Two modules for $15 + free shipping!

Thanks to an arrangement with RC Pinnell (aka Thorkhammer on the Dragonsfoot forums), I'm happy to offer a special two-module combo of RC Pinnell's GS1 Sanctum of the Stone Giant Lord plus my own F1 The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies at a very special price of $15 (US) with FREE shipping to anywhere in the world! (So in a way, this is a better deal for non-US buyers than it is for US buyers.)

The only way I can offer the modules at this price is by handling the sales & shipping myself, and I don't have enough spare time to handle that forever, so this is a limited time and limited quantity offer. There are only 20 combo available at this price, and the offer will only be good for 2 weeks. As soon as the 20 combos are sold or two weeks have passed (whichever happens first), the offer is over.

US orders will be sent by USPS Priority Mail in a Priority Mail flat-rate envelope. Non-US orders will be shipped in a 8.5" x 11" manilla envelope via First Class international mail.

Update: Combos are Sold Out! Thanks very much to everyone who purchased a combo!

(Plenty of copies of F1 are still available at FRP Games at normal price, and GS1 is still available at RC Pinnell's Lulu storefront.)

F1 at the Printers

I approved the final proofs for Dungeon Module F1 – The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies yesterday, and the first print run is now in progress!

It took a little longer than I had hoped to get through the proofing process, which means it won't have a February release. On the bright side, the print run will be finished very early next week, and I should be accepting orders and shipping at that time.

If all goes well, the next post here will include details on how to order!

Friday, February 13, 2009


I picked up the proofs for The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies today! It was pretty exciting to see production-quality physical copies of the module: Three sets of the interior pages, plus a half dozen covers in a variety of different coatings.

I finalized the pesky cover stock & coating details that were plaguing me last week, which is great. Unfortunately, the proofs revealed couple things that need to be fixed before the final copies are printed. (I should say, "fortunately," because that's what proofs are for: Finding the unforeseen layout or production issues before you print a ton of product. So the proofs did their job.)

Because of the holiday, I won't be able to get new proofs (to verify the fixes) until the end of next week at the earliest, which means the final printing can't begin in earnest until the week of February 23rd, and that assumes I won't need a third cycle of proofs.

So The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies is still on track for a February release, but only just barely.

In other news, I'm investigating what it will take to produce content for another roleplaying game that is neither a flavor of D&D, nor a clone or simulacrum...

F1 – The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies (front cover)

Peter Mullen's front cover illustration looks amazing! Click on the cover image above for a larger view. The release of Dungeon Module F1 – The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies just got a lot closer. I'm still talking with the printers about a few details, but I hope to have printed copies in my hands next week (knock on wood!), and I'll start to take orders shortly after that. Stay tuned...

I want to help you Self-Publish!

Do you have a module or dungeon you'd like to self-publish? Do you want it to have an authentic old-school cover that reminds you of S4, B1, or G1 (mono)? Do you want an impressive, clean and functional interior layout?

I am looking for old-school gaming content to produce. If you have modules or supplements that need editing, layout, or high-quality cartography, please contact me.

I can produce great-looking, professional results in a variety of formats that are ready for immediate customer download as well as print on demand. Samples available on request. If you are trying to generate professionally printed product, I can help facilitate that too, by getting stuff printed at the local print shop – the same one I use for the physical product that Chaotic Henchmen Productions will soon be selling.

I'm interested in helping with both free and for-profit products. For free products, in exchange for the work, I ask for credit (to both myself and Chaotic Henchmen Productions) for any work done, as well as right to advertise the product on the Chaotic Henchmen Productions web site. You keep the copyright. My rates for profit projects are flexible based on need.

F1 – Cover Art Preview

This preview for Dungeon Module F1 – The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies is another preliminary illustration, this time a full-color cover illustration by Peter Mullen. When it's finished, it will be filled with more gorgeous color, and Peter may make a minor change or two as necessary.

I'll have to let the picture do the talking this time, because a blurb from the room description would be a spoiler. The warrior in green better watch out; he's about to be surrounded by giant scorpions! I hope the magic user's spell is potent!

F1 – Art Preview #3

This art preview for Dungeon Module F1 – The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies is a preliminary illustration by Andy "ATOM" Taylor; the final version of the illustration in the module may have a minor change or two, and it will be cleaned up and inked.

"A 10 foot tall yellow and white marble statue of the sun god dominates the room. It stands near the eastern wall and looks toward the western archway with its face gazing downward and arms outstretched in a pose that suggests both grandeur and kindness. Although the ceiling does not contain any light shafts, the room is still quite bright and warm, for the statue’s eyes beam radiant sunlight into the center of the room. Carved murals on the walls convey esteem for growth, agriculture, and life."

F1 – Art Preview #2

Here's another art preview from Dungeon Module F1 - The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies, again by Jason Braun:
"A marble sarcophagus lies at the center of the room. Its sides are inscribed with imagery of palm and papyrus trees, and its lid shows a nondescript humanoid with a featureless face. In front of the sarcophagus is the fallen corpse of a half-orc female. Lying next to her are a crowbar, a footman’s mace, and a burnt torch. Completely filling a semicircular alcove at the back of the chamber is a 12 foot tall iron statue of a jackal-headed man wearing foreign garb that accentuates its musculature."

F1 – Art Preview

The first interior art preview from Dungeon Module F1 – The Fane Of Poisoned Prophecies is an illustration by Jason Braun:
"Here, a startlingly pungent smell and a camphoraceous odor unsettle the senses and speed breathing. The smells waft upward from a variety of wicker and glass vessels set at the flanks of a squat granite altar whose sides are covered with blood-red hand, ear, and mouth prints, many of which appear to be made by children. Behind the altar stands a 5 foot tall whitewashed stone statue depicting a bald, androgynous human wearing only a tunic. The statue covers its eyes with its hands, and its mouth is open slightly as if to speak. The walls are densely packed with runes, symbols, and other writing..."

F1 – The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies (back cover)

Our first product is Dungeon Module F1 – The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies, a 24 page 1st edition AD&D® module for character levels 4-6. From the front cover:
For years, lords and warriors have delivered riches to the remote Sun Temple in exchange for prophecies from the mysterious oracle who dwells within. But of late, the oracle’s advice has soured.

Some say the oracle has gone mad and lost her powers. Others believe she has forsaken her allegiances and seeks to collapse the kingdom. Rogues whisper of enormous piles of gold and jewelry within the Sun Temple – perhaps no longer guarded. Wealth, power, and surprising secrets await those who dare explore the Sun Temple and beyond!

The back cover (click on the preview above) features a color illustration by Jason Braun, who is also one of the interior artists. Look for more art previews later in the week.

Although it contains a backstory for the DM to use (or not!), The Fane of Poisoned Prophecies doesn't foist a plot on the players. The adventure environment allows for a wide variety of possible character motivations and goals, so the "plot" of the module is whatever the characters make of it. It offers the potential for fighting, exploration, interaction, puzzle solving, and more, so it should provide just as much fun for Chaotic Evil characters as it does for Lawful Good ones. It's written with many old-school sensibilities in mind, but it can be easily adapted to new-school play styles.

Like any 1st edition AD&D® module, it is largely compatible with 2nd edition, the basic game, the original game, as well as the various clones and simulacra.

Details: 24 pages, saddle stitched, with full-color cover and black & white interior
