MYTHIC D6 status update

MYTHIC D6 update and my new BFF Brian Isikoff

MYTHIC D6 Status Report

Hello Everyone, remember me?

The books are almost to port!

Once they are through customs, they will be ships to the warehouse and distribution points. Once that’s all settled I can start shipping the books out to the backers.

I hope to have the process well on its way and done by the end of August. That’s my hope.

While I’m waiting for the book, I’m also working on other MYTHIC D6 project sand I hope to have all the stretch goals finished.

As an aside

I made the trip to the Bay Area to run a special game of MYTHIC D6 for Brian Isikoff. He was owed a game, and I was excited to run it.

Some may know Brian from his podcast 2D5 in a Random Direction

And as promised, I ran a game of his choice using the MYTHIC D6 system. We settled on a Star Wars KotOR game, and it was a blast. I hope he enjoyed the game because I thoroughly enjoyed running it for him. We played upstairs at Endgame in Oakland (if you’re in the area check the store out).

It’s a great store, and I enjoyed Brian’s company immensely. He’s a great guy and a very clever role-player. When the game was over, I lamented that we didn’t live closer. He’s a great guy and always welcomed at any table I sit at. He’s a good human being with a tremendous amount of character and generosity. I appreciate him as a person, and I look forward to visiting again to hang out and talk some more.

What’s the status of MYTHIC D6?

MYTHIC D6 Status Report

Hello Everyone, remember me?

Jerry D. Grayson, Gold Medal winner of the 1996 Navel Stuffing Championship held in Muncie Indiana?

Skin tag eating bronze medal winner 1997?

Elbow lotion application champion 2003?

Arepa juggler silver medal winner 2010?

No?…fair enough, it was a long time ago. Ahhhh my heyday

Its been a while since I last updated you on MYTHIC D6. I’ve been busy putting the book together and making something presentable that everyone can enjoy. I’ve also been plugging away at Bastion, Terra Oblivion, and a few other projects.

I’m also sluggish, self-involved, and really enjoy watching B-Movies in my spare time…so there’s that.

What is the status of MYTHIC D6, what is going on with all that Kickstarter money? Well, beyond getting a cool tattoo of a manatee on my face, I’ve been buying art, paying editors, and doing the layout.

The book is done and at the printers…don’t believe me, look at what I got in the mail yesterday…

Geek Girls Rule! #432 – This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

In case some are unaware, I’m involved with New Agenda Publishing. It’s a new publishing endeavor I’m excited about, and I hope once you learn more, you’ll be thrilled too.
I read this on the GEEK GIRLS RULE!!! Website today and it made me giggle but also offered some insight into what I’m about and more importantly, what NAP is about (yes, the acronym is intended)

“NEW AGENDA PUBLISHING is a consortium dedicated to promoting diversity in the RPG community through our hiring and choices. We want to amplify underrepresented voices and help them tell new stories from their perspective. We want to bring more people of color and especially women of color to the table, and we think the best way to do that is by hiring them to help us create the games and worlds they want to play in.”

Geek Girls Rule!!!

Ok, so for DECADES the clarion call of the cis het white dude nerd has been, “If you don’t like it, why don’t you make your own?!”  (Imagine me saying that in the whiniest, most nasally voice I can manage.  I still have a cold, I can get really nasally right now.)

So, a group of POC nerds did exactly that and founded New Agenda Publishing.

New Agenda is made up of Misha Bushyager, Jerry Grayson, and Eloy Lasanta.  All three of them have some serious game design cred, and I for one am super excited about their upcoming projects, whatever those might be.  If you want to check out their cred, follow the links, guys, I’m only doing so much homework for you tonight.  I’m still kinda sick.

Less than a month in, the whiny posts have already started on RPG.net, reddit and Enworld.  I…

Project: Mythic sneak peek

Project: Mythic!

Project: Mythic is moving along and the MYTHIC D6 book is almost done and ready for consumption.

What is project MYTHIC?

Superheroes vs. Monsters! This is the world of Mythic, a world where superhuman heroes battle the forces of a shadowy dimensional incursion, while dealing with infighting and betrayals that threaten to tear their lives apart. Until recently, Earth’s history was pretty much as we know it today. With one exception…

At the end of World War II, superhumans emerged briefly and fought in several battles before dropping out of sight once again. Some conspiracy theorists claim that it was a hoax intended to intimidate the enemy, while others claim that a shadowy cabal of superhumans now rule the world from an orbital satellite. Whatever the truth, nobody saw a superhuman for the next 60 years and most people believed them to be a myth, or just some secret service agents in capes.

MYTHIC D6 Progress Report

Almost Done!

MYTHIC D6 is in the final phase of the layout, and the artwork is coming along. Now that the holidays are over we can go full steam ahead with all the loose ends and get this done for everyone. I hope to have the book complete and ready for the printers by February.

Project: Mythic, the core book’s setting, showcases the rules in a superheroic horror setting inspired by B.P.R.D, Fringe, and Supernatural.

I’m so excited, and can’t wait to show the world the finished MYTHIC D6 core book!

MYTHIC D6 still in full effect!

The MYTHIC D6 Kickstarter ended a few weeks ago, and now the real work begins.

Tons of stuff going at once to get MYTHIC D6 finished and out the door. December is a funky month with everyone doing holiday stuff, but January brings new energy to the MYTHIC D6 project.

Even though we didn’t reach any of the world book stretch goals, they are still in the works, and I have art samples to prove it.

 

MYTHIC D6 Refining Area

Those that have the Beta copy of the game (remember, you have access through the Kickstarter) can look over the book and relay the gaffs they find to me through the comment section on the KS or over at RPG.net. Any help is appreciated, and I want to hear what everyone thinks about MD6 (just made that up. Now I want to listen to the MC5s)

Thanks again for all the PMA.

Talk to you soon

22 hours left to back MYTHIC D6

Less than 22 hours remain…

That’s right folks, there are only 24 hours left to back the most significant Kickstarter in the history of D6 system kickstarters in November. Yes, its oddly specific but I do not lie. Never has there been a more exciting Kickstarter called MYTHIC D6.

Be a part of the excitement!

The Kickstarter ends in 24 hours and you….YES YOU, have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor of a cultural paradigm shift in RPG history. Tell your children you were there when the skies opened, and MYTHIC D6 descended from heaven.

It’s up to you now!

Tell a friend, spread the word, and sing the praises of MYTHIC D6 as it moves over the gaming landscape.

Back MYTHIC D6 Now!
