It’s been a very busy couple of months, but work on the sourcebook for 1930s pulp Istanbul continues. We’re about two-thirds of the way through writing, with layouts getting roughed out. Art orders for maps of the city and the Grand Bazaar are going out soon.

Right now, it’s a pretty vanilla tour guide to the city, but the pulpy bits are getting added soon including two adventure scenarios. The page count is anticipated to be about 80 — about the same size as our Queen of the Orient, and expect a similar price structure. There will be both a Fate and Ubiquity version and the planned release date should be August. Inshallah.

bannerI’ve been hammered this semester with a fair amount of work. The college I work at doubled up my classes (yay, money!), and my teaching certificate program (wait, haven’t you taught for years…yes, but not high school so that’s entirely different! But it’s not…), and the usual collection of life stuff, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busting out words on Gateway to the East, our upcoming guide for pulp-era Istanbul. As with the other Black Campbell books, it’ll be for use with Ubiquity and Fate. I’m estimating a final page count of about 80 pages — on par with our Shanghai book, Queen of the Orient. There will be two adventures included in the sourcebook.

Depending on work schedules next semester, I’m hoping to have this out by the beginning of the coming summer, as end of summer seems to be a popular time for the Kickstarter campaigns of other games to fire up and we got lost in the onslaught this year.
