Ladies and Gentlemen
A momentous decision faces us all, one that could change the course of history. Am I being overly dramatic? Possibly.
IHMN Gothic has proven to be very popular with the players of IHMN and we would be interested to know just how many of you would support its expansion into a full-sized supplement and, almost as importantly, in what format.
The currently published material is about 15,000 words, so to publish it as a complete supplement we would have to create more material to bring it up to at least 25,000 words.
We have ideas for this including; more weird science; a much larger bestiary to include a wide range of western and gothic monsters; adding a number of companies and beasts inspired by the work of such writers as H.P. Lovecraft and Clark Aston-Smith, and; a Campaign section with a number of fully documented campaigns for you to play through. It almost goes without saying that there would also be a backwards compatibility section so all your current companies could enjoy this new material.
Now there are a range of formats we could adopt for this, all of which would require you to shell out some of your hard-earned cash. These include;
- PDF only, sold from a website.
- Print-on-demand through Lulu or Amazon.
- Full colour softback book sold through a wargames company.
It should be noted that we would be financing this ourselves, so we would like to be sure that you are interested in this project. So please make your interest known in the poll below.
Which would you buy (tick all that apply):
Note that if we go down this road all the current Gothic material would remain free on the blog until such time as we publish the supplement.
