    Info Kaidan: the Gift (Part 1) now available!

    Gamer Printshop and Dementia 5 Publishing has just published the first installment of a three part introductory mini-campaign for Kaidan: a Japanese Ghost Story setting, called The Gift: Part 1

    The Gift - what begins as a simple escort of a gift to a powerful lord in a foreign land leads to a series of uncanny events that risk more than the lives of a party of adventurers, rather the fate of their eternal souls. Deceit, vengeance and dark revelations follow the party as they explore a dark fantasy world called Kaidan: a Japanese Ghost Story setting. Kaidan is a breathtaking empire of samurai, ninja and undead lords rich in legend, culture and nightmares.

    The Gift is a mini-campaign arc and an introduction to Kaidan, a dark fantasy setting of oriental myth and gothic horror. It is a world sure to make the bravest adventurer’s blood run cold.

    The Gift: Part 1 - features 13 full color maps (by yours truly), dozens of illustrations by Mark Hyzer and Simon Turnbull, and cover art by Jan Pospisil. The adventure was co-written by Michael Tumey (me), Andy Champagne (publisher), and Andrew Chirgwin (Juggernaut1981)

    For the first 30 days of sales, for a limited time, you can download The Gift: Part 1 PDF for only $3.99 (regular price will be $7.99)

    The adventure is available from all the major RPG online stores, however, I only earn partial income from those sources, however I earn 100% of the profit from purchases from my Kaidan website, so please purchase from the following link:

    Its cheap, its my first publication, I hope you like it - please order to make it all worthwhile!

    Post That's strange??

    I just followed the link and its priced at $3.99, so I'm not sure what's $2 more, however, if you have some credits at RPGNow and it gives you a better deal, by all means, get it whereever it easiest for you, I'll still make a profit.

    I don't understand these games at all but the best of luck with selling an absolute shedload of these.

    Not that you need a real answer, as yours is more a rhetorical question and comment, however, just to be thorough, consider this...

    You're an author, correct? Consider "these kind of games" as a novel being played live, where the game master is the author or story teller and the characters within the story are being played out by those participating players. Since the storyteller can't force the characters in doing things, he/she is merely guiding them through the plotline, where as the characters make their own decisions based on their available skills at overcoming obstacles, people, monsters, situations provided in the story.

    There are all kinds of complex rule mechanics, use of dice to determine random outcomes which is the physical guide that sets limitations or permits allowances based on an individual characters skillsets.

    To an author's point of view, an RPG game is your book being played live and the possible outcomes may differ based on what the characters do to best follow the plotline and achieve success. RPGs are story-telling games.

    This might not interest your participation in one, but may help you understand what all us gamers pursue in playing them.

    Does that help?

    Well it's not that I don't understand the basic premise as you describe it, not understanding the mechanics involved would be a more accurate way of putting it. I know dice are involved and a GM and others who follow various maps and doodads.
    I hope you didn't take my comment as meaning, I cannot understand why people would play these? Because I certainly didn't mean that.

    Post Not at all :)

    I didn't think that at all, and I did say I was answering a rhetorical question. No offense taken or implied. I was just matter-of-factly describing the basic premise for those that truly don't understand the Gamer's Purpose.

    After all, many Game Masters are really frustrated writers less capable of creating novels, so we satisfy the creative writing urge by developing home brew games, settings and adventures. Game masters and authors have some things in common.
