If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Looking for a Publisher for my Next Book
« on: October 13, 2021, 07:28:14 AM »
So, I'm almost done writing the first draft of my new product, which will be a campaign-setting (Dark Albion Style) set in 3rd Crusade and along the Silk Road.

I'm talking to some of my previous publishers, but I'm open to considering going with a new publisher too. To be a contender you need to have published at least one commercial RPG product, ideally on DTRPG (though it can be other sales points too), and be willing to give my new book priority.

So, if you're a publisher and you're interested, please get in touch with me here on theRPGsite by private message. Or say so in this thread!

I was curious about the Silk Road part. Is that a significant part of the book, or it more focused on the Crusade? Are you covering the route and the cultures along the way in any real detail?

The larger part of the book is actually about the Silk Road. I do a detailed coverage of the entire silk road as it would have been prior to the Mongol invasion, with information on all the major cities and variant routes, as well as lots of details on the different governments and cultures present. Also, lots of stuff from local myths and legends.

Interesting, is it a fully system neutral sourcebook or are there notes for use with L&D and D&Dish games ?

Interesting. The survey of Britain was my favorite part of Dark Albion, and something similar for the Silk Road with more myths and legends is appealing. It's one of those periods/locations in history that just screams out for adventure, but which has been remarkably underserved in RPGs.

It is largely system neutral but the monsters section stats are made for OSR (specifically, Lion & Dragon), and there are a couple of new Lion & Dragon classes, and some magic items that have bonuses/powers done in OSR format. Even so, the vast majority of the book is setting, much like Dark Albion.
