Aaaaaand The Illuminati Treasure is live in Fate and Ubiquity versions! When your Christmas party interrupted by a car crash, the driver — shot and dying — begs you to get his journal to safety. A journal with research leading to the lost treasure of the Illuminati! The race is on between Nazis and mobsters, the Freemasons, and the characters to find the treasure before the others do!
Set in 1937, The Illuminati Treasure is a fast-paced pulp adventure scenario and weighs in at 22 pages and $2.50.
We’ve got another new adventure scenario in the final stages of production. The Death Jade has gotten bumped repeatedly the last month due to issues with getting cover art, but hopefully should be out by the end of February.

So Black Campbell Entertainment has been up and running since August, but we didn’t start putting out product until October. In the last two months, we’ve put out three adventure scenarios (or modules for you old timers, like me…) for a total of six booklets.
I really wasn’t expecting a lot of traction. I’ve self-published before, so I’m aware of how slow the dribble of royalties can be for an e-book. And role playing games are a niche market of publishing. Add to that, I’m doing stuff for 1930s pulp games (although Victorian stuff is coming!), which is even more niche….a niche of a niche. So a cubbyhole in the publishing industry.
That said, we’re already exceeding my expectations on sales.
So I just wanted to personally thank everyone who worked hard on these books — Jim Sorenson, Matthew Bohnhoff, and Bill Forster, not to mention Susan Rhymer, who puts up with this and has lent her PDF wizardry to get the file sizes down.
Even more so, I want to thank anyone reading this who bought a copy of White Ape of the Congo, or Zugspitze Maneuver (which is suddenly selling very well, particularly for Fate), or Murder on the Hindenburg.
Lastly, I also want to thank those folks who have been reading the blog — whether it’s only a few posts, or those who have been regularly reading over the last eight or so years since it went up. I really, truly appreciate it.

White Ape of the Congo is selling gangbusters for Ubiquity, and decently for Fate.
The Zugspitze Maneuver is selling well for Fate, but very slowly for Ubiquity.
What to make of this? No friggin’ clue, but it’s an interesting bit of data.
