“Eubertess Orngrove, an eminent hodgepodger among the many mongers of Arowana Way in Murk Corners, once told me the secret to uncovering the quality find was to rummage the piles everyone else ignored. I have found this quite true in the pursuit of esoterica as well.
I am Thaddeus Flott, alchemist and operatic tenor, and I am once again honored to offer you this second miscellany of eclectic hodgepodgery on our great Rainy City.
Rummage away, my friends, rummage away!”
Greetings everyone! Superhero Necromancer Press is happy to announce that we have pushed the button on our next Kickstarter campaign for the Rainy City: FLOTT’S MISCELLANY VOLUME TWO!
Offered as part of Kickstarter’s ZineQuest 3 promotion, FLOTT’S MISCELLANY VOLUME TWO is a system-agnostic RPG zine offering a wonderfully curated collection of random charts, name lists, esoteric and unusual facts, and even more lists about the Rainy City–a doomed fantasy metropolis at the end of the world where the wizards jealously guard their rotting magical tomes, the gargoyles are always watching, the thieves are on the prowl, and the rains never stop!
Like the first volume of the MISCELLANY, which came out last fall, this is built as a companion to A VISITOR’S GUIDE TO THE RAINY CITY (our ZineQuest 2 offering last year). However, being system-agnostic, any busy GM needing quick flavor or interesting content can use FLOTTS VOL.2 for their own campaigns without the VISITOR’S GUIDE. As the good Mr. Flott advises above, rummage away, my friends!
Projected to come in around 7,500 words and 36 pages as a 5.5″ x 8.5″ saddle-stitched zine in black ink, FLOTTS VOL.2 will contain:
- Themed sections for each of the Eight Districts of the Rainy City (Vagabond Bay, Old Town, Levee Town, the Sump, the Mids, Embassy Row, the Headlands, and the Tower Cliffs), as well as sections for the floating pirate haven of Rickety and the flooded Grand Academy of Magic beneath the mist-shrouded Murk;
- A Neighborhood Spotlight section on the odd and magic-infested Old Town neighborhood of Eastcheap, offering more details about the residents, street life, and businesses found there, as well as a detailed map;
- At least fifteen pieces (but probably more!) of original Rainy City art by Bill Spytma done in the woodcut style he used on the VISITOR’S GUIDE; and
- A Tales of the Rainy City section on the Willoughby Ark Auction and Alefest that will serve as a short event scenario made up of interrelated narratives, art, charts, lists, and random tables–offering busy GMs helpful building blocks they can use to run this Rainy City event in their campaigns.
And much much more! We’re going to stuff this one silly, folks!
For more details, as well as draft pages and art, head on over to the Kickstarter page!
Thanks everyone, and stay safe!
