What's up next, clash?

 I'm starting work on a new version of Volant using StarCluster 4 rules. Volant - and Lowell Was Right! - were the last of the StarCluster 3 game written, and were where I came up with Template Trees, So I can get some ideas from the trees in the old version for the new one, but they will have to be re-written for the new game as the skills are handled completely differently. I will be using the lighter version - and StarCluster 4 is light already - of the rules found in Sabre & World which will suit the pulpiness of Volant very well. Next will be a StarCluster 4 version of Lowell Was Right!, which will also use the Sabre & World rules version.

 We are almost finished with the Outremer setting. I am working on the last few Paths of Power. When I release it, I will remove Blood Games II, OHMAS, and Outremer from sale everywhere. We plan topublish other settings and toolboxes for Blood Games 4 in the future.

Blood Games - Outremer Setting

 I am now working on The Outremer Setting for Blood Games. This is setting information with new Paths of Power, Character Species, Monsters, and Template Trees. The Outremer Setting requires both the Blood Games  main book and the Blood Games 4 Renaissance+ Tool Box. This product will completely replace the current Outremer game, finally letting me drop the Blood Games 2 product line.

Blood Games 4 Renaissance+ Tool Box released!

 I have been working hard on this supplement which will open up Blood Games 4 like a cactus flower in moonlight! It covers game worlds set in the time between the early Renaissance and late Victorian eras. New Association options, new PC Species sheets, new Paths and Quasi-Paths, new Template Paths, New Bestiary, and a new way of creating Chimeras!

I have been running a game to test it out and we are having a blast! Police detectives in a magic-friendly Victorian London - dealing with Hags and Dragonets, Basilisks and Hippogriffs, and all the strange varieties of magical mayhem.

A Hint of Blue Released

My eleventh album, A Hint of Blue, was released this morning on bandcamp. Here is the link: 

https://clashbowley.bandcamp.com/album/a-hint-of-blue

Two of the songs have roleplaying links:

Planetfall is based on an In Harm's Way - StarCluster game I ran featuring a whacko bunch of drop troopers nicknamed the Odd Squad.

The title song, A Hint of Blue, was composed and performed in character by an NPC in my Jeshen Space game.
