Gifts of the Elder Gods

A duellist in a dying city facing a weapon of fiery death, not to mention temptation.

Two fur trappers hunted by a spirit of hate that feeds on the very fear it engenders.

An arrogant apprentice to a vain wizard finds himself in a race to unlock secrets hidden for centuries.

MacBeth, beloved King of the Scots, faces his last day and learns his name will damned.

A cunning sorcerer has decided he will not be a victim, he would rather be a victor.

These are the wizards and warriors that populate Gifts of the Elder Gods. Join them in their adventures, touched by magic and the supernatural, with wits and weapons of mysticism or steel to overcome the snares of diabolical enemies.

Gifts of the Elder Gods is the new short fiction collection from Fraser Ronald. You can find it at RPG Now and Drive Thru RPG. It is available in PDF, ePub, and mobi formats, with print-on-demand coming soon.

October’s Sales

October wasn’t much of a month for sales. The free product I released (Operation Nearscape: An Osiris File) did fine, but the point of releasing was to get feedback on it and gauge interest. I got a good review, but that’s about it. I don’t think I’ll be moving forward with the Osiris Files.

Kiss My Axe is slated for release this month, both PDF and print. That should get things moving. In December, I’ll be releasing the adventure Suffer the Witch, and then we’ve hit the end of my release queue.

What will happen after that? I don’t know. I’ve completed the first draft playtest document for Centurion: Soldiers of Rome. I might see about crowdsourcing that through Indie-A-Go-Go since Canadians can’t use Kickstarter, but we’ll see. Until Sword Noir and Kiss My Axe earn back their investments, I’m not keen on putting more money into another game, especially since my family can really use the money right now.
