[19:10] <+LostAbyss_INDE> Hello everyone, I’m James Palumbo currently working on Shattered
[19:10] *** Jesse has joined #rpgnet
[19:10] *** ChanServ sets mode +v Jesse
[19:11] <~Dan> (Howdy, Jesse!)
[19:11] <+Pul_INDE> Hey all, I’m Cody Wiemholt (Common typo :P) one of the developers working on Shattered,
[19:11] <+Tex_INDE> Hey folks, I’m Philip Barousse. I’ve been working on Shattered for a few years now.
[19:12] <+LostAbyss_INDE> Shattered is an RPG style book we have been working on for a few years and we have tried to incorporate everything we loved seeing in RPGs. It is set in a post-apocolyptic world where a majority of the population is dead. The world has rebuilt itself into city-states around certain resources like fresh water or technology.
[19:07] <+Vincent> Thanks Dan. My name is Vincent Baker. My game, Otherworlds is a science fantasy limitless rpg.
[19:08] <+Vincent> The premise is you adventure across worlds, shooting and looting with unique characters.
[13:27:23] <Ed> Well, hi, I’m Ed Jowett. I’m the creator of Era: Lyres, an RPG about telling stories of adventures… that you never actually had!
[13:27:48] <AmyA> I’m Amy Allworden, I worked with Ed to create some stories for the game.
[13:28:12] <Ed> It’s set in a Medieval / Low Fantasy city called Yarnolth, and the idea is to gain fame and fortune for yourself and your party – all of the perks of adventuring with none of the danger!
[20:04] <+NewtNewport> Howdo, I’m Newt Newport, Owner of D101 Games, Author of Crypts and Things, OpenQuest, Monkey, and publisher of Hearts in Glorantha/Gloranthan Adventures (both Licensed Fanzines) <done>
[20:04] <~Dan> Thanks, Newt!
[20:05] <~Dan> So what’s the premise of Crypts & Things? 🙂
[20:05] <~Dan> (Howdy, CasWarner!)
[20:06] <+NewtNewport> its basically Swords & Sorcery , with a slight 70s/80s British Bias. So sure I pay homage to the holy trinity of Robert E. Howard, HP Lovecraft and Clark Ashton Smith, but theres also a large Micheal Moorcock influence
[20:07] <+NewtNewport> plus early Fighting Fantasy and D&D as it was in early White Dwarf

[20:04] <+lizchai> Hello! I am Liz and I am here with Floor. We are the co-founders of Angry Hamster Publishing (angryhamsterpublishing.com) and we just launched our first game WITCH on Kickstarter.
[20:05] <+lizchai> If you haven’t heard of our game yet, you can check out the campaign here: (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1568822309/witch-a-dark-modern-fantasy-role-play-game)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1568822309/witch-a-dark-modern-fantasy-role-play-game
[20:05] <+Floor> Haha I was just about to shamelessly post that link too!
[20:05] <~Dan> (There’s no shame in self promotion here. 🙂 )
[20:06] <+lizchai> For a very breif summary – In WITCH you play a member of the Fated, a witch or warlock who has sold their soul to a demon for power.
[19:05] <+CJCarella> Greetings, y’all. I’m C.J. Carella. You may know me from such games as The Buffy the Vampire Slayer RPG, assorted RIFTS books and the WitchCraft and Armageddon RPGs.
[19:06] <+CJCarella> More recently, I’ve started writing fiction. My first trilogy, The New Olympus Saga, came out in 2014, and the first book of my newest setting, Shadowfall: Las Vegas, came out in February.
[19:06] <+CJCarella> (Link: http://www.amazon.com/Shadowfall-Las-Vegas-C-J-Carella-ebook/dp/B00U1QZUTO/)http://www.amazon.com/Shadowfall-Las-Vegas-C-J-Carella-ebook/dp/B00U1QZUTO/
[19:07] <+CJCarella> A short story in the same setting as Shadowfall, Bad Vibes, is currently free on Amazon: (Link: http://www.amazon.com/Bad-Vibes-C-J-Carella-ebook/dp/B00MAYJCVM/)http://www.amazon.com/Bad-Vibes-C-J-Carella-ebook/dp/B00MAYJCVM/
[19:07] <+CJCarella> This new setting is a blend of action and horror, with a dash of humor and film noir elements.
[19:08] <+CJCarella> Basically, a major supernatural event in Las Vegas leads to the world realizing Lovecraftian entities are real and trying very hard to invade our reality.
