Time for another poll! I am trying to figure out what book to go with next. As is always the case, I have more ideas than I have time and energy. If you look back on my timeline you'll see that the last poll actually helped choose the next book: The Forever Diamonds, which just came out. So I do tend to listen to these polls, even though it is my final decision which way I go. Without further ado, your choices are:

* A System Sourcebook: Using licensed mechanics systems, I would create a system book for Encryptopedia, including creating stat blocks and the like for all of the characters created in the books.

* A Romance & Intrigue sourcebook. Intrigue is not the same as espionage, although they have similar aspects. This could, however, dovetail into Encryptopedia stories.The sections would be Coming of Age, Courtship, Consummation, Legacy, and Dynasty. We'd talk about the arcane, divine and political ramifications of romance, and I'd probably provide in depth detail on the te'ohm system of magic (energy work).
* A Fantasy Catastrophe systemless sourcebook: this would cover three kinds of catastrophes; a Mongol-style horde invasion, the failure of arcane magic, and the death of the Gods. I'd go from pre-catastrophe, to the first signs, to the onslaught, and finally the aftermath.

* Player Folios for Encryptopedia: These would go deeper for each type of Agent Roles listed in Encryptopedia: Herald, Crypter, Shade, Fixer, Gadgetsmith, Demonia, Breaker, Grunt, Spook, Snake, Eyes, and Wetworker. These would be short, inexpensive releases until they all get combined into one book as a Player's Guide for Encryptopedia. I'd be offering a discount off the price of that book for anyone who purchases the folios along the way: I hate double-charging people for information!!

* Something else...don't like any of these!

Hi there, I'm Sam Chupp, happy to be a Local Guide level 3. I'm interested in the "inside scoop" on events and so forth. I'm a freelance writer and work in tech support. Plus if there's any way I can help out a fellow guide, I'd love to try.

More is Merrier!

Another entry in the burgeoning Fantasy Espionage sub-genre!

Evil Hat has released, “Pay What you Want”, the following supplement for Fate Core:–A-World-of-Adventure-for-Fate-Core

House of Bards focuses on the political side of intrigue and espionage. If you are interested in focusing on the shadowy world of Espionage in your House of Bards campaign, Encryptopedia will be an excellent supplement for House of Bards.

HI all! I'm Sam. Lately I have been creating systemless sourcebooks for fantasy espionage stories through DriveThruRPG e-books. Next project will be a romance and intrigue sourcebook for the fantasy genre.

My books are inclusive. I take some extra effort to make them so. Are they perfect? No. Are they going to hit you over the head with how inclusive they are? No. But they are.

Take for example, the characters in the latest book “The Forever Diamonds,” which came out yesterday. ( )

Of the 15 characters, 7 are female, 7 male, 1 is non-gendered. 9 are People of Color, 5 are White, and 1 is a reptile (very pretty color reptile though). Two of the men are lovers. A woman has a crush on her supervising officer, who is also a woman. There’s at least two asexual people. There are differing body styles – not everybody is “Body beautiful.” One of the men is disabled and has to wear a prosthetic arm and legs (I wish everyone could have magical limbs!).

But is it a big deal? No. I only bring it up as a point of interest.

I don’t need a medal. I don’t expect any cheers, or to be carried on the shoulders of the downtrodden. I am just this writer and I have written this book. That’s all.

I bring all of this up because it wasn’t hard to do. Didn’t take any extra time. So I encourage my other game designer and writer colleagues to pay attention. Next time, if you have a chance, try the inclusive way. It just makes sense.

This is a trailer for my new book, The Forever Diamonds!

Deal of the Day worked! I got 37 sales of Encryptopedia at half price in the 24 hours at DriveThruRPG.

I discovered it's a "Copper Seller" - copper is not the best, but it's better than nothing!
