A sample of THUNDERBOLT FANTASY, a Japanese/Taiwanese 布袋戲 (glove puppetry) series, which just started airing in those two countries earlier this month.

It is a wuxia story, but set in a fantasy world (thereby avoiding the political problems of having it set in China).

Adamant Entertainment is pleased to present the first in a new line of Thrilling Tales products: Pulp Villains!

Each Pulp Villains release will detail a nefarious non-player-character, ready to be dropped into your pulp-genre Savage Worlds game, fully statted, with details on their methods, motives, special gear, henchmen, allies and more -- along with a collection of adventure hooks for their use... all for just $2.

In this installment:

If there is a name that causes a shudder to go through the underworld, and worry even the hardest of mooks, that name is VIOLET. She's only been in the business a handful of years, but she's left behind her a trail of bodies and broken souls. Around her, people die silently, or choking on their own blood, or just taken away screaming. She is the most methodical assassin on the market -- an expert in poisons who the bosses always want to keep busy. Because if she isn't occupied with one task or another, she might get bored -- and everyone is terrified of what will happen then.

Love that series. I ended up buying it on DVD and watch it now and then. I love that the core setting book actually has the stats for a Goose (and references Tales of the Gold Monkey). I love this setting! Well worth the price.

Haven't been on G+ in 6 months -- my Art Institute faculty email was gmail-based, so over the past semester, any time I went to google, it was under that account, and I just never bothered to set it back. Now that the teaching gig is over, however...

Getting back up to speed! Another new pulp adventure for THRILLING TALES!

TOMB OF THE DEAD takes the heroes to North Africa at the request of an old friend, who has discovered something important in the dry dust of the Sudan. Even before arriving, the heroes are thrown into danger as forces are aligned to stop them at every turn -- and once in Darfur, things only get worse. Soldiers have disappeared from a local fort, and the heroes may be too late to stop a mad German archaeologist from setting an undead scourge loose into the world!

Gamers:  What do you think are the coolest innovations created under the OGL?   I’m a big fan of 13th AGE’s One Unique Thing.  You?
