Tiny Tuesday – [May 10th, 2022]

Whew and a Bundle!

[Tiny Tuesday – May 10th, 2022]

It’s been a month since our last Tiny Tuesday, and my apologies for the delay. Personal and family issues had me travelling and working in a remote sense that disrupted some of the more scheduled and small workloads (like these). This update is mostly release as projects move forward behind the scenes!

First, The Hero’s Journey 2e, a game we publish in partnership with our excellent friends at Barrel Rider Games is currently on offer from Bundle of Holding! It’s a really great deal, and THJ2e is an excellent, folkloric, and fantastical game to experience. You can check it out at THIS LINK.

Secondly, today only, our classic adventure game of street-level vigilantes and heroes is on sale at DriveThruRPG as the Deal of the Day!

We finished our two April GallantFundings (Advanced Tiny Dungeon and SAINTs & Synners) and the GKG team is working to get ready for our next slew of projects! We’ve got lots going on and we’re prioritizing projects that have been backed up due to the last two years! Advanced Tiny Dungeon is in the proofing stage, and SAINTs & Synners moves along towards editing and approvals!

Patreons received several PDFs and print copies of rewards are going out this month! Soon new adventures and the 2021 TinyZine Compendium will be out to the public.

As a reminder, we’ve tweaked the layout of this twice-monthly post to be more clear! Now changes are in white text in a red box, updates are in blue boxes with black text, and we’re continually trying to improve!

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!

Advanced Tiny Dungeon is out in the GKG webstore and on DriveThruRPG!

The 2021 TinyZine Compendium is out in digital on the GKG Webstore and DriveThruRPG, with print coming soon!

Several adventures released over the last few weeks! For Tiny Spies, you will find The Zurich Rendezvous on the GKG webstore and on DriveThruRPG!

For Tiny Supers, a two part adventure Teeming Shores is out now! You can find Part I For Tiny Supers, a two part adventure Teeming Shores is out now! You can find Part I on DriveThruRPG and the GKG webstore as well, alongside Part II on DriveThruRPG and the GKG webstore!

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)!

We’ll have news of our next Actual Play soon!

The excellent folks at Fat Goblin Games have released two previews of their upcoming TinyD6 Bestiarum Vocabulum!


From the marketing goblin at FGG:

Many HAPPY Returns!

It may seem a little late to be saying “Happy Beaster” and/or “Happy Mother’s Day” but that’s not stopping Fat Goblin Games from celebrating with you still with our new Happy Happy 2022 line of previews for our forthcoming bestiary product — the Bestiarum Vocabulum for Tiny Dungeon: Second Edition from Gallant Knight Games. 

So far in the Happy Happy line, we’ve released a quick 3-monster preview of Beastly Bunnies in celebration of Easter, and we’ve also released a 4-monster preview of Fugly Foes with the kind of faces that “only-a-mother-could-love — but we’re not done yet!


We encourage you to check out all our excellent TinyD6 licensees and translation partners at the links below!

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.

Ion Guard

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

Tiny Dungeon Campaign Guide – all finished.

Atomic Highway 2e – in progress

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].

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.

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!

Advanced Tiny Dungeon proofs are en route to us!

TinyZine Compendium – 2021 is being shipped to patreons, after which it will go live!

These projects are currently being fulfilled.

Advanced Tiny Dungeon is awaiting print proofs, after which fulfillment will begin!


Tiny Tuesday – [April 8th, 2022]

GallantFunding Bonanza!

[Tiny Tuesday – April 8th, 2022]

A busy week has me running behind, and thus Tiny Tuesday is now a Tiny Friday (this week only!)

We’ve launched our two April GallantFundings (you can read more below) or find the details HERE! SAINTs & Synners features a new exciting science fiction world and complete ruleset for Tiny Frontiers: Revised, as well as new Psionics, Ship rules, Heritages and more! Advanced Tiny Dungeon is a more complex “what if” take on Tiny Dungeon 2e and is a delightful experience if you’re wanting TinyD6 with more dials to turn!

Patreons received several PDFs and print copies of rewards are going out this month! Soon new adventures and the 2021 TinyZine Compendium will be out to the public.

GKG & Old Skull Publishing.

Fargo, ND – 03/31/2022

After over four years of working together, Gallant Knight Games and Old Skull Publishing are parting ways. GKG has been pleased to work alongside and distribute Old Skull Publishing products and are grateful to Diogo for his support and partnership over the years.

From Alan, publisher at Gallant Knight Games: “Diogo is a dear friend, and the last several years of working together have been great. I’ve learned so much from Diogo. He’s got big plans for the future, and to enable those plans, the way GKG and OSP work together has to change! So we’re working with Diogo and OSP to make sure they’re enabled to create the content and games they want, how they want! I look forward to collaborating with him on the future on some of these really exciting plans!”

From Diogo, publisher at Old Skull Publishing: “These last few years working with Alan have been the incredible. I’ve learned so much from him, who I consider a mentor, and a good friend. I’ve reached places I thought I would never been to, and created things I never thought I could. But things are changing, and Old Skull Publishing needs to change too. I will certainly look forward to working with Alan again, and hope we do so soon. So here’s to change, and good friendship!”

For the next few months, the remaining OSP Zine Trilogy print run, as well as the few remaining War of the Magi prints from the previous GallantFunding campaign will remain in stock at the GKG webstore. The Zine Trilogy will be marked at a steep discount, and once gone, the co-branded GKG/OSP zine trilogy and War of the Magi will not be reprinted. 

As of 04/01/2022, all OSP products on DriveThruRPG  will move to the Old Skull Publishing page and any customers who have acquired those products will have their titles migrated in their DTRPG library (remaining able to access their PDFs.) Any customers who have purchased their product through the GKG Webstore will like-wise retain access.

SAINTS & SYNNERS coming to TinyD6 & GallantFunding!

SAINTS & SYNNERS coming to TinyD6 & GallantFunding!

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!

Announcing the Swordpoint Jam!

Announcing the Swordpoint Jam!

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!

RULES

  • 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!

RESOURCES

You can find the Swordpoint compatibility license and OGL in the GKG WEBSTORE or on DriveThruRPG

Yochai Gal has compiled a great list of public domain art, much of which is suitable for Swordpoint. You can find that list HERE on 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!

En garde!

Travel, Tired, and Typos, oh my!

[Tiny Tuesday – Mar 22nd, 2022]

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!
