MYRIAD DOOM, the conclusion to the Myriad Novels trilogy, now available

Myriad Doom coverBack in 2013, we were finally able to realize our dream to bring you a science-fiction game unlike any other. And with the help of pledges from people like you, we were able to make the Myriad Song role-playing game a reality. We were able to assemble a unique team of writers and artists, from the glory days of New Wave sci-fi to the modern era.

When Matt Howarth proposed the idea of writing more stories set among the Ten-Thousand Worlds, we were eager to press onward and ever on. With your help, we were able to publish Myriad Quest, our first graphic novel, which showed more mysteries of the strange universe, We followed up with Myriad Threat, which ended on a cliff-hanger where our heroes were more lost than ever. And now…

Now is where the past ends, and the future begins.
MYRIAD DOOM is now available

~That’s right. There’s no crowd-funding, no pledge drive. The book is available for immediate sale, right now. The book that you helped make, available for a single click.

  • The exciting conclusion reveals the true purpose behind the Syndic’s hoard
  • We learn the fates of Rhys and Naril, as they struggle against inter-planetary organzations larger than any one might control…
  • And a cavalcade of guest stars, as all cameo characters that appeared in a previous book have a return appearance in the pages of Myriad Doom.

For a limited time, printed copies of Myriad Doom will be on sale for 20% off. You can order from OneBookShelf.com by tapping this link.

If you still need to get copies of the earlier volumes, too, bundles of Myriad Quest, Threat, and Doom are available in both electronic and print form.

USAGI RPG now available – all profits from sale to go to Stan Sakai

Usagi RPGBased on Stan Sakai’s Eisner-award winning comic-book series, USAGI YOJIMBO: Fantasy Role-Play is a stand-alone game set in a fantastic version of Tokugawa-era Japan. While the warring states have been brought to peace under the watchful eyes of the Shogunate, danger still abounds in the form of greedy bandits, scheming warlords, and even the supernatural. But a house that heaps evil upon evil cannot stand …

Players take on the roles of brave samurai warriors, clever schemers, wise priests, and other heroes as they battle against the forces of corruption, despair, and evil in Sakai’s fantastic blend of historical and fantastical Japan. More that a source-book for the Usagi characters and stories, this game stands apart as a combination of story-telling and role-playing — where players work together to craft tales of heroism and drama. A unique system combines simple rules for complex results — even allowing characters to trade old abilities for new ones as the world changes with them. Play along side Usagi, Tomoe, Gennosuke as they fight Lord Hikiji and his minions … or create whole new stories of your own.

All profits from sales of this game go directly to Stan Sakai, creator and artist of USAGI YOJIMBO.

You can order your copies directly from DriveThruRPG, by clicking this link.

Time-Travel Discounts: The World Ends Yesterday And Only You Can Save Tomorrow!

ChristmasInJulyNewAd-2015-DTRPG[1]Our top-tier chronological scientists have been working round the clock to … round out the clock, as it were. While these discrepancies in the calendar are mostly undetectable to lay-persons, factors such as the rotation in the earth and variations in the chip-sets of smart watches have made it necessary to alter the fabric of time itself, and to pass the savings onto you.

Firstly, Christmas has been moved and extended to July 23-31, 2015. (Our calculations have determined that it’s impossible for one man with even nine tiny reindeer to deliver presents to all the world in anything less than 170 hours.) To subsidize any economic inconvenience you may suffer, Sanguine Games and DriveThruRPG are working together with the Christmas in July sale. Save 15% to 25% on Sanguine titles and other fine books. Click here to see the sales listings.

Ironclaw OmnibusSecondly, our scientists have determined that even though the record sales of Ironclaw merchandise at Anthrocon this month might look like good news … the growing demand started a “butterfly chain” that will cause an “eschatonic apocalypse” which has “levels of alarmism beyond all comprehension.” We urge you to not travel back in time to shoot your own grandfather. Don’t get mad at him, things were different then.  Instead, you can click on this link to order the Ironclaw Omnibus at reduced pricing, just like those salad days of yore.

These sales will only last until July 31st, so act quickly. With your help, we can make a better tomorrow before it even happens. Thank you.
