Serene Fist four is in the final stages of playtesting. It's a system I want to use for the other genres so I want to make sure it works. I'm really enjoying it so far. The figures are drawn and just need colouring and layout. Serene Fist five will be a Wuxia heroes and villains set.
Lots more zombies in there besides furry zombies. There will be lots of regular zombies as well as a few toxic varieties. I finalized the game cards this weekend and will be working on the rulebook editing this week. Still hoping to sneak another set out sometime as well.
I may need to take people up on the proofreading... Playtesting finished tonight and a few changes are being made. There are going to be a TON of minis in this set. Just a horde of zombies of all different kinds. Really fun to playtest this. I hope people enjoy playing it. Ok.. back to work.
This set is HUGE... I mean.. huge. Here is my final artwork that needs colouring this weekend. Rules are out for proofreading... oh my .. I feel bad that it's not out before Halloween (which was my deadline), but I think it will be a better set with the extra time.
I'm looking forward to it as well. The game has been really fun to playtest. I'm releasing the game as a free beta release with this set as I am sure there are still tweaks that it will need to be better. Eventually the game will be a free release and future sets will be expansions that i will release as pay sets.
I have finished colouring the set. There is a mind-boggling amount of miniature goodness in this set. Tonight I will start laying them out as minis. The tedious work begins. The Mini game is still out for editing and will probably require the week until it is finished in any way shape or form.

Looking Good !
Can hardly wait. Watching Walking Dead has made me want to bring my All Things Zombie campaign back from the dead... This set looks like zombies invaded a comic convention. Pure awesome inspiration for a scenario.
Those are awesome. It's unfortunate that it couldn't be completed by Halloween, but I definitely see these as a Christmas present.
Have you considered where you are going with this line next? I'd still like to go back to the Victorian theme at some point. Victorian Edo or Formosa. Docks, warehouses, pirates in cramped squalid conditions. I'd still like to see someone do some Sampans and Junks. Not necessarily for battles, but then again, why not ...
My texturing sucks, but I've recently been playing with sort of an alternate universe idea. Trying to take oriental buildings like torii, temples, bridges, etc and skinning them out in a Sci Fi theme. I see it in my head, but my skills don't get me there. Sort of a Space Ninjas and Samurais deal.
Enough rambling. Whatever you come up with will be great.
okumarts: Thanks mproteau for your awesome work!

mproteau: Mice & Rats Set 1 cutfiles are up! What cute little figures! okumarts - careful not to put things too close to the registration marks - those cards probably won't machine cut as-is because they overlap the top reg mark area Onto set 2!

mproteau: squirmydad - yeah, just got around to trying that, and it seems to be working.

Brave Adventures: Hi mproteau, I embed images on RPGNow etc. from our website. If you only need to embed one image, you could host it on our site. Send me a message if you'd like to try that.

squirmydad: I've just been deleting the S in HTTPS for my Dropbox links and they have been fine.

mproteau: BTW - OBS got back to me, and I should have suspected this. They don't support https urls to images. D'oh. Anyone out there use OBS and host images through some free hosting service? I was hoping to get by without having to pay a monthly fee for anything.

arcticdragongames: Thanks Eric, I'm busy getting Tank Shock prettied up for demos at the AK Battle Brothers Con. I can distribute promos or sell sheets for Mayhem, are you interested?

squirmydad: There are publisher resources there that explain the process. One of the main things necessary for your product to be accepted is an 8.5"x11" cover image at 72dpi in Portrait orientation. Like all of the blisterpack images in One Monk Miniatures section.

arcticdragongames: Are there any boards here that have advice, templates for sell sheets and other helpful stuff for us wannabe publishers? If not, does it make sense to have a Red Shirt Publishers Guild board on the CWF?

mproteau: For the folks that have responded to my question about inserting an image, I'm working with OBS customer service. I emailed them step-by-step instructions of what I'm doing, and their response has been "yeah - that should work" and they're looking into it.

wyvern: Site seems OK today squirmydad; had the impression from the antivirusspeak message maybe one of the page adverts was trying to connect me with a "bad" website.

wyvern: Just a heads-up for Admin here - I'm getting a warning bell from my Antivirus software each time I load a fresh page from the CWF today; not sure why, but needs checking?
