« on: September 07, 2016, 07:14:10 PM »
We are 72 hours from the end of the funding period, and within $200 of the 3rd stretch goal, custom d10's as add-ons with a complementary d10 for all physical backers.

the custom d6 is already unlocked. The sixth goal is an OSR print run.


The video should be finished Tuesday. I will add some art, maps and a mockup of the cover sometime this week.

Feedback is requested. If you don't have any, please leave a note telling me you were there.

« on: July 24, 2016, 06:16:37 PM »

Just waiting for the last of the playtest feedback to come in.

Dark Naga / Free 2 page encounter from Dark Naga Games
« on: May 08, 2016, 06:51:54 PM »
I wrote a quick, single encounter prequel to "The Lost Temple of Forgotten Evil" last week.
It should be released this week, and will be free.
The inspiration came from a local DM whose party is a little low level for the adventure.
This side quest is a chance encounter with a trade caravan, the players, bandits and some cultists. It give the players a glimpse at the cult in action, and offers about 350xp per player.
I plan on releasing 2 or 3 more of these for LToFE to help inspire people to check out the adventure.
Will post the link once Fat Goblin Games finishes final prep and posts it.

Dark Naga / Coming soon from DNA
« on: April 19, 2016, 09:45:38 PM »
"What Happened In Between"
A collection of 14 side encounters to help fill in the gaps between adventures or complete a level before heading to that next big adventure.
Will support OSR, 5e and Pathfinder (not clear if 1 mega product, 2 or 3 separate products)
Written by Logan McNeil, with Kevin Watson

Logan is also writing some of the lore for the 2nd part of the Haunting of Hastur series, "A Zikurat in the Clay"

The PDF is available now.
The PoD in premium color will be available in a month or so.
The PoD is not detached cover, and has a slightly different layout because there is no option for detached covers or printing maps on the inside of the cover.

Dark Naga / Print Proof in hand.
« on: April 08, 2016, 09:34:18 PM »
The printer was able to overcome some issues and get the proof to me today.
It looks good.
I will pour over it this weekend, and baring any major issues, place the print order Monday.

At last count about half had taken delivery. I will allow them exclusivity for 2 weeks, and will release to the general public on April 4th.
The PDF will be $9.99 and will include a 2nd PDF that collects all of the art and maps in a format easy to use at the table. (One map or image per page)

Dark Naga / PDF file for 5e/OSR edition is finished
« on: March 18, 2016, 05:10:05 PM »
And is being distributed to backers this weekend.
I am not certain when the print run will occur, or the general availability of PDF, or PoD or the Pathfinder PDF or PoD's. But they are all in the works.

Also, there is a bonus waiting at backerkit for all backers. A little thank you from Adventure A Week.com

Over the next few months, expect to see 5e/OSR PDF, Pathfinder PDF, Both in a bundle, 5e/OSR PoD, Pathfinder PoD versions of The Lost Temple of Forgotten Evil on your favorite OBS, Paizo and The Tabletop Library.

Dark Naga / Backerkit for Lost Temple of Forgotten Evil
« on: March 13, 2016, 12:16:36 PM »
Tomorrow, the Backerkit surveys are going out to the backers.
I do not see a way for people to jump into the campaign via Backerkit, but I am checking.
The PDF's will be available via OBS (DrivethruRPG/RPGNow) about a week after I send the download coupons to the players.
The PoD version will not be identical in form to my backer print run because OBS doesn't support detached covers (at least not yet), however, it will be nice.

I may be able to extend the print run for those who prefer physical to digital and prefer the detached cover to the PoD version.

If that is you, PM me and we'll work something out

Edit: I found how to add backers. It is a manual process on my end. PM me if you wish to be added as a backer with the email address you use for DrivethruRPG/RPGNow

Dark Naga / First project for Dark Naga has completed it's funding.
« on: March 07, 2016, 08:22:30 AM »
I'd like to thank all the backers and all the people who spread the word. The Lost Temple of Forgotten Evil will be a great looking adventure, only because of the support you have provided.

If you have an issue or concern with anything please let me know. Customer Service is important to me.

What remains to be done:

OSR stats for the head priest, Cyne. Still not 100% content there. NPC descriptions from the backers who picked that reward are expected Tuesday. I expect to have them integrated by Friday.

I have prelim sketches for the maps. Final cartography is anticipated the week of St Patrick's Day. One piece of the initial art is contingent on a final map. That piece should follow a day or two behind that final map.

Stretch goal art is in progress. Both NPC portraits are delivered. The half page piece is almost done

Tomorrow, I am going to bundle all of the art so far into an illustration PDF. I plan to use this to get more familiar with OBS publishing, including POD. It will be updated when the last two pieces of are are delivered, so please consider waiting until then for POD orders. For backers who want a POD illustration book, it will be at cost. Codes will be supplied when all the twists and turns are successfully navigated.

Tomorrow, I am going to order the dice. Delivery is typically two weeks from payment.

Tomorrow , I am also going to setup backer kit. This will make fulfillment and adding items easier.

I have been working on layout of the adventure in InDesign with placeholders for the pending art and maps. I expect to have the NPC descriptions and OSR stats for Cyne integrated by Friday. Final layout is expected the week of March 21, which is also when funds should be released to me.

From there, the remaining steps are upload to OBS and distribute email coupons to backers, send print layout to printer for proof, examine proof, possible loop here, then place print order. The print order should take two weeks from clicking submit to delivery at my door. From there, fulfillment will begin. These steps are far enough out that dates are currently fuzzy. As they firm up, I will be more exact.
