[Now Available] The Incompleat Olden Lands

By James Mishler with Jodi Moran-Mishler
 

Nine years late and more than a few details short, here finally is the Incompleat Olden Lands, the gazetteer of my first new world.
 
Boy howdy, did I learn a few things NOT to do with building worlds with this one. Lessons that were still not learned for a time; took a while for the lesson to take, so to speak. Biggest lesson – start small, not big! Too much, too many details, too many things to juggle in the design and development eventually bogs you down and burns you out.
 
I got a good bit along with this one. Maybe three-fifths of the way, perhaps somewhat more, from a glance. Some sections are mostly done; other sections are skeletal, and some are in-between.
 
THIS PRODUCT IS INCOMPLETE AND DOES NOT DETAIL THE ENTIRETY OF THE OLDEN LANDS!
 
The Incompleat Olden Lands includes the following sections, some more complete than others:
 
Humans of the Olden Lands (Complete)
Demi-Humans of the Olden Lands (Complete)
Humanoids of the Olden Lands (Complete)
Languages of the Olden Lands (Complete)
Political Divisions of the Olden Lands (Various levels of completion)
Geography of the Olden Lands (Various levels of completion)
Complete Monster List by Area (Complete)
Complete Resource List by Type (Complete)
Coinage by Realm (Complete)
Titles and Order of Precedence (Very Incomplete)
Gods of the Olden Lands (Incomplete List Only)
 
I must emphasize, THE CAMPAIGN INFORMATION INCLUDED HEREIN IS INCOMPLETE. YOU WILL NEED TO FILL IN MANY DETAILS TO MAKE COMPLETE USE OF THIS CAMPAIGN.

[NOW AVAILABLE] Limited-edition, limited-run copies of James Mishler Games Books

Gary Con XIV has come and gone, and it took me most of two weeks to recover from four days. Whew, what a show!

While it was a busy show, I still have copies of the five special print products I printed for Gary Con. 

These are now for sale, US sales and shipping only.

Each book is priced as listed below. A full set -- one of each book, five books total -- costs $70, including shipping. Shipping is in a medium-sized flat rate box via USPS Priority Mail (tracked and insured for $50).

Books will be shipped bagged and boarded, and with bubble wrap and/or packing peanuts in the box.

If you are only ordering one or two, they can fit in a USPS Priority Mail flat rate envelope; shipping then costs an additional $5 above the total for the one or two books.

The five special, limited-edition, limited-run print products are as follows:

Barbarian, Demi-God, Dragonborn includes the PDFs of the Barbarian Class, the Demi-God Race, and Dragonborn. $10.

Ghosts – The Incorporeal Undead includes the entire manuscript from the PDF. $20.

Hercynian Grimoire #1 (Vol. 1, No. 1) includes the entire manuscript from the PDF. $15.

Myrkridder, Ogres, & Vampires includes the PDFs of Myrkridder – The Demonic Dead, Ogres of the Olden Lands, and Vampires of the Olden Lands. $15.

Quick Start Race & Class Guide includes the entire manuscript from the PDF. $10.

Other than a full-cover cover, these are all in black & white, with no new art or other fancy bits.

There were ever only 41 of each of these printed. The first prints, to test the print, are my personal copies; the first of the 40-print run went to my wife, Jodi, as has always been the case with all my print products; and the second went to Dan Proctor of Goblinoid Games. 

These will NEVER AGAIN be reprinted in this format; in fact, except maybe for Ghosts, they are likely to never be reprinted in ANY format, though I cannot promise that.

[James Mishler Games] James Mishler Games 40% Off Sale!

James Mishler Games is having a 40% Off Sale!

To celebrate the return of in-person gaming at Gary Con, James Mishler Games is having a 40% Off Sale on all PDFs!

Yes, you read that right – 40% off! That is to celebrate that 2022 is my 40th year of playing role-playing games!

You know I don't go in for sales at all anymore, so you won’t see a sale like this on James Mishler Games products… probably ever. OK, maybe I’ll do a 50% off sale in 2032. So, if you can wait that long

But if you can’t wait, buy now!

The sale ends on Monday, March 28th.

Speaking of which, if you make it to the convention, stop on by Booth #104 to check out our convention exclusives! We also have products from Goblinoid Games, Arcane Library, and Geoffrey McKinney, as well as some surprises!

[Gary Con XIV] Hope to see you at the Convention!

Hoping not to put a Hex on the whole thing…

But every time I have announced I was going to Gary Con in the past, something has intervened. I’ve had to miss more Gary Cons than I’ve had a chance to attend…

But here goes…

If everything goes as planned, I will have a booth at Gary Con XIV, March 24-27, at the Grand Geneva in Lake Geneva, WI. Booth #118.

Originally it was to be me and Dan Proctor of Goblinoid Games, backed up by our Significant Others… but that was two years ago. For various reasons, it will be just me at the booth, however, I will have both my product and Dan’s Goblinoid Games products and… a few surprises.

This is where I will finally (hopefully) be able to sell the five special, limited-edition, limited-run print products I had printed two years ago for Gary Con XII. They are as follows:

Barbarian, Demi-God, Dragonborn includes the PDFs of the Barbarian Class, the Demi-God Race, and Dragonborn.

Ghosts – The Incorporeal Undead includes the entire manuscript from the PDF.

Hercynian Grimoire #1 (Vol. 1, No. 1) includes the entire manuscript from the PDF.

Myrkridder, Ogres, & Vampires includes the PDFs of Myrkridder – The Demonic Dead, Ogres of the Olden Lands, and Vampires of the Olden Lands.

Quick Start Race & Class Guide includes the entire manuscript from the PDF.

Other than a full-cover cover, these are all in black & white, with no new art or other fancy bits.

There were ever only 41 of each of these printed. The first prints, to test the print, are my personal copies; the first of the 40-print run went to my wife, Jodi, as has always been the case with all my print products; and the second went to Dan. 

So there remain 38 copies of each to be sold.

These will NEVER AGAIN be reprinted in this format; in fact, except maybe for Ghosts, they are likely to never be reprinted in ANY format, though I cannot promise that.

The prices will start out at their lowest on Thursday, and slowly increase each day until they are their most expensive on Sunday. Counter to normal methods, but there is madness in my method.

The five will be offered together as a set with a discount (as long as supplies last).

If any remain after the show, I will sell them here.

As I am the only monkey at the booth at this show, my time during exhibit hours is taken up. Stop on by to chat even if you are not interested in buying something. And even if you are not interested in chatting, as I mentioned, there will be some surprises, so you never know what you might find!

After exhibit hall hours, I hope to run or play in some pick-up games (if I have the energy). I hope to run some Labyrinth Lord and Mutant Future, and might bring along some other games, as well.

Hope to make it there this year, and if so, hope to see you there!
