Mass Production Completed!
3 months ago – Fri, Nov 17, 2023 at 08:45:04 AM

Hello everyone! Yesterday I got word from my manufacturing rep that all everything (books, stickers, dice, etc) has been made and they're in the process of packing it all up to ship. The shipping time is still TBD at the moment, but we are inching closer and closer to fulfillment which means I will be locking addresses soon via Backerkit.

You will receive a notification when that happens and if you need to update your mailing address you'll be able to.

Other Products!

Artist Jordyn Boci is hard at work casting the limited run of witch masks inspired by Peter Mullen's cover art for Sky ov Crimson Flame!

For those interest, there are still a few left to pre-order over at the webstore!

The print run of Sky ov Crimson Flame t-shirts has arrived (thanks Tiger Wizard!) This was a limited run and once the pre-orders go out in December there many be a few left to buy. We'll keep thee updated!

Upcoming Kickstarters!

Here are a couple of Kickstarter I'm interested in!

  • All Battle Maps are created with RPG Stories World-Builder VTT in 3D and exported in 2D top view.
  • 20 unique environments, each featuring 5 battle maps, offering everything you might need for your games.
  • These maps can be used for random encounters or serve as inspiration for creating entire campaigns.
  • All Battle Maps will be provided with and without a grid, in the appropriate file size for VTTs, and 8K .pngs
  •  New Patron: Krampus—The Horned Ooser himself as patron for lawfully righteous wizards and elves looking to keep people in line, even if they need the devil to do it! Krampus comes with a full write-up, including a new feature we are adding to all our patrons: a rumors table, to help introduce this patron into game play. Everything you expect to see in a full write-up is present, plus rules for the waxing and waning of Krampus' influence over the seasons, and ways in which characters can become Get of Krampus!
  •  Cullpepper's Herbal—This installment of Cullpepper's Herbal focuses on the herbs that are most thought of in the holiday season: Holly, Mistletoe, and Ivy.
  •  Krampus missions—Sure, you signed up to help the old Bartl curb the wicked, but now he goes and assigns you actual missions? Included in this article are 7 missions that adherents of Krampus can be assigned in return for their invoking his name! These missions are suitable for inserting into game play pretty much anywhere, and are sure to challenge those who have pledged a deal with Klaubauf himself.
  •  Mari Lwyd—An old Welsh tradition come to life! In this article, the judge can develop a Mari Lwyd that will challenge characters in truly unique ways.
  •  Weapons of Krampus—Need to know what the difference between a single stick and a birch stick bundle is?  Or how Krampus makes that basket hold so many of the wicked? Read on for all the twisted details of the weapons Krampus and his minions employ!
  •  Yeti—Abominable snowmen, or allies of the Migo? In this article we investigate the Yeti as myth and legend. Further, we explore the Lovecraftian connection with this creature and the Migo, and present a Yeti that bridges all the above, and is refreshingly new and dangerous!
  •  Onward Retainer, starring the Legion—The ninth installment of our adventuring comic in an old school style, brought to you by Joel Phillips!
  •  Wyrm Words—A word puzzle of all the Gygaxian words in the ninth issue—this way, a definition is never in doubt! Also included are the answers to the Issue #8's Wyrm Words.

SCIENTIFIC BARBARIAN No.6 is a special Science & Sorcery issue! THUNDARR THE BARBARIAN! I mean... what's not to love!

Till Next Time Friends!

Trudging Along!
6 months ago – Sat, Aug 26, 2023 at 08:10:19 AM

Though many a vine crossing our path has tried to trip us up, and the very trees of the Eastern Forest have opened their gaping syrupy maws and swallow of few of you whole, there is yet a light at that seeps through the sickly canopy to shine down, and lo! Doth in the revealing, an end is in sight!

In other words... All the files have been approved by the printer (no more monkeying around with that!) and the test proofs will arrive at my doorstep within the next week or so! (And there was much rejoicing!)

Dungeon-synth on Bandcamp

I have sent out all the download codes for the album. Be sure to check your spam folder if you don't see an email from OWL KNIGHT PUBLSING @ GMAIL. These codes came directly from Bandcamp, so if you have any trouble using them please reply back to me from the email I sent and I will provide you with a working code.

The Final Live Play?

Tonight! 7pm EST on the Goodman Games Twitch Channel I'll be running the lads through the (last?) session of our playthrough. Who will survive the horrors of the ancient keep and keep their sanity in tact? TUNE IN TO FIND OUT!

And if you missed the last to sessions you can watch them here:

 Auf Wiedersehen!

Two updates in one day?

*poof!* Yep! I totally forgot to include this bit of news in the last one, so apologies for the multiple updates.

Heimat der Katastrophe released the album on Bandcamp and plenty of you are asking if you'll be getting a code to add it to your own Bandcamp libraires. The short answer is YES!

The long answer is... Now that it's been released on Bandcamp I can finally send out the codes. This is an arduous task in which I must send each and every one of you a separate code to the emails you've provide via Backerkit. This email will come from my Owl Knight Publishing Gmail account, so be on the look out and check your spam folders (just encase) and give me about a week before you start beating down the door looking for the code haha!

See ya! *poof!*
