely on, can they escape to safety? Dark Harvest: Legacy of Frankenstein (2-5 Players) (Saturday 1p-5p)”
Those of us who can’t attend are all looking forward to reading a report of the game.
(Running a game at your local club or con? Let us know!)
The wonderful Czech artist Jan Pospisil has blogged.
Specifically, he’s blogged about the process of creating the cover for the Anthology, due in October this year. It’s your first chance to see the finished result, without the logo, so you can appreciate the work involved. It’s a gorgeous bit of art, I’m sure you’ll agree. Go see!!
