Renewed, Refocused and Returning

We're back.....

Thank you to everyone who expressed their best wishes regarding the cancer treatment -- it was successful, and now I'm ready to get Adamant Entertainment back into the swing of things.

During our hiatus, I took a long look at our production schedule, and decided to re-focus our efforts -- concentrating on the lines which are successful for us. This has resulted in the cancellation or alteration of other lines -- we only have so many hours in the day, after all, and can't afford to have our focus spread across so wide a field.

Here is where Adamant will be concentrating our efforts:

  • Thrilling Tales: This is our flagship line. It has been very successful for us, and we've carved out a valuable niche for ourselves as the first name in d20 Pulp. More adventures are on the way, including our first-ever "serial adventure", The Crimson Emperor: a five-part adventure series that will be released weekly, from March into April of this year. We'll also be continuing our licensed conversions of Hero Games' acclaimed Pulp Hero adventures. Sourcebooks are underway as well, including Perils of the Orient, a Pulp Villains supplement written by novelist C.L. Werner! Thrilling Tales Theatre will return, with another exciting serial cliffhanger in mp4 format, plus PDFs adapting elements from the serial for game use!.

    The big news, though, is the launch of Thrilling Tales Quarterly, a brand new fiction magazine, available in bookstores and comic shops starting this Summer. The magazine will feature brand-new stories by some of the top authors in the pulp-revival and gaming fields, featuring new characters, and new adventures of classic characters as well. (The linked site only features the main page so far -- watch for more features as they debut over the coming months)

  • D20 MasterKit: d20 fantasy remains the bread-and-butter of the PDF industry. This line, which features our top-selling product (Corsair), will continue to offer players and gamemasters utility products for use in their home campaigns. Products on the way include The Sharp End: Sword by Conan RPG designer Ian Sturrock; A system for handling NPCs in fantasy or modern d20, based on the innovative rules found in Spycraft 2, and much, much more.

  • The Imperial Age: Our line of Victorian-era products for use with d20 Modern and d20 Past will feature releases every month of the year, including The Gamemaster's Guidebook to Victorian Adventure; Imperial Age: British India; Imperial Age: Engines, and more, including a tabletop miniatures wargame set in a unique Victorian SF campaign world!

  • MARS: Our long-awaited planetary romance RPG will launch soon, beginning with a stand-alone core rulebook which will be available in PDF, softcover and limited-edition hardcover formats. We've kept people waiting for this one long enough! Support for the line (adventures, etc.) will be scheduled largely depending upon the response to the core book-- if it sells well, expect a full line.

  • M&M Superlink: While we're pleased to support the World's Greatest Superhero RPG, we've been disappointed by the sales of our monthly ezine, Amazing Triple Action. We've come to the realization that M&M players and GMs are more interested in specific-use supplements, rather than general magazine content. To that end, ATA will be cancelled, but our Superlink support will continue with individual supplements and adventures. (Subscribers to ATA will receive these products for the duration of their original subscriptions)

  • Buccaneers & Bokor: The product line that launched our company will continue as the quarterly source of piratical d20 goodies.


Keen-eyed readers will note that the announced-as-forthcoming lines Omega Briefing and Star System have been cancelled. Our plate is pretty full as it is -- we may re-visit these concepts at some point in the future, but for right now, they've been shelved.

Thank you for your continued support. We're proud to have you as our customers.

Glad to hear that all is well and you're back in the game. Do you have a hard date yet for Mars, or is it just "soon"? ;)

Awesome!

Glad to hear that your cancer treatment was a success! I'm guessing your dermatologist/doctor has suggested regular checkups in order to nip it quick should it reappear. Hopefully it doesn't return.

I'm also glad to hear that you've decided to focus on a handfull of lines vs. spreading yourselves out too thin. There's a saying about one who tries to accomplish too many things gets none of them done. Maintaining a smaller line and being able to release product in a more reasonable timeframe works out better for you and us customers. I'm hoping MARS does well - you've gone through quite a bit of hassle trying to get it out.

Thanks for keeping us informed,
Jetboy
