March 2015 Update!

It’s been an exciting few months since our last update here – Aperita Arcana for Monsters & Magic is in print, available through both Amazon and RPGnow.

Aperita Arcana for Fate Core is in playtesting, and we hope to have it available in PDF at the end of April, with print versions following as soon as we can thereafter. If you’re one of our Kickstarter backers at $10 or above, you have access to the playtest version – contact us for the URL if you missed the announcement!

Our first year was successful – we actually made a small profit as a company! We’re hoping for an even better 2015!

Collectanea Creaturae for Monsters & Magic PDF released!

Our first PDF has been released to backers at the $10 level and higher – Collectanea Creaturae for Monsters & Magic!  We’re very happy to have reached this, our first major milestone, and are eagerly anticipating releasing the Fate Core version in the next couple of weeks!

Physical copies have been ordered from the printer as well, and we should be getting them in about two weeks.  Once we have them, we’ll be sending them out to our backers as well!

The front here may still possibly change – we may go with white text with a black shadow instead of the black text here.  The image, though, is set.

The back cover below is finalized – I don’t foresee us making any changes to it now.

A New Year, a New Beginning

Welcome to our web site!  It seems appropriate that we’re launching it today, on the first day of 2014 – especially since this is the first day of our company’s official existence!

Now, if you’re aware of us at all, you know we’ve been running a Kickstarter since late November, and you might know we’ve been working on the monster book that we’ve come to title Collectanea Creaturae for around six months… but today we’ve only recently filed the paperwork to make this idea into an official honest-to-God company, and January 1st is what we chose for our start date… so this is the official birthday of Ebon Gryphon Games!

Things are looking well, with our Kickstarter succeeding well beyond our expectations.  (Not beyond our wildest dreams, but we’re gamers – our dreams tend to be big!)

We’re looking forward to bringing you Collectanea Creaturae and its companion Aperita Arcana – and in the more distant future, our working-titled Zombie World and our vampire story game … and cast no shadow.  We hope the new year is good to all of you as well!

For sticking around and reading this, have a new bit of artwork – a cover mockup for Aperita Arcana!
