Arcana Creations has always been more of a hobby than a dedicated pursuit. Over the past few years, there has never been a tremendous amount of output and, depending on the year, my efforts have shifted depending on what I saw as priorities at the time. And of course, life and my regular 9-5 mean that all my hobbies -- gaming, writing, reading, painting, and the like all take a back seat.
With 2016 finally coming to a close, one of the reasons I have been quiet this year, is some of the work I've been doing. Instead of writing reviews or chatting up on my blog, one of the things I've been doing is a large editing job on a novel. At present, this is over 75% completed and at the current rate, it should have gone to layout before the end of the month with proofs being done shortly thereafter. Specific details on this release will follow just after the holidays.
That said, there is one title currently being worked on with the tentative title of 'The Shaman of the Mire'. Troll Lord Games has just finished a short, three-day campaign to release two modules that take place in the Darkenfold in their setting of Aihrde for Castles & Crusades. It was a very successful campaign that will also produce a boxed set with plenty of goodies. Arcana Creations has pledged a digital copy of this new adventure to every backer ($10 and up) of the project. Once my commitment to that project is met, it will be made available for general sale as well as a physical print run. The delivery of TLG's kickstarter is slated for June 2017.
Arcana Creations plans for at least TWO other releases in 2017 but I don't want to get ahead of myself. In the meantime, there is A LOT of work to be done but I am enjoying it. However, one of the things that will need to be completely OVERHAULED before the end of the year is the Arcana Creations website...
