The World Of Prime game materials are now available on DriveThruRPG. In their first day there they've gotten between 40 and 60 downloads each, which is a really good number. I'm hoping the weekend will be even better; but after that, they won't be new, so it should start to tail off.

Best of all, I've actually gotten some reviews. Two five-stars of Ye Olde Shoppe, and one three-star of Hives of Formia. The low rating seems to be because my adventure settings aren't very scripted; it's more of a resource for a DM to generate encounters than a series of pre-programmed encounters. I've been thinking about making some actual modules, in the old style, but I want to get all of the Kingdom and the surrounding areas down first.

The high ratings are because Ye Olde Shoppe is what every DM wants. If all I did was put every price from the PHB and the DMG in one book, with an index, it would have been worth 4 stars. At least. The Bard of Valiant compared it to Aurora's Whole Realms Catalog, which is high praise.

I can't say enough good things about DriveThruRPG. Their tool interfaces are better than Lulu's, and their staff is incredibly quick to help. I've put SotBL up at their sister site DriveThruFantasy as an e-book. Too bad they don't do POD...

A productive weekend

Thanks to the holiday I actually got a lot done. Two Adventure supplements and the shopping guide.

Now I just need to do the Kingsrock guide, and then I'll stop writing game guides for a while and get back to writing novels.

Hopefully these booklets will be useful to people in their own games. The Worldbook, while a labor of love, isn't exactly something you can just drop into your own campaign. But giant ants and techno-magic goblins - who doesn't need more of those?

Ye Olde Shoppe

Well, the shopping guide is finally done. Going to let it sit for a day and do some final edits, maybe see if SC can add any pictures.

Then I just need to revamp the materials I already have to match it, finish up the Kingdom of the Rock, the Goblins, and the Trogodolytes, and I guess I could take a breather then. And finish GtiS.
