One of our big goals is to get all of our 2014 games done, playtested, scheduled, and written. So what are we working on? Well, we can't tell you all of it, but here are some quotes heard around the house lately. Maybe there's a clue or two in there.
Hey, you ever play those games about kids raising monsters to compete in tournaments across a fictional world? Us too. Did you ever want to have an RPG about it? We thought so. Now you can.
Introducing -U- Settings: Monstera Ball! It is a full Setting for any game system and a full mini-RPG since we've included our popular -U- Essentials rules inside. So pick up your copy and begin playing in this fun little Setting about kids training monsters to compete in a monsterous sport across the land.
You know the problem with making card backgrounds for games? choosing the right colors. I mean, it is easy to say "red card". But which shade of red? The one that looks like blood, or the one on the bashful rose side? Thank goodness we will be selling the source files for these card backgrounds so someone else can feel the same... er... fun.Card backgrounds coming soon from A'n'SR!
Thanks to a terrible story from a fellow game designer losing his card game layouts, we are starting a new line of products. We are going to offer downloadable card layouts for you to use in your game. For $2.00 you get some PNGs. For $10.00 you get PNGs plus a GIMP file with all the layers needed to make it your own.Hopefully, this will help that 1 poor game designer and many others. Just give us some credit, don't repackage as yours, and they are yours. Each image works with DriveThruCards.com and TheGameCrafter.com poker card layouts. Each image has a "hole" in it for you to put your own artwork in. Look for our first card set soon.
We've got a new RPG system in playtest. it is going great. Key feature: the ability to resolve character checks by picking a number between 10 and 1. Cool, huh. More to come.
By far, -U- the Game of Stories is our biggest money maker. We are releasing 5 new -U- books this year to support those who love to play with the rules-lite, universal game. To celebrate, we are offering a special bundle of the Core Rulebook plus all of our Options books, plus maybe a little more for just $5.00. That's a lot of savings. The best part is, it includes our very under-rated Creating Setting book that, honestly, is the most used resource around the A'n'SR house.
So, if you have any -U- game or Powered by -U- book, go get this bundle to expand your library of a great, rules-lite, character-driven game.
