Just a quick little update: We bought the domain about a month ago, and now it finally goes somewhere...


Yeah, yeah, it goes back here; but I'm working on it! While I build the new home of the Owlbear, if you have any recommendations for features you would like to see on, feel free to voice them here.

TBMC follow-up

After meeting with the accountant today, I can now say Tricky Owlbear Publishing, Inc. (more specifically, S-Corp) is a-go! The acct. was friendly and informative (at least for me). Once the paperwork is complete (and our several hundred dollars received), I will assume presidency with Scot as secretary of the endeavor.

We're definitely planning on three releases for our grand opening (besides the 36 Behind the Spells that will shift under TOP's umbrella at RPGNow). BtM: Owlbear will be our free pdf. BtM: Xorn and a new Behind the Spells (Vampiric Touch) will be the other two premiere pdfs. Now, it's back to work!

Talkin' Bout My Corporation

This week, Scot and I meet with an accountant about the ins and outs of incorporating the Tricky Owlbear. Despite getting a good laugh from our name, I'm hoping the man has some good advice for us. :) On the product end, I finished a draft I'm happy with for Behind the Monsters: Owlbear while Mike is working on BtM: Xorn.

And this idea keeps popping into my head to develop a mini-setting where the PCs awake to find themselves and a sampling of all races from their world on an entirely new planet (although they don't know this). In a lush valley, the transplanted races and PCs escape a downed spaceship. Their captors are either dead or escaped before the crash but some of their technology survived for use. It would be cool to keep Dragonstar alive by using the tech from that since it's already "compatible" with d20 fantasy. Eh, probably just an idle fancy but I think adventuring in and investigating a totally new realm would be a lot of fun!
