In Other News....

We're on course to release issue two of Excavator Monthly Magazine on or about the 15th of each September.

Additionally, the art and edit phase continues for Pitford: Gateway to the Ruins, although exactly when the 188 page book will be released eludes us right now.


In The Pipes

As this newsletter covers all that Outland Arts is involved in, we'd also like to mention our Fantasy Clip Inks line of stock art sets. We already have Warriors sets 1 and 2, Spell casters set 1 and Dungeon Portals sets 1 and 2 and more are on the way. What we have in the works and due for release in the next few weeks are Fantasy Spot Illustrations sets 1 and 2, Magic Items set 1, Publisher's Ornaments set 1, Fantasy Map Makers Elements set 1, and other sets to follow.
    These images are aimed at RPG publishers, indie authors, game masters looking for art for their home brew creations, or players searching for a high resolution image for a favorite character.


Target Site

While not new at our site, many of you who recently signed up for the newsletter may not be aware that you can check out previous issues of Outland Arts Insider at our website where we've assembled an archive. We've also decided to post this current newsletter on the page. By having the newsletter on the website, readers can check it out when away from their usual email access, such as at a work computer. http://www.outlandarts.com/TME-OA-outlandarts-insider-newsletter.htm 


Realms of Fantasy Magazine gave us a great review!  http://www.rofmag.com/reviews/the-mutant-epoch/
While I still can't find a copy of the August issue in my city, and just ordered a print copy, I was able to see the online review by Matt Staggs who ended the glowing TME review with "Gamers looking for a stand-alone game system for wild science fiction adventuring would do well to consider The Mutant Epoch."


Wasteland Weekend

The post-apocalyptic genre covers a wide range of timelines, disaster scenarios, tech levels and degrees of science fact and fiction. The Mutant Epoch is a science fantasy setting, while The Road Warrior/Mad Max films are more of a survivalist fantasy. The Waling Dead series and other zombie apocalypse movies are their own thing altogether, although I am Legendís zombies are not undead creatures but rather the result of a virus.

Where Iím going with this is that while The Mutant Epoch world is post-apocalyptic, it is also set in the far future and involves powers and creatures which would appear magical to any near survivors, such as those depicted at the Wasteland Warriors event. Here is a brief word looted from their website:

 Wasteland Weekend is a three-day post-apocalyptic party in the desert.  Friday, September 23rd to Sunday, September 25th 2011.

Join the hundreds of fans coming from all over the United States (and beyond) to gather in the Southern California desert.  Set up camp at our wasteland compound, surrounded by specially-built sets.  Costumes are required and post-apocalyptic campsites and vehicles are encouraged.  Live for three days in a world pulled straight out of the Mad Max movies, beyond the grip of so-called civilization.

Top DJs from all over will provide the soundtrack, fire dancers and bonfires will light up the night, and modified vehicles will shake the earth with their engines. Donít miss it! Tickets are available now!

Although lacking cybernetic implants, mutations, advanced relic weapons or robotic minions, this event looks awesome and the photos a great resource for TME gamers looking for inspiration, NPCs and possible involvement. Iíd love to attend this someday.



RPG Pondering: Top Five Role-playing Games

 Tetsubo57, the gentleman who gave The Mutant Epoch a fine review last month, has another youtube video up where he ponders his Top Five role-playing games. Can you guess one of the RPG's he favored? Tetsubo57 has a ton of other commentaries and opinions on a wide range of topics. I put the youtube videos on when inking. He is a well spoken, well read and thoughtful indie broadcaster and I think he will do even greater things with the audio-video medium.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9qYhhq3l3I

Artist Spotlight

Jonas De Ro
It is required web surfing for you all to check out this German Artist' post apocalyptic scenes. Holy cr_p is this stuff awesome! You can also get a print of New York Ruins. Poor New York, they always seem to get every alien invasion, monster attack and zombie apocalypse that comes along.


Elfquest Comics Free

I kind of grew up reading a lot of Elfquest books and comics and always had a huge appreciation for the author-illustrator team of Wendy & Richard Pini. Iíd even go so far as to say what they did inspired me as an author to learn to illustrate, do web design, and illustration and produce various creative indie works of my own. It took awhile, but now I do this full time.

            Anyhow, you can now get all the Elfquest comics for free at their website: http://www.elfquest.com/


Youtube video The Accidental Sea

Some of you probably live within driving distance of this place, the Salton Sea and if somebody hasnít made a PA film using this location, they should. Interestingly enough, one of the comments below the video states that the first Fallout film is being shot there, which would be cool.


The summer is the busiest time of year for so many people, including us at Outland Arts. Nevertheless, we have been very productive and gearing up for an active fall. Adding Excavator Monthly magazine to our publishing schedule is a challenge all in itself, yet we are still equally focused on the larger source books and adventures, new SOE memberís only content and other Outland Arts products which have nothing to do with RPGs or The Mutant Epoch. Thanks for your interest in our creative endeavors and stay tuned for more.
