Outland Arts Insider News letter issue 1

Welcome to the first issue of Outland Arts Insider, our bi-monthly email newsletter. This report covers everything Outland Arts has in the works, including games, art and assorted books. Our flagship property is The Mutant Epoch, a tabletop adventure role-playing game, as well as the art, fiction and other merchandise in the works to support this post apocalyptic milieu. We also produce stock art sets for gamers, publishers of fantasy novels and games through our Fantasy Clip Inks line, along with limited edition lino prints, and a wide assortment of merchandise through various online fulfillment sites such as

 

The big news is that we are aiming to release The Mutant Epoch at the end of October, PDF versions being available from RPGnow, Drivethru RPG, Your Games Now.com, and lulu.com as well as our recommended option of print on demand (POD) available through lulu.com and RPGnow.com .There will also be a limited release of print copies available to retail outlets in Kamloops, British Columbia at High Octane Comics and Collectibles and hopefully All Aboard Games. The suggested retail price for the physical Hub Rules book, which includes membership in the Society of Excavators and access to all the growing source material found in the memberís only section of the coming website, is $27.99. The PDF only version will sell for about $12.99

There will be a book launch event at High Octane sometime in very early October 2010. Standby for more info on the date and time for this and other events.

Direct mail order from Outland Arts.com will follow soon after the book launch event as soon our new site is up and open for business at the end of October.

In other news we want to thank all those who came by our Outland Arts booth at BigCon 2010 in Kamloops, British Columbia. I especially want to thank Cody, Eric and Jon for sitting down for a beer and a game session after the first day of the con to try out the soon to be released mini-adventure titled Beyond Red Crater. I hope to be continuing that adventure at All Aboard Games as soon as possible!

 Also, I want to thank all of you who sat down and rolled up a character. I have the stack of character sheets next to my desk and still need to draw the portraits for each and get them back to you at one or the other game shops in Kamloops.
Thanks are also in order to Clive Lovett for all his work organizing the convention along with the sponsors ourselves Outland Arts, All Aboard Games and High Octane Comics and Collectibles. Additionally, thanks go out to Bill Frymire of frydesign for loaning us the display panels for our booth and the adjacent art show.  Finally a big thank you goes out to Nathan B. for bringing me a huge sample of green stuff to sculpt some miniatures with. I've tried the two part compound and love that I don't need to bake the figures after I sculpt them, and can add the green stuff to existing minis to enhance them. My kids and I play a 25mm fantasy adventure game whenever time permits.

We will be at BigCon 2011 with a lot of new books for sale, as well as even more awesome post apocalyptic props besides the chain gun which was such a hit this year!

In The Pipes

Upcoming products which will follow close on the heels of The Mutant Epoch hub rules book will include Issue 1 of Excavator Monthly magazine, as well as the release of Mall of Doom, our first adventure. Other books in the works include Pitford, Gateway to the Ruins, The Crossroads Region Gazetteer, and much more.

We also have a few new sets of the ever popular Fantasy Clip Inks in production, including Fantasy Spot images one and two, Magic Items, and Fantasy Publishers Ornaments set one

Target Site

In future issues of this newsletter we will use this slot to highlight changes, new sections or additions to our website.

Gear Up

In this space we will showcase a few new items at one of our online print to order suppliers; items such as new gear, apparel and posters available through our outland arts zazzle.com store.

Sightings

Here we're going to add the very best post apocalyptic links to any real world events, scientific reports on weird creatures, freaks, cloning, GMO, robotics, weapon systems, as well as fictional media like books, movies, comics, computer games, etc. As we release a wider range of products we will expand this to reflect other lines, such as miniatures, survivalist resources and more.
    This issue we do have a few things you might want to check out if you are at all interested in the Post apocalyptic genre

Contest Winner

Every so often we will need to announce the winner to one of our contests. Several issues of Excavator Monthly magazine present contests and we need a way to let everybody know who won. Contests include the 1st annual Post-Apocalyptic photo contest, giveaways, random draws, PC (player character) dead pile additions, and more, with prizes including limited edition lino prints, free TME products, original art, cards, posters and other great merchandise.

Ongoing Game

Whatíre we playing at? Here we give quick update on our own RPG sessions using the Outland System, what the group fought, what rank they are now at, which PCs died, where they went, and more.   Donít worry, we wonít tell  you about our characters nor get long winded with this, but we may add a few images now and then.
           Currently I have two groups that I GM for, one from BigCon who are playtesting Beyond Red Crater, and the other is deep into surviving within the Mall of Doom adventure.

The Outland Arts Insider newsletter will be archived to the Outland Arts website and be accessible to those not on the current mailing list.

Please feel free to forward this on to anybody you think might be interested in The Mutant Epoch or the post apocalyptic genre. If you do get this and aren't on the mailing list, please drop us a line and sign up by clicking here.
