Gallant Knight Games and Star Anvil Studios are happy to announce that SAINTS & SYNNERS, Star Anvil Studios’ first campaign setting and release is coming to GallantFunding on April 6th, 2022!
Written by Brandon Verhalen and Alan Bahr, this will be a complete TinyD6 rulebook, sharing a core ruleset with Tiny Frontiers: Revised. Featuring updated and errata’d rules, as well as an overhauled starship system, S&S will be in gorgeous full-color and hardcover, with funding goals related to bookmarks, offset print runs, and more.
Over the next week, we’ll preview samples from the book text, art, and more! Stay tuned, and we’ll see you on the morning of April the 6th!
Gallant Knight Games is happy to announce the Swordpoint Jam!
A year ago, we published our swashbuckling zine Swordpoint, a d100 minimalist take on classic adventures in the 1600s-1700s! It was a fun side product for the GKG team that let us stretch some new skills (Alan started learning layout, so that’s been….a thing), and as we worked over the last year towards the upcoming deluxe edition (with real art, layout and more adventures), we decided a creators jam was the best way to celebrate.
Swashbuckling RPGs are a lot of fun, and we want to celebrate that high-stakes, high-octane, cinematic adventure with the community!
So, without further ado, here are the rules for the SWORDPOINT JAM!
Submissions must make use of the Swordpoint OGL and compatibility license.
Submissions must be original and created for the jam.
Multiple submissions are a-ok!
Submissions can be released where and how you want (DTRPG, itch.io, your own webstore, carrd.co), and priced how you want (we want you to charge for your work, though you don’t have to.
Please be clear about any concerns with content. Swordpoint is supposed to be fun, light-hearted and dramatic, so lean into those elements of swashbuckling adventure!
Please be respectful in your material, obey all applicable laws, terms of service and such things.
If you Tweet or post about it, please use the hashtag #SwordpointJam so we can find it and share! We’re excited to see what you create.
The Jam will run until the end of April, specifically April 30th, 2022 (04/30/2022), though obviously the compatibility license will remain in effect long past that!
Yochai Gal has compiled a great list of public domain art, much of which is suitable for Swordpoint. You can find that list HEREon their website! There’s also loads of public domain art in other places, as well as stock art and other sources for suitable art!
You can join us on the GKG Discord in the Swordpoint channel to talk about these games! Use THIS LINK to join us!
Other Fun Stuff!
Throughout the jam, we’ll be spotlighting clever or fun creations, highlighting favorite swashbuckling media (books, movies and more), and trying to have a good time! We hope you’ll join us.
This is our first attempt at a jam like this over at GKG, so we’re learning as we go! If you have feedback or want to reach out to use, simply find us in our Discord or on Twitter (@GallantKGames) and we’ll do our best to engage!
It’s been a month since we chatted, and unfortunately, we missed our first Tiny Tuesday of March! The GKG team was travelling to conventions (52 hours of driving in total) and we forgot to schedule the post!
Our apologies and we’ll be back in the swing of it as of now! Today is a quiet day, as it’s mostly a day of statuses moving. But in some good news, Carrion Lands and Swordpoint Deluxe are getting ready to hit GallantFunding!
War of the Magi fulfillment is done and the game is out now!
We’ve tweaked the layout of this twice-monthly post to be more clear! Now changes are in white text in a red box, and we’re working on future clarifications and improvements!
And as always, you can visit the Gallant Knight Games Patreon to get access to the weekly playtest and development rules, the monthly TinyZine and loads of free goodies!
Our GallantVerse Origins actual play is over! We’ve finished our Tiny Supers campaign and the team is taking a well-deserved break! If you missed the campaign, and the associated Q&As, you can find them archived on our YouTube channel!
For future games, you can find us on YouTube and Twitch (you can click on the icons below to find those channels)!
No updates from licensees at this time, though we always encourage you to check out their releases!
*Please note our “In Development” is subject to NDA, licenses and we can’t always talk about everything we’re working on
A note on how this is presented: the white headers with black text are designed to be overarching categories, and the black header with white text are designed to be sub categories inside the larger ones! Red text indicates a product/project status has changed or been updated as of this week!
This represents the initial stage of development where we write the first draft
Tiny Dungeon Campaign Guide
A supplement for Tiny Dungeon 2e, this book features an expanded bestiary, tips and tools for creating campaigns and modifying Tiny Dungeon 2e to suit your tables needs.
Trails of the Beastkin (WIP title)
Trails of the Beastkin is a campaign world (akin to Fenmire) for Tiny Dungeon 2e. A setting where you can’t play humans, you are the eldritch children of evil gods who created you through dark magicks. But you have rebelled and freed yourself from evil! Since the world you spent eons waging war on has yet to accept your change of heart, you must flee, searching for a home to call your own.
A TinyD6 edition of the cosmic superhero setting formerly published by Radioactive Ape Designs, Ion Guard will be revisited with new art by Nicolas Giacondino, as well as TinyD6 rules to power it going forward!
This stage represents playtesting, feedback from alpha reviewers and patrons, and revisions to the text
Atomic Highway 2e/V6 2e
Atomic Highway 2e and the next iteration of the V6 system is currently in development and playtesting
This is the last step before the text is locked for layout
H.O.M.E. Handbook – our teen GallantVerse book is in editing and revisions.
This step often happens concurrently with the previous three steps and is relatively independent and so projects here might show up twice on the update list
Swordpoint Deluxe Core Rulebook – Art complete!
Tiny Dungeon Campaign Guide – almost all finished.
Atomic Highway 2e – in progress
Tiny Cavemen -Art complete!
Ion Guard (TinyD6) – in progress
This step is the final step before we prep for release/funding. We try to do this step before we go to funding, though it’s not always viable [especially with larger projects].
Mecha & Monsters: Evolved – in layout!
TinyZine Compendium 2021 – layout done!
Carrion Lands– This game is ready to leave ashcan, and hit GallantFunding! We’re sourcing our options, but we’d love do something with a slipcase.
Swordpoint Deluxe Core Rulebook – the deluxe edition of our early 2021 Kickstarter is getting done! We’re prepping for GallantFunding.
These are projects that are either currently funding in GallantFunding or on other platforms. Please click on the project for links.
War of the Magi has finished funding. Thanks to everyone who supported, helped and talked about it!
Blood & Blade – Test prints are ordered and this game is getting set up for GallantFunding! We’re going to be trying a new format of GallantFunding for this one, so we’ll see how it goes!
These projects are the printer! They might be marked proofing, which means we’re awaiting proofs to ensure the print run is up to standards.
Things That Go Squeak in the Night are at the printers! We’re awaiting proofs to confirm everything is good!
These projects are currently being fulfilled.
Lighthearted (Partner Game): US orders are currently fulfilling, as well as international via DTRPG. We’re 99% done, just handling a few stragglers, issue and more.
War of theMagi has finished fulfillment and is live on DTRPG and the GKG Webstore!
